Even I'M surprised how much I'm loving this series, and that's coming from someone who's been anxiously waiting for this anime to be made for years. Ever since I first heard about the release of the first LN, I felt an instant connection with Kirino, the part-lolicon otaku fiend with terminal moe-fever! It's the modern otaku story that had to be told! My fascination with female otaku has been around since Ogiue leapt out a window in Genshiken, but Kirino is a special case. She not only has that otaku streak, but a full-bodied appeal that can only be described as cute AND sexy. Kirino's appeal is a big draw card, but the rest of the show doesn't let her steal the spotlight.
The dramatic elements of her having to conceal her passions around her friends and family, even if I can't wholly relate to them, feel very real and bring you closer to the characters. Knowing how great it is to have friends who share your hobbies, I was really feeling for Kirino when she was trying to make friends at the otaku meetup. This time it was Kyousuke I was feeling for. When he took the fall for Kirino's eroge, I was almost screaming at the screen, "don't do it!". Of course, he's the better bro than me, so he went through with it and earned an adorable moe moment from Kirino.
This episode was really well directed. Veteran, Tetsuya Watanabe was credited with director and storyboard, and his talents in framing the episode really came through to extract that extra intensity and entertainment. I thought, in terms of the visuals, it was the best executed episode so far. Unfortunately the crap BGM was a bit of a let-down and took me out of the moment a couple of times.
This week the ending drawing was done by Na-ga, who you should know as the artist behind the Angel Beats character designs. Frankly though, I'm not a Na-ga fan.
Yoshitoshi ABe drew Kirino! ♥
I've been a big fan of his artwork since SE:Lain. His rich and textured painting style is always atmospheric, but his artwork almost always has an innate sadness to it. Sad Kirino? Not sure if want. Still nicely drawn of course!
Nothing more beautiful than an otaku friendship, especially between two cute girls!
I recognise the cover of that Comic Morket brochure they're reading .. it's a little-known OVA series which parodies the mahou shoujo genre - Kigurumikku. I tried to watch that anime, but the raws never came out other than episode 1 ;_;
Ore Imo PV!! Finally!!
The PV really doesn't give much away as to what the anime will turn out like, but it does showcase some nice, vital animation! At the very least, I can say that the character designs have been ported perfectly into the anime realm, and it will be a vibrant and fun anime! Kirino in particular, compels with her striking moe aura. One of the youtube comments hit the mark:
You will never have a little sister to discuss eroge and anime with ;_;
A glance at some new dakimakura. The Misaka Mikoto pillow cover has garnered a bit of dismissal from Japanese commentors because of the slightly malformed art, and I'm siding with them on this one. The ultimate Misaka pillow cover has already been made (the one with her and an imouto-clone together)!
But I AM very aware of that sexy Kirino (ore no imouto...) hug pillow cover~ It's so cute and ero that I think Kirino herself would want to buy it!

"I'd love to help kickstart continued development! And 0 EUR/month really does make fiscal sense too... maybe I'll even get a shirt?" (there will be limited edition shirts for two and other goodies for each supporter as soon as we sold the 200)
