Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai Specials takes off where the first season ended. It's just a few episodes, mild character development, and essentially more of the same... just without the main female character. The balance of the cast is harmed, as the character growth doesn't make up for the hole left by one less character. While a bit more plot heavy than the first season, this ultimately backfires spectacularly in the Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai Specials. The vision that made the first season so annoyingly fun is harmed. Don't get me wrong, it is still not a real plot by any stretch. But more is less in this case. What I'm really trying to say is that the specials stray away from the formula of the first season, to give a bit more resolution and depth. It's a good idea in theory. In this case I wouldn't go so far as to say that it worked; there are too many similarities for Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai Specials to be more than tampering with a formula that was perfect for what it wanted to do. The artwork remains top notch, and if anything, switching up the outfits was actually a very positive thing here. Unfortunately, it remains true to the tone of the first season, and as such is a worse fit to the writing. This does not take away from the technical excellence, but it does make the overall experience far less enjoyable. I won't go into any more detail than that, as this is just a bonus to the first season. Yet despite my qualms, Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai Specials is an enjoyable view, if nothing surprising.
