「パパと呼ないで」 (Papa to Yobunaide)
“Don’t Call Me Papa!”

An anime that deals with strong family values and has not only Kitamura Eri and Ono Daisuke but Horie Yui as well?! Even if this show was absolute garbage (which it is not!), the voice acting talent alone would be enough to keep me interested. But if those names don’t ring a bell or you could care less about Seiyuus and just want a good story, Papakiki’s first episode delivered in both the family moments and fan-service departments — the former stemming from a conversation between Yuuta and his older sister and the latter from some impressive DD Cup size boobs.

In terms of first episodes, I was actually surprised with how much I enjoyed Papakiki. Starting with the art, something I don’t normally fret over, I loved how pretty everything looked. From the character designs to the quality of the backdrops, everything worked together and just looked right.

However, even if Papakiki had the best art in the world, it isn’t going to do any good if the story isn’t compelling enough to keep you watching — luckily Papakiki delivers on both. Honestly, I was drawn to this show the moment I saw the words “family-oriented” due to the fact that this genre tends to have a lot of genuinely heart touching moments. As petty as that may sound, I’m a sucker for an anime that can build up my emotions and toy with them however it pleases. With the promise of a good story focusing on one’s family, I’m excited that an important point about being a family was already made during this first episode. And while it may not have been a huge point, it’s a good start for something that could build into an amazingly immersive experience.

So where does that leave us for a first episode? We have college student Segawa Yuuta (Hatano Wataru) who’s trying to live it up as a college freshman but has everyone in the world competing for his attention. There’s his crush Oda Raika (Horie Yui) who has huge breasts but a strange personality, super player Nimura Kouichi (Ono Daisuke) who’s trying to get it on with every girl possible, and Sako Shuntarou (Majima Junji) the masochist who probably has a lot more dirty fetishes waiting to be revealed. At the same time, there are his three cute nieces: Sora (Uesaka Sumire), Miu (Kitamura Eri), and Hina (Igarashi Hiromi). And even though we didn’t get to see much out of Sora and Miu except for their pantsu, I couldn’t get enough of Hina. She’s just too cute.

At this point, I’m impatiently waiting for the all important announcement about something happening to our little trio’s parents. As you should already know, they will eventually move in with Yuuta and that’s probably when the show will kick it into high gear. The thing is, if you’re like me, you’re already loving this show. Can you imagine what’ll happen if it just gets even better?!

    A series of lulz mixed with a bit of “D’aww and Hnnng”s. I like it. Oh and Hi Haruhi… err Sora. XD Thanks Takaii for covering this. I’m probably sticking to this one for ecchi instead of HS DxD.

  • January 11, 2012 at 1:57 amexia

    this season’s astarotte no omocha.

    • January 11, 2012 at 2:07 amFFF

      The popularity of Lotte’s toy is very low. I wouldn’t predict, but it can have the same financial disaster if they crosses some borders.

    • January 11, 2012 at 4:45 pmZnail

      Usagi Drop is the far more similar past anime to compare with.

  • January 11, 2012 at 2:02 amFFF

    It’s good for lolicons who don’t have real sisters (i adapted this viewpoint from Araragi).

  • January 11, 2012 at 2:12 amFencedude

    I find it incredibly distracting that the girls look like young versions of Yuri from Angel Beats, Riko from Hidan no Aria and Ganaha Hibiki from Idolmaster.

    But still, quite entertaining.

    And Raika is awesome.

    • January 11, 2012 at 2:30 amgecd

      Riko from Hidan no Aria?
      she reminds me of Airi from Onichichi ~

      • January 11, 2012 at 2:56 amukato

        WIN xD

      • January 11, 2012 at 4:23 amjackxu

        OMG! That’s going to ruin my innocent impression of this show. lolz

      • January 11, 2012 at 6:14 amThundershock81

        Now I cant watch this without thinking that lol

      • January 11, 2012 at 8:23 pmSilver

        Actually if you compare Miu’s little devil personality with Riko, you can definitely see the similarity in looks and personality traits.

        However… you just have to bring up Airi… I have only seen the screenshots but now I feel guilty… you evil #$@#%!! Feel my wrath!

      • January 12, 2012 at 1:11 amThe Moondoggie

        You really have to bring that up now? D:

      • January 12, 2012 at 7:17 amProgeusz

        There’s also Mafuyu from Kanojo^3… :>

    • January 11, 2012 at 3:16 amThe_Magus_Killer

      Segawa Yuuta kinda looks like a shorter-haired version of Kamijou Touma. Such misfortune. XD

      • January 12, 2012 at 7:27 amTakaii


    • January 11, 2012 at 8:51 pmbelatkuro

      But Yuri looks like Haruhi, so how do you make of that?

