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.

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

Alright so everyone knows series are made to bring something entertaining to the table and not always something new. This is a perfect example a bunch of girls that love the main guy as well as live in the same dorm as he does and they mess with him all the time but that is because they love him. This is the point of this series is sheer ecchi harem comedy, it doesn't deliver anything else.
So while many people may not find this reassuring I found it refreshing as to how they compete against each other for the protagonist's attention.

(Before you plan to absolutely downvote this review & start saying something against this anime because of 9 points I gave it,please read this review first,thank you:D)

Likeness meter=?*)

Ecchi anime have been quite popular lately.Every season,there are 2-4 ecchi manga+novels which get an adaptation.Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai Yo Ne(Yup,this is its full name:O)is one of those highly ecchi anime which get an adaptation & become quite popular among a certain group of people.

This is a hit or miss kind of anime.Its wonderful if you watch it for its comedy & characters(Which are lovable) & overly-disgusting if you get offended by the bro-con.So watch read more
