So, sadly I haven’t watched much anime this week despite it being my last week of break. 😦
I managed to watch one anime and I watched the entire series in one night. I watched Papa no Iukoto wo kikinasai(Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!) which despite it’s title and genre wasn’t all that bad. It’s considered a romantic comedy, Harem, slice of life, and drama but the romance and especially the harem categories don’t fit all that well. It’s 13 episodes long with 1 OVA. I found this anime title on a YouTube video which you can see here.
It starts out with our main character, Yuuta Segawa starting college when his older sister asks him to come visit. Yuuta isn’t too enthusiastic about going since he wasn’t happy when she got married nor that he already had two kids of his own from two different mothers. He agrees to go and is basically tricked because his sister and her husband leave him with his nieces. When they return later they tell him that since he did a good job she wants him to watch them for a month so that she can go with her husband on his business trip. Yuuta agrees and that’s basically where everything starts.
Yuuta is now in charge of his three nieces, one of whom is actually related to him by blood. Sora is the oldest at 14, Miu is 10, and the one he’s related to by blood is Hina who is 3. I’m assuming that because he is surrounded by these girls as well as a college girl that he wants to date it’s been categorized a harem. I don’t agree with this because they’re all nieces and Sora is the only one that has a crush on Yuuta… and the college girl, Raika. Nothing happens between any of them. I guess the romance is that Sora has a crush on him but she doesn’t try anything. Miu does however tease Sora throughout the series about her crush on him.
I think it’s really only a slice of life and drama with a bit of romantic comedy thrown in. This is nothing like what I normally watch but it was still decent. There isn’t really any goal in the story, it just sorta shows them go through the summer as they try and make everything work. It was funny and the characters seemed to have some depth. The story and scenarios Yuuta face seem like legitimate things that could actually happen and it all flows well. They do however throw in a bit of fan service but it’s quick and nothing that bad. Most of it is in the cuts that break up the episode.
If you want a quick series that’ll make you laugh and possibly cry a few times than I would recommend checking it out. If you do just remember not to judge too quickly because the start makes it look like it’ll be different than it is.
I would give it an overall rating of 6/10.
Hope you have a great day and stay safe. 🙂
