  • There's a lot of complex feels, here.
    I'm an old anime veteran. Newer stuff, especially slice of life romance for high-schoolers, usually doesn't 'get' to me, certainly not under my skin. Oreimo did. The characters were strong and the humor was engaging. The art was excellent, beautiful at times and the scenarios genuinely funny and overall well-conceived. The ecchi factor and easy tropes were about as well balanced with drama and ...

  • great series with good otaku humor
    i stayed away from this show from a long time because the title was pretty sus (not gonna lie). i gave it a shot one weekend and to my surprise, found myself totally hooked. at first i liked seeing the older brother try to understand his younger sisters secret otaku hobbies, and then helping her make new friends. then i started enjoying the social dynamics of the new circle of friends and getting ...

  • Great series with one of the worst endings ever
    Thoroughly enjoyable until the very end. I don't think I've ever said this before, but for once, I'm glad Crunchyroll doesn't have all the OVA episodes available. Seriously, I find it hard to explain just how much the final episodes of season 2 undo everything the story was building up towards.

    If you're going to watch this show, and aren't bothered by incompletion, I recommend watching ...

  • feels like i missed something
    i may have to buy the dvd set but i think i missed something with this show on the stream, i think the ending to season 1 was way different or missed an episode somewhere and the end of season 2 was very much disappointing, would've liked to see some real closure there but still a good dramatic series. I hope the dvd will be better with the missing in action points of the original show.

  • Great character development
    The animation and characters are well fleshed out. I enjoyed the crecendo of the show that started off as a take on otaku subculture but ended up being a commentary on relationships; related to family and not. Season has the best developments with less fan service, so I highly recommend it!

  • I've never felt this way about a show before...
    As long as you have an open and tolerant mind this show may be the greatest show you will ever see. It is so good to me that I maybe could just dig my grave and jump in happily now... Don't let negative reviews throw you off, watch it for yourself and then you can judge. I guarantee even if you don't like the outcome you will have at least gotten some enjoyment out of it, but I guess it really ...

    I should've listened to the other 1 star reviews.
    If you love to see two seasons of beauty and elegance shattered in three story-ruining OVAs (or, alternatively, never get an ending) then enter at your own peril. I seriously want every minute I spent watching this back, and I wish I could pour clorox on my memories of it.

    How a Terrible Ending can Make the Whole Journey Seem Somewhat Sour
    If there are two things in the anime world that are paramount to me, they are as follows:

    1.) Plot-armor is a terrible and unnecessary thing that cheapens story-lines

    and

    2.) The ending must be satisfactory, at the very least

    Oreimo, for the first 25 episodes across two season, was an absolute joy to watch. Full to the brim with colorful characters and moments of both comedy and ...

    A Nice Meal with a Bitter Aftertaste
    Not including episodes Season 2 13-16 (the OVAs in which you apparently have to seek out yourself, ridiculous) Oreimo has been an arguably enjoyable and good example of a slice of life, romance, drama, comedy, etc with an additional "side-theme" of incest that serves as more of a comedic effect.

    It kind of crashed and burned at the end though, as you may find from the hundreds of ...
