Waiting on Wednesday (May 16)

I have to admit, this is a guilty-pleasure style Waiting on Wednesday. This time, a light novel that recently had an anime adaptation: A Sister’s All You Need, by Yomi Hirasaka (Author) and Kantoku (Artist). The Japanese title is Imouto sae Ireba Ii. I still don’t have watched the anime yet, as I’m waiting for a BD release, but I usually enjoy stories about authors, artists or about people in the anime industry, so I guess this one is for me :)

As always, you can buy or check more info on Amazon.
