1. Kirino "ditching" her otaku friends.
The way I see it it's just superficial lie said to Ayase, in order to maintain her image. I don't get how some people kept thinking that she's totally ignoring kuroneko and saori. They both know that Kirino tend to want to hide her hobby from other friends.

Sure she didn't mean it, and it was uttered in panic, but that doesn't change the fact it was insensitive of her to say it within their earshot. As understanding as Saori and Kuroneko were of the situation, her comments probably hurt all the same.

I can overlook her abuse of Kyousuke (), but I really hope she makes amends for that comment in the future.


5. the "lying" big brother in the title
Just what was she referring to in that word? The gentle friendly older brother or the perverted sis-con? The general consensus seem to be the later, that she sees right through the lies. However I think the possibility that the first option can be true is still good. Ayase knew nothing about Kyousuke other than what Kirino told her so far, "disgusting" and various other derogatory descriptions. It's easy to take those words with a grain of salt, however it's easier to use the "annoying big brother" as the scapegoat for Kirino's odd behaviour than to accept that Kirino is not what she thought she is.
Even if Kyousuke's "confession" is so outrageous, since she knew nothing about him it's still possible from her perspective that those might be true.

sorry for the long post, just want to clear up some common controversial points in this episode.

Yeah, I think you've said it all - Ayase calls him a liar because after thinking it over she realised his declaration of 'we collect the porn because they're a symbol of our forbidden love' was probably not true (judging by Kirino's protestations, maybe?).
However, she still blames him for turning Kirino to anime/porn and will be keeping watch in case it ever turns real (wincest )
