If she's a Bungaku Shoujo, then I'm a Bungaku Shounen...

Even I was not born in Japan or in an English-speaking country, I currently have a bunch of projects waiting for me when “Light Novels” are mentioned in my background. Even I’m not diligent in writing for straight hours, I’ll try to do my best to carry out the best in finishing them all.

As of September 26, 2010, I have 8 Original Projects for the Light Novels, and One Fan Fiction Novel(which perhaps been dropped to some circumstances, as far the originality goes…)

Too many, too lazy. . .

Here’s the 2 Active Projects I’m Taking As of That Date

1. Sere•Nade

– the surprising tale of the two successful people in the music industry abroad, as they have some troubles in their hometown because they must finished 3rd year in high school at Shirokuma Gakuen. One of them was a logic-wise pianist, and the other one was a literature-wise singer. How would they managed to handle their school life, especially when their relationship became more intimidating as they lived in a same roof?

2. ambivalence ~In Times of Polyamory~

– a Western-style romantic storyline wherein a lone traveler gets to meet his arch-nemesis, which turns out to the most accursed people outside the city of Pandora. Will he succeed to bring peace to other places surrounding Pandora to what his former colleague had done to them starting from five years ago that was all brought forth by that “Heiress of Thousand Roses”?

What the?! There's more projects?

The Other 7 Inactive Projects (which I can assure you it’s original, except one) are:

1. aya michi

– What will happen if the vocalist of the five members pop band that was popular lately in the Net, was a complete anti-social freak from the province until she meet her only friend, who later establishes a pop culture club? Then she later discovered that other three members, which were hardcore musicians in the past, unexpectedly revealed some of their secrets as their bonding came along the way.

2. Herald:Sin

– It is just an ordinary high-school student, working part-time as a criminologist, getting to face the world’s greatest enemy which is none other than Satan and his minions. Within one year, he must finished all 7 Games in the areas of Nashirogawa, or else the world will be on verge of apocalypse…

3. I Hate Ryuu!

– Basically, most of the influential and popular people in Kobayakawa High School hated Morimoto Ryuuki, the protagonist. They even formed an hate club just for him in aiming to make his two remaining years of high school to be a miserable one. How would he going to surpassed it, as most of the club members there are girls?

4. Konoka no Matsuri

– This story tells about a sudden phenomena, wherein Tatsumi is the only one who could remember her older sister, Konoka, as she became a shrine deity of Uminata Shrine. How did it happened, and how come Tatsumi attracted bad luck to him, meeting unexpected people, since the day she was to be forgotten in this world?

5. Kougeki Library [That’s right, this was based on this blog’s name]

– The librarian in Kougeki Library experienced different supernatural events after he was admitted to be a librarian there three years ago. Eventually, an assistant librarian was employed there, and it was later revealed that she was the daughter of the Youkai King with an near-accurate precognition powers. She envisioned the male lead with her powers one time, and she discovered that he holds the key that will bring forth peace and harmony to the two existing worlds, as well as understanding between them.

6. maple days

– It was autumn, and the protagonist always hung out to a ghost on a distinct park farther from the city. She was also revealed as the Maple Goddess, which can grant wishes if they are pure in heart person and have a good intention to others. Then, one day, he wishes to her to have some friends because she became lonely all of the sudden. But the results were unfavorable, as five of the people was “cursed” and the Maple loses her powers and became a human, because of what he had done. How would he able to manage that in 3 months, wherein he must solved the mystery before the winter season starts?

7. Yosuga no “Haruka” (Damnit, originality! If this isn’t based of a visual novel named ‘Yosuga no Sora’)

– Incest, Wincest, Twincest. Instead of the twin brother, Haru, who would be the narrator, it’s his cute imouto, Sora, whose telling the story within her perspective, with some of the hidden footages never to be seen in the game is going to be unveiled. Of course, as these circumstances grow (including Sora’s change in personality and an expected dull slice-of-life), what should I do about this? The anime would be sooner or later come to our computer’s screen.

I couldn't get to sleep in those several nights with my imaginary imouto, thinking what should I going to do in Yosuga no "Haruka"...


1. I don’t have any brothers or sisters.

2. If I have one, she’s not as cute as Kirino-san.

3. Such existence of this kawaii imouto is nearly impossible in this world.

If, you’re not contented on my reasoning, please watch this video on to see what I meant.

Note: This PV was only in fact appeared at the day when I created this post, actually…

The title of this gorgeous animation was (dare to memorize it):

Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai [俺の妹がこんなに可愛いわけがない]

In English, it is simply “My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute“, as the title of this blog suggested. I’m recommending this video  for those who likes 2D imouto (a Japanese word for “younger sister”) and those anime enthusiast out there who was expecting a good choice next season (Autumn 2010: September-November).


Need some info of this anime? Then our trustee wikians provided us the first-hand information about what you will expect at October 2010. Let’s see…


The Story

Kyousuke Kousaka, a normal seventeen-year-old high school student, hasn’t gotten along with his younger sister, Kirino, in years. For longer than he can remember, Kirino has ignored his comings and goings and looked at him with spurning eyes. It seemed as if the relationship between Kyousuke and his sister, now fourteen, would continue this way forever.

One day, however, Kyousuke finds a DVD case of a magical girl anime entitled Hoshikuzu Witch Merle (Stardust Witch Merle), which had fallen into the entranceway of his house. To Kyousuke’s surprise, inside the case is a hidden adult video game titled Imouto to Koishiyo! (Love with Little Sister!). Kyousuke attempts to fish out the culprit who dropped the case by bringing up the topic of magical girl anime at the family dinner table. All that comes out is a strong negative reaction from his parents, especially his anti-otaku policeman father.

That night, Kirino bursts into Kyousuke’s room and, in perhaps the first conversation she has initiated with him in years, says they “have things to talk about.” Kirino brings Kyousuke to her room and shows him an extensive collection of moe anime and lolicon bishoujo games she has been collecting in secret.

Further updates to be followed in this series sooner and later.

The Characters

~I’m not on the mood right now to write each character’s profile right now; but I swear I know a thing or two about them (especially Kirino), and I will re-edit this part of this post ASAP!

So for now, this group picture from the anime’s main site will cover up this section, with some caption below, before I have some motivation in writing their background in the series.

From left to right: Makishima Saori (The Otaku), Gokou Ruri (a.k.a. Kureneko), Kousaka Kirino (The Imouto-loving Imouto), Tamura Manami (A Megane Childhood Friend), Kousaka Kyousuke (Narrator-san).

Audience: . . . . . .

Haruhiist: . . .

*raise hand*

Haruhiist: ? ? ?

(I do.)

Haruhiist: What? How could you betray…

(Sorry, Haruhi fans. I preferred this now over the legendary SOS Brigade…)

(Anyway, this anime was based on a light novel by Tsukama Fushimi and it has some reputation from the Japanese biggest forum site, 2ch. This currently has 6 volumes in stock, and I’m looking forward to this series success as it really impressed me so far, especially with the anime illustration of Kirino-san! She’s so kawaii and have a reign superiority among the other imoutos I had known so far in my life!)
