Sasami-san@Ganbaranai


Author: Akira
Illustrator: Hidari
Status: Ongoing (9 Volumes)
Genre: Fantasy, Romantic Comedy

Synopsis:
Quote:
The story follows a hikikomori (shut-in) named Sasami who is unmotivated about even changing clothes or eating. Her brother takes care of her, even though she despises his slave-like nature. Sasami spends her days viewing the outside world via a "Brother Surveillance Tool" on her computer. In the outside world, the three beautiful Yagami sisters and Sasami's brother are in the middle of relationships worthy of a romantic comedy.
There's going to be an anime adaptation by SHAFT airing in January and you can read the first part of the novel on Dreadful Decoding.

I was wondering, is the face-hidden brother Shaft's idea?

In VN it's understandable but how are you supposed to describe a faceless MC in a LN?

One more thing, is the novel first or third person?

I think VN art inserts always show him with his face covered.

It's just the seiyuu. In the anime he doesn't look that much older than Sasami either.

Thanks, I reckon it should be around that point as well. After watching episode 3, I was fairly surprised with how all the questions behind the world altering power and the three sisters identities are being answered this early. I felt like they should leave some of them open for latter volumes. With all the mystery clearing up like this, it's as though author is planning to end the story right here, but it seems he had plans for more.

Was it ever explained why Sasami thought she lost Amaterasu's power to begin with? There didn't seem to be anything indicating that she gave her power away.

Sasami's unconscious wish = Her brother's happiness;
Brother wishes for something -> Sasami's power is activated -> Brother gets what he wants -> Sasami-san: "The power of Amaterasu is with my brother"

Something like this?

Umm, watching this series remind me of Mahouka.

Sasami = Miyuki

Sasami's older brother (didn't bother remember his name) = Tatsuya

...what do you think?
