This MC is so beta, it hurts to watch this any further. I'll be honest /a/, I enjoy rom-coms but the characters in this are just pathetic How is it that so many people actually like this show?
He is not beta he s omega and he is /a/ dark knight get /out/ newfag
Don't fall for that. He even used a stream print screen too make it more obvious.
May as well kill yourself. 8man is a hero.
>Not a bumbling idiot
>Isn't a white knight
>Marries the cake
My favorite moment was when that festival leader girl got fucking told in front of the whole committee.
>1.46 MB png
Get the fuck out and never come back.
The greatest taste.
You anime elitist tears only quench thirst more.
Please continue to rage.
I'm not even as autistic as the rest of /a/ but that's just fucking stupid
>I'm not even as autistic as the rest of /a/
>Caring about streaming or .png
No,you're autistic at the same level
8man is the farthest thing from beta. Learn the meaning of the word, crossboarding normalshit.
Are you that guy that got mad because we told you off on a rec thread.
Man are you mad.
I have no idea what you are talking about so no.
I bet you're one of those fags who never change their car oil and just tell other people to fuck off.
You are, oh man.
Are we watching the same show?
If you say so anon. You're free to believe what you want.
he is somewhat beta but actually he isn´t.
he does a lot of stuff a beta would be too scared to do.
he is just some kind of a social outcast, not your typical beta anime mc
also he is the dark knight and speaks words of wisdom
>not liking best MC of that season
Yup, everything seems to be in order here.
I'm pretty sure. Apparently I'm not getting something as everyone on /a/ prays to this man. I'm only on episode 3. Does this show pick up at all?
And he calls us elitists because we don't use shit-tier anime watching methods. Ohohoho, that's like going to a book-binding convention with glued spines.
I don't have a car
Then please anon, please convince me why I should stop streaming anime with out using the reasons:
1.) Better quality
2.) You can watch it again and again, whenever you want, where ever you want.
what do you want in an MC?
And why should you disqualify these reasons?
You don't have to be subjected to censored TV and web rips years after uncensored DVD/BD rips are avalible
he's not a beta, he's an omega
>liking the faggot
>explain why Option A is superior to Option B without using the reasons why Option A is superior
Possibly the only logical and correct answer to the endless debate that I, as a streamer, agree with.
This needs some updating
Why would you willingly subject yourself to inferiority? Same with the VLC laddies. I just don't get it. If you're a poorfag and/or shit internet streaming can be excused.
>Not liking him
But damn he looks weird in the LN. They all do actually.
Which is exactly why I honeslty don't care.
Hate me more /a/nons. I'm ready for your rage
Saika looks like Pokemon trainer here.
No one's going to take you seriously cause you use shitty streams. Anyone who's been here longer than a week would know that. Fuck off back to whatever board you came from.
>I don't care
You seem more upset than the people you assume are.
>Which is exactly why I honeslty don't care
That doesn't make any sense in context.
He's a God for me.
he's so made he can't even type properly
He's the polar opposite of the typical beta harem MC.
We are actually helping you.
> Knows every bitch wants his dick
> Goes for the bitch he wants actively
> Rejects bitch he doesn't like actively as well
It's like you're not even trying. You must be the same faggot who made that happy Kôko thread with her pic smiling, right? You seem like the type of untrying fag wanting to rile others up.
What else do you got?
Cause it's good and well written compare to the sea
of garbage out there.
>he's so made
I think you're made too.
Too gay for me.
I'm disappointed /a/.
Have you forgotten our hero already?
The best part of this show, besides the MC, the characters, and the dialogue, was the amazing art and the incredibly hot bitches it produced. What the fuck are you doing?
>give me reasons I care about
anon what are you doing
>This whole thread
Too edge for me.
You don't know what beta means
And fuck you for your horrible fucking image quality
Nice meme, faggot.
I like him because he calls out people on their BS unlike regular romcom protagonists.
>Popular girl randomly starts hanging around him
Random Protagonist: Would just roll with it to get another girl in the harem.
Hachiman: "I know that your hanging out with me because of the past, leave me alone."
Definitely omega. Hachiman gives no shits and I like that.
The usual /a/. Isn't this aussie time?
Tell us why is the MC in your own words "just pathetic"
I want to see you argument.
I don't even.
Amazing debate skills you got there.
This will never happen to me kill me.
>Which is exactly why I honeslty don't care.
>I'm eating shit and you can't stop me
>Haha! Look at those idiots getting angry because I eat shit
He has low standards, don't bother with him.
It's like "trolls" are not even caring anymore.
Why are you guys all so hurt and annoyed by 8man? Is it because you like... what? I can't even fathom it. Do tell please, I am trying to understand for once, seriously.
I see you point but what people here seem to believe is that streaming is so bad that it should not be done period and that anyone that partakes in streaming is the spawn of Satan himself.
In your case, you have a reason to download anime as you care about quality and going back to watching a series over again but I don't. I like to view an anime and move on to the next one. So why is it that I should be subjugated to criticism when I have no reason to download anime so I choose to stream it instead?
Do you now see how pointless the argument that you are trying to present to streamers?
The fuck do you mean?
>I need to raise my own money for my college
>I can't tell my siblings that I work late or what I work for
Probably edgy wasn't the best word to use but just how she automatically assumes she'll be a burden annoyed me.
>Cared enough to edit an image
If you don't care why are you going to such lengths to make sure everyone knows you don't care. If you think streaming is better so be it, someone is just trying to get you to see their point of view. In a way he's only looking out for you, faggot.
I want to wake up to his smile every morning.
Never has any sensei deserved the dick as much as she did.
