17 Animes Like Himouto! Umaru-chan

People are not always what they seem to be, and this is demonstrated by Umaru Doma, who seems to be the ideal high school student… until she gets home, that is! The excitement does not start until the front door is locked. When she puts on her hamster hoodie, she morphs from a well-mannered and hard-working student into a sluggish, junk food-loving otaku. She defers all of her responsibilities around the house to her mature and responsible older brother, Taihei. Umaru understands how to relax and have a good time, regardless of whether she is fighting against Sylphinford Tachibana, whom she considers to be her “rival,” or simply hanging out with her friends Nana Ebina and Kirie Motoba.

Himouto! Umaru-chan is a lovely story that follows the daily adventures of Umaru and Taihei, as they take care of — and put up with — each other the best that they can, as well as the unbreakable relationships between friends and brothers. The story also focuses on the unbreakable bonds between friends.
