Oh hell yeah, Hachiman finally showing his true powers!

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru

Oh shi—–

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru

Oh-em-gee, this amazing, terrible reinterpretation of the 「人」 kanji!

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru

Fucking ICE BURN there A++

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru

Ahahahaha these two sisters. Even Yukino broke her facade.

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru

Holy shit, she’s smiling at Hikagaya!

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru

( ゚д゚) whoa, she’s… looking forward to seeing Hikigaya!

What can I say, Hikagaya’s burn was just fucking amazing. In one fell swoop, not only did he stick it up to that bitch Sagami for Yukinoshita, he also united the efforts and motivation of the festival committee, at the cost of vilifying himself. Plus, he also raised back Yukinon’s affection points for him hahaha.

Too bad for Yui though, sigh. What a good girl she is, even willing to hold back herself so that Yukinon can get on the same standing with her…. T_T

Also, fuck dat Totsuka NTR.

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru

DAMMIT, HAYAMA, I THOUGHT YOU WERE A BRO!

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru

Poor 8-man, IT COULD’VE BEEN HIM ON THE STAGE THERE.

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru

Damn you fujoshi! DAMN YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!

Two more episodes to go, how will Hachiman further kill his social standing?!

    This anime desperately needs more Nee-san screentime, just like Hyouka did.
    Otherwise it gets too hard to recommend the anime if the mood is serious all the time. Yet, that’s the point the anime tries to make about life isn’t as rosy or exciting and ideal as you would wish.
    Speaking of which, how would you recommend such heavy dialogue slice of life anime like this?

    No mention about how Yui tricked Hachiman into dating her?

    Oh yeah, that part was cute too.

    I wouldn’t recommend it anyways, most people have nearly no patience and/or mindset to accept and enjoy shows like this. If it’s not instant gratification, it’s shit for most people.

    This series is right up there with Monogatari, as far as my favourites go now.

    Aww man I just love Hikigaya! His interestingly pessimistic attitude! How he always (unintentionally) drives things forward!

    Quite cool.

    Even though I can’t help but wonder about the stuff that got left out from the novels, for whatever reason, it doesn’t feel like anything is missing. I wonder why.

  8. What? Said,

    June 15, 2013 @ 8:29 pm

    Because the stuff missing from the novels aren’t connected to the main characters at all. Plus they involve Chuuni, Saki, Saika and Sensei which are irrelevant side characters anyway.

    “Let me show you how to change the world.”

    …Sometimes I think Hachiman might be scary if the Death Note fell in his hands. He’s the type that wouldn’t mind getting exiled from society for the sake of making the lives of others better.

    This is how you do the rape in anime, Sunrise.

    And I wonder why you haven’t included the cap with Haruno’s expression during Hikki’s explanation of his slogan, side to side with sensei’s face, it was golden.

    Also, Haruno and Hikki are clearly on the same wave, as she broke down laughing even before he started to elaborate. Really, if Haruno x Hikki could happen, we would see the world burn.

    The play was originally going to be Hacihman X Hayato, not Hachiman X Saika. So it wouldn’t have worked out for him anyway.

    Plus, he also raised back Yukinon’s affection points for him hahaha.

    Yukino’s affection points never dropped you know? The awkwardness was all Hachiman not willing to banter with her.

    Speaking of which, how would you recommend such heavy dialogue slice of life anime like this?

    I recommended this show, describing it as “unique” and “full of social commentary”.

    This is not a show to recommend to casual anime viewers.
    Someone who has developed a good taste in anime, thus is used to watching and have some patience, will be able to enjoy it more.

    Also, I’m sorry for being dumb, but I couldnt make out of what Yui was saying to Hikki at the part when she started saying:
    “Some people just won’t wait.” – who is she implying? Hikki?

    And then Hikki answered with:
    “Oh yeah? Who’d want those types waiting for them anyway? – What are those types? The impatient people, like Hikki himself? Is he saying it’s no use waiting for someone like him who cant wait? I dont get it…

    And then she said:
    “I mean they approach the other party themselves.” – Did she mean that because Hikki decided to help Yukino?

    I feel this is a very important part of the ep, so I need to make sure I understand.

    Thank you

    “Some people just don’t wait” was referring to herself, in that she won’t wait for Hachiman to approach her, she’s going to approach him. Hachiman misunderstood but figured it out when she indirectly asked him out on a date.

    I’m not sure what Hachiman meant initially when he said “Who’d want those types waiting for them anyway?”.

    “If it’s not instant gratification, it’s shit for most people.”
    Hahahaha! That’s surprisingly true. I enjoy anime in general so I watch anytime including the “slow and thinking” types. Unfortunately it’s hard to recommend anime at times because of the issue above where people don’t generally want to “wait”. Maybe that’s one reason why I tend to prefer RPGs (actually I lie. I love RPGs) due to watching how things play out over time.

    “Someone who has developed a good taste in anime, thus is used to watching and have some patience, will be able to enjoy it more.”
    Lol! I don’t think I have good taste in anime since I watch almost anything except for shows that has excessive ecchi fanservice. Can’t deal with them. But in general, I think it’s not about having good taste in anime to enjoy this show but rather have the appreciation and patience to watch and think about what you’re watching. People who just love instant gratification but are able to appreciate this show and enjoy it to an extent without instantly calling it shit.

