Oreimo, short for ‘My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute’ on the surface presents itself as a seemingly typical slice-of-life setup centred around Kyousuke Kousaka and his younger sister Kirino.
Behind Kyousuke’s younger sister Kirino’s perfect face of presenting herself as a straight A+ student and acing everything she aims to accomplish lies an avid consumer of adult-oriented video games and anime, often referred to as ‘eroge’ especially with brother-sister dynamics.
Oreimo challenges the societal taboos associated with sibling romance.
