I'm started watching Imouto and I just wanna know, why do you guys like this? Kirino is a bitch and almost feels like a parody of tsundere with how over-the-top she acts and how cheesy it is. Or is it just some sort of a meme that I'm not getting, and you guys actually dislike it too?
>>
>>101519030
Apparently some people actually believe Kirino is a well written character and her abusive manner is normal.

I personally dropped it early, can't remember the episode, the one where she threw a fucking plate towards his brother.

Watch for Kuroneko and Ayase.

I have no idea how other people could stand her in the first part either. You do, kind of, warm to her in the end. And the other characters are cute. So, I don't know. Maybe try finishing it.
>>
>>101519030
It may as well be a parody with how much worse the anime made her compared to the source.

The majority of the people who like Oreimo/Kirino are those who've read the LNs, and it's the only thing worth discussing because between the cuts, exaggerations, fucked up characterization and missed point, the adaptation doesn't even begin to be able to stand on its own.

What she did was out of proportion to begin with, physical violence was never funny unless it's an actual comedy series.

throwing what might as well be a pillow at her brother for years of built up frustration is not out of proportion

She gets worse in season 2. She's still a cunt after they've sort of made up. And the reason it gives for her being that way makes her even worse.

Yes, Kirino's outbursts are immature. That's the point. They stop happening past that 'plate throwing' episode because that's essentially the turning point in her development. From then on she does everything she can to support him in whatever he wants.

The only reason why people give a shit about this shit is because it has INCEST.

Yes, incestfags are pretty desperate. Oreimo is awful in pretty much every way.

Kirino is pure otakubait.
>beautiful

What could you want more? This is cheap as dirt.
The other girls aren't better either. Kuroneko is your average dark chuunigirl that you would like to waifu and you get your token loli and borderline yandere as well.

And Kyousuke the MC is of course your classic japanese self-insert student as well. ''Talented but underperforming''. Just like you right?
>>
So if Kirino isn't a bitch in the LN she must be a completely different character altogether since that is basically her defining trait in the anime.

I don't know why people expect OniAi tiers of dick groveling/worshiping imouto in every incest anime. It's not exactly a feeling that's easy to come to terms with and very frustrating to deal with and of course siblings are going to act cold to one another then amplify that with self-loathing anger? If you whine about her not being sweet and moe, you have been obsessing over badly written characters and sorely need a break from anime.

It actually shows her failing in sport.
The other three never even come up.

The point is that early in the series Kyousuke's annoyed by his 'perfect' sister, but as they get closer he realizes most of his frustrations were misconceptions. You may as well have read only a character description because you clearly haven't moved on from early season 1.

Thanks a lot, OreImo.

Thanks for proving that all you have to do is vaguely disguise your shameless otaku pandering and people will lap you up like dogs.
For showing that people care more about stupid Waifu Wars bullshit than shows that actually require you to think for more than half a second.
For making 2013 one of the best years (recently) for anime also one of the worst.

I think the problem with the show is the anime staff did try to turn the series into what everyone hates it for.

The source material is fine and uses appealing characters and imouto to hook people into a solid and fairly well thought out romance LN, but the anime threw out the subtleties and forced characters into arc types to make it easier to digest. They were then stuck to adapting the original stories events, but due to lack of time they cut the lighthearted comedic elements to fit all the drama. What's left is an annoying clusterfuck of false flags and pandering that barely resembles the original series' intentions.
>>
>>101519030
Kirino is shit.
I'm not even kidding, she's really shit.
Nobody loves her, NOBODY. There are some people to claim to like her, but those are trolls and shitposters that want attention.
The series is still worth to watch it for Kuroneko, though I dropped it in season 2, after that completely unbelievable MC appeared to have doubts about her or "needed some time" or some other bullshit. It was pretty clear that the show then would descend into ultimate faggotry, which it apparently did if I can believe the threads that popped up later.

The entire point they made it into an anime is because people are too fucking lazy to read shit, some are too lazy to even read the manga of other anime adaptations. Like the Trinity (Naruto, Bleach, One Piece) everyone follows crowd because they don't want to be left out. Anyway, they made this anime so shipperfags would rage war and make this even more popular with all the fighting that no one can ignore. Kirino is a bitch because she lost her brother that she loved when she was young, then he turned into a lazyfag.

