Yori Yuki has loved his twin sister ever since he can remember. While his parents brushed it off as a child’s fantasy, he always knew it was true love; but because it is incest, taboo, a forbidden love, he did his best to eliminate those feelings. 15 years have gone by and his feelings never wavered; in fact, they have grown stronger. He’s watched his sister Iku grow up and become a beautiful woman, and now, he can no longer contain his feelings – Yori confesses. Yet even if Iku reciprocates his feelings, that doesn’t change the fact that they’re brother and sister. Can forbidden love last?

A mix of drama, romance and incest, all within a short 45 minutes. Being as short as this, a touchy theme like this has little time to develop tastefully, which is my main problem with Boku wa Imouto ni Koi wo Suru, lack of taste. The anime tells the story of Yori, a high-school boy with feelings for his sister. As you’d expect from a forbidden-love show that tries to take itself seriously, feelings of guilt and anxiety fill the main character and he tries to find ways to drift away from her. As much as I like this format if it’s done well (like the case in Koi Kaze), it just felt incredibly rushed and reaching in the realms of melodrama in this short adaption of a 10-volume manga series. In the short duration of 45 minutes, the main character goes from self-hatred (which he takes out on his sister) to acceptance, has sex twice (and attempts a third time, horribly) and lacks tact more than a few times. Despite all this loathing towards the OVA, it’s hardly unwatchable if you don’t have too much of a bias against incest and stupidity. The drama, while not being good by any means, isn’t really bad either, the main character does show care for those around him, and the ending is more-or-less satisfying. It’s hardly something I’d recommend to people (even to fans of forbidden-love shows), but if you were planning to watch it anyway, granted you lower your sense of morality a bit while watching this, don’t let it stop you from doing so. Oh, and the ending song is the most horribly out-of-place song I’ve heard in a long time. Imagine a quiet, “let-it-sink-in” type of ending, and then press play on the video below.
