After his single father gets remarried, Keita Suminoe not only finds himself with a new mother, but also two beautiful twin step-sisters, Ako and Riko. Their close bond as children soon grows into something more personal, and Keita finds himself in a real bind that he vigorously struggles to escape from.
For the twins, the transition from little girls to teenagers brought about changes in appearance as well as emotional growth. Their love for Keita became something more than brotherly love, as they were both overcome with romantic feelings and pure lust. These innocent girls, being a couple of honest young ladies, could not help but confess their newborn love to their poor little brother. Hilarity ensues as Keita, who refuses to see the two as anything other than his sisters, then starts getting into embarrassing, sensual and lustful situations with them. Will Keita cross the line of incest or will he be able to protect his family jewels?
Kiss x Sis is an ecchi-filled harem anime that may make you blush a bit, but it will also surely make you laugh.
This is how you do pure ecchi correctly. No attempt at an excuse story which no one cares about anyway, no mindless tits and panty shots where it doesn't make sense, no generic harem elements. Just straight-up lewdness of the very highest degree, and the closest thing to hentai you'll ever find without actually crossing the line.
Kiss x Sis can be described in pretty much a single sentence: a guy named Keita and his two step sisters Ako and Riko doing horny and perverted things to each other around the clock, solely because they want to. That's all. That's all it needs to be. What makes Kiss x Sis stand out is that for once it is actually hot. The problem with most ecchi anime is that their ecchiness generally only consists of random panty shots and breasts plastered across the screen, and I think most people will agree with me if I say that you need something a bit more sophisticated than that if you want to turn people on. But Kiss x Sis has almost none of that. Instead what the show does have is countless deep kissing scenes, licking and sucking of just about all body parts, grinding, masturbation scenes, on-screen orgasms, countless types of sexual plays and more. In other words it actually *does something* in a sexual sense, instead of solely trying to rely on eye candy. As a result, what you end up with is a non-hentai show which can legitimately be used as fap material without forcing yourself, and that's something extraordinarily rare to see. N-Not that I would do something like that myself or anything.
As far as ecchi elements themselves go, I think Kiss x Sis is most likely the best anime within the genre. There is no other anime which can consistently get you aroused as a viewer as much as this one does. The only thing it's lacking a bit is actual characterization, as there is very little information given about the girls themselves which make you not think of them all too much. All you'll really care about is seeing them get all hot and bothered with each other. Not that that's too big of a problem per se, but if the show had as likeable girls as other borderline hentai series like To LOVE-Ru Darkness for example, then I'd probably have to give this a 10, as in that case it'd be as close to perfect as an ecchi anime can get.
Another thing that ticks me off a bit is the side characters in the show, specifically Keita's homeroom teacher, her little sister as well as a random glasses girl from his school. While they're not bad characters per se, and while they also have really hot ecchi scenes with Keita, I can't help but feel like those scenes would have been even better had they simply starred Ako and Riko instead. The wincest feel is a major aspect of the show after all, and thus not using it to its full potential feels a bit wasted to me.
The soundtrack mostly consists of background music appropriate for sex scenes. Yes, it's just the kind of jazzy background music you'd find in porn films. On the other hand the opening theme is surprisingly awesome and super catchy. As far as voice acting goes, be prepared to hear a lot of moaning and dirty talk, but the seiyuus definitely pull it off with flying colors.
Overall there are definitely a few things here and there I can nitpick on but they're still quite minor stuff. What you see is still what you get, and Kiss x Sis stands out as quite likely the hottest non-hentai anime ever made, and that's a quite impressive achievement in and of itself. If you've only seen the TV airing of the show, then I'd recommend giving the OVA series a shot as well as they're significantly lewder and all-round better for its own intents and purposes.

As far as I’m concerned, the best (and probably most honest) ecchi show next to "B Gata H Kei".
[Quick Review (Weighting, Scores)]
Story (*1.5): 5 – neutral score, as this has no story – which works in favor of its purpose.
