We have a slightly updated opening sequence this time around, featuring the newly acquired Magic Hand and Kyousuke understandably pissed off.
Oh sure, Queen’s Blade and Samurai Girls get heat for clothes getting torn off in battle, but it’s all peachy in Oreimo when it’s “just” a fighting game. The tentacle excuse won’t even work here!
So apparently that super cute younger sister was just a figment of our imagination last week. “Arigatou aniki” my ass you ingrate!
「俺の妹が夏コミとか行くわけがない」 (Ore no Imouto ga Natsu Komi toka Iku Wake ga Nai)
“There’s No Way My Sister Would Go To Stuff Like the Summer Comiket”
There’s bipolar and then there’s Kirino-level bipolar. Given the instant switch back to the Kirino of old, I’m starting to wonder how I was ever suckered in by that face. Damn that face. I can’t help but wonder if Kyousuke ever asks himself why he has to be the better person, because I sure as hell would be in his shoes. “Did you just call me a pervert when you’re the one getting porn secretly delivered!?” If that isn’t a surefire way to pop a vein, then being called an ero-gamer who holes himself up in his room on weekends should help increase that blood pressure. Let’s not forget that he already sacrificed every bit of dignity for this supposedly cute younger sister, after declaring himself as an incestuous pedophile to his father. At this point, Kirino’s gotten so good at coming off as a bitchy girl that it’s looking like this series is trying to brainwash some people into masochists as well. You know how some “smart people” once blamed the media for corrupting society? Anime may be one of the root causes in Japan!
In reality, I have no idea if there’s any truth to that, but did feel obligated to give a view on this series from the other side of the fence. i.e. The one that doesn’t like Kirino nor the incestuous relationship that this series appears to be subtly promoting. It’s pretty hard to deny that this series easily comes off as encouragement for average guys out there to start checking out their younger sisters; however, I’m sure there are those who are well past that promiscuous age and can see this as a comedic take on their own family experiences growing up. I for one don’t have a younger sister, but can definitely see the lack of appeal in one if she were anything like Kirino. At this point, the only thing she has going for her is that she’s pretty enough to be scouted as a middle school model. I dare say her plethora of negative personality traits has even offset that to a fair degree, and I’m not even talking about her interest in anime and eroge. Heck, that could even be considered a plus as far as I’m concerned. It’s that bitchy unappreciative attitude of hers that soars to new heights this time around, which has me quite conflicted as an anime viewer. I hear Taketatsu Ayana talking but I really want to see someone smack her around a little to shut her up. So um, hurray for good acting! -_-;
Anyway, that’s just my overall thoughts of the series based on this latest episode. I still enjoy every minute of it despite how Kirino’s not showing any redeeming qualities as of late, for which I’ll refer you to the captions as to why that is. I will say that Kyousuke is a trooper and if there’s anything that he should be happy about for all his suffering, it’s getting Ayase’s phone number. *cha-ching!*
The tendency is people being ruder online when they can hide behind the safety of their monitors, except when they happen to run an anime club (…or a blog).
Ah, Aragaki Ayase, an angel among disrespectful and selfish young girls. This is your true younger sister Kyousuke. It’s time for a remake! Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kanpeki na Wake ga Nai! (TL note: “perfect”)
Kyousuke’s tolerance level sure is high. At least one cushion should have been plastered to Kirino’s face by now.
Kirino’s expression has “irritating” written all over it as she comes swooping in to steal the goods.
It’s amazing the lengths Kyousuke will got to for Kirino after she made him out as loser for being an ero-gamer.
It would’ve been really funny if Kyousuke just let go at this point.
As bad as this looks, at least his right hand didn’t get up underneath her bra. We’ll just ignore the knee pressed up against her crotch.
This must be a whole new take on the saying, “Nice guys finish last.”
I’m starting to think that it’s the lack of dyed hair that keeps Ayase as the nice and understanding girl that she is. I’m so on board for a Kyousuke x Ayase finish even though that will never happen.
It’s kind of hard to give Kirino the benefit of the doubt about simply liking younger sisters if she wants to see them defiled. She has the nerve to call Kyousuke a pervert too. “Hey, I’m not the one with the loli porn in their hand!”
As cool as those cars may look at a comic festival, I can’t say the same about seeing someone step out of them in any other situation.
“Ugh, I think she broke a rib or two…”
It’s about time Kyousuke started looking down at Kirino with disgust.
“Ah my virgin eyes!”
The sight of Kirino stripping Kuroneko down had much more potential in the fan-service department. I’m disappointed.
Kyousuke’s actions may be working towards a better sibling relationship, but it’s at times like this when he should really question why he even tries.
We all know that Kirino isn’t any good at Siscalypse, but embarrassing herself on stage apparently doesn’t matter when her eye’s on the prize. I swear it’s like a moth to a flame when it comes to limited edition stuff in Japan.
It wasn’t quite a FADC into an Ultra Combo, but she sure showed that staff member some tentacle action like he’s never felt before. I bet he never got it from that “angle” before.
The best way to rid yourself of a dishonest girl is to pair her up with another one and laugh from the sidelines.
Now if a normal girl like Ayase had a small secret interest in manga, that would be a real example of how a little sister can’t be that cute. Kirino? I never thought I’d say it, but she’s a bit too bitchy for my tastes.
