Himouto! Umaru-chan (干物妹!うまるちゃん Himōto! Umaru-chan) is a manga and anime series written by Sankaku Head and published on the magazine Weekly Young Jump. The series follow Umaru Doma, a high school student who appears to be a well-mannered student at school, but reverts to a lazy slob when at home with her older brother, Taihei.


The series focus on the exploits of Umaru Doma, a high school student who lives with her older brother Taihei. At school, she appears to be the perfect student, with beautiful looks, top grades and excellence in everything she does; but once she gets home she reverts into a chibi version of herself who spends her time laying arround, eating junk food, playing video games, reading manga and watching anime, along with depending on Taihei for all kind of stuff. Umaru will use different alternate personalities to become friends with some of her classmates: Ebina Nana, an unconfident girl from the country who is in love with Umaru's brother; Kirie Motoba, a shy girl who develops a yandere relation with Umaru; and Sylphynford Tachibana, a half-japanese overly entusiastic and competitve girl who sees herself as Umaru's rival; while Umaru tries to balance those personalities in order to mantain her friendships.
