I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying

Okay, so maybe there are some things concerning anime which I'm totally not getting any into my deteriorating brains, or I'm simply selectively ignorant about stuff. For example, I just don't understand how it could be remotely enjoyable to watch an episode that lasts anywhere between three and a half and five minutes. Unlike songs which are easily loop-worthy, it seems more than strange to do the same for an anime episode. Coincidentally, the anime in question which I'm going to focus on today is an adaptation of a four-panel manga (again). I suppose that I could instantly conclude this post and tell everybody to just grab the manga instead. Honestly, is there a nationwide shortage of measuring tapes or something? Okay, I should stop whining and get to the series proper. Titled 'Danna ga Nani wo Itteiru ka Wakaranai Ken' or in English 'I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying', the series was created by mangaka Cool-kyou Shinja. The anime adaptation premiered on October 3rd, and will run for 13 episodes.

This is Danna, or The Husband. His full name is Tsunashi Hajime. Danna was 23 years old at the beginning of the (manga) series. He is an AB-type Sagittarius. Danna is a hardcore otaku who could earn hundreds of thousands of yen per month as an administrator of an online forum. He and his wife met in a shop where he used to work part-time at. Danna is surprisingly muscular. In the anime adaptation, he is voiced by Suzumura Kenichi (of Hitachiin Hikaru and Mikoshiba Momotarou fame!).

Tsunashi Kaoru is The Wife, who is actually a couple of years older than the husband. She is an O-type Cancerian. Kaoru is the typical OL (office lady) who doesn't know much about her husband's world except maybe for the occasional game that he plays. She is also clueless about internet lingo. Initially when they got married, Kaoru had long, black hair (blue in the anime) but she eventually bleached it blond. She loves her job, and smoking. To her husband, Kaoru is a true angel who is accepting of anything. Almost. In the anime adaptation, she is voiced by Tamura Yukari.

Mayotama is Danna's younger brother, even though he doesn't look like one. Mayotama is actually a cross-dresser who has a huge brother complex and is extremely fond of pairing himself up with Danna in suggestive situations. He is a fudanshi and a doujinshi artist (hence the frequent BL moments). Mayotama is his pseudonym. His full name is Tsunashi Youta. According to Danna, Mayotama's doujinshi has fetched considerable sales with more than a thousand copies sold each time at doujinshi fairs. Mayotama is voiced by Horino Sayaka in the anime.

Tanaka-san and Juse Rino are Kaoru's friends since high school. Both ladies are also married like Kaoru; in the case of Rino, her husband is also younger than her. Rino designs masks for a living, and despite the fact that she is married, her looks and stature are those of an elementary school girl. As for Tanaka-san, she works as a doctor and is actually pretty well-versed in internet lingo unlike her friends. An interesting fact about Tanaka-san is that she sticks to her maiden surname even after marriage. Rino is voiced by Kugimiya Rie, and Tanaka-san is voiced by Shintani Ryouko.  

The theme song 'Ii kagen ni shite, anata' is performed by Danna and Kaoru (Suzumura Kenichi and Tamura Yukari). The credits show Danna and Kaoru having an intimate moment while soaking inside the bathtub. Congratulations, you have reached the end of those three and a half minutes. As an incentive (?), please look forward to the next episode! Or you could just follow the manga anyways.

Eccentrically Yours.
