A Sister Inside: Ranking at 9

It is a ranking of characters from Nakaimo / Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru / WHO IS IMOUTO. MAL has a picture index to help.

  1. Mr. X: Every line out of her mouth is gold, and it’s not just over-the-top ludicrous gold, but sagely advices that I will not take with a straight face.
  2. Kurumi Kashiki: Even if she’s a 3-liner, there’s this earnest campy/healthy vibe to her that I really enjoy. The straightfaced service lines round out a wholly appropriate character in an inappropriate anime (to say the least).
  3. Choux Creme: Beside her profiterole, Tsuruma is the funniest to make fun of. If there’s a real knock against her, it would be how dark the area under her skirt is.
  4. Miyabi: Perfect combination with Choux Creme.
  5. Kotori-sensei: Kind of like Kashiki, but cheekier and even more wholesome. Loli factor is played for shock, and isn’t, at the same time.
  6. Mei: I like her enterprising spirit and the degree of her cunning, but she is a non-factor in the end.
  7. Seri-san: Ayako Doctrine. And she’s hiding something.
  8. Yuzurina: I’m immune to the Ogura. Sort of.
  9. VP Rinka: She’s attractive when she wants to be, but otherwise a little boring.
  10. Araya: Laugh some more, Norse Code Laughter
  11. President Mana: Crazy and a little ditzy but not enough development!
  12. Kanako Mikadono: Hisakawa Aya character eeeeeh
  13. Shiga: Hey it’s MAKO.

I expect this list to change compared to at end of series. Because Kurumi Kashinoki Can’t Be My #2 Imouto Character.

This show is so outrageously scripted, it gives all other comedies this season a good run for their money. And we’re talking about a strong season with Joshiraku and Jintai in it.

    The answer as who is Imouto is obvious, I think. Rinka’s eyebrows are the closest of the girls to match those of our protagonist. Ergo, they are related. It’s kinda like a visual DNA test. Logical, eh??? Plus she’s is, indeed, being underplayed. We’ll see if this is because things catch up later when she is revealed.

    Kurumi is clearly BEST GIRL by a huge margin. She’s fantastic in every moment of her unfortunately all too brief DEBAN.

    I by and large agree with your ranking, though Yuzurina would need to go up after CREAM PUFFS but before Miyabi
