Or a sign she'll just take it out on Kyousuke later, heh. Since the series is ongoing, I doubt he's seen the last of the life counseling that's plaguing his life. But it is good to see him catching a break for once.
Possibly Though in Kirino's case, she probably knew about it before hand. Kirino and Kuroneko had been fighting during the novel, but they made up after a lengthy phone call. The day after is when Kuroneko confessed. Kuroneko is the type to be extremely straight forward, so I'm sure she told Kirino what she was going to do. The fact that they made up regardless might be a sign that Kirino gives her blessing.
Somehow, that makes me feel like that'll only make things worse for him, heh. Manami won't like it, Kirino certainly won't like it... though Manami does strike me as the type who'd want Kyousuke to be happy regardless.
I know a couple things about the novels (like Kuroneko's sister crushing on him and such) but sure, go ahead. Reading a spoiler still is nothing compared to seeing it for yourself, so I try not to mind spoilers too much.
Seriously. She's cute and all, but god damn. The joke me and my friend have running (as I'm running a commentary to him) is that every action of Kyousuke's pretty much digs him a hole getting ever closer to America.
I really hope he gets some hellishly awesome karmic reward for all the crap he's put up with. I'm on episode 8 now, still need to d/l episode 9...
