It is now official that the series will start airing on 10 October 2018, 22:00 (JST). Furthermore, we are being introduced to three new characters. Of course, the cast for these characters has also been revealed and they have even sent a comment!
The three new characters are Mai Himuro voiced by Yui Ogura, Ahegao W Peace Sensei voiced by Chinatsu Akasaki, and Sakura Minazuki voiced by Kazusa Aranami. Also, take a look at each character’s illustration below!
This anime is based on a light novel by Seiji Ebisu (story) and Gintaro (art) and tells the story of Yu Nagami and his younger sister Suzuka. His sister is an honor student with good grades and president of the student council. She has even written a light novel and won a prize with it, which is how the trouble starts for Yu…
Mai is Yu’s classmate. What he doesn’t know is that she is the light novel author he admires so much. She is a beautiful girl and very proud. She loves the writing of the novelist Chikai Towano and is a big fan. She tries to meet Yu in non-professional circumstances because she hopes to be able to research the secret behind his talent.
Comment from Yui Ogura
‘I think all the characters are unique and lovely, each one on their own. I went to the audition thinking that I wanted to voice Mai, so when it got decided I was really happy. The cast is working all together on these recordings so please look forward to the broadcasting!’
Ahegao W Peace Sensei
An illustrator from the UK who is in charge of making illustrations for the Chikai Towano novels. She is a beauty with big breasts, who looks good with glasses on and is cheerful. She loves erotic things and uses every chance she gets to make sexual references. Her favorite genres are things that include sadism. Her pen name refers to an erotic facial expression commonly seen in pornographic manga.
Comment from Chinatsu Akasaki
‘When I heard the character’s name for the first time during the audition, I wondered what kind of character in the world she would have… And it’s a lovely illustrator who is straightforward with her hobbies. I will work hard to express her simple cuteness, so please look forward to it!’
Sakura is a newly-debuted voice actress who faces high expectations because she got cast as the main character right away for her first role. She can voice act and perform well and at a first glance, she doesn’t seem to have any weak spots. She is a big fan of Chikai Towano and it’s her dream to voice an imouto character. Even though she is older than Yu, she likes to pretend to be his imouto and calls him ‘Onii-chan’.
Comment from Kazusa Aranami
‘First, I want to say that Sakura left a deep impression during the audition! She was so beautiful it was almost painful and my heart was hurting from the beauty, so I wanted to voice her so desperately! That’s why I was super happy when I heard that I got chosen. While reading the light novel it is based on I got the impression that liking someone comes in many different forms. I hope that I’ll be able to express Sakura’s way of liking someone well. Please support me!’

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!
