Watch Oreimo

Oreimo is also known as Ore no Im?to ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai, which translates into English as My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute! This animated series is considered mature, meaning that it is intended for teen audiences and above. The series is subtitled from Japanese, and it is derived from a comic book series of the same name.

The main character of Oreimo is the average high school student Kyousuke Kosaka. Kyousuke is average in all respects, something that he resents as he lives in the shadow of his brilliant and beautiful younger sister, Kirino. Despite her youth, Kirino is an excellent student who manages to maintain a part-time modeling career on top of it. In spite of these advantages, however, Kirino is also loud and aggressive, and she mocks and snubs her brother at every opportunity.

Things change, however, when Kyousuke discovers that his seemingly innocent little sister has an intense interest in both anime and adult computer games, both of which are stereotypically seen as the province of teenage boys and maladjusted adult men. Kirino is both fascinated with this type of media and fiercely ashamed of it, and when she realizes that Kyousuke knows her secret, she forces him to hide it from the world.

Kyousuke becomes Kirino's ally as she explores her interests and starts to make friends who have interests in common. He must also take the blame for her odd hobbies, which leads to strife in their family and with his own friends.

The series is considered both a comedy and a drama. Though Kyousuke's experiences in hiding his sister's secret and taking the blame for her hobbies is played for laughs, there are also quite serious moments where he must help his sister come to terms with being who she is and liking what she likes. Through the course of the series, the siblings go from an antagonistic relationship to something that is genuinely affectionate and sweet.
