Tetsuo Tosu never expected his daughter, Reika, to be a victim of domestic violence. Suspecting that her yakuza boyfriend, Nobuto Matori, is the perpetrator, Tetsuo decides to investigate him and his associates. But as he searches for evidence at Reika's apartment, the father learns that his daughter is not the first victim and that a worse fate awaits her.

When he is discovered by Nobuto, Tetsuo ends up killing him in the ensuing fight. Assisted by his wife, Tetsuo hides the body in fear of retaliation from the yakuza. To add to the misfortune of the Tosu family, Nobuto happens to be the son of the mafia's head. Considered to be prime suspects behind Nobuto's disappearance, Tetsuo and his wife will have to deploy all their ingenuity to protect their daughter from the yakuza and their ruthless investigation.

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
My Home Wimp packs the promise of being entertaining and a nail-biting suspense thriller, but there are too many problems for it to deliver. This adaptation has low production values and plenty of outsourcing. The composition is dull, the animation a slideshow, and everything about the visuals are unpolished and cheap. I doubt anyone was expecting this to be beautifully animated, but I at least hoped there would be better composition to help establish something resembling a mood; the pacing is also too quick for effective suspense. I don't see any significant inspiration from well-known noir or crime films or any artistry aside from the ...

I hear praise for this show everywhere, but I disagree with everyone who praises this show. I gave it three episodes and found out it really is not something I would enjoy, that is why I am dropping the show and leaving a negative review.

My home hero gives me Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor vibes, especially in the third episode, I loved Kaiji, but this anime does not have the same effect, if you have seen Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor you know the feeling of sitting on the edge of your seat and being absolutely immersed in the plot, getting goosebumps from dramatic scenes and hoping for Kaiji ...

Well this was certainly depressing. However.

Story and characters: 7
The story pretty much explains itself, and really feels like your worse fears come to live. Which truly makes you question yourself. Are you willing to go THIS far, in order to protect your daughter? Your family? To not only kill, but to cover up your actions as best you can, while your backs are constantly against the wall, leaving you ...
