SynopsisHaruka and Sora Kasugano are coming home, to a place filled with memories.
Having lost their parents in a tragic car accident, the twins resolve to return to the countryside and start life anew at their grandfather's house, the haunt a constant reminder of moments from their past. Greeting them are childhood friends Nao Yorihime and Akira Amatsume, and newcomer Kazuha Migiwa. It is a warm welcome, symbolic of the days that should come.
Their peace is merely ephemeral, however, as suppressed emotions, born from vows both newfound and forgotten, start exerting their influence on the twins' new lives. And deep down, a dark secret, only known to them, begins to unshackle.
Based on the visual novel by Sphere, Yosuga no Sora not only explores the power of lost memories and true love when the bonds of many become intertwined, but also raises the questions of morality and social acceptance.

What is right and wrong? Who decides this anyway? When the time comes, will you do things based on what you think is right, or what other people say is?
When I first started watching this, it was some form of a "guilty pleasure" decision, while I thought it was going to be just another under-developed hentai (or half-hentai, as I used to call it). I was very pleasantly surprised.
Believe me, this is NOT a hentai. Yes, the main character does have sex with multiple girls over the course of the series, but these scenes have a meaning. More important thing is how they got to it, the story behind each girl, more than just the act of having sex.
This was made after a visual novel, so it's reasonable that every girl gets a story. Still, in this anime, stories are seperated from each other and only in the last arc, some of the elements from other ones come together. It is obvious that every story, a lot of things change related to each other, but I think it would be more correct to say that the only thing that's really changed is one: the main character.
One of the main reasons why I started watching this anime, was the art. Everything was done fluid and crisp; I equally enjoyed watching the nature and surroundings, and... hmm... body parts. (lol) The people seem real, and the girls are differently built (I really hate it when in anime, all girls look the same). The endings of each episode are made using chibi art, with normal one only used during a ecchi scene. I thought Akira's enourmous chibi head was hilarious, though xD
Sound is great too, both voice actors and music. The background music was done nicely, and it didn't feel weird in any part.
In the beginning, the characters seem chiched and boring: tsundere girl, meganekko slut, awkward class president, childish/mature girl convo... but at the end almost every character has depth.
During the different timelines, as Haruka's personality changes for a little, girls' personalities change a little too. Maybe out of jealousy, the non-main girls become much less likeable than they are in their own arc, even though it is made that the personalities are believable: they didn't change the essence, only circumstances.
Haruka is a main character out of the cliche from the very beginning. Even though he isn't one of the typical male harem leads, he seems a little too perfect; nice and charming, so much that all the girls love him. Though, he is a "Prince Charming" only on the surface; when the time comes for it, he becomes undecisive and weak. The thing changing over the acrs isn't only the girl he likes, it's his personality as well. Even though, in the end, he always stays the same.
Sora is a troubled girl, so much that you can't actually hate her, even if you try. She is clingy, moody, dishonest and insecure, maybe because of the time spent at a hospital that made her delicate like a doll. But, unlike Haru, she knows exactly what she wants and doesn't care what others'll think about it. And it is, being with Haru.
Aside from the main arc's, the other timelines' heroines were likeable too: at the start, Nao seems annoying for some reason, but every time there is a need, whichever timeline, she is there to help like an older sister of some sort. Akira reminds me of those theather masks that only have smile on them: regardless the situation, she will mask everything with a smile. Kazuha tries and tries to be like a strict older sister, despite her real gentle personality.
The order of arcs was the backwards one of my enjoyment as well. I liked the Kazuha one the least, Akira a little more, and so. Motoka chibis in the ending were hilarious, too.
If insecure, try to make the best decision possible. At the end, at least one person must be hurt, and that is the natural course of things. When loving someone, you shouldn't care what other people think or say. That's what I think, at least!
