First Impressions – Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashiinda ga (Recently, my sister is unusual)

You gon’ get possesed.

spring13-sumairiiWell uhh. Yeah. I already knew the show would turn out somewhat like this, but I sure didn’t expect it to be this naughty. So yeah, it’ll be taking a time-out in the MetaFAP corner for the rest of the season.

 

spring13-highwFirst out of the official gate for 2014! Will ImoCho set a tone for the rest of the shows, or will it be an outlier? Thanks to Sumairii for letting me bust into his party.

 

Belts ‘n Stuff

There’s nothing chaste about the appearance of this chastity belt.

Sumairii \\ Let’s start off with the reception. From what I’ve seen so far, it’s been pretty poor. Lots of people already thumbing their noses at the n-th incestuous anime adaptation (surprisingly this one is from a manga instead of a LN in spite of its long title). Does the show deserve this kind of bad rap? No. More accurately, not yet. And only potentially. The premiere, while heavy on the hanky panky, doesn’t actually immediately suggest the quality of the show in its entirety. There’s potential for the… chastity belt stuff to be developed interestingly going ahead. And no doubt it will be, since it seems to fill up on Mitsuki’s… juices. I’m also curious as to where our resident ghost Hiyori fits in as she very obviously has a thing for Yuuya. Hopefully the details about her will be more engaging than just childhood friend or the likes. Plus, she’s already dead (or is she?), so there’s definitely room for some dramatics about that once our unfortunate sibling duo figure out her identity. Assuming it even relates to them. It sure would suck for her to literally be just a random girl with the hots for big bro Yuuya. And as for Mitsuki herself, I’m looking forward to how her relationship with her newfound brother will change as a result of these absurd events. Which, you know, is pretty much the major selling point of the show. If you don’t count the hanky panky.

Tinkling

Having an Otohime around is the least of her worries.

Highway \\ Well, now, that was an experience. To be honest, that’s as close to hentai as it gets without needing mosaics, and they still needed shadow-kun AND that overlay, and a cutaway to the eroge-style text. Without the censoring, that’d be pretty much the same thing we saw in Yosuga no Sora or Aki Sora (are we sure there isn’t a ‘Sora’ in this show? Well, there is a sister, even if her name is Mitsuki, not Sora…). But I shouldn’t complain too much, it really wasn’t badly done, just rather a surprise. I do think that if the show is going to make a big deal out of a chastity belt, then maybe don’t make a chastity belt that’s so sexy that you have to censor it with a big sticker every time it’s on screen. And then they have it retract, whoa! I guess they need the sticker then! The other thing I found somewhat interesting is that the show spent so much time with Mitsuki in the bathroom. Japanese women are known for being very reticent about anything to do with the bathroom. One of the reasons they developed the Otohime (The Sound Princess) was an attempt to save water, because Japanese women would repeatedly flush the toilet so that noone would hear them going. So it just struck me as interesting that it would be such a big deal in the show.

As for the rest of the show? I found it rather interesting. I like that it’s not all focused on Yuuya, and will hopefully keep that same level of focus on Mitsuki. She is where most of the action is happening, given her body swapping with Hiyori, and the back and forth worked pretty well. I also wonder what they really have to fill up that lock with. I doubt that it’ll be fine with just Hiyori double teaming her for the whole show.

Unfortunately for us viewers, it seems the show is only being aired on TV in the censored variety. Yes that’s right. Even the famed AT-X (man’s best friend) has it censored, which might or might not suggest anything about the degree of naughtiness present behind the shadows and the cutesy logos. As Highway notes though, it is rather off-putting that they have to censor something as central to the plot (assuming there is one) as the chastity belt. Ulterior motives behind wanting to see it in all its glory aside, it’s quite difficult to… appreciate the show’s finer details when all you see is a black gash across the screen (shadow-kun hard at work) or a logo whenever said fine details appear. I will say that the eroge screen is one creative addition though, for what it’s worth.

