"Ore Monogatari!!" or "My Love Story!!" episode 17

It's Christmas time!  Time for a karaoke party, naturally, right? Yamato and Takeo plan one out for their friends.  Turns out Yamato's friend Nanako sorta likes Takeo's friend Kurihara and its mutual.  In fact they had a date of sorts, but Nanako still isn't sure of Kurihara's feelings since he never officially confessed.  At the party, Kurihara acts weird and distant to Nanako, while even sneaking in a secret handholding, which just confuses and angers Nanako.  Yamato and Takeo pressures the couple to be together, but it backfires and just makes Nanako uncomfortable with the pressure.  Looks likes Nanako and Kurihara sort of feel a bit inferior to the lovey dovey couple and Kurihara is failing at winning Nanako over with an overt confession.  While being forced to sing a duet (which is the OP song which has some nice lyrics by the way), Nanako leaves the party.  Yamato and then Kurihara chase her.  The two girls are harassed by some thugs, but instead of Kurihara stepping in, he runs to get Takeo, who does scare off the thugs.  Nanako is more mad at this point since Kurihara didn't rush in to save her.   Yamato and Takeo realize they shouldn't have been intrusive in their matchmaking.  But Takeo still intrudes by telling Kurihara to "man up."  Kurihara ends up proclaiming his love by getting a star at the top of a large Christmas tree in the area that is said to guarantee a successful love confession.  He finally confesses and all is well.  In fact, so well that Kurihara and Nanako have already kissed by the next school day, which bums Yamato out...  Another cute episode that manages drama even when it doesn't seem to be possible because the main couple are so darn happy together, by including others' drama!
