Dengeki Bunko has announced that the light novel Eromanga-sensei will be getting an anime adaptation.

The series is created by writer Tsukasa Fushimi and illustrator Hiro Kanzaki, the duo of the Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai series which ended in 2013. Eromanga-sensei began publishing several months after the conclusion of that series, and the sixth volume of will go on sale on March 10.

Synopsis
The "new sibling romantic comedy" revolves around Masamune Izumi, a light novel author in high school. Masamune's little sister is Sagiri, a shut-in girl who hasn't left her room for an entire year. She even forces her brother to make and bring her meals when she stomps the floor. Masamune wants his sister to leave her room, because the two of them are each other's only family.

Masamune's novel illustrator, pen name "Eromanga," draws extremely perverted drawings, and is very reliable. Masamune had never met his illustrator, and figured he was just a disgusting, perverted otaku. However, the truth is revealed... that his "Eromanga-sensei" is his own younger sister! To add to the chaos that erupts between the siblings, a beautiful, female, best-selling shoujo manga creator becomes their rival!

I have no plans on watching Oreimo at moment because of the whole incest, hopefully this doesn't go the same route.

Oh boy, A-1 Picture doing this.
What a surprise. (Not)

i've read the manga up to latest chapter translated

this pulls similar premise to oreimo with extra vapidness coming from its theme, light novel (LN in general is badly written)
1. you get an attention whore tsundere who boast on sales & she isn't a competitive
2. all they talk about LN is about erotic drawings instead of story structure (even if they did, is just rom-com
3. you get unbelievable lot if character that couldn't exist in real world (wish fulfillment S)
4. the absent of background exposition (maybe because i read the manga) makes it even worse, this author just kill MC parents for no reason & never even exposition it

if you already aware that oreimo is shit, this 1 amplifies it not to so bad its good, its so bad that i have no idea why any publisher want to continue this shit

outside of monetary i suppose

people call fushimi tsukasa have fetishes on little sister, i can guarantee you he/she's not, its about exploiting hijinks

Hmm... so Sagiri's voice actor is a new voice actor. I wonder if she is the same one who voiced Sagiri on that crossover with Oreimo.

Also, A-1 animates this? This is totally gonna be Oreimo-like.

I'm going down with any ship that is not Sagiri's ship. Just so that I can curse the author to pull another out of nowhere siscon ending.


It's the same one.

Produced by A-1 Pictures? That's expected.

Does anyone who has read the source material know if main loli is more annoying, as annoying, or less annoying, than Shit Tier Waifu Kirino? If she's not nearly as whiny as Kirino, I'll keep this on my PTW list.

The problem is that while I love the designs for this guy's series, Kirino is annoying as hell and one of the reasons why I put Oreimo on hold, though I initially dropped it. I just wonder if main Imouto here is on par with her irritating personality or not. She's 12, I'm kind of worried she's more annoying.
Sagiri is nothing like Kirino. She's much more of a dandere character

Can see a bit of her here:


That will most likely be her VA in the anime too btw
Yes!! A laid back(probably) Imouto character.. Not that I hate Kirino though.

I'm reading this before I watch the Adaption.. For the Manga readers, Is it good? I liked Oreimo(The ending's "meh") and this is from the same creator so.. yeah. I wanna hear your opinions on this.

Mar 12, 2016 10:24 AM by Kousuke-shii

If this will be anywhere near as entertaining as OreImo, I'm totally in. Especially if the little sister is actually likable this time >_>

Mar 12, 2016 8:53 AM by Touko

Definitely on my "to watch" list.

Mar 12, 2016 5:28 AM by Ichilicious

Well I enjoyed Oreimo so I bet this will be pretty good

Mar 11, 2016 5:23 PM by SecretDinosaur

>Oreimo 2.0

What did the anime community do to deserve this?

Well, it is the same person who did the art for Oreimo, so this seems like it'll be a different version of it.

FANTASTIC NEWS
I am head-over-heels in love with this trashy LN already. I have been anticipating the day it would become animated. Such a happy news!
It's so much better than Ore Imouto in many ways. Especially the characters. I'm glad that the main heroine is not spoilt and annoying like Kiniro.

Saigiri is so cute and shy.
Her design is so cute, I love her long white hair with little pink ribbons.
She's a bit reclusive and has a weird perverse side and lesbian tendencies.
She's a good illustrator. I find her very relatable.

Elf is so pretty and I love her fashion style. She's rich and a bit vain. She loves fantasy so she tells people that she's an elf. She seems to think that her novels are the best in the world.
She's similar to the blonde from The Hentai Prince & The Stony Cat.

There are a few peripheral heroines but they're not the main two in focus.

The humour and story are very good and silly as well.
I'll be glad to see all the great fan-art, cosplay and doujins that this will produce. I live in Queensland so maybe should travel to Eromanga and cosplay as Saigiri and take photos next to the sign. There's a dinosaur museum there too.

Wohoo cant wait. Hopefully it's not sister route again.

Hmm I remember putting Sagiri as my wallpaper last year.
