Ahahahaha… Akiko, why can’t I hate you despite your obviously creepy cocklust for your own older brother?
I’ve actually read a bit of the LN quite a way back (even before the anime announcement) because of the ridiculousness of the title and actually kinda bet it would be animated by this year. Heh, I wish I had made bet on that now…
Anyways! Wow, this kinda went a lot more better than I expected from the anime, since well… I really didn’t have any to begin with! Even for my standards, the LN was mildly amusing, although the story went to bullshit quickly, the humor and Akiko’s mad lust for her brother should carry it quite well.
I’m really most impressed by Ibuki Kido, Akiko’s seiyuu, who is not only YOUNGER than her character… she also just debuted with this role too! The way she brings Akiko’s character to life with all that quick mood changes and idiosyncratic speech patterns really made me wonder if she truly possesses some godly natural talent. I can see why she got the lead role now, lol. If anything, I’m going to stick with this show just to see her performance… to judge whether it is a one-time fluke or I am truly witnessing the rise of a new star.
Production quality is surprisingly good as well, way better than I expected from the PV’s I glanced through. Gotta especially like the following scene.
Goddamn, that gap in the towel! This guys are real pros at this.
And I really just love how lively they animated Akiko.
Especially those gununu’s. Goddamn it, those were awesome! Man… I’m enjoying this show a HELL lot more than I thought I would.
