Episode Summary


Lactose Overdose
Mitzi buys ten cartons of milk for Shin to use for a school project which he of course didn't tell her about until the last minute. She doesn't want the milk to go to waste, so she comes up with creative ways to use it up, much to Hiro's disapproval. Finally, Shin comes up with an idea to use the milk to take a bath in, but no one counted on Hima becoming a bit too comfortable in the milk bath.

Meet the Parasites
The Nohara's neighbors Michi and Yoshirin are struggling with trying to live off their small budget and end up taking advantage of the Nohara family's hospitality . . . and appliances.

Race for Your Life, Georgie Brown
After Shin arrives late to meet up with his friends, the group agrees there should be a penalty. Georgie and Shin find themselves in a competition with each other trying not to be the last one to arrive at their destination.

    You know what's really awkward? I usually know what to say about T.V. shows whenever I write a review but that isn't the case for this show! As a fan of this show, I'm relatively new so I haven't gotten the time to really understand what it is about this show that makes it tick but whatever it is, it sure is funny! I mean, okay I mean there is some sort of pseudo perverted stuff going on with the kid being naked in every segment in this episode and other stuff I won't get into, but then what would life be without controversy? It would be rather boring! That's why I'm glad there exists shows like this: for our required need of controversy! Where else can you see an entire family take a bath in nothing but milk, a married couple taking advantage of a family's hospitality, or two boys trying so desparately hard not to be late to a play date all in the same episode? I've looked around but I've seen no other show like this one! Maybe that's why I can write such a good review about it. because it's so unique! That's what I want to say about this show for today! Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • In the episode "Meet The Parasites", Yoshirin was playing a "Dating Sim" game on a Playstation-like game console. Dating Sim games are a genre popular with teenagers in Japan.

    • The show title comes from Shin's line delivering during the second short, where he suggests what food to buy. "You can buy gum, gum is a good food to eat."

    • Michi wanting to play the "Gigantic One-Eyed Monster Shooter," refers back to Episode #5 where the man confronting Shin tried to get him to answer questions about the game.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Yoshirin: Hiro, Michi and I have decided to accept your offer to let us hang out here.
      Hiro: (angrily) Oh yeah, I offered to let you stay! Just like Poland invited the Nazis. It's not an offer, it's an invasion!

    • Shin: (noticing all the milk cartons) Hoo-ooh, I can make all the missing children fight each other!

    • Mitzi: You'll have a glass of milk after dinner, then another glass before you brush your teeth, and another before you go to sleep. and then, after you piss your sheets in the middle of the night, you'll get another glass of milk.

  • NOTES (4)


    • Episode Title: Race for Your Life, Georgie Brown
      The episode title, "Race for Your Life, Georgie Brown," is a reference to the third animated Peanuts film, Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown.

    • Living on ¥10,000 a month

      There is a popular TV show in Japan where the participants attempt to live on only ¥10,000 ($90) a month. This roughly matches with Michi's attempt to live on a budget of $90.

    • Meet the Parasites / Race for your Life, Georgie Brown: Title parodies of "Meet the Parents" / "Race For Your Life, Charlie Brown."