      And I thought the youngest looks more like Mikan from To-Love-Ru

    • January 12, 2012 at 12:52 pmHalfDemonInuyasha

      Also can’t forget Kouta from High School of the Dead, lol.

  • January 11, 2012 at 2:29 amgecd

    many people complaining about its slow pace
    while I find it as a perfect building up

  • January 11, 2012 at 2:41 amraidragon

    I love this show so much^^….I actually prefer this one compared to Nisemonogatari due to its beauty in portraying family life and HNGGGGGGGGG moment (Same reason why I prefer Clannad AS compared to Code Geass R2)

    Btw talking about Airi…Definitely gonna watch that if I have some sinister thought toward MiuXD

  • January 11, 2012 at 2:58 amTaiakun

    …yo yo yo…I want to see the 2nd epi already…yo yo yo…

    Just off topic, it’s a good thing that Rena from Higurashi ain’t here, or this will happen to Hina => http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghLTQwSwmc0

    Oda Raika is, in my books anyway, one of the most interesting female characters of this season…

    • January 11, 2012 at 4:34 amjackxu

      I totally agree with your opinion on Raika. She’s got huge busts plus an odd emotionless personality that brings out a cutesy feel to it. A very unique package indeed.

    • January 11, 2012 at 7:20 pmQuervo

      yo yo yo… T_T

      I want to be spanked by Raika-sama too T_T

    • January 11, 2012 at 8:04 pmjackxu

      Good grief. Now I can’t get the ‘yo yo yo’ off my mind.

  • January 11, 2012 at 3:04 amricz

    I’m doing my best to avoid the “lolicon/pedo” state….but man it’s effing hard :(

    • January 11, 2012 at 8:36 amSparvid

      but man it’s effing hard

      So you failed at avoiding it?

    • January 11, 2012 at 10:02 amTakaii

      You can’t win against Hina. It’s damn near impossible.

      • January 12, 2012 at 1:20 amDa5id

        Hey Takaii, how come your posts aren’t blue anymore?

      • January 12, 2012 at 7:17 amTakaii

        I was responding to comments from work and couldn’t login :(

    • January 11, 2012 at 6:25 pmricz

      Yeah it’s hard :(
      Just hearing her voice is ….hngggg
      I want to adopt her..hina and ushio will be a good team

      • January 12, 2012 at 1:31 amThe Moondoggie

        Heh, I’m with you, but I’m actually holding up pretty well. XD

        Yup Hina. You are just too damn cute. She was so cute blowing the trumpet I felt like I want her to blow my trumpe-*shot*

      • January 12, 2012 at 7:17 amTakaii

        Hina and Ushio.. oh god<3

  • January 11, 2012 at 3:26 amc2710

    Sako shuntaro looks like one of the characters from high school of the dead!!!!

    been waiting for this; can’t wait for more. ^_^

  • January 11, 2012 at 3:59 amDaniell

    Ahhhhh I can tell this will be one of my favs this season!

  • January 11, 2012 at 4:03 amMash

    I hope this show sticks more to the family theme instead of cheesy fanservice. I dunno why but watching this show makes me want to play The Sims. lol

    • January 11, 2012 at 4:29 amjackxu

      I’ll play too, if only the sims in the sims look like cute anime characters from this show.

    • January 11, 2012 at 8:28 pmSilver

      Well from what I read, it definitely maintains the family theme PLUS the fanservice. Nothing wrong with that!

      I don’t see any incest?
      Unless you consider entertaining your 3 year old niece incest…

    • January 11, 2012 at 4:57 amgecd

      incest? where?
      what are you babbling about?

    • January 11, 2012 at 5:26 amMash

      ryuuzaki, the two older children are not blood related with the main character. Also, he is going for his senpai and is more like a father figure to the three girls. Its not incest.

    • January 11, 2012 at 7:07 amLoL

      There are various mangas about this story, wich is a light novel. Each one tells the story from different character views (the general point of view, yuuta’s, miu’s, sora’s and hina’s), and in the one related only to yuuta and his campus life, he has feelings for raika, so sry for you, no incest at sight. Try again.

