(Final) *NSFW* “ImoCho,” Recently, My Sister is Unusual: Episodes 11&12


The fated bathhouse episode! What will Yuuya do? Will he choose his sister or his childhood friend?! FINDOUTNEXTWEEKON
Nope, it’s over. You sickos can relax now. Don’t worry, there are plenty of wincest series out Spring season.

Series Rating: 5/10; Average.

Episode 11

All our characters take a trip to the hotsprings thanks to Hiyori’s magic. Yuuya gets chased down by his aunt and Yukina but he has his own sister as his concern. Neko reveals having much more involvement with Yuuya and his situation.

 

Episode 12

ImoCho concludes still at the hotsprings and Neko challenges Yuuya by asking him if he sees Mitsuki as another woman or strictly as his sister. Neko ends up hypnotizing Yuuya, causing him to become irrationally honest. He confesses his feelings to everyone but never reveals any romantic interest in anyone. After Yuuya admits to Mitsuki that he doesn’t like her chastity belt, Hiyori is able to ascend into the heavenly door, only to reveal a new door that need even more stairs.

 

Discussion

Honestly the these last two episodes really didn’t make much sense. It’s so open ended that it screams for a sequel but I’m not really sure how likely that is. So, Yukina makes it obvious she likes Yuuya, or at least she simply feels compelled to compete against Mitsuki. It also doesn’t really explain Neko’s involvement in the whole ordeal or why she knows everything about Yuuya’s life. For example, mentioning that Yukina is getting too involved? How did she know and why is that even important. We figure out that Yukina could see Hiyori but she says she shrugs it off which seems more like she is avoiding the truth. Sequel or not what an unusual ending.

Final Thoughts

So I actually enjoyed this series. Not in a way where I would recommend it to anyone, but just simply for some guilty pleasures and that it didn’t sicken me to boredom. You can see based on the pictures why I really stuck around also. I can give you some terrible shows, but this isn’t one of them.

 

Overall: 5/10

 

Story – 4/10

Below Average. The story overall was pretty bland. Many of the episodes seemed sporadic and weren’t necessarily interesting and progression wasn’t important. Timeline was a bit unusual with possible plot holes.

 

Characters – 5/10

Average. Mitsuki and Hiyori were definitely interesting especially their relationship with eachother. However, all the other supporting characters including Yuuya were really bland and boring. Everyone fit character tropes that are prevalent in the harem genre but the switched perspective added in elements that were unexpected.

 

Sound/Music – 5/10

Average. OP and ED weren’t bad. None of the BGM was very memorable and many scenes were simply silent with dialogue.

 

Art Style – 3/10

Very lacking. The art style was very reminiscent of IdolMasters but was very generic. Nothing stood out.

 

Animation – 4/10

Below Average. Very simple animation frames, and clearly on a low budget. As far as most anime go, using lots of still frames is a norm and this show really took advantage of it.

 

Originality – 6/10

Above Average; Okay. Honestly, I was expecting something more like OreImo and the original harem perspective was definitely new but it really fell flat with the characters and other lackluster elements.

 

Enjoyability – 6/10.

Above Average; Okay. To be quite frank, I enjoyed this series. There were tons of up and down moments mixed between awkward and unusual scenes to simple but touching family bonding. I don’t think there really was a scene that made me want to just kick the series to the curb. It was meant to be unusual and entertaining and I was well entertained but overall the series wasn’t memorable enough or really hit me in the feels. Mitsuki really stuck out to me and I loved her character. Honestly, if the show lacked its unusual ecchi, I would have dropped it like a hot tub of shit.
