Not exactly, I'd say it depends on where each person draws the line between "still funny" and "below the belt". While I know that this is all meant as a joke, I still can't bring myself to consider a young woman wearing the panties of her younger sister on the head as funny. I associate this -as a poster above me pointed out- with otakus and the fact that I would be even less amused about it if Akari had a brother (yes, that's the double standard I have as a yuri fan ). Others draw the line somewhere else: some people already feel uncomfortable when you tell a politically incorrect or dirty joke, some people laugh when they see someone's head getting blown off. And that's okay, really. It's just that comedy doesn't mean everyone has to laugh about the same jokes.

For some reason I get the feeling Akane could be as creepy as she is right now because of the gender change.....

I actually could have puked if Akane was a boy siscon. This het incest disgusts me. But because she's a girl, I'm ok with it.

Akane is a HUGE siscon. We knew that since S1E1, so why are people acting so surprised, or even shocked that she behaves the way she does in this episode?

I loved this episode. Well, apart from the "I gained weight, so I must diet!" bit from Himawari. I knew right away that her boobs were the cause of her weight gain.

In the anime she has always been a girl!

Well I believe people can be forgetful sometime. Expecially if the said character was never seen nor heard again since first episode of s1. I've known someone who enjoys watching a series but never bother to remember character names/roles and most of the time it's up to me to keep reminding him. This usually happens whenever there is a series with large number of casts and a certain character was never appear for serveral episodes.

Because being a "siscon" doesn't automatically mean having a dakimakura of your sister and putting her panties on your head. Akane is quite extreme. That is of course the reason me and others love her so much, but I can see why it would disturb some people. You just need to ask yourself how you would feel if she was male.

This is true in the season knowing that it was a name but two times (episode 1 and 7) then unless the person looks Loop Season 1 if she did not remember it not her

Heh, I guess stealing people's panties is not a form of harrassment then, since it involves no physical contact with the owner. How reassuring for all the panty-sniffers and peepers and whatsoever out there.

We know that Akane won't go any further since this is published in Yuri Hime. But the implications are there (if Akane were a guy, or real, or in a different series you surely wouldn't consider this moe or pure or whatever) and danger will always be looming like a shadow over Akari's head. Anyway, that's enough commenting from me for a week, I'm probably getting a bit carried away here and am spoiling the fun for others. It's not like Akane's the main focus of the series anyway, so I'm just going to enjoy the rest of the show

I'm not saying it is "good" what it does (steal cullotes, have a pillow with a picture of Akari ect) but from the moment that it does nothing on Akari ... It is clear that to steal cullotes is a form of harassment ...

Pish-tosh. Akane engages in harmless fantasy. Who among us hasn't had a cake and tea party with a pillow that we put a frilly little dress on, and read eroitic stories to?

...What?

Okay, okay, she's barking mad.


Seriously though, specific circumstances aside, anyone who saw this move:

You don't get it. I'm very ambivalent about her character. One part of me giggles incoherently whenever she's onscreen, but another part of me is horrified that the show would actually play something like this for laughs. I mean, I get that she's a siscon, but the lengths that she goes to are just plain disturbing.

She's still my favorite character though.

An older brother, I'd agree -- totally creepy. But a ten year old wearing his sister's panties for a hat -- hilarious.

This topic is so fascinating to me, honest. When the infamous Nisemonogatari incest scene came about, people flocked to the appropriate thread to marvel at its "sheer genius".

Then we've got a 2 minute gag where the furthest Akane gets is dressing up a pillow and wearing a pair of undies on her head and everyone's actually afraid.

I'm not criticizing anyone, I'm legitimately fascinated by how this all works.

The social nature of fandom can be nearly as fun to watch play out as the actual shows.

As for my thoughts on the Akane scenario, I think that, if Akari ever found out, she might actually appreciate it. (She wants all the attention she can get, after all.) But Akane is clearly hiding it because of the way society works, and Akari doesn't suspect a thing. Recall what she said about the water slide a week or two ago. Even if Akane did express it more openly, she would never do anything to actually harm Akari.

Those two are probably better off than Sakurako and her sisters, at least.

It's just my opinion, and I offer no opposition against any views here, but there's seriously nothing to be concerned about here. What bothered me about the Nisemonogatari scene was that it was heavily implied that they were serious about it. With this, it's just a big gag, a characteristic by nature.

Like I said, it's just my view on it. I just wasn't expecting any posts of this caliber, so it's interesting to me.

Just for the record, and not trying to take a side in this, but we also knew that she had that, and presumably did that, since the first episode of the first season as well. We saw the dakimakura, and a pair of panties that was specifically identified as Akari's.
