It gives me a threesome feelings, which I dont really like since Im a monogamous kind of person but it turns out the uke knows who he loves all along (and he chose the one I like too). So here the twins and another love rival but its not annoying. Actually all the characters are likable and everyone has happy endings.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Nao has always showered his twin younger brothers, Tetsuo and Asuma, with much tender loving care since they were very young. Now in high school, he is finding such investments can backfire as the two compete fiercely to win more than mere brotherly affections from him. To add fuel to the fire, Nao’s best friend, Saku, is declaring his love for him as well. Who will come on top in this winner takes all situation?
There are many things about “I’m the Big Brother” which I find truly appealing. The art is lovely – the boys are so cute & pleasant to look at. The love competition lends itself to many amusing situations that are entertaining. The story is also decent – I wasn’t really able to predict who Nao will choose until near the end chapter of the main story. I love the “all well that ends well” ending too as all my favorite characters find their happy endings. The only hindrance I occasionally come across while reading this manga is the transition of the stories that seems a little choppy at times. The localization effort is highly commendable – meticulous translation, accurate editing and fastidious editing. However, I do feel that a more nuanced and concise localization of each character’s dialogues would have made the reading more interesting and boosted the humor and/or poignancy in some events.
I adore the second story “In the Soup” although it is very short. It is a sweet tale of how a simple cup of soup could be the start of a promising friendship between the placid Wataru who had disallowed himself from feeling lonely for so long and the good looking stranger he rescued from hunger.
I definitely find myself liking this book better the second time I read it. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is looking for an enjoyable light and innocuous yaoi read about “brotherly love”. One extra story at the end about Nao, his brother and their father is particularly hilarious. Please do check this book out when you are in the mood for cheerful stories of love and friendship among some very cute high school and college boys – the happy endings will put a smile on your lips for the rest of the day.
Disclosure: I would like to thank Digital Manga Publishing and Sinister Hands for providing me a complimentary rental of "I’m the Big Brother" for this review.
