Someone had to do it. Ever since this show has debuted it has got ragged on by everyone who only watched a minute of it. If you're going to review a show and or rate. Watch at least three episodes. If you don't wanna read what I have to say: 8/10. One of the best currently airing. Hilarious and worth to watch more than a minute and thirty seconds of the first bloody episode.

Now, let's begin.

Characters(8/10): The only reason I'm starting with characters and not plot is because the selling point, the charm, the grandeur of this show all lies in the characters. They're read more

See, there is a difference between ‘premise’ and ‘aim’. The premise of an imouto story – that is, that a little sister develops a crush on her brother – is, like anything, open to interpretation. The writer then takes that premise and develops an aim with it. For most imouto incest writers, it would be to show how cute the imouto character is. But you can really do anything you want with that. Good writers can make a great but a plain and predictable story out of a decent-sounding premise, but great writers read more

The constant refresh of imouto-based shows are unfortunately becoming a troupe of ever-present formulas, just recycled and used as if it's something new, and Imouto sae Ireba Ii. is another one of these types of shows.

Itsuki Hashima is your typical shounen who's a young siscon novelist; his life revolves around young sisters and his line of friends who are novelists or artists in their own right. And...that's the backstory, kinda boring but as always with imouto-based shows, expect kinda a reverse harem in some form or another, but this show just falls flat out in its storyline.

What sets this apart are the characters who act read more

First, if you haven't watched ... skip to 1:42 of the first episode, you will probably thank me.

the story isn't something out of this world, we have our average harem protagonist "in college" (well...), at least that is something more new. He's a novelist (works in light novels, *cough eromanga-sensei *cough) and has a big ass fetish on imoutos (little sisters), but he doesn't have one, instead he has a trap little bro that really cares for him.

the series goes for the slice of life with a tint of gags each chapter that makes you think it's a 4-koma (seitokai yakuindomo), but the series is read more