Saika you're too fucking adorable for this world.
>what a beta self-insert faggot why isn't he fucking any of those girls
>same introverted faggot character but this time the anime adaptation actually preserves his "witty internal dialogue"
>TEH HERO /a/ DESERVES HE JUST LIKE US OMG FUCK YEAH HE DOESN'T EVEN CARE ABOUT THOSE GIRLS DEFINITELY MY AOTS
Yahari is fucking shit
At least use a stream with good quality. It's a fucking visual medium, for god's sake. And really, why roll with inferiority?
You quoted >>100071464 wrongly. I wholeheartedly support torrenting.
8man isn't dense, at all.
You could argue that hes a typical cynical jaded type, but hes clearly smarter, and more perceptive than everyone else.
But Hikki isn't dense.
He's a pessimistic hipster who can't into romance, but not dense.
I get how 8Man is awesome, but why do people call him Batman?
Batman was always kicking the ass of villains at night. I don't see the connection.
He's the hero we need, but not one we deserve.
You're fucking retarded. If anything, he's the smartest person along with Yukino. Most of the fucking problems are solved by him.
There was a reason for it, but I can't remember what.
You got that right buddy.
Well I found it to be endearing, she's tough on the outside but has a soft center. I apologize for insulting Saika though.
Hes the hero they need, but not the hero they deserve. So they'll hate him...
Through the whole show he goes around tell people the truths they don't want to hear, dishing out abrasive reality like its his fucking job all while not giving a single fuck.
It's okay, I apologize for calling her edgy.
Alright folks, I dropped this shit (on episode 2 I think) because that fucking MC got anal crusaded by that blond bitch who keeps whipping the ass of pink air.
Should I pick it up again, or will MC remain as annoying?
The great tragedy with 8man is he doesn't really improve the lives of everyone else, he just prevents them from boarding the suicide train or getting superfucked up in the head from their retarded actions.
OreGairu is interesting because while 8man is portrayed as socially inept, that's not the case at all. He fully understands what he has to do to fit in, the thought just disgusts him, and when people who supposedly "do" fit in make social mistakes he's bailing them out without credit.
Having to endure his retarded speeches without anyone poking at the obvious holes in them was pretty annoying. But it's no surprise /a/ fell for the whole beta glorification, no matter how moronic it was. It was the same old haremshit except with a mc aimed at pandering to socially awkward betas so they could have a someone to idolize. You pretty much have to glance at all the buttmad and meme spouting defense forces that popped up in this thread to prove the point.
I was pretty confused when I finished this show. What emotions was I supposed to feel? It ended without too much happening, was I supposed to think 8man was witty, and that he was right? Hell, there's was hardly any romance like the title suggested, and any of it there were never got any light when it ended. What was the point of this anime?
I never understood that phrase ,they deserve a better hero? or a shitty one?
>automatically assumes she'll be a burden annoyed me.
How? She tries her best on her own and doesn't want to bother anyone.
>she's tough on the outside but has a soft center
This would be pretty creepy.
MC is based.
I don't know, it just annoyed me.
It means the mean are shit, and they don't deserve to have someone actually helping them, even though they sorely need it.
Anyone have the love hotel version of this?
What's annoying about him again? He is awesome.
>it means the people
Does that actually exist?
MC get his revenge..
>and that he was right
He isn't. Hikki's just as socially retarded as everyone else because of how jaded he is, he's just willing to do the things other people won't.
>Hell, there's was hardly any romance like the title suggested
Pretty sure that was the point. It's an adaptation of an ongoing LN anyways.
isnt just "he is too good a hero for them". Referring how the people he helps are asshole, cause after getting the help they need they still act like asshole
>Having to endure his retarded speeches without anyone poking at the obvious holes in them was pretty annoying. But it's no surprise /a/ fell for the whole beta glorification, no matter how moronic it was.

You pretty much have to glance at all the buttmad and meme spouting defense forces that popped up in this thread to prove the point.
It's was another generic harem. With a tweeeeest.
What annoys me more is that the LN was not adapted 100% so there were so much detail that were just not shown.
For all I care, everyone is best girl
Wasn't there only one confirmed girl that was into him in the anime?
Yeah, there wasn't really a character in the main cast I disliked.
Except the bitch that got served during the cultural event.
That's what happens when it's only one cour and they rush through six volumes, I suppose.
I don't really consider her main cast but yeah, fuck her.
Elitist Faggots. I don't spend my time telling people how to enjoy their forms of media and forcing my opinions on others so here's why people who do this shit should fuck off.
Torrenting takes time and is potentially risky, although none give a shit about the risk.
If superior quality is important for you then good for you. Go torrent. For me it's not. The difference between 720p and 480p don't make that huge a difference to me. Not worth the time.
I don't live in some shit 3rd world country. When I click play I watch the whole thing through with no stopping. If you have problems then find a better streaming website or get a better internet connection.
Well you would normally have me here if I couldn't understand basic Japanese. That and websites tend to stick to one set of subs, so if you don't like it, find a different website.
Wow really?! I need flash on the internet?! I guess I'm shit out of luck then huh?! How will I ever get my browser to play something in flash?!
My stream doesn't have adds or interruptions.
>Unlimited viewing time.
I already have that. You guys just chose shit tier websites for streaming that require things of you. Don't do that shit.
>Easy to find old releases
Complete bullshit. The website I've been using for streaming archives every fucking anime out there. Shit's ridiculous. They have it in ABC order and I still have to use Ctrl-F to find it. Scrolling for 5 minutes is for plebeians.
