A synopsis on Oreimo 2: Kyousuke Kousaka is a high schooler who  has been leading a quiet, humdrum life. However, his life is turned upside-down when his little sister, Kirino, comes to him for “life counseling.” It turns out that Kirino, a well-rounded winner in life, has  many otaku-ish hobbies and loves anime and games. Kyousuke sincerely takes on Kirino’s request to  tackle life counseling. And so, as more and more people get involved–including Kuroneko and Saori  Vageena, whom Kirino met via social networks; Kirino’s friends, Ayase and Kanako, and Kyousuke’s  childhood friend, Manami–changes to their icy cold brother-sister relationship begin to appear. After  they overcome the crisis of Kirino suddenly leaving to study abroad, what kind of craziness will her “life  counseling” cause next?

“We are very excited to host the world premiere of the Oreimo 2 final episodes at Otakon” says Hideki  Goto, the president of Animation Business of Aniplex of America. “We would like to thank Otakon for  this opportunity to watch the finale of Oreimo 2”
