Real brother is garbage of society.

The real brother can't trust adult anymore, but treats his little sister like shit? Cringe

Little sister for rent. I feel like I need a shower.

Also do they not have grief counselors or CPS in Japan? Maybe a neighborhood committee could evict them for not taking out their trash or mowing their lawn. One look at that house, and the older brother would be charged with neglect and endangerment of a minor.

While “Brother for Rent” has become less fitting, “Rental Onii-chan” (“ใƒฌใƒณใ‚ฟใƒซใŠใซใ„ใกใ‚ƒใ‚“”) is somewhat more ambiguous, and could be applied both to the previous arrangement and to the new one.

This is probably the only manga where a college student could rent a little girl and have be heartwarming and only minimally creepy.

I love how they delve into the "what makes one family" thing. There's the "actual" big brother but he's way too down the toxic hole because of their parents' death, and there's no adult he can trust anymore. And there's the "fake" big brother but he's really kind and treats Kanami like an actual little sister. Or maybe even better than your usual big brother, and like the picture perfect one that many dream of. (Their reasoning could also be as different as their actions though, that's just a theory.)

Personally, I think blood family is important but if they've become too toxic, and no honest communication works, it's better to just distant yourself with them. Not until they decided to change and are working on it, or they don't bring you trauma anymore, it's for the best to just slam that door. I know how much one may yearn for that connection, nevertheless you shouldn't yearn for something that just hurts you.

And this is where the pre-serialized version left off. Next up is some uncharted territory.

We can joke about the FBI all we want, but that last line actually makes me anxious. Her brother might call the cops on him or something if he caught wind of this.

I mean...I want to have a little bit of empathy being human and all but then I re-read the chapter where "the change" happens in him and that feeling just evaporates. Gets replaced by quite the opposite feeling, which in turn gets reinforced with every chapter he appears in.

I get a darker vibe from this story then what seems to be going on. At first I felt the rental brother was using the kid for money, but I'm not so sure anymore. After that, when they were going through his backstory I felt as if he had left something equally as important rather than just not making up with his father.
