Osomatsu-kun (2015)

Osomatsu-kun (おそ松くん) is a manga series by Fujio Akatsuka which ran in Shōnen Sunday from 1962 to 1969. It has been adapted into two different anime series of the same name, the first in 1966, produced by Studio Zero, and the second in 1988, produced by Pierrot and aired across Japan on Fuji Television, the anime satellite television network, Animax, and the South Korean kids channel, Cartoon Network Korea. A new anime series by Studio Pierrot, Osomatsu-san, began airing in October 2015 to celebrate Akatsuka’s 80th birthday.
This series helped establish Akatsuka’s reputation as a gag comic artist, long before his other popular manga, Tensai Bakabon. Osomatsu-kun has appeared in numerous special issues of Shōnen Sunday. Akatsuka has also included several manga adaptations of routines from Charlie Chaplin movies in the series. In 1964, Akatsuka won the 10th Shogakukan Manga Award for Osomatsu-kun.

Matsuno household has six naughty and mischievous sons (who are sextuplets), led by the eldest Osomatsu. They were grade schoolers back in the Shouwa period, but despite of still living in the same old household, the street view as well as the life style of modern day society have changed drastically.

Voice cast is as follows:
Osomatsu: Takahiro Sakurai
Karamatsu: Yuichi Nakamura
Choromatsu: Hiroshi Kamiya
Ichimatsu: Jun Fukuyama
Jushimatsu: Daisuke Ono
Todomatsu: Miyu Irino
Totoko: Aya Endō
Iyami: Kenichi Suzumura.
music by Hashimoto Yukari(Toradora and Mawaru Penguindrum). You know the thing that really makes Osomatsu-san Great is the great voice acting along with a nice noticeable soundtrack. (TheGeniusBaka@MAL)

Osomatsu-san really has no distinct plot; it follows the daily lives of the Matsu sextuplets, which in and of itself can get pretty bizarre. There’s lots of modern pop culture references, as well as references to the original Osomatsu-kun and gags of the Shouwa era. All of this considered, Osomatsu-san adapts well to the modern anime audience. If you’ve seen or read other series such as Azumanga Daioh, Nichijou, and Gintama (especially if you like series wherein the characters repeatedly break the fourth wall), then you’ll definitely enjoy Osomatsu-san. The show is lighthearted and incredibly funny, with cute characters and enjoyable banter.