You could make an argument here, but I could make the counter argument of I don't want or need the file. I'm not someone who wants the file. The burden of proof to convince me that I want the file falls onto you, because like I said before, I don't want the file. I can always just go back to the website and click play again.
Hachiman's internal monologues were pretty cringeworthy. It was still an okay show with a novel MC.
>What was the point of this anime?
To fuck with people, dumb kawailelotakufags will buy merch and others will buy/read LN and shit on Brain's Base because they cut out best parts and because it's Brain's Base so S2 never
pandering to the angst and edgy anime audience/faggots
OP here. Thank you anon for finally being someone to agree with me.
>it's Brain's Base so S2 never
Unless it's Natsume.
8man isn't socially retarded, hes far too disinterested to maintain social relationships with the people around him because they're all shallow hypocrites.
His classmates act as if their social lives are the only things that matter, appearances and social status mean everything to them, and to someone who realizes how fickle that all is it holds no appeal.
Hes just a slightly above average under achiever whose burned out on life already and has no motivation or drive. Thats what milf sensei is trying to fix in him, but he can't stop seeing things the way he sees them.
It's as if having shit taste these days is a requirement, real talk.
>watch first episode
>mc is a jaded cunt who talks back to girls like it's supposed to be a big deal
Wow what a revolutionary anime it's just like if someone from /r9k/ went to a 11ese high school, no one ever thought of something like that before
Today is sunday in Australia.
>and is potentially risky
You lost me.
>I am gonna use fuck outta the internet
>Actually no, fuck that. I'll settle for substandard version of what interests me, because who cares about visual aspect of visual media, right?!
It's okay if you stream anon, those are some pretty good points. Whatever's good for you, go right ahead. I have no need to change that for you. Still, I can assume you know that a lot of /a/ doesn't like streaming, and it would be best if you kept it to yourself.
>8man was witty, and that he was right?
That he's a flawed human being - hypocritical at best. Right? At some point he is. Methods are wrong.
>Hell, there's was hardly any romance like the title suggested.
His youth romantic comedy is wrong as one would have normally expected. Any expectation for romance should have been less if not totally gone from the start.
8man may be smart and witty, but with the way he is solving shit he is on a way to self-destruction. And he isn't always right, and sometimes even if he is, he should just shut up and play along for his own good.
>Hell, there's was hardly any romance
Yui is all over him, Yukinoshita warmed greatly to him too. And he is quite aware of it, only his anti-social behavior and the fear that it MAY in the end turn out that girls only made fool out him (things like that led him to become the person he is), stop him from getting into the romance.
She's kinda edgy, to be honest.
Still hot as all fuck, probably easily hottest in the series. Yui seconding.
doesnt streaming and torrenting have the same risk? I mean both are downloading the same file, streaming is just download while playing bits it downloaded and torrenting mean you have to wait for the thing to finish
Most faggets around don't like being called on their shit by being assholes. This causes a trigger reaction in them, thus hating 8man even if he's legit.
>OP is so analpained he's started replying to himself.
There's always the whole "license holders will bust down your doors and sue you" thing going around but that never happens in the real world. Your ISP will just put a strike against you and if you get to many, they'll cancel your service.
Obviously you don't care enough to want to watch the shows in the best possible quality, maybe you'd find a place like reddit to be more to your liking.
Even Yukinoshita pointed once or twice that he is contradicting himself. Or spewing bullshit, but with a tone that makes it somehow believable.
Is there anyway we can check that? Just call the company or something?
They should notify you if they suspected something.
I've always heard of this but have never been aware of it actually occurring to anyone.
And the point of the rest of the series is to somehow fix his behavior. Or at least show that he is only harming himself.
For example? Spoilers, please.
Dude, you're so wrong it's not even... No, I shouldn't be replying to obvious retard and/or obvious bait.
>Implying this 8man hate isn't on his calculation already.
>Implying he will care.
It depends man. Like the monogatari series. I'd torrent that. A great aspect about that show is it's really nice art. Unless a show is particularly breathtaking, I don't see the benefit of waiting to see it.
Yeah, I know. It just pisses me off when I find something people miss in an anime and then take a quick screenshot and instead of discussing what I find, the thread derails.
Stop. For the rest, you're kinda right.
Is Hachi a literal god?
Will it get 2nd season?
Who was the best girl?
In the anime, only Yui was really confirmed for liking the 8man. Yuki is only at the friend level right now. In the novels, Yui, Saki, the trap and maybe Sensei are all confirmed to like him. Yui and Saki though have it pretty bad for him. Yukinoshita is just barely friends level with him.
If you knew that most of /a/ didn't like streaming, you brought this upon yourself. If you hasn't, well, now you know. Trial and error, it happens.
Psychologically kicks villains asses, keeps no shit to himself and calls villains (assholes, socialites, normalfags and basically everyone who sucks) on their shit.
Also sacrifices himself for the sake of others. "Not the hero we deserve but the one we need" blah blah blah.
Ahahaha 'strikes'. Only if your ISP is shit anon. Otherwise it's called, 'fair use act' bro, and there isn't shit they can do about it.
Even Japan knows of Hachiman's greatness as best male LN character of the year. Also good to see Yukino for 2nd best female LN character.
>If you have problems then find a better streaming website or get a better internet connection.
>That and websites tend to stick to one set of subs, so if you don't like it, find a different website.
Why should I put up with these inconveniences when I can just hit up nyaa or bakabt?
Apperently it went into effect February last year. I'm pretty sure they send you a letter in the mail telling you that you've been warned. I got one like 5 years ago before it went into effect. It was just a cease and desist "slap on the wrist."
8man is us.
Season is inevitable with the LN's popularity.
