I'd agree with everything you wrote except for this. He's funny, but "unique"? No fucking way - he's a typical cynical beta getting dragged along by women, similar to Kyon and the dozens both before and after him
.
However, he is well-written. You can see his naivete shine through the cynicism in a pretty comedic fashion. Also, the way he "solves problems" in a way that makes people hate him is pitiful and endearing.

One of the few shows where the MC turns down girls but actually has a decent reason for it. Well writen and amusing social commentary that a lot of /a/nons can relate to or idolise.

In the meantime, I WON'T tell you to fuck off to >>>/jp/ or >>>/b/ which is where you're probably from, and will instead insist that you demonstrate logical, and reputable criticisms of Oregairu in a way that's subjective in that you don't need to build a strawman to get your points across, and still manages to be objective

No idea.

Anyway, not even Sagami's friends support her as she's the head of the Sports Festival committee and she wanted them, the various sports clubs, to do their job. They're out of time, out of ideas and it seems like Yukinon would be shouldering all the burden by herself. Everything takes a turn for the worse during this meeting when Hiratsuka sensei wasn't around and the sports clubs threatened to boycott the Sport Festivals, they might get injured during the preparation or during the event itself, which would destroy their chances at winning in an upcoming interhigh competition.

/a/non, did you see the sales for 8man? They were phenomenal. Eventually we may indeed get a 2nd season, and hopefully it'll be a 2 cour. People decide to make seasons according to the number of BD/DVD Units sold, and then gauge the cost of production vs the sales % and then divide the GI. 8man did good for the genre it is.

This time round, the 3 Volunteer Club members had chemistry and approached the problem together, with Hikki coming up with a radical idea, one that even makes Meguri comment with a beautiful smile, "You're really a bad person."

Hikki decides that they hold the Sports Festival hostage, if the sports club do not want to contribute, they're barred from the Sports Festival as "unrelated personnel". They also did a poll with the rest of the student body, they all wanted a good Sports Festival and a certain question asks about their views on the upcoming interhigh, they all agree that the Sports Festival won't affect the interhighs in anyway. These results are produced in the next committee meeting.

There were some exchange between the different groups but the Volunteer Club manages to convince everyone of alternatives, costumes for the finale would be made by Sakisaki, Ebina and so on. Hikki had a very cute scene with Sakisaki as well. Anyway, Sagami's friends finally said it out, they brought up her performance during the Cultural Festival and told everyone that Sagami didn't do shit and they're sure she'll fail again this time round. However, Sagami finally held her ground and admit (in tears) her mistakes and apologizes, but promises she'll do better this time round and is fully committed. Hikki notes that Sagami's character finally made a change for a better, even if it's only slightly.

The Sports Festival went on just like what you saw this episode 13. However, Hikki cheated as well and Sagami made an announcement, the committee would investigate the matter but they never produce any clear results, though most people who knew Hikki witnessed him cheating (that means they were looking only at him).

Sometime later Hikki ran into Sagami in a corridor, they went face to face and finally, in a long time, Sagami spoke to Hikki. Hikki reflects on these events and concludes that since Sagami spoke to him, she must have thought of him as equals.

Oh, we've got a real Einstein here people.
>Sets it apart
Now I'm absolutely convinced you have autism. I don't even need to formulate a direct argument. You CLEARLY did as I requested, by pointing out 5 things that - when set aside as an anime within its own genre make it DIFFERENT from others. Yeah, good job there. As a culture, in hollywood and in other countries where entertainment is a booming industry, there are often culturally accepted cliches within anime / motion pictures that mark them "culturally" - as time tested and are invaluable in a way that it proves the workmanship behind the medium / type of entertainment, and its origins.

>"Walking into the bathroom while your not-related-by-blood-sister"
as a talking point to why Oregairu sucks doesn't hold a fucking droplet of water logically.

The rest of your arguments have some merit, but soley as opinion, and nothing more. You not liking an MC doesn't mean he's not likable, It may mean you're projecting your insecurities due to a strong sense of relation towards him, and you - because of that, refuse to accept his existence, because that would mean accepting your own as well. In other words
>OPINION stated as FACT.

Yeah, naming a bunch of cliches in a harem really won you points there.

He uses techniques that may hurt others to get things done, and he is willing to damage himself the most to do so. He builds an aura of someone everyone hates that allows him to do these kinds of things. He's a selfless person, but in a very dark way.

That's what I figure anyway.

>>
>>100041868
Typing, punctuation, and "emphasis" on words have nothing to do with the points made, and do not take away from their function of proving OP wrong not only in terms of his "ideals" of what constitutes an "good" in anime, but more specifically what constitutes as "bad" in oregairu.

I'll take a step back, and simply say he has shit taste, and should hide all logical criticisms of HIS criticisms if he doesn't want to advance his understanding and knowledge of anime as a medium, and simply rates things according to how many asspulls or anime tropes he can spot in the first 4 episodes, which is about all he sat through it seems, because if he sat through more than 4 episodes, he'd of realized that the MC and crew - did more than enough to make up for any and all "cliches" present in the plot.

Also,
>hurr he did fuck all in terms of proving OP wrong.
>Ignore valid argument dedicated to dismantling his way of thinking, as it's, to put it simply - shit thinking / normalfag thinking / "new and has seen no more than 70 anime series total" tier level thinking
Sasuga.

> I've yet to see anything against or even relating to that.
What in the fuck are you on about? I think you're very confused.

>an "good" in anime
A* good anime*
Fix'd.

Let me also add, according to OP, any MC that deviates outside of the normally accepted spectrum of behavior is considered "redeemable if he does something noticeably different than most MC's in haremshit" yet knowingly bitches about the rest of the tropic niches and uses those as the basis of his argument, yet completely ignores any cliches spawned from the MC "being different" - in a way that, the pace of the plot is developing independent of his actions? Are you fucking kidding me? You may as well never watch anime, ever. Faggot. Now fuck off like you were supposed to >>100041430 - and don't come back making bullshit threads until you've seen at least 300 anime, and have lurked for at least another two years.

As* good in anime. Holy shit the autism just don't stop

I added a tripcode so OP won't bitch about samefagging.

So, any other complaints besides obvious bullshit like modern cliches which are essentially a type of branding - that cultures like japan have nested deep within their roots, and is socially acceptable to them, and is only really ever complained about outside of japan by normalfags like you?
