I've read 8 chapters and watched the first episode of the anime.

If it maintains its relatively non-sleazy, amusing yet honest look at this scenario, I am going to really like this. Kirino is well balanced and has an 'it' factor that can't be denied. Her average older brother is the perfect foil for her excellence. I'm reminded of My Girlfriend's a Geek in some ways due to the similarity of females being in the situation of being fresh, popular and successful being the unlikely type to have such fandoms. This one seems to tow the line with a bit more tact, though. But as some suggested, it could simply be a foil for two people who were unable to get along to finally get along.

I'll be interested to see what happens in Chapter 9, because Chapter 8 has left Kirino in a real bind.

Read the spoiler in the wiki it said that Kirino and Kyousuke are gonna go out? BF><GF relationship?
well I think Kyou-kun pretty much have a harem in him so who leading? in the novel?
Imouto=Kirino?
Osananajimi=Manami?
Sempai/Tomodachi=Saori?
Wannabe Imouto=Ruri?
Imouto's BFF=Ayase?

I'm pretty sure Ayase didn't like him at all to be considered part of his harem. Not sure about Saori, but someone else in the forum also said that she's just a friend to Kyousuke.

Saori is only a friend of Kyousuke

If it's Harem of Kyousuke it's Kirino, Kuroneko and the almighty normal childhood friend Manami.

Spoiler for #7 preview:


edit: in looking for this, I accidentally came across a blog where a guy summarizes all the volumes and spoiled myself silly. Don't translate it if you don't want to know. Don't look for it if you don't want to know.

This looks like the official synopsis so I'll take it with a pinch of salt. I've come across so much of misleading synopses from Japanese LN that I'm hardly surprised. There could be some unexpected reasonable explanation behind all that. Rather, there USUALLY are.

Volume 6 of the light novel ended in a cliffhanger in which Kirino asks Kyosuke to be her boyfriend. Nothing else is know other than it kind of out of the blue.

Therefore that preview for volume 7 sounds legit, but as larethian said, synopsis often misleading, there must be a reason for Kirino asking Kyosuke to be her "pretend" boyfriend, [not that she didn't want it to be reality anyway....

To put it bluntly, she is a female otaku with "male taste", who plays 18+ eroge and is into imouto type of characters---simply because she finds them cute (this, from what I gather so far of the translated light novel; I don't know if there's a much deeper meaning behind her hobbies). her character doesn't exactly sound like someone you would expect to really exist; perhaps, I would have more readily accepted her character (or hobbies) had she turned out to be a fujoshi or a less "hardcore" otaku, who isn't necessarily into imouto type of characters. That's why, I think that the enjoyment of this work depends on how willing you are to accept Kirino as a character, or the situation her older brother currently faces as she tries to share her secret hobbies with him.


What I mean as "stretch of reality" is more or of say Nogizaka Haruka's Himitsu [similar work in turn of using Otaku world as setting and I also enjoy]. That series have tons of stuff where plenty of things and setting can't possibly happen in real life.

While it is unlikely a little sister will play Imouto games with her brother, it's not impossible. Kirino herself is more of plot device and necessity more than anything. On the other hand, there are girls that will play bishojo games and even 18+ eroge by themselves, and imouto types are actually more common for them due to the moe factor. Obviously you won't find any girl playing tenticles or rape eroges, but pure love-imouto games isn't too much of stretch for girls that like moe animes and plays bishojo game.

However, I'll agree with your assessment that to enjoy this work you have to like or at least interested in Kirino as a character afterall the story is revolving around her.

You guys DID notice that while Kirino is firmly latched to Kyousuke's arm, she's forcefully pinching his hand? ^_^

yep, which only confirm my believe that it's just pretend relationship (not that Kirino wouldn't wish it to be true)

or Kyousuke was ooooogling another girl and Kirino is keeping him in line

Therefore it could be taken as they are actually dating and she gets jealous at the sight of Kyousuke looking at other girls, there we have the tsun.
The dere would be she offers herself to be ooooogled at

....well thats just my thoguhts wandering aimlessly in the gutter, so no need to pay attention to that

I tell ya one part of me really really really wants to see it happen.

but the other part thinks yea it probably is pretend and should stay that way cause it would kinda ruin the story and feel of the series I think.

but then the urge to want it to really really really happen is bloody strong!

Thats the kinda messed up world anime and manga is, gotta love it!

Both the end of Volume 6 and the spoilers for vol 7 are too ambiguos. Do'nt think a discussion can get anywhere for now, hopefully Vol 7 will be out in less than a month, so by them someone may be able to confirm if it's real or just pretend.

Maybe, maybe not. It's certainly not licensed in english so far. Although if the anime end up being very popular someone may want to license this. But then its contents are quite mature (at least all the talk about eroge, doujinshis and etc) which may hinder the chances of it getting licensed.

It's also being translated by a fan, although the translation seems to be a bit slow, 3/4 chapters of volume 1 and I believe they said last chapter of Vol 1 should be translated soon.
