Himouto! Umaru-chan, Volume 1 by Sankakuhead is a hilarious manga about a little sister who is perfect in public but is a spoiled, lazy brat at home and drives her brother crazy. This series is complete in Japan at 12 volumes, though the English version has not yet caught up.  We have the first six volumes on Overdrive. There is also an anime, which really illustrates how silly this manga is. 

This is a fun read that is guaranteed to make you laugh. Umaru looks and acts like a completely different person when in public and at home.  It is funny how she goes from a beautiful young girl to a small, weird but cute, otaku slob.  As always, I’ve included a few illustrations to showcase the manga.

This manga is available on Overdrive.
