I don't think Oreimo is for you if you think the first 6 volumes are more or less the same story over and over. Even within those there is substantial character development for Kyousuke and Kirino and I never found it to be repetitive, though volume 5 was really boring.
>>121088380 >>Don't get me wrong, nothing has changed. Even though I did [insert_point by point summary of events that indicate the exact contrary] I still hate my sister and she hates me.
>>So pretty much nothing has changed between us, or I guess maybe a little bit has. But it's still pretty much the same.
Did you not understand that he's in denial? He repeats those lines like a credo because he doesn't want to admit that he might have romantic interest in her. It doesn't negate nor reset the character development, from volume to volume the siblings get closer and spend more time together,
he even admits in volume 2 that he does care for Kirino and doesn't want the progress in their relationship to be lost. You shouldn't take everything he says or thinks literal, it's often dishonest and you have to figure out what is actually going on, which is why I really like the series.
>>121088523 >Did you not understand that he's in denial? Yes, yes. He's conveniently as thick as a rhinoceros' ass, and lacks the ability to have basic cognitive skills.
As far as him struggling with the conflict of his feelings and taboo, this is not a feature of his character in any of the volumes beyond circumstantial 'outbursts.' And it conflicts with his character in a basic way. He has no problem with porn, and doesn't really care if he is a failure in life or school. It's against his character to, even within himself, have such an extreme and pronounced case of utter denial.
Like I said, the character development, which does happen, is unacceptably redundant and stagnant over the first 5 volumes.
>He even admits in volume 2 Yes. Notice: volume two. 800 pages ago. There is no reason I should be reading >nothing has changed, everything is exactly the same. Just so that the author can now, undoubtedly, fabricate some bullshit to come up from nowhere to occupy the characters more, and retell the same development that has already happened.
Granted, I'm being extremely caustic, but I've had a long day mate. And it will be another long one tomorrow. Anyway, hopefully I will be pleasantly surprised. I'm wasting my allotted entertainment-time on this crappy website. I need to clear my mind to remain open and clear so that I can optimally experience japanese cartoons. FYI Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet Looks incredible
