She wasn't shown in the first sequence of the opening where each heroine was presented. So the answer is probably no. It'd be nice if there's an imouto arc though...

Nope Miya doesn't have a path in the game, which is a huge crime.

How awesome would it be if it turned out that mysterious 13th volume is focused on the imouto?

I would be ecstatic because I was also expecting to see an arc dedicated to Miya

Well let's just hope the final 2 episodes are used on her

For a realistic type series the first episode certainly pulled a few things "normal guys" wouldn't do *points at the lunch cue scene*. No to mention how all of a sudden, the school idol shows interest in some common kouhai. This would have been my favourite type of series if it was shown to me 2 years back but by now I have seen enough of these to make them a fairly boring-predictable experience. However, the episode certainly was good...even though I can just guess what is going to happen with the story. It reminds me of Kimikiss (like a lot of people has mentioned) but without the potential reset after each girl for the perfect "otaku dream" series...that kinda annoys me if the story doesn't end up being connected but we shall see. I have a strange feeling about this series in that I half like it and half dislike it for some reason...well at least the eye candy is top notch

Yeah, I'm in that boat, too. I would love to see a Miya arc. If not, 1 or 2 episodes focusing on how she feels about her brother would suffice. Because Miya obviously has a brocon, and I would love to see an episode or two devoted to that.


Anyway, the arc that I'm looking forward to is the Nanasaki arc. The manga adaptation made me a big fan of her, so I can't wait to see what the anime is going to do story wise. Ayatsuji's arc should be interesting, too.

I wonder how they decided on the order of character arcs.

If it were just a matter of popularity, then Nanasaki Ai would've been first. Last time I checked, the Japanese Amagami wiki has her on first (Haruka is second in the rankings), but her anime arc is fourth in the order.

Perhaps the order in the anime is supposed to be a mirror image of the manga..? I just find it odd that Haruka's story arc is the first. I was actually expecting Tsukasa to be the first one.

They could be using a "Save the best for last" strategy. Because I think Ayatsuji's arc is pretty far away, too. They might be ordering them based on importance. Or there could be no ordering process at all.

As to why they put Haruka first. I think it's smart because it acts as more of a hook compared to a less popular character leading things off. But at the same time I don't think it would be too smart to give away the most anticipated arc (Nanasaki's) right off the bat. I say most anticipated because she seems to be the most popular character (Deservedly so ).

If I had to choose, I would say there's no specific strategy in the arc ordering.

Yea I also expected Tsukasa first as well just cause of the manga but I don't think theres much meaning to the order, probably just picking names outta of a hat.
Well order is last thing on my mind really, 2nd episode is foremost atm, then after that will 3rd episode, etc etc

Well, if "based on importance" means featuring the default for last, then I guess that makes sense. For viewers and fans though, the real meaning of such is always different, hence favourites and rankings.

But you're right. Maybe the order of character arcs was spread out in order to balance viewer interest.

I'm not really complaining, since Haruka has become one of the more interesting characters for me; however, after her and Kaoru I don't think I'll be looking forward to the rest of the arcs as much these two.

Sigh... Ah, well.

This is one of the few harem done right. Not much blatant ecchi and fanservice but it's all in the details. The hair! The eyes! I got hooked by the manga just because the eyes and facial expression are drawn in such a convincing and playful ways.

I think the best thing is to just not look at anime relationships with reality tinted glasses.

^ I believe manga spoilers are not allowed in this thread, even in spoilers tags. So I suggest you to edit your post before an angry mod sees it.

I don't have an answer for that, but it's interesting to note that the cast billing on the official site and elsewhere goes in this order: Ayatsuji Tsukasa (Nazuka Kaori), Sakurai Rihoko (Shintani Ryouko), Tanamachi Kaoru (Satou Rina), Nakata Sae (Konno Hiromi), Nanasaki Ai (Yukana), Morishima Haruka (Itou Shizuka). This may mean nazuka Kaori is the "star."

The story order will apparently be Haruka, Kaoru, Sae, Ai, Rihoko, Tsukasa: almost the exact opposite.

It would be a shame if Kaoru's arc is coming up next. I'm the type to save the best for last, and was hoping we'd get to see her arc at episode 20-24.
