Sunohara-sou no Kanrinin-san Anime Cover

Score: 6.93/10

Synopsis

Shiina Aki is constantly being treated like a girl due to his feminine looks so he decides to move to Tokyo to attend middle school in an attempt to change himself. However, what awaits him in his new home, Sunohara-sou, is the kind-hearted caretaker, Sunohara Ayaka. Along with the three female members of Aki's new middle school's student council, Yukimoto Yuzu, Yamanashi Sumire, and Kazami Yuri. And so begins Aki's new life in Tokyo living with four girls.

Repost due to MAL’s “Finished Airing” status, no changes are made.

My initial criticism on this was super harsh, on it being a trash anime that tries to capitalize on the shouta-gal cliché (got burned out by the ludicrous Hajimete no Gal). Oh, how dreadfully wrong I was.

Now that this series has ended, I’m glad that I was able to get a good amount of enjoyment, so much so that this shall go into my Summer seasonal guilty pleasure.

Sunoharasou no Kanrinin-san is at heart, a 4-koma manga to anime adaptation, so don’t go in and expect some plot holes or some insane storyline. It is also another slew of SoL (or Slice of Life) genre-themed anime, what that means is to just sit back, relax and enjoy what this has to offer. That’s it.

4-koma adaptations are a boon a bain, because for this kind of series to work, the script and series composition has to be done properly like a progressing storyboard. Fortunately, welcome in the veteran Fumihiko Shimo (Jun Maeda-quality anime like Air, Clannad, Kanon; Kokoro Connect and few notables), so at least this series has some competency, and he does a great job at that.

Speaking of the characters, there are aplenty, aside from our shouta MC (Aki Shiina) and the gal MC (Ayaka Sunohara, which Aki always addresses her as Caretaker). For once I thought that this anime has some great character design, that is merely done to address the shouta-gal experience between Shiina and Ayaka, but that’s not all! The “Student Council’s” top brass also resides in the dorm, bringing us the sister-centric Yuzu, the playful Nana (Ayaka’s sister), the calm and composed Yuri and the sis-con Sumire, who blemishes at the sight of Yuzu.

The aesthetics is where both Shiina and Ayaka stand out, with Shiina’s boy-at-heart feminine posture, shorts and the oh-so-shy personality a temptation and Ayaka’s large-breasted motherly figure, with her apron and caring behaviour that resembles the sibling (Onee-san) trait a lot.

Silver Link is back to direct the SoL genre again, after a few certain hits or misses, this IMO is a sleeper hit. For some reason (even in the PV), the studio opted for light coloured pastels on the overall aesthetics, and I pretty much got since this is meant to be a light-hearted series to begin with. Moreover, the animation looks clean and concise, so sasuga Silver Link, you’ve done a good job.

And oh how I love the music, especially the OP that is done by the one and only Megumi Nakajima, that’s a super-catchy one if you so wish to desire. The ED is OK by my tastes though, decent but not bad either. The BGM is the same story, in the sense of placements and such, like it was made as gradual follow-ups to those light-hearted obscene stuff that are the irritations of certain characters and such. All this is thanks to underrated music composer Ruka Kawada, for her works which include Winter 2018’s Gakuen Babysitters and works like “Is The Order A Rabbit?” and such.

I know from certain people that they don’t care the shouta-con generic caricature, and just like the failure of last season’s Tachibanakan Triangle (which has some similarities but many differences), another passing of mediocrity. Only the minority who cares enough for this anime will be pleasantly surprised and (like me) will get good vibes from this. I can’t honestly recommend this anime if you don’t care about the acceptance rates I just mentioned throughout this review, but it’s honestly a good pass of time to spend on.

First let me say that this show is appealing to the fetishes known as "shotacon" and "Onee-san". (Older sister) That is older women (usually busty) who are attracted to younger boys. If you are not down with the fetish then its quite likely you won't enjoy this show nearly as much as I did. Oh it is so so good. Story: 6 Not the strong suit of this show, but that's because it is a episodic comedy. Shiina Aki, a young boy who has always been treated like a girl, moves from the countryside to a Tokyo dormitory so he can have a fresh start in middle school. The dormitory known as Sunohara-sou is run by Ayaka Sunohara, a tall, busty, kind, older-sister-type character. All the residents of the dorm besides Aki also happen to be cute girls. They all have very large boobs except for one who is totally flat. Basically it's just 12 very cute and very funny episodes of antics. Art: 7 Really pretty cute. Every character is incredibly moe and soft in design. Ayaka is the definition of a perfect Onee-san. There is just about something for everyone. All the characters are very unique and easily recognized. The background art is fairly standard, nothing stands out. Sound: 7 The OP theme is super-duper cute and catchy. It fits the show perfectly and is a pleasure to watch at the beginning of every episode. The ED theme is pretty nice. It's a nice and wholesome way to wind down from a crazy episode. The BG music does not stand out at all. Most pieces are really quiet and forgettable. It's basically just a bunch of soft, chilled piano pieces. It's fine. Character: 8 It was really tough for me to pick a favorite character in this series because they are all just so much fun. Ayaka Sunohara- If you know anything about Onee-san archetypes, you know Ayaka. Honestly she is a very simple character. Some might even say that she is cookie cutter basic. Ayaka's simplicity does not take a single thing away from this show. It's great to see her interact with the tenants of the dormitory. She is truly the ideal older-sister that all Onee-san loves have been wishing for. Aki Shiina- A young boy who has always been treated like a girl. Mostly due to his somewhat abusive older sister. Aki really is quite feminine. He moves to Tokyo because he wants to become a man. Almost every joke in the show revolves around Aki, the main character. We see a small but sure amount of growth in Aki throughout the show, but mostly we see him getting teased by older girls. Other dorm members: Yuzu, Yuri, Sumire- Mostly 1 dimensional characters that exist to set up jokes. However, nobody is watching this show to see outstanding character development. They're all hilarious in their own rights. Sumire probably being my favorite never ceases to make me laugh. Enjoyment: 10 Yes, I appreciate the whole "shotacon" thing. I can't even say why but it's great. We're all very jealous of Aki's newfound harem. Even if you can't appreciate shotacon, nobody can deny that this show can be hilarious. Anybody who has a taste for ecchi humor will get a real kick out of this show. It's all so simple and a tad cliche, but I PROMISE its SUPER CUTE and SUPER FUNNY. I don't care about the poor ratings on this show. I absolutely will defend this show till my death. Overall: 8 Unfortunately for me laughs and nosebleeds are not the sole thing that contribute to a shows rating. What Sunohara-sou lack in depth and storytelling, it makes up with for it with great comedic writing and timing. (and cute characters) I will never forget my first shotacon show.
