The Series That Took the World by Storm
Adapted from the light novel series of the same name, the first time Oreimo hit Japanese airwaves, it was an instant success. One of the few anime to dive into the realm of Japanese Otaku and the only series that so faithfully portraits a relationship between siblings at the most honest level, this series is by far one of my personal favorites. It's the unique story and again the relationship between the characters that sells this series in a very similar manner to Disney's Frozen.
Kyosuke Kosaka, 17, has not gotten along with his little sister, Kirino, 14, in several years. For as long as he can remember, Kirino ignores his existence entirely and at most, glares at him with stern eyes at his passing words to her. After accidentally bumping into her, he finds a strange anime DVD in the entrance way. To his surprise, it turns out to be a eroge (erotic video game), and while attempting to figure out the owner, he discovers it belongs to his little sister. Kirino is beautiful, popular, a track star, a honor student, and a model to boot; her reputation would be destroyed if her dark otaku secret were to be revealed. Kyosuke, however, hands it back to her and promises not to make fun of her. At Kirino's request he agrees to help her with "life counseling," to help his sister to reconcile her personal life with her secret hobbies, while restoring their broken relationship and coming to terms with their true feelings for each other.
This is the second season of the series, and is in fact the conclusion as well. This half focuses more on their relationship and Kirino coming to terms with her past and accepting the present to building the future. A lot happens in season 2 and there are a lot of surprise outcomes that you'll have to watch for yourself, I refuse to spoil the plot. When season 1 LE first came to RightStuf, it sold out in 30 days, which left resellers offering the product for hundreds of dollars above market price and a long 6 month wait for a standard reprint.
This set is a DVD only set, original Japanese language, English subtitles. Just like with season 1, due to licensing and reverse importing, in time season 2 will be offered in blu ray; however the price will be similar to the Japanese market prices, ($300). This set contains all 13 aired episodes and 3 original net animations that act as the "true route" ending for the series. Extras include gallery postcards of the ending credits, posters, and decorative slipcase packaging.

Best show ever, but...
Be wary of that the DVDs is in NTSC and can't be shown on all players in Europe :(
