Brothers Conflict (ブラザーズ コンフリクト?), also known as BroCon, is a Japanese novel series created by Atsuko Kanase, written by Takeshi Mizuno and illustrated by Udajo. It has been adapted into two PlayStation Portable video games by Idea Factory, a yonkoma manga series and an anime television series.[1][2] The 12-episode anime aired between July and September 2013 and is animated by Brain's Base. Funimation has acquired the North American streaming rights for the anime.[3]

Plot[edit]

Ema Hinata is the daughter of the famous adventurer Rintarō Hinata. One day, Ema finds out that her dad is going to remarry with a successful apparel maker named Miwa Asahina. Rather than bothering them, she decides to move in to the Sunrise Residence complex that is owned by Miwa. From there, she discovers that she has 13 step-brothers.

Main characters[edit]

Ema Asahina (Hinata) (朝日奈 絵麻?)[4]
Voiced by: Rina Satō (anime only)
The teenage daughter of the well-known adventurer Rintarou Asahina. She is 16 years old and in her second year of high school. After her father remarries, she moves in with her new step-brothers. She is very good at cooking. Her father's job had always left Ema feeling alone, but now with her new family she feels happy and safe. She has a talking pet squirrel named Juli who is always saying that her new family is a pack of wolves and that she must always be well aware of her surroundings. Juli can only communicate with Ema and (as it is later discovered) Louis, and both Juli and Louis call Ema "Chi". It is later revealed that she is adopted (her real parents had died). This revelation causes a problem for her at first because her so-called father had been keeping it from her for so many years. However, Louis helps her through this with his own experience, and Juli also reassures her of her father's love.
Masaomi Asahina (朝日奈 雅臣?)[4]
Voiced by: Kazuyuki Okitsu
The oldest son of the Asahina family with the age of 31. He is a doctor who is well versed in medicine. However, he is not as competent as he seems, as he faints at the sight of blood. He loves children and shares a special bond with the youngest brother, Wataru.
Ukyo Asahina (朝日奈 右京?)[4]
Voiced by: Daisuke Hirakawa
Second son of the Asahina family aged 29. He is a successful lawyer and acts as the mother figure to the household. He cooks, cleans and helps the others study for school. He has a calm and reliable personality but can also be very talkative.
Kaname Asahina (朝日奈 要?)[4]

Third son of the Asahina family aged 26. He has the charms of a playboy and a womanizing nature, but he is actually a monk.
Hikaru Asahina (朝日奈 光?)[4]
Voiced by: Nobuhiko Okamoto
Fourth son of the Asahina family aged 25. He is a cross-dressing novelist who likes watching his older brothers reactions around Ema.

The fifth son and one of the triplets aged 24. He is a voice actor alongside his identical triplet brother Azusa. He is cheeky and pushy, but is hard-working and is passionate about his career.

Voiced by: Ken Takeuchi
The eighth son of the Asahina family with the age of 21. He works as a hairdresser. He is a beautiful and mysterious man, always looking up at the clouds.

It is later revealed in the game and anime that he is adopted, and he is the one who helps Ema after she finds out she is adopted as well.

Voiced by: Daisuke Ono
The ninth son of the Asahina family who just turns 20 in episode 2. He is a college sophomore and is very athletic, being on the basketball team. He has no knowledge about girls, so he doesn't know how to deal with them. As a result, he gets tense when around Ema. He asks Ema out in episode 5.

Voiced by: Daisuke Namikawa
The tenth son of the Asahina family aged 18. He is a high-school senior and is known for having a prince-like behavior. He is very popular, even well known in other high schools.

Voiced by: Yoshimasa Hosoya

Voiced by: Yūki Kaji
