Oreimo 2 episodes 14, 15 & 16

Could it be? Does god really exist? I don’t know if I can suddenly start believe in such a fictional character just because I wished for a much, much better Oreimo ending. No point in questioning why something so wonderful happened.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 15 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.37_[2013.08.19_23.09.12]

First and foremost; Ruri got rejected! Oh happy day, Ruri got rejected! I started getting chills when I saw them taking quietly and acting all melodramatic. I almost stood up and clapped my hands when Kyousuke said no. Damn shame she played it cool, too, because I wouldn’t mind to have seen her shed a tear or two after all that she’s done.

So… Kirino is the lucky winner, huh? Well, we could all see it coming somehow. I still think that Ayase may have been a better partner, but this is fine too. They know they can’t get married, they know they can’t even live a normal life together because of their parents and the surely couldn’t possibly keep such a relationship a secret for long. Still, that kiss of theirs was beautiful!

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 16 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.58_[2013.08.19_23.10.17]The only thing that I am really disappointed about is Manami’s confession. It was so painfully obvious that she had a major crush on Kyousuke, yet they choose to make her confess at the last minute, just like Kanako. I could understand it in Kanako’s case, but it was a lot harder for me to swallow when Manami-chan did it.

Anyway, it has been broken. That thin, invisible line between legal and illegal, moral and immoral. The two siblings finally ended up together after all. Did you know that there were many people against another season? They thought that it would encourage people to have immoral relationships with blood relatives. How stupid is that? I’m just glad it ended this way. Well done!

Oreimo 2 episode 13

I really wish I could speak to the creator(s) of Oreimo right now. I just want to ask one simple question; could this ending suck any more than it already does? I would really like to know that. I really do.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.11_[2013.06.30_23.34.22]I have no idea what went through their minds as they used the final episode to show us a bit more about Kirino’s past. I love that character, I really do, and I would love nothing more than to get to know her a bit better, but to have waited for the final episode to show this… Absolutely unacceptable!

I honestly believe that this was the type of episode that you’d want to see during the sixth or seventh episode. You can’t use the final episode to dive into a certain character’s past, because you already know that you’re just going to raise more questions about the aforementioned character. How absolutely stupid…

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.13_[2013.06.30_23.34.59]The one thing that bothered me most about this episode is that last week’s episode never really got explained. Remember how Kyousuke rejected Ayase because he already likes someone else? Whatever happened to that? The show ended without explaining any of that. What in the hell was the point of any of it?

I am truly, truly disappointed. I can only hope that this was some kind of cliff-hanger-attempt to make us want to watch a third season, which I really do, but I doubt that. Let’s face it; Oreimo barely got a second season. Oh wow… This really made my weekend less enjoyable. The Japanese and their horrible endings… Unbelievable.

Oreimo 2 episode 12

No. Absolutely not. I refuse to accept this episode no matter what. I can already see the ending and I must say that I don’t like what I’m seeing here. It’s stupid, disappointing and kind of pathetic. God… Why are you doing this to us, Japan?

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.12_[2013.06.23_22.45.58]It was going so damn good, why? Kyousuke had obtained a place for himself, a place where no adult would bother him. A nice little place where he entertained girl after girl. It even got to a point where they were all fighting over him. All of them, including the cute Soari, wanted a piece of him. Kyousuke has got to be the luckiest guy in all of Japan to have so many beauties fight over him.

It ended in a battle between all of the girls with Kyousuke as the prize. Who was going to take care of him? Who was going to his place and clean up every single day? That was their prize. That’s when Kirino decided that it had to be Ayase, because Kirino was under the impression that Ayase really disliked Kyousuke. Poor girl…

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_22.20_[2013.06.23_22.47.12]Ayase came by every single day. She cooked, she cleaned and she even ended up taking a show there. I smiled, I cheered and I laughed as their days went by. I shot out of my chair with a huge smile when she finally confessed to him and I fell down shocked when he turned her down. So many emotions… Why in the hell would he do that?

