It was that great! In fact I have lived countless hours to arrive at what is in the spoiler
indeed it is none other than #1 best of this series, that of Kuroneko's kiss on Kyousuke even though it was more of a curse to motivate Kyousuke to bring back Kirino and so starts a Kirino section.

best part of the show.
i really hate kirino but i actually felt sad when she actually left. she still needs to change her attitude though.

I love the 2 special episodes(2&3) and i like the part before Kyousuke travel to america.
Since i did not laugh while watching season 1 (i like ep9 &10 tho), surprisingly i enjoy the 2 special episodes a lot.
They should make the first 8episodes in 2 or 3 episodes and replace Manami story with Saori story(i do not read the novel but i suppose there will be something).

I can understand the purpose of getting Kirino back but the ending is still incomplete.
Glad that i made it this far even though i thought of dropping after watching ep5 or 6.
I really like the 2 episodes focusing on Gokou.

Well first off, I WAS GLAD when Kirino was back. All first 3 episodes I was like WHERE TF is Kirino??!!

Kuroneko's story was very entertaining. Yes I love BOTH Kirino AND Kuroneko!

Kyousuke was annoying as always. Always so nosy, and ugh...I just don't like him. Sorry.

THe fact that he wanted Kirino for his selfishness pissed me off, but I was still happy she came back.

Kirino and Kuroneko 's friendship is unique, but great!
And yes we neeed MORE saori!

Tell you what, get rid of Kyousuke and bring Saori as the big sister... or something like that, yes??

JK, pshh i wish, anyways if there is a 2nd season I will definitely watch. :D

Why hate on Kirino? Isn't it normal for a little sister to act bratty to her older brother? Besides, if Kirino wasn't like that, then there wouldn't even be any real story - if Kirino wasn't like that, her brother couldn't love her and put up with her like he did in this whole series.

So are you guys saying you wanted Kirino to act all goody-goody and be like 'the perfect little sister' or a Barbie Princess?

If I were to guess this really is the final stop for the series. looking how these specials ended, and with no announcements of any sequels to come, I cannot say otherwise sadly.
A few things that buggers me with this kind of ending tho: That Yaoi, or whoever, never shows us her real identity. Maybe she's just some random rich daughter then...
With Kuroneko, or Goukou, just about everyone here that actually liked the show would want to see some kind of sequel to the possible romance there as well. Personally I was hoping that when Kirino came home, Gokou would take Kyosuke's hand or something while giving his sister the lurky smile.
All in all the show did not end all that different from other shows from the past, it's become a pattern with only 1 button called "repeat".
Still glad they made something more directly from the novel, which gave me more pleasure watching a 2nd,and better closure than the original series gave me.

My second time watching this i remember how much I loved this series. I don't understand why everyone has so much hate for Kyousuke. I thought at the end he acted pretty normal I mean a bit over-dramatic but good. I hope they do a 2nd season with this ending as the start. 8/10 for this OVA

The OVA was fantastic. I really hope they will make a second season. This series has so much potential and so many fans to support it. Aniplex needs to realize this!

I don't know what's up with all the Kirino hate... not every tsundere has to be fully committed to being nicer as the story develops :p. Sure she has a pretty bad attitude but that's what drives Kyousuke to be a better brother for her. Kuroneko has some good moments, but I was generally bored of her in the first series so seeing her in this special was a little bit offputting for me.

hm, a lot of people didnt seem very satisfied with the conclusion, and I guess I can sum it up best in one word: anti-climatic.

Honestly, with Kirino not bothering to contact any of her friends and family for 3 months until those two ominous texts, one would think that there would be a more significant underlying issue and more dramatic overtone than simply not doing well at the training camp. Either that, or it was terribly rushed and undersold as a plot point for it to make any sort of impact on me as a viewer.

Also, why bother to introduce the potential of a kuroneko romance only to shove it aside and have Kyousuke grovel like a dog to have kirino come back to japan? He would really "die" if she didnt come back with him and placate his "loneliness"? Based on the previously 3 episodes, maybe like 30 seconds was served as to remind everyone that Kirino was still on kyousuke's mind? He seemed fine to me, not suicidal, as he would claim. Again, not believable.

