I could respond if I understood what you were saying; the show isn't about brothers, and I don't even know what is going on in your second sentence.

The feelings that develop over time there are very far from romantic. Let me link you to the Westermarck effect for a more scientific view on that.
The article you linked does make sense. Some people just react differently to these types of situations I suppose. The first Da Capo series just bothered me in some way, even though that type of relationship is accepted more in Japan, it doesn't change how I personally react to it. I can usually tolerate cousin relations since I never had any cousins live anywhere near me I suppose heh.

I dunno, it's in the same vein as "little sister" moe for me. Some people really like that type of stuff but that type of character is never moe for me.
