Characters that made my year – Matsuno sextuplets (12 Days of Anime: Day 6)
And we’ve reached the midway point! I’m incredibly hungover so this is going to be very short – good thing the Matsuno sextuplets from Osomatsu-san aren’t particularly complex to write about!
I honestly didn’t think Osomatsu-san would be worth watching given it’s based on a 60s manga series. Even though I loved the parody laden 1st episode, I still initially dropped the show because I didn’t think the humour would hold up in the later episodes. But damn was I ever wrong! After hearing lots of positive chatter about subsequent episodes I picked the series back up again, and now it is among my favourites of the season.
The characters are great. Each of the sextuplets and the quirky supporting cast have their own unique personalities and catch-phrases, and the staff are having a blast writing weird and wonderful sketches for them – you can tell they are having a lot of fun making this show. If you haven’t checked the show out yet I’d definitely recommend it – it has me in fits of laughter quite often, and can even manage to be very heartwarming at times too. Great show, I’m so pleased it is continuing into the new year.
