So far there has been yaoi and family love interests... and then Shizuka sensei a lot of support.... and even Iroha. I can imagine Hachiman sweating bullets already! Poor Yukino and Yui.

Damnit H9!!! I was telling Shawn the other day that Iroha might be #1 by season's end

Ah well, I shall see soon I guess since I havent read anything


My boy Harp, just simply knowing whats up....or eventually.


Hmm, well, after this season ends. I will recommend you a read. Its canon, but its like a side story LN. So you will never see it in anime form, I don't think. If all goes well, it will take place directly after this season ends.

Unless they end on LN 9, which...is a possibility.

No one.

Isn't that the purpose of the series? He creates a "harem" that really isn't one, because he realizes how superficial their relationships are at their age? That he realizes they are all horrible people kept together by the status quo? That when a girl does show slight interest, its due to his facade?

The series takes a different route than Nisekoi in mocking fandom (Nisekoi plays the tropes straight to where the audience is punished for demanding the tropes in the first place, this series revels in crushing the delusions of the typical MC and typical fan by playing straight how they are delusions) but I don't see how the author could possibly justify MC getting with anyone.

Not without Oreimo levels of bullshit, anyways.

You know.. I never really thought about it until now.. Yukino's older sister, Haruno... would be kinda weird but they have interacted more than once in the series so far.

I've been shipping 8man and Iroha since before the second season even began airing, and that's what I'm sticking with. Because just imagining the two of them together...ufufufu~....


As for Shizuka, it doesn't have to 8man. Just anyone, please marry her already!





-also, I honestly have no idea why, but recently I've been thinking "Saika x Meguri" to myself...

Well, it is a light novel series; most of them have pretty bullshit endings in the first place, so I'm pretty sure the author can find a way to get Hachiman with somebody.

Sort of but not quite. For example the whole reason Yukino is being shitty with 8man lately is because she knows that they aren't quite friends and the only reason they ever interact is because of the club but she wants something more genuine from them as a group, a sentiment she thought 8man also had, but discovered he didn't and was content with continuing along with that superficial status quo that he claimed to hate essentially showing her that their relationship was as shallow as she had feared it was. This search for something genuine is becoming an increasingly big focus.

Seconded. Hachiman is going out of his way to keep his relationships from becoming too genuine. He looks like he's been coming out of his shell in a big way on the surface, but the audience knows that he's still holding people at arm's length - and also that he's beginning to realize he doesn't necessarily want it that way. The past couple episodes have displayed that he's starting to doubt the worldview that he'd so adamantly maintained before; this kind of facetiousness is neither intrinsic nor unique to relationships at his age, and I don't think he's ever limited his cynical view to high school specifically (and rightly so), but he's learning that there's something worth looking for behind (or more accurately, along with) all the superficiality. Hachiman has the kind of mindset that allows him to analyze people and get to the "why" of how they act. Originally, he thought that made them "fake", or at least immature, but now it seems as though he's more willing to admit that these masks are just a part of being genuine. The fact that he's been wearing one himself during this latest arc, I think, will eventually be a catalyst to that realization.

Also, am I the only one who's rooting for Hachiman x Yui?

Points/Screen-time, I think Iroha has the most. Their relationship seems more straightforward because they don't really care about their impression on each other. However, from the latest episode we can see nuances that show their acceptance to each other. Though they might not realize this themselves.

Total points, I think Yui has the most. Although, this is more of a tie with Yukino. Yui has some nice moments with Hachiman, more so than I could say with Yukino. But this can change at pretty much any point in the series. I do like the idea of Hachiman with Yui or Yukino. However, I do not ship either.

I ship Hachiman x Iroha for canon.
xShizuka
xHina
xYui
xYukino
xMeguri
xHaruno
xKaori
xSaki
I don't ship yaoi

Imouto route confirmed.

Isn't that on her though? Her tsundere schtick. I didn't view 8mans POV as willing to perpetuate the status quo, but recognizing he doesn't have the power to change it. Every time he did, he got flak from other characters, especially Hayano and Yui. The difference between actively creating their artificial relationships and protecting them, versus simply not opposing them.

As I said above, it just seems like a bit of a 180 in the POV of the characters and inversing the dynamics of their relationships. It comes across as entirely forced and not grounded in either the established characters or overall narrative. I also struggle with the concept of "genuine fakery"
as the only result from such behavior is to have some pretty warped relationships, which to the credit of the series doesn't shy away from rather explicitly stating to be the case with the characters.

If the series is ultimately stating people are fundamentally cowards unable to achieve or cope with honesty, that is frankly disgusting, and like the example of Oreimo I gave, revelling and rewarding the worst impulses of its otaku audience instead of using the opportunity to be something greater.