    • January 11, 2012 at 7:29 amkurochan

      I’m sure YOU are the one that love incest, I don’t see any incest here, your imagination sure runs wild. And the one he like is Raika, and he doesn’t even love the other 3 girls in a romantic way.

    • January 11, 2012 at 7:42 amricz

      I guess what you mean is ” I want to see an incest here”

      Well sorry to disappoint you :/

    • January 11, 2012 at 11:59 amryuuzaki

      oh. sorry i got lost with the story. my bad

    • January 12, 2012 at 12:33 amlotus

      you mean when it was implied that one of the nieces is in love w/ the uncle?

    Has anyone noticed the trend of young cutesy characters being called Hina in anime recently?

  • January 11, 2012 at 5:36 amDokupe

    It makes me wanna go “Pedobear” mode. :<

  • January 11, 2012 at 6:18 amThundershock81

    Good show, going to be one of my favourite of the season I can tell. These types of anime always end up a winner in my books.

    ……..oh and I didnt know Airi had a sister? \(^_^)/

  • January 11, 2012 at 7:51 amKinny Riddle

    So what are the chances of character designer and famed (hentai) doujinshi artist Nakajima Yuka publishing his own doujins for this series? (Ragnarok Online fans would have heard of his “DL Action” series. I’ll say no more as this is supposed to be a “for all ages” website)

    Then again, it’s probably unlikely, I have yet to see Kobuichi publish any doujins for Hidan no Aria and Kore wa Zombie desu ka, or even the famed tonytaka for the Shining Wind game series, suggesting they’re bound by their contracts for obvious copyright reasons. (Still, it’d be pretty cool if they were allowed to)

    • January 11, 2012 at 11:42 amboingman

      Well, damn, I just found Nakajima Yuu’s danbooru section. How the hell am I supposed to have pure thoughts about this series, after having seen his/her illustrations of other series? :D

      • January 11, 2012 at 10:39 pmgecd

        I am always Digital Lovers’s fan far before he/she make ilustration for Papakiki
        and I still able to watch Papakiki with pure tought
        Different story if the illustrator is Oyster or Fatalpulse

  • January 11, 2012 at 7:55 amKinny Riddle

    While Kitamura Eri, Ono Daisuke and Hocchan were all instantly recognizable, I nearly failed to recognize Majima Junji as the voice behind the “creepy otaku”-like Shuntarou.

    Guess I’m more used to hearing Majima voicing cool hunks than fat pervs, lol

    • January 11, 2012 at 9:59 amTakaii

      I get you. For half a second, I thought that the fat guy would have a pretty sexy voice, something that would have blown my mind.

      I was terribly, terribly, wrong.

  • January 11, 2012 at 8:25 amMR.KLAC

    yea who would WHAT voice of ryuji of toradora is now voice a kouta hirano lookalike who got beaten a horie-minorin who is sob sob sob http://randomc.net/image/Papa%20no%20Iu%20Koto%20wo%20Kikinasai/Papa%20no%20Iu%20Koto%20wo%20Kikinasai%20-%2001%20-%20Large%2013.jpg

    oh yea keep in toradora va in it

    ryuji- kouta hirano lookalike
    minorin- sob sob sob aka oda
    ami – miu
    ryuji’s mom – mom of 3 sisters

    only missing is taiga & kitamura

    • January 11, 2012 at 6:52 pmZhinvu

      Now that just beats all. I only found out it was Hocchan and Ryuji’s VA after you mentioned it. Looks like Minorin and Ryuji got close after all…just not in the way anybody expected.

  • January 11, 2012 at 9:29 amjoeshen

    How do you feel about the buildup up the episode? I ask since it did kind of jump around and have more of a “live action drama” feel to it more than anything; yet in the end it barely scratched the surface on anything.

    You know that I’m watching this because of you Takaii [literally] (we’ll forget completely that I’m the big Kitamura Eri and Horie Yui fan for a second here) and that now that I know how the story goes, I feel that you’ve drawn me into another time suck where my Tuesday nights no longer exist for actually studying but to deduce every little nuance.


  • January 11, 2012 at 9:34 amPera

    I didn’t plan watching this, but I ended up downloading this when it came out.
    It really suprised me how much I enjoyed this, and it reminded me a lot of Aishiteruze Baby! Which I just loved.
    I really hope this anime provides many aaaaawwwhhh moments like in Aishiteruze Baby did.

  • January 11, 2012 at 1:55 pmchaos

    What genre is this show?!

    If you mix family with erotic, don’t you get incest? And you’re niece is still legal in Japan, right?

