Streaming on Crunchyroll
Yuu Nagami is an aspiring light novel author who can’t seem to break into the business. He considers getting in on the little sister craze using his own flawless imouto for inspiration, but it turns out she has a secret that no one could have possibly predicted: she’s been writing light novels of her own!

This is basically a remixed version of Eromanga Sensei except it does anything that some people might have found appealing in that show poorly. The only difference is they aim a little lower and feature censored nudity clearly intended to sell Blurays later. Go read through our #HATEWATCH coverage and anything we said there will apply here tenfold. It’s so uninspired that I was half expecting for the camera to zoom out and the narrator would say “of course, that’s not how things REALLY happen” but no, this is not satire, this is an actual series that someone funded and people buy. Pure trash in the worst way possible.
Marlin’s verdict: #TRASHWATCH
How does anyone not get a job writing in Japan? It makes me wonder just how bad the submissions that don’t get accepted have to be in order to not just get published but not be popular enough to get an anime like this piece of garbage. I’ve said it about every pretender to the rotten throne that’s tried since Eromanga, but if you can’t even bring a fraction of the quality its art had, I don’t even know why you would bother. It’s not cute. It’s not funny. It’s not even erotic! Isn’t the whole point of these pathetic simulations of human behavior to actually be titillating? It can’t even manage to do that. May God have mercy on anyone who thinks this is good for them in any possible way and consign it to the trash-heap of anime history.
