The story follows a hikikomori named Sasami who is unmotivated about even changing clothes or eating. Her brother takes care of her, even though she despises his slave-like nature. Sasami spends her days viewing the outside world via a "Brother Surveillance Tool" on her computer. In the outside world, the three beautiful Yagami sisters and Sasami's brother are in the middle of relationships worthy of a romantic comedy.
So I just watched episode 1 of this show. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it yet. The entire story in episode 1 seemed to come out of left field, though I kind of enjoyed it. It feels like after watching this first episode, that this anime was designed with people like me in mind. That being said, I really don't get it LOL. I loved the art, the character designs, and everything. I just don't understand. I'd like to say that I bet it'll make more sense if I watch it again, or if I wait for a few more episodes, but it probably won't. That being said, I'm interested in seeing what episode 2 has in store.
What the **** am I watching?
And I'm willing to bet they blew all their budget on this episode. Or at least the first few.
This is what I was told:
There's basically a "god" for everything. Amaterasu is pretty much the head god and is sealed inside of a human to keep it in control or something like that. That human is the brother and he doesn't know he has this power. Due to this he has access to the powers of all the "gods". Nothing has ever happened because he never had any desires regarding himself until he was told about Valentines chocolate in which case he got the desire of "I want chocolate for Sasami". The three girls are some sort of higher level god than most gods and basically have to clean up anything the brother does.
Apparently /a/ and some other places have been saying something similar. I'll stick around long enough to see if this is true before dropping it. Hate Haruhi and got no desire to watch this if it is indeed a Haruhi clone despite how much I looked forward to it.
