So yes, it's another visual novel romance, but one of the few not one of many.

And yes, if they go down that route, there is plenty of said theme. Sora and Haruka are actual siblings, twins at that, so if one is tired of being treated the "fake incest" card that is adopted siblings or similar devices typically used, this would likely be a title for you
And the good news continues... Tired of the fakes. "Onichan" loses so much of its appeal when they aren't even actual siblings.

Assuming the anime does go down that path and follows the game faithfully (which would make sense, but we'll see), I actually think it could lead to some interesting if polarizing discussion. Suffice it to say it isn't just one of those "oh for no reason in particular his twin sister is totally in love with him because it's an eroge" things. It's not quite as serious as Koi Kaze, but there is at least some depth to it. So, perhaps something to look forward to; that's really all that can be said for now.

(Finished the game in the meantime; going through the Fandisk now.)

I sincerely hope there won't be any room for a discussion comparing it to Koi Kaze, one of my all time favorite series. That show is above and beyond daring. I'm now also tempted to play the game.

I've only read the first chapter of the manga, and I'm already sold. This one looks like a winner and I have high hopes for this series.

Loved the brother-sister interaction. It looks like Haruka is a fairly decent guy and he already has several people vying for his affections. A little surprised that Akira, not Nao, is the second female on the cover - my guess is that Nao sees Haruka as a little brother.

If that's the case I think we're in for a Akira-Haruka-Kazuha love triangle with Sora serving as the elephant in the room. Stay tuned...

Ah, forgot about Ryouhei; I wouldn't be surprised if there was a double sweepstakes, with Ryouhei replacing Haruka in the aforementioned triangle. Like the comic potential of this one; if it has the drama to match, they could have a hit on their hands.

Well, suffice it to say, you'll need more data before coming to this conclusion. You sort of pulled the possible plot out of thin air on that one.

Good news. Looking forward to getting more information about the production team.

The manga for this is being scanlated on [mod edit: a site that lists scanlations of licensed manga]

As far as I know, the manga is unlicensed... we'll see if the anime is picked up. For now, I'm enjoying the manga and looking forward to the anime.

It seems that Sora views Nao as her biggest threat. We'll see if any of the girls make a move on Haru; Nao and Akira look like the most likely candidates.

I vaguely recall something about a VN which had real twincest from somewhere, now I know what title it is, lol.

To be honest I'm not all that impressed with the manga so far. It clings too much to its eroge roots, which means girls other than the *main girl* gets boring attention while the actual eroge would, I imagine, don't have those scenes when the player's playing another route. Not to mention that harems as a rule bore me. Nonetheless Haru isn't such a bad protagonist if he's allowed to stand on his own and not bound and shackled down by the It's-obvious-he-was-the-player-character-from-an-eroge syndrome.

I hope the anime handles it better. They'd better stick to Sora as the main focus at least.

I imagine FireChick is linking to an online manga reading site (I think I know which one since the scanlator specifically "authorized" a single site), which means a lot of other stuff that are indeed licensed in North America will also be linked.

Like most games, there's a "Common Path" that introduces all of the heroines and provides some of the backstory for each. Even the game players need to get to know the heroines a bit before they pick the route they want to follow. Some of the characters backstories have impacts on each others routes as well, so some of the development is probably necessary if they're planning on following the game. (i.e. Sora's path in the game is only unlocked after you complete the other main routes, as you need to know some of that backstory first.) It's the challenge of adopting a multi-route game into a single timeline and still making sure everything's covered (plus, of course, not upsetting the fans of the other heroines... always a problem).

Yes, that's the issue.

Not to nitpick , but you only needed to complete one (any) route in order to unlock Sora's

But yeah, this will obviously face the same old issue most VN transitions do - doing justice to all the heroines, while not overstepping certain boundaries (which potentially cuts down how much they can do with each route, depending how romance-related it is) so they can still wrap it up with a conclusive ending. Personally i prefer the approach when an anime focuses on a single heroine without bothering much to "do justice to the others" (Lamune), but i can see why that would leave some people unhappy.

At any rate, given the way the stories of these people connect within their gang, i would say it shouldn't be too hard to make an adaptation which focuses on the perceived main girl, while doing justice to the other stories at the same time. Obviously, how the staff handles it remains to be seen, but Yosuga no Sora is probably a fairly forgiving title to work with in that regard.

Twincest? I'm in. Thanks for the character descriptios, Skyfall! Fufu, Sora seems very... interesting, it was almost like reading a description of myself (I'm not that lazy though).

So, Sora is the most popular character in the game, but is she the main heroine? I just want to know what to expect from the anime. If she isn't the main, I'll brace myself for disappointment. Edit: got my answer through PM. Thanks again, Skyfall!

I think it's always good to maintain focus on the main heroine and the core story. Several adaptations did this in an effective manner. For example, To Heart used the "girl of the week" approach while keeping the focus on Hiroyuki and Akari, and to a lesser degree Shiho and Masashi. Canvas 2 was dictated almost entirely by the main love triangle, Hiroki, Elis, and Kiri - yet the other girls were used effectively as side characters. Lamune focused almost exclusively on the lead couple, but the other girls had their moments and remained likeable throughout. And D.C. ~ Da Capo managed to deliver several likeable female characters while keeping the focus on Jyunichi and his two pseudo-incestuous love interests.

So it can be done. I think the key is to home in on the main story while maintaining the personalities of the side girls and finding effective ways to use them as side characters. Every good dating sim adaptation I've seen has used this formula to some extent.

Crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Given the setup of the story, I think characters like Akira, Kazuha, and Ryohei are good for livening up the story - but I'm much more interested in Sora's relationship with Haru and seeing how Nao fits in the equation. Nao seems to occupy the space exactly in between potential love-interest for Haru and onee-san to the two twins; let's see how this develops.

Oh, is that so? I thought you had to complete them all so the extra choice would appear. Guess not! (Could have maybe skipped a route in that case... )


Anyway, to the topic, I'll just say that the main enemy of all these adaptations in my mind is time. If they try to accomplish too much in the time available, they won't do justice to any given part. To me, using time well in a short story (I think of 12-13 episodes as short, anyway) means staying focused on the main thing and not being too "scatter-brained" (unless being scatter-brained is the point of the show, but in this show it shouldn't be). In practical terms, so long as they start moving seriously towards the conclusion by the 2/3 point, that might work. We'll see...

Because the visual novel has no known, the anime will have at least 12 or 13 episodes to be more faithful of the visual novel than the manga.
