|Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai
Role model brother and his otaku sister.
Story of how a brother (Kousuke) helped his sister (Kirino) in all her life crises, all whilst accepting all her abuses and selfishness. The sister is quite a character, elite in many skills but comes with quite an annoying personality. In comparison, the brother is the average brother with an average girlfriend, but makes some extraordinary efforts to solve his sister's problems. This man shows us how simply fulfilling the role of big brother is really something heroic, and even though it might not be particularly rewarding, he did it because "I am her brother".
The anime is really well drawn, and the opening with the constant variations is definitely catchy. But what really impressed me was Kousuke's personality -- average in every dimension, but takes his role as the big brother very seriously.
Based on the novel series of the same name. The anime is mostly true to the novel, but faster paced and much more digestible. Definitely worth watching again.
