Okay , this one is better than the previous episode . The fact that i can actually laugh is enough reason for me to continue watching this show.

Oh, and the anime parody. That's hilarious. But , that's make me wonder if someone who haven't watch that certain anime can actually get the parody . From what i see, many giggle moments come from reference of certain anime and eroge. Unlike Ookami-san to shichinin no Nakama tachi which is playing with fairy tale everyone knows about , the decision to make reference to anime/eroge (especially if they using it too much) can only producee "I don`t get it" moment for those simply don't know about it.

Oh , and why is Kirino has School Day on her eroge collection ? From what i remember, she only have interest in imouto theme eroge , right ?

A reference drop.  I'm pretty sure the vast majority of her eroge collection feature real titles.  I'm certain I saw Cross Channel and Akane-Iro ni Somaru Saka in there as well.

I haven't played nor watched School Days but I'm fairly sure there's a loli "imoutou" type character in there.  Even if it doesn't match, how many of us have bought or rented a game or movie based on something we've heard or what someone told us and found out it wasn't that at all.  Maybe she bought it by mistake.  Not really something to force our heads around.

BTW, I brushed over the "nerd fight" in my post simply because I thought that kind of thing was fairly normal for western anime fans.  Ever browse /a/ for five minutes?  My tastes > your tastes this, elitist opinion that... etc.  Just figured that was how it went.

Shit, I still get into arguments with yaoi fans for wasting their time.

I lol'd hard at this.

What can you even reply to that? It was like walking into a dead end.

Ep 3

This is what Nogizaka Haruka should have been.

If this show has more episodes like this, I may actually change my impression for good.

This show is showing apparent signs of improvements. The first episode didn't impress me one bit. But after that enlightening nerd fight in the last episode and then this whole cat-out-of-the-bag in this episode, this show is not all about lulzy otaku-pandering. I can actually see how down-to-earth the characters and their dialogues are, and how genuine the relationship between Kirino and Kyousuke, and the friendship between Kirino and her otaku friends.

I can see that this show would be overrated by people with similar otaku hobbies, but now I wouldn't call it a bad show. I would acknowledge the merits now, especially when the scene with Kirino's dad is something real and credible. Kirino's dad is old-school, but he still has his senses. He's clearly not like some completely unreasonable and intolerant fathers out there who would kick his children out of the house.

And I can admire how Kyousuke sticks it up for his sister, even if it's for some morally questionable hobby or if it means to be a big pain in the ass towards his own dad. I know that the otaku references and content would interest a certain group of viewers, but I'm sticking to this show for the drama.

Okay, now I'm left with the same problem I had at the end of episode 2:  Now what?  The conflict has been resolved.  From here on out, what's the hook?

Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying this.  I'm not sure that I appreciated the drama of episode 3 like AC did.  I felt it was a bit over the top on Kyousuke's part.  Dad was making some fine and logical arguments while Kyousuke was making impassioned speeches about morality and weirdness and whatnot.  I found it hard to be on his side.

Still, he took one for his sister, and with how the Dad laid out the meaning behind such an activity, you'd think he'd have been in some serious shit.  But apparently Dad is allowing his son a lot more forgiveness while being on a destructive pathway that could threaten his daughter.  I'm just saying.  If I found out my son was interested in little sister porn and had a little sister who was a beautiful young model, I might have to lock him away somewhere...

AIC is really playing this safe. The original scene from the light novel is quite a lot more dramatic, since it involved
Spoiler for Hiden:
Kirino trying to attack her dad with an ashtray. Her dad then realiated by knocking her to the ground. Kyousuke then promised his dad that he will eventually throw all her stuff out personaly, in exchange for the dad to never go to her room. AIC changed this to Kyousuke lying to his dad saying all those eroges are his. I'm not sure why they did this change.

Now what?  The conflict has been resolved.  From here on out, what's the hook?

Well, this is a romantic comedy, after all...in fact
Spoiler for Hiden:
this will turn into a harem with slight suggestions of incest. Several characters you already know will fall for Kyousuke. In the latest light novel it's already quite apparent Kirino has feelings for her brother.

All in all, I can promise this story has a lot more to offer. I don't think it will disappoint you. It didn't disappoint me, at least.

I'm not sure if the original source material would've worked better in this context. The show so far has been somewhere between light-hearted comedy and slice-of-life, so to have such a dramatic scene (like the one in this spoiler) can leave quite a sour aftertaste. Having two or more disparate aspects within a show can result in a mess, something that Ookami-san and MM have fallen into.

@TIF

I do think that Kyousuke is overdoing his defense for his sister. It's even to the point that he doesn't make any sense and he's purely speaking based on passion, even when it's originally supposed to logically convince his stubborn dad (who's not that stubborn, anyway). But I think his unconditional defense for his sister takes precedence over being an ass toward his dad. Sure, his way of arguing with his dad isn't as charismatic as say, Takanashi's way of arguing with Inami's dad, but his intention is something I think is noble as a brother.

Well, I'm glad you guys are finally enjoying it! :D 

At one point or another this episode was a little too overdramatic for my tastes, but I still am really enjoying it.
 

I actually started my first eroge because of this show. xD Don't judge! (BTW, has anyone played Yume Miru Kasuri. My friend recommended it, and I hate the main character and want to complain to someone about it, lol)

Haven't read it myself, but I've heard it's really good.

Anyway, probably a good time to pimp my review of the OP Single.  More info on the main site soon.

I like ep 3 ...

Some scene is kinda overdramatic , but i think it's more interesting than any previous ep.
Keep it up and maybe this anime will become somewhat exceed expectation ...

I laughed at the video game. It's the cheesy kind of stuff that a handful of people actually enjoy in RL.

From this point on, the theme of the show is about the otaku lifestyle through the eyes of a layman (i.e. Kyousuke), with his little sister as the so-called tour guide to the journey.

Kyousuke's online chat reminds me a little about myself, especially my naivety whenever I chat online with someone I've never met in person before. You always tell yourself not to judge what you see on the monitor, but the thing is, it's just the human thing to do so. The lack of visibility is after all, one of the traits offer by the Internet.

And we have a compromising scene that, like Kyousuke quoted, seems to be straight out of an eroge... but this time, the girl is your little sister. It's awkward at its best, and if I were Kyousuke, I'd be flabbergasted.

The Summer Comiket scenes are quite a viewing pleasure to me; they don't necessarily feel like otaku-pandering scenes, and it looks like something more politically correct catered for the average viewer (which is a good thing).

Now, we have another person who knows about Kirino's double-lifestyle and this person has a connection with Kirino's brother. I wonder how things will turn out from here.
