Suzuka Nagami, the perfect little sister with good grades and active as student council president, won a light novel award?? Moreover, the story is a ‘romantic lovey-dovey comedy of a brother doting on his little sister’? Even though she is always so strict with me, her real older brother…
On top of that, Suzuka asks me to debut as the light novel author, because she doesn’t know anything about light novels and moe!? The published light novel also ends up becoming a record-breaking bestseller. Beautiful female fans of me (my sister), light novel authors and illustrators start gathering…
Suzuka also says she wants to date someone as part of her research for another novel. Please don’t get me wrong, the sister I like is not the one in front of me but the ’sister’ she created for her novel.

A romantic comedy about the clumsy romance of this brother-sister pair will start airing soon!


This anime is based on a light novel by Seiji Ebisu (story) and Gintaro (art).

Yu Nagami

Voiced by: Tasuku Hatanaka

A 1st-year high school student who is aiming to become an author of light novels. He got really into light novels as a middle-schooler and started writing them himself, but stopped after not finding much success. He is a kind big brother who cares for his little sister but has never experienced that ‘younger sister moe’ feeling himself. He acts as the light novelist ‘Chikai Towano’ in place of his sister Suzuka.