>>101533585
So is Kirino. It's also worth noting that Ayase treated him like a trophy she could use to get closer to Kirino and tried to rape Kyousuke against his will at one point. Not to mention threatening his life with a knife. And she was manipulative and mean to Kirino regarding her feelings for Kyousuke as well.

Best girl isn't the one that should win. The girl with the proper romantic development should win. Why you delusional self insertfags never realize this is beyond me.

>Best girl isn't the one that should win.
Best girl is pretty much a term that is used for self insertion purposes. Also, the reason why "best girl never wins" happens is because the "best girl" is usually seen by the idiot side of the fanbase as being perfect since she's a side character that barely gets any development. She's just there to add a +1 to the harem counter and for fanservice in general. Oreimo does use them as tools to get the MCs together though, so that's something at least.

Good discussion requires different viewpoints and compromise. Without different viewpoints you have a circlejerk. Without compromise you have two circlejerks going on simultaneously. And no one likes a circlejerk.

You either end up with a few people masturbating each others opinions of how shit or cute a girl is or you have two people essentially replying to each other with SHES SHIT and NO SHES CUTE over and over.

What was volume 11 discussion then? What about all the shit interpreting the whole series following volume 12? People disagreed on various matters and came to a conclusion based on the LN.

It sounds like people are thinking it's a circlejerk just because it's Kirinocentric, but the reality is the entire story is Kirinocentric so discussion about it will be too. There isn't much left undiscovered and no one willing to defend their differing opinions with citations from the LN, so all that's left is sharing what we know with those who listen.

Bitching about the discussion being shit isn't helping anything. If you want it to be better then make it better.

What? 90% of the discussions had about this series are sparked by dissenting opinions. People argue about the ending, what the character's motivations are, why Kirino is the way she is, etc. There are different viewpoints, that's why it gets discussed.

Hell, the most often thing talked about is the ending, which tons and tons of people disagree on and interpret differently.

Seriously, you could easily figure this out by just looking at the threads we've had. A while back in this thread:

>>101058135

We had an argument over whether or not Kuroneko and Ayase were being manipulative when they pushed Kirino to confess her feelings in Volume 12. A few Anons argued one point and a few others argued another, all of them had well thought out opinions and some even cited source material. It was a good discussion.

In this thread:

>>100903018

We had a discussion over what Manami's true motivations were when she told Kirino she should stop loving her brother and Kyousuke that he should stop trying so hard. The people discussing it all had different interpretations of her actions and talked about what they thought.

So please, fuck off with your ignorance or what is clearly a biased view of these conversations. You either haven't been in enough of these threads or you are misjudging what they are.

This kinda sucks because most of the people that have knowledge of the series are Kirinofags. Not to say the others don't but they're mostly butthurt about the ending and just shitpost. Anime only retards are at an overwhelming disadvantage too and that simply hurts discussion even more.

You still see different points of views even among us. As an example, I'm one of like two regulars here that hates Kuroneko even more than Manami and I get shit for it from Kirinofags about it and that has obviously led to interesting discussions on her.

In the end it's true that there's a lot of them and they spam too much for my taste but I rather them than the people who hate the series and are just here to shitpost. That's another thing. I hope you're not trying to legitimize the shitposting that goes on here from the butthurt and highly autistic idiots as necessary for good discussion.

Why wouldn't Kyousuke be just as important as Kirino? He is. They're duo-protagonists.

What are you talking about, anyway? Kirino is in easily 80% of scenes in the series if not more. Even moreso in the LNs because Kyousuke is constantly thinking about her.

>I tried to watch this series for her and the other girls, and got that dude instead

What is the problem? Did you watch Oreimo not realizing that it has a fucking male protagonist? There are very few scenes with Kyousuke alone and not him surrounded by female characters. If you don't want to see a dude constantly go watch K-ON! or something, for fuck's sake.

>every Oreimo hater only hates the series because they went into it with completely ridiculous expectations? This is something I've noticed a lot of.
My expectations weren't very high. I really enjoyed it until volume 7. I actually even rewatched the first season three times before that was translated I enjoyed it so much.

