Oreimo S2 Review

Oregairu’s review has been delayed because I spent a few good hours trying to find a good style to write them in and rewrote it around 2 times. So I decided to go reviewing the other series this season before I get more late work piled on me.

When I saw the end to Oreimo a few years ago, I was left satisfied with the ending. The relationship seemed fixed and Kyosuke had himself a few new friends to enjoy his new hobby with. Then the OVA’s came that followed the True Route (AKA: the light novel path) and that spiraled Kyosuke to get Kirino back from her leave overseas and also open up a romantic oppertunity with Kuroneko. Even then, I found the ending decent and didn’t expect any more from this series.

Unless I’m actively searching for that one anime adaptation of a LN or manga series, I usually don’t pay too much mind to new series. Hell I wasn’t even looking foward to almost half of the series this season with all the second seasons and revamped series. When I learned Oreimo would itself a second season, I questioned myself: What exactly is there left to tell?

The answer to that was HIGHSCHOOL! YAAAAAAAAAAAAY

Apparently, I wasn’t alone in my sentiments as some other watchers thought that the beloved series of otaku’s doing what otaku’s do will become yet another highschool harem. So did it become one?

Spring Anime 2013 Mini-Preview: Minimalist Version

Standard

Redundancy for the sake of weak emphasis on how crappy this post is. Sorry folks, allow me to write some elaborate pieces after this

This is what I believe to be the current chart for the upcoming Spring season. Allow me to quickly disclose my thoughts on them

?????????????????????????? 

and by quickly, I mean VERY quickly. When the spring series arrive, I’ll probably just add the newer series on the weekly recap lists and decide from their if I will continue something or not.

High amounts of minimalism ahead, view at your own discretion

Oreimo Review

Standard

Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai, wow, longass title.  It translates to My Little Sister can’t be this cute, it started off as a Light Novel series

To me, the most suprising anime i ever saw.  First i called it “Crap” now i call it “Holy crap, that was actually good.”

The very idea of a sexual relationship between brother and sister can either be viewed by the following 4 examples

  • 1: DISGUSTING! (Mostly the religous view it this way)
  • 2: Age difference matters, so i go both ways
  • 3: …..if she’s hot
  • 4: Why???

Well i was the 4th option when i first heard about this series.

The story spins around the Kousaka family, mainly between Kyosuke and Kirino, they are siblings.  The two, for as long as they remember are the most disfunctional sibling relationship.  Kyousuke, the protagonist sees his sister as someone who just lives in his house, their relationship is sour, and they rarely talk to eachother.  All that changes when one day, Kyousuke finds a anime DVD.  He mentions it during dinner but his anti otaku father (my hero lol) completely bashes it, his sister then gets up and leaves.  Later that night, she invites Kyousuke into her room.  She reveals that she collects anime, manga, light novels, DVD’s, and eroge gamees (basically, anime sex games) all based around brother-sister relationships, in a simple term, she’s an otaku.  Kyousuke is baffled to say the least and Kirino tells him to be basically her “confidant” or someone who someone bases some type of trust.  Kirino is still an angry little sister to him, most of the time.  Eventually, Kyousuke decides to take on for the duo and say that some games are his and he’s the otaku to protect his sister.  Later we meet a few of Kyousuke’s friends in which the anime only gives them little screentime.  Then we meet a few more principal cast members.  In the beginning episodes, Kyousuke encourages Kirino to find some people who share her passion to which she reluctantly agrees.  There she meets Saori and “Kuroneko”

Left to right: Saori, Kuroneko, Kirino, Manami (Kyousuke’s friend), and Kyousuke

Saori is a girl who doesn’t really care.  Make fun of her looks, she won’t care, she knows she looks bad.  And damn do i hate those glasses.

Kuroneko (real name Gokou Ruri) is a girl who basically is Kirino only that she is focused on teenage related anime unlike Kirino’s little sister one.  In the light novel, Kyousuke goes out with her.

The meetings between Kirino and her new friends continue and more banter between her and her brother continue. Some friend problems shows up whatever, go watch it

The manga, i don’t even read it.  But the anime follows the good ending in which the cold case tsundere Kirino finally breaks.  The bad end special which is coming up, i don’t want to even know.

Good series, i really hated Kirino’s attitude, if i ever had a sister, i’d beat that bitch.  Whether im too cruel, or if i just grew up from a rough family, im not letting a bitch whose my OWN sister to which i am the older sibling ever get away with that kind of behavior.  I was really suprised at the end, but im guessing you could see that ending coming.

(Really unorthadox review, i’m sorry x1000)
