New anime Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi (“Bridge to the Stars”) is being esteemed as one of the season’s best, thanks in no small part to its devastatingly cute little brother character…

The anime is actually based on a fairly generic bishoujo eroge – judging from the viewer response, whether the shota plays a large part in future episodes may well influence success of the series.

2ch in fact thinks the anime might as well just dump the females and make the shota the heroine instead:

“Ayumu-kyun kawaiiiiiii….”

“The little brother is so cute!”

“I watched it and otouto-kun was the cutest character there… what am I supposed to do, I’m supposed to be straight!?”

“Little brother so cute. This is the best of the season!”

“So they sleep together!”

“I want to hug the little brother…”

“This is getting a hugely positive response isn’t it?”

“This is a protagonist’s little brother moe anime then?”

“It has homo elements? I’ll watch it for sure.”

“This is opening my eyes to shota…”

“Get rid of the women. Make Ayumu-kyun the main heroine.”

“You guys really like your shota, don’t you?”

It would seem so…
