Besides the long-winded name, the anime is already being plagued with production issues. The staff was going to air the first episode tonight on Niconico Live, and the date was set a few months ago. But it’s not going to happen — the first episode’s early premiere is canceled due to “production issues.”

The anime is being produced by Magia Doraglier, which a studio that was founded last year. Production issues are to be expected from a newly formed studio, but it’s never a good sign when the first episode is having trouble.

Fans of “awkward sibling rom-coms” will have to wait until October 10 to see the first episode. The series follows Suzuka, an academically gifted middle-schooler who wrote a novel about a little sister that dotes on her older brother. Yuu, who is Suzuka’s older brother, falls in love with the little sister character — and is shocked to learn that Suzuka is the creator. After some discussion, Yuu agrees to serve as Suzuka’s proxy during public appearances — but at the cost of going on “dates” so Suzuka can have “research material.”
