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.
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.
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!
