That's the second thing that creeped me up the most. This kind of events in the plot gives a bad rep to Japanese culture, justifiably or not. Even if he don't consider the girl his real sister, the only reason he acts this way is him being a duche.
He really does make Hisao look competent.
As I said in a different topic here, Hisao is subtle, understanging, and a perfect gentleman when seated next to this guy.

All I know about YMK is that apparently, at some point in some route,a high school girl will be choked to death by two of her classmates and I'll think it's a good thing. bioenergoterapia
That was the bomb for me. That's when I considered for a moment not reading the story any further. Up to this point I counted four situations the cops should've been called over the events in the plot
, and most of all I realised the emotions the plot evoked in me reading was the lowest ones, resulting with nothing but anger. That was the point when I felt really stupid.
Not to death, but they come pretty darn close and yes, given the insane amount of dog kicking she's done up to that point, you probably won't feel much pity for her.
Well, I did. Not exactly a feeling of injustice towards the girl, but more of a general wrongness of the situation. The only thing positive in the whole mess, was the way how much it was unrealistic and phony (I mean the situation as a whole, the realistic rendition of girl's agony was terrifing).
It really made me appreciate how plausible the plots were done in KS. Not totally realistic, but just enough tinted with metaphorical for them to work, and kept to the ground most of the time.
And I know that as an European I have no right to complain about h-scenes in a Japanese eroge, but I found all the scenes unjustified, meaningless to the plot, prolonged too much and too obviously constructed with "crossing the list" in mind.
After plaing KS you could imagine devs brainstorming: "We decided it to be an ero. We should have erotic scenes. When, how, and why should they do it".
Then I saw with my mind a special division in YMK team, with a long list of fetishes the're gonna put into the game, not considering what the rest of the team are doing with the plot.
Yup, "buckets of the white stuff" was at the top of the list.
