Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawai Wake ga nai #3

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.

Seems that maid cafe in Ore Imo episode 2 was based on the real deal (follow the link for proof!), and they've celebrated by doing the place up imouto style. They were also selling OreImo goodies like coasters~

New Kirino PVC from Kotobukiya! ~6000yen, February 2011! This looks very high-quality, and is a really nice, spirited pose of Kirino!

  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!

Nice! Chara-ani's PVC of Kirino is up for preorder and for the very reasonable price of 4,900 yen! It's 1/8 scale and looks to be very high-quality indeed.

30 second Ore Imo CM!

This is looking to be really well-produced. The animation is definitely very vital and charming.

   「俺の妹がこんなに可愛いわけがない」と「とある魔術の禁書目録II」のコラボレーションがスタートしました!!

So apparently a collaboration project between Index season II and Ore Imo has started! That's all the OreImo official website tells me .. I wonder what this is about? Some kind of promo event?

  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!

Kirino PVC coming our way. Not too sure on this one though, looks like it could be a bit plain.

Upcoming anime about a little sister who's actually a closet otaku, Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii wake ga nai, is getting a web radio show to go along with the anime! This isn't at all unusual, but it features two of the main seiyuu, Ayana Taketatsu (who plays Kirino) and Kana Hanazawa (who plays Kuroneko)! I think this;ll be a lot of fun (I just love Hanazawa-san). The topics that are going to come up to start with are Kirini's fascination with Akiba-Kei, difficult otaku terminology and discussions on life!
