Different Methods, Same Goal

I am the kind of viewer who enjoys stimulating conversations in anime. Whether they add in pieces of nonsense or sophisticated pretenses, conversations pertaining to psychology or philosophy, basically anything directed at humanity is a good topic to suck me in and Oregairu presented that nicely.

And I guess the biggest spice that I have seen so far is how this series aims to solve such conflicts using different methods. Maybe I’m going overboard in assuming this, but the problems that they may encounter from here on may be humanity’s common concerns. Things we easily shrug away yet can still be solved using various approaches. Each having their own impact yet delivering a similar solution.

Such was the case with Yui’s concerns. Come to think of it, what does matter more to a girl who plans on giving chocolate to the person she likes? Does the saying “it’s the thought that counts” hold true over “it’s the taste that matters”?

The concept of opposites attracting in an anime is no new feat but this series reminds me on how two opposite things could still lie on a same, common ground. Hachiman and Yukino’s way of thinking may be different but let’s face it. They do, to an extent, share similar personalities.

Intellectually stimulating backed with good visual quality and a prolific cast. Any reason why I SHOULD NOT watch this? ;D

    Not exactly sure why, but watching this sort of reminded me of Hyouka ^^;.

    A friend noted how this is similar to Senjogahara and Araragi’s conversations, although, less brutal >_<;

    True, this is somewhat like a more subdued version of Bakemonogatari if you strip out the bakemonos and the crazy battles.