    • January 11, 2012 at 3:43 pmThe Moondoggie

      There’s a way around that. If you read the LN or the manga, you should know that.

    • January 11, 2012 at 8:48 pmMash

      Geez, how many times do I have to say this? This show’s main genre is family. There maybe a few fan service shots but the rest is about him being a father figure to the three girls.

    • January 12, 2012 at 12:39 pmjackxu

      And hence, the name of the show.

  • January 11, 2012 at 2:00 pmchaos


    Takaii, you need to look at those again. Double D?! More like what I got all throughout grade school, Double F…

    • January 12, 2012 at 7:20 amTakaii

      I couldn’t decide if they were F’s or D’s since the angle of the shot probably makes them look a bit larger than they are D:

  • January 11, 2012 at 3:51 pmThe Moondoggie

    The anime did not disappoint!

    I have been reading the LN and the manga so I know the feel of the story and as far as it goes, the anime has the same feel.

    And there is no incest in the story. The only girl related to the protagonist would be the loli-Hibiki(lolz).

    And to all who would recognize the name Nakajima Yuka of the “DL Action” doujin fame, I advise you to forget for a moment that he was a doujin artist.

    And so: Papa no Iu Koto wo kikinasai! Episode 1 score: 8.5/10

    • January 11, 2012 at 7:19 pmZhinvu

      Really thanks for the head up that this is incest free. I also want to view this as a family themed anime that’s gonna show how beautiful family is. Well of course having cuties like Raika around is a bonus too.

      • January 11, 2012 at 10:44 pmSerapita

        And that will be what you will get from this anime. It is a story-driven anime about family with just a teeny little bit of fan service here and there.

  • January 11, 2012 at 4:44 pmWhee

    great first ep :)

  • January 11, 2012 at 6:09 pmAnimesetsuna

    This episode…

    Funny, Funny, Funny. Ah…. I can’t believe this anime is so funny. I can’t stop laughing watching this episode. Good recommend to watch this anime.

  • January 11, 2012 at 7:11 pmZhinvu

    “Honestly, I was drawn to this show the moment I saw the words ‘family-oriented’ due to the fact that this genre tends to have a lot of genuinely heart touching moments.”

    I like how you think there Takaii. This is why I also place Clannad After Story in very high regards for its focus on family Show Spoiler ▼

    . And yes Hina is innocently cute and adorable. You’re not the only one who went d’awwwwww. Oda Raika also looks like a character that’s gonna be remembered years to come from that first impression. I don’t know why but Raika reminded me loosely of Shijou Takane, if Takane’s mysteriousness went up a notch.

    • January 12, 2012 at 7:21 amTakaii

      I’m glad you agree with me (:
      And yes, that scene in Lucky Star was amazing wasn’t it?

      • January 14, 2012 at 3:38 pmZhinvu

        It was. The impact was stronger too as I didn’t expect it from Lucky Star.

  • January 11, 2012 at 7:12 pmGambler

  • January 11, 2012 at 11:26 pmtess

    Okay, this is funny and adorable at points but doesn’t anyone else think it’s creepy that they turn that middle niece into a sexual object?? she is way too young….

  • January 12, 2012 at 12:29 amdivinelight

    I see another Haruhi / Yuri, the character alone makes my day.

  • January 12, 2012 at 12:42 amShoronpo


  • January 12, 2012 at 4:53 amSei

    Since only Hina is related to the main character, and she’s obviously too young (for something that gets an anime, at least) isn’t it obvious there won’t be incest?

    • January 12, 2012 at 7:23 amTakaii

      The term incest is used fairly loosely these days, with inter-family relationships riding a really thin line.

      Luckily, from what the LN readers have been saying, Papakiki doesn’t really enter that realm (:

  • January 12, 2012 at 8:19 amRaidou

    milf spotted! too bad she’ll most likely disappear for the rest of the series…

  • January 12, 2012 at 9:25 amKanade

    Hmm, it started off differently from the LN though I like it.

    The question is, will the show follow the LN and stick with heartwarming family-oriented drama or will it ruin it by going off the track and focusing on ecchi/moe stuff?

    Let’s hope the show won’t turn out to be a latter.

  • January 12, 2012 at 4:26 pmBROOKLYN otaku

    HA! dude, incest is stopping NO ONE from watching these show’s LOLOLOLOLO! HAHAHAHAAH!! funny!!

    • January 12, 2012 at 4:28 pmThe Moondoggie

      Like we have been saying: there is no incest.

