I like the way Kiss x Sis is selling its material. Keeps the manga selling while simultaneously receiving an anime adaptation on an ongoing basis. It also allows for proper spacing of material as well as more faithful adaptations.
Maybe other titles should start learning from this rather than forcing a full 13 episode adaptation in one go.

Better the OVAs than nothing, but it's a long wait between each one, just like Seitokai Yakuindomo. Personally I'd rather have them collected together to form a TV show or at least released in sets rather one short episode at a time. Manga readers may find it more satisfying too since a collected set may be useful as a refresher than having recent chapters animated as they come.

Yeah, I agree with this. Its tough to tell any kind of real story if theres such a break inbetween them since you'll forget the details... I'd much rather have 13 episodes all in a 3 month period as well. Because of the format they've gone with, I've kinda just lost interest in keeping up with them.

I bet Zac has already pre-ordered 5 copies

He's planning to give three of them away as Christmas gifts to family members

You guys do know that they already have a 13 part anime series also right?

Story? read the manga, its attached! Now enjoy these step siblings getting each other off. It's animated and has sound- can't get that from the manga.

There are nine of them. I think their strategy is working out fine.
