Thats why in response to the bizarre image her brother said something like "we live in a one bedroom apartment though".

Although,as has been pointed out apparently their father is extremely well to do, so it could be that the rumors flew out of proportion based on half truths rather than just materializing out of nothing, which makes them all the more pervasive of course.

A different question is WHY Umaru does not live with her father, though. There could be lots of reasons, of course....
Yea, I'm hoping the series gets into the siblings personal circumstances. It would also be nice to see if Himaru has reasons for being a closet-Otaku beyond 'its the premise of the story'.

I have read some of the manga, but not all, so if it was answered or hinted at in the chapters I have read I missed it. I have a few ideas that could be possible, but perhaps such a discussion would be better carried on in the manga thread as a just in case kinda thing.

For all we know the anime may suddenly drop some info on the matter! I hope it will do so as well. ^^

I read the manga as well but as far I can remember I don't remember it being mentioned why she was living with her brother instead of her father. Not even with the latest translated chapter.

I don't recall there being any hints on what their parents do in either the anime or the source beyond what Taihei already said (she just showed up).

Besides, this isn't really the kind of series to go into drama anyway, being more of a comedy/slice of life.

All around fun episode with once again many amusing UMR grimaces. I especially liked the 10 years ago skit showing Taihei's talent.

Another good episode, it shows how strong can bond between siblings be.

Btw, how much old is Umaru and how old is her brother?

Ep 10

I agree...I thought the ep did a wonderful job showing how the sibling bond. Kinda touchin, and in several places. I thought it was effective and liked it quite a bit.

Yup that flashback proves that they seems to be rich as they used to live in a condo/appartment
so the rumor a few ep back about Umaru bing rich and is conected to the Doma corporation might not be a rumor
but why are they living now in that small appartment...
also
Taihie, Bomber and Kanau seems to be in a love triangle where they are vying for Taihei's affection/attention

One possibility is a divorce, with one child going to each parent (this is my theory atm). Taihei went with the mom, and Umaru went with the (wealthy) father, who held her to a strict standard of intellectual, cultural and behavioral standards (remember how well she played the piano?)...possibly after Taihei moved out on his own Umaru eventually joined him since his apartment was near where she was going to high school. Taihei was also a chance for her to unwind in private.

Good sibling bond episode.
Not sure about their circumstances.

But my hypothesis is that while the father is wealthy and all. He's too consumed with work and has no time to spend with family.
Hence, the brother coming home to little umaru surrounded by picture books and such since she's just left alone for the entire day.

Then when the brother got old enough and found a job and moving out on his own, he decided to take her with him because if he's gone, she just be entirely alone.

Very possible regarding the father being a diehard worker with no time for his family.

I guess it could be possible that if the mother was not also neglected she could have divorced the father, or even could have died young, too...maybe even giving birth to Umaru? (I sincerely hope not.)

Regarding Umaru moving in with Taihei, the impression I got was that she came to live with Taihei only a little over a year (or less). This episode indicated several years back when Taihei was in high school himself. Somehow I thought he had been already living alone and independent for a few years before the request came for Umaru to be allowed to live with him (though we don't know where the request itself came from).

For all we know there could be relatives involved in this as well.

so Taihei literally serves as Umaru's secondary mother, i mean just look at his antics, not surprising if a guy also has a crush on him

I don't understand why manga cafe rooms are private. Wouldn't it be more fun if you could read and stuff with other people? Cute episode though.

Now that I think about it, Kanau's unrequited love has been going for over 10 years now. That's some ultimate suffering right there... my condolences, girl. Highschool Kanau, though. <3
