Synopsis

After six years of living separately, brother and sister Akiko and Akito Himenokouji are finally reunited. The two used to be quite close, until their parents died and they were sent to live with separate foster families. Now the two can live together and go to the same school as brother and extremely loving sister!

It doesn’t take long before it becomes abundantly clear that Akiko has a huge brother complex. Unfortunately for Akiko, her brother only sees her as a little sister he must protect. But that won’t stop her from trying to win her brother’s affections!

Things are only complicated when more girls move in with the siblings, making Akiko even more determined than ever to keep her brother’s eyes only on her. That’s tough to do with other girls flaunting their swimsuit-clad bodies at Akito, fighting over who gets to take care of him, and otherwise meddling in Akiko's plans for her brother. This is going to be one fun household…!

"At the end of the day, at the end of the day when all was for naught, I can at least take pleasure in knowing that my little sister is waiting at home with open arms and a warm bosom." — Sophocles

Since the Armory Show of 1913, the state of Western Civilization has been one of decline. Though the rise of Modernist Art might not seem terribly significant to the average uneducated reader, the paradigm shift from Representational Art to Abstract Art planted the Seeds of Degeneracy that sprouted into the base and rotten Popular "Culture" that we are all so familiar with today.

Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne! is one of those Ecchi-anime which happen to pop up once in a while and though there may be a ton of crappy ones, some of them at least have a decent story, or a good sense of humor, making up for the usual flaws Ecchi-anime often have.

But nope, we are out of luck with this one, meaning that this anime does not have a decent story and while we´re at it, it also lacks of interesting characters, character development and all the other stuff that make up a decent anime.

To be fair, it´s an Ecchi, read more

Tsundere Right? Follow me. I don't like you one bit. Not at all
Reply: I don't see you as a love interest one bit. Not at all.
That wasn't Tsundere!


Every anime has its own priorities, or goals. If every anime was aiming for the same thing then there would be little variety. Shounen anime like one piece or naruto are meant to make the watchers enjoy awesome fights and power ups through a long adventure and Key productions such as Clannad and Angel beats are meant to be a romance story that could make a grown man cry.

OniAi(this anime) does not aim for a romance or action. read more

Guilty pleasures...things you know are bad but like them regardless. This show would have to be one of my biggest guilty pleasures of 2012. So generic, so predictable, yet funny and entertaining at the same time.

Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne, or OniAi, is yet another fan service heavy romance anime. An incestuous tale about about a high-school girl who, after six long years, finally gets to see her beloved brother. After some random unexplained developments, the story develops into a harem in just the first episode.

From there, the plot becomes extremely predictable to the point of just being plain sad. read more
