Summer Time Loving, Oh, “Umaru” Why Won’t You Be Mine?

Wakaba looks like an elegant rich daughter, but she admires the trendy “gyaru” fashion subculture. There is also the pure, innocent, fairy-tale-like Moeko. Mao is capricious and behaves in her own way. Nao used to be an athletic type of girl, but now loves the boys-love genre.

Although poor, Maneo, a manager of a mini mart helps her on her journey on being an idol. Being poor cannot stop Miss Monochrome from trying to be an idol.
Why did I choose, Miss Monochrome?

The people of the nation who are watching the broadcast will have the ability to elect the next monarch. The story focuses on Akane, the third-oldest sister who can manipulate gravity. She is shy and desperately does not want to be caught on camera.
Why this Anime with an all gender cast?! Which I usually hate.

- The characters are all family! YES! Better be no incest stuff going on.
- I wanna see if this Anime can go places!