The producers really have to get it out of their minds that crying makes a scene genuine to the viewer (L00king at Y00, kyousuke). It's an automatic signal from the writers that I should care, but it's so contrived that it defeats the whole purpose.

I really don't have a side as to Kirino or Kuroneko, but that last sequence so horribly executed and out of character. Kinda put me off of what was otherwise a wonderful story arc.

I'm proud I completed this series?! :) Great episodeeeeeee!~. Although they should've shortened the school life time by 1 or 2 episodes and show more of kirknooo!! Super nice series, and should've been inside the original series. Hoping for season 2 for more kirino, kuroneko and manami! Plzz season 2!!

Well, we'll just have to wait for the second season to really say how this "ending" works or not. I liked the focus on Kuroneko, but ultimately the focus of the series IS Kirino so it was a bit of a relief to see her again. I wouldn't have a problem if Kuroneko ended up with Kyousuke though.

Nice OP with chara intros (again! ;D) and seeing Kirino running track! I would have liked to see more of that honestly :P
Now this episode ... Sena, you are awesome, never change :') WE SAW SAORI WITHOUT HER GLASSES! ;O Not really but XD Plus Ruri's got friends now yay :D
I gotta say that text was really surprising ... throwing away her collection?! Minami's so nice :3 Although I think mixing it with Ruri's "confession" (which it practically was) kind of ... I dunno, didn't work out that well? XD Lol :P
Kyousuke flies to the USA to see Kirino. Started fairly lighthearted (let's play porn games! :P) but I gotta say that I thought it was something more intense than Kirino just placing restrictions on herself. I mean, not contacting anyone for six months?! Of course they'd be worried! D: Kyousuke's confession really hit my feelings though :S He's just lonely ... aweh T_T What a nice brother T_T I wish I had one like him D:
Two tsunderes again with Kirino and Ruri XD Gotta say I loved Kirino's "Aniki" though :P Ending with another concert and that jump (wtf?!) was kind of ... weird lol. Anti-climatic I guess XD Plus the ED wasn't that great either X_X
So overall, I did like the OVAs about as much as the series. NEW CHARACTERS AWESOME XD I guess the ending was just kind of disappointing, although I guess there's not much you can do when Kirino's gone for half of the series :P So same score as the original: 8/10
There will be a second season apparently, which I am looking forward to :)

I liked the Good End, but I think this was way better. Though the school-life of Kuroneko and Kyousuke felt somewhat out of place without Kirino. I still liked it very much.

I'm really happy for Kirino and Kyousuke, they are so cute together (as brother-sister). But I'm also happy for Kuroneko and Kyouske, if they won't make lovers out of Kirino and her brother I hope he ends up with Kuroneko (anyone but Manami!).

I wrote my main review on the series' last episode, so I'm just gonna say that this, as well as the series itself, is a 9/10.

The 2nd season will follow this End btw, right?

Mostly, I was content with the specials because Kuroneko simply proved to be a more "rewarding" protagonist than Kirino. She was way better balanced. I'm not saying Kirino should have been all lovey-dovey; Kuroneko was a prime example of a better character though. She was never swooning over Kyousuke, had a decent tsun-side, but she DID also have a convincing dere-side, that seemed sincere and came about in the perfect dose.
Well, I'm not a Kuroneko-Fan, just for clarification, I'd just prefer her over Kirino as a main heroine because of certain character traits and -mostly- development, that's all. But the show had various problems even without the female protagonist issue.

I am also wondering what ulterior message this show wanted to give me. Kirino simply running away from training camp because she just didn't manage to get better and ignoring her friends out of pride was almost overglorified. Why did Kyousuke even cry so much over her being away? People need to become independent and grow up, geez. So many characters in this show have just been overreacting so much. :x

I think the specials were fine, but somehow lacking a lot.

