Haruma Kawagoe is an only child. A long time ago, at Christmas time, his mother miscarried the child that was to have been his baby sister. That night, young Haruma knelt down and offered up an earnest prayer: "Please make my mother well again, and please give me a little sister." Years have passed, and Haruma has nearly forgotten his prayer. But Santa hasn't.... one Christmas, when Haruma is least expecting it, he gets an unusual present - his sister.
Not really used to doing reviews, but I found this to be a very entertaining anime so I wanted to give it justice. Anyways, let me just get right to the meat of this review.
Story: I have to give this series a solid 8 for its story, it was satisfactory. Originally I thought that it would be hard to make a good story/setting primarily focusing on a platonic relationship between a brother and sister, but I was certainly proven wrong. The bonding between Choco and Kawagoe will take you on an emotional ride that will make you laugh, smile and quite possibly jerk a tear(it did for me). Only thing I can really criticize about the story is there isn't enough back-story on the main characters.
Art: For how much I loved the story, I certainly can't vouch for the animation. Now I'm not saying the animation is terrible in Chokotto Sister, but it definitely could use some improvements. Though usually the fanservice shots tend to have better quality lol.
Sound: To be honest, most people could care less about the sound effects in a drama/comedy. In this genre, as long as the sound effects don't sound totally out of place, then I'm happy, and the sound effects in Chokotto Sister sounded just fine to me. As for the music, I'm pretty sure you will get tired of hearing a certain dancing song after a while but its nothing I would hold against the anime lol. The ambient music sounds just about right and I really liked the OP and ED.
Character:Though some of the characters in Chokotto Sister may come off as generic(tsundere, cute/dumb, etc.), the way they portrait the characters is decent enough. I never found myself asking "well why is that character even in this anime?" which I have definitely asked of other animes.
Enjoyment: I enjoyed Chokotto sister very much even though it does tend to have a little excessive fanservice(it's a partial oppai anime though so what do you expect?). I probably enjoyed it even more since I watched it in the Christmas season.
Overall: Overall this anime is an instant classic Christmas holiday story that will touch your heart despite its flaws. I probably would have given it higher score if it had better characters, after all, it is a character driven show.read more
Chocotto sister is a good anime to watch if you have time to spare. It follows a girl named Choco who is given to a college student named haruma by a female biker santaclaus after many years ago wishing for a sister. Chocotto sister story follows the everyday life choco and haruma. Anytime there is trouble choco refers to a little tiny book for answers which at most times doesnt help. Some of her troubles include discovering what a bra is, taking a jaguar as a pet and this doesn't count as a trouble but the neko-nyan dance. Choco seems to have a lack of knowledge on I guess you can say of a every day norms or what is expected from society. Like she doesn't know what a bra is or that you shouldn't be naked while people are in your home. What makes this a good name is chocos lack of understanding and figuring out things by herself or with the help of others. There's no dragons, magicians or robots but if you got time I say go watch it. It never hurts to try read more
