Worst episode ever.
At this point Kirino slots up nicely as “Worst anime character ever Number 2″ right under that asshole Lynn Kaifun from Macross, except Kaifun is actually a good character and Kirino is just the crystallization of everything wrong with Otakus and Otaku culture.
0/10 shit taste gtfo omgz hurrrrr
We may not always agree on everything Scamp, but at least THIS is something we can agree on.
10/10 Best TCD post.
Cue a bunch of Ayase fans cursing you out for how wrong you are.
Implying there are such things as ‘Ayase fans’
I know a certain individual who has Ayase as his Skype picture. I believe his name rhymes with Devo.
Kuroneko is just Ayase-lite.
I’ve got the pitchfork ready.
I never thought seeing a 0/10 score here. hahaha
BAHAHAHA Best post on this site
Kuroneko’s hat is a better character than Kirino.
The faded hut to the right of Kuroneko is a better character than Kirino
Kanji credits to the right of Kuroneko are better characters than Kirino.
The most concise post ever.
I expect some……oh wait the tag! Why wouldn’t I realize it sooner?!
As someone who hasn’t finished S1 and never will, I laugh at your suffering.
I thought it would be hilarious if I blogged season 2. I’m starting to regret it
Dafuq kind of hilarity were you imagining when you conceived this idea of yours?
Great post, great tag. Needs more Kuroneko damnit.
Yandere >> Chuuni tsundere
Ayase is not a yandere. She is a fake-yandere. One who tosses out a few lines out-of-character that sound yandere-ish rather than an actual yandere. It’s a trait bolted onto her character because they realised she had no personality and ‘yandere’ was still open.
The whole point of yanderes is the tease, the fear…no the actual murdering. That’s why yanderes like Ayase from Oreimo and Sawa from Tari Tari are vastly superior to ones like Sekai from School Days.
That’s if you fetishise them rather than make them interesting characters. It’s a tease rather than a trait. Kuroneko is not my favourite character because I want to bone her. She’s my favourite because she has depth and develops over the course of the series. Ayase is for people who watch anime with their dicks and/or are pedophiles
>Ayase is for people who watch anime with their dicks
TIL there is another way to watch anime
You silly, that’s called hentai. You know, the type of anime where people do some actual fucking rather than some pathetic barely cock-tease like this
I’m insulted!…I only watch certain anime with my dick.
I actually found this episode pretty funn-
Forgot I have shit taste.
It was a good episode though, it will probably be the best episode besides the SPOILER OMITTED. The show is at its best when it targets otaku fantasies and excesses, and it did a good job parodying Love Plus and how character archetypes in real life tend to be more creepy than cute. On the other hand, no Kureneko.
See, it doesn’t ‘target’ otaku fantasies and excesses though. It lovingly embraces them. That’s kinda the core of why, deep down, I utterly despise this show
And it doesn’t embrace the parts that make being an otaku seem like a nice thing. The show treats being a horrible snob who spends thousands of yen on figurines as if we should respect them. Not “hey, Otaku are just like you and me”, but “Otaku are better than you or me”. As if being Kirino is something we should aspire to be, and that’s what makes this show more deserving of scorn than any other simple slice-of-life schlock.
I went to a store that sells animu merch for the first time today and watched this ep of OreImo there. I am never going back.
Yeah, that’s like a restaurant where the waiter puts dead rats on the steak.
Well, now i just wait for bakacast so i can hear you and dusty pulverise it.
And kirino is not the worst character in the show, it’s easily the parents of the kyousaka household, they dote on kirino alot and more or less ignore kyousuke as if he’s not really a part of the family.
They also let her be as bitchy as she is without much reprimandation.
Before watching the stupid flashback i want to ignore in episode one. The parents where very focused on kirino and left kyousuke feeling left out, making him jelous like all children become when they get little attension and while not it’s not really kirinos fault but rather bad parenting he got angry at her and started ignoreing her, and thats what started it.
Seeking attension his parents would not give he found a refuge at manamis family.
This also somewhat explains his attitude and compulsive helping habits, he want to feel as if he is needed and wanted, so him helping kirino is just as much for self satisfaction.
Ofc this is a homecrafted theory, that probably got some charred corners.
I don’t really see what there is to like better about Kuroneko than Kirino. They’re both pretty bitchy imo — though as the commenter above said, it’s not really Kirino’s fault, so the main thing to hate about her would be, as you have stated before, the way she is basically a pedophile otaku in a teenage girl’s body (which admittedly is pretty bad), but to each their own I guess. Personally, the character I like least is Kyousuke, though. God do those bland harem everylead types get on my nerves. Also Ayase.
Kirino seems strangely entertaining as of late actually, I don’t know… maybe that’s just me. I think I’ve gotten fooled by her outward cuteness.
