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. ...

Mixed Feelings
After watching the first season of OreImo I was mildly surprised. It wasn't completely mediocre as I had suspected, and the show definitely showed potential, although that potential was never really fulfilled. Will the continuation finally break out of it's own shell? Let's look at Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Specials.

Story (6/10):
The first thing I noticed when watching OreImo's Specials, is that the plot seemed to have calmed down a bit. As you can recall, the first season of OreImo had some pretty bizarre arcs in there, that degraded the shows character focused story. This time around the plot seems ...

If you are watching this a decade later just as me, you probably had the opportunity to watch another work from the dearest Taketatsu Ayana, Dagashi Kashi Season 2.

This ONA has the EXACT same problem Dagashi Kashi had: "where is the protagonist?", we still have Kyousuke and the upgraded to main character Gokou "Kuroneko" Ruri, but honestly I don't get the hype over her, maybe it is yet another Hanakana character that people love for the seiyuu and not for itself. Anyway, the main issue is "where is the 'imo' of 'oreimo'?". Kirino doesn't show up until the second half of the last episode, and ...
