Just wondering why you think it would help the show more than hurt it? I'm sure most people don't want them to have a blood relation and a romantic relationship (though there are a few exceptions). And yes you are right there probably are other shows with incest on T.V. but they are very uncommon I am sure and if indeed the PS2 version did cut it out and the anime seems to be most likely based on the PS2 version then they most likely won't be blood related. You do have a point though with the channel thing. It probably does really depend on what channel they show it on. On a completely side note I would want to play a translated version of the PS2 game.


Because people tend to like taboos. Kinda like what the other guy said of not wanting something generic. Alot of shows have a good stories but they also tend to "sell" something else on the side. I really don't want to give examples because... alot of people would argue about it if it was a show they liked. You know the shows... that have incest, ecchi, child-adult relationships, and yaoi (ewww). Even if they do have a good story... do you think they would be as popular if they didn't have that stuff? Why are subliminal messages usually related to immorality? Because it catches your attention sub-consciencely. (You don't have to believe the 2 sentences before this statement if you don't want to) Truth is Immorality and Sex sells. Think of all your favorite stories that have ecchi and junk and think of it w/o those traits, would you still like it as much? But still... it hasn't happened yet... and most people on this group watch it because they like the story.

That's just my opinion I guess. Well... I guess I could be wrong?

I agree with pretty much everything you said. That is true that a lot of people like taboos and that sex and immorality sells. But many people are turned off by it as well. It really does depend on the target audience. And those stories that do have such things are popular because of those things, yes, but don't people who like it, usually like it because of those things, and I don't think most people who watch Akane-iro watch it because Junichi and Minato are/might be related, I think like you said most people watch this because they like the story and the comedy and characters and what not. I actually would prefer them without the ecchi. On a side note a bird just made a weird nose right outside my window and I got scared haha.

Related by blood? No. Why else would Minato tease about it in the bath scene? Maybe to tease Yuuhi? Probably not. I'm assuming she knows she's not blood related too.

I'm just basing all of this on assumption, of course, since I never played the game.

Haha. It was a really weird sound and I thought it was coming from inside my house. Plus I had the lights off and it was all dark except for my laptop so that didn't make it any better.

In the PS2 game, they made them not blood related because the PS2 version is the non-hentai version of Akane-iro. If in the PS2 game they were blood related, it would be incest and incest is often considered a form of hentai. (Just generally, nothing offencive to all of you Minato fans.) But in the PC game, Im pretty sure they are blood related. And in one of the earlier episodes, Minato even said that they were related by blood.

I hope they aren't blood-related. But it would just be stupid if they were. Because they would be building up all this tension and making people guess if they were or not, and then they would just end up saying they were. That just seems a little boring. Regardless of if he ends up with Yuuhi or not, it would still be a more exciting story if they weren't related by blood.

.and i can get why some people would lthink yes like the whole forbidden love thing
but seriously even i would think of it as forbidden love even if they werent blood related due to the way society thinks...cause seriously wouldnt you think that way too if you had an adopted sister?

but if put society in a box and close it up for a moment

it doesnt matter to me if they are or are not

cause seriously the idea of incest being wrong
is in essence the same as homosexuality being wrong

so i think this anime is gonna be great regardless of incest or not

We can't say yes, either no because it a game based anime so ending can be happen many ways. So wait until the last episode! I hope she's not blood related! Wiki is not always correct.

Actually JohnyBeGood, I think you've got it mixed up. First of all, there is no way we could know if they are or if they are not. To me, and I'm not just saying this because I'm a Minato fan, it seems like they are not related. Why would they build up all this tension just to end up saying "Oh, so we are related? I guess I'll be with Yuuhi, then." Even if that did happen, he wouldn't just stop liking her. So the fact is that nobody other than the makers of this anime know the answer to that question. So the people saying "They aren't blood related!!" Are (in my opinion the right people) the ones that think it seems like they aren't blood related. And the people saying "Omg they are blood related!" are either just saying that because they think they're just automatically right, or because they're trying as hard as they can to make it seem like he'll end up with Yuuhi. Which, *ahem*, he won't. To me it really seems like they aren't blood-related and are gonna end up together. So yea, people can state their OPINIONS on whether they are or not, but you can't go around saying "THEY ARE!!!" or "THEY'RE NOT!!!" because you don't really know. And if you do go around saying if they are or not and thinking you're right, and then it turns out the other way, you're gonna feel like an idiot.

One last thing, he soooooooooo loves Minato! Yuuhi's just a stupid obstacle who's trying to ruin everything but, in the end, will not get Junichi.

TEAM MINATO!!!!!!!!!!!


AGREED!

I would still believe that they are. just because there are signs that tells us they arent doesnt mean that they're not blood related. maybe you'd think that they arent because of the fact that minato is junichi's dream girl. could be that. anywho! i believe that they are related and my would support my answer all the way till the end of the episode or till they REALLY specify that they arent. cheerio!

They are related by blood in the PC game (played it).

I don't think that's a good enough reason to change the fact that they're related, I mean think of Kana imouto (idk if you've heard of this game), they didn't change the fact that they were related in any version of the game so I don't think incest counts as a form of hentai - since of course they won't include any sex in the anime haha.
