Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne 1 – Christ Almighty, that Is a Long Title

Big brother didn’t know what to do.

He was at his wit’s end. Did his little sister even know what she was doing? The way she paraded around the room in nothing but a bath towel . . . it definitely wasn’t right. She didn’t seem to understand that, however. Was it all just a game to her? Was she being serious at all? Did she think what she was doing was still as innocent as when she was but a child? Big brother didn’t know what to think. Just considering all the possibilities made his head spin.

Then his younger sister came out of the bathroom.

Haha, just kidding, you perverted little fucknuggets. There’s no way I’m doing that shit again.

But just for the hell of it, I watched the first episode of this dumb show, because my time is clearly worthless, as you all know well. It’s pretty gross and skeevy, but that’s not the main offender to me; rather, it’s that the show’s just boring. It goes through all the imouto-lusting motions without any real inspiration. The jokes boil down to two types: “Hey, big brother, I want to do this perverted thing with you!” “Um, no, you are my sister, and that is just gross!” “SHOOOOOOOOOOOOCK” and “You are our classmate’s brother — we would like to fuck your brains out!” “uhhhhhhhhhhhhh” “No, big brother can only bone me!” “Cue laughter!” Neither of these basic jokes is particularly funny, though the idea that anyone would want a little sister like this is definitely hilarious. Maybe the only thing I came close to enjoying is that the brother clearly takes some sort of sick pleasure in dismantling his sister’s advances. Just look at the glee in his eyes as he tells her he loves her like a sister. He is a secret asshole. I can tell. Too bad he is stuck in such a dull series.

How could anyone watch this after Who is IMOUTO? That show is terrible, yes, but it doesn’t pull any punches. There’s no pretense of classiness. Some of the jokes are legitimately funny, even if they work only because the characters are all dumber than what Miyabi will plop out after she’s done with Shougo. (SPOILER: She is IMOUTO.) And for at least a few episodes, there’s a semi-interesting hook with the sister being a creepy stalker right out of a horror movie. (THE CALL IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE IMOUTO.) It definitely falls apart and becomes a generic, stupid harem that thinks the audience cares about Shougo’s awful company, but before then, there’s at least something different.

OniAi has nothing — well, except for my life after I slit my wrists for using that stupid abbreviation. But with my dying breath, I encourage this anime to go crazy. Go wild! Be more than the product of an assembly line if they constructed pedophilic anime at Ford plants! I’m not watching any more, but the audience that’s sticking around deserves something better, yeah? They ate the roast beef of IMOUTO, but now you’re serving them month-old bologna that’s never been refrigerated. That’s just not right. Give them the sister-fucking anime they want and deserve. You can do it. I have faith in you.

    Does anyone know which light novel has the longest title?

    “Moshi Kōkō Yakyū no Joshi Manager ga Dorakkā no “Management” o Yondara” seems pretty long.

      …That’s probably why I’ve never heard the full title in Japanese until now.

      I fell asleep in the middle of reading that. It’s just like watching the anime!

      What If a Female Baseball Manager Read Drucker’s “Management” Book. Yeah, that was a score. I sorta enjoyed it because of the plausibility of using work-style management into sports management but the rest was meh to me.

    If you assume that the sister was separated from her brother for several years because she had to go to a mental institution, then the show makes a whole lot more sense. It doesn’t explain the other girls in the house though….

    No pretense as to why they all like him though, they couldn’t even be bothered with that, it’s just how it is, and fuck you if you want to know why the girls are all vying for his dick.

    I’m watching this simply because I felt I hadn’t watched a crap imouto themed harem ecchi show in a while, and wanted to remind myself why this was.

      lol, you picked the wrong season to scratch that particular itch! Last season had the imouto show du jour.

    Is that bologna turkey or pork-based? And listeria is no laughing matter.

    I couldn’t watch this thinking it was anything other than the death knell for the siscon stuff. Maybe that was wishful thinking but I didn’t get that because I wanted to, I felt it because “It goes through all the imouto-lusting motions without any real inspiration.”

    That’s such a sad way to put it. As if there are some guys in a room, flushed and sweaty and reeking of vodka, editing these scripts but their hearts just aren’t in it. Yet base teasing at incest is all they know how to do anymore.

      I wonder if it is sadder to be the writer or the viewer.

        I think both and neither, depending on your situation. If you had a sister you wished you could bone, then maybe it would be a bit more enjoyable to you. Since in this case, the sister is the one doing the advancing. But then again, I would recommend Aki-Sora over this.

    Unfortunately my wishful thinking is very stubborn and the results are usually disappointing. I’ll be watching this for a little more hoping something original or funny will happen. Depending on the 2nd ep though I might drop it :)

    what if BiBro ended up with his sister and they had twins?
    It shall be destiny and the cycle will repeat again and again.

      I bet this has been done in a hentai at some point.