I enjoyed this "half-hentai" a lot more than I previously thought. :) read more
First of all, lets make things clear. THERE ARE SEX SCENES WITHIN THIS SERIES!! and this component usually makes people want to simply watch this series as a hentai. If you are planning on doing so, you will be trading a GREAT anime with a HORRIBLE hentai because those scenes are short and not very exciting. Instead, the sex scenes create an unique mood for the story development.
Story 9/10 Yosuga no sora was originally a PC visual novel, this means that the story cannot possibly lack content. The story is very unique, instead of having a million girls liking the main character at the same time, the story focuses on one heroine for a few episodes then goes back to a "save point" and starts a new story with the next one.
I have to split the art part into two.
General art (how the characters look) 8/10
Mood art (what makes the current situation or story more interesting)10/10 The art of this anime is capable of completely expressing the character's feelings. The artist is not simply making the characters blush and changing the eyes and eyebrows to express a character's emotions. Instead, the artist uses the body language of the characters. ( the way a character is standing, sitting, lying down, getting f**ked)
Sound 9/10 The voice acting for most characters is very satisfying.
The background music and sounds were generally good. ( with a few scenes that have great background music and sounds) The opening is one of my favorite anime openings. The op song beautifully expresses the general feeling of this anime.
Character 10/10 In general (because I might flood the review with my own opinions and lower the quality since i have too much to say）The character portrayal is great, partially thanks to the art; each character has a very unique and attractive personality which also makes the individuality of the characters extremely strong.
Enjoyment 9/10 The only thing holding me back from giving this series a 10/10 for enjoyment is the intense conflicts made one episode seem very long and made me want to take a break. Which is also the reason this anime is enjoyable.
I would suggest this series to everyone, especially people who likes interesting conflicts and romance.
PS: The visual novel is still much better so why not give the VN a chance while you're at it. Both the art and music are amazing and the stories are more developed in the VN :D
Normally I don't review series, even if I really love them, but one very negative review on this series that I bumped into prompted me to want to give it as much credit as possible.
I am a 18 year old girl. I love anime, but I'm not anti-social or any other stereotype that really fits otaku. I have plenty of friends who think anime in general is weird. And I, possibly the most 'normal' out of all my otaku friends, LOVED this anime.
The art is amazing. especially when contrasted with the characters. I adored how they made the lead male a bishi without having his character be a total soft-hearted pussy, like they do in almost every harem anime I've ever seen!
That being said, normally I don't even go for harem anime, but this one was very... sincere? I think that's a good way to put it. It really made the best of each arch, so that I felt good and satisfied when the happy ending was reached for each pairing. Even the twincest arch, which I'd never have pinned myself as being a particular fan of.
On top of all this, the voice acting is very high quality. A lot of the time, what I find in more obscure anime, especially ones like this, is that they supplement their budget by having crappy voice actors. Not Yosuga no Sora. The voice acting was actually very noticeably better than even some mainstream stuff out there.
Overall, I'd say the rating should depend on what you're looking for. When I try to rate anime, I do it based on how someone looking for that genre would rate it. Like, I wouldn't grade Code Geass by the same criteria I would grade Princess Princess. So, that being taken into account, this is an awesome series for those who can go into it with an open mind, and look at the good qualities. The soft-core porn is just a bonus XP
I just want to start off by saying that "YES, this anime does contain mild sex scenes and incestuous themes", but if you're comfortable enough with your own insecurities and own ideals, you should still find this to be an enjoyable anime. After all, this is not the first nor the last anime that will contain such said themes. As a person with a little sister, I do get uncomfortable with themes like incest because I love my sister, but I'm not physically attracted to her at all. Anyway, now that I've got THAT out of the way, I'll keep this review short and simple.
The main story is told through the perspective of Haruka Kasugano, a male high school student whose parents have deceased. Now all alone with his twin sister, he deals with a series of different relationships with different girls. Honestly, not the most insanely interesting story, but pretty good and engaging. The story is told at a rather fast pace for a romance/drama and I think that really helps keep the audience engaged. The ending was rather satisfying, but it was also rather predictable and almost borderline boring. I kind of wanted more drama towards the end and not the bittersweet ending the anime presented itself with.
