Personally, I'm indifferent to it. My brother likes watching anime with me but says that the psuedo incest gets him

I generally have little issue with it but I wouldn't say that it really adds anything specific so *shrug*

In the case of Citrus, of course, it's a part of the storyline and character development so it can't really just be removed without changing a significant portion of what goes on.

Since neither is actually blood related to each other in any way, they are effectively just a pair of strangers living in the same apartment. In 3 more years they could be regular roommates no one would give a second glance to. If a person is okay with any other high school couple making out, then this should not be any different.

Soooo...do not care?

What was the anime where someone said something like "This was written by people without siblings."?

Incest is the purest form of love!

People say this as a general comment on little sister fetish shows I think.

As for Citrus, I don't really have a problem with it because they're not blood related, and they weren't raised as siblings. The step-sisters thing is just a way to get them to live under the same roof, so the romantic tension can be ratcheted up.

I think it would be a bit more of a discussion if they had been raised as siblings, but literally the first time they even the other exists and meet is in the first episode, so it really isn't any kind of incest. There is no genetic concerns, there is no nurture concerns.

Your brother's reaction is probably more concerning.

I'm genuinely curious as to why this would bother a person. I'd understand more if they were at least raised as siblings but they literally just met at the start of the series.

Personally, I prefer only the purest incest among blood related brother and sister. All this step-sister yuri "incest" is some vanilla tier shit.

Couldn't put it better myself. A lot of authors are turned on by the idea of incest but too afraid of their own fetish to write the real thing in their stories despite the fact that they're fictional and have no connection to reality, so they compromise with themselves (or potentially their audience) and you end up seeing floods of these step-sibling romances. The same applies for the audience who consumes them as well- they like the whole "so wrong but so right" appeal of incest, but it still frightens them so they seek out step sibling stuff so they can still use the excuse that they're not blood related to reconcile it with themselves.

I never saw this as incest nor is anything wrong with it.

There is no blood so I personally don't see it as incest and it seems to have become more accepted/common.
Even kids cartoons have mentioned people dating when their parents married but they had no blood relation.

Also for example The Flash has Barry and Iris engaged and he is basicially her adopted brother.
This is pure vanilla.

A few years ago I was so confused why fans of the show Dexter got disgusted when it turned his adopted sister was in love with him.
If they are raised together there is reasonable logic as to why feelings would develop.

However most series to seem to cop out and go with step sibling or cousins.

Ingeneral I don't see anything really wrong with blood related brother/sister if they are both adults and into it as long as they don't produce children from their relationship.

In general I don't care. Most stories it feels like just a tacked on afterthought to appeal to one more crowd, sort of like the token loli character present in so many stories.

In Citrus it seems to be an integral part of the plot so I'm fine with it I guess (note: I'm not actually watching Citrus, too much anime on the watchlist already, too little time in a day)

If we want to talk about "blood-related or not, the notion is weirding me out" I have two words for you: Usagi. Drop.

I remember the first sort of pseudo incest i read was marmalade boy. The incest in citrus is basically the same, and still creeps me out. Guess I'm too vanilla

since it's not taboo to be in incest relationships in Japan... for me, naw I'm good. I tend to immediately lose interest in something that has this and it always causes a lower rating to begin to arrive.
