So why did this get as much infamy as it did this season? I mainly went into watching My Sister is Unusual due to the news that got out of the series getting in trouble with Japanese families over its airing in an early evening timeslot and dipping into incest implications with its ecchi gimmick. Instead, the gimmick chickens out by making the mentioned siblings involved stepsiblings and the center of much of the show's perverted antics being an obnoxious ghost girl named Hiyori wanting to jump into the pants of Mitsuki's step-brother by possessing Mitsuki's body. Pretty much, the title's reputation as a turkey stems entirely on Hiyori's obnoxious behavior and antics that inconvenience things in the already shaky bond between Mitsuki and Yuya. The step-sibling bond had some signs of potential to its premise with Mitsuki adjusting to her new living conditions. But this is largely ignored in favor of Hiyori being her usual horny and obnoxious self. Beyond Hiyori's attempts to seduce Yuya via possessing Mitsuki and the ghost gal having moments of molesting Mitsuki, a number of episodes in the series don't have as much perverted content in comparison to the first two. Even with its milking of the incest implications, nothing really happens in developing character relationships and it has a really bad cop-out ending that leaves the show hanging with its developments with Hiyori. Overall, this series is still quite bad, though its reasons for it are entirely focused on the one character responsible for the title's gimmick and much of its perversion in the form of Hiyori. Avoid it if you aren't a fan of ecchi.

Unevaluated Stretch [series:2835#628]
(One episode watched):

The keyword which leapt to mind as I watched episode one of this series was 'vulgar'. Basically, Mitsuki finds herself fitted with a sort of chastity belt which renders her unable to urinate whenever she pleases. It can only be released for three minutes out of every hour. Somehow, I don't actively hate this show, perhaps since a strange premise always has potential. But I see no sign of any attempt to achieve the full potential of this show, or even a fraction of it. It seems like an excuse for the animation to focus on Mitsuki's crotch region as much as possible and still pretend that this show isn't being targeted to perverts. I think we can guess what the real 'Gates of Heaven' that are being alluded to are, from the viewpoint of a teenage boy. A Ghost borrowing your body now and then, placing you in a sort of out of body experience, might be interesting--but not when the ghost enjoys fondling your genitals and breasts. Clearly, nothing is going to be done with the odd premise of this show other than help teenagers masterbate. No effort has been made to outfit Yuuya with a personality, there is virtually no comedy, and I feel vaguely dirty after watching this show.
