Ore no Kouhai ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai follows the story of the light novels, set at the time when Kirino Kousaka leaves for America to undergo athletic training. While the OreImo anime series tells the story in Kirino's elder brother Kyousuke's point of view, OreKou focuses on Kuroneko's experiences as Ruri Gokou, a high school freshman who becomes Kyousuke's junior. While Kuroneko struggles in mingling with her new classmates, she tries to sort out her feelings for Kyousuke.

This is about Kuroneko's love story with her best friend's brother. The "Oreimo" manga is the prequel to this "Oreimo Kuroneko" story. If you saw the anime and wanted a different ending, this manga is for you.

Story: A fairly straight forward romance between a girl and her best-friend's brother Kyousuke, whom she's in love with. The romance is a godsend after that horrible anime ending. But this manga as a standalone story is not worth reading. Since you need to know these character's before even starting to read it. And the transition from the Prequel Oreimo to this sequel was a bit awkward.

Since I don't think many people is gonna come here, I'll summarize extremely the experience you can get from this manga..... "No Kirino", that's it, if you're a Kuroneko/Ruri Gokou fan, who's by far the most unique and well developed character from Oreimo, and if you're also a huge shipper for her and Kyousuke, then I more than recommend this manga, I beg you to read it, especially given the 100% satisfying conclusion that will surely erase all of the frustration the original ending gave us, again... "No Kirino" (at least not much of her).

Outside that overall experience and enjoyment, the artwork is really well read more

tl;dr: A manga focused on Kuroneko that does right by her for the most part but missed the mark in a few areas.

This manga is technically a sequel to the first Oreimo manga, but not quite. It’s very different from the first manga because unlike the first manga which is from Kyousuke’s perspective like the light novel and anime, this manga is from Kuroneko’s perspective. Additionally, there’s a massive gap between where the first manga ends and this picks up. To put it in anime terms since I am not familiar with the original light novel, it skips half a season’s worth of content. And read more