Characters (*1.5): 7 – no development of any sort but fun characters and bearable male lead. Consider them as means to an end.
Art (*1.0): 8 – very polished, cute character designs (not too childish), normal-sized breasts (TYVM).
Sound (*0.5): 5 – average. If you like cutesy J-Pop you may enjoy it more than I did.
Enjoyment (*2.0): 9 – extremely sexy with certain comedy value. Look no further if you want a quick fix of ecchi goodness.
Overall (Sum/6.5): 7.2 – don’t be fooled : within the ecchi genre I’d consider this one of its finest. Objectively, it obviously can’t compare to shows with ‘real value’.
Let’s get straight down to business. If you’re looking for something other than ecchi – like heartwarming romance or mind-shattering drama – get the hell outta here. It may seem counter-intuitive, but I have to praise this short series for not trying to establish any kind of story - therefore being incredibly honest about its intention. That is: entertaining us, the viewers, with outrageously sexy moments, scene after scene. Unlike a lot of other shows in this genre, this won’t shove a contrived story down your sore throat that would make you end up in ICU due to whiplash from shaking your head (I’m looking at you, “Rosario+Vampire”, “Sekirei”, “Highschool DxD”, insert more failures of your own choice).
If you care for the premise, it is as simple as that: the sole focus is on brother Keita and his two step-sisters (read: not blood-related) Ako and Riko. As it happens in the fabulous anime world, these two very lovely young ladies are head over heels for their rather wimpy brother (his whiney voice may test your endurance). What ensues are pubertal attempts of seduction to woo the reluctant brother. Everywhere. At any time. At any cost. No-holds-barred. Luckily, the brother most-often ends up going with the flow instead of stereotypically nose-bleeding his way out of the situations or keeping his distance with stoic composure (which would have otherwise killed the fun quickly). It draws the line to hentai by cockteasing you just far enough to leave the possible outcome to your - by then - more than vivid imagination.
As previously hinted, the brother doesn’t completely fall into the stereotype of a pathetic harem lead. Although his voice is irritatingly shaky and his initial reluctance to the sisterly advances makes you question his sanity (and sexuality), he does in fact not shy away from getting it on with the girls once they drilled through his socially imposed (feeble) moral layers. Lo and behold! Let’s put those asexual pathetic male anime characters to the torch, for Keita has arrived! Can you imagine a guy actually exhibiting sexual desire when the time has come with a willing female? Well of course you can, since you are just one of those (an apology to the unlikely female reader(s), at this point I cannot fathom your reasons for watching). But now you can imagine seeing it on the anime screen, how great is that? Hope dies last, or so I’ve been told. High five! (In hindsight, I’ll be fair and say that Keita is still a clueless retard that I’d butcher passionately if I ever had the chance but by anime standards he’s doing pretty well).
Now that the biggest danger of a cockblock is out of the way, let’s talk about the sisters. Remember the good ol’ school days, when pubescent girls grow boobs and discover their power over the male sex? Ako and Riko sure won’t waste a lot of time talking it through. They are (awe-)inspiringly honest about their affection towards Keita. French kissing and breast-fondling inclusive (don’t be naïve thinking that this show won’t have more in store). A comical dynamic is created by the sisters’ rivalry in their attempts to outdo each other. Sometimes you’ll be laughing, other times your jaw will hit the floor at lightning speed. Trust me, it’s a good feeling.
At the point of writing this review, I’ve seen 7 out of the announced 8 OVA episodes. With the exception of the last episode (#6, as the first one was named ep #0), which turned out to be a dull generic school examination episode (with no direct brother x sister action), this series was an oasis in the desert called “ecchi genre”. The animation is excellent, the focus narrow and the narration straight-forward. They did a lot of things right, a tip of the hat well-deserved. read more
Once in awhile I'll come across a great anime that boasts an exemplary plot with dynamic and intriguing characters. Then there are shows like Kiss x Sis, which possess neither of these qualities, but are enjoyable to watch for...other reasons.
