Ahh... this anime. This anime.

I only recently heard about Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, and so I decided to marathon both seasons together since Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT just ended. All I can say is... I'm angry.

Don't get me wrong. I enjoyed both seasons greatly, which is the reason I'm angry. There was barely any movement in the plot between both seasons, and what was with that ending? I'm cool with leaving things open and all but that was just way too sudden and drastic with no explanation. If/when we get a season 3 (nothing is ever guaranteed when it comes to new seasons of anime these days) I really hope they finally mature the characters a bit and move the plot forward. While the light hearted games and some of the aimless episodes were fun, I don't think I can handle a 3rd season where nothing happens until the last episode.

Grr. And now I have to wait who knows how long for more of this since all of the light novels aren't translated (as usual).


What Yozora does isn't really that sudden if you think about it if that's what you are referring to, though it certainly is drastic. Towards the latter half of NEXT she became a wallflower at the same time Rika and Sena were making big waves between the revelation that Sena is not only an earlier childhood friend than Yozora but she is also "engaged" to Kodaka. Meanwhile Rika starts to become Kodaka's Jiminy Cricket making him face things his doesn't want to while at the same time showing how much she cares for the club(i.e. her tireless effort on the game system/movie cg).

I posted this a while back but it kinda shows how helpless Yozora feels at this point.

She's running away sorta like Kodaka did to her when they were kids and I'm sure this time she hopes that it will end differently, such as Kodaka trying to bring her back.

Yeah, I understand how Yozora felt and I definitely saw her freaking out at every revelation. My complaint is that it was just tossed into the credits of the final episode. They're just like, "OH BY THE WAY" and that's it. Something like that deserves another episode at least to set things up for season 3. It was just way too abrupt for me.

Personally it reminded me of Seitokai no Ichizon, which started parodied harem comedies, only to run out of ideas and turn into a fairly generic harem show. Or Hayate, which started out parodying anime cliches, and turned into a fairly generic harem show (curse you popularity polls!)

I think the problem was that in the first season, the driving forces were Yozora being Kodaka's childhood friend and Yozora's rivalry with Sena. The others characters were just for light relief.

I think this season could have used 1 more episode.


I don't think they have enough material for another season :(.

Just finished re-watching S1 and finished watching S2 today. Loved it. But seeing as there were 2 years in between S1 and S2 we will have a ways to wait to see even if a S3 comes.

They don't have enough as of now, the light novels have been delayed because it was originally going to end soon but because of the anime success he was told to make the story longer so there will be at least 1 more season at some point.

Wow, that is retarded, They always take the risk of crushing the story when they tell the author to stretch it farther then they have planned. The content in between might not be as good as the rest.

I've just watched the 2 seasons of Haganai and I Have to say that I found it very entertaining and fun to watch, but I did feel a bit sad after watching that ending... It's just so messy, it doesn't explains anything or the relationship with the other girls; I find the ending rather frustrating and annoying, I'm sure a lot of people felt this way after watching it (I was like WTH and screaming to my screen).

If someone has any news regarding this anime, please let me know!!! I NEED MOAR !!!!

It is probably one of my favorite harem shows, mainly because the way the characters develop is really well done.

Rika's evolution in particular is great but to different extents all the girls have some very good development in their personalities.

Kodaka himself knows he is being a wishy washy wuss and his reasons for being so are actually understandable. If he makes a choice he risks loosing the only group of friends he has.

and even if they refuse to admit it they do all become very close friends.

It's also one of the few where the Girls actually make a serious move on the guy instead of the regular floating around him spouting their stereotype flirting.
