This was a great ending for a good serie. I liked it from the start to the end.

9/10

Not 10/10 because seems they really rush everything in the last episodes, a whole 5 ending episode would have been much better but i guess the budget is what it is.

That's what I'm thinking. After all my concerns due to rushing of episodes (like Episode 12 with Ayase, or the beginning of 14) and missing content, in the end I don't have a grand solution other than saying the unfeasable: MORE EPISODES!

Ah, seeing Manami's angry face... That entire scene really reminded me of ...

First incest show I watched, the main girl wins. I actually thought back in first season that Manami would be the last boss and that she would actually win. Guess not.

I'm still bitter about episode 12. Can't wait for the bluray to watch and suffer from it again.

7/10

What a crappy ending to an otherwise good series. It had a conclusion that was horrible, which ended up even worse than horrible. The explanation for the incest route was just there. Then, in the end, the MC ends up with no one. From worse to worst.

Kyousuke was admirable throughout the series, but in the end, he becomes quite despicable. He goes with his crazy yells and movements every time he confesses his love for Kirino, and the story in the end felt like the author did not care anymore; just do whatever to finish this story. It is also reflected in the fact that Kyousuke did not care about anyone else either. It was a, "screw everyone. I'll just do what I want and you should just shut up and take it."

The ending closed up all the loose ends, even if forced and short. However, Kyousuke become pathetic, weird, and a little crazy. He didn't care about what is best for his sister or anyone else anymore. He only cared about his own desires. I have lost respect for him completely, even though throughout the series, I sympathize with him the most.

About the best scene in these last few episodes is when Ruri thrashes him in episode 14. He deserved every bit of it. In the end, Kyousuke is the real loser in all of this, as he essentially has lost everyone, as far as romantic relationships go.

That's a little harsh isn't it. If you read the novel you perhaps won't come to this conclusion. If you follow all the little hints here and there it sure isn't the case that the author didn't care anymore. As for him ending up with nobody, sure this is a possible viewpoint, but digging deeper I don't think that this is an appropriate description of his situation. In order not to write something I have already written, here is my interpretation of the ending based on the novel:

EDIT: Where did Kuroneko give Kyousuke a trashing?

Good finale to the series imo...

The series somewhat shows harsh realities in our world, although I won't talk about all of it, remember each character and I'm personally not surprised about their characteristics. I've met people who are similar.
Kuroneko:
Short but understandable if you get where the series is actually heading towards. And even then I personally found it to be good. The rain scene showed the harsh truth that not everyone has a happy ending with another person no matter how hard they try. It showed that it WILL hurt and no matter how strong a person is, they need to fall back on something (Ruri went back to her Kuroneko personality for the rest of the scene after the confession)

Ayase:
I personally found her and Kyousuke's interactions to be more comedic...until it was her time to shine. Her story shows how attraction just happens, we don't choose who we get attached to, it may even be the person you hated the most at first.

I really do wish they'd get their own happy endings animated...but I don't think it's gonna happen :\...

In the end, it seems like no one really ends up with anyone because of the deal Kirino and Kyousuke had, but then you remember that not every deal or promise is kept and cue the last minute between the two.

I'm not even sure to begin with these episodes.... I want to do a write-up, but that would just evolve into a rant rather than analysis. So I suppose I can do the short version

-Writing off each heroine as if they were on a checklist, each venting their frustrations, all being useless in the end
- Kyousuke being extremely obnoxious and selfish
- When Kirino's character actually changes in a noticeable way, that development is thrown in the garbage bin (in the most stupid way possible6
- The pacing felt weird in 16
-Many characters lack satisfying closure (I suppose this includes the school itself, as Kyousuke and Manami had obvious attachment to it), or get none at all
- Kirirno aside from (temporarily) lover her beloved Onii-chan didn't change at all
-More I'm probably missing

The part that was the best was Manami's talk with the two, the venting of her frustration really came off as genuine (through I'll agree with Kyousuke on this one that the fighting was not necessary). Though I wish they would've shown Manami's growing frustrations throughout the course of the series. There was some foreshadowing in episode 13 but that was about it.

But overall, very disappointing conclusion to an otherwise decent series.

Watching episode 14 but a bit confused. I thought ruri and kyousuke broke up already and been through all that, so why did he come there to tell her that?
also, when did he move back in?

He moved back in at the end of Episode 12. Remember, that last scene with the Ayase rejection was after he checked up whether he had taken everything with him.

As for break up, yes, they broke up. But in Episode 11 he told her he would give her the answer to whether they will get back together when he has sorted out things with Kirino.

If anything, the ending caused more hate on Kirino. WHY?!

Did you honestly expect people who have grown to dislike her over 1 3/4 season would change their opinion based on the ending?

I think that we, Kirino fans, are a minority here.

Also, anime-only viewers lack the details from the Light Novels which would give them a better understanding of the events. For someone who hasn't read the source material, the last three episodes may feel a bit too rushed and confusing.

Although, since the last volume came out I have the feeling that like 80% of the posters in this subforum sport Kirino avatars.

As the light novels, I do recommend anime-only watchers to take the time and at least read the last volume. In this series not everything is as clear as they appear and there are many little hints all over the place, the anime has a hard time picking up.

Good animated finale.

I loved the sad and crying expressions from ruri in the broken post light. Very detailed.
The fight with manami is also very intense. Loved the desperate and sad looks from manami and kanako. They portrayed it very well. Seeing the kiss scene in color and animated is a treat. I'm glad kirino is happy in the end. I don't care about the other girls but I guess they moved on. A good adaption by A-1 pictures.

Applause for Nakamura-san's voice acting.

Decent run, the voice acting was really good. Was happy with the series since I think that I barely had any expectations for it. Going along for the ride feels good.

The ending was lacking something and didn't really do a good job at bringing it to a close but then again, a lot of endings usually are lacking to be honest.

I do expect most reactions to be very polar on either end of the spectrum though.

My regret is that we couldn't see Kuroneko in that glorious swimsuit.

I do think Kyousuke is close to defeating Sakurai Tomoki as the Pervert King tho.

The really amusing thing imo, is that I'm watching these episodes on the same day that I'm going to a wedding.

Agreed. Personally, I found the adaptation of Volume 11 a bit lacking. Season 2, episode 13 doesn't quite convey the same message. Specifically, a very important conversation between Kirino, Kyousuke and Manami was left out and the reason for Kyousuke turning into a normal/lazy person isn't fully revealed. Also, the final conversation between Kirino, Kuroneko and Ayase from Volume 11 was sadly never animated.

In certain ways, the last volume builds upon those events and since the anime never shows them, those who don't read the LNs are a bit shortchanged. Kanako's role in the LNs is also a bit bigger so her confession isn't as much of a surprise there.