Yukinoshita > *
>Yui, Saki, the trap and maybe Sensei are all confirmed to like him
Nah, he's just the 8man.
It was imouto.
No, he actually IS a hipster. Sensei makes it very clear in the first volume.
>“Well. You’ve really met my expectations ? not in a good way. A perfect instance of kounibyou.”
>“Like I said, what the hell is ‘kounibyou’?….”
>“Kounibyou is simply kounibyou, a common state of mind experienced by high school students. They think that being cynical is cool and always express views that are popular on the internet, like, ‘Work and you lose to the system.’7 When referring to popular novelists and manga writers, they say, ‘I like the books they wrote before they became popular.’ They mock the things that everybody worships and praise the obscure. And on top of that, they make fun of otakus even though they are like them. While giving off an air like they understand everything, they spout twisted logic. Basically, they’re unlikeable.”
>“Unlikeable… Crap! That’s pretty much spot on, so I can’t argue!”
I'm not him but some of the stuff the anime skipped was most of the slice of life stuff in volume 5 (sensei "date", Saki flag raised, trap date), 8man for whatever reason saying I love you (serious version) to Saki for telling him about the rooftop during the festival and making her dere every single time she is near/sees him, and other bits and pieces of characterization. It mostly focused on the main three for the anime and cut everything else out.
After Sensei I suppose. To be honest I wasn't Yukino fan when the series was airing, but after 1 or 2 rewatches she has become my favourite girl.
Barely friends? You would call surviving a cold war with one another, warming up to them after such war with more chemostry, as 'barely friends'? They're pretty much comrades-at-arms hence the fallout in vol. 8.
You don't normally. The streaming website I use has multiple mirrors. that vary in subs, dubs, pure non-subs. My point was that IF you have that problem. You can find a different website. It takes all of 10 seconds with google.
>Torrenting takes time
New releases take like a minute or two to download. For older torrents, the same goes when using a private tracker with a good community.
I have never received a copyright notice for downloading animu. Use a private tracker or a seedbox if you're scared.
480p to 720p is a 33% increase in quality, this is significant enough to warrant attention. Not only is it just resolution, streaming bitrates must be taken into consideration which will bump it up to around a 50% difference in quality.
Streaming services are dependent upon time of day and server load. If you're using some illegal streaming site and not Netflix, you will most likely encounter buffering issues. Flash will also occasionally crash.
Some players will completely break unless you reconfigure your cookie/referrer/AdBlock settings. That is, unless your browser is not secure or you're willing to deal with ads anyway.
>Unlimited viewing time
You must consider all the hoops you have to jump through in order to make this true. From buffering to finding streams which aren't in potato quality, all that time adds up.
>Easy to find old releases
Even with torrents it can sometimes be hard to find old or unpopular shows. This problem is amplified greatly with streaming. It's something which just can't be argued.
Monogatari is an example of why you would want a reusable file, one you can pause and rewatch.
>I have never received a copyright notice for downloading anime
got an email for torrenting sekirei, promptly ignored it and they never followed up with it.
So he's basically a guy who does the right thing because fuck the wrong thing? Also while being badass about it yet somewhat a shit?
Best indeed, from all angles.
MC is just a self-righteous loner who over analyzes every small detail because he has no one to talk to or anything better to do. For anyone to praise this pathetic MC is just laughable.
Nah, it's more like i need you you need me relationship. That's barely called friends.
Yeah, that's kinda what I meant. They don't really fit the definition of friends but they do respect each other and are somewhat close.
One of the best things I like about the novels is how their relationship seems to change every-time a new volume is released due to 8man's somewhat selfish actions.
He is the man that takes the shortest route and something that may actually work, even if it's not the best GOOD option. That little girl feels uneasy because she can't get along with the group of other girls? Does he make them all get along? No, fuck it, he just makes her give up on them entirely so she doesn't feel bothered by it anymore!
That sounds nice, let's hope they get translated some day.
Normalfag, like I said, get the fuck out of my /a/
Only volume that's translated very far is Volume 7, unfortunately.
Hey, with all this talk of streaming and downloading stuff, I'm wondering:
If you're looking up a new anime (as in one you haven't seen before), do you download it or is streaming acceptable in those cases?
Especially for older series torrents usually contain the entire series. So if /a/ is saying it's god tier then it makes no sense to only download one of the episodes, but what if it turns out to be a piece of shit? Then you waited for over an hour to find out because the torrent targeted the other episodes before the first one or it had no seeders for that part or whatever. With a stream you can watch the first episode in an instant, and if you're going to shut it down in disgust after the first five minutes then you haven't wasted any of your time (other than those five minutes). But if you like it, you can go ahead and download the rest.
Personally, I stream anime I'm new to or I'm on the fence about. If it's something I know I like or plan to binge watch I'll download it instead.
This thread is terrible, even for weekend /a/.
MC is alpha and omega.
It is never acceptable to stream unless you're watching DBZ episodes with /v/.
It's not. There is Yahari discussion. Are you discussing Yahari?
to make an MC truly relatable for me girls wouldn't approach him out of the blue like.
Don't talk about streaming on /a/ God help the soul of anyone that actually doesn't want to download anime and wants to stream it instead.
There's summaries floating around on AS for volume 4-7 if you really need to read about it.
Truth hurts doesn't it?
No, it's pretty bad.
/a/ doesnt have a problem if its a live stream with a chat
This is standard for yahari threads. Except for the torrent/streaming discussion, that to me is new for these threads.
>this entire thread
Does anyone still have the link to the summaryfag pastebin?
Except that he's perfectly aware of the thing you are accusing him of.
I'm talking about about just watching anime on an anime providing website and not downloading anything
>Oh boy, here comes the rage.
