SynopsisKyousuke Kousaka, a normal seventeen-year-old high school student, hasn't gotten along with his younger sister, Kirino, in years. For longer than he can remember, Kirino has ignored his comings and goings and looked at him with spurning eyes. It seemed as if the relationship between Kyousuke and his sister, now fourteen, would continue this way forever.
One day, however, Kyousuke finds a DVD case of a magical girl anime entitled Hoshikuzu Witch Merle (Stardust Witch Merle), which had fallen into the entrance way of his house. To Kyousuke's surprise, inside the case is a hidden adult video game titled 'Imouto to Koishiyo!' (Love with Little Sister!). Kyousuke attempts to fish out the culprit who dropped the case by bringing up the topic of magical girl anime at the family dinner table. All that comes out is a strong negative reaction from his parents, especially his anti-otaku policeman father.
That night, Kirino bursts into Kyousuke's room and, in perhaps the first conversation she has initiated with him in years, says they "have things to talk about." Kirino brings Kyousuke to her room and shows him an extensive collection of moe anime and lolicon bishoujo games she has been collecting in secret.

Oreimo is an excellent manga. It has a plot that some people can relate to and has a really intriguing story. The art is simple and easy to understand(No flashy detailed art). If your a girl otaku, then your sure to love this! It is a mixture of slice of life/comedy. This is personally my favourite manga and is probably rated 13+. It has only has 12 volumes which makes it a nice manga to collect(some have mangas can have 50 volumes...). Overall, I give this manga 10/10 and recommend it to all girl otaku.
both shows deal with a romantic relationship with a brother and a tsundere otaku little sivter
the same author and the same art
if you like Oreimo,go and read Ero manga sensei
The main characters of both series (Umaru and Kirino) are perfect in looks, brains, and personality. They are people who everybody admires and idolizes but what other people don't know is that they are both a closet otaku and have been keeping this a secret to everyone. They both have older brothers (Taihei and Kyosuke) who knew their younger sister's secret and protected it from everyone. The difference in the series is the relationship between the siblings. Taihei and Umaru have a close relationship while Kyosuke and Kirino does not.
In both of them the main characters have to deal with a society full of prejudices that looks down upon their otaku hobbies. In both of them there's a male character that finds about the secret otaku "identity" of the heroine, and furthermore in both the main heroines have a popular, social side that starkly contrasts with their hobby.

Oreimo, short for Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai, complicates a simple brother-sister relationship. Kyousuke is a normal older brother just being brotherly to his little overachieving sister, who happens to secretly be an otaku. But... is that really all there is to these two siblings?
