Chokotto Sister is the siscon anime of the year! Actually, it might be the only siscon anime of the year. So make sure your imouto isn’t in the room (otherwise she’ll say something like “onii-chan no ecchi!), and check out my first impressions!
Kawagoe Haruma is a guy who always wanted a little sister. His mom was pregnant with one, but I guess she lost it. Awww, kanashii! He asked Santa Claus for his mom to get well, plus a little sister. Fast forward a few years to Christmas. Santa (who happens to be a yankee biker chick) finally delivers the goods: an imouto!
At first, Haruma is “WTF?” It doesn’t take him very long to be convinced by the cuteness of his new sis. He then has to go about naming her (“Choco,” like Chocolate?) and buying her girls clothes. Tradgedy strikes, though! Well, she gets lost and he finds her. Then he
proposes to gives her the present that was meant for the hot french girl and Choco gives him a kiss! Aww, how sweet!
This first episode kinda felt to me like that anime, Chobits. You know, with Hideki getting Chii and having to buy her underwear and stuff? Not that the resemblance is a bad thing… Luckily Haruma didn’t have to push anything to turn Choco on…
I’m seriously confused by this anime. It should be either a heartwarming tale of two siblings (like Binbou Shimai Monogatari) or somewhat ecchi (like Magikano). I think it’s trying to be both, yet something tells me that won’t work.
Is Haruma supposed to lust over his sister or go all moe!? Shots like this (+ naked apron!!!)suggest the former while shots like this suggest the latter. What kind of person is this anime catering to?! Either way, I’d find the show pretty enjoyable, but they gotta decide! I think they need to get a blood test done to see if they’re actually related…
The character designs are pretty well done for this anime. All of the characters, even minor ones like the department store clerk, were pretty well drawn. Choco is too too cute. I also like the meganekko who has yet to appear in the anime. The animation was quality, too. No complaints here.
The OP and ED are done by the same artist, Harenchi Punch. I don’t care too much for either. The OP is just too busy and the ED is too techno-y. There’s a cute dance sequence in both, but what can I say, I’ve been spoiled by The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya…
I really like this anime. Choco is really cute, and that’s probably enough by itself to keep me watching. I just wish they’d decide which angle to work. If they try both, I just end up feeling like a pervert watching this anime! And um, I’m not… am I?
