But if it's only marriage like you said, then it would mean that it wouldn't be a crime to them to have sex and a relationship even if the society learn about it. Of course, it would be undesirable for that to happen even if it isn't a crime there as there is the social stigma, but that's still better than the risk of being arrested.

And about being easy to hide it, it does depends on what kind of job / role in the society they are taking. Is Kirino plans to continue as a model, as a world-level runner, doing any big jobs that she probably can do with how good her grades are, then it would be a bit harder to hide that (but then the same apply regarding hiding her otaku hobby).

I'm not sure how what happened in the PSP games really bares on what actually happened in the light novel.

Anybody knows what happened to the mangas of Oreimo and Ore no Kouhai? Since the licensing, it seems as if the originals entered on hiatus or something...

I'm rather curious how many manga adaptations of light novels actually get *finished*. Take a 10 volume LN series and turn it into a manga ... might just double the amount of pages? I''m following the manga version of Spice&Wolf and it has years to go at the speed it is going to cover the contents of the series.

There was an interview of the author stated that he wanted Kirino to be happy as quite similar to the PSP If route. You can search for the translation of the interview in this thread.

They seems to go really slow pace, plus being low priority like being serialized in monthly magazines (and monthly mangas are so painfully slow).

In Oreimo's case, the manga, before going on hiatus, had 4 volumes which adapted the first 3 volumes of the novel. it had 26 chapters, so around 9 chapter per volume, so one LN volume adapted each 9 months. But that was enough time sometimes for the writer to already have released 2 volumes of the novel.

And in cases like that, with how slow it is and with the LNs getting too much ahead (and i guess specially in cases where the LNs are big, with 10+ volumes) I think most mangas end up never covering the whole series because after some time the interest and hype in that series die down.

Love doesn't last forever, it's possible they stay by each other's side in one form or another and fall out of romantic love.

Once those more confident in their jap can clarify, it's saying that his next work may be related to ore no imouto.

That'd be nice, I really don't want Oreimo to end. Keep the universe alive!

In some cases love lasts forever. Of course, your opinion is it doesn't, but I'm on the other side of the fence with the ones that says it does .
Everyone has the right to an opinion, no?

Well, this fact is something only very few fictiounous love stories follow.

He isn't saying that stop loving each other tommythecat is providing the possibility of them growing out of romantic love, it might be late but as the say better late then never. It is entirely possible.

I worded that poorly, yes of course people can stay in love forever! I know some friends with parents still together all the way from HS.

I just mean from the standpoint of teenage crushes, how many of those last beyond and continue forever? Decidedly few but as SigUp points out fiction typically has "happily ever after" attached, that doesn't necessarily mean kids in their future but it doesn't discount the possibility

In my opinion. I think this love will last forever. Because kirino and Kyousuke have shut every possibility do date someone else. And there mutual feelings are the same till the end. The fact that the Author wanted to pull a if route like ending. But couldn't do this. But he wanted to do something with Kirino her feelings but couldn't do this clearly. Implies to me that he wants to let them be together forever. So I don't have a reason to think that they will break up. How will this love play out in the future?......... I don't know. Everything is possible....

Well in real life everything is possible and yes they could break up. But in my opinion: I think Oreimo is not that kind of story who deserves that kind of ending.

I am on the side of the ones who say: 'it will continue' (this love).

Well, in the end it is just my personal opinion on how I understand the ending.

Well, I'd say the fact that they've had strong romantic feelings for each other all their lives, and that the status quo at the beginning of the novels was only due to Manami's sabotage points to them being likely to be together forever.

I mean, we could say Kyosuke might move to South America and become a terrorist guerilla in the future, but there's nothing in the novels to support a plot development like that, either!

There is a real difference between romantic feelings and preteen sibling infatuation. Romantic feelings of love are pretty much none existent during that phase of life outside of kids liking each other and the only way they know that is expressed is through marriage because they want to be together forever(sound familiar). The elementary school promise of marriage is a pretty common trope in anime.

Saying there is no evidence to support a tamer relationship going forward for them is pretty disingenuous.

I couldn't agree more. If one thing is clear from the ending it's that neither of them is certain what the rules need to be or where they go from here. They're aware of the risks involved in openly pursuing a romantic relationship at their ages and they are not willing to bear those consequences. At the same time, they finally understand one another and can be happy together.

That doesn't answer the question of what they'll do once they're both adults, and it shouldn't because they don't know that answer yet. It's a huge decision and they have years to consider it first. I find this far more satisfying than an assertion that everything eventually works out. Their story as adults, whether they are lovers or not, is going to be complicated. It would only work as the plot of a new series, not as the epilogue to this one.

I'd read it.

The only real point they're highlighting in that little snippet is that he's working on his next story, that the Internet will be a major component in it, and he thinks it will also have an imouto character (though he doesn't say in what sort of role).

At this point, it's still very vague, but it's not implying it's related to this franchise/universe.
