ec2-18-232-179-37.compute-1.amazonaws.com | ToothyWiki | RecentChanges | Login | Webcomic Younger sister. Slightly ropey view of how the world works. Disturbingly cute. Often portrayed as having one upper canine protruding slightly from the mouth. Generally has no sense of limits or conventions. CategoryAnime?
In this case, yes, referring to the disturbing Mii from PoPoTan. The other characters I can think of who fit the general character concept (Komugi-chan?) aren't "younger sister"s though. The page could perhaps do with renaming, or Vitenka providing some other examples, or both. --AC
The couple I can think of aren't quite as demonic as Mii, but fit most of the above criteria: Hikaru from MagicKnightsRayearth?, Hokuto from TokyoBabylon, Kurai from AngelSanctuary(?) and Meruru / Meryl from Escaflowne. Is that sort of what we were aiming for? --Kazuhiko
Hmm, I don't know. Maybe Meruru is close... I think the concept is closer to Suu (or Sara) from LoveHina, who are just terrifying, if not particularly cute. We'd have to ask Vitenka. I'm sure there must be more... come on, people, think of animes where one of the main characters has a terrifying younger sister. Yuki's little sisters from KareKano don't count!
Why don't Yuki's sisters count? (Tsukino and Kano, I think their names are) - SunKitten
I've just re-read that. Whilst I object to being termed a YoungerKittenSister, the label fits quite well. --Vitenka (Or would, if I had a big brother)
Oh great, now I have the Tarzan and Jane song running through my head >.<
Hikaru is a bit too "goody-goody" and normal, not quite manic or convention-defying enough. Hokuto might be a grown-up version of a YoungerKittenSister, but the phrase evokes a 10-year-old terror to me. I don't know Kurai. But I don't have much of a mental concept of it either, TBH, as much as a combination of two or three anime stereotypes - which is why I suggested renaming the page --AC
I disagree, I think it describes perfectly a particular kind of person. While, yes, the individual components exist sometimes the "Younger sister who acts like a cat" is pretty well established to my mind at least. The red one from NeonGenesisEvangelion is one extreme, Mimi from FLCL is another side, Koala from .. oh heck, where IS she from (LoveHina) - and the mouse girl from DragonHalf sum up some of the other options. I can't think offhand of comic type references, but they seem more common there. It's the "young kid who acts in a way that she'd never get away with if she wasn't so small and cute" thing. --Vitenka (Pine from WebComics/ShawIsland?)
New entry, Hazuki from TsukuyomiMoonPhase?. Possibly the ultimate YoungerKittenSister! Brattish, wears cat-ears, very cute, has two upper canines protruding (well, she is a vampire), no sense of how the world works (been locked up in castle) Also an example of GothicLolita. --Tsunami
