Kyousuke Kousaka, a normal seventeen-year-old high school student, hasn't gotten along with his younger sister, Kirino, in years. For longer than he can remember, Kirino has ignored his comings and goings and looked at him with spurning eyes. It seemed as if the relationship between Kyousuke and his sister, now fourteen, would continue this way forever.

One day, however, Kyousuke finds a DVD case of a magical girl anime entitled 'Hoshikuzu Witch Merle' (Stardust Witch Merle), which had fallen into the entranceway of his house. To Kyousuke's surprise, inside the case is a hidden adult video game titled 'Imouto to Koishiyo!' (Love with Little Sister!). Kyousuke attempts to fish out the culprit who dropped the case by bringing up the topic of magical girl anime at the family dinner table. All that comes out is a strong negative reaction from his parents, especially his anti-otaku policeman father.

That night, Kirino bursts into Kyousuke's room and, in perhaps the first conversation she has initiated with him in years, says they "have things to talk about." Kirino brings Kyousuke to her room and shows him an extensive collection of moe anime and lolicon bishoujo games she has been collecting in secret.

tl;dr: A solid start to a story, though to be clear it’s just a start that doesn’t work as a standalone story at all.

I should note that I have seen the Oreimo anime, though I haven’t read the light novels as they aren’t in English. With that in mind, firstly I want to state that this manga in and of itself is simply too short to actually capture the story properly. It essentially only adapts the first two arcs which the anime does in the first five episodes at a decent pace so this manga doesn’t even manage to adapt half a season’s worth of ...

Other than the character design, which is truly the actual selling point of this or any other similarly inspired and made piece of crap, everything else in this thing, is completely bland. The plot is about as stable as a flaccid penis, starting with a fake premise of a distant brother and sister getting to respect and love each other like any family should, only to dive into the lousily explored aspects of drama, tsundereism and fanservice.

Hardly a seinen, hardly a serious plot to begin with, hardly worthy of so much reading.

The art is a downright disaster, cute characters aside, because there isn't any.

Kyousuke is ...

This isn't exactly the best story. The synopsis gives you false hope that two siblings grow together to love each other and respect one another through some hentai-ish content that the sister is obsessed with. Yet you're sort of toyed with, when the author introduces this sort of strange sexual undertone between the siblings, that doesn't grow into anything, but is still present throughout the manga. There are parts that are downright kind of boring, and to be honest, I finished the manga cause I knew it was only 26 chapters and I can just power through it quickly when I was bored.

The art isn't ...