Kyousuke is the narrator for most of the story. It is his story as well as Kirino's.

It goes without saying that if you don't like him you probably won't enjoy the series.

There isn't a lot of reason to dislike him though. He's a bit perverted, but a genuinely good guy who pulls some really based stuff as super Kyousuke.

If you can't recognize Sakurai, you don't know shit about Oreimo.

>>101536206
The only volume I consider bad is 5. I feel like the author was forced to shit something out and the product was a Manami-like scenario that is almost depressing. I found it too difficult to digest and with very little actual substance beyond him missing Kirino.
>>
>>101536375
Too much drama and it felt really weird to me. I felt that after Kyousuke went to America for her and started calling himself a siscon they had a good thing going. As in they were more or less set to fuck. The drama felt unnecessary since if they both just shut the fuck up and continued their lives they would obviously eventually fall in love anyway. Especially Kyousuke agreeing to go out with kuroneko was really strange. Is he really that dumb?

Funny you mention that

>they introduce themselves as the "Didn't-appear-in-the-anime Duo"
>Ran backtracks, and says she got an appearance wayback in S1
>Sakurai still thinks the viewers won't recognize her
>Ran tells her to screw off back to the LN world, since didn't appear in the anime at all
>after some fighting, they make up
>Ran suggests they invite Sayaka (Ayase's stalker from volume 10) to go have lunch together as the "Didn't-appear-in-the-anime Trio"
Fucking brilliant

I still watched S2 even though it was so cringeworthy.
At least I didn't watch the OVA.

A reminder that the girl that deserves Ryuuji is a third party not present in OreImo.
>>
>>101536604
>Kyousuke dating Kuroneko
Yeah, I see where you're coming from here.

Kirino had to push him towards it though, and honestly he had zero dating experience before that, so now that he tried going out with another girl he can safely say he didn't just pick Kirino because she was there.
>>
>>101536604
I think there was this really uneasy time for both of them where they were afraid of growing apart again after they had reunited after so long.

But of course they're both to tsundere to actually talk to each other about it, so the fake boyfriend thing and Kyousuke dating Kuroneko happens before they actually come to understand that they mutually want to be the most important person to the other.

It's all very clumsy because of the character's being in that weird development phase, but it was still enjoyable to me.

That doesn't explain why he thought that was a good idea. I mean you would have to be retarded to not see all the girls interested in him at the point including his sister and what it meant to go out with one. He didn't even like her nor did he have a reason to but he does it anyway.

>>101536809
I cant agree with this. They were getting along great. There was no reason to think they would drift apart. I mean Kyousuke was literally calling himself a siscon. Do they not understand what siscon means. Because I do and it means you want to fuck your sister who is Kirino.

In reality the drama was a reset button because the author did not want to end the story yet which you can see quite clearly from him eventually turning it into a harem for one volume out of nowhere. OreImo could easily have been done in 8 volumes.
>>
>>101536604
He's not dumb. That's why he accepts. He thinks about it and it's obvious that he doesn't want to date Kuroneko. At that point, he's already thinking about Kirino as a possible lover. He eventually settles on trying to take the role of a good brother. It's practically forced upon him by the circumstances. I mean, remember his Mom's reaction? Yeah... you can't simply expect him to hope for the opportunity since he doesn't know what Kirino feels and he does talk about this in volume 7 and 8.

Couldn't agree more. Apparently he wrote Kuroneko in because she won a popularity poll. The entirety of Chapter 4 was golden though, a million times better than the anime. The way his Dad practically forced him out the door to go to America and he had made all these preparations and translation guides for him was hilarious. It was nighttime when he got there, Kirino came out of the building to greet him and answer the doorbell, they spent the whole night together alone, and they talked a lot more than they did in the anime.

>>101536604
>since if they both just shut the fuck up and continued their lives they would obviously eventually fall in love anyway

Did you really read the LNs? They have issues to get past and it isn't as simple as kiss and make up. Kyousuke pretty much falls head over heels with her in Volume 8 and Kirino has been in love with him since she was a child. They're still not being honest to themselves about their feelings and hiding from them even after that. It's kind of hard to explain, but I feel like if you'd read the LNs you'd know what I'm talking about.

