Yes, that's fine.
Was just curious on how Imouto's speech pattern was translated.

For some reason, I liked the little sister better than Mikoto.

Was it the oblivious panty shots?

"An emotionless girl is fine, too"... is what I'd like to say.

Haven't the Japs coined a new term for this type of characters? I think it's Kuudere... or something like that.

As for why I liked the little sister better, I guess she reminded me of Anna Kyōyama from Shaman King. Well, little sister is almost completely passive, whereas Anna was passive-aggressive. Even so, their designs and their regular personalities are quite similar.

I recognize that term, but Mikoto#2 doesn't match my understanding of it. She's not a cool-type; from a chapter's worth of impressions, she lacks the... social consciousness(?) for that. Instead, she's the emotionless, "I do not understand your strange human customs" kinda character.

Kuu means empty not cool.

Are you really sure it means that, and only that? This is one of the places I've seen kuudere used: http://danbooru.donmai.us/post/show/...e-flandre_scar

「 素直クール 」の略語の一種と認識されることが多いが、全くの別物。 "Obedient cool," an abbreviation of a kind of recognition that are often completely different.
That thread also mentions "dandere" as alternating between emotionless and loving. But bah, kuudere and dandere are quite uncommon terms compared to something like tsundere, at least in my experience, and even tsundere still stirs up great debates over which characters it applies to.

^I've seen it used for characters like Rei, Nagato Yuki, Hoshino Ruri, and the like.

Anyway, I wonder if Misaka's little sister will get a larger role.

Kuu literally means empty or air.

Now in context of Kuudere. The Kuu (empty) part pertains to the emotionlessness of the character. The dere part is the payoff as the character later goes on loving girl mode.

ex.

Rei of Evangelion with Shinji running away for their lives and his father. She blushes when they are alone.

Zero of G-On Riders from emotionless maid android to dojiko around the male lead.

Vanilla H in the Galaxy Angel games.

Ruri Hoshino of Nadesico when even she sarts to have romantic inclinations.

Chachamaru of Negima again android in dojiko mode.

Alternate Yuki Nagato in Disapperance of Suzumiya Haruhi.

Tabitha of Zero no Tsukaima: Princess no Rondo. She got the hots for Saito.