I just cannot believe that Kyousuke is still hung up on Ruri, a girl who dumped him and ran away without saying anything. He could he possibly love someone like that? How could he possibly see a future with someone that broke his heart, ran away and shamelessly came back after he had to chase her to another city for answers? I really do not accept it!

Oreimo 2 episode 11

Oh come on! This episode should’ve aired three weeks ago already. Why is it only happening now? The door to a world of untold possibilities has finally been opened this week! Let’s face it; this was a long time coming.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.02_[2013.06.17_23.07.57]Daisuke, Kyousuke’s old man, basically kicked Kyousuke out of the house for the time being. He thought it would be a good idea so that Kyousuke could focus on his studies. He thought that giving Kyousuke an apartment, a place where he can hang out with girls without having to worry about adults, would help him study for his exams.

I thought for sure that Kirino would be the first one to show up, I really did. Imagine my surprise when Ayase shows up with the corniest excuse you could possibly imagine. It just goes to show that Ayase is finally serious about him, that she’s finally ready to make her move. It’s about time something good happens again.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_21.25_[2013.06.17_23.08.50]The one thing that I didn’t like was Ruri’s appearance. I cannot believe she’s still going after Kyousuke after all that she’s done. She must have balls of steel or something. She showed up at his door with a packed lunch, hoping that she could eat it together with him. I’m sorry, but when you dump a guy like she did then you know it’s over.

I have high hopes for next week’s episode. Kyousuke has his own place now and Kirino would be able to resist visiting him soon, I’m sure of that. I can only hope that Kyousuke picks the right girl this time, because I don’t think I can handle another disappointing relationship like that. It’s bad enough that Ruri still shows up, but seeing it happen again would be too much.

Oreimo 2 episode 10

Hmm, what a confusing episode this turned out to be. It’s like the story is going in circles right now. It sort of reminded me of Amagami SS, a show where the protagonist dates all of the girls one by one, but I’ll get to that later.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.37_[2013.06.09_23.28.53]Say whatever you will, but at least one good thing came out of this; Ruri is no longer Kyousuke’s girlfriend. I’m glad about that, because she just doesn’t deserve him.  You dumb your boyfriend, leave town without saying anything to anyone and then, as if that wasn’t bad enough, you give him a shitty explanation when he actually shows up in order to find out what happened. No, she doesn’t deserve him.

Does this mean that Ayase does? I have no idea. I got to admit that I never really saw Ayase as girlfriend material for Kyousuke. I should’ve known better. Ayase is a lot like Kirino, so I should’ve been able to make that connection. I never really got to that point because of the way Ayase treats him, but I guess she’s just tsundere like that.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.39_[2013.06.09_23.29.52]I always saw Ayase as a friend of Kyousuke (at best). They only talked to each other because of Kirino. I should’ve known better, I should’ve realized that Ayase was slowly falling for Kyousuke’s… charms? I wanted to say manliness, but I don’t think I could ever use “Kyousuke” and “manliness” in the same sentence. That just doesn’t work.

Right now I’m hoping that Kyousuke takes control for once. I hope that he will be the one to ask Ayase out, that he will be the one to take charge. He’s been too passive for too long, it’s almost like he’s a machocist. I’m pleased with the way things are going between him and Kirino. Now it’s time for him to get a real girlfriend, period!

Oreimo 2 episode 09

Wha-what? Ooooh~! They’re back together, how nice… F*ck off! Am I really the only one that thinks that the story just got raped severely? Have the decency to kill ‘it’ when you rape something that severely.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.39_[2013.06.02_23.27.39]Last week’s episode was ruined, period. Ruri had dumped Kyousuke, the guy she fought for, the guy that almost made her beg for love. It didn’t make sense. We all know that Kirino wasn’t okay with it, we all knew that even before they started going out. So what was the point of dumping him at that stage?

