My Shitty Anime Ending Can’t Be This Shitty?! 12

Ore no Imouto ga konna ni kawaii wake ga nai

It’s Akira-level big, Kuroneko.

Dere Daddy had to be the best Kousaka family moment in this episode. Mom doing Daddy’s impression came a real close second though.

Dancing nekomimi meido Kuroneko makes EVERYTHING AWWWWRIGHT.

Ore no Imouto ga konna ni kawaii wake ga nai

I’m finally done with this damn show!

Man, I can’t believe how shitty the show ended its TV run. Yeah I know there’s another four more episodes on the Blu-Rays and shit but you’d think they still put in a little effort in trying to end the TV broadcast. 12 minutes of Kirino going out of character and shitty midnight Akiba lining up with 4 minutes of “I’m going to America” drama doesn’t even nearly make for a decent ending even.

Still, all in all, this show did live up to some expectations of drama and moefagging. The biggest legacy of the show is probably Kuroneko, Saori and Ayase, otherwise Kirino’s infamy as bitchdere of the season/year. It had its moments, don’t get me mistaken, but otherwise, most of the gags were quite infuriating to watch mainly because it involves Kyousuke getting hen-pecked by Kirino. Add that to bad pacing, all-over-the-place writing, trying to put in homages and the bleh music, OreImo just barely averaged itself out in the end if only for the animation quality and Kuroneko moments.

I’m interested to see what the Bad End specials are going to be like though. I hope it ends with Kuroneko.

Liked: Some episodes, Kuroneko.
Rewatch: Ehhhhhh? Nah.

P.S. Now this gave me a real good laugh.

    But kuro, the director managed to use some very /unique/ shots that were never utilized before! Like the talking heads through a glass of ice tea, quite innovative over the previous talking heads with cellphones used by several shows this season.
    It must take balls to be able to make use of the music as the director did, and his confidence in the source material really showed.
    Kirino’s acting was something else — it is with great apprehension that I wait to see how the VA handles other lead roles, Mio notwithstanding.
    So, Oreimo, being one of the few shows I’ve ever dropped holds a special place in my heart and mind.

    Manami is the clear cut choice for gf in this show. She can cook, she can clean, and she loves to get down with….sex all the time! (even if she doesn’t, she would for Kyousuke on request).

    Personally, I thought that Kyousuke’s mom was the best character in the show, even though she was in like….4 scenes throughout the entire series.

    Am I the only one who thought it was decent and all?

    Sure, it was decent and that’s about it, but no idea how it can cause RAGE.

    I guess you guys wanted Nice Boat or something. It’s in the air.

    Ironically, I think this show could have been better without imouto…but then where would our “plot” be?
    It seems like I watched this show for everyone but Kirino; Nakamura-aniki, Kuroneko, Ayase-yandere, childhood-friend-Minami, Saori-ojou, tsundere-father (Kirino, take lessons from your dad), and sarcasm-mom. That’s pretty much it.

    So, we have the bad end first. Now onto the good one, Kirino goes far far away… to the country of fire-burn-it-with.

    @Kurogane: You realize the composer for OreImo is the same guy who scored the Haruhi movie, right?

    Seems like he phoned in for this show…

    I love the hint that Kuroneko gave at the end, when she said she would be calling him something other than “nii-san” soon.

    Read the latest novel if you want to know what she does call him, especially if you are a Kuroneko fan. ^_~

    I know you all wanted the Wincest H-route and got disappointed but this is not an eroge adaptation.

    This ending is to ensure media sales plus there is no novel ending yet anyway, hence the open ending. Kanako FTW.

    We should’ve killed Kirino when we had the chance
    Her tsun moments were annoying and infurating, and her dere moments came too little to late to give her any redeeming qualities.

  19. metalsnakezero Said,

    December 22, 2010 @ 9:13 am

    Was this anime bad? Not really. However, Kirino behavior was one of the problems.
    What saved it for me was the side characters.

  20. Nestor Said,

    They could have show some hints for the ‘Going to America’ part but instead they held back any notion of it until now, so it was honestly a ‘wait what how did it come to this’ moment for me….

    Dancing Kuro was awesome though; there should be more of that.

    And I think this series is a ‘rewatch for me’ – All I have to do is skip any scene with Kirino in it :D

    Kuroneko route where?

  22. Liberator Said,

    December 22, 2010 @ 1:23 pm

    I don’t understand all this hate. The series was good, covering most of the contents from the novels. Sure, Kirino’s attitude can be an issue (I read the novels and some of the scene were tough to get through), but isn’t that how a TSUNdere character tends to operates?

  23. ahelo Said,

    December 22, 2010 @ 1:30 pm

    i think she even topped louise as bitchdere of all time.

    They should change the title to “My older brother can’t be this abused and manhandled by a little girl.”

    He’s starting to remind me of MM.

    She isn’t a tsun-dere she’s a bitch-tsun. If you want to see a real tsundere watch NGE or Fate/Night.

    Bad end is bad.

    Only nice piece of this episode except for Kuroneko maid and Kirino father stalking his daughter was that “bend over” action Kirino showed Kyousuke :p

    But one could also read into what the “little sister” told her big brother in game as to Kirino´s true feelings.

    Just being “her big brother” is not something I think would make one do that much as Kyousuke has done troughout the show. But oh well.

    Now we just have to wait for the following 4 episodes to maybe get a better ending.

  31. Nestor Said,

    December 22, 2010 @ 8:55 pm

    …I don’t think NGE has a good example either…

    Anyway, tsundere only works when the ‘dawww’ DERE moments can make us forget the painful TSUN moments. Until now, ZnT’s Loise was the best example on how to NOT be a tsundere; to many whipping, not enough loving.

  32. Yamibakeru Said,

    December 22, 2010 @ 9:17 pm

    I haven’t quite watched half of the series, but from all your remarks about Kirino… I guess she must be a pretty authentic younger sister, lol.

  33. KayDat Said,

    December 22, 2010 @ 10:44 pm

    Dumb show was dumb. No older brother would stand for the amount of crap Kirino dumped on Kyousuke. So many times through out the show, I was “wtf, are you serious”. Manami was okay…hated the put-on high pitched voice, but she became bareable as I watched the show and time went on. Only real saving grace was Kuroneko…now *that* is tsundere done right.

  34. Di Gi Kazune Said,

    December 22, 2010 @ 11:21 pm

    Note the enthusiasm that onii-chan shows for lifecounselling series 2. I don’t understand the hate, I actually like all the characters for who they are. Then again, I don’t get the fuck why people think kanon/air/keyblah2/harutard is good anyway.

  35. thatredsky Said,

    December 23, 2010 @ 12:12 am

    I think Kyousuke’s amazing for withstanding all that crap from Kirino. Makes you wonder why he even admitted that he had a siscon relationship with Kirino to Ayase. :/

    Kirino got so annoying that I wanted to drop the series, but I held ’cause of Kuroneko. Kuroneko ftw!

    I think Taketatsu Ayana should get a prize for being able to make Kirino sound so annoying that everyone’s hating her. :P

    All I can do is cut/paste what I think about this show. Kirino sucks. All hail Manami-chan! Dancing nekomimi meido Kuroneko = HNNNNNG! Saori is a fun char. as well.

    @glothelegend I started to really like the mom in the end too.

    Haha me too! She’s pretty good at doing impressions, from Kirino to the dad! :D

    The characters poke fun of themselves in the commentary. Exactly what you all say about them, especially Kirino. Oreimo 10 anime trolls -10 XD
