Osomatsu-san Spoilers

Ten years have passed since the events of the original anime. But the story finds that while the sextuplet Matsuno brothers, Osomatsu, Karamatsu, Choromatsu, Ichimatsu, Jyushimatsu, and Todomatsu, have physically grown, they remain as mischievous as they always were. The first episode cheekily breaks the fourth wall, making the brothers aware that they are getting a new series. They worry if they will be able to fit in the modern time. They briefly consider the prospect of their show being a colorful bishōnen idol anime, but eventually discard the idea, deeming it to be too much of a work. The story actually begins after they do nothing at all for a decade.

While all of them look identical, they have distinctive personalities. As opposed to the original series, the humor and theme that ‘Osomatsu-san’ explores are quite mature. It continues to depict effective parodies of some of the popular components of Japanese culture. In the new show, its targets are understandably more modern.