Why does every romcom MC look EXACTLY THE FUCKING SAME nowadays?
Yeah, that is never acceptable.
in those circumstances your not watching for the show, your watching for the social aspect.
I miss yahari, it, along with hataraku and valvrave made thursdays during the summer great
and im saying that sometimes a show is more enjoyable when watching it with anons on a live stream
What do you mean? He was much different than your typical harem lead.
Cool so he's aware that he's pathetic.
And that is what enrages fags so much, who think a life without social interaction and some sort of ego-pandering sense of "sucess" is the only thing in existance. Thus also making them normalfags in disguise as someone pointed in some other thread some time back.
he still looks the same
although that could just be anime
No, he is aware that plebeians like you would think him pathetic.
Here, I think this is it.
> Turn into normalshit
> Conform to society
Captcha: society kostryth
Hikki pls go.
OMFG SAKI ROUTE!?!?!? Omg how could they!? Why would they not show that!? And what's that about the rooftop? Does she guide him in the original to find the other bitch or something? Do tell me!
What is pathetic about being a loner when you despise the people around you? Given how his classmates act towards each other, it's hard to blame him for being that way.
Normie pls go.
He's being ironic, come on, it's even there in the text.
Besides, even if, why is it wrong though? How is it wronger than being a mainstreamfaggot?
What the fuck are you doing?
Season 2 when?
Last part is wrong, rest is yes.
Considering their personality and background, that's more than enough to call 'friends'. Someone you could really count on even if it seems like it's in a business-level kind of deal is a friend. Cultural thing I suppose.
The thing I don't particularly agree with is 'somewhat close'. Even the two of them framed or gave their definition of what it means to be close (around Yui's birthday). Looking at how their most serious arguments go, they 'way beyond close friends'. It goes along with what I replied to the anon above.
I thought he was pretty relatable, he thought about things alot like I did when I was younger, and also I had a girl like Yui I was in love with in high school, but I messed it up.
We used to have reminiscing threads about high school here. Those were the days my friend.
>why is it wrong though
I never said it was.
Yahari threads - Blogging
Confirmed for main antagonist/big bad?
The whole show is about a guy who's self aware that he's pathetic. Keep sucking his virgin dick though, it's funny.
These were the worst parts of Oregairu threads.
It reminds me there is a Vita game that will never get translated.
I find this character more relatable.
Pathetic in the eyes of normalfags, like you.
Now git out.
>Torrenting takes time and is potentially risky
If you're fucking retarded, then yeah.
Got me then.
Must admit Yahari threads bring the best kind of trolls and counter-trolls. Delightful.
While most of them were shit, I found some rather entertaining.
When he`s forced to look for that president girl, 8man asks for Saki`s help instead of his chunni friend`s. The same process happens where he asks for places where loners would gather and Saki mentions the rooftop. 8man then runs off thanking her by saying ``I love you`` (the serious ``aishiteru`` version for use between couples) and it`s mentioned that he heard a scream as he runs off. After all that drama happens, every-time Saki even looks at Hachiman later on, she starts to blush heavily and acts very nervous.
Could we state, via theory and science that Kirino lovers are 8man haters?
You're typing like an idiot.
He's no better than the assholes in his school and he doesn't even attempt to better himself, instead he just tries too hard to find a reason to dislike someone like he did with the popular dude even though he was nice
>Oh that guy is nice, handsome, and popular, he must be a dick underneath all
MC is just as much a faggot as his classmates and the people who praise him are terrible people irl
You made my day.
Nope, I liked the blogging - I enjoy hearing the plights of /a/nons
Ok I'm gomen
Yay, pictures from volume 8. Haven't been checking this out for a while, thought I didn't get much from watching the images.
This looks cute though. Yui best girl.
It was almost year ago but this shit still make me laugh
His opinion of popular guy was partially informed by the company he kept. Even after getting to know him, his white knight attitude was still a bit offputting, as depicted in the rooftop scene.
He wasn't a white knight he just didn't agree with the way MC handled the situation
Too bad this will never be animated. ;_;
Nobody cares, eat a dick.
I'm not sure why they left it out. It wouldn't change a thing, wouldn't be any less funny than the phone call and if they ever make a S2 there wouldn't be a need to retcon the reason why Saki likes him so much. Unless they plan to write her out of the story entirely.
>le may may happy guy arrows
Think of the anime as promoting the light novel.
They tried to cover as much of the main story as possible. I guess that a new season will try to expand a little more on the side characters?
I kind of figure why they wouldn't dilute the series too much, but I agree that it kind of sucked.
It`s kind of implied that the popular guy (Hayato) is a bit of a manipulative person in the novels though. Everyone (except the trap, sensei and Yui) are pretty twisted in this series.
>a new season
Almost certainly not happening.
But author himself said 60%
I enjoyed it a lot, but I did get pissed off at times when it it was clear the director was trying to get me on Hikki's side during some of the disputes, despite him being a complete prick.
Also, I still mad at his dumb stunt at the end of the festival arc. God dammit, you self-sacrificing bastard
Even if they do a season 2, it will focus more on Yui and Yukino.
I guess, but it still doesn't really explain why they felt a need to change that.
I want to believe, but
It's ok, anon. He doesn't need you to be thankful for his sacrifice, knowing he saved you is a reward in itself.
It's not just that, he also has a fear of people too. He realizes that people are much crueler than they think they are, in which simple acts which they might think as normal are in fact extremely painful to the person they are doing it too. He's experienced humiliation from trying to interact with people, causing him to burrow himself into his own shell. He does wants friends, he does want to love, but in his own eyes it's an impossibility due to his own experiences of constant failures. For him, relationships only cause pain so the best way to avoid them is to isolate himself from everyone else. Even if they hate him, even if they don't know who he is, as long as they stay as strangers he won't be hurt.
