I had heard of the title, but I did not know what it was about; Sasami-san is right up my alley!

The voice actors are excellent, especially for the perverted brother!! Pairing those two characters together works surprisingly well!!

Anything by this director and production company team working together is a must watch for fans, and of course I am one of them!!!!

The quality of the art, the smoothness of animation, and the fun script all work together to make this a great watch regardless of if you are familiar with the story. I don’t think I was the only one who looked up the original storyline after watching this!!!!

The three sisters are cute as well, and I hope the ED stays like it is now!!!

Sasami-san is a super shut-in. She doesn’t try to accomplish anything. It is the brother’s job to feed her, help her change cloths, and take a bath.

It is a very simple scene but is very detailed. But, there wasn’t a scene of her putting underwear on…and what this unmotivated and possibly not-underwear wearing Sasami-san does all day is monitoring her brother using high-tech equipment.

And for whatever reason the world changes, leading to a sudden battle scene which the three beautiful sisters finish up in a hurry! It completely was not what I was expecting, and so I will watch the next episode too!

Shaft! Director Shinbou! I thought this would play out as a love comedy involving a beautiful shut-in, but then suddenly a fierce battle scene!? Is this a battle anime? What is this?

The story definitely makes the viewer think, as the sibling family name is “Tsukuyomi,” and the three sisters are named after the “Three sacred emblems,” all rooted in Japanese mythos. The shut-in goddess was Amaterasu…so Sasami-san is Amaterasu, perhaps? And Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi were siblings…It might not be clear to everyone at first, but the parallels are obvious if you know the stories. This is worth a watch, for sure!

While insisting that she wouldn’t try, Sasami-san tries a little. Just a little is fine, Sasami-san. A little at a time. At first a slice-of-life with the heroine fighting against her motivation, the situation quickly changes. A definite must-see for fans of Shaft production and voice actors. I like the ED sequence, and I’m looking forward to the performance by Azumi Yoshina (Voice of Sasami-san) as well!

From old to new, I’m watching all kinds of anime. Robot, special powers, love, slice-of-life, I will eat anything! My favorites are “Saint Seiya,” “Penguindrum,” and “Pani Poni dash!”
