Boku no Imouto wa Kanji ga Yomeru Vol1 Ch1-B

Apologies for the delay. To be honest I’m not too interested in this past the first chapter, because nothing else in the volume compares. That doesn’t mean I’m dropping this, but the priority is going down and translations will be slower. It’s a pretty, er, amazing chapter though. Enjoy!

Boku no Imouto wa Kanji ga Yomeru Vol1 Ch1-A

This is terrible light novel and I don’t know how far I’m going to go with this, but have the first half of chapter 1.
Also it would help if someone could come up with a shorter phrase for “non-blood-related little sister” since typing it 50 times a chapter gets annoying.

It’s the 23rd century and moe has taken over the world – little sister moe, to be exact. Cute 2D girls are hailed as gods. One of them is the Prime Minister of Japan. Bishoujo figures from hundreds of years ago are placed in museums as treasures of the past. There’s no such thing as a novel without moe artwork, a cute little sister character, panty shots, and hot springs scenes – because why would there be? Anything that doesn’t contain the spirit of moe is just blasphemy. What’s more, kanji has been completely obliterated from the Japanese language. Who needs those complicated characters when hiragana and katakana are more than enough to convey the grandeur that is moe?

But the protagonist’s little sister can read kanji. And that’s something amazing.
