I honestly don't think he will pick anyone. As we can all see he is quite adamant in his choice to not get to close or affectionate towards others from fear of rejection.


And in doing so he becomes the thing he hates the most, funny how flawed his "perfect logic" actually happens to be. Growing closer to Yui and Yukino only to rebuff and avoid them.

I don´t see a problem with hachiman making no choice, and "tommythecat" the anime is living up to his name perfectly, Its "My Rom Com is Wrong, as I expected." So it was a given that it would become akward, because it was never supposed to be a fullfilling youth of hachiman. It was a parody-like setting in which rom com was a center and it kinda is visible here and there. But its not the overall theme in that aspect, to say it´s theme would be to detroy your view of generic Rom Com anime. In which the MC can help other people without getting a good end. That would be as sad as hachimans worldview.

I'd be utterly surprised if he turns cold to Yukino and it may not be set in stone but reading the situation it's hard to imagine it going anywhere else at this point unless the real SNAFU is that he does the unexpected

I predict there will be no choice by the end of the anime. It has a bonus episode and an OVA coming at some point and the novels will not be finished yet.

But I would be happy with either Yui or Yukino and will feel bad for whomever is not chosen so in fact I will feel better, for once, with no choice. Romantic love triangles are starting to annoy me for this reason as I feel bad for the one not chosen when they don't give her a plan B or a plan C...


Do you have any idea on how sales for this is?

Novel sales are going very well, over 100000 copies per volume.

Pre sales of discs are very good too, currently predicted as 5400 and on an upswing.

I'm with the Yukino camp, but I'm not about to try and actually predict anything.

This wouldn't surprise me either; it'd be like Hyouka, a sort of prelude before any actual romantic involvement.

I swear, the subbed version I watched said, "I want to get Totsuka wet.." and I literally had to force myself to not laugh.

That can be taken so many ways, Hachiman!!

It's not a romance if he doesn't get in a relationship, it's just a comedy. How you interpret the title is up to you. His rom com is wrong does not mean he doesn't find love, instead it means it doesn't happen the way a Rom-Com would normally play out. He is rebuffing the girls around him(though he does seem interested in Saika) turning his world view into a self fulfilling prophecy. If he just never gets involved with anyone this would be a horrendously boring journey of how a man so wrapped up in his ideals never finds love. You could interpret the title that way but the chances of that happening are slim to none.

To your first sentence: that´s kinda nonsense. Its the aspects of Romance that make it a romantic anime, there is really no need to get in a relationship like dating one of the girls to make it a romantic anime. To get to know each other, to build up plain friendship can be romantic too, and ofcourse the romantic aspect could be coming from yuigahama alone, hachiman does not need to answer those feelings. You should view a RomCom as a genre itself instead of seperating those two. Hagani was pure RomCom and kodaka didn´t had a relationship and didn´t thought he had friends over 2 seasons. I mean the writer himself stated that he was influenced by haganai.

And ofcourse I hope everyone interprents the title for themselfs it´s never about right or wrong in that aspect, but it would be enough if you tolerate my point of view.
Well he isn´t unable to find love, instead he wishes not to fall in love that easily and a "wrong RomCom" could be considered a route in which it does not end in a romantic relationship.

To the other sentence: I never wrote he would never get involved with anybody. That isn´t even possible for him because his teacher is watching over him. Also he is kind enough to think properly how to help people in need even if he has to sacrifice himself.

You made a kinda awkward interpretation there as well, he sticks to his guns "ideals" to the end, is what hachiman himself said. But that is not a reason to "never fall in love". I mean he is just in highschool and "in living his youth", I did not mean he can´t choose someone when he got out of school. I just wrote his youth is not fullfilling in an aspect in which popular people would see it.

Nonsense? Hardly. If you think that Kodoka wont end up with someone you are being naive. If you have some examples of a Romance genre anime where nothing ever comes a relationship(assuming it is complete) I'm all ears. There is this thing called payoff, if you don't give it to your fans then they get pissed off so a LN about the MC's Rom-Com was not what he expected asserts something will eventually happen between him and someone else once he stops forcing his world view on every situation because he's afraid of being rejected. Also Kodoka's antics of "huh what was that" are only funny for a while. The same will be said for Hachiman should he continue his forced mannerisms purposely not acknowledging and rebuffing what he sees in front of him. Yes the entire show is about how things don't happen the way it normally would in a RomCom, but as hard as he tries he's going to be falling in love sooner or later, probably later since Haganai writer is an influence. Gotta milk people for all they are worth with these things.

I just said you can interpret the title the way you like but when I do that it is wrong, nonsense, and awkward? Here's a tip for you, if you want to have an amicable discussion about competing theories on the direction of an anime keep the discussion focused on the issues and back it up with your own theories. So if you plan to "win" this debate by belittling my position by asserting what I say is awkward and nonsense by all means you win.
