Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Although he was never close to her in the past, high schooler Kyosuke Kosaka is suddenly covering for his beautiful, brainy, and popular younger sister Kirino’s secret life as an otaku obsessed with a collection of little slar younger sister Kirino’s secret life as an otaku obsessed with a collection of little sister-themed erotic anime and games. Volume 2 opens with a tense situation as Kyosuke defends Kirino’s stash in the face of strong opposition from their father. Afterward, he runs interference as a suspicious package arrives for Kirino during a visit from a group of her decidedly non-otaku friends. Despite the cutesy art style and warm-and-fuzzy jacket description, the story’s basic premise may represent a significant cultural barrier to Western audiences. In Japan, Kirino risks social ostracism, at worst, for her interest in underage incest-themed entertainment. In the United States, however, she might be looking at jail time.

Verdict An oddly heartwarming family comedy built around what many readers would consider an extremely uncomfortable topic. Recommended for larger graphic novels collections and devotees of the otaku subculture.—Neil Derksen, Pierce Cty. Lib. Syst., Tacoma
