Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai – Anime Review
Review: Kyousuke is a normal highschooler who doesn’t get along very well with his popular and stylish younger sister Kirino. It’s not like she hates him that much, but rather that she ignores him as something low and dirty not worthy of her attention. That’s the way they both lived their live until the day Kyousuke finds a “little-sister-eroge” r-18 erotic anime game DVD that his sister dropped in the hallway. After this he gets to know her other personality; the personality of a not so confident girl, who uses the money from her modeling jobs to pay for tons of anime and eroge DVDs, which she hides away in her closet in fear of social consequences. Kyousuke does not judge her because of her hobbies and decides to support her from now on, while enduring her still continuing insults.
The Ore no Imouto anime offers a known concept in a new light. Being based on a novel of the same name, if found the artwork of the manga much more appealing than that of the anime. None the less the anime gets the message through and shows us a fine otaku comedy story of a girl that has a hobby she must keep secret from her strict parents and friends, and her brother who tries to support her, but isn’t familiar with the otaku community at all. Critics might say this anime is just another Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, only with a tsundere instead of a shy deredere, but I find Ore no Imouto superior in many aspects and thus worth recommending.
