The true end arc of Ore no Imouto. These four episodes branch out after the 11th episode of the main TV series and present an alternative version to the end of the TV series. These episodes contrast with the good end arc of the TV series, which was an original ending written for the anime, and instead closely follows the original story from the light novels.

Nothing is worse for the adaptation of a still-publishing novel than a filler ending, especially if the anime turned out to be rather popular, as is the case with Ore no Imouto. The problem with filler endings of course, is that it's extremely difficult to make a sequel that is still faithful to the original material.

I imagine the producers at Aniplex were quite peeved and banging their heads against the wall about 6 episodes in, when they realized that their anime could be milked for at least another season. But what can they do now? There isn't enough episodes left to change the filler ending. read more

I’m not going to use arbitrary numbers since that’s not going to help you understand what I just watched. These episodes are the true ending of Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai (or Oreimo [or My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute]), so it goes without saying that you need to watch the first season of the show in order to understand them. Now it’s hard for me to quantify this series on a scale of whether I like it or don’t like it (I really like it), because it’s just so damn charming and I get the feeling it shouldn’t be. read more

I'm critiquing this anime based solely on the present story progression without any hindsight pertaining to the light novel. It has been my experience that reading the original material before watching the animation may result in set expectations that might negatively impact one's opinion of the animation.

That being said, no I did not enjoy the specials at all. I understand this was an effort to continue the series with what little ongoing story material not covered in the televised series. However, from what was presented in the specials, I think that the overall series would've benefitted more from original televised ending. read more

I've already watched both seasons of OreImo, and decided I wanted to rewatch them and write reviews for each section right after finishing them.
If you're on the fence about watching this show, here's how it is: OreImo is a damn good Romcom, and if you enjoy that kind of light hearted show, you should definitely watch it.
This here is the "True Arc" ending to season 1. Basically, this is what happened when the first season surpassed expectations and the anime producers thought "We need to find a way to milk this more. That produced these 4 episodes of alternate ending to the first season, read more

One of the underlying plot bits in each of these is a pair of gamers working together to create an eroge.

Look at it as a legit excuse to supply fans with who happen to be more popular than the actual heroine.
What do you do when the secondary heroine, according to fan-based feedback, is more popular than the story based first heroine? Well, you made a sequel full of her.
But this two aren't just a story-bended complete fanfare. They are great because they stay true to the real story of the original creator (check the novel), and also supply fans with limitless appearance of more popular, less annoying secondary heroine. Thank your god.
For a less okay example of how to supply fans with  read more
