Ore no Imouto ga konnani kawaii wake ga nai 01

Ore no Imouto ga konnani kawaii wake ga nai

Um, I don’t think part of the job description of an older brother includes getting a night visit from my little sister who rudely awakens me with a slap and a story about life counselling.

Especially when the topic is about eroge…

I mean, holy fucking shit, I would be fucking shocked if I discovered my younger sister has a mountain of eroge PC games (note how most of them are the same game, multiple copies 1)

Profound words, younger sister. Unfortunately I still don’t see the point.

Before this, I used to think my younger sister is an alien. Now, I am convinced she is one.

Hey! That’s like blaming newspapers for the increase in violent crime!

Oh finally, something true and comprehensible to me. Don’t worry, sis, I already knew that when you were born.

Please try to imagine reading the above from Kyousuke’s point of view. Because I can really empathize with him. In fact, it’s a bit uncanny how much Yuuichi Nakamura’s deadpan portrayal of Kyousuke is almost exactly the same thoughts and feelings I would had, had my younger sister decided to pop that surprise for me too.

I’m quite loving the show so far. In fact, I think this is probably the most level-headed version of the story so far. I think the manga overplayed the fanservice card a bit too much and I didn’t read the novel past chapter one, so the anime is probably going to be the definitive version of the story for me if it keeps this up. Especially with Yuuichi Nakamura’s performance. And hopefully, it won’t focus >too< much on the fanservice elements, especially between the siblings. Otherwise, I think I am going to greatly enjoy this adventure of a poor brother dragged along with his otaku younger sister’s adventures.

1: Did the producers of OreImo sign a cross promotion contract with those eroge producers? Hell they’re even referenced in the credits!

    Holy sh*t, she played Cross Days. Wasn’t that the one where the trap was prettier than the actual woman?

    Cross Days doesn’t have an imouto-type chara IIRC. She’s more than a imouto-fetish otaku.

    What an unusual shade of aquamarine (or is it just teal or aqua) for the eyes. I’m surprised she hasn’t read the system requirements yet, like any otaku would m

    Cross Days had that NTR route, if I recall.

    @Haesslich: Well, that’s pretty much how pretty Japanese girls in the anime dimension look like! Never mind she bears no resemblance whatsoever with the rest of Kyousuke’s “normal” family.

    @Nestor: Yes, it’s the one with the trap route

    @bluemist: Oh yeah, I guess that makes sense. After all, she uses AkibaBlog as her buying guide and shit.

    So the novels focus on the comedy, the manga works with the fanservice.

    Where does that leave the anime at? It feels like a drama CD, all everyone did in this episode is walk around and talk. They are just telling the story.

    Maybe I enjoyed the manga too much… It’s a little too suggestive, but it was a lot more fun than this.

    Call me stupid, call me ignorant, call me anything you like…

    …but how the heck can she have a closet in her room although there doesn’t seem to be any additional space between the inside of her room and the outside? Did I miss something or is this some kind of twisted dimension thing she achieved using her ero power?

  8. Kurogane Shiroikaze Said,

    It’s possible, because her room is at the corner of the house/corridor.

    Less fanservice than in the manga? I’d say there was more.
    The scene at the beginning for example.

    Noo… Even Akane-iro?! The bad memories…

    Anyways, not a bad start for Aya-nyan and Yuuichi!

    I saw a copy of School Days in that pile at one point. And I swear she said “Tengen Toppa” at one point, a Gurren Lagann reference there maybe?

    speaking of NTR, one must really wonder where she gets the money to afford all that stuff…

    @hshng

    Kyousuke asked that in the episode. She’s a model in her spare time.

    I’m looking forward to seeing how they portray kuroneko.

    She’s following the 3X rule of the collector. Good girl.

    Atashi: she is a true budding otaku. With the most unique eyes I’ve seen lately. Ones that one could fall into…

    @Wittyreviewer: Yeah, I saw that too, Tengen Toppa *something with imouto in it*

    Wonder I’ve she played Fate Stay Night too? I bet she’d be pissed off by the lack of Ilya route :D

    Over one million M anime fans and otaku wanted to sign up for this deal.

    Kirino’s excitement over her collection was so d’awww.

    I have 2 actual imouto, and one is otaku, plays j-rpgs though not galges, and cetainly is not into incest…
    we’re watching the series together 4 lulz
    btw, her best otaku moment: lending Agent Aika to our dad who aske d for something spicy for midnight watching

    Look like this anime will clean from fanservice through the end. For some one need fanservice incest, then probably Yosuga no Sora will be much suited.
    I watch both, ahahaha.wav

    Ep 2 leak incident seems lol and stupid at the same time.
