This title is great for you if you love adorable protagonists and appreciate the theme of found family. However, it is the perfect watch for you if you loved watching BarakamonGakuen Babysitters, and Hinamatsuri, as all of these shows are quite similar to this new release.

If this series is one you definitely want to watch, then you’ve come to the right place because we tell you all about Kotaro Lives Alone here.

Kotaro Lives Alone synopsis

Kotaro Lives Alone follows the life of a polite young boy named Kotaro who has no one to rely on or anyone to call a friend. Fortunately, his lonesomeness doesn’t go unnoticed by his neighbor, Shin Karino, who is also dealing with his fair share of life struggles. The two come together to form an extremely wholesome friendship and teach one another many things about joy, family, and belonging.

See all this and more play out in the official trailer for the anime below.

With a premise this great, you can certainly expect an equally great voice cast. The cast of Kotaro Lives Alone features Edens Zero‘s Rie Kugimiya who voices Kotaro Sato, Toshiki Masuda voices Shin Karino, Saori Hayami is Mitsuki Akitomo, and Great Pretender‘s Junichi Suwabe will voice the role of Isamu Tamaru.

In knowing all this, we hope that you’re more than ready to tune in! If so, head on over to Netflix to watch all 10 episodes of Kotaro Lives Alone and stay tuned for season 2 updates when (or if) they are officially announced.
