A 5 yr old boy who can never think of anything the way it should be though, who messes up things with out knowing, who always is planning something incredibly naughty: Oh come on, unless you have to deal with these in real life, how can you not love Shinchan? A cute cuddly little boy with a head like potato with a brain of blunder in it. Shinchan is the boy we always want to be if we get another shot in our childhood. It might be a disaster for the household but its fun for him right? And the ...more

Lucu, tapi kadang terlalu kasar. Terutama kalo dikaitkan dengan pengasuhan anak, kasar dan galaknya...

So, I picked up this manga because I adore the tv series and I was not disappointed. It's exactly as strange as the show, and Shin is just as ridiculous.

I was worried about the M rating and potty humor, but this manga is actually pretty charming.

Rude, crude and somewhat funny.

So tell the truth. You love Shinchan, right? I mean, what's not to love? He's a five-year-old obsessed with, well, pretty much exactly the same thing that obsesses most guys whose ages end in the number five (15, 25, 35, you get the point): what happens under people's clothes.

OK, maybe I should back up for a second. For anyone who hasn't turned on Cartoon Network lately, Crayon Shinchan (or Crayon Shin-chan, or simply Shin-Chan) is an anime series based on the manga of the same name by Yoshito U

An insufferable 5 year old brat who acts in inappropriate ways. He has an NC-17 vocabulary and a scary interest in sex for a 5 year old. He's always making rude comments to women, wiggling his ding-dong around, obsessing over bodily functions, and generally embarrassing his mother. His parents have no control over him and he's constantly wandering around on his own. Then they wonder where he learned such nasty behavior from. His mother is always hitting him. He's an inappropriate 5 year old with ...more

These books are amazing, I can't think of a single person I wouldn't recommend these too. They are simply hilarious. I think the extensive use of wordplay is what I like so much about them (I'm a huge fan of wordplay in general, I just love it), and surprisingly the translators did an amazing job in keeping the wordplay intact for the english version.
May 29, 2015 Jason rated it liked it
Pretty funny! I would've preferred the original translation instead of the added in American pop culture references. I was also disappointed that a couple of pages were completely blank, edited for content I guess... Not bad, but I think I'll read the translated manga version if I choose to continue the series.

Akhirnya terbit versi Elex...!!! Selama ini tidak pernah tertarik untuk beli yang versi bajakannya...
Btw, seperti halnya seri Natalie, komik ini dilabeli Bimbingan Orangtua. Banyak hal-hal yang don't do this at home soalnya...^^

Highly entertaining, though the "Parental Advisory" sticker might be a bit much. If anything, it's just a tiny bit perverted, but no more so than most other anime that's out there.

Bottom line: if you like the anime on Adult Swim, you'll like this.

Cu Shin, cậu bé bút chì thì hài vô đối rồi, lần nào xem cũng cười bể bụng. Thậm chí mai mốt mình muốn đặt tên ở nhà cho thằng con trai mình là cu Shin luôn cho dễ nuôi, thích một đứa nhỏ quậy quậy, hoạt bát và biến thái giống ông già nó ^^

Funny and amazing story..
It can make you laugh when you read it for the first time and start think ... "Is there any kid just like Shin-chan..??"
Well if you interested in comedy, this is the book which i recommended.
Sometime it has a good advice behind the story.

Anyone with child relatives or have worked with children, can easily relate to the funny situations in this book. :) Can be a great read for some needing to laugh at life.
Place dirty, old-man humor into the body of Billy from Family Circus and you get Crayon Shinchan. Hilarity follows....

Crayon-Shinchan is a laugh-out-loud series with the main character being just as memorable as the devilish Denic the Menace. Highly recommended.

It's about an absurdly naughty 5 year old named Shinchan and how he tortures his family and the people that he meets. This kid is Calvin on steroids! I love it.