Jesus that video quality.
Author himself said that this novel itself is the world seen through 8man's perspective, which is why things tend to be biased towards him and generally not the best anime material. You're supposed to judge through your own point of view, since he isn't always right.
Regardless of the "feel good factor" it was a dumb thing to have done
It's ok that you don't understand, in fact, it's better that way.
It's not bad. It's not great either. The MC is interesting, the girls are cute, nothing happens and there's no ending.
I understand plenty, anon.
The festival wouldn't have been "ruined" if he didn't make himself a scapegoat. There were other options
It's subtle but a lot has happened. MC has developed as a character.
>there's no ending
The novels are ongoing.
You are welcome to believe that, as I said, he doesn't need your thanks.
There was also people whining about LN spoilers.
That was exactly the point Hayato raised. It was eventually forced onto him in Volume 8 though.
Jesus, what I would do for more characters like 8man would anyone like to rec me something
Yes hes pathetic but he is far from being a beta like you say anon. He doesn't rely on others and he is actually quite strong mentally
Read the novels.
I have no thanks for him. Just irritation and sympathy for needlessly him needlessly falling on his own sword
Well, he did technically solve the problem and upheld the request to make Sagami a successful commitee chairman. If he hadn't done that, then everyone would have blamed her instead.
He did it by being a martyr, granted, but that's the MC for you.
That's the point. He's so self-absorbed in how his own point of view is right that he just does things in the way that is worst for him and better for everyone else. If you did understand, then you'd know it's in his character to do it that way.
And like I said, it's ok if you don't understand or hate him, he isn't a hero you need to love and shower with thanks.
Yeah. Hence "Omega"
What you described is your typical Omega character
Fuck off already. The whole point of this novel is to establish that his ways are incorrect. He sorta did more harm than good in Volume 7 and eventually forced to consider his options in Volume 8.
Please tell yourself whatever you need to believe, I won't blame you, for ignorance truly is bliss.
It wasn't the festival he 'saved'. There was someone else's name at stake and that someone happened to have agreed, in clear wrong judgement call, to make Sagami look good strictly as the festival's chairman.
Problem solved. At the cost of making the entire year (apart from the leading cast) hate him. As I said, Completely unecessary
You still have yet to add anything with your shitty passive-aggressive posts. Stop bullshitting
I would have thought Hayato could have made it too without 8man's intervention.
I'm not trying to be aggressive, I'm just saying it's ok if you don't understand, and you can stop repeating yourselves.
8man, Kiritsugu, Nozomu, and Kaiki are in a room.
What character could survive this despair?
That doesn't change the fact that MC disliked him at first sight just for the simple fact he was handsome, popular, and kind.
Can we argue about streaming some more? That looked fun, but I missed it.
I've actually started downloading anime before, but then essentially said 'fuck it', deleted it, and streamed instead.
Are you done yet?
>At the cost of making the entire year (apart from the leading cast) hate him
True, but what other options did he have at the time?
Stop responding to bait. He'll get his illusions crushed in S2.
Kaiki is the strongest.
We probably won't get a S2, unfortunately.
..At least Volume 7 is getting translated though.
I know that. The point was that by the festival being a "failure" in Yukinoshita's Sister's eyes, Yukino would obviously be distraught.
pointed out. He did get called out on how there were other options available.
Too easy of a contest for Kaiki.
Yeah, 8man is a known hypocrite who always assumes the bad in people (like with Yui which ended kinda badly).
No. Hayato could have saved the festival, yes. What Hayato couldn't have done is save Sagami's reputation. She was now known as a quack chairman thereby voiding all the efforts of a certain someone to make Sagami look good. Hikki opted to shift bad blame to himself to equalize Sagami's rep. All in all, it adds to how the bonds of the Service Club operates.
>True, but what other options did he have at the time?
He didn't necessarily have to do anything. Yukinoshita is smart, was already taking charge and doing a damn good job of it. The other girl being a complete fuck-up as events organiser was actually a great opportunity for Yukino to step in and save the day, byt doing the final speech herself. Hell, Hayato could have jumped it too.
The only person whos reputation was almost certainly fucked was bitch events organiser, and why should 8man give a shit about her?
>The other girl being a complete fuck-up as events organiser was actually a great opportunity for Yukino to step in and save the day, byt doing the final speech herself
That's the entire fucking issue though.
Hikki's goal was to make sure that Sagami was seen as a successful chairman, in accordance with the request that the Service Club was given. Even if the festival succeeded, if they failed at that, Yukino's work would have been for nothing.
It is his job to protect the weak.
It wasn't so much as to saving the festival at that point. They're about to end it in fact thus all the effort should be at retaining or improving Sagami's rep. Hayato doesn't know that much so whatever he points out, it won't help Yukinoshita in any way.
Some things just can't be salvaged (or at the very least aren't worth it). If anything, you'd think Haruno would see through the scapegoating that went on and realise Sagami was hopeless from beginning to end and should never have been organizer.
I'm also suspicious whether her rep really was retained. Pretty much everyone already knew Sagami was a shit organiser because they had to put up with her at the meetings. Only when Hikki schooled her did they all go into pitying mode.
Oh and forgot to add.
After the festival, would everyone seriously forget how hopeless Sagami was. just because she got attacked?
>After the festival, would everyone seriously forget how hopeless Sagami was. just because she got attacked?
They pretty much did.
