Fortitude of Solitude

Hachiman is a one-man baseball team

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.

    The monologues are hilarious XD. Hayato seem more like someone who is trying to be “all things to all people” kind of guy. Depending on how one looks at it and depending on how this is used, it could be viewed as a good thing or a bad thing :p. Though in the end, he is mostly just kissing asses all over the place, and giving in to the most assertive or influential person ^^;.

    But to be honest, I was surprised that he was willing to go so far as to bow down and kiss that bitch’s ass. Not everyone has the pride to swallow all the humiliation in order to protect other people’s pride… Or that yaoi pair of his. O_O

    True. Though ass kissing is still ass kissing :p.

    BTW, I don’t suppose you would resume watching Uchuu Kyoudai any time soon I guess? The recap episodes are done I think, next episode will continue the story. Art and animation quality really improved since this season started ^^;. Makes me wish they went back and redo all of the earlier episodes OTL.
