    Alas, Manami, t’was not meant to be. The curse of the childhood friend strikes once more. Farewell my love, and may you find happier times with someone who is not such a pathetic siscon.

      I don’t remember the last show I’ve watched where the childhood friend wins. Except Amagami SS, and even then it took a second season for Rihoko’s arc to get anywhere.

      While I can’t say I like Manami much after that episode, even she deserves better than Kyousuke.

    I’ve heard that through many interviews, Tsukasa Fushimi did in fact desire an incest ending with Kirino and Kyosuke, but his editor did not allow it since Oreimo is such a popular show and they cannot promote incest. So what the LN and anime did was as far as Fushimi could go, but he did in fact want an incest love ending, so in a sense, the ending we all saw was a lie

      Even Japan has a limit, huh…

      It’s nice to know Fushimi himself wanted one :D I suppose I can’t blame him entirely for what happened then. Though many of Kyousuke’s actions throughout the series were already very much incest-promoting. What really irked me at the end wasn’t so much the incest route itself, but the last-minute chickening out. Fushimi should have gone all out, Yosuga no Sora style! He could leave his name etched forever within the industry. I bet they would have gotten massive spikes in BD sales if they did an Episode 11 like YnS.
