Shougo Mikadono's father has just passed away, and now he must become the head of Mikadono Group, his father's company. After completing the training to take over, there is just one other stipulation he must adhere to: he will need to find a girl he loves at his new school and marry her by the time he graduates high school.
Shougo transfers to Miryuin Private Academy, and it seems like he has many girls to choose from, such as Konoe Suruma, the class representative as well as his first new friend; Miyabi Kannagi, a standoffish but kind girl; Rinka Kunitachi, the student council vice president; Mei Sagara, who runs a cafe and dresses like a witch; and Mana Tendou, the student council president. However, there is a complication: one of them is his long-lost half sister, and he has no idea which one, so how can he become romantically involved with any of them?
Kono naka ni Hitori,
Unlike many other shows, the main character actually has to urgently get a wife which helps develop the plot unlike many other romance stories where the story gets no where. The twist is that he lost his childhood memories and he has a lost sister who is trying to marry him.
The main character seems like a really nice well rounded person as he is not too much of a pervert, loser or gets into too many accidents. However, as most characters do, he makes stupid decisons that piss people off. The people around him all seem to have their own unique personalities.
far, it has been enjoyable without too uncomfortable or stupid moments.
Overall, i would give this show an 8 as it is nothing special but nothing bad either. If you watch it without expectations you'll probably enjoy the comedy and the progression of the plot. However, as most harems are, its not perfect but at least the story is going forward ( doesn't look like a back to where you started story). It's obvious that the main character does not do things the easy way or else there would be no plot and a simple resolution.
I would recommend people who enjoy nice romance anime to watch this. However it isn't a show for people who want a clever main character that uses strategy to solve his problems like code geass or death note
Shougo had just came back from his father's funeral. He had learned about his large inheritance, but in order to receive it, he must attend a school and get married to a lovely girl. But, one of the girls is his long-lost sister. Shougo, heir to the Mikadono Group, knew he didn't want to bone his sister, so he became a temporary Private Investigator, searching and uncovering the identity of his long-lost sister. Will he succeed? Or will he bone his sister?
With his naive, kind, and determined personality, he ventures forth into the unknown school called Miryuin Private Academy and searches
for his sister. There, he encountered many women, like the blond, competitive princess Rinka, or the childish and quiet student council president Mana, or the mysterious witch girl. Every girl he encountered were suspicious and questionable. He needed an assistant and, thus, Ikusu, aka 'Mr. X', showed up. With 'Mr. X, as his partner, they followed up on some leads and would soon uncover the mystery. Or will they?
[Cue the CSI Theme Song: “Who are You” by The Who]
(On this Episode of "WHO IS IMOUTO?”)
Private Investigator Shougo has been, for three days, searching for the elusive Imouto. He has followed up on several leads, all of which had led to dead ends. As of now, there are five potential candidates, and they all seem very suspicious, as if they know who is the real “IMOUTO”, but refuse to tell him. He was getting desperate. He needed evidence, he needed some lead.
Just when he was at his wit’s end, Mr. X, his partner, burst through the door. She noticed his frustration and offered a suggestion.
She said, “Why don’t we do a DNA test? I’ll get the hair samples of all the candidates and then we can compare them with your hair.”
He had almost forgotten that Mr. X was a ninja in training, and it completely slipped his mind to use a DNA test. What a fool he was.
He said, “Your right! Why didn’t I think of that? Go get the samples, and then perform a DNA test.”
She complied and went out the front door.
[Several days later.]
The results were in, Shougo was holding a vanilla envelope, which contained the answers. He opened it and stared at the contents.
“My God”, he said, “This can’t be true!? Can it?”
“What? What happened? Who is it?” asked Mr. X.
“This girl. I…I was close to her…very close to her! And, yet, she’s my sister!”
“Tell me, who is it? Tell me!" she yelled.
He stuttered, “It’s…it’s…it’s…
*Tune in to next time on “WHO IS IMOUTO?”. Where we reveal the true “IMOUTO” or is it?*
Recommend seeing 3 episodes before of drop the anime, mysteries begin starting the episodes 2~3.
