To the people that don’t know me, nice to meet you. My name is Ebisu Seiji.
To the people that knew me before, I am really happy to meet you again.
Now then, [Ore ga suki nano wa imouto dakedo imouto janai] is a rather fiddly title but how did you feel about it? This work is a story about a sister that can’t be honest with herself and the relationship with her brother that also can’t be honest with himself, in the form of a rabucome.
Hoping that you would read this novel while laughing and thinking[These siblings can’t be helped, huh], I wrote it with all my being and the trouble that came with it.
I do have to thank a lot of people for helping me to publish this work of mine.
My illustrator Gintarou-san brought a lot of the images of my characters that I thought of to life, sometimes cute, sometimes very erotic (that’s very important). Seeing them for the first time made me dumbfounded. When I came back to my senses, almost two hours had passed.
All of the character designs were decided upon in an instant as always, they went through little change to arrive at the state they are now in. That’s why there were almost no denied designs. The small differences were saved separately of course.
My editor Kobayashi-san gave me a lot of support in the early stages of my work like always. I can not thank him enough for patiently listening to me all these times when we were exchanging ideas.
To write this novel about a big brother and little sister came from a rough draft that Kobayashi-san thought of. Please think of it as a novel that I remodeled after a lot of meetings. I would have never been able to write this with just my strength alone, so I will clearly state now.
Lastly, I would like to thank all the other people from the publisher and, most importantly, you, the reader that took this light novel into your hands from the bottom of my heart. Thank you very much.
Now then, I hope that we will meet again someday…..
6th of July, 2016, Ebisu Seiji.
