Sergeant Keroro airs 6pm Monday - Friday

Short Synopsis

In this long-running comedic anime series, a platoon of frog-like alien invaders gets into all sorts of wacky trouble in their quest for world domination.
Be prepared to laugh your hearts out in this wild, wacky and oddball comedy that is Sergeant Keroro, a humorous and light-hearted series following a platoon of frog-like alien invaders who lands on Earth with the mission of taking over the planet.

However, things do not go as planned on Earth as the platoon is separated from its leader, anti-hero, and protagonist Sergeant Keroro, who has been discovered and captured by members of the Hinata household. Sergeant Keroro is under the mercy of the family and is reduced to being the family's domestic helper, stuck with the unenviable task of doing mundane household chores everyday.

Humour ensues as Sergeant Keroro reunites with his platoon mates. The Hinata family is not only amused by Sergeant Keroro and his four other platoon mates, they also find themselves foiling the platoon's odd alien ways and mission to take over the world.

Other quirky and goofy characters, hailing both from Earth and outer space, join in to add plenty of colour and laughter to the series. With a wide variety of references to other anime including the extremely popular Gundam franchise, as well as general pop-culture, this light-hearted, fun and entertaining comedy is sure to delight and amuse.
