Thanks for clarifying. I remember reading at one point Kirino asks Kyousuke to be her boyfriend. I think that was around the point where she was writing the mobile novel and after they went to that love hotel, nothing probably came of that but that's what I didn't like about this.

Nice way to put it.

I say there's a pretty damn good chance of Kyosuke's relationship with Kirino going beyond the sibling bond. The latest novel volume made it pretty obvious that Kirino loves him, and Kyousuke, while he doesn't understand his feelings yet, says he's unwilling to hand Kirino over to another guy. All we need now is for him to stop being so bloody dense and figure out how does he feel about Kirino.

you mean love as in romantic love? can you quote the pages so that I can go re-read them? what I see can be interpreted as a strong case of brother complex. and logically speaking, since this content is pretty mainstream and not age restricted and despite the fact that the characters are fictitious, I doubt the author will risk pursuing the incestuous route.

I woudn't know the pages, since I can't read Japanese and only read the summaries, but I remember a few examples that could indicate Kirino's feelings are stronger than just a simple brother complex:

Highly unlikely. With the most recent novel:

Spoiler for Kyousuke's current situation:


Yes, I know that went against how he feels about Kirino... I even ranted about it here on this thread after I finished that novel.

you're right about all these, but they don't indicate to me any feeling of romance.

of course we could stand corrected in the end. he might go for a vague open-ended ending that hints towards that route. but my guess is that, along the way, the author is trolling to boost his sales 8D

Egnlish trans of at least half of chapter 4 of volume 5, which covers the final episode of "True End" route (I'm guessing here), is done on baka-tsuki. next update will probably be in end Feb.
