The production company T.O. Entertainment began streaming the first promotional video for the television anime adaptation of Daisuke Suzuki's Onii-chan Dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankei Nai yo ne— (Oniai) light novel series on Monday. The video features the song "Life-ru is Love-ru!!" by the character Akiko Himenokōji (as voiced by Ibuki Kido). The series will premiere in Japan this October.
The story centers around Akito Himenokōji (Ryota Ohsaka), a boy who was separated from his twin sister Akiko six years ago, but they end up living under the same roof together during high school.
Suzuki launched the romantic comedy light novel series in 2010 with illustrations by Gekka Urū. The light novel series has over 430,000 copies in print. Kurō Rokushō launched a manga adaptation in Media Factory's Monthly Comic Alive magazine last year.
Suzuki previously wrote the Goshūshō-sama Ninomiya-kun light novel series that inspired the anime of the same name.
