I didn’t think I’d actually complete this anime given its theme and name. The younger sister loving his brother trope is common on in anime, but having the anime from the girls perspective is not something I have come across before. I don’t watch hentai so maybe it’s more common there?

Either way, OniAi is a surprising entertaining anime. The characters are pretty stereotypical of a harem/ecchi anime and many of the situations are the standard ones but they do mesh together well. With the added twist that people aren’t exactly unaware that Akio’s obsession for her brother isn’t exactly normal. Akio is half aware, living in a weird non-ignorance that she refuses to acknowledge she’s not a normal girl.

The boy had everyone likes, and only boy actually named in the entire show, is Akito. Akito is aware of his sister’s perversion but mostly waves it off. Almost too calm in the face of what he has to put up with from all 3/4 girls and then his boss to add to the mix. His twist is fantastic though.

The animation is good and there are considerably less sparkles than some of the animes that Silver Link have made. Maybe they clocked on with this one that story is actually more important.

This anime is ecchi and there was plenty of ecchi moments. A few had me wincing but most were in good humour. A few genuinely had me laughing. Thankfully (and showing remarkably good taste) the ecchi moments were never between the brother and sister. Or rather only ever in her imagination and not explicit.

So I give this anime a silver. It’s entertaining and extremely watchable.
