The 11th and penultimate episode of Ore no Imouto delivers generous service by way of both meganekko-moe and bashful meido moe.

Lest anyone have missed the widespread news concerning Ore no Imouto’s somewhat eccentric finale scheduling, it should be repeated that this is the second-to-last episode of the show that will air on TV.

The previous episode suggested little, and although a two-episode arc is essentially too short to set-up a proper series ending, even for a 1-cour show like this, many fans were likely to have watched this episode for clues as to what sort of finale the TV-ending “Good End” will turn out to be next week.

The eroge Kyosuke is playing at the start poses a silly question: “Take off megane / Don’t take off megane“.

The proper answer for any true otaku (as Kyosuke has increasingly becomed over the story) is a clear one:

Unfortunately, Kyosuke is still too amateurish in the ways of otakudom to remember to lock his door during break-time.

This week’s OP recycles much footage from the new scenes in last week’s, but does also have a fun fighting game parody stat screen, which gives a good reminder of some pertinent trivia on the cast.

Note that the age on this Kirino bio is different than the one seen before – the earlier one referred to her age in the latest novels (15), but she is just a youthful 14 years of age at this point in the story.

Aside from that, she hasn’t grown in any direction, upwards or sidewards, during the series’ run.

The episode contains much Manami, just managing to sneak in another big helping of her before the TV run finishes.

Kirino naturally doesn’t react well at the sight of her beloved brother with another girl.

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_10

Kirino of all people might be thought to understand Kyosuke’s decision to take such a moe meganekko home…

The little mini-supernovae are testament to Manami’s excellent potential as a housewife for a lucky future husband.

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_13

Of course, a protagonist bringing a girl into his bedroom is never a good idea – Kyosuke clearly hasn’t seen enough anime yet.

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_14

Note Kirino’s wolf-tooth.

Hopefully poor Manami’s pure heart isn’t being scarred by all this.

They were all girls wearing megane…

If only that was a real ero-manga magazine!

The “Part B” of the episode is introduced by this handsome invitation card from Saori to Kyosuke, with little kaomoji standing in for her three friends (from top to bottom, Kuroneko, Kyosuke, and Kirino.)

The top line on the sign on the rented party room, “Kyosuke’s Exclusive Harem“, is a good sign of the treats to come, but does draw Kyosuke a weird look from the receptionist:

Goshuujin-sama~

Saori‘s twin-tails are painfully good looking here…

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_23

Exasperated meido Kirino is a treat, too.

Having heard about Kyosuke’s megane proclivities, Saori poses gloriously:

Atypically shy and cowering Ruri completes the lovely spectacle.

Kirino is curious about one of Ruri’s appendages.

The ultra-fortunate Kyosuke gets to be entertained by the incredibly cute maids, including a showing of Kuroneko’s very own doujinshi art:

The look on Kirino’s eyes here is great…

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_37

Another beautiful shot – possibly the best of Kirino’s doujin.

Manami, made even more beautiful by the liberal application of some mysterious fluid to her body.

Ruri has a fun scene when she decides to fool around with Kyosuke.

You don’t need to hold back, Nii-san…

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_44

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_45

What’s the matter, Nii-san?”

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_46

Tearful Kirino makes for a lovely screenshot.

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_48

So do all three beauties, lined up here.

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_49

Kyosuke does forget his usual manliness, even if just for a short while.

This week’s ED is another rather plain one, with some epilepsy-inducing rotating scenery running in the backround behind a nice image of the three fujoushi, as a fun seiyuu song アキハバラ☆だんす☆なう!! / Akihabara☆Dance☆Now!! by three’s seiyuu plays.

A zoom-in on Saori clutching Kirino’s chest.

The Akihabara ode has some picturesque images from the otaku heartland, such as Tora no Ana’s Akiba store above.

Inside of said Tora no Ana.

Gamers, whose proper name apparently couldn’t be used in the show.

The latest of Ore no Imouto’s excellent ED art is done this time by ワダアルコ / Wadarco, whose personal site can be found here.

ore_no_imouto_ga_konna_ni_kawaii_wake_ga_nai_episode11_56

“There’s no way my little sister’s life counselling can end like this!” is a good title for next episode, as Kyosuke is quite correct that it will not exactly “end” just then.
