Keeping with the familial theme I had with last week’s question, this time we are going to focus on the generation that gets most of the focus when it comes to storytelling. This week’s question being: what are some of you favorite sets of siblings?
They don’t need to just come from anime, so any medium will be accepted here. And just like last week’s question and the one before, if it happens to be a set of siblings you love-to-hate or are just exceptionally horrible, feel free to include them as well.
For my answer I am going to go with the two pairs of siblings that make up the main cast of the quirky and fun romance, Engaged to the Unidentified. Not only do the individual pairings of each set work on their own, but together the four of them play off of each other well making the whole production better. From the surprisingly expressive expressionless Hakuya to his endearingly cute younger sister Mashiro, the whole cast is enjoyable and while I am generally not a fan of the perverted older sister trope, I give it a pass on this one as Benio somehow makes it work.
