There is a rather stunning lack of meaningful response for such an important question, so I will oblige with whatever insights I can.

First and foremost, the #1 most important thing you need as an onii-chan is an intimate understanding of your imouto. Study her habits, thoughts, feelings, and interests, and be sure you can understand how she is likely to behave and think in a given situation. If she's a natural imouto, then this understanding should come quite naturally, as you've spent most of your life watching over her -- you've been a bad onii-chan otherwise. But, if you've just become a brand-new onii-chan, or just decided that you'd like to be a better onii-chan to your imouto, then it's not impossible to make up for lost time -- but you have a lot of work to do. Every imouto is going to require different methods and have different situational needs that the onii-chan is responsible to help with. I can not stress enough how essential this point is to your future as an onii-chan -- it is absolutely essential to everything that follows.

Secondly, you must understand the importance of timing. When the imouto is in a pinch, or having self-doubts, or profoundly uncertain of the rightful course, the admirable onii-chan seems to answer almost out of nowhere, "I am here, and I can help." In anime, it happens so abruptly that the skeptic is bound to conclude that no real onii-chan could possibly have such perfect timing, or maybe they will simply chalk up the seemingly divine timing to good fortune. NAIVE!!!!! Anime is extremely limited in time, and the aspiring onii-chan must understand the undercurrent of knowledge and study behind this breakthrough. I have stressed the importance of understanding your imouto, and this is why: you will notice, after long, when your imouto is having problems, and when she is calling out for her onii-chan to help, based on countless instances of observation and data-gathering. You must understand, when nobody else does, when your imouto needs you. This happens only when a studied and observant onii-chan understands his imouto's tell-tale signs of inner conflict.

We should note, however, that just knowing something is wrong is not enough -- you must have a solution. For that, it is not enough to know your imouto; you must know the world as well. For this, it is essential that you observe the way the world operates -- society, persons, and natural processes. You can be a decent onii-chan if you only know when your imouto is in trouble. However, you can only achieve your imouto's admiration when you are an onii-chan worth admiring, and this requires the skill to relieve your imouto of her burden. By guiding your imouto to a better place, you will have shown her just how valuable you are to her, and her admiration is sure to follow.

There are many other tips and insights that you will notice while undertaking your path to onii-chan greatness, but this is more or less a digest version. If you keep the above in mind, and act well on it, you are practically guaranteed to to be a great onii-chan. However, do not mistake the shortness of the list for ease. Being a good onii-chan takes most people years of practice and study, and only the most dedicated of onii-chans can achieve anything more than mediocrity with a brand new imouto, or an otherwise estranged one.

Finally, as I am only an Aniki by trade, what I have said should be taken with a grain of salt -- I am slightly out of my field here. However, I have studied imouto theory quite thoroughly in my free time, and consider myself fairly well-informed. After all, an Aniki shares many of the same responsibilities as an onii-chan. And if I am to be frank, I hold the -- as of yet unproven, but promising -- theory that both the Aniki and Onii-chan are nothing more nor less than a sub-class of Senpai. An Aniki or Onii-chan occurs at the point when a Senpai gains an intimate knowledge and interest in his Kouhai. However, there are counterpoints to this theory, and I hesitate to discuss them here. Suffice it to say that I think it reasonable that a well-trained and talented Aniki can easily make a good Onii-chan with the right dedication, and vice versa. And with that in mind: Ganbatte, Onii-chan!!

I shall treasure this information like it were my own imouto. Ganbatte to you too, Aniki sama! (I used the wrong honorifics, I know...)
