Yeah, I get it. They both need help, ultimately the adults are to blame, but he's not without fault either. There are similar cases where older siblings end up taking the responsibility of the parents but they don't become worthless idiots like the older brother in this manga. I still think his way of handling things as the older brother was pretty selfish and pathetic. He failed miserably in protecting the only family member he has left. He's the older sibling, knows his sister can only depend on him because their relatives aren't reliable, so they only have each other, yet he's taking out all his frustration, anger, misery on this poor little girl who's also a victim and suffering from the loss. He's just not mentally strong enough, so this is the result. Rather than put into consideration his sister's safety and well-being first, he prioritizes his own feelings and chooses to let her stick around while he treats her like crap because he can't be bothered to deal with her. If he does't want to take responsibiilty for her, he can give her up, but he's too selfish and doesn't want to go through the legal processes to find a better place for her to live. Yeah, he was a teenager, I'm sure he was overwhelmed with everything, but it's not like he was incapable of doing anything about his sister. It's not like he was 10 and didn't know better. There are organizations, government and CPS agencies that could take his sister and place her into a home, but he rather mope about and be depressed instead. I'm sorry but it's hard to sympathize with someone who neglects and abuse a child, regardless of what they've been through, there is no excuse because the solution is there. People just choose to be selfish.

@manganime yeah,., aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa szo i commented about the brother here, it kinda applies. on one hand he's.,., such a piece of shit. on the other hand he's.., a teenager (from the gakuran, he was in highschool when their parents died), the oldest he can be in the present time is 19. when their parents died he was still a kid (if he isn't still a kid), he shouldn't have been expected to take care of kanami. actual adults should have been taking care of them. he dealt with it wayyyyy poorly but man, both of them needed support that they didn't get o(๏ผ›โ–ณ๏ผ›)o

Poor baby, I feel so bad for her. She's just a kid but mentally stronger than her older brother. That worthless guy, treating his kid sister like that.. Damn, if you can't take care of her then give her to somebody who can, why you gotta make her life even more miserable. ):

Huh. What the hell, bro. Shift your damn attention from that monitor and actually care for your sister if you don't like that rental oniichan. What is her fault anyway, he hits her because he doesn't trust their relatives?

Real brother is a total selfish asshole, doesn't matter if hes mentally ill or whatnot, that doesn't give him an excuse to treat his only sister like this. Pathetic.

Why insist on paying him if it's going to in turn make you doubt whether he really cares about you? Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.

And the brother is going to call the cops? Really.... this do nothing but slap her around brother is going to call the cops on her hanging out with someone else. I mean granted the police might suspect something sexual with the age gap but suspect isn't convict and the evidence of her brother being shit is piled all around the house.

The brother is a major piece of shit, useless, and became really unreliable when It really mattered.
I wonder if he could get reported for neglect, at least find a better guardian for her.
hope he gets his ass kicked before this series ends.
