Hello! This is an anime review about the show I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying!!!! This is a short form anime spanning over two seasons with 13 episodes each. Both seasons can be watched on Crunchyroll 🙂

Art Style

i cant 1

The art in this show is very simple. This doesn’t overly surprise me seeing as it’s a cutesy short form show. This style does work for the story however. I feel as though anything more detailed would have taken away from the sweet story it is trying to tell. The women aren’t too pretty and the men aren’t too masculine or otherwise. There isn’t really much else to say :).

Rating – 3/5

Voice Acting

i cant 2

This anime was only released in Japanese; there hasn’t been any word about an English studio picking it up. The Japanese voice actors sound great though. All of the voices fit their characters really well and they portray the feelings they are meant to in a natural way.

Rating – 5/5

The story is where this show shines. It is sweet and simple, revolving around Hajime and Kaoru. These two are a husband and wife who have almost nothing in common. Hajime is an otaku while Kaoru is a ‘normal’ lady who works a typical job. The entirety of the 2 seasons shows their interactions together and how they handle certain marital issues together. While it never gets too emotional, it does veer off into the realms of sadness, happiness, surprise, anger, etc. 

Rating – 4/5

Character Development

I cant 4

Short form anime’ are not known for their character development and this show holds to that. The characters don’t change at all. It isn’t really a story about growing individually. The point they are trying to drive home is how two individuals, who are very different, can grow together. I feel like if Kaoru and Hajime changed it would completely ruin the point.

Rating – 4/5

Intro/Outro Songs

I cant 5

There is no intro song seeing as each episode is only about 3 minutes long. They do have a little outro song however. It isn’t anything special; Hajime and Kaoru can be heard singing karaoke together while a short video of them together plays. It’s very cute and feels like a perfect ending to each snippet of their lives.

Rating 4/5

Over all, I Can’t Understand What My Husband Is Saying is a very cute show that is perfect for anyone who enjoys slice of life and comedy anime. I enjoyed it and I hope they make a 3rd season.

Overall Rating – 20/25

I hope this review helped you to decide whether or not you’d like to give this show a try! Both seasons can be found on Crunchyroll. However, you can only watch it if you are a premium member. Thanks for reading!!!
