7. Aki-Sora (2009)

‘Aki-Sora’ is a popular taboo love anime. It features nudity very often, which even includes sex. This show is quite similar to ‘Yosuga o Sora’. We have a bunch of horny teenagers who feel lust for each other but try their best to avoid it. Of course, they give in towards the end. Both these shows have a brother-sister taboo relationship as their highlight. Both are quite graphic when it comes to sex and makes you feel as if they are borderline hentai. One of the drawbacks of ‘Aki-Sora’ is that it is too short, which is what most OVAs are. The anime has a runtime of just 21 minutes.

Aki and Sora are siblings. They are really close and take care of each other. When Sora was young, they used to take baths together. Now that Sora is older, he understands that his feelings for his elder sister go beyond normal family ties. He wants her in a different way and often feels lust for her. Her sister gives him mixed signals and might be more welcoming of his feelings than he expects. We see Sora trying to keep himself in control but as the episode progresses, we see his resolve getting weaker. The anime is visually appealing. Be sure to watch the uncensored version.