Also, Kirino-lovers, please face it. Kirino was a character that developed a great potential of being hateable. It's not at all surprising she IS being disliked by many. (And yes, look, those are MANY, it's not really coming from nowhere.)
However, it's an opinion based on the show's plot and the character development. If you seriously think the forums are only there to come here and glorify all the characters, worshipping the show and whatnot - sorry, I have to disappoint you. That is NOT what reality is like. This topic is even called "discussion", so please to realize that does include negative reactions.

You're being very very childish calling people that criticize Kirino "Kirino-Haters" and demanding them to not post on forums or drop the show. Seriously, please grow up. (This thread would be sooo boring with only people drooling over Kirino. =D)

All of this, Kirino is not that bad when she acts normally, but that tsun mode is just so annoying.

I wanted to rate this 9/10 for the awesome not-Kirino characters, but the ending made it 8/10 just like the regular series, boo...

People who hate Kirino are silly.

This anime wouldn't be the same if it wasn't for Kirino. Kirino is the reason this anime is the way it is, whether you like her or not. I do wish there was more Kuroneko screen time though.

That kiss from Kuroneko was great, it would have been even better if it was on the lips. Oh man, just imagine that. I also really liked the ending, I missed Kirino.

Great series, kinda sad that its over, BUT really looking forward to the next season!

but why, oh why, did I get Kirino (which I simply hate) ending, when the arc was supposed to be about Kuroneko, huh?

The specials were NEVER just about Kuroneko per say. They were about following the "TRUE ROUTE" of the light novels after Kyousuke goes and buys her an eroge.

The light novels used the absence of Kirino who was in America to develop Ruri's character as a possible love interest rival to Kirino which is currently being played out in the later volumes of the light novel. It also develops a side character, Sena, who epitomizes the same bratty nature that Kirino possesses.

As much as Kirino can be quite obnoxious, without her, there would be no Kuroneko, Saori, and Ayase in Kyousuke's life. She is that glue the binds everyone together.

Actually isn't that the other way round, if it wasn't for Kyousuke, Kirino wouldn't have friends like Kuroneko and Saori. Who cares about Ayase, I certainly think he'd have been better off not knowing her lol. It wouldn't really change anything in the least.

Kirino makes me want to vomit up my intestines. Such a horrible character. I was hoping she would at least like her brother at the end, but she was still a little bitch to him. I hope theres an OVA showing her slow and painful death.


Lol, that would be funny, or you could just look up hentai on her, I'm sure with all the hate going on someone has made a really nasty hentai involving her.

Namida_ne said:
Eh, all those specials were so weak. The whole plot would make much more sense if Kyousuke were in America, and Kirino was going to bring him back. 'Cause he is older and it would be more real. Kirino was the one who should learn something from missing him. Aaah, anyway. I myself have a brother, three years older than me, and I am Kirino's age and I really know that siblings just don't act like this. Hahhah, I can't imagine what my brother would say if I was acting as childish and idiotic as Kirino.

Kuroneko is the best thing in this whole series, many people say that and it's so true.

That is so true, I agree it should be the other way round. Only main problem is this whole series was so centralized around bratty Kirino it didn't even give Kyousuke any qualities that would have opened an opportunity for him to go abroad. He literally was too busy running around at Kirino's orders to make a life for himself.

See how he even was so keen to throw away his life just so he can go back to being Kirino's pet. (Choosing to once again start worrying about her rather than beingg with Kuroneko). No matter how much he may have cared for her, there is no way he would die without her, am I supposed to be mistaken that he was enjoying the nicer and more peaceful company of Manami and Kuroneko. Perhaps he really is a masochistic sis-con lol.

His concern over her was genuine until he says that he'd die if she doesn't come home with him. Had I been him I'd have said, "Then you have a choice, you can come on home with me, or you can stay and fight."

Why in the world would Kyousuke be inclined to beg for her to come back like some repentant husband who's been left by his wife

An average episode but the these four specials were enjoyable. The latter half of this episode is much better than the first half especially during that talk and the airport. I lol'd @ that raspberry scene. Dat tsundere.

Also, dat kiss on the cheek:

4/5 for episode, 7/10 for series.

I know right.

I don't know how many girls who have brothers watching that show, but I remember when I was still in school there were no relationship whatsoever with my brothers; we weren't close at all, I mean they were just there.

