There’s “slice of life”, and then there’s “awkward slice of life” anime. I suspect My Stepmom’s Daughter Is My Ex won’t be the former. It all depends, I fear, on whether the show actually turns out to be mainly cringing fan service instead.
The trailer the show has released gives me concerns; it may well be all about the service.
There’s no IMDB listing yet, nor ComiXology slot, but Amazon UK is taking pre-orders on the manga and with a release date of Valentine’s Day. It’ll be published by the J-Novel Club.
Here’s how they describe it;
Ah, high school. Is there any better place to start fresh after a horrible middle school relationship? Nope! Not unless your ex ends up at the same school as you and is now your stepsibling. What was supposed to be a sanctuary of peace where I could avoid ever seeing her again has become a living nightmare! Everywhere I look, I see her—in my house, in my school, in my class. There’s no escape! She even claims that she’s the older sibling. Like hell she is!
But I won’t lose to her. After all, I’m the older brother in this new family situation. That’s right, we’re family now. No matter how much we may have thought we loved each other before, we saw one another’s true colors and realized we weren’t meant for each other. That’s why even though we may keep up a buddy-buddy sibling act for the sake of our parents, things will never go back to the way they used to be.
The voice of Zenitsu Agatsuma in Demon Slayer, Hiro Shimono, has the lead male character in this story. Rina Hidaka, Milim in That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, is the ex.
The show is due out this year.
