Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai. (Oreimo) Season 2 Episode 13 – Now we wait

Being a bro.
Being a bro.

Just waiting for the conclusion.
Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai. Season 2 Episode 13
Oreimo Season 2 Episode 13
“Little Sisters Can’t Fall in Love With Their Older Brothers!”
“Imōto ga Ani ni Koi Nante Suru Wake Nai”
(妹が兄に恋なんてするわけない)

To be honest, there’s not a lot to cover in this episode at all. It sends the same message in different ways, and while that’s not bad, it doesn’t really make for an episode with plenty of material to talk about. Nonetheless, it sets the background necessary for the 3 OVAs that will be airing all on the same day on August 18th. (Information on Japanese website here)

Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai. (Oreimo) Season 2 Episode 13 Impressions

Kirino crying

Awww…

Kousaka Kyousuke chibi

Still a bro.

Kyousuke oreimo bunny

What a brocon.

Kirino kyousuke dramatic falling kids

Most dramatic fall ever.

HELL YEAH. MAHOU SHOUJO STUFF.

HELL YEAH.

Kyousukexmanami

Kirino anime shocked

LOL.

We already know that Kirino used to really like her brother. Well, it’s more like she never stopped liking him but just became straight up cold towards him after he set her aside. The dependence came at a young age and evolved to such an extent that Kyousuke feels awkward when confronted with her sister’s feelings. To Kyousuke, it’s just him helping out his sister a few times like a family member should, but to Kirino, he was really the only person she could depend on for almost anything. Then, it’s no surprise that she saw him through rose coloured glasses and became a brocon.

Kirino in shower

Oh how he’s changed.

Partially agreed.

Haven’t we all felt that at least once when we were younger? “I’ll show them! I’ll be so good, they won’t be able to talk back or anything!” That’s what happened to Kirino in this case, and I must say that it’s a pretty good way to motivate oneself. But when your goal is to be acknowledged by someone and that someone stops being as amazing as you thought he or she was, it must be pretty devastating. That, or the fact that the rose coloured glasses finally fell off and Kirino began to see that her brother isn’t as great as she thought he was.

Tamura Manami

Oh damn. It’s like she stole him or something. Haha.

BEGIN THE NEVER ENDING TSUN.

Ouch.

Kousaka Kirino

Kirino and Aragaki Ayase

Moar Ayase at least.

While Manami still remains soft in her demeanor, her words are still quite harsh. I guess now we finally know why Kirino hates her so much. Well, that alone isn’t enough, but I looked on some forums and apparently she “manipulated Kyousuke at a weak and sensitive time” with these events about his grandmother and Sakurai, a character not introduced in the anime at all. Now I can see why some people consider her to be the closest thing to an antagonist of this series. Anyways, the rest before the amazing otaku moments is just a pretty ordinary talk with Ayase that doesn’t amount to much other than Kirino trying to gain her brother’s recognition yet again.

IT BEGINS.

Oreimo Kirino Kousaka

This is when Kirino shines.

Ayase startles Kirino

LOL.

Otaku ninja.

Ore no imouto kousaka kirino otaku

THAT’S MORE I LIKE IT.

Shit…

Kousaka Kyousuke angry

That was pretty awesome.

Now, for the wait.

In Oreimo, one of the things I enjoy watching the most has to be Kirino’s otaku moments. It’s just this quirky behavior that makes her stand out and much better than the typical imouto. Though, her attitude towards Kyousuke kind of cancels that. Even so, it’s great seeing her completely in love with the eroge once more. Through that, she gains an understanding of her brother and rekindles the bond between them even though she’s abusing him most of the time. Kirino now understands that Kyousuke understands that he’s a normal person. And what of it? It doesn’t matter that he’s a normal person or not. He’s still the onii-san she’s always been going after. The fact that he’s normal doesn’t affect her feelings for him, and we’ll be seeing that in roughly a month and a half.

Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai. (Oreimo) Season 2 Episode 13 Review

A lot of people are disappointed by this episode, and while I’m underwhelmed, it’s definitely a necessary step to take for the rest of the series to work out. I’d rather have the background story set up already going into the one hour finale because I just want things to happen and end properly. I don’t want to have to go through a lengthy flashback like this in the last three episodes. It’s more like they used this episode to get the background story out of the way. But still, I didn’t really like this episode and it feels like it wasted a lot more time than it should have. The same message is just said from Kirino’s point of view. That’s nice and all, but everyone kind of knew that. They could have still done this type of episode, but they should have at least made it a bit more… emotionally involving or eye-opening. It just feels like more of a recap episode than anything else. At this point, I’m just waiting for this anime to end so I can give my final thoughts and review everything in its entirety. However, this episode has certainly not made me more excited about the OVAs. Hell, it’s obvious who’s going to win now, but we’ll need to wait to see how they do it. So now, we wait.

    • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

      August 18th is when all 3 episodes will be released. Yes. At the same time.

  • http://youtube.com/user/JumpingLogans Gamematio

    This episode is just setting the motive of Kirino loving Kyousuke, this episode will explain the why of the 3 episodes that are coming in August, and the author of the LN said that the series ended, if you want prove just read the Afterword of Vol.12, don’t know where to read it? here: http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Ore_no_Im%C5%8Dto_ga_Konna_ni_Kawaii_Wake_ga_Nai:Volume_12_Afterword
    So yeah, can’t wait till August, I’m a little down knowing that this is the real end of the whole series and anime, want to cry but, the tears don’t come out hahaha, but yeah, sad.

    • http://youtube.com/user/JumpingLogans Gamematio

      Just putted the theme song, and I just cried … hahaha this is Sakurasou all over again.

      • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

        Aaaaa Sakurasou! Overly dramatic at times but I really liked the show overall. For some reason it’s just randomly… inspiring? Hoping for a season 2. Oh and I heard the LN is ending for Sakurasou as well.

        • http://youtube.com/user/JumpingLogans Gamematio

          Yeah … well this is the end of Oreimo and Sakurasou, great hahaha

    • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

      Yep, it is the last volume of the LN. I thought that was clear though.

      Anyways, I totally understand that it’s just setting things up. It’s a necessary step. I’m just waiting to see it all end. It’s not going to make me cry, but then again, there’s always something with the end of something that makes it sad.

      • http://youtube.com/user/JumpingLogans Gamematio

        of course, and I just felts sad after reading the Afterword.

  • The Atomic Dwarf

    Well if anything this last ep kinda hinted at where the show is going. That and the title which most of us tried to mentally block in hopes that he will not go for the obvious but choose another girl.

    I mean between the Gothic Queen Kuroneko and the Yandere Godess Ayase either would’ve been a great match for him… But this is Japan…. where wincest reigns supreme! Either way this show was pretty good but honestly it’s spot in my heart got stolen by Oregairu halfway.

    • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

      Haha, I kind of feel the same with regards to OreGairu. Sad that the last episode was just an extra. I’m thinking of just doing an overall review instead of doing the last episode which really doesn’t go over anything. Moreover, some of the animations in that episode is… Pretty funny.

      • The Atomic Dwarf

        You could fill a whole post with just one moment. Yukinon blush! HNGGGGGGGG!
        True it deserves a proper send-off. And please no pole jokes ok?

        • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

          Well, I’m going to do the review regardless, but I’m going to be pretty busy so doing the extra is going to be kind of a waste.

          DAT YUKINON BLUSH SHIIIITTTT. Well, I’ll add it in the review or something then I guess.

          POLE JOKES? I DIDN’T EVEN REMEMBER THAT. And now I do.

  • http://youtube.com/user/JumpingLogans Gamematio

    What’s funny is that in the PSP game if you choose the Ayase Route at the ending Ayase is pregnat with Kyousuke’s baby hahaha and Kirino just accepts it and yeah haha.

  • ThatOneGuy

    I’ve really been wondering what song is played when it’s raining, right before Kirino gets pissed at Kyouske.
