I wonder what she needed to hide before letting Kyousuke enter her room...
I don't want her to turn out to be a stalker

Her eroge collection
That would at least make her more interesting.

Probably just typical girl stuff. I mean, if every girl in the world had to hide her eroge/doujinshi collection before Kyousuke entered her room, then I would begin to suspect that contact with Kyousuke spawns eroge in your room. Of course, that would be interesting in and of itself.

Contact with Kyousuke spawns a desire in girls to be his imouto, and thus a desire for imouto eroge. As simple as that

Something funny I've noticed.

Manami Tamura:
- height 160cm
- weight 50kg
sizes- 84 - 59 - 86

She has bigger boobs than Saeko from High School of the Dead D:

When I first read what Ore no Imouto was about, I had no doubt that the ending would include Kyousuke and Kirino in some (w)incest relationship but now that it seems to be avoiding that route, I can't believe that Kyousuke is letting Manami slip away. She obviously leaves him hints at the park, and my favourite Manami scene:
Spoiler for Manami win:

I'd love to see this develop into something bigger, but I highly doubt it seeing that there's so little love for Manami x Kyousuke and it's never the childhood friend Oh well, maybe in the PSP game...

The childhood friend never wins. It's one the Ten Harem Commandments, apparently.

Actually from someone else I recall reading that they won about 44% of the time if there was one in the series, but I have no idea who said that was someone here .

In harem series they don't usally win, but then that's kind logical. The childhood friend has a very big advantage. So that makes them good material to be the the main adversary for the girl who is actually getting the guy. But if they're actually the main they would win to easy.

Although it isn't my main pairing I like Manami enough and wouldn't mind if Kyousuke end up with her but I trhink her chances are low.

There's just ton of anime where the childhood friend wins.

Romance-wise, Manami has more progress with her relationship with Kyousuke than other characters. The power of childhood friend.

I don't see any harem at the moment for Kyousuke, so can't say that its a harem anime yet but the development does seem to be going their. He has Kirino and Manami so far, that's all I know.

Wow, I can't believe I forgot about Ai Yori Aoshi. That was one of my favorite manga when it was still being released. So maybe Manami does stand a chance. Though now that KuroNeko has entered the fray, who knows?

This post is kind of interesting in retrospect, seeing as Manami did have an incredibly important role in the relationship between Kyosuke and Kirino, to the point where we wouldn't have a story without her. Our understanding of the Ore no Imouto world was a lot more limited during the single fortnight this thread was active (poor Manami, nobody cares about discussing her), where even the first season was far from finished.

Well, the problem is that -- in the anime (not talking about the novels at all) -- she's basically not a main character for a lot of the story. Other than her one episode in the first season, she's sort of like "Protagonist's Best Friend A" for a lot of the anime. She's a sounding board from time-to-time and moves the plot in a few cases, but she's not really a central driver. Her role is about the same as Saori, all things considered, who sort of becomes "Protagonist's Best Friend B" except she's more on the side of the plot that's moving.

We did know from the get-go that there was some long-term bad blood between Manami and Kirino, and so it makes sense that this would come back at the end... but there wasn't really all that much to say about her between her character episode and now. Again, in the anime. So in that sense, maybe it is poor Manami -- we never really got to know her that well.

My comment about that image is brief (and rather angry), but I'll put in spoiler tags just to be safe.
