The ending of this just bothered me so damn much.
Despite what others say about it, I enjoyed the series a lot, not so much the waifu wars, but I always knew Kirino would win.
Why couldn't the author just be a man about it and go with the ending he wanted?
We all know she won, and we all know how the author "wanted" to end it, so why didn't he just do it?
This shit bothers me almost as much as the Angel Beats ending.
For clarification, I'm mostly talking about the fact that he made "Kirino win" and then had to use implications after a break-up to imply that they'd still be together, instead of just making them be together/get back together/stay together.
Editors made him write ending that way.
did he finally come out and say that or something? Haven't been in an oreimo thread since the day of the last episode, or close to it when people were talking about how he said "he wanted to ending to be closer to the VN what if Kirino Ending"
I've seen this around a few times. Is there an actual basis to say this, or is it wild speculation?
I've read about this in one of Oreimo thread on /a/ - don't have sources saved unfortunately
What kind of ending did he exactly want?
Ok, found source
Need to know moon to decipher.
From what people have said he would have written a more conclusive ending where you know 100% that Kirino and Kyousuke fuq basically, instead of one where it's just implied they still have feelings for each other and will get back together some day/sharing a secret.
An ending where Kirino truely wins, and doesn't go "We'll go back to being normal siblings." Kyousuke's kiss breaking that promise and Kirino saying "When we get home we are going to do more life counselling" was supposed to imply that, but it had to be implied because otherwise too many normalfags would get their jimmies rustled, so the producers didn't want it.
He wanted full Kirino ending, like in PSP Oreimo game (but with them still being bloodrelated) but his editor/publisher made him tone down ending a lot.
What was the ending??
I'll never get it. Look at Angel Sanctuary, for example. They are blood related, they love each other from the beginning, and they fuck in volume 3 (out of 20). Hell, they even make that a huge plot point later in the manga. And I don't see anyone flipping their shit over it. I'll seriously never understand.
That also came out in the year 2000. and I'm not sure how popular it was, so I won't say something like "Oreimo is more popular". But there was laws about incest in anime around the time YnS came out, well after it.
Probably one of the main points that discouraged them.
Oreimo was also essentially for all ages so it wouldn't have done anything too risque anyways. The fact they even confessed and married was pretty surprising to be honest, it could have been so much worse.
Because his publishers wouldn't allow it.
