After a long time, Wataru has decided to leave his family home and live on his own. The girls have also decided to split up and most of them are living separately as well. But none of them have forgotten about their brother and still stick together to meet him.
The fact that no one has written a review for this yet is surprising. Don't let that fact fool you though, Sister Princess: Re Pure is a very enjoyable anime. For those of you who have seen the original Sister Princess you are going to see quite a few familiar themes, and for those of you who haven't I would recommend watching the original Sister Princess first, since this is technically a sequel. Now, onto the actual review
The story revolves around our incredibly lucky protagonist Wataru and his interactions with his twelve (yeah, twelve) sisters. The story of Sister Princess: Re Pure is set up differently from you average anime though. Each episode has two parts to it; the first half of every episode is an overall story with every sister, whereas the second half is a character specific arc. You get to see events through both the sisters' and Wataru's perspectives. With only 13 episodes though, each sister doesn't get very much screen time. Despite this fact Sister Princess Re Pure does an excellent job of letting you get to know each and every character.
The art of Re Pure is nothing to be amazed, but it's certainly not something to scoff at either. The characters are drawn very well, and though some of the backgrounds may seem boring or empty at times, it does not take away from the overall enjoyment. The animations are fairly smooth as well.
Since each episode is split up into two parts, they all have two OP and ED songs. I found them all to be very enjoyable, especially the unique character specific songs at the end of the first segment of each episode. I find myself listening to them quite often actually. The BGM was soothing and enjoyable, but not something that will get stuck in your head. Overall the music was quite fitting.
This is where this anime really shines. With one male MC and a staggering 12 heroines, this cast can become overwhelming at times. As you might expect, many of the characters do not appear as often as some of the others, but that in no way diminishes their presence. Since every heroine has her own story arc, we really get a feel for what each individual character is like. Not only that, but we get to see how they interact with each other at times, which was very interesting.
Since each character has her own unique personality, I really enjoyed watching every episode. There's something for everyone; the older sister type, the imouto, the genius, the loli, the detective, and much more. While the easygoing nature of this anime may not be for everyone, I highly recommend you at least give it a chance. I'm glad I did. read more
