Ore no Imouto ga Konnai ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai – 05 & 06

Bam! Two for one! More loli and more ordinary!

Oooooh shiiiiiii- What’s this? A DOUBLE episode review? Why have you decided to do this, oh great and mighty Hato-kun of the southern lands? Well my loyal minions (readers), because nothing much happened in episode six! So I’ll be blasting my way through episodes five and six, in preparation for the seventh installment!

If you remember last episode, after good ol’ Summer Comiket, we ran into Kirino best buddy, Ayase. After an extremely awkward conversation between these two and Kyousuke, Ayase and Kirino have a little breakdown fight. Ayase turns all yandere and freaks out when Kirino’s hobby is revealed. Ayase promptly tells Kirino to never talk to her again.

Despite acting all tough, Kyousuke can see through her, confronting her about Ayase. Strangely enough, in midst of the argument, Kirino yells at Kyousuke that he’s never cared about her before, so why should he care now? We get a loving kick to the testicles and then Ayase complaining that she wont talk to Kirino because all Otaku are dirty and bad and stuff. According to her, Kirino cares more about her hobbies than her best friend, so that’s gotten her all worked up. That and she still thinks Otaku are born from hell, or something. So what does Kyousuke do? He calls on his secret weapon. Tsundere Dad.

After getting some vital information for his awesome, tsundere father, he completely shuts down Ayase’s theory about all Otaku being killers and what not. Alas, she continues being stubborn. That’s when Kirino steps in off the playground (lol) and gives her a good (mental) slap. Buuuuut, she still can’t accept it. So Kyousuke comes to the rescue once again and makes a giant cock of himself. Ayase thinks he’s a freak and Kirino and her make up. Everyone wins! Except Kyousuke.

And with episode five coming to a close, we’ll jump straight into episode six! Now, I know I said nothing much happened, but that’s actually a lie. I’m sorry for deceiving you guys. Don’t hate me.

We open with Kyousuke and Minami talking in class about Halloween which is fast approaching. After accepting Minami’s invite to sample sweets (heh, kinky) Kyousuke and some random other dude strike up a conversation. He brings up the subject of Minami and Kyousuke, and whether they are dating or whatnot. He shuts him down, saying it would be weird if he was. Like dating a grandma. Weiiird.

While this episode isn’t completely focused around Kirino, we still see glimpses of her, obviously angry that Kyousuke isn’t around. D’awww. We get some childhood friend family antics comprised of good ol’ Granddad pretending to be dead, the little brother looking like a monk and helping out around the family shop. Funnily enough, Minami’s grandparents try to set Kyousuke and her up, trying to get them to bathe together and asking when they’ll get married. Her granddad is amazing, by the way. Has to be seen to be believed.

Of course, good ol’ gramps managed to get them to sleep in the same room, making Kyousuke and Minami a little uneasy. They talk for a while, then get to the big questions. Minami asks whether he would date anyone, to which he replies he wouldn’t (yeah right), because he enjoys his life the way it is now. Minami seems pleased by that. She’s happy, Kyousuke is happy, Kirino isn’t. Because her beloved brother is at home. Poor her.

End Thoughts

Not the most flattering screen-shot of tsundere father…

For all you Track and Field weirdos? I guess. Whatever.

Stairs are a wonderful thing, aren’t they?

~Insert creepy and ominous Inception noise here~

And more fan-service pictures. For Masu, I guess?

Five was a great end to that Ayase section. Kyousuke once again makes a giant fool of himself and pretty much ruins his image all for the sake of his sister. Does he really not care? Strangely enough, I found the whole thing about how Ayase would continue on about what she watched on the news or read in the papers extremely interesting. It’s what I’ve been studying for the past several months, the representation in the media. It’s a really fascinating topic and I fangirled (guyed) it up when I saw it mentioned, it was brilliant.

