Which Character Do You Want For a Little Sister?

Which Character Do You Want For a Little Sister?

There are plenty of titles featuring a little sister in the heroine role, some popular examples being Oreimo and The Irregular at Magic High School. Heroines of this kind are referred to as “imouto chara” or “little sister characters” and are loved by many fans, which is why the Japanese anime and manga news portal AnimeAnime thought it would be interesting to ask their readers who they would like to have as their little sister!


The poll was a one-choice question featuring more than 20 characters based on suggestions made on Twitter. It answered by a total of 764 people with a slight male majority, also being mostly young people, as over half of the answers came from teens and a further third from people in their 20s.

Let’s see who were the most popular picks, shall we?

Although it was a close competition, Hikigaya Komachi from My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected ( a.k.a. My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU ), a bright, outgoing third-grade middle schooler and an exact opposite of her anti-social brother Hachiman, took the crown as most wanted little sister.


Following closely behind with only four votes less is Hirasawa Ui from K-On!, the capable, mature and caring sister of Hirasawa Yui. She is very smart and sometimes even tutors her older sister despite being one year below!

Third place belongs to Rem from Re:Zero. Rem idolizes her older twin sister, Ram, but after meeting Subaru, she starts to show a more feminine side as well.


Some interesting facts:
- Four out of the 10 titles are light novels, including the winner My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected.
- Seven of the girls have an older brother, while the remaining three have older sisters.
- Most names on the list are younger sisters of the main character.
- Over half of the top 10 shine in the role of main heroine.
