Hello everyone, it's a Friday. For me, it's another day of work after working at the family business this whole spring break. This week, I was working on the Spring Anime 2014 Trailers Guide and the Anime Vice's Top 20 Manga Series of 2013. It's time to take a little detour and revive this embarrassing project, take some stress off.

You guys and gals can call me weird or perverted. I don't mind. We all have fetishes deep inside.

Past Articles

Why are we covering sibling love, incest or non incest (for non blood related characters)? This winter season of 2014 was pretty awkward. We had two dirty shows that focuses on the forbidden love to little sisters while we had one show dedicated to little brothers. The summaries are from Crunchyroll.

Fetish Friday: Little Sisters

1. Oreimo
Technically, this show wasn't aired during the winter season, but it was the first show I saw that pulled me into this world. Who got me into the show? It's my good friends, Daniel Newton and Kurt. I can't omit this show because of its infamous ending that drove many fans who love the show to hell.
2. Pupa
Plot: Growing up with an abusive father, Utsutsu is highly protective of his younger sister Yume. One day, Yume sees a red butterfly and contracts the strange Pupa virus. She begins to sprout grotesque wings and to indiscriminately attack both animals and humans. Hoping to find a way to stop the advance of the virus, Utsutsu seeks out Maria, a researcher who knows the secret of Pupa. He decides to sacrifice his own body as live bait for the sake of saving Yume.
3. Recently, My Sister is Unusual
Plot: Yuya and Mitsuki have recently become brother and sister because of their parents remarrying. Mitsuki is having a hard time opening up to her new family, but their parents leave for a foreign country right after getting married before that can get any better. As Mitsuki is troubled by her new life living alone with Yuya, a amnesiac ghost girl, Hiyori, appears before her, and she is forced to help her pass on to the next world...

Fetish Fridays: Little Brothers

1. Oneechan ga Kita
Plot: Tomoya’s father remarries to another woman, giving him a stepsister, Ichika. However Ichika is 17-years old and has completely fallen in love with her stepbrother who is only 13!! Families will collide in the most unusual fashion this season, in the new anime short: ONEE-CHAN GA KITA!

Let's go over the differences between how little sisters love are portrayed in Pupa and Recently My Sister Unusual and how are little brothers love portrayed.

Little Sisters

In Pupa and Recently, My Sister is Unusual, it gave off a more sexual vibe. Both shows had some controversial fan service with their scenes. Pupa is all about the little sister eating her brother's flesh. The brother gives his consent. In that one episode, he was on the bed while she was on top. She biting him and saying Onii-chan for the entire episode. The brother was in great pain as he gritted his teeth and bite down the pain. Yeah, it was a terrible series, but damn, I couldn't hold back laughing.

For My Sister is Unusual, it was about the step brother trying to rebuild his family to get back the connection. Yuya's mother died, so his father remarried. He wanted to be a good brother, but Mitsuki who is forced to wear a chastity belt due to Hiyori, a perverted ghost obsessed over Yuya. This drives the wedge between Yuya and Mitsuki. Yuya wants to get closer to Mitsuki while Mitsuki tries to get away from him. It's a like a tug of war.

(I lost my train of thought. Trying to remember the crazy theories that were formed back then. I forgot what I said to my pals in this community)

With these two shows, the little sister fetish comes from the virtues of her being innocent and pure. She needs protection and guidance. With Oreimo, Kyousuke helps Kirino find friends that love her despite her love for eroge. He is willing to sacrifice his image and make himself as a scapegoat in the first season when their father found out Kirino's unhealthy collection. In Pupa, Utsutsu is willing to let his sister treat him as a food source. I remember in No-Rin that one character said it was a form of paternal love. Have to check No-rin again.

Also, others argue it comes from the whole forbidden love thing.

Little Brothers

I only have one example. I can't really based a pattern on this. From my impressions, the show was light hearted comedy. You had three sisters with brothers. All with their own unique relationships. Ichika's love with her step brother was endearing and not so creepy. For the light blue hair siblings, the younger brother hates his older sister. They have a rough relationship. Ichika reminds me of Hiyori from My Sister is Unusual. Both women are quick to jealously when their love interest interacts with another girl.

Let's end this blog. I'm distracting myself from my teammates' project for the spring guide.

In the end, the sibling love is more seen in anime and not much in the states. In the states, (from a non native American citizen) cousin love is more common than sibling love. I could be wrong since I don't watch a lot of TV or movies. It depends on the culture. For my home country, cousin love is seen as okay while in the states, it's looked down.

Hope you enjoy this blog. I know it's crazy. Had to get it out of there.

For a notable instance of incest done believably and in good taste, there is Koi Kaze to consider. Beats the ecchi trappings that recent anime titles milk out of the taboo.

@Dream:

Reading our conversations on Oreimo Discussion, everything just flashes back. That one is definitely an exception. Does the brother have that sense of duty to protect his little sister?

I still have to try that show and Kiss x Sis. I guess my summer experience of 2014 would be Koi Kaze, Kiss x Sis, and Claymore.

@takashichea: The series is more about the older brother's mental conflict over whether he should conform to society's expectations of a proper sibling relationship or be honest with his feelings. It doesn't sugarcoat the issue either to make the decision he makes to be neither right nor wrong, as the series makes the viewer judge for themselves if they would make the same choices he made in his situation.

And I just recalled that this month marks the 10th anniversary of the time that the series first aired in Japan on April 1, 2004.

Been hearing Pupa mentioned a lot. I was going to check out the anime last month but heard it didn't do the manga much justice and I've gotten sidetracked by other anime/manga. Still intend to check it out. I knew it was about 2 close siblings I just didn't know there was incest involved.

@taichokage:

What's your definition? I count anime series that has an incest vibe, but not actual sexual intercourse occurs. I suggest reading the manga for Pupa. I haven't read it, but I trust word on it.

I don't think it has to be intercourse to be considered incestuous either. Also thanks for adding weight to the manga. Pretty much everybody is saying this when I see Pupa mentioned.

@taichokage:

I realized I asked a dumb question. It has been a long day. I still think I'm crazy. What would you think of a mod who blogs about uncomfortable things. Daniel was worried about me when I got too curious for my own good.

Lol, you're not crazy. I'm not bothered by it either. Somebody ought to bring these types of things up. Not everybody has the courage to talk about culturally taboo things. But they make an interesting discussion.