Not really much to say here. The art was extremely beautiful. Each character had unique facial features and no one character looked alike for the most part. However, there wasn't anything special enough for me to say this was "Jaw-dropping" or anything like that. Pretty nice art nonetheless.
Pretty nice music throughout the whole anime. Nothing totally special, but good enough for me to notice. Opening and closing songs were ok and maybe worth downloading. Decent music for Romance/Drama though. Definitely helped hype up emotion in many of the scenes throughout the entire series. As far as voice acting goes, pretty good, but keep in mind I don't speak Japanese so I can't say it's perfect for sure. There were never any awkward out of sync problems or glitches either.
Maybe It's just me, but judging characters in harem anime is typically hard because you can't focus on one character for too long or be completely satisfied with the amount of screen time your favorite character gets. However, this anime does a good job of splitting up screen time and character development evenly. Unfortunately, that also means it's hard to get attached to a single character. I also found some characters annoying and a bit extraneous. For example, the class rep and other male lead felt like they didn't need to be there. The male protagonist was also a bit boring and stereotypical. On the other hand, his twin sister was a pretty interesting character, but just didn't have enough screen time to develop properly. Decent characters in general.
This is all based on my own personal taste so don't hate me if I enjoyed this anime more or less than you. I don't think it's a bad anime, but it is sort of boring at times. I've been on a Romance/Drama/Comedy anime roll lately so I might be judging this anime harshly. I did enjoy it overall, but it's definitely not anime I'd go crazy over. Is it worth watching? Yeah, sure. It's pretty short and has a pretty fast pace so it's pretty easy to get into it. I think I would've enjoyed it more if the some characters weren't so bland and stereotypical.
Good, but not great. Worth investing time into, but not anything to rush for. I would put this anime just a little above average. I had a decent time watching and hope to find more like it. read more
While Amagami SS does not have an incestuous relationship as a central plot point, both shows are presented in an omnibus format that allows the viewer to experience all of the available 'good-end' paths for each girl.
Both have an arc for every girl. It's not like Clannad or Kanon, oh no, but in these shows they go back in time and the main character picks out a different girl.
Yosuga's got graphic nudity and sex scenes, while Amagami's more... your average harem anime.
The concept is the same, we get to see all of the possible ending with the different girls. But... with more "hentai" ;p
Both feature a variety of girls getting together with the protagonist. After a story arc is finished, the story resets and things take a different route, leading to a romance with a different girl.
While a story arc in Amagami SS is four episodes long, the ones in Yosuga no Sora aren't as linear, some consisting of barely two eps while others take longer.
Amagami SS is a casual romance anime. Yosuga no Sora features nudity and sex scenes.
Amagami SS takes place during the winter. Yosuga no Sora takes place during the summer.
Both Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora are based off a visual novel (Thank you Akitso for correcting me), and they both may look like a Harem anime, but they concentrate on ONE heroine. Please correct the following statement if I'm wrong.
Amagami SS seem to trigger different heroine route from the beginning of the game while Yosuga no Sora seem to contain Heroines which that can be triggered in the middle of the game. Therefore, Amagami SS will air 4 episodes for each heroine while Yosuga no Sora might air shorter epsiodes for different heroines.
If you liked the idea of watching different heroine as if you are playing a game, I suggest that you watch Amagami SS as well.
-Both animes's setting/story goes by an omnibus format, and have small arcs for each heroine that can either or not be diverging from the central plot of the story (with the setting intact)
Amagami SS - is Light Romance
Yosuga no Sora - is extreme romance xD
But the main character experiences with different girls in different timespace in different situation
Both anime shows use an Omibus format, or a format that allows you to see the protagonist pair up with different people. However, Yosuga has so much nudity and sexual content that it borderlines as a hentai. Amagami SS is more tame than Yosuga as sex is merely implied.