The only good thing that came out of it was that the relationship between Kyousuke and Kirino advanced to a higher level, a level where the two can share things more openly without having to worry about what the other person thinks, which was something only Kirino could do because of her strange hobby.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.04_[2013.06.02_23.28.25]Why is it that Kyousuke ended up traveling miles to find Ruri? The idea in itself is quite scary and it makes him sound like a stalker, yet I was somewhat moved. That all changed when he actually stood face-to-face with Ruri, after which she explained herself. Yeah… That made things even worse! What kind of bullsh*t excuse was that? I have never heard something so ridiculous in all my life, and that says something!

I’m going to say this once, and it’s something I thought I would never say; Kyousuke, dump that crazy little b*tch! She is no longer worth his time. She could never have been serious about him if she broke up with him because of something as stupid as that. The fact that she ran away without telling her friends about it proves how childish she is. God, what an aggravating episode this turned out to be.

Oreimo 2 episode 08

No! Please, god, no! This could’ve been a prefect episode! It feels like they made me watch something amazing, get my hopes up as I map out countless future scenarios, only to shove their fist elbow-deep up my ass at the very last second. Why?

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.44_[2013.05.26_22.54.14]It was like I was lured into it. The episode started out with a roughed-up Kyousuke on the couch and his cute sister there to patch him up again. That in itself was quite unusual but I didn’t seek anything behind it. I thought it was the same old thing with the same old characters, especially when Kirino walked away angry again. Nothing new there…

Then they started making me happy again by focussing on Kyousuke and Riri. I was happy for god’s sake! How could I not enjoy the sight of Ruri in that hilarious, yet cute white dress? She looked absolutely adorable. The only thing that was missing was a merry-go-round to put her in, but I guess that that’s going too far.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.43_[2013.05.26_22.54.56]Quite frankly, the speed in which they progressed amazed me. They had their first date, Kyousuke met her family and even Kirino was told about their relationship. That’s when things went south. Riri noticed that Kirino wasn’t really processing their relationship very well, and that it might cause problems later on.

It was the first time that I actually wished for Kirino to go back to America again. Ruri and Kyousuke shouldn’t have to break up over something like that, so why is it that Ruri seems to think differently? Why is it that she feels to need to break up with him now? Those last five seconds really ruined an otherwise perfect episode. Why, Ruri?

Oreimo 2 episode 07

God bless you, Japan! It took us nearly two whole season to get to this point, but we’re finally here! This episode should put an end to all that “incest” crap. There’s nothing wrong with siblings loving each other and this episode should prove that.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_04.31_[2013.05.19_23.12.33]I actually wasted half a bowl of microwave popcorn on this episode, you know that? I started watching with a full bowl but I barely ate any of it. It was exiting from beginning to end. How could it not be? It started right away with Ruri’s head-on confession, so I sat here watching with an open mouth and simply forgot that I had warm popcorn right next to me.

The most interesting part was when Ruri became even more aggressive and told Kyousuke what’s so good about her and why he should agree to go out with her. That’s really bold and uncharacteristic of her if you ask me. I never would have imagined her saying that, not in a million years. She often talks big but she’s clearly a very shy girl.

[HorribleSubs] Oreimo S2 - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.29_[2013.05.19_23.13.22]I quite honestly had mixed feelings when Kyousuke asked her to wait a day for him to give her an answer. He’s been thinking about her a lot, especially since she gave him a kiss on the cheek when he was about to leave for America. I understand that I could cause problems within their little group and that Kirino probably wouldn’t like it, but still…

Anyway, Kyousuke said yes. He gave her the best answer possible. I always thought that the two would be a great couple, plus Kirino benefits from it, because she gains a life-long friend this way (provided Kyousuke manages not to screw up their relationship in the future). I’m very interested in seeing how Kirino, Ayase and Saori will react to this news. Very interested indeed.
