People are not always who they appear to be, as is the case with Umaru Doma, the perfect high school girl—that is, until she gets home! Once the front door closes, the real fun begins. When she dons her hamster hoodie, she transforms from a refined, over-achieving student into a lazy, junk food-eating otaku, leaving all the housework to her responsible older brother Taihei. Whether she’s hanging out with her friends Nana Ebina and Kirie Motoba or competing with her self-proclaimed “rival” Sylphinford Tachibana, Umaru knows how to kick back and have some fun!
Himouto! Umaru-chan is a cute story that follows the daily adventures of Umaru and Taihei, as they take care of—and put up with—each other the best they can, as well as the unbreakable bonds between friends and siblings.

Main character :
Umaru Doma (土間 埋 Doma Umaru?), alternatively Umaru (うまる Umaru?) in her indoor form, is the main protagonist of the Himouto! Umaru-chan series. She has an unknown ability to switch between two modes: an “outdoor” and “indoor” mode, the latter dubbing her as an “Himouto” by her older brother, Taihei Doma.
My feedback :
As someone pretty new to anime I found this show to be so easy to watch, even though it’s subbed it’s so easy to follow and it’s so upbeat and happy! the second season is definitely needed though! I love all of the characters and seeing them all communicate, just watch the first episode, you won’t be disappointed!
In conclusion, this show is a must-watch if you love cute things and if you are in need of a waifu! If there was any show that you should binge this show has you covered for an amazing couple of hours of fun, cuteness, and laughter!