I was quite impressed with this show. Sure, the plot is limited to a bunch of extremely sexual scenes and the characters don't have much depth, but Kiss x Sis is able to succeed where other anime like it have not. I've watched plenty of harem/ecchi anime and have really enjoyed some of them. However I find that a lot of these anime fail to effectively use ecchi elements. Sometimes they'll show a random panty shot or have an unnecessary close up on a character's breasts. Such scenes are usually meaningless and fail to stimulate the viewer, which is what they intend to do, and instead end up being rather annoying. Kiss x Sis actually embodies the term ecchi by being incredibly hot and exciting without crossing the border into hentai.
Some ecchi anime try to throw in a plot to go along with the fan service in an attempt to have more meaning and depth. However these "plots" usually end up being completely nonsensical and cringeworthy, and instead of making these anime better like they were intended to, these pathetic excuses for plots actually make the shows worse. Kiss x Sis doesn't bother to spend time developing a meaningless story and instead focus on making as many creatively stimulating moments as possible, which definitely works in its favor.
Keep in mind that this ova initially aired back in 2008. Even though it's older, the female characters are still more detailed and have better designs than many of the characters in newer anime that I've seen. This makes them even more enjoyable to watch when they're doing dirty things and makes me sincerely wish that I was in that lucky bastard Keita's shoes.
The voice acting was fine, but I was really impressed with the believable moans of ecstasy and other sexual noises that the seiyuu made. The theme songs and soundtrack are decent.
While they aren't developed as characters, the cast is still really fun to watch. Especially Riko and Ako Suminoe, the main character's sisters and the stars of the show. They both have very fun personalities and their unquenchable love for their brother is admirable. The two of them (especially Riko) have practically all of the qualities that I'd want in an older sister. They're just so great. The other three girls showcased in this anime are also pleasant to watch and each have their own moments in the spotlight. I'd also like to mention Keita's dad, who is absolutely hilarious and one of the best anime parents I've seen. Now Keita himself if a rather plain and generic character, but that's okay, since his purpose is to be that character that the viewers imagine themselves as, so he really doesn't need to be anything special.
I'd be lying if I told you that I wasn't turned on multiple times while watching this. And that's exactly what an ecchi anime is supposed to do, which is why I like this show so much. I loved seeing all of the dirty situations that the sisters got their brother in. There were many hot and unique ones, and it was a joy watching all of them. Kiss x Sis also managed to be absolutely hilarious at times and kept a smile on my face throughout all of the episodes.
If extreme ecchi isn't your thing or it makes you uncomfortable, then don't watch Kiss x Sis. If for some reason you think that an animated show that was created purely for entertainment is "wrong" and "disgusting," then don't watch it and don't condescend people who enjoy it. It's as simple as that. And if you're someone who wants to watch something sexy and entertaining, I'd definitely recommend Kiss x Sis.
Unfortunately I watched this series after the adaptation 2010 version, but it mattered little. The little prequel story episodes ended from OVA episode 0-around 6-9.
Around those episodes is where Keita is already accepted into Tamahide highschool and funny episodes revolve around events that happen afterwards. The OVA episodes are no different from the 2010 adaptation, however the few OVA episodes that were set before Keita entered Tamahide, I'll have to say, a lot more ecchi and borderline hentai I have seen, that it rivals To Love Ru Darkness.
Nonetheless it doesn't matter too much the order you watch the two anime, they both are good and provide a similar amount of enjoyment. I enjoyed this series and will follow it until it ends since they plan to continue it.
Of course this is my personal opinion of how the anime isn't that bad, and might be worth watching, you don't have to listen to it.
The characters are unique in some ways and each personality add to the work as a whole, tying in the not really progressing plot it turns out to be a good chuckle/time killer.
I would recommend watching it if you like similar series such as To Love Ru, or Rosario + Vampire.read more
