  • Still Waters Run Deep.
    Much like Genshiken, Oreimo explores the Otaku experience. So far, having watched the first four episodes, I'm endeared to it. Kirino Kousaka is a14yo student that by all appearances enjoys the benefits of being one of the popular girls. She excels academically and socially. She also works part-time as a fashion model. Her friends then are all from within that social circle. But she's hiding a ...

  • Oreimo is a MUST SEE
    This is a really wonderful anime! The personality of the characters are great. The plot is very interesting always making me want to know whats going to happen next. I really like the art. This series is also very funny.

  • It is worth watching.
    Oreimo, while I can safely say that I enjoyed watching this show, I found myself asking why the protagonist would ever put up with his sister’s constant abuse. And I do mean A.B.U.S.E., the slightest annoyance seems to send this girl into a psychopathic rage. But what does the main character do? He complies with all her demands, even at the cost of his own reputation with his friends and family. ...

  • Pretty Absorbing....
    From always watching action anime, I thought I wouldn't be able to transition into this anime. But then I just got in touch with my feminine side and liked it. The fact that this series appealed to me, a male otaku who likes anime, is outstanding. This series made me feel better about my hobbies. The animation was pretty good as well.

    Smart, Funny and Cowardly
    This title came so close to greatness, but fell just short. The characters are well-written, but not explored. Social issues are held up, but not examined. Bonds are tested, but nothing changes. The humor and dialogue kept me coming back (I watched it in large chunks over three days). I just see something that could, and should, be more.

  • Awesome characters and sooo funny!
    I had a great time watching all 12 episodes of this anime. The animations and sound effects were great which made it more enjoyable. The characters are very unique and made me feel as if these characters were real. But one Con i would have to give is that I don't believe they ever addressed an actual main conflict other than Kirino revealing her secret to some people. I am aware of the second ...

    Season 1 - Ups and downs, lots of repetition
    I'm not great at writing reviews so I hope organizing it based on some of the areas most people care about in an anime is somewhat helpful to some.

    Story: 8/10 - Overall it's an interesting story. I like that they have a lot of mirroring in the presented relationships with what the characters are watching/playing in their anime and games. The characters (for the most part) are slow to ...

    Refreshingly Honest and Funny
    I have to admit, when you explain the premise of this anime it sounds really dirty. "it's about a guy who finds out his little sister is into erotic games/manga about little sisters and..." You'll probably get about that far before Chris Hansen shows up and asks you to have a seat. But there is a surprising good story here about the acceptance of certain lifestyles and hobbies. The show raises ...

    My review can't be this cute
    I've walked a long path of anime watching, not more than others, but still, I'm fairly experienced as an anime fan, and this show had some good points, but it also had some weaknesses.

    The good:
    The music is pretty nice, and I rarely skipped the opening or ending sequences. The character design is clean, just the way I like it, and has plenty of moe for anyone who likes it.

    The ...

    A touching story and funny throughout the series.
    My first thoughts about this anime, was fear of this being a terrible incest like Kiss x Sis. At least till after watching Podtaku on youtube I found it amusing and decided to watch the show, it gets right into the plot quite quickly and the brother finds himself entering the otaku world we all live in. I find myself reminiscing the times when I started watching Anime and becoming an otaku and ...
