Synopsis

Kyousuke's smart, cute, but bratty younger sister hates him. While they used to get along when they were very young, over the years they grew more and more distant until finally they stopped talking altogether, doing their best to ignore each others' existences.

One afternoon Kyousuke finds an anime DVD case he doesn't recognize, which hid a very inappropriate ero-game. The owner of this perverted game? Kyousuke's seemingly perfect little sister!

Turns out that while she might be a perfect student, athlete, and even a professional model, she's actually also a hardcore otaku with an obsession with little sisters, and she wants him to help her hide her double life from their strict family and her non-geeky friends. What else are siblings for, after all?

Background

Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai also has a drama CD, a radio show and video games based on the franchise.

People can look at this anime anyway they want, but it'll forever be (for me) a sweet story of how an older brother came to love his sister as any older brother should. So far, every episode managed to unfold into how the two get closer to each other as the older brother helps his sister with common teen problems.

The story is different from other brother-sister relationship anime. Told from the brother's point of view, it's light and has no weird physical and romantic interaction between the two. I like how he started from not even talking to his sister to how he realizes read more

Overview:

I continue on my quest to explore new genres of anime and review really odd stuff. "Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai" roughly translates to "I can't believe my little sister is this cute!" I will call this title Oreimo for the rest of this review because honestly the full title is WAY too long. Much like one of my all time favorite spoof movies: Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood.


Our main character is an obnoxious teenage male who is upset that his little sister doesn't bring him breakfast in bed and act like read more

Every season we seem to get that one show that has all the buzz and word of mouth about it from the anime community. This time most of that was centered on this anime, Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai. I will admit that from the first time I saw details of this show pop up I was not to thrilled with its prospects, but the hype over the show was too much to ignore and I decided to give it a go. In the end I am left wonder just what was all the fuss about?

'Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai' (Long titles for the win) is one of those animes I just can't figure out. On the surface it appears to be an anime about a brother and a sister who struggle to realise their feelings for each other. But in reality it is about much more than that. We have a good chunk of the story here focused on anime and the world of otakus as well as the friendships that one can gain simply by going outside and meeting new people.

That said, the plot's main purpose is to of course present us the read more
