The stage event for Tsukasa Fushimi's Eromanga Sensei novel series at Machi Asobi Vol. 18 revealed on Friday that the Ayase route from the Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Portable PlayStation Portable game is receiving a light novel adaptation. The novel, titled Ore no Ayase ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai, will feature a revised and expanded version of Fushimi's scenario from the game's Ayase Aragaki route. Dependent on fans' reactions, a second similar light novel volume may be released.
The event also revealed an Ayase "interactive AI-raising project" (pictured right) utilizing NTT and Dwango's "Nakiri Shitsumon Ōtō" (Impersonating Question Answer) service. People will submit questions and answer as Ayase, and fans will choose replies they think are appropriate to the character. An AI version of Ayase will develop according to fans' responses.
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.