      • January 13, 2012 at 12:18 pmchaos


        This show has plenty of panty shots, boobs rubbing, and seeing lolicon almost naked. Don’t say there is no hint of incest. Yeah, I am sure a family show display all that. How come I never saw any pant shots or close-up of boobs rubbing on the disney channel?!

        Lies, all lies… O_o

      • January 13, 2012 at 1:56 pmThe Moondoggie

        Then it’s pedophilia and not incest LOLZ. If the elder sister gets to legal age then it’s OK. It can’t be incest because they’re not blood related.

      • January 14, 2012 at 9:55 amgecd

        seeing lolicon almost naked
        I doubt you even know what incest is

      • January 20, 2012 at 12:09 amZz

        Your stupidity amazes me. The closest thing to lolicon you’d see in this show would be the youngest girl, but given how young she is supposed to be I doubt there’ll be any fanservice involving her (thanks god).

      • January 20, 2012 at 12:43 amThe Moondoggie

        @Zz: Well… At least chaos is just a lolicon and not a complete predator. And I don’t think he likes inse- Oh wait…

    • January 13, 2012 at 8:06 pmhaseo0408

      Legally speaking is statutory rape not pedophilia.

  • January 12, 2012 at 7:56 pmloli_pop

    just looking at hina makes me wanna have my own kid sooner cus she’s so cute

  • January 13, 2012 at 2:31 amAnimesetsuna

    About Yuuta, nothing to describe because he is a main character of the story.

    About Sora, she does look like Suzumiya Haruhi based on the design, and her VA is really alike of Haruhi VA. Does Sora in love with Yuuta.

    About Miu, she does look like Maho Misawa from RKB. I have nothing to describe about her.

    About Hina, she is so cute especially her voice. Some people feel like wanna adopt Hina.

    About Raika, I do feel weird about her. She is a weirdo to me. But Kouichi mentioned that she was a weirdo and no boys get near her.

    About Kouichi, to me, he is really a playboy. lol

    About Sako, he is really masochist. lol
    Yuuta, don’t you forget, they called you uncle and it’s impossible for them to call you brother, Oi-tan.

  • January 13, 2012 at 4:33 amUngas123

    [spoiler]if you saw miu’s POV on yuuta!

    yuuta’s a bishounen in ‘miu-sama is right’ lol[/spoiler]

  • January 13, 2012 at 10:05 amKaris

    I highly doubt that Yuka Nakajima(Aka; D.L. Action) will ever make doujins out of this series, since she is working on this as well.

  • January 13, 2012 at 12:21 pmchaos


    Meeeee…..owwwww! Which pet store sell her? I will give you a blank check, just write any number you like so I can bring her home today…

  • January 13, 2012 at 1:50 pmSuppa Tenko

    I like this show, but here are a few things to point out.

    Hina seems a tad older than being 3, more like 5 years old based on body size.
    Also in comparison to her sisters, her size changes going from thigh height to above waist height.

    • January 20, 2012 at 12:52 amChuam

      Yeah, they all seem older than what they really are. To me Hina looks 5, Miu looks 13-14 (I can’t believe she’s 10) and Sora looks 15-16.

  • January 13, 2012 at 3:28 pmlotus

    Man, at least shut the dang door rather than stare at her as she’s frozen in bra and panties.
    Just sayin’.. lol

  • January 13, 2012 at 4:16 pmThe_Magus_Killer

    When I listen to the anime’s OP sung by Eri Kitamura, it feels like I’m listening to Miki Sayaka from Madoka Magica. Haha.

  • January 13, 2012 at 7:00 pmhaseo0408

    Family is the most important thing in the universe, if you don´t have a family you have nothing at love. I´m already loving this show because it centers in a subject that modern society has abandon quiet a lot. I really like the art of the show and the different personalities of the trio, Sora strikes me as the tsundere girl in love with Yuuta, Miu has little devil written all over her and finally Hina is just one little angel; Yuuta got an adorable familly but being a single parent still in college, but that´s going to be a wild and fun ride.

    Right, she’s called ‘Hina’. All this time I’ve been calling her ‘Loli Hibiki’.

    A question that’s been on my mind, the answer to which is likely to have already been inferred by those perceptive watchers: How old are these girls?

    Seriously, how old are they? Hina is 3 (and is adorable). But Sora? I mean, she has boobs and is shown at school with a gaggle of gawking girls. Miu looks a bit younger…

    Middle school? High school? Couldn’t be elementary school…could it?
