You Must Defeat Sheng Long to Stand a Chance! (of Scoring with your Sister)
The dad in OreImo is my hero.
So yeah, OreImo’s come around full circle. It started off with a normal-by-anime-standards family situation. Sister and brother don’t dig each other and the parents are normal parents and aren’t absent, dead, or piloting giant robots while being absent and dead. But in a mere three episodes the series has thrown all of that out and descended into full-blown incest territory.
Yeah, there’s no way in hell that the brother would go that far out of his way to fuck up his relationship with his father if he was just sticking up for his sister. He had already fixed most of his sister’s problems with his angry rant. The dad was willing to let the sister keep her otaku friends and was willing to ignore her hobby so long as she wasn’t watching shit that wasn’t adult-only porn shit. The dad was making a serious compromise in order to maintain the family’s cohesiveness: let the daughter do her thing so long as she maintained her good standing in school and whatnot. All she has to do is not play games that she shouldn’t even be able to legally buy since she’s way to young to get a hold of them.
Dude, seriously, you just helped change your dad’s mind. Any decent, loving, regular brother would be happy at this point. Yeah, she’ll still have to be secretive about her porn fetish and might have to toss out some of the stuff she already owns, but you made your dad accept her for who she is. Nope, you aren’t happy. You gotta go and claim that her porn shit is yours and divert the heat from her to you. You do realize that you essentially told your dad that you wanna fuck your sister, right? Because any rational human being, when confronted with the fact that their son plays sister-fucking video games in his sister’s room, is going to think that some Jerry Springer-level shit is going down. And any rational human being is going to assume that it isn’t consensual.
Your dad thinks you’re either going to, or already have, forced yourself onto your sister. And then you wonder why he gets pissed off and decks the hell out of you?
The problem is that your actions have exposed you. All of the “thinking this is like a porn game” jokes were one thing, but your actions prove that you really do have a sister fetish. You chose your relationship with your sister over your relationship with your father, and this was after you helped make everything more or less right with everyone. It wasn’t enough that your dad was accepting of most of your sister’s shit. It wasn’t enough that she was able to keep her friends. You had to go all the way, just like how you want to go all the way with your sister. And that little blush and “she can’t be this cute” exclamation at the end of the episode was further proof. You couldn’t just nod, smile, and sigh that she’s finally giving a genuine sign of gratitude. You had to get all flustered and embarrassed, like some spineless dweeb who just had a girl confess to him for the first time.
So yeah, I guess we could call this a realistic depiction of incest or something, but any claims that OreImo is somehow some realistic depiction of sibling relationships are gone for good. Just like I am. The cool bits with the sister hanging out with her otaku buddies aren’t worth the nausea of seeing the brother’s sister fetish blossom and grow.
