My Little Sister Can’t Be An Anime!
Is it just me, or are light novel’s getting anime adaptations just as much or more than Manga and Visual Novels these days?
The light novel series “Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai” (Translated as “My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute!”) by author Tsukasa Fushimi is getting animated.
5 volumes have been published, selling over 920,000 copies, and the 6th volume arrives in bookstores all over Japan on May 10.
According to Anime News Network…
Atsuhiro Iwakami (Kara no Kyoukai – the Garden of sinners, Kannagi, Cencoroll) is producing the anime at Aniplex with publicity producer Yūma Takahashi. The back of the wraparound jacket band on the sixth light novel volume will announce the director, scriptwriter, and animation production studio of the anime.
The official website has launched. Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Hayate the Combat Butler, Zettai Karen Children, Nyan Koi!) is directing off scripts written by Hideyuki Kurata (Kamichu!, Sasameki Koto, Read or Die). Hiroyuki Oda, an illustrator on the original work, is handling the anime character designs, and AIC is producing the animation. The anime will retain the cast from the drama CD released in March.
The story follows a brother who discovers his sister is secretly an Otaku who likes “sister themed eroge”. It’s a comedy if you haven’t guessed already.
There is an ongoing fan translation of the novels online if you do a Google search.
