Hōzuki-san Chi no Aneki is a brother-sister romantic comedy that follows the daily life of Gorō Hōzuki, a high school boy with an older sister named Haru who is unrelated by blood. Gorō is mortified when the self-centered and lustful Haru plays pranks on him. Igarashi published the four-volume manga in Kadokawa Shoten's Young Ace magazine between 2009-2011. A spinoff series, Hōzuki-san Chi no Aneki: Nano Branch, launched in the 4-Koma Ace magazine in 2011. An anime adaptation of the original manga was announced in 2011, but has yet to air.