So I am surprise of some guys having sister complex.

Bravo Kyousuke for just flying to America willy nilly to see her. It's crazy but then I should have expected this.

I got to understand Kuroneko and Kyousuke a lot better now that they've shown a different side to themselves. Although I was disappointed at the lack of Kirino throughout the 4 episodes due to her reason. Without Kirino, it just doesn't feel like OreImo so I'm overjoyed that she's back. Also appreciated the brief scenes of Saori in her house, I wanted more of that previously.

Not really sure if the True Route is as critical as it implies. I mainly saw it as a chance to develop the characters more. I think Kuroneko above all, seemed to have benefited the most from the experience. Enjoyable specials, 6/10.

See, why can't Kirino have been like this more throughout the series. I liked her way more in this final episode than any other one.

The end was wayy to melodramatic for me. Kyousuke was acting too much like a baby. I liked the scene with Gokou behind the school. Sure it was "a curse" ;D
I'm also glad all the characters at least got some screen time. It was a good series to watch but nothing extraordinary. 7/10

And there i thought when he went to NY and knock on the door that the door will open by some dude and he will find his sister impregnated and in the middle of a gangbang orgy with the word bitch written on her forehead. What a disappointment(i probably seen too much hentai), have to search for the doujins for that i guess.

this ending was much much better than before tho kirino is back the fact she hasnt changed means she will stilll be colder ice then the sun cld melt there is nothing interesting about here she has no good side unless she is forced into it like the time she gave a present to Kyosuke even giving this another season nothing wld progress tbh i think the best and most sensible couple is manami and kyosuke as they are allready prtty close so close he calls her granparents as if they are his and treats rock like a brother i do not knw why that closeness didnt continue through out the series this was basically anti harem thats how little rommance there was in this series

I am satisfied to see that Kuroneko doesn't dislike him and was happy with all the time they'd spent together, it seemed for a while towards the end that she didn't need him anymore cause she was friends with Akagi. But it's pretty obvious that she likes him, and as someone mentioned she can't go after him fully because of his somewhat siscon situation.

Still, 3 episodes with his sister pretty much out of the picture were great, it's a grand irony that the main focus of the show being gone was what made it better when sadly it was supposed to be about her. Perhaps that's the point; i was so disappointed when this anime stop being about helping his sister not feel lonely in her weird hobby and showing to others that hobbies are fine and they don't hurt anyone, however weird, and I thought it'd be an anime about the growing bond between a brother and sister through this concept. But nope, it was pretty much an anime about how a brother would never get the 'dere' side of tsundere, cause sadly his sister's a spoiled bitch that will never change.

Kuroneko was pretty much the only legitimate tsundere, a character that actually developed and matured, learning to rely on others, making an unlikely friend, and even admitting her feelings for Kyou, all while keeping tsundere intact (and not while being a massive bitch). *sigh* Still, i suppose i'm satisfied now that the whole thing diffused a bit and we had a character that developed, at least Kirino didn't violent abuse him again. But after putting up with an entire season where Kirino didn't mature at all (until ep 11 where the 'dere' finally came out) and a premise that started out great but was derailed by a main character that refused to be appreciative of all her brother did, I can't say I'll be watching season 2.

The themes of social acceptance, hobbies and friendship were hurt by Kirino i think, otherwise this would have ended up being a 'feel good' anime.

And then, the oreimo fandom began to weep, because the most hated character Kirino returned.
The only thing that saved the episode was the kiss from kuroneko.

A tad bit disappointed, i expected more...Kyosuke's outbreak was a bit weird. But whatever, i guess it works..

The rest was good, this would be a terrible ending if this didn't have a sequel but since we do.. :D

Overall great series, its not that great (i would agree with it being rather overrate). But it does have something that draws me in more than most of this genre, i loved it ^^

Thing about Kirino is she does have a very cute side to her, but mostly she's just too rude to Kyosuke, even after all he's done its kinda disheartening for me..that's pretty much preventing me from LOVING her. Don't really like Kyosuke's obsession with her,well he IS a siscon :)

BUT Kuroneko <3!

8/10 as a whole.