A rollicking good start to the season, I think. This show was a lot more fun than I thought it would be, and it’ll definitely fit well in MetaFap. It will be interesting to see if *real* Mitsuki starts to fall for her new brother, or will she be the tsun side to Hiyori’s dere side? I think that could get a little boring if it stays that way the whole time, but it did seem like Mitsuki wasn’t completely hating him, just more not really caring. We’ll have to see which direction that goes.

    It makes me wonder if the days of yore had people so thoughtful in the design of those bygone chastity belts. They probably didn’t have the style, that’s for sure.

    I am almost hesitant, but this is just so cute in it’s nautyness. I guess it has to do with the iDOLM@STER, SAO, Working, Vividred character designs, but hanky panky is pretty darn kawaii.

    I can’t say much more about the show, that hasn’t been said here, but I will say it has some great comedy potential.

    And that is one horny ghost…

    • Sumairii says:

      Yeah, you’d think that it’s just a bit rude to pleasure yourself as a sort of housewarming gift immediately after possessing a poor girl.

    • Highway says:

      YOU go be discorporeal for some unnamed amount of time and see what the first thing you do when you have a body again is…

      I do agree with you: It’s cute in its naughtyness. It’s not laying on any heavy overtones just yet, it’s just ‘let’s have some fun!’ We’ll see if it attaches some baggage to it, but I kind of hope it doesn’t do it too heavyhandedly.

        First a smoke, then a ****, then another smoke…

          As one who is not beholden by chemistry or habit to the effects of burning vegetation, your first and third thing are of no interest to me.

    How to put this…

    All the anti-incest people who keep posting anti-incest propaganda, please leave this planet. Then we can concentrate properly on the merits of the show.

    Which sadly to say the least in this case is… um… lacking. From the OP and a review of stop-motion screencaps from somewhere, all I can say is: “I have a bad feeling about this(tm)”. The fact I am having a hard time writing this dissertation doesn’t help. Perhaps a trial tonight of this episode and there will be more commentary.

  3. Foshizzel says:

    Hiyori is gonna getchu~ Indeed!

    Wow just wow! Seriously they should just make a hentai series and get it over with, but this feels like a To-love-ru darkness kind of plot for a random episode aka another one of Lala’s inventions gone bad.

    That said it was kind of funny watching the back and forth body snatching between the ghost and main sister lol

    • akagami says:

      Except that To-Love-Ru’s cast was much more likeable. The male lead is a dunce-cap face-palm material (seriously leave the girl alone, she’s in the god@mn washroom) and that chastity belt is just a weird plot device.

  4. BlackBriar says:

    I didn’t want to believe what you guys said about this show because of how plain looking that header at the post is so I watched the episode and man, was it naughty. Completely NSFW and that girl on girl action… It’s on the borderlines of hentai itself. This would definitely be worthy of MetaFap. My only concern is the lead male Yuuya. He looks like a total bore but I wonder what is Hiyori’s connection to him.

    A bit slow in some areas but I’ll give it a couple of episodes more. It already has my seal of approval on the fanservice.

  5. Di Gi Kazune says:

    Oh my kamisama… It has to be a sign when you can speedwatch a show in 2 minutes. Worse fears realised.

    Let’s put it this way, the production looks average and let’s no longer speak of the plot.

    One preview star, only because of the Wincest factor/theme, otherwise it’d be half.

  6. Karakuri says:

    Well that was… interesting. I don’t know what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn’t a chastity belt or intimate time with a ghost(?).

  7. JPNIgor says:

    My reaction while watching this was…

    “Is there someone behind me? On my sides? Behind my screen?!”

    Definitely NSFW.

  8. MR.KLAC says:

    WHAT the KLAC-ing did i just watch give saw thing yea whole really whole ghost girl doing to step-sister is one thing.

    but those “tights” oh my so SCREWED when it come to restroom time really 3mins to be free yet wait a hour to push the button?!

    indeed either like zangief quick change the channel or laughing like this http://images6.fanpop.com/image/answers/3235000/3235736_1368597000694.16res_299_285.jpg for watching it.
