Since my weekly podcast experiment is over, I decided to just do a traditional Anime Digest sharing my brief thoughts about the shows I did not blog about. (Image Source)
Photo Kano Episode 8
While the main character’s blackmailing of Aki gave me a feeling of unease, at least she manages to loosen herself. It seems that she was working hard on becoming the best student in the school in order to reach her dreams of becoming a doctor. At the same time, she lacked any time for hobbies and stuff. While it’s good to over achieve, overdoing it can be bad as well. Aside from the confession, it was interesting to see what made her become interested in diving as it deals with dolphins.
But aside from that, I think this arc was well executed compared to the previous ones.
Ore no Imouto 2 – Episode 8
I thought that Kyousuke dating Ruri would be a blessing, but it’s not. Sure, there were some cute moments such as her cosplay and watching fireworks, but she apparently wants Kyousuke and Kirino to go on a date from the looks of the picture she drawn. After wanting to break up with Kyousuke, it just reinforces the incest and there is no going back. I haven’t read the light novels, so I don’t know what actually happens, but I facepalmed at the ending scene.
While the ending left a bad taste in my mouth, at least Ruri’s younger sisters were enjoyable and I kind of like the names they give to Kyousuke.

Ore no Imouto 2 Episode 8 was a disappointment, so I didn’t vote for it this week. ¶
