Ore no Imouto’s second season has received what is perhaps its first artwork – a mizugi based treat with a surprising amount of substance to it beyond simply several fine lolita framed females in their revealing swimsuits.
Of course, the main attraction of this image is the imouto and her companions – the unbelievably cute little sister sports a bikini blue like the sky, matching her eyes of a similar soft hue. All the while, the frilly white trim provides quite a fluent sense of harmonics in the image.
Aside from being the color of the yandere’s mizugi, white is also spotted all throughout the art in various places – yet returning to where it is seen on the imouto, more prominently her lower half, this mizugi certainly seems as if more provocative than a regular bikini in how it doesn’t even fully cater to the height of her waist. The yandere in her simple bikini has the most elegant choice of ensemble, truly as refined as an outfit no different than underwear can be – and her swimsuit has ribbon ties, arguably the most enticing of mizugi styles.
Off to the page on the left, Kuroneko and crew simply stand glaring. The most intriguing facet of this image is that the imouto poses with her school friends – meanwhile, the otaku are both with the half-memorable protagonist Kyosuke, and there’s a clear distance between these three and the imouto unit. Also worthy of note, Kuroneko is standing right beside Kyosuke – with the bishoujo who hides her true appearance being furthest in the back.
The positioning of the characters implies that Kuroneko and Kyosuke will have some sort of relationship as the imouto is occupied with other things, not that this wasn’t obvious from the first season and OVAs already – yet the image repeats the statement.
There’s plenty of routes Ore no Imouto’s second season can go – either tarrying along with the manga or light novels, or perhaps even following along with the visual novel. Either way however, we ultimately remain curious which female will the final outcome favor – if the light novel is the source medium, it won’t be the gothic lolita. Then again however, it depends on how far into the lives of the characters the anime will go.
