Synopsis[edit]

Premise[edit]

Masato Oosuki is a teenager who is usually annoyed by his overly doting mother, Mamako, until both are teleported to a fantasy-themed world inside an online game. Masato tries his hardest to show his prowess inside the game, but constantly finds himself flustered by the fact that his mother possesses much higher stats, thus she can easily defeat all opponents with her twin swords, leaving little room for him to act. On their way, they befriend three girls who join their party. As they take quests inside the game, they later discover that it was originally designed to help strengthen the bonds between parents and their children.[4]

Critical response[edit]

Reviewing the first two episodes of the anime, Steve Jones of Anime News Network gave the series a 3 out of 5 star rating, saying it "emerges as an odd beast to pin down", while also commenting that the show's comedy "[has] definitely been hitting more often than the average isekai", with Jones admitting he had fun watching the episodes.[48] In another review, Jones remarked how he enjoyed the show mostly because of its fan service. He also stated, "Do You Love Your Mom continues to function as a reasonably amusing self-aware isekai romp with plenty of motherly cheesecake to titillate its audience, but in no way do I trust it to say anything meaningful about motherhood without tripping over itself."[49] In a third review, Jones highlighted how the anime addresses real-life issues related to abusive parent-child relationships, as, according to him, "It's good to try and address abusive parenting."[50]

Bipin Adhikari of Comic Book Resources expressed his opinion that the show is "as hysterical as the name suggests".[51] The review anime website Beneath the Tangles wrote, "Do You Love Your Mom and Her Two-Hit Multi-Target Attacks? offers a fun play on the usual light novel shenanigans by saddling the hapless male protagonist with his doting mother. This does offer some amusing comedy. However, the [series] does also offer a nice glimpse at a deeper them of motherhood and managing the bond between a mother and a teenage child who's starting to want some independence."[52]

Allen Moody of THEM Anime Reviews gave the anime a 2 out of 5 star rating, criticizing the series for its absurdly long title and dynamics between the characters.[53]
