The second season of the Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai (Oreimo) anime will adapt the plot of the original light novel series all the way through the final novel volume. The first season (including the series' alternate ending, "TRUE ROUTE") included the story up to the fifth light novel volume, and season two will continue through to the expected 12th volume. Both the final published novel volume and the second anime season are planned to end at the same time. The first 12 episodes of Oreimo were broadcast on television, with the four "TRUE ROUTE" episodes released online and on home video.
North American distributor Aniplex of America released a Blu-ray box set of the first season of Oreimo in January, complete with both the original and alternate endings. The new season is scheduled to air in April under the supervision of director Hiroyuki Kanbe, character designer Hiroyuki Oda and script editor Hideyuki Kurata.
