Yukinoshita may have differing opinions about this but I have to admit, this line of Hachiman’s resounded strongly with me. There’s something admirable with his background. Well, we can’t know for sure if he never did have any friends back in his youth but at least there’s a legit source where his strength comes from. He may not stand out and may not even be seen as the hero by the norms of society but his resolve is a symbol for loners like me.
I actually feel sorry for Hayato for receiving some of Hachiman’s animosity. It’s not his fault and he doesn’t look villainous but I guess it’s common for loners like Hachiman to feel jealous every now and then. After all, these are the people who society holds in high regard. The extroverts, the outspoken ones. The very society that condemns loners to hell.
I also liked Yukinoshita’s showdown with Miura. Honestly, that bitch was grinding on my nerves ever since she showed her attitude in episode 2. Then again, Yukinoshita is no sweet angel. I guess bitches like these two have the tendency to sniff each other out and kick the other’s ass.
Oregairu has kept me interested so far, mostly with Hachiman’s monologue but to be honest, I’m more interested in Yukinoshita’s perspective. There must’ve been a reason why she goes as far as to treat others trash and think of herself so damn highly.