I’m a little sad that Kyousuke wont have any normal interactions with Ayase though. Well, at least that I can tell. I thought she’d be some strange and on the side love interest, which could have been a  nice addition. I was a little disappoint as to how little a part Kirino played in all of it, she kind of just turned up at the end and fixed everything, and I didn’t really enjoy that. Though, Ayase’s reaction at the beginning of the episode was legendary. Scratch that. Tsundere Dad was the best.

Episode five aside, I actually thought that episode six was the better out of the two. One thing that amazed me was the beginning of the episode when Kyousuke was discussing him and Minami. I have to say, that was one of the best ways I have ever seen an anime handle a relationship. Kyousuke’s face didn’t go red, he didn’t stutter / blood nose, his mate didn’t make any snide sexual remarks and there was no random shot of Kyousuke’s thoughts of, say, Minami is a swimsuit or something. It was incredibly refreshing and reinforces my statement of this being one of the better anime  this season. BRING ON EPISODE SEVEN.

  2. Dan-go says:

    Oh and that grandad is so awesome “Grandma is calling me from across the river Styx” “Grandma is downstairs” WIIIN

  3. Tofu says:

    Woo~ Go Gramps! ahahaha xD

    In Episode 5, I’m kinda wondering why of all the things Kyousuke say’s he ends up saying he likes her sister or like they are deeply in-love or those manga’s are his even thought half of the time in the anime his arguing how it’s his sisters and wants to keep them for her sake of being her.

    But I feel sorry for Kyousuke… Only because Ayase saw good in him after a tragic event with his sister in Episode 4 but in Episode 5 Kyousuke ruins her view on him by saying all those stuff for his sister… Sure that’s awesome Kyousuke that you’d do anything for your sister but now YOUR reputation and image is ruined xD

    Episode 6 was a good episode for me since Minami didn’t get much air time on the past episodes, we learn more about them and it’s sweet how everything comes together, like Hato said, there’s no nose bleeding or anything like that, more normal and real life which is good ^^

    As for Episode 7, I’m gonna have to postpone it T___T Too busy *sob*

      Unluckyyyy, all i’m gonna say is KURONEKO!!!!!!<3<3<3

    I like the childhood friend, but isn’t her name Manami?

    • Hato-kun says:

      Hurr, you’re right! I just always think Minami. Will change ASAP.

      • Tofu says:

        It was Manami all along? :O Minami sounds more better though… but oh well

        Hato! why does your Rank say Mainly Russians lover!? ><"

  5. Overcooled says:

    Even the PARENTS and GRANDPARENTS are becoming cool characters…Wow. XD Oreimo certainly isn’t slacking when it comes to sidecharacters. Tsudndere dad ftw!

    • Tofu says:

      I full ROFLed when the grandpa was acting dead and surprised everyone (besides the grandma) You would really ponder on how energetic those two would of been when they were young don’t ya think? ^^

  6. kamikei7 says:

    Episode 6 was by far my favourite episode so far (though the earrings in episode 7 were also good…it was a pretty sweet moment). I think Episode 6 did an amazing job of exploring the subtleties of Kyousuke and Manami’s relationship…I think their relationship really transcends being “lovers” or “friends” and they really are “family”, which is just the sweetest thing ever.
    That, and Grandpa FTW.

    • kamikei7 says:

      Btw, anyone else really enjoy the BGM when Kyousuke and Manami were having that talk about dating? 😀

      • Tofu says:

        YESS!!! The BGM suited the mood so good man~ x3

        Shame if Kyousuke and Manami continue to be just friends, hopefully they will be together cause I’m sure everyone would agree that they are meant for each other ^^ so sweet those two

        And does anyone else think that the little bro with no hair reminds you of a rock? Cause whenever I think of him, I always end up with a rock in my mind…not sure why…

        (I’m not being mean or anything guys)

        • Dan-go says:

          i dunno…they’re so perfect but i have this feeling that this might actually turn incestuous….
