|Title (English)||Aka-chan & Me|
|Title (Japanese)||Akachan to Boku||Art Sample
|Notes||From the manga by Marimo Ragawa, published in Hana to Yume magazine. (18 vols.)
young hero's mother is killed in a road accident; and his father has to work and (typical salaryman) be away for long hours.
Though he is still an elementary schoolboy he is left to struggle alone with the task of looking after his baby brother. The toddler yells continually and disrupts his homework. That's about it - pure domestic drama.
|Review||It's always a pleasure to find an anime that's a bit different, as this one "Aka-chan and Me" is.|
