Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Half Season Review [Completed]
I FINISHED IT DON’T HAVE TO REWRITE HISTORY YEAH YEAH YEAH TIME TO SLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP
All from episode seven, but I think this sums up Kirino’s psychocognitive behaviour pretty well
Kuroneko and Kirino get into a fight because both of their novels were so horrible they wanted to kill each other for it.
However, Kuroneko’s needs a brain and some mental functions such as READING to understand, so Kirino’s triumphs cause everyone can read it, whereas only about 1 in 60,000,000 people can read Kuroneko’s. That is to say, 1 in 60,000,000 can read at all. Yes, there are some 60,000,000,000,000,000 people in the world. The Africans made sure of that.
Kirino then thinks she’s such a good author that she must get her brother into a car accident but Kyousuke has more common sense than the average American, maybe because he’s Japanese. Though any American would gladly jump into a bunch of cars cause their little sister told them to. Right? At least it’s safer than smoking :V
“Oh ho ho, I wonder what will happen if I pull this…”
She submits her work to Raigeki Bunko, a publisher that specializes in books about little sisters created by 14-year-olds, cause that’s an entirely productive marketing strategy.
Kirino’s money-making scheme:
1. Make horrible book
2. Add little sisters -> horrible book turns into BEST BOOK OF ALL TIME CAUSE THERE ARE LITTLE SISTERS IN IT WOW WHY DID NOBODY FIGURE THAT OUT BEFORE
Somehow, she has ‘fans’ as well (who are obviously just trying to fulfil their fantasies of an entire planet with only little sisters), and gets an agent, Iori Fate SetsunaI KIMOCHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIi
…Then she gets an anime.
A FUCKING ANIME, before the MUCH MORE WORTHY Ashirogi Muto does.
HOW THE FUCK IS THIS FUCKING WORK I DON’T EVEN
She does what all stupid, cocky, outspoken, unrealistic, ignorant, bratty middle school girls do – writes a bunch of sheer, useless, and utter crap expressing her unfounded, egotistical, and quixotic opinions on matters far transcending her beliefs and understandings.
Obviously, the editor-creators of the animu completely ignore her opinions, and Kuroneko voices her own, OBVIOUSLY ENLIGHTENED IN COMPARISON opinions. Of course, she uses a dictionary to check out what the meanings of all her words mean because THIS PLOT THIS PLOT
OH WHY HAVE THOU FORSAKEN THEE, OH GREAT GOD OF TIME
I JUST REALIZED! RELEASING WORKS BY STUPID FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLDS IS A GREAT MARKETING STRATEGY! LOOK AT HOW MUCH MONEY TWILIGHT MADE!
Kyousuke says that her little sister’s happiness is more important then tens of others writing her anime who’ll get ripped off it fails.
He then realizes that he hates Kirino, so he stabs her to death.
Then for some reason nobody seems to care about the anime anymore, even though it’s PROBABLY STILL AIRING, and “Kirino gets really interactive with the eroge” nudge nudge wink wink yeah well who cares anymore
In an ENTIRELY UNRELATED TURN OF EVENTS WOW HOW UNEXPECTED ANOTHER UNEXPECTED TURN OF EVENTS WOW WE WEREN’T EXPECTING THAT TO HAPPEN HUH some weird… THING decides to… SING in front of a bunch of… MEAN people who love little… SISTERS.
IT DOESN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING SO HERE’S A PICTURE FROM YOU ARE UMASOU THE BEST ANIME ANIME HAS THE BEST TO OFFER
So that’s how the dinosaurs got extinct
AND YOU KNOW WHAT HERE’S SOME WEIRD WHALE-FROG THINGS TOO
YOU SEE I’M GETTING REAL DESPERATE HERE I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT IS EVEN KNOW WHAT
OK OK OK I GOT IT YOU WANT SOME LESS RANDOM CARP DAMN YOU CARP YOU KILLED ALL MY DWARVES HERE YOU GO YOU CARPERS
IS THIS A SCREENCAP COLLECTION OR NOT LET’S JUST SAY IT’S NOT AND PROCEED WITH THE ‘STORY’
…Then she dies.
OH? EXCUSE ME THERE IS NONE
Just the end. Kirino decides to go to AMERICA
WAIT MAKING SNES OF THIS STORY IS LIKE TRYING TO PLAY A SENSE FROM THE 1980s
WEEGEE WEEGEE WEEGEE WEEGEE WEEGEE
Really, it’s kind of creepy to think that I only (mainly) ever have three faces; being neutral, being :/, and facepalming.
Oh and at the very end, Kirino’s life consultation continues. CONTINUES. Continues. DOESN’T STOP. Doesn’t stop. CONTINUES.
