*NSFW* “ImoCho,” Recently, My Sister is Unusual: Episodes 3 & 4


Mmmm. Parental guidance unadvised.

Flash Rating: Down; 6/10. 

This series lacks much that makes a good story but makes up for in guilty pleasure. Still entertaining for me.

Episode 3 – “Heavy Hanging Fruit”

The adventures of Yuuya and Mitsuki continues with both of them finally being rescued by Yukina. Yuuya and Mitsuki share their parent’s stories prior to being remarried and we discover a bit about each of their personalities. Hiyori manages to fill up the heart gauge and clear out her dissatisfaction through possession and a feud begins between Hiyori and Yukine.

Episode 4

Mitsuki allows Hiyori to possess her body for the day in order to repay Yuuya for his food and generosity; Hiyori promises to behave more sister-like under Mitsuki’s discretion. After attempting to cook, Hiyori (as Mitsuki) goes shopping with Yuuya to look for ingredients and bonds with Yuuya. Mitsuki discovers that she is locked out from possessing her body back, allowing Hiyori to take advantage of the situation and flirt with Yuuya. Yuuya keeps his distance from Hiyori and confronts her about the way she was “forcing,” herself to be a better sister which allows Mitsuki to take back her body.

Discussion

Starting from episode 3 and Neko from episode 4, Yukina notices Mitsuki and Hiyori as they are both ghosts; Neko even talks directly to Mitsuki in episode 4. Elaborating on the third episode, Yukina doesn’t react when Mitsuki nor Hiyori catch her watching them which is unusual and doesn’t confirm whether she really can see them clearly. What is for sure is that she is aware of their existence and probably their situation.

In one of the scenes at the end of episode 3, Mitsuki mentions that Yukina is acting differently and that she seems very sisterly. Yukina even leans in to mention something about what Mitsuki is, “wearing underneath her clothes,” and It’s pretty safe to assume she is mentioning Mitsuki’s chastity belt; I’m also going to take a wild guess that Yukina is stuck in a similar situation as Mitsuki considering how suddenly she shows up including her sudden change in behavior and ability to see the ghosts. This is probably where most of the conflict is going to arise from because if several girls require seducing Yuuya… well, you get my drift.

One other thing I want to touch on shortly is Mitsuki’s story about her past involving her ex-father. It supports her attitude towards men and why she is so reserved from her family. I’m guessing this is going to be an emotional element to the plot where Mitsuki overcomes her angst in some comedic and ironic way.

Episode 4 includes very little plot development and a huge amount of Hiyori trying to get laid. She does manage to act like a very decent little sister that would lead to some awesome imouto galge routes but this story is about Mitsuki. There is a bit of confusion on Yuuya’s part which is to be expected and what makes me enjoy Yuuya’s character is that he doesn’t act like the usual oblivious idiot like most protagonists that star in harem anime. Yuuya goes that extra step to use good ole Dr. Google to figure out if Mitsuki has a split personality which may play out in the coming episodes.

I think its important to point out that Neko speaks to Mitsuki in her ghost form. Neko has been an unusual character since her introduction when she was warning Yuuya of Mitsuki but who the hell is she and why is she one of the least appealing characters I’ve seen in anime this season (not including the girls from Strike the Blood since it premiered last season)?

Oh my…

 

Predictions

More Yukina and Hiyori action. Based on the preview we get the obvious beach episode early this series. It can’t be an anime if it doesn’t have a beach episode.

    I do not think ImoCho was ever supposed to have an engaging story. Just perverted antics!
