Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai

Post by chaosprophet » Wed Oct 06, 2010 3:41 am

Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai is an ongoing light novel series with a current manga and anime adaptations. The anime adaptation started airing last Sunday.

Here is a summary taken from MAL. Will be in spoilers tags because it spoils part of first episode.
SpoilerShow
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.
This thread is for discussion regarding the series. If you're posting info about future occurences, like manga and novel spoilers, or spoilers about an episode that recently aired, please use spoilers tags.

Before starting the anime I already was a pretty big fan of the series by reading the little that have been translated of the manga and the novel (10 chs of the manga and 3/4 of the first novel volume). So I already was pretty biased towards liking it. Bias aside I think it was pretty good adaptation wise. I really love Kirino and hope she does well in next year saimo contests, including ours. It also have some other interesting characters that will be introduced later. Also there are many twists to this story yet to happen. Will be lookign forward a lot to every sunday!

So who else is watching this? How you're liking it so far?

I want someone to dub the things Kirino says over K-ON! clips of Azusa for comedic effect.

Use abbr. 'Oreimo' by one of the best subs I can find.
This is a bit close to Nogizaka Haruka but here we have a brother-sister border and thus a total different story.
SpoilerShow
How can Kirino buy School Days and Cross Days? These two are somehow awful.

Regarding the games you see on Kirino's pile, one may noticed most of them don't look her profile at all. She is supposed to be only in the imouto kinds of eroge. Games like the one you pointe are prob there as advertisement and/or because they're famous so viewers would recognize (there are a lot of eroge companies listed in the end credits after all). All in all those kind of games shouldn't reall be part of the story and any time she comments it should be purely as fanservice.

Add a comment: Someone has found Da Capo, and someone Alismatic.
Add a comment: Some of the staffs will have to think of a good icon for ISML 2011... or maybe until AST 2011.
Anyway:

Episode 2 was very fun, with a very funnyotaku discussion that seems to connect with many different viewers. Also introduced some interesting new characters that will get more important later on. Now Ep 3 should be the climax of the first volume of the novel. That part was what made me become a very big fan of the series! Looking forward to it a lot!

Oreimo is probably the best anime in Fall period. I like how Kirino has a bro-con and obviously the fact that she's an otaku. After watching this anime, I searched after and found the light novel and manga. Kirino surely made a great impact on me.

After the second episode Kirino stole my heart. I'm almost sure she is gonna be one of my favourite characters of this season.

I'm enjoying the series so far, but I'm not sold by Kirino / Kuroneko, especially with voice acting. Wish Kirino's voice was somewhere between her current voice and Hirano's voice... I had faith in HanaKana but her voice doesn't seem to match Kuroneko at all, unfortunately. At times she slipped out her cutesy tone and that totally threw me off orz. But I've been certainly enjoying Tamura Manani and Kyousuke, though.

Well... Kirino is voiced by the seiyuu of Azusa from K-ON and his brother is voiced by the seiyuu of Tomoya from CLANNAD. So maybe that's why it sounds so familiar to you

Well, at least you're gonna see how hard Kirino tries to keep everything she likes together 'on the same level', if you read the novels.
All those episodes, narrated in Kyouske's perspective, could be pretty touching if you realize that Kirino is in fact very grateful to her brother for all his actions to support her.
Her personality, together with Kyouske's love toward his sister, made me like this couple a lot.

Also, Kirino is way better than Haruhi, who shows almost no mental growth throughout the series.
Sorry, no offense for Haruhi fans. I don't hate Haruhi personally or anything.

I'm a fan of Haruhi but I think Kirino has much more power and is more attractive (not necessary physically). I think from episode to episode, Kirino will gain a lot of fans !