Both shows story line is taken from dating game, and both shows have short storys of the main character chosing difrent girl witch lead to difrent ending.
from what i have read, and what i have watched.. i know its based off euroge
aka a dating game. so basically there is one main guy who gets to try and see how things would be with each different girl, thus like a dating game.
Both extremely repetitive with different scenerios of main guy with the girls around him.
Yosuga no Sora is just a more (unnecessarily) graphic/mature version
Both anime acts like a visual novel where the storyline is separated by different arcs... and girls... and shows how will one guy end up if he goes out with a certain girl.
Both are romantic animes. Where each girl gets episodes with the main guy portaginist then time rewinds and a new girl gets episodes with with guy
Even though the there isn't anything incestual about Amagami SS or in anyway means provocative, it's very similar to Yosuga no Sora in a more softer/cuter sense. Each girl gets to have her own time and her own episodes with the main character. Both are very good series.
Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora are romance anime that are separated into small arcs that focus on an individual girl and her growing relationship with the main male protagonist. This is a unique trick that one does not see too often in game adaptions. Both series feature good and well developed characters mixed with amazing animation. Yosuga no Sora is certainly more ecchi based and is meant for mature audiences, while Amagami SS is much more lighthearted and will leave you with a wonderful warm feeling in the end. If you liked watching one of them you wont regret trying out the other.
Well, it's obvious . Do I really need to tell something ?
Every girl has her own arc.
Yosuga is more .. well .. there is twins .. and also umm.. it's +18.
Amagami SS and Yosuga no Sora are presented in omnibus harem format, with each girl having their own "good end" in her arc, therefore allowing male lead to "end up with" all main heroines without girls turning into yandere and fight with each other. In amagami, each girl takes up exactly 4 episodes, and the story takes place in the same time. In Yosuga no Sora, each arc takes up either 2 or 3 episodes, and the events occur in a chronological, but alternative world, order. BEWARE that there is incest in yosuga. Both series are done in a fashion that unveil the charms of the heroines, and leave you satisfied with the pairings.
If you've seen one, you should have give the other a look.
I feel like the relationships, situations and behaviour in Yosuga no Sora could actually happen. In Amagami SS, that realism feel has been removed. But don't get me wrong. I enjoyed Amagami SS much more than Yosuga no Sora.
You should know that Yosuga no Sora has sex scenes but I wouldn't call them graphic and they're very short. In my opinion, it usually happens as a confirmation of their relationship and feelings for each other, which is why I approve of them.
Best girl always wins in the omnibus format as they cycle through each girl's arc and ending.
Both series follow the same format (omnibus format, multiple arcs)
Also, both involve romance. It's just that Yosuga no Sora features an incestuous relationship.
If you liked the the structure of the arcs in Amagami then you would be able to appreciate it in Yosuga no Sora. However, in my opinion, it isn't done as well as Amagami.
Both use the omnibus format in adaptation. There are no sex scenes or incestuous themes in Amagami though.
Both have brother & sister intimate relationships.
both are about brother and sister lust. And sex inside, of course
Both deal with the brother-sister incest relationship and are borderline hentai.
Aki-Sora and Yosuga no Sora are both somewhat borderline hentai anime that share the same main theme - a forbidden love between siblings. They feature adolescent school kids who have strong sexual desires that they attempt to deny but end up giving into. Both series offer animation that is a feast for the eyes. The only downside is that Aki-Sora is kinda short while Yosuga no Sora has a slightly better developed plot since it's longer. If you liked watching one of them you shouldn't hesitate to try out the other.
both talk about the love of brothers and the implications of it around them
Both are borderline hentai anime about a little boy and his sexual relationships to include incest.
Sexual Scenes. Harem Ecchi.
Both shows are about incestuous relationships
Both are borderline-H with brother and sister relationship.
Borderline hentai anime with extremely similar plotline containing incest relationship.
