More pollution fills the atmosphere with the release of a manga PV for “Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashii n da ga” – and as one can guess by the obnoxiously long title alone, it’s another sub-par imouto series.
The imouto of this tale isn’t related by blood to her “onii-chan” – her mother remarries and then she magically receives such a fellow annexed into the family. She never decided to speak with him – all until one incredibly convenient day which marks the start of an imouto love story. Reading the manga will behold no more than a string of typical slice of life affairs – daily endeavors by the phony imouto and her “onii-chan”, yet to ensure each volume hits well with the audience, there’s several occasional intercessions of pantsu.
One won’t feel any more any more confident about the series when watching the commercial clip below, which merely has a girl squealing about her “onii-chan” – this video is intended to promote the latest upcoming manga volume, number three, although it certainly doesn’t do a very effective job at scoring our interests.
With such an excess of these little sister love stories in anime, manga, and visual novels, it’s becoming difficult to breath as they smog the air like carbon dioxide emissions – each coming with a title more revoltingly vain and excessively lengthy than the last, reminiscent to encountering an oversized sport utility vehicle. Worse however is how this series is audacious enough to even have a comma in the title – as if it’s not long enough as is, they abuse a grammatical tool in order to lengthen it even further.
In English, the name of this series would be “Lately, My Little Sister has been a Bit Strange” – rather, one has to wonder what sort of creep would be observing his little sister so closely, his non-blood related, only shortly known little sister. And further, why many series of this nature each have a line of observation regarding the imouto as the title. Aside from exhibiting a lack of creativity, the male party apparently was watching his imouto long before she did anything – keeping watch on her like a lab subject.
