|I Can't Confess to Her|
|Romaji||Ore ga Kanojo ni Kokuhaku Nante Aru Wake ga Nai|
|Translation||I Can't Confess to Her|
After Kyousuke recalls Ayase kissing his cheek, he heads outside at night to meet with Kuroneko. As he runs to find Kuroneko in the park, he remembers those fond summer days with Kuroneko. Above the stairs, Kyousuke reluctantly confesses to Kuroneko that he cannot go out with her and that there is someone he loves. Back at Kuroneko's home, Tamaki wonders if Kyousuke is coming over for Christmas. Hinata could not answer her little sister's question. Heartbroken with Kyousuke's words, Kuroneko chuckles a bit and rips and shreds her book right in front of Kyousuke. All those plans, memories, and dreams are ripped asunder. She cries a bit until she changes her name to "Yamineko," one who rejects all love.
Next day, Kyousuke asks Kirino to go out with him on Christmas. When Kirino shoots him down, Kyousuke bribes her with eroge by pointing to page 145, Animart Akiba's Lovey Dovey Christmas Fair. Out in Akiba, Kyousuke and Kirino line up to buy that eroge game. The two find Kohei ordering homoerotic games with Sena, his little sister, in his arms. When Sena states that they are pretending to be couples to buy the merchandise, Kohei hugs Sena and tells the owner that they are siblings and a couple. Afterwards, Kyousuke tells Kirino he has reserved a hotel for them. Kirino freaks out that Kyousuke had reserved a love hotel until Kyousuke assures her it's a normal one.
Later that night, Kyousuke finds Kirino celebrating birthday for her eroge character. As it snows, Kirino tells Kyousuke that she is going abroad again. Kyousuke looks into Kirino's eyes and hesitates to confess to her. Upon realizing what Kyousuke is about to do, Kirino runs away from Kyousuke. Kyousuke loses track of Kirino, and he runs into Saori, her older sister, and Kuroneko, who are all in a car decorated with Moe characters. Saori informs Kyousuke that she was observing them because she was worried. As Kyousuke catches up to Kirino and confesses his feelings for her, Kuroneklo plays Kyousuke's confession (to Kuroneko) out loud via speakers. Kyousuke states that he turned down all those girls and remarks that he never be popular again in life. He explains that he was afraid that she will not accept him. Despite that Kirino would reject him, he has to tell her how he feels, and he asks Kirino to marry him. Shedding tears at Kyousuke's words, Kirino accepts Kyosuke's marriage proposal.

Kuroneko: "My name is The Angel of Vengeance, Yamineko! The one who shall deny all love in this world! Curses! Curses upon all those who love another! Curses upon the holy night! Curses upon everything in this world! May the iron hammer of destruction fall upon all who live fulfilled lives! Face the greatest curse of my entire life!"

Kyousuke: "I don't! I know you're out of my reach. You may be a pervert who plays eroge, but you still have your common sense... I was already prepared for you to call me a creep and run. I was afraid you might start ignoring me again after we finally started talking again. But still! But even if I know you'll reject me, even if I'm afraid you won't accept me, even if I know it'll really hurt if you dump me, I still have to tell you how I feel!"