Yosuga no Sora has pretty much same theme, except the arcs in Yosuga no Sora.
both of them includes sister-love. but yosuga no sora is a bit more...explicit.
Both animes involves sisters with a brotherly complex with the male character.
Both were classified as a harem genre.
Both female characters (usually the sister) exhibits jealously when they see the male character (the brother) being with another girl.
Both exhibits torrid kissing scenes.
Though both were classified as ecchi, both anime has the potential to be more of a hentai than ecchi.
One anime is a comedy, while the other is drama.
The male character in "Yosuga no Sora" is actually related to the female cahracter, while the other one in "Kiss X Sis" the male character is not related to his sisters.
In "Yosuga no Sora" the male character was able to bang other female characters (though, not fully shown), while in "Kiss X Sis" the male character nearly bangs one of his sister.
While both male character finds themselves seduce by the female characters, one was all to willing to go along with it, while the other was able thwart off (most of the time) his sisters advances.
If you are a fan of wet kisses and are watching/watched kissxsis/yousuga no sora , you must watch the other one. They both have lots of kisses. Although, if you a little more romantic i recommend yosuga no sora having an emotioning story with it, kissxsis being more like ecchi/comedy
ecchi titles that deal with incest.
True ethical armageddon in both series. Brother complex.
They both have bro to sis love but in kissxsis its more sis to bro but very funny.
Sibling love , Even more amazing love story - harem .
Both anime have heavy incest and ecchi undertones. The main character in each seems to grab the attention of any and all females he meets and then proceeds to get placed in usually explicit situations with each of them. Neither will anime will appease any girls who watch it.
Do you like harem.
Do you like Softcore porn hi jinx.
Well if you do then this show is for you.
Both are ecchi to high levels and handle the idea of an incestious relationship between siblings.
Both are on the borderline of being a hentai. You do not see anything but you know what is going on.
Brother-Sister incest. Ecchi. Though it seems that Yosuga no Sora will have a more intriguing storyline
incest relationship, and a harem in both. Yosuga no Sora has a much better story line than Kiss x Sis and also is rated R+ because there is nudity in majority of the episodes. If Kiss x Sis was good for you then Yosuga no Sora is even better.
Good anime for masterpiece fap
Same aspect here, a sister liking her brother, IMO yosuga no sora had a better story and just wasn't also ecchi every time, this anime is very similar.
Both are borderline hentai anime focusing on raunchy incest scenes and ecchi through the eyes of a boy and his harem.
Both are ecchi and in both anime is about love between brother and sister/s (siblings)
Genre for both anime: Ecchi, Romance, Harem... :D
Main character moving back to a town he lived in as a child. Dark depressing mood in both anime.
Main character returns to the town he lived in as a child and finds people he knew from back then. Both are dark and gloomy anime and have a feeling of mystery about them.
Both have dark setting, boy returning back to town, meeting childhood friends and twincest.
Returning to his hometown. Childhood friends.
Drama, better than average plot
YnS main plot and M;Y side/subplot are similar in that they deal with incest. Both anime tell the story/arc near the end of their season. Where YnS deals with both MC, M;Y is focused on the "supporting IMO" BroSis. Both anime leave an open ending where both respective siblings move out of the country after a taboo/scandal respectively was found out by the locals, YnS was voluntarily while M;Y was forced.
Both involve love between a twin brother and sister.
It's similar to the last part of Yosuga no Sora, It has no erotic scenes, but still it's a catching love story.
both involve incest but BokuImo is a shoujo manga adaptation(in later chapters of the manga-not in the OVA-it is revealed they are not actually siblings) and Yosuga no Sora is a bishoujo eroge adaptations(they are actual brother and sister)...also Yosuga no Sora has fanservice while BokuImo,being a shoujo,has almost none
Because there is a "forbidden" relationship - sister x brother.
Both story is about incest.
-Dramatic love "twincest"
