Izumi writes novels and takes care of his shut in sister (as well as apparently attending school though that seems like a minor point at the moment). His sister turns out to be the illustrator for his novels which he uncovers while watching a live stream.
Okay, this one should not be appealing to me at all. So far the characters are pretty stock standard (with the younger sister even insulting her brother by calling him a light novel protagonist) and the plot is pretty basic. That said, as generic as a lot of this is, it was kind of charming in a strange way. I want to know what happened to their parents, why she was brought into the family, how they work together now that they know each other’s pen names, etc. So for a first episode it got me interested enough to continue. Whether I last a season will really depend on whether the charm wears thin.
