Even hardcore action/adventure shonen anime fans need to take a break. Expect boredom after watching 5 anime titles in succession. Note this. You’re not tired of anime’s; you’re just tired of the same genre. This signals the time when you get to look at the broad spectrum of anime titles, from pure gore to something really cute and stupid.
Here’s one that will surely lift your stricken anime spirit: Kaasan – Mom’s Life (Mainichi Kaasan).
I can’t put the story as well as this description from Crunchyroll.com
“A sidesplitting essay in animation that depicts the simple everyday life of career-committed mother and her rather out of standard family set in contemporary Japan. She is, like any career-committed mother is, jaded after struggling with her job and child care all together as she goes through a lot of hardship to keep the balance between her professional and personal lives. But the life is filled with rewarding moments too. Many stories are inspired by incidents in the author’s own life, and their honest and thoughtful tone will surely be appreciated by a wide range of audiences.”