Watch 3 episodes before of give the note for the anime please.
I must also say before that if you do not like animes with hot scenes that appear panties and etc. .. you should avoid this anime, although my goal here is to give you a chance to show.
For me, the author of this work is doing a very good job at getting to have both an anime thriller with a theme so simple, I see that many people did not understand the
essence of the work (his main focus is the suspense, you should not expect he works upon the characters and how their feelings etc. ..) and I come here to try to convince people to give a chance to the anime.
Good talking a little anime itself.
He tells the story of a son of an owner of a large company who dies and leaves everything to his son but for him to assume the company he has to get married first, on the day of the funeral of his father appears a person saying his sister by (his father would have had her with another woman who is not the mother of the protagonist), the protagonist moves to a school after the death of his father to find a woman to marry, but before that he needs solve this mystery and find out who is his supposed sister by father (because he does not want to marry his sister.) The anime is totally focused on this mystery and to help in this development appears several other girls in the protagonist's life when he starts attend the college, the anime works fine its mystery story leading you to believe that is one of the girls and it's nothing you of a smack in the face and you already start to distrust another person holds the anime and you're wanting solve the mystery and find out who is the sister that, if you love to solve mysteries and uncover clues like a detective advise you to watch this anime.
Proof of it all, is one that appears 2 or 3 girls with the same cell that changes the voice, the question is which of the three who can be? Or is it someone else? Who supposedly said on the radio for the school Shougo (protagonist) who stop looking for her sister? Who was the girl who called him six hours every day? Whoever stole the phone of one of the girls who had thrown it in the trash? Whom is actually the person who helps Shougo and lives on his side?
That's just some of the mysteries that await you, who seek to be unraveled by someone!
How about you become a bit like detective?
Note: Since the goal of the anime is the suspenseful if I dwell too much on his description I could end up giving spoilers and many Eventually grace.
Suspense is the essence of this anime, and he is very well done in this part, as I said above still can not solve the mystery, and keep seeing the episodes to see if I can find any clues.He will play for one side to the other and making you believe a track that is not true and nothing you're already distrusting someone else (as I said above), every detail leaves you intrigued and each new track makes you seek links with other previous tracks to try to solve the mystery, it really is exciting in that respect.
The anime art is good, and very detailed, perhaps a bit too colorful and glossy, but you get used to it,scenarios are well made in every detail and the characters also has appearances quite pleasant with well defined traits.
I think it might be one of the weaknesses of this work, I really think that it ta strong in its suspense because the characters do not make you like them, do not have a work upon the feelings of the characters, what they think, what they think, really the whole work is focused on suspense.
The sound should be the weakest part of the anime, are not well placed, in the opening scene has a sound more or less, the closure is a bit better, if you expect an anime Kimi to Boku like that in my opinion has a fantastic sound and good choice of songs, Kono naka probably will not suit you.Some scenes even have music and they do not fit the times he has, but as the anime style is mystery, suspense think to understand a little of that side, the strong anime of this genre does not have to be sound (is how I see it)
The anime is fun and provide a sense of wondering what will happen next, if you expect an anime filled with comedy, comedy scenes without forced and more natural, you probably will not like this anime.Now if you expect that anime makes you actually engage with it, try to understand what goes into it, that detail is what this show is for you.
The problem with this anime is that it was predictable, the story is good but predictable and in the 9th episode i knew who the sister was, it was obvious if you payed attention to the things they said and what they knew till that episode, and even in the first episodes i knew she was going to be the sister with another suspect that i had, but i knew it, was predictable so the story was fine.
Art & Animation
Being an ecchi harem anime this should have great art, but it was just good, nothing amazing or great, the uncensored parts were fine, Ikusu
parts were good and funny, it was good overall, don't expect much nudes.
It was fine, the voice acting was good, but the background music was ok, the OP and ED were boring, overall was fine.
Almost everyone were ok, just Miyabi and Ikusu were interesting and sometimes Konoe, but it was fine because of somethings that you will see, if you get to watch it.
I enjoyed the art and the comedy mixed with the ecchiness, it was fine.
