Koi Kaze, Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru Recommendations
Two anime that deal with incest without glorifying it, or attempting to pander to those with a fetish for such things.
People are often put off Koi Kaze due to the age gap between the older brother and much younger sister. Boku wa would probably appeal more to those people because the siblings are twins.
In both stories the leads try to fight off their romantic, lustful feelings for their sisters; ultimately failing to do so. And in both it's made crystal clear how society views incest and the hardships brothers and sisters in love must face. Neither title is smutty... though, going on what I've read,
Koi Kaze and Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru are an obvious match. Not only do they both deal with the same tricky and potentially controversially the subject matter, that of incest, as they approach it in a sober, thoughtful manner that pulls at the heartstrings. Both are realistic and do not use fanservice, these anime are all about the emotional reaction of these characters who find themselves in a compromising situation.
Incest, either love it or hate it. Personally, I find the characters in Koi Kaze easier to relate to due to the length of the series, but they both made me cry. ^^"
I strongly urge fans of Boku Wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru to watch Koi Kaze. Both shows deal with the topic of incest, specifically a romantic love between brother and sister, but Koi Kaze actually brings up legitimate issues that could arise if siblings decided to become a couple. There's no peer approval, no understanding family members, no marriage, no 'love-finds-a-way', only a strong rejection from society. Additionally, Koi Kaze analyzes realistically the psychological profile of a brother that falls in love with their sister (and vice-versa) without sugar-coating it; the heavy mental pitfalls that befall the pair - a mixture of self-loathing and