As for him dating Kuroneko, this is another reason I don't believe you've read them. He says it himself. (next post)

I see now.

“Huh? That’s your problem. Why are you asking me now?”

I really wanted to punch the me from the past in the face.

Ah… I see. I understand it now.

You hate it. Just like me, you can’t stand it when your sibling gets a lover, but unlike me, you did something that I failed to do.

Now that I think about it – 'If a girl who is dear to you confesses her love to you… you must think about it carefully'.

She forced her feelings down and gave me a push. That's why I could become Kuroneko's lover.

Wasn't it thanks to my sister that I could face Kuroneko without doubt? How could I allow myself to get a girlfriend if, at the same time, I was forcing my feelings on her?

I hesitated purely out of instinct.

I finally understand how much my little sister cares for me.

It was weird how Kyousuke told his mum the fact he got an A means he wasn't doing anything strange with Kirino.

He got that A for Kirino's sake

We're talking volume 7 this happened months before the exam.

>“Misunderstanding!? What misunderstanding? Do you know that there are some things you can do while there are other things that you mustn’t?”

>Suddenly, her expression changed, like she just realized something very horrible.

>“Could it ..could it be you ---“

>“You finally laid your hand on your little sister!?”

>“Er --?”

>Mom! How did it turn into this?

>“Don’t play dumb! One of the neighbors told me you two were holding hands in the bus station!”

>This world is so small! My neighbors saw that!?

>“Could it be a triangle relationship between brother and sister…! No! As your mother I will not allow it!”

>“No! It is not like that!”

>“So why is Kirino crying? Because of you isn’t it!”

>“Yes, because of me, but it isn’t like what you imagine!”

This is the scene before the end of volume 7 and Kyousuke accepts Kuroneko a day or so later after talking with Manami/Kirino.

>Because I do and it means you want to fuck your sister who is Kirino

That's the definition of the word but that's not how he uses it. He uses it in the sense that he cares way too much about his sister. If you're going to led credence to him claiming that he's a siscon, you're also going to have lend that same credibility to his words when he says several times out loud and his mind that he wouldn't lay a hand on his sister and he has barely any sexual feelings for her.

He says that Kuroneko is really cute several times in the series prior to Volume 8. Not to mention that is the first girl that has ever asked him out and she is his friend who is quite adorable. Just listen to the thoughts and feelings he has when he's dating her and you'd know what I mean. Compared to when he starts dating Kirino and it's completely natural and he does so with outgoing confidence and genuine love towards her. He didn't really love Kuroneko in the first place.

>“Nothing…Just feels like between you being my ‘little sister’ and my ‘girlfriend’ – actually, there is not much of a difference.”

>In reality the drama was a reset button because the author did not want to end the story yet which you can see quite clearly from him eventually turning it into a harem for one volume out of nowhere. OreImo could easily have been done in 8 volumes.

What a load of shit. Fushimi planned the whole ending since very early in his writing. There's a lot of foreshadowing that supports this too.
>>
>>101537479
Sakurai would have undoubtedly been butchered. The only way to do the adaptation right is to cut out barely anything. Even adding in her and Sayaka wouldn't do enough to fix it. The only thing we can really do is point anime viewers to the LNs.

The good discussions about characters and motivations and fun friendly times were all before vol12.
It's over now, that's never, ever coming back.

This is what happens when shounen romance shit ends, most people lose interest and the ones who didn't are either fucking pissed or diehard supporters.

Read the archives and remember the fun times.

More ignorance here. In this thread >>101422640 there were several posters throughout the duration of the thread who were upset over the ending. LN readers posted the pastebin and helped explain things. The confused Anons thanked them and then calmed down after realizing the ending isn't what they thought it was. This has happened many times before as well, it's why that pastebin was created and why it has over 2,000 views.

Why are you such a retard?

Thanks for not bumping.

I was just repeating what another Anon told me. It makes a lot of sense though, as she felt like she was shoehorned in and her parts were pretty painful. Wish I knew for sure it was true or not.

The anime made Kirino way more tsundere than she's supposed to be. In the Light Novels she's more neutral. She gets better later on either way.
