Nakaimo Looks Worse Than Its Light Novel

May 29, 2012 @ 15:49 CDT


Key visuals of an upcoming mediocre imouto incest harem, Nakaimo, appear just as average as the anime – and unfortunately, a recently high output of lacking titles has made “average” a loose term.

“Average” today is this – a garbage quality anime series resplendent in breasts, and absent of anything meaningful. Better yet however, a series, much like Nakaimo, can add an archetypal character generally admired, like the “little sister” type – thereby suddenly rising to the top of many expectations without actually showing any promise beyond female bodies whatsoever. Nakaimo is the true manifestation of generic imouto incest – and service is excess even in the original medium of light novel, yet the anime is far more shameless.

Seemingly aware that there’s nothing else to its name, the anime is more boastful of breasts than the light novels. Comparing the first two images immediately below, the top being from the anime’s preview clip, and the second underneath being from the light novel, one will initially think it to be a somewhat impressively accurate recreation of the characters – that it indeed is, however apparently, the studio responsible for the anime utilized their “artistic license” to further the ero-suggestive exploits of the image.

Notice how a pink brassiere goes missing from its original position on the chest of the blonde haired bishoujo – and see that the girl to the left of her loses her blue undergarment entirely. This is only examining a single frame of difference – yet the discrepancy is certainly significant, and undoubtedly, there’s bound to be more similar changes littered through the anime.

Not to mention, the animation’s illustrations are visibly inferior to the light novel’s. Compare the hair of each female to their respective counterpart – the light novel has more detailed shadow usage, with elaborate gradient streams of color to define value and other elements. Meanwhile, the anime variant of the same characters employs a single bland color to define the entire hair – and these specifics don’t simply apply to the hair, yet the character designs overall, with the skin notably suffering the same as well.

With the plot already repulsively unoriginal, the sub-par artwork isn’t aiding Nakaimo’s anime series in anything but coming off as more dreadful than first believed – and the key visuals merely give an extended visual insight on the recognizably half-baked artwork to coincide with the other deficient traits. The series’ combined detestable bits make for an overall faulty work of animation which seems to emanate the fact of having been hashed together on the fly in the most economical manner.

Looking back actually, the first PV of the anime series was stop frame motion not even on par with a light novel’s promotional clip – and considering that, it indeed is painfully apparent that this series was sloshed together in a series of afternoons for sake of serving a lesser, yet profitable, timeslot.

    Well what can you expect? There’s nothing surprising about what kinda anime it is going to be.

    BTW it seems his sister is not any of the girls introduced in the novels so far, so I’m not sure if it is okay to call this as an imouto anime or not…
    Just some unrelated girls and a guy have “fun”, that’s how it seems to me…

      It’s not surprising at all, yet one shouldn’t be so accepting of lower quality simply as that’s what comes at them.

      However, that’s not to say you shouldn’t watch it if it fits your interests – this fellow is a splendid example:

      He recognizes the lacking quality, yet being relevant to his interests, he intends to watch it regardless. That’s ultimately what it always comes down to.

      Also, I’m pretty sure the imouto was introduced – after all, the imouto doesn’t want him to know who she is, and it’s not written in imouto perspective.

    If this doesn’t turn out to be an imouto show…I would feel betrayed. The only reason I’m watching is to see the guy mistakenly end up with his sister…if I don’t get that…then this was worth nothing. It’s already generic-at least that end would give it a lasting character.

      That would be great. The MC goes all the way with one of the girls and she’s his sister which he finds out after a call from her doctor.
