So why does she like loli eroge so much? I want to like this show (6 episodes in) but Kirino is unsettling me. Is it ever explained?
Because she's a middle-school girl that's into loli.
I have a hunch that she's deeply fucked in the head.
I try to be open-minded about interests and stuff but Oreimo leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth, probably because they paint it in a light-hearted way. Call me a moralfag or whatever, but that's how I feel.
Because otaku can relate to her. Seeing cute girls into the same perverted shit they are makes them feel warm and fuzzy.
Skip the series and read these doujinshi. The MC's dad fucks and NTRs the entire harem. He fucks all the girls in front of the MC while he's forced to watch.
I suppose you're right, but can you at least see where I'm coming from? If it's some old creepy otaku I get it, but seeing a 14 year old girl deeply into it is off putting. That's all I'm saying. I know that's not really fair, but I'm just being honest with how it makes me feel.
I'm going to finish watching it because I actually like Kirino and the other characters a lot, but at this point I really want the show to delve into her psychologically.
Because otakus like it and it makes them feel better if a cute, popular girl does too
The author's reason is some stupid shit about how little sisters and brothers love each other in those games which is supposed to mirror her relationship with her brother
my sister who's 20 has numerous dakimakura and anime figs, she also plays mobage like love live and calls some characters in there her waifu
girls can be perverted too you know? hell, most are way more perverted than men
Pretty much this. Kirino is not really a character, she is just the embodiment of all the garbage the otaku are obsessed with, conveniently assuming the form of a young girl.
She's actually just some sweaty, filthy, fat neckbearded sperglord.
Alright, fair enough. I don't mean to come off as a close-minded asshole, but I'm also not going to ignore my feelings. Maybe they'll change.
I mean, going by my own experiences, I've never been into loli whatsoever, but I was into 2D as early as I can remember.
Didn't Kirino win because the author was forced? Like he recieved death threats or something. Anyway, I always wondered why would anyone be scared of otaku, I mean they are like the most beta males in the entire planet
The explanation given was that she self inserted as the imouto. That makes no sense of course, seeing as she had fallen out with her brother years ago.
Realistically it's just to appeal to otaku and also to get people talking about it.
>That makes no sense of course, seeing as she had fallen out with her brother years ago.
She still loved him all that time. It's when they start talking again when she realizes that he's a piece of shit.
And then she falls in love with that piece of shit.
She didn't fall in love with the lazy piece of shit Kyousuke at the beginning of the series, she gradually brought back his old confidence and came to accept that he's not the amazing onii-chan she once thought he was but a combination of his boring and reckless self.
Just watch the episode with the IPod recording again, I think it's the second last.
>Just watch the episode with the IPod recording again, I think it's the second last.
You seem to be agreeing with me above so I dont see why you replied with this. Kirino idolized him as a child then they fell out and she later fell in love as he helped her with various things.
She always loved her onii-chan. The shitty side of him that Manami made is what she hated. She ignored him completely because Manami a shit and watch episode 13 again.
>Kirino idolized him as a child then they fell out and she later fell in love as he helped her with various things.
There's two sides of Kyousuke. She always loved one and hated the other until like halfway through the story.
I worded that poorly, she never stopped loving the idolized version of Kyousuke and therefore hated what he had become. Over the course of the series she came to accept that her image of him was wrong and she accepted that she loves Kyousuke for who he is and not for who she once wanted him to be.
Nope she's just socially retarded about her feelings. She bottled up the feelings she had about her brother. Whether they be the hatred for the unambitious side of him, or the love for him from before.
She's basically just fucked in the head.
>Ah…where should I begin…
>Um, although I think that because it's me, I should understand, but I recorded this for myself in order to never, never forget today's thoughts.
If I forget about today's thoughts, then I'm no longer myself.
>If the one who is listening to it is no longer myself --- although I think it definitely won't come to this --- please listen to my voice and remember.
>This feeling of absolute, absolute non-acceptance.
>This feeling of absolutely not losing.
>And about the onii-chan that I love the most.
>Have I become an adult? Or am I still in high-school? What jobs have I taken? Am I able to run as fast as onii-chan?
>Have I become like onii-chan, a cool and gentle onee-chan?
>Have I made onii-chan admit defeat --- made him praise me 'Kirino you are amazing"?
>Now I am absolutely unable to do that --- if someday I could, then I would be happy.
>Very, very happy.
>Starting from today, I will strive to achieve this dream.
>Although it would be very unlikely, but I will definitely reach my dream --- I have made up my mind.
So what you're telling me is after Kyousuke treated her like shit, completely changed his personality, and she had virtually no contact with him for several years that she she was still in love with him?
Yeah that's a pretty common thing to be honest. Lots of people who love someone will continue to love them no matter what they do. It's why we have psychopaths who stalk celebrities and think their both in love.
Because she's retarded and doesn't understand the feelings she has towards him. She also wants to block out her feelings for him.
Best way to stop loving someone is to pretend they don't exsist but that doesn't work for her.
Ignore the image, just look at this.
This is really all you need to know. In fact, you could just cut it off at "Because she's retarded" because BOY IS SHE EVER.
Seriously, who the fuck would ever fight for this girl? She's a 2/10 at best. I'd rather fuck Asuka's dead corpse with Shinji screaming directly in my ear than put up with her for a nanosecond.
she wants to be the loli you dolt
she's self-inserting herself as the loli and her brother as the guy that fucks the lolis in the ass
