Osomatsu-san Spoilers

Ten years have passed since the events of the original manga. In the meantime, although the sextuplet Matsuno brothers, Osomatsu, Karamatsu, Choromatsu, Ichimatsu, Jyushimatsu, and Todomatsu, have physically grown, their behavior hasn’t changed much. The first episode sets precedence on what type of show that the creators are trying to make by breaking the fourth wall and letting the brothers know that they are getting a brand-new series. They wonder if the modern audience will accept them. The brothers briefly try out being the characters of a colorful bishōnen idol anime, but quickly realize that they can’t handle the fame. Despite being identical, the brothers have vastly different personalities. With the characters all grown up, this has allowed the creators to explore more mature themes in ‘Osomatsu-san’. Like the original, it offers biting parodies to some of the popular aspects of Japanese culture.
