The official website of the Oreimo anime series confirmed on Monday that the anime will have eight Blu-ray Disc/DVD volumes and revealed that the last two volumes, like the previous ones, will contain two episodes each. However, the television broadcast run is listed as ending on December 19 with the 12th episode, "Ore no Imōto no Jinsei Sōdan ga Kore de Owaru Wake ga Nai -Good End-." (The 12th episode is on the sixth Blu-ray/DVD volume.) The seventh and eighth volumes will ship on June 22 and July 27, respectively, of next year.
Update Aniplex producer Atsuhiro Iwakami confirmed on Oreimo's official website that the series was announced as a "15-episode production" at the "Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai Festival" on Sunday, December 5. He explained there are two versions of episode 12, and that the story will branch in the middle of episode 12. One of the versions, the "Good End," will be the final episode of the television broadcast. The other version of episode 12 will continue the story, which will end at episode 15. While the timeframe and other details of the unaired episodes' streaming remain completely in the air, the staff will strive for a release without long waits like Bakemonogatari's.