    Hmm, you know, that thought about Yui not waiting crossed my mind too, however,

    She said she’d wait for Yukino, and then “But some people just wont wait” came after, so it’s probably not about Yui herself. That’s why I thought she was talking about Hachiman.
    But then how come Hachiman looks so calm when he talks after :|

    @Susu
    I thought the “Some people just won’t wait.” was referring to the way Hachiman dealt with the festival committee problem. Instead of waiting with Yui for Yukinoshita to seek help.
    Maybe after seeing how Hachiman didn’t wait, she herself is trying to be more bold in the expression of her feelings towards him, thus the implied date.
    Please do correct me if I’m wrong. ^^’

    Wasn’t what Yukinoshita had to say about the car accident the thing Hikki was interested in, but didn’t want to ask directly?

    I thought Yui showed some brass the way she set that up. You could tell she wasn’t exactly confident, but she pushed on, and got her results.

    And Yukino laughing! This episode wins.

  19. SuSu Said,

    Lol, Yukino laughing was an unexpected win.
    I had to replay that part XD.

    Hit my limit for screencaps.

    Yukino’s affection points never dropped you know? The awkwardness was all Hachiman not willing to banter with her.

    It felt to me it was the opposite, as more like she was trying to run away from him after she knew he knew who was in the car during the accident.

    I think it’s not about having good taste in anime to enjoy this show but rather have the appreciation and patience to watch and think about what you’re watching.

    Pretty much this, I don’t think of myself as having what most people would agree to as “good taste”. What matters to me most now, is that I enjoy watching the show, without having to pander to other people’s view. Part of that also comes with the enlightment that some shows don’t really impress at the beginning, but once the characters get fleshed out, things really start to get going. This show is a very good example of that.

    ———–

    As for the whole “Some people won’t wait” dialogue, I think it was pretty clear-cut.

    It first started with Hikki asking Yui the loaded question of whether they both talked about the car accident, but Yui answered she didn’t “heard anything about what you want to know”.

    Hikki then tries to deny he wanted to know, but Yui answers she actually wanted to. This leads to Yui declaring she’ll “wait for Yukinon” since she’s trying to get closer to the both of them.

    Of course, it seems to Yui that some people just won’t wait, which 8man obliviously answers something that shows he didn’t get it but Yui clarifies immediately that these people will approach the other party by themselves, which 8man immediately realizes Yui was talking about him.

    Of course, after that comes the honey toast part and then Hachiman just sets himself up with his whole “I can’t let myself owe you stuff” where Yui, despite her earlier declaration to wait for Yukinon, just couldn’t resist getting a small leg up since Hachiman himself “approached the other party.”

    So yeah, all those layers in this show’s dialogue. Phew!

    Well, I said “good taste”, but I didnt really mean it that way you know.
    I guess I shoulda said appreciation instead. These kinds of show have some more ‘culture’ in it than other shows, so unless you’re used to anime, you probably wont like it.

    About 10 years ago, if you told me to watch moe show like CCS, I’d have felt pretty disgusted by it. But now I’m totally fine with all the lolis and Japan’s unique moe designs.
    And thus, after getting used to their culture, I have more patience in shows beside typical shounen stuff.


    And about the conversation between Hikki and Yui,
    Thanks for clarifying that for me. I think I got it right; just had to make sure, since it’s important.

    I like Yui more, but both of these girls deserve to be happy. Sad thing there’s only one guy for 2 girls lol.

    Oh whatever, looking forward to that date ^^

    It felt to me it was the opposite, as more like she was trying to run away from him after she knew he knew who was in the car during the accident.
    It’s not just that he learned about her involvement in the accident, but also the fact that she was hiding that from him. Actually, it’s the latter that made the perfect image of hers in his head crumble. And when she was about to make an attempt to talk it out, Hikki pretty much blocked it, while clearly changing his attitude. He had an option to break the ice that had formed over the matter, but opted to put a clear distance between them instead. I’d say, Yukinoshita could do very little about the things from that point on, so it was about if and when Hikki takes a step himself.

    It also looked to me that in their dialogue with Yui, Hikki initially thought that Yui’s going to wait for Yukinoshita to get sufficiently comfortable with them so that she can bring up the accident matter herself, as he didn’t appear to be aware of rom connotations.

    Seems to be a mistranslation somewhere? In the scene where yui and 8 were talking, i thought she said something along the line of “I will be wait for Yukino, but some people are so hopeless that waiting doesn’t work, so instead I’ll move forward.” This is from the Chineseb fan so I could be wrong, but it makes more sense.

    @Kurogane
    Thanks for the clarification, to be honest the whole over-complication and dwelling over the accident event is sort of alien to me. After Yui saw that Yukonoshita’s car is the same car that nearly killed her dog, that was that really. So I didn’t make the connection and was missing the main cog creating the underlying tensions the whole time. ._.
    I blame deadfisheyes-kun, it’s hard to laugh and think at the same time.
