Oreimo Ayase Novel Spinoff Slated for August 10 Release
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account for the Oreimo franchise's Kirino Kōsaka character revealed on Sunday that the spinoff novel centering on Ayase is slated to ship on August 10. The novel is titled Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Ayase if Jō. While the announcement did not explicitly reveal how many volumes the new spinoff will have, the labeling of the title suggests two or three volumes for the series (the jō "upper" suffix is usually used in two- or three-part series, with the latter two parts labeled chū "middle," and ge "lower").
The spinoff is based on the Ayase route from the Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Portable PlayStation Portable game, and will feature a revised and expanded version of the scenario that original author Tsukasa Fushimi wrote for the game.
Bandai Namco Games released the Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Portable PlayStation Portable game in 2011. Tsukasa Fushimi and Hiro Kanzaki's original Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (Oreimo) light novel series ran from 2008 to 2013. Sakura Ikeda drew the manga adaptation and the Oreimo: Kuroneko (Ore no Kouhai ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai) spinoff manga that debuted in 2011. The novels inspired a television anime adaptation in 2010 with a second season in 2013.
