More about the series
The anime My Stepmom’s Daughter is My Ex is based on the light novel series of the same name, written by Kyosuke Kamishiro and illustrated by Takayaki. The novel was first published on the Kakuyomu website in August 2017.
It was later released in December 2018 under Kadokawa Shoten’s Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko imprint.
The light novel is digitally licensed by the J-Novel Club for English publication in North America. He describes the story as follows:
Ah, high school. What better place to start fresh after a terrible middle school relationship? nope! Unless your ex ends up in the same school as you and is now your step-sibling. What was supposed to be a haven of peace where I could avoid ever seeing her again has become a living nightmare! Everywhere I look I see them – in my house, in my school, in my class. There is no escape! She even claims that she is the older sister. How hell is she! But I won’t lose to them. After all, I am the older brother in this new family situation. Right, we’re a family now. No matter how much we thought we loved each other before, we saw each other’s true colors and realized we weren’t meant to be. Therefore, even if we keep up a buddy-buddy-sibling act for the sake of our parents, things will never be the same again.
