Hey guys, are we all watching the same “My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute” anime?

Ever since the release of the fourth episode, there have been a lot of people upset with the series, as the characters and situation no longer feels real to them , that they expected “My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute” to be a realistic portrayal of  what having an Otaku sibling would feel like…

Are we watching the same anime?

It’s been bugging me, and when I read Hinano’s post, it finally clicked. I never viewed the anime as realistic. There have been parts I could relate to, and I love that it hits some aspects of otaku culture on the nail, but as a whole, I can’t see the whole thing as realistic. It’s too absurd.  Just…think about. There’s so many plot holes and flaws.

For example, just last week, I asked my boyfriend how did she buy her eroge is she was underaged?  We concluded we had no idea, and then threw around some utterly ridiculous ideas. I also think there’s no way her modeling job would pay well enough to allow her to afford all the eroge unless she was super famous, and if she was, she’d never have much free time.  I could go on from there, but I hate picking apart the flaws, especially when despite the flaws I still enjoy it. I never saw the amazing depiction of reality others see, and from the beginning, saw it as any other series about two people building a relationship. Admittedly, I didn’t expect a romantic/incest angle, but still thought it would a series that focus on the building of the relationship and growing together of two people.

There is still a lot I enjoy about the series, and I don’t seem to understand the disillusionment of everyone else. I like seeing the relationship build between the brother and sister, enjoy the humor, and really adore the relationship with Kirino and her friend Kuroneko.

I feel really awkward when I see people bash Kirino though. She’s not realistic, but at the same time, very similiar to how I acted in middle school…I was very strong-willed and angry although I had a sensitive interior. Luckily, I outgrew it.  Still. I can’t help but…well…like her. Oh well. Only one last thing I can say, really, about everything overall.

Oh well,

and I’m still going to enjoy it.

  1. If you haven’t read my post on this episode, I talked a good deal about it. Ore no Imouto is obviously a comedy and people shouldn’t really take it so seriously. I think some of the people overreacted and started a shitstorm over a 30 sec scene.

    This is why we can’t have nice things…

  2. lol, that gif…

    I’m still enjoying the series as well. The accidental trip/grope made me go “…what.”, but it hasn’t ruined the show for me or anything.

  3. I think my beef with the whole thing is, you can’t be a stupid harem show and then at the same time act like its realistic. At first I was all for “okay bro sis relatinoship, some jokes here and there but she definitely doesn’t see anything in her brother.”

    So then you get him falling on top of her grabbing her boobs and then the light novel where he calls her his girlfriend!??? What the hell? Okay fine you wanna make it an incest series, that’s fine, but why act like it’s NOT one at the beginning? That’s what bothers me. It’s like the entire series is tsundere to itself and is in a huge state of denial until it finally gets dere and admits that it’s incest after all.

    • That last line describes it perfectly, I think. XD And yeah, now I can see why people are upset.

      Btw, I wasn’t thinking of you at all when I was thinking about people complaining. What I meant was your post finally made me realize why their complaining was bugging me.

    • Yup, I agree with Hinano on this. It makes fun of siscon eroge with the tentacle loli with and everything, only to be the exact same thing itself. Only difference is it has a tsundere sister instead of a clingy sister.

      • Asdfghjkl;’, I can’t remember the last time you commented here!

        Yeah, that makes sense to me, and I can understand why it’d bother people. When I think about it, the whole trying to subvert just to be the same thing is funny to me.
