You know, when I originally saw that episode, I thought Kirino's book getting animated was a ridiculous plot twist, but when I actually stop and think about it, there's a lot of commentary there. It's too bad the episode as a whole wasn't that enjoyable.

(There's also a certain irony in that this comes from a series that gave me one of the most annoying cases of trope driven character derailment I care to think of - the yanderification of Ayase.)
