At the live event held on December 5th, Aniplex has announced that the TV series of OreImo will be concluded in episode 12 as "Good End", but a "True End" arc will be branched off at episode 11 and will be streamed online. Producer Iwakami Atsuhiro said they will do their best not to postpone the streamings like Bakemonogatari.
Flowchart of the branches
TV series: episode 11 -> episode 12 (final of the good end arc)
Online: (episode 11) -> online episode 12' -> episode 13 -> episode 14 -> episode 15 (final of the true end arc)
Since when did OreImo turn into an eroge that has a good end and a true end?
Wasn't this a light novel?
Good end is going to suck bad or be very very simple I think, while the true end will cater to the incest lovers.
Hoping that true end will be Kyousuke ending up with any of the girls execpt Kirino.
I'm not really sure how it would play it out. There has been no romance between any of the characters, and Kirino is still 99% tsun and 1% dere so even an incest end seems unlikely (not like there is any chance they would do it) at this point. Still, I like the series, so the more episodes there will be the merrier I will become :)
AIC just HAD to completely screw their series at the end. This is not an eroge adaptation nor are the light novel series complete. Why couldn't they just end the season at a particular moment and then do a season 2 later? Considering how I've read the story continues they could very well do that, just ending the story where it is in such an eroge fashion is reeks of complete lack of care for their product. In fact, I dare say they committed what they made fun off back in episode 8. All for a few quick bucks.
Good ending -> Episode 12 TV
True ending -> Episode 12 Webcast
Nice ending -> Manami End
Shippers' ending -> Kuroneko End
Nice Boat ending -> Ayase End
Nice Car ending -> Saori End
Incest ending -> Bitch of the Season End
LN ending -> Obama-oniisan End
Well, now that I've gotten that out of my system, my main issue with this whole deal is the naming. Unlike Amagami or Yosuga no Sora where no particular arc is any less "true" than the others (despite what some people may tell you), by calling one end "good" and the other "true" establishes a pretty clear hierarchy which is sure to piss off a decent chunk of the base. Well, that and the fact that the novels are still going on.
The normal ending and true ending reminds me of Blazblue rather than an eroge game...
Where you know most of the background, but it is incomplete until you figure out the "true ending." This might be interesting.
