OniiZen 01

Oniichan no Koto Nanka Zenzen Suki Janain Dakara ne!!

I think I enjoyed OniiZen way a lot more than I should have. Unlike OreImo’s supposedly “serious” take on the matter, OniiZen is over-the-top to the point of parody and it actually works.

Also well, Kitamura Eri is doing a bloody fine job as Nao as well. She’s hilarious as her and her fast-talking skills are really key in to making the inner monologues of Nao (which get VERY common) don’t drag out too long to lose the point of comedy. I love how KitaEri probably used up most of her voice range as Nao in one single episode, from super high-pitch loli voice in the beginning, the spitfire sarcasm-laden voice throughout and the serious, deadpan voice at the oniichan diary at the end.

I really didn’t expect to like OniiZen, but the first episode and KitaEri’s performance have proven otherwise. Guess I will be following it for now. Hopefully, it’ll turn out better than expected, but I’m not hoping for much for this show.

    Do you know if there will be an uncensored broadcast (like on at-x)?

    After the sccsav session, I thought it was terrible. Gave it another shot though and convinced myself that Toshiyuki’s REALLY in this production (cause I couldn’t believe it, at first).

    and yeah, it’s not that bad. but the animation still sucked.

    T-That line under their eyes. D:

    Everyone in the show looks tired.

    I think that AT-X would not consider broadcasting OniiZen uncensored…

    Anyway, time to wait for Twin Tail Osanajimi-chan next week!

    lol didn’t expect this to be animated, Im reading the manga and these days the chapters are published very irregularly so I really didn’t expect them to animate this but hey, the same happend wie Oreimo and the manga really contained some interesting chapters so this is gonna be a really nice and funny anime – don’t expect any deep story behind it :b

    Ohh, I read the manga before. Remind me the good day, such hentai sister is laughable! I shouldn’t miss it!

    No idea.

    @Di Gi Kazune: There won’t be any Kuroneko’s from this show!

    Anyways, complaints about the art style should go straight to the manga-ka, the anime is pretty much adapting this style for better or worse.

    I hope for a change in kicking…
    maybe I’ll try watching episode 1 by myself.

    dear god the characters would snap in half if someone so much as sneezed on them let alone procreated.

    also Sora and Haruka would be proud of such a relationship

    I actually like Kusano’s style, but he should stick to hentai instead of such cocktease.