KURONEKO’S TWO OTHER SISTERS ARE SHORTER THAN SHE IS
WHY ARE HER EYES RED ANYWAYS MAYBE SHE PLAYS TOO MUCH LITTLE SISTER GAMES ON HER LITTLE SISTER COMPUTER. SHE SHOULD’VE BOUGHT A BIG SISTER COMPUTER CAUSE BIG BROTHER IS DEAD.
SO WHO WAS PHONE?!!?!
I’d be sweating too if I were them – I mean, inhabiting two bodies at the same time is cool, but I’m not quite cut out for it
I guess that’s the end.
It’s rather funny how higher standards can impose higher consequences. Kirino’d die of depression – even metaphorically, that’s a bit extreme – if she doesn’t get an anime. If she never wrote a novel in the first place, would she care about not getting an anime? Let the cow be content, grazing in the meadow – for men, ’tis truly a climb to freedom, treacherous as it may be. As Kunis said, ought we “Always have a backup plan”? We should set high standards, but always have a lower standard to fall upon, to comfort ourselves, to break the doom awaiting in the peaceful meadows below.
Kirino obviously either forgot about this, or her standards were so high, there was no point to build a smaller standard upon.
Then again, she may have had one as a last resort all along, but she knew Kyousuke would smack the director’s face literally (as in, in the manner of literature) because IT’S AN ANIME WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT
Anyways, all these Oreimo characters are all very bratty – is that realism? I’m too caught away in my own little enclave of knowledge that I either don’t notice the people around me are being bratty, or people aren’t being bratty. Sure, I know a few people who ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US WHAT HAPPEN LOLOLLLLOOOLOLOLOLOL I NOS LOLCATS, but those sure aren’t appearing in Oreimo (Japan’s done good to corner its otaku society into a… well, corner). I haven’t actually seen people behave in this way. So loudly rebuking people who know much more than they know, so shamelessly doing what would definitely not have been tolerated here – is this.. supposed to happen? This seems almost strange here, very utlänning – but hey, if that was a Hierarchy of Foreignness, what are the Japanese to us igloo-dwellers but Foreigners?
Ayase calls Kyousuke onii-chan. Kuroneko calls Kyousuke onii-chan. Basically everyone introduced in Oreimo are female – those who aren’t are either Kyousuke and his dad, or one-time characters (or so minor that they’re basically one-time characters). Even those not introduced (in face) in Oreimo are female.
…What type of anime is this? There’s no hareming going on, there’s no sisconning, there’s no incesting, and the God of Gerunds is probably hating me now by sending me lines and lines of red squiggles, but what anime is this? Slice-of-life? Social commentary? I don’t even. It’s amazing. You’d have expected some romantic tension to occur, and occur it did, but it wasn’t really tension. You’d have expected some slapstick comedy to occur, and occur it did – with such a setting, heaps of misunderstandings could have occurred. But nooooo, Oreimo didn’t become one of those, it just HAD to make the setting serious, it just HAD to actually have decent (though by no means interconnected) plot, it just HAD to be…
What is the real, anyways? How is it possible for us, us utlänning, to perceive what is foreign and what is reality to those strangers to us? To those in an entirely different culture?
No. All I can say is, Oreimo does an excellent job for a what-if scenario. What if my little sister wasn’t this cute? (OK, well, no, scratch that) What if my little sister was a hardcore erogamer? What if, what if what if?
And all I can say is, these what ifs did a wonderful job in executing this show.
Brilliant art (as to be expected from the studio that made Strike Witches), I didn’t really hear the music, deep characters (Kirino was a bit /too/ deep), everything was done in perfect balance.
But I still didn’t like it.
Something was wrong.
I mean, this was excellent – it should’ve ended at Episode 11 with that final confession, but it didn’t, and spread onto Episode 12 – WITHOUT SEEMING FILLERY (hah, let’s see you try to do that now Kaminomi). There’s no reason not to give this a masterpiece
I got it. I understand.
Any good anime, once it’s exceeded a limit, you stop looking at it’s pros and concentrate on its faults. What do you see more, the good things in a horrible piece of fanfiction, or the bad things in (what is considered by many) a masterpiece work – Twilight, for instance (don’t blame me, I haven’t read it and I’m judging from the fans point of view)? Wait, that was a horrible question, because that’s not what I’m comparing. Whatever, you get my gist.
Oreimo had way too many flaws. For one, the timeperiod was over 9 months. NINE MONTHS. When things like, say, Fahrenheit 451 (the book), take place over one week. ONE WEEK.
This disconnectedness made me feel disconnected. Yet, it also showed Kirino’s change over time, which I didn’t notice. Oreimo’s definitely worth a rewatch for all it’s worth.
Finally (or secondly), the main problem.
They just weren’t anime like.
They were realistic.
And is that good?
AND THEN AFTER THEY DO THAT IT ENDS BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW I WAS LYING AND THIS REALLY WAS JUST A SISCON ANIME FROM THE START
Overall Rating: 6/10 (Amazing)
