The 5th episode of Ore no Imouto picks up right where the previous incest-y episode ended, continuing the charming story of a beautiful 14-year-old model both blessed and cursed by fate to walk the bold path of an otaku.
The episode does start off right at the grounds near the Comiket’s Big Sight (or as it’s called in this particular show, the “Ocean Sight”), but first, a quick look at the OP:
The OP for the show is actually fairly mutable, usually changing a few frames with elements related to the upcoming episode, but this episode also had Kirino’s model friend Ayase was promoted to whichever rank allows for name placement in an OP sequence.
Being a closet otaku in this sort of show tends toward “troublesome”.
Siscalypse’s Mikoto, working a double shift as Kyosuke’s tsundere trainer.
This phone happens to have some fun lines – to paraphrase one:
“I’ve seen it on the news…in Japan, there are anime and games where they do perverse things to little girls…”
Perish the thought!
This suitably scandalous otaku-related headline reads something like:
“Popular Game Copycat Deviant (did something) to a Little Girl…”
This one goes roughly like so:
“Game Copycat Otaku Deviants Continue To Spread”
For those who might be curious, the concept of an especially negative perception of otaku held by commoners is actually not at all an invention of creative license by anime screenwriters.
Comiket is often treated as a mass gathering of eccentrics in media reports and the status of otaku is assuredly seen as a negative by most Japanese, despite an increasingly high profile for otaku with the moefication of Akihabara and such mainstream drama as “Densha Otoko” softening their image a considerably from the early 1990s, when the memory of the famed “Otaku Murderer” were still fresh.
This shot bodes very well for the eventual DVD/BD release, as the ethereal fog suggests a pending ero-upgrade for the home release.
More service, with Kirino’s limber body movements captured in excellent detail:
This glass gets a considerable amount of screentime in this scene…
Fortunately (for Kyosuke), he bounces back from this groin attack far faster than anyone has any right to in the real world.
The true tragedy shown above is third actor in the scene, the poor glass, meeting its demise…
Kirino speaking for Type Bs everywhere:
“I never get tired of watching anime filled with lots of cute girls!”
A pair of lovely Kirino/Ayase zoom shots.
Another fun line spoken around this time in this scene:
“This is proof of me and Kirino’s love!”
Some brother-sister manhandling:
This episode lacked a full ED sequence as the last episode did, but it did provide a gorgeous ending illustration as usual:
The cute ED song was, again, a new number, this time named オレンジ / Orenji (Orange) sung by Kirino’s seiyuu Ayana Taketatsu, sounding a bit more like her Azunyan voice than usual for this show.
As a bonus, the CMs aired during the episode included this one for the upcoming PSP game:
The screenshots shown seem to be of the mostly sanitized, light-ero visual novel variety that normally are as close as it gets to an eroge on a console, plus some 3DCG ingame avatars, awkwardly animated as non-motion captured CG characters often do.