Everyone essentially got what they wanted out of the whole deal as well, other than the fact that Hikki's reputation takes a hit, but he knew that going into it anyways.
/a/, is streaming an episode of a show on 4chan the same as being gay in Botswana in the real world?
Knew I should've saved the things that have been said with regards to Haruno back when the show was still airing. Yes show knows. A lot. Even from when she was entered in the committee and she had her own intentions particularly to develop her sister.
Also no, not forget. Status quo is merely retained. Not so good, not so bad (since there's a person much worse than her in scum-bag rankings).
>They pretty much did.
Fucking goldfish, the lot of them.
She* knows a lot
>Yes show knows. A lot. Even from when she was entered in the committee and she had her own intentions particularly to develop her sister.
So surely that makes it a failure? Does she know about how Hikki was the fall-guy for the entire thing and Yukino did nothing to solve the problem?
Genuinely pretentious anime.
I really hated how all these 16-18 year old kids talk and shoot their mouths as though they have lived for 100 years and have all the wisdom of the world.
Get fucked you stuck up little shits, what the fuck do you know about the world and it's suffering.
That's the point, they don't, they aren't always right.
>So surely that makes it a failure? Does she know about how Hikki was the fall-guy for the entire thing and Yukino did nothing to solve the problem?
First thing's first. Haruno is surprised that her sister isn't the chairman. Second, Haruno reinforced Sagami's lax attitude towards the festival (why? common enemy stuff but that's for another tale). She expected the festival to be a failure under Sagami's leadership but all's well due to Hikki and Yuki's combined efforts. Then Sagami skipping the closing happened and the Hikki ordeal. Haruno knows in a way because she expected Sagami's rep to plummet but Hikki managed to save it - congatulating him later that day and saying he's more than a match for her sister.
Huh, I either had no idea or completely forgot Hatuno enabled Sagami's laziness. What a bitch
>Haruno knows in a way because she expected Sagami's rep to plummet but Hikki managed to save it - congatulating him later that day and saying he's more than a match for her sister
So if anything, the only person who won brownie points from that ordeal was Hikki? Haruno knows Yukino didn't do anything about the Sagami problem at the end (or at the very least that Hikki was the one who sorted it out) and already expected it to bomb.
Christ all this Yahari talk makes me crave a second season all the more
What kind of guy would Saika date? Hachiman? Hayato?
Yukino worked hard to save the festival from bombing. 8man solved the Sagami problem. That was their role.
Okay then. So Yukino would have been fine regardless of what Hikki did. And the only thing Hikki would have gotten out of his stunt is gaining favour with Haruno
He`s pretty much 8man sexual.
I wouldn't say never.
I thought I could forget this shit show. How wrong I was... teacher 2nd best girl btw
inb4 teacher`s sister a best.
To be honest, yes. Even if Hikki has done nothing and Sagami hasn't gotten her "character growth", Yukino probably wouldn't care less about it. The club is only lending a hand, not doing all the work for you. If you are a useless little bitch like Sagami, well, can't be helped.
But 8man decided it's very important.
Yeah, I guess sometimes you just can't stop people from being incompetent.
Still, 8man really needs to get a better sense of self-preservation
No. Yukino accepted Sagami's request to make her look good in front of the school body. So first that'd mean that the festival has to succeed, which it did. The sad thing is that Yukino gets more praises than the standing chairman whereas in contrast, gets worse and worse as she hangs out in the roof and god knows whatll happen to Sagami's growing jealousy. Yukino had to stall for time via performances to let Hikki do the job of finding and brining the chairman back.
>Still, 8man really needs to get a better sense of self-preservation
Sure thing. For now he makes the school hate him, but who cares about 'everyone'. We only see Hayato criticizing his methods and Sensei warning him that it's not healthy. Later in the LN, he goes too far with his "I don't care if I get hurt" attitude to the point when even Yukino starts calling him on his shit. He hurts Yui too.
Fuck Brains Base for removing all of Saki's screentime.
Adding. So it's not that Yukino wasn't doing anything. She knows just how important having Sagami do the closing speech is to Sagami's rep and her won stake to the request she (Yukino) accepted.
And no. Haruno isn't what you norrmally call a 'bitch'. She has her own way of caring for her sister. In the mentioned case, it revolves around the common enemy 'theory'. Harunofag reporting.
Alpha: leader, social person that stands their ground
Beta: follower, social person that avoids conflict
Omega: loner, does not care for social norms/standing
Both the lowest of society and the best of society tend to be Omega, so it's kinda a wild card.(i.e. heroes and villains)
I thought the omega was the lowest caste
Unless I've misunderstood Common enemy theory (which i assumed is about building relationships on others by finding things that you both share dislike of and building off of that) where is the shared resentment, and how is sticking up a roadblock, making Yukino's life harder caring for her sister?
He can be. But the Omega is essentially the rogue. They aren't subservient to alpha males, but aren't alphas themselves and wander.
One thing I feel is how the criticism of 8man from the other characters seems to fall flat. I'm not saying that the criticism is false, but I'd say there's no substance to it much of the time. The other characters can dislike how 8man handled a situation but where were their solutions at the time? If the other characters felt there were better options, why didn't they step in to do something? I claim they are unable to, but for whatever reason I don't know. The situation ends up being in the air. 8man is the only one who decides to step in resolve things, which he does in the way he knows how (self-destructive and likely the only way he knows).
Additionally something I find sad is revealed by 8man's frequent observations of others. He's a loner who has observed enough to develop skills which implies he has observed A LOT. Therefore much of his methods were influenced not only by experiences, but his observations of others. In his observations he probably has never seen his classmates ever resolve problems with their "better options". I conclude: His methods are self-destructive because his classmates have never shown a more positive solution in all his time of observations.
