What We Think Of Himouto! Umaru-chan

**Warning spoilers ahead**

Himouto! Umaru-chan is 1 of the most relatable anime we have ever watched. It is a masterpiece with so many references to other anime titles and real world companies that we actually have ordered from. Amazon being 1 of them.

For closet otaku that try to hide their love for anime, Himouto Umaru-chan will hit home for you. During anime binges umaru pulls out her signature hamster cloak, pop and potato chips. This anime perfectly encompasses the at-home lifestyle of a long time anime fan.

As Umaru gets closer with her friends, she shows her caring nature and we can’t help but love it. Umaru’s transformations with her hampster cloak are as cute as any magical girl transformation we have seen. Seeing Umaru relax behind closed doors give all of us closet otaku hope to blend in to every day society.

We can’t recommend Himouto! Umaru-chan for anyone that is first being introduced to anime but for a seasoned otaku, Himouto Umaru-chan is sure to satisfy your need for a relatable and wholesome anime.
