5. Osomatsu-san (Mr Osomatsu)

Osomatsu San

What happens when your childhood TV characters grow up? This is exactly what Osomatsu-san‘s premise is. The Osomatsu sextuplets are from an actual 1960s anime/manga that followed their antics while they were kids but in this particular series, they have… aged horribly.

However, as much as they’ve grown-up their antics are far from it. With each of the sextuplets different personalities constantly leading them into all sorts of trouble and often to irredeemable lows, you’re in for a laughing treat.

It’s not always gags and games for these brothers though as in between all the telekinetic cats, murder mystery and crassness, you’ll find that there are a few tender moments of legitimate brotherly bonding.
