At this time it has not been translated into English. It shipped with the first volume of the Anime Limited Edition Blu-Rays/DVDs, and the basic outline of the content was posted earlier. The short story does not contain any information that adds clarity to the end of the novels, since that would be a spoiler for anime-only viewers.

Did not realize it was discussed to death already. I only came across that today (I haven't really been keeping up) and thought it was a pretty good read into how the story turned out to be how it is.

Ah, okay, well here's a link back, and you can see the resulting conversation in context. (Understandable that it's hard to find things in this giant thread.) It is a pretty interesting interview, and provides a bit of extra support in terms of how to interpret the plot and why things were written in the way they were.

Can this series be considered as a Harem? For me it is no harem as one chapter/episode can't justify that claim.

The term has very broad usage. Some people call a show a "harem" any time it has three or more characters presented as "possible love interests" to the protagonist. And in that broad sense, you could arguably consider it a "harem show" pretty early in the work... if you recognize that all the girls are being presented as love interests (which started becoming clearer in Volume 5, if the reader didn't recognize it earlier). Volume 10 is where they really start making it obvious that the girls are "fighting over him", but this is basically the collision of a lot of elements that had previously been building on different fronts. That volume/chapter only happened because of all the elements introduced beforehand, and to serve as a catalyst to put an end to the "race". (The three final volumes are all part of the "closing arc".)

In other words, I'd say it's as much of a "harem" as pretty much any shounen romantic comedy is, since a key point of the story is which of the multiple available/willing heroines the protagonist will fall in love with and "choose" in the end. But in the stricter sense of the word, the story isn't really *about* Kyousuke and his "harem", but actually about Kyousuke and Kirino's relationship, with the other elements layered around it. Pretty much all the other characters and elements are there to draw out an aspect of Kirino and Kyousuke.

^The only character I feel was his ''love interest'' was Kuroneko since she openly admits her feelings, many times throughout the series and novel. As for Ayase, she lied to herself even though she took interest for him since the beginning and just started to show some interest in like her story in Volume 9 and clearly Volume 10. Manami was never the subject of love interest as Kyousuke says that he treats her as a ''grandma'' and nothing more. Kanako, with her straight forward confessions, was not in the ''race'' whatsoever. Well, for Kirino, I think he actively begins falling for her in Volume 8+ and she is the only person realistically he ends with(which he did) since the show rotates around their relationship in a sense and not Kyousuke getting together with any other girl. Its just like you said, they are there to help develop them.

I don't think it's necessarily a question of whether or not they ever "had a chance" from a story-telling perspective. Many shounen romantic comedies have a "harem" of heroines, most of whom never really "have a chance" but still show interest in the protagonist. (In fact, in most harem anime, there are usually a number of "harem members" who really stand no logical chance at all, but are there to arguably "fill out" the harem with different personalities/tropes.) In a different story, either Kuroneko, Ayase, or Manami could easily have been Kyousuke's main love interest, as the foundational elements were there -- as were explored in the PSP games. Saori and Kanako would need more development (particularly if you're thinking of the anime that cut a lot), but it's not that far-fetched... again, in a different story.

Anyway, I think the key is that you're trying to define if it "is" or "isn't", but it's really a matter of degrees. It has some harem elements for sure, but I personally wouldn't call it a "Harem LN/Anime" because it's not the most descriptive term for most of the content. (When people think "harem anime", they're usually thinking more like To Love-Ru, and this really isn't like that.)

I think it somehow says that the anime will go with the Megane ending(Manami or so) which is nonsense. The synopsis of the last episodes say otherwise of course and I really think this is to get people hyped. The premiere is in 9 days so we got to wait.

It's just G's Magazine playing a bit of a game. They have a little section to describe their editorial "predictions" of the various possible endings (not really seriously -- just for fun), but of course it's silly because they already know exactly how it's going to end (even if it were different from the source), so there's no point in them making "predictions". But they're trying to do it in such a way that doesn't actually give away the ending and keeps the "surprise" for those people who haven't already been spoiled. (And then when they get it "wrong", next month they can be like "oh, what a surprise ending!" even though they already knew it. )

Anyway, it is by no means some sort of hint about what's actually going to be in the anime. G's has this sort of "filler" content in their magazines all the time, and they're not trying to pass it off as any sort of official hint or guidance. 2ch and Yaraon are only pointing it out because it's provocative.

Its ''Kyousuke's'' somehow confession scene although I think its from the Manami's confrontation. It was at the Oreimo festival just a week ago.

Um, the other person was the seiiyu for Saori. I think it's just something funny for that festival.

EDIT: The other video of Hanazawa Kana and Taketatsu Ayana was pretty funny. With Hanazawa Kana as Kuroneko doing that Kirino "Akihabara!" at the end.

Unfortunately, Ayase's route ended already in the anime, since she got the NO from Kyosuke.

Well, how did you come to that conclusion? Kuroneko clearly states that she will never be with Kyousuke and he rejected her. As for them agreeing not to continue this relationship, the epilogue states otherwise.

Kyousuke emphatically shut down the door on every other love interest. It is stated multiple times, that the bridge behind him was cut. So, I really can't follow your thoughts there.

Woah, just noticed my reply completely vanished. To repeat myself:

@Wilshere, not sure if you're saying the epilogue states they will or won't stick to the agreement. I think it suggests heavily they won't, but doesn't come all the way to saying it outright.

As for Kuroneko...what's said about her Pixiv account seems pretty at odds with her surface actions near the end, being pretty much exactly in line with the 'stick to them both' line she's been following since Vol 8 or earlier.

And...honestly, if the novels ends immediately on heavy implication of 'screw the big firm decision we made' it's hard to take anything else said about the future seriously, isn't it?

But, uh, either way, I didn't expect to find myself instantly on the defensive from multiple fronts about such a silly 'what if' post. :P

I'm sure you are missing a whole lot on the epilogue. Come on, he bought her a ring and,well, kissed her which resulted into more ''life counseling''. If you know what that term really means for both of them, it won't be necessary to get it approved by the author twice.
