This anime is not 'beautifully drawn' to me as opposed to what i`ve seen people say.
Now if it were, i wouldn`t think of that 27 year old guy as being perverted & nasty. If it was to be beautifully drawn, i`d think of him as being cute & then it wouldn`t matter so much if he likes his sister.
Now don`t get me wrong, incest is okay with me. I love Papa to KISS IN THE DARK && I`m in love with my younger sister alot. The art in Koi Kaze just gives me a different feeling. BUT. i`m watching this all the way--i`m intrigued xD

plus the ending preview or whatever it was, was humourous.
Koshiro: A girl that I got dumped by came to my office, so i was kind of apprehensive. I went on a date with my younger sister without knowing it. I cried in front of a high school student at my age. IS THIS ALL RIGHT?!

One day I was randomly looking though the crunchyroll website when I stumbled upon something called "Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru" (aka: I love my little sister). I watched it and thought it was kind of nice. Someone told me "ohhh... Koi Kaze is much better".

I watched Koi Kaze and HATED it. lol

Is this the one about the loli-loving, sailor uniform adoring, incestuous young adult male who walks his sister to school everyday and there is somehow always a gentle skirt-lifting breeze when he's with her?

Fucking assholes.

Anyways, I enjoyed this episode. It was cute and had a calm feel to it. The animation looked good and was very smooth.

For real lol, but at least nothing i'd consider really spoiling the whole show.

Very good first episode.

I personally like the design of the characters. I tend to avoid most animes with those stereotypical huge-eyed and ridiculous hair with the characters having bishie faces. Main reason I'm watching this is because the story but the designs help me like it even more. Good first episode.

After seeing the entire series, I can easily say this episode is one of the highlights of the show (good thing, seeing as it's the "hook"). Establishes everything you need to know in just enough time, and lets the viewer know only just enough to want to see more.

And like Liam O'Brien said about the Ferris Wheel scene: "How many animes do you know of that can move viewers to tears in the FIRST episode?"
"I... don't need anything else...if you don't need anything else."

It seems beautifully drawn to me, I don't know what Noelle_x3's talking about. The soft tones really set this apart for me, it's like watercolor. Maybe it's not high production values, but I really like the artwork. As for the story, this almost reminds me of a visual novel I read (and the only visual novel I've read, for that matter) in the romance genre. I guess that means the set up is kind of typical, you know, the guy who's life seems to be headed down the drain, and the girl who brings youth back into his life, reminding him of what life's all about. Typical, but with the twist that she's his sister. So far this is really well done and I can't wait to see the next episode.

This was a decent first episode. Did a pretty good job of bringing me into the atmosphere.

That awkward moment when you find out that both your parents are one of the same.

Well, good episode so far and I like the more serious mood of it especially at the Ferris wheel. I guess this is one of those series that is to be taken seriously as it contains psychological themes.

Can't wait to see more. I hope this won't turn into a Nice Boat ending

Completely not pedo. Just a middle aged guy taking a highschooler teen in an amusement part getting awkward moments and talking about their tragic love stories.

The first encounter with the sister was obviously cliched. When MC's ex-girlfriend told him that he's letting her go easily and said "Did you ever love anyone from the bottom of your heart", I was originally mad. I mean she's the one that left him and made it seem that he should be fighting for her back. However, she turns out to be exactly right in that he did lose his feelings for her for whatever reason. So in this case, saying it was well justified.

I also thought it was a little strange for a high school girl to trust a stranger and hang out with him but when you think about how they both were rejected and are feeling lonely, it's not so far-fetched.

It's going ok so far. There was definitely a connection between the two. I just wish it was a little stronger.

A fate connected by the wind of love! Well this sure started quite lovely and well it was pretty much clear that that girl would be his sister when the boxes moved into his house but the ending sure was still funny! So let's see what the story has to offer us but I'm sure this will have a nice story to it!

Wow, what i thought would be the entire plot of this show happened within the first episode. Yet it didn't seem rushed. I hope this wasn't setting the bar too high...

WHY AM I SAD ALREADY!! The feels when he started crying while on the ferris wheel QQ.

I really hope the anime will be about him trying to get back with his ex. But I know that probably won't hapen.

Overall I'm enjoying this anime more than I expected, aside from the fact that a 28 year old going on a date with a 15 year old this anime feels rather realistic. I really like the character design and the fact how the little sister isn't overly cute looking.

Only complaint would be there teeth but the animation is still really good considering the anime is from 2004.

Anyways really good ep 5/5 from me

Ano, ano, ano, ano, is ano the only thing they know how to say?!! Ano aside I don't really know what I'm getting myself into. I'm going into this show completely blind besides the cover art and I think it's going an incest route? I don't know, but if it is I might not be the type of person that'll like this show. It seems really mature though so maybe it'll even it out. It's pretty good so far so I think whatever direction it's going in they'll pull it off. At least that's what I tell myself because I don't want to watch bad anime lol

That was surprisingly cute, I heard of this show a few years ago from a friend and finally got around watching it with no idea of what it was about. Not really a fan of incest but it's kind of cute and it's not the usual way incest is portrayed in anime so it might turn out ok...

Even with this anime's infamous subject matter, I found this episode to be very compelling in how it goes about showing things, though it's not like anything controversial has been shown yet. It all feels very honest and subdued, like we're really looking into someone's life.

So not only is this a love story about two people with a age gap, it's also incest. I want to see where this goes...

Hmm I don't mind age gap anime/manga, I've been reading a lot on them and I thought it's interesting for them to tackle the taboo of the society.

Although it's kind of like a "fateful encounter" to be able to meet your sis twice at the train station and in front of your office like that.

Ugh, I usually enjoy both incest and age gap romances, but seeing both in one series with realistic setting and artstyle? Might be tough... For now I really enjoyed the first episode.

Well, I kinda have mixed feelings bout this one. The premise is good in the break up, but the incest route is kinda, predictable and cliche. I don't like the VA of the girl and I hope the plot develops in a good direction.

Without change,we end up becoming the very person we hate.

I was dead until the moment I met you. I was a powerless corpse pretending to be alive. Living without power, without the ability to change my course, was bound to lead me to a slow death.

Well, I don't care about incest in anime but Koushiro's co-worker looked so creepy talking about fifteen-year-old girls. At the same time I am watching this so Idk what the hell is wrong with me.

Not much to say about the first episode, I simply wished Koushirou wouldn't stutter when talking to a girl much younger than him.
