This morning an official website and Twitter account were created for the upcoming fall 2018 series Ore ga Suki nano wa Imouto dakedo Imouto ja Nai (Roughly translated into What I Like Is My Sister But Not My Sister which should tell you everything that you need to know about this series but I’ll allow you to read on regardless to get a better idea of just how far into the siscon barrel this one delves).
According to the reports, the series will be directed by Hiroyuki Furukawa (Hajimete no Gal) and will also feature character designs from Furukawa as well. The animation will be produced jointly by NAZ (Hamatora, Captain Tsubasa (2018)) and a new studio that was created by Furukawa last September called Magia Doraglier.
A listing on Anime-Planet describes the story thusly:
Suzuka Nagami is a beautiful third-year middle school student who has excellent grades and is the student council president. She wrote a novel about a little sister who dotes on her older brother, and the novel wins a light novel award. After they discuss the matter, Yuu Nagami is the one who debuts as a proxy light novel author instead of Suzuka, under the pen name Chikai Towano.
The anime series adapts the light novel of the same name written by Seiji Ebisu and illustrated by Gintarou. It launched in Japan on August 20th, 2016 and has six volumes out as of this writing.
