Ore no Imouto Kuroneko Incest Moe Anime



The 7 episode of Ore no Imouto may have lacked the moe meganekko of the last episode, but in return provided plenty of the show’s resident goth-loli Ruri, as well as some more of the none-too platonic brother and sisterly relationship between Kyosuke and his moesome imouto.

It should be remembered that this series is only a 1-cour run, in this particular case meaning a 13-episode run, so there will be merely five more episodes in total following this one.

The six light novels (and two manga tankoubon) released thus far do provide quite a lot of possible material for TV adaptation, but given the TV series’ method up until now of adapting the source material, it is still unclear what sort of conclusion the anime will end on – the author is also hinting at a romantic twist in the upcoming novel, further complicating predictions.

This episode, along with the next couple, is still too far away from the finale to base a reasonable assumption as to the production’s plans for the ending, but keeping an eye out for clues in the coming episodes will be a good idea for fans familiar with the novels.

On to the episode proper:


Kuroneko makes a surprise visit.



The color of her cheeks looks more delicious than usual above…

The show’s OP always has a few changes; this episode’s even includes includes the cute Meruru:



Ruri’s tea-drinking looks oh so ladylike.


Ruri does a good Kirino impersonation (this is actually what she is doing here).



The book that Kirino shows to Kyosuke is again drawn by an actual doujin artist 嵐月/ STORMOON of circle CREAYUS (website here).


Creayus’s most noteworthy work is a bevy of gorgeous Code Geass art, especially of C.C., so sampling some of Stormoon’s art on the Channel is definitely recommended.


The party sits down together to watch Kirino’s favorite anime 星くず☆うぃっちメルル/ Hoshikuzu Witch Meruru.





Kyosuke’s reaction to the amount of service from little Meruru’s henshin (transformation) sequence:



The song (simply titled “Hoshikuzu Witch Meruru”) that plays during the show is sung by seiyuu 田村 ゆかり / Yukari Tamura, voice of none other than that supreme mahou shoujo Nanoha Takamachi herself.


Kirino’s dancing to the song looks great – watching her locks of hair bounce to and fro is delightful.


She even does Ranka’s Kira☆!


Kuroneko is sadly unable to appreciate the positivity of this sort of show, however.


The CM bumper has this fun parody of the Love Plus games.


The title of Kirino’s planned book has a fun pun of sorts that may not be explained in subtitles, so here is a quick explanation:

妹星 / Mai Sutaa is spelled with the kanji for imouto (little sister) and then the kanji for hoshi (star).

The furigana hovering over the kanji explain how the word is to be pronounced, “Mai Sutaa”, which means something like “Little Sister Star”, but since the “mai” reading of the imouto kanji sounds just like the English “My”, so the title could also mean “My Star”.




Shibuya’s overcrowded train station area.


The famous Hachiko statue, as seen in countless movies and doramas.


Kirino likes shiny things.



Kyosuke reacts as you’d expect at being asked to buy something like that.



Kirino manages to wrangle these earrings out of her brother, at least.



Kyosuke truly is in an unenviable position here – keeping a little sister like Kirino might be as expensive as keeping a girlfriend, but in his case, he doesn’t get to enjoy of the benefits (at least not this early in the plot).


A lightly moistened Kirino.


Kirino’s nude bathing figure, sadly obscured by the very opaque glass.


Kyosuke is understandable excited…


A call from the lovably moe Manami.



“Kyou-chan…you wouldn’t happen to be… with a girl, or anything like that right now, would you?”



Kirino’s line here is great:

“Disgusting…you’re getting turned on by your own little sister?!”



The ED this episode is shortened by having much of the credits play over the couple talking, but the short ED does feature another new image song, “Masquerade!”, sung by Kuroneko.


Kuroneko’s seiyuu, the popular 花澤香菜 / Kana Hanazawa, best known for her incredibly moe-sweet sing-song voice used in roles such as Bakemonogatari’s Nadeko or Angel Beat!’s Tenshi, is a treat to listen to, so the song is a must for fans of her voice.


The gorgeous illustration that lurks behind the ED and that is used as this episode’s ending image is by 宇木敦哉 / Atsuya Uki (personal website here), a mangaka who is probably best known for also directing the Aniplex-produced movie Cencoroll in 2009.

    Come on, it's getting nowhere. They've even been in a love hotel, but nothing at all happened. If Kirino was turning into a loveable girl by now as an orderly tsundere, we'd see something nice, but as of now, it's not happening :S

    What's the father route?

    Kirino: Kyosuke. I am your daughter.
    Kyosuke: No... that's not true! That's impossible!
    Kirino: Search your feelings. You know it to be true.

    Although Kirino is the closest to him, she has the biggest disadvantage among all would-be girlfriends of Kyousuke, and you guys know why.

    On another note,I'm hoping for them to let the audience see Saori's face even if only a glimpse of it, man she should lose those thick scuba googles and show her goods.

    I'm actually hoping that unless he hooks up with normal girl, there's no actual relationship in the ending. I think that the series should focus on Kirino's path to becoming a social and well-adjusted Otaku, and not really derail itself with too much relationship drama besides Kyosuke ruining his reputation with absolutely everyone for our base amusement.

    The begining was the best part. It basically showed that both Kirino and Kuroneko are horrible fanfic writers! I mean, self inserts, emotecons in writing, purple prose, walls of text, AND killing off characters you hate (or making them sex slaves)!? These 2 basically do everything wrong. If we get them to work together, maybe they can create something as lulzy as the great travesty also known as "My Immortal"!

    Also Kirino dancing along with Meruru's OP while saying "KIRA!!!" was the fucking cutest thing I've ever seen in my life. It gave me heart attacks, and I'm lucky to still be alive!

    Absolutely! Kiririn is cute and I like her, but Manami is the BEST! She's just so wonderful it almost hurts! I really liked the family setting there last episode too. Really comfortable and nostalgic. I hope they get those two together - Best friends ending up together is cliche, but at least it really works this time! ^^

    And with her phoning him up, it may just end that way. His reactions last episode to Manami were stronger than his reactions ever are with his own sister.....at least if it doesn't, I'd forever dream of it this way! :P

    Well, whether or not we will see more anime adaptation/continuation, it's all up to whether the publisher would give the go ahead to animation studio/company...I mean just look at Full Metal Panic...the novel ended already, and it's been years since TSR and still no sign of anime continuation...

    Wow, looking at Creayus' website shows they hail all the way from Taiwan.

    AIC once again shows it means business when it says it's accepting fan contribution for its in-series artwork and music from "anywhere".

    Hanazawa Kana and Taketatsu Ayana impersonating each other has them earning brownie points for me.

    Judging by how peeved Kirino was last episode about her brother spending time with Manami, I just can't help but feel she's trying to be on the offensive this episode, going out on a date with Kyousuke in the guise of "doing research for her novel".

    She'll probably never admit it, though by going so far as to badger Kyousuke to buy her a pair of earrings probably suggests some sort of brother-complex in her.

    You forgot she wanted Kyousuke to be hit by a car and it didn't look like she was joking, more that she's just stupid.

    She was just showing she was ticked off with him for getting all lovey dovey with the neighbor girl and for looking at porn I guess ;)

    Now why didn't that get mentioned.. Kirino accused her brother of looking up porn on her laptop and he didn't deny it at all. In fact he apologized for it.. kind of admitting it.

    I agree with VillainousHanacha btw, Kirino's Kira was the cutest damn thing ever.

    So her getting upset over her brother looking at porn can mean like: "You already have me in this house to peep and ogle at yet you still resort to these images!?" or "Big-brother is mean, he likes big boobies!"
