Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 12: This is Goodbye, Then

Ahh…what a lovely way to end such a wonderful series. Many of you know that Oregairu is my favorite anime series, and though I’ve sometimes been critical of this season’s progression (and that in the light novels), I still love what was transpiring, and particularly this final episode—I would say one of the best last… Read More Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 12: This is Goodbye, Then

Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 11: A Genuine Confession

“Allow me the privilege of distorting your life.” Only Hikki would make his love confession in such a way. But isn’t that just like him in the end? It’s as authentic as it is awkward, honest as it is strange, and precisely the proper way for him to end the first journey he was on… Read More Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 11: A Genuine Confession

Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 10: A Gallant Kind of Love

I haven’t made any qualms about feeling that the final act of Oregairu is the weakest, both in the light novels and thus far, in the anime. But that doesn’t mean I don’t find it to still be extremely well thought out (Wataru Watari used those several years well in completing his series!). This specific… Read More Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 10: A Gallant Kind of Love

Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 9

A very important theme I’ve never focused on when writing some several dozen articles about Oregairu is heavily emphasized in this episode. It’s also part of the series title. When Oregairu (My  Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong As I Expected) begins, Hikki is without a club, without friends, without prospects. He’s wasting away his youth.… Read More Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 9

Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 8: You Win

Episode eight of Oregairu’s final season speeds us through some of the light novel material as it wraps up planning for the dummy prom and moves us even a few steps beyond that. The computer club creates a nice website for Hikki’s prom, and with some help from Haruno, he realizes that Yukino’s mother isn’t… Read More Oregairu Season 3 (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU CLIMAX), Episode 8: You Win