>season 2 never
Something I'd like to see is one other characters qualifying their "better options" and solving a situation with it.
Close but not quite. Using the instance where Hikki wanted to join the tennis club for Saika, Yukino mentions that he will most likely be a common enemy for the tennis club causing them to function or operate better. Development of a group is the is the key reward and this is the same question raised by Haruno as 'quiz'. When Hikki figured it out, Haruno stopped him saying that she hates perceptive kids afterwhich she looks onto Yukino proud as a sister. For one thing at least, Haruno hit 3 birds with 1 stone solving 3 problems by being their common enemy. Solved the growing awkwardness in the service club developing their deeper friendship. Same with the problem at the festival committee, shaping up a more competent team. Lastly, the discord in the relationship between Hikki and Yukino due to the latter's lie. At least in Haruno's eyes, Hikki is Yukino's friend.
So is this getting a season 2 or not?
>other characters qualifying their "better options" and solving a situation with it
Or better yet failing.
Ah now I see. That actually makes a lot of sense. So at the end of the day, could you argue Haruno through playing puppeteer pretty much orchestrated the festival being saved?
Even if it did, they'd need to wait for more volumes since there isn't enough source material for a second season.
Spoiler for VN True End
or so my heart hopes
I still don't get why Saika likes 8man so much anyway.
Makes sense considering he does have more CG`s than the rest of the heroines.
As much as I'd like to say yes I think it's quite farfetched. Her only stake is to see her sister develop. Her manipulating it that far would be counter intuitive. Might have led to success but is not the whole reason.
he is probably getting bullied by other boys for being gay
I am at episode 8 of the anime right now. is it safe to say the rich girl has the hots for blonde popular guy who was her childhood friend? she blushed at him two times already. meanwhile she has only pity for the MC. seeing as the orange-haired girl truly is interested in MC, I would say this is a classic love-triangle with an otaku-aimed "loner" setting.
what all those people need is not romance but same-sex relationships. hyakko did that much better
Wanna check what it was.
>Saika will never walk in on you changing
I hate my life.
wtf, that's gay as shit.
You should probably check this instead.
Rich girl? Yukino? Shes more hostile to Hayato than appreciative. Or are you referring to blonde girl?
>They say that if you change yourself, you'll change the world. but that's a complete lie.
Is it true?
Try asking this guy.
All he said was "hoi" you didn't miss much
I think he's referring to Miura.
Anyone interested in the vita game check out this guy`s channel. He is currently translating to game on youtube http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC18HoEpbNWDZCQbhW0G7z0Q?feature=watch
Better than just reading summaries, I suppose.
Its s shame small projects like these will take years to be translated/never be translated
I love Saika and Hachiman's voice actors. I want them to read me a bed time story in japanese then I end up reading it myself but I still want to hear them telling the story in Japanese.
Why does you caring matter to >>100071130?
He doesn't care. That's what matters to him.
probably because you see yourself in him
but you're wrong, 8man is way cooler than you
probably because you see yourself in him
but you're wrong, 8man is way cooler than you.
No, I meant the female main character, Yuki-something. In the second episode she was blushing when the blonde popular guy said something to her. She seems to be jealous of the blonde chick being his girlfriend.
Nope. Yuki dislikes the popular guy (Hayato) due to a past event that happened between the two.
finally an /a/non that gets it
Huh. First time that I saw that interpretation. Back when I first read that, what I got was that blush was from suddenly being interrupted while in the middle of a pathetic show of anger. Later scenes proved that she's hostile to blonde kid. Also, pity? I wouldn't leave a tennis match to the person I genuinely pity. MC has the privilege of beong given some confidence by the rich girl. If anything, pitying him was are all playful jabs.
who /komachi/ here
>you are a part of the world
8man says some good stuff sometimes, but for the most part, he's just a cynic.
you mean edgy kid?
No, he means cynic.
>misusing the word edgy
When does 8man ever talk overly crass or make racist jokes?
At what fucking point does he ever say that the joker is the greatest villain of all time?
>The word edgy literally has less meaning than literally on this website
Guess I'm adding it to my filter then.
edgy kids detected. I bet your favourite animes are elfen lied and death note and you think you are all grown up for having teen angst. protip: you arent. you may understand how the world works, but not comprehend the consequences of it. come back when you are in your middle 20ies. until then dont discuss realtionships and meaning of life or you will only look stupid.
pic related is me
call me edgy
pro tip: you can't
what angered me most about this anime is that the main girl, the daughter of a guy whose company has an own skyscraper, is going to a community school and not a private one for snobs where everyone is equal and not jealous of each other. that would have solved so many problems.
>disagreeing with trips
Gotta understand the peasants in order to properly control and rule over them.
Do living beings really watch anime in that bottom quality?
These Yahari threads always motivate me to translate faster.
I need to get off my ass.
I see I still haven't made my point about this in my previous posts to enough elitists yet.
Please refer to >>100071130 and >>100071747
I will now await your rage in explaining to me how me streaming is a crime and I should be burned at the stake
Still waiting on you but God's work takes time. Thanks Anon.
It's okay. I can't stop people from eating shit. But if you do, you should expect people to go "What the fuck is this person doing? Why would anyone enjoy eating shit?", which pretty much is the case. But go on, don't let me stop you from doing it. Just don't get so upset when people comment about it. Because who wouldn't find it weird to watch people eat shit and then go "But I like eating shit, so it's okay! I don't care!".
enjoy 20 years from now having your name stored in the NSA database, being forced to do shit for your government/employer for free exposed as anime-freak and charged with piracy
