Ore no Imouto’s “Good End” quasi-finale has aired to the joy of fans, some of whom enthusiastically set about acclaiming it as the “best ending ever.”

Anyone following Ore no Imouto will be aware of the somewhat confusing continuity announced for the TV adaptation by now, but lest any have forgotten, a quick review here would be very handy.

The name of the alternate continuity’s ending won’t be known for some time, but this is apparently the “Good End.”

Mini-doses of Kirino’s cute friends Ayase and Kanako are included as the episode does its best to include at least a snippet of all the pertinent cast.

Actually a reasonable price for a First-Time Limited Edition Release of the new eroge Kirino’s pining for, “Onii-chan no Pantsu Nanka Zettai Nusundenaindakarane!!” (I Definitely Didn’t Steal Onii-chan’s Underwear!!), as often such games would easily be over ¥8,000.

Kirino’s ball-shaped head here is, in an odd way, moe just by itself, even more so as it gives her a good resemblance to her seiyuu Ayana Taketasu’s best known role as K-ON!!’s moesome guitarist Azusa.

Luckily, Kirino wears these short pants for much of the episode.

An impressive looking ita-bike, along with some posters for a game with a most promising name: “3D Custom Imouto.”

Kyosuke did not come to buy this “homoge”…

These fujoshi however did, including the Manami-lookalike.

Note the sign – this late-night sale is taking place in front of Gamer’s Akiba outlet.

Ruri and her sewing machine make a tiny cameo.

The English caption in the top right is a fun one: “I am very interested in elder brother’s undergarment.

Little Kirino enjoys her eroge, which perhaps was a Key game in some very heavy camouflage.

Seeing Kirino wriggle around in this pose for a few seconds is sure to be well received.

Loli Kirino.

Poor Kyosuke.

The actual ending is (conveniently!) pretty close to what was speculated at before, being fairly non-committal.

Were this actually an eroge, this would be the sort of ending received after generally being nice to all of the girls, but never seriously following just one or two’s path in particular – thus earning an ending that doesn’t actually leave the protagonist with anyone.

Manami, still looking lovely as always.

Kirino’s tongue!

The nice ED song is (naturally enough) a Kirino song, entitled Tadaima.

Kuroneko’s lovely little dance, which looks like her randomly trying outs bits of Ranka’s cute Nyan Nyan dance along with Popotan’s UmaUma.

Unfortunately, the earliest broadcast of Ore no Imouto didn’t appear to include a frame of the TV run’s final piece of beautiful ED art, but it does come from VOFAN (person site here).
