In a nutshell My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong As I Expected is an anime based on a fairly popular light novel series in Japan. The first season was released by Brains Base in 2013, the second and the third by Feel in 2015 and 2020. For those who have not watched the first, or the second seasons, I will briefly describe the plot. The story takes place in a high school. The main character is Hikigaya Hachiman - a pragmatist, pessimist, disillusioned with life. Friendship and love - he considers all these feelings to be ostentatious; thanks to them, people only deceive each other, trying to become a full-fledged member of the society. Hikigaya has no friends, no enemies - he is simply never noticed. Many of his classmates are not even aware of his existence. This changes, however, when under the pressure from one of the teachers, Hikigaya joins a school club and the main aim of the said club is to help people. At first, the club consisted only of Yukinoshita Yukino - an intelligent, beautiful and self-confident girl who, however, has a worldview very similar to that of Hikigaya, and because of that she is also lonely and it feels as if it were completely impossible to approach her. A little bit later, they are joined by Yui Yuigahama - an open and cheerful girl, who, however, cannot make decisions on her own and tries to be like the others. The plot develops around the relationship of the main characters and their help to other people in the framework of the club's activities. The best thing about this anime is not what the main characters do, but how they do it and what they think at the same time. The emphasis has shifted from actions to their motives and reasoning. And if Hikigaya solves problems in the most practical and cynical way, without thinking about the feelings of other people, then Yukino first of all tries to think about the consequences. The clash of views of the main characters plays an important role in the development of the plot in general and their characters in particular, which makes this anime so interesting. Perhaps, I have never seen such character development in any other series. This is what makes it different from most of the school-life anime series that hardly have any message behind them. And I would not even say that I can regard the series’ characters as children, their reasoning and moral torment quite reach the level of adults, because of this, sometimes it makes you feel uncomfortable, since it is very difficult to explain to yourself that they are not adults. Take for example the fact that if at the beginning of the first season no one knew about the existence of Hikigaya, then after some time, between the second and the third seasons, all classmates know him and many consider him a disgusting hypocrite. And only a few are able to discern in him a real, intelligent and always ready to help individual. I would also like to emphasize the following, you need to watch My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong As I Expected very carefully, paying attention to each and every small detail, otherwise you might get confused in what is happening and you will have to re-watch some episodes, or you may even be disappointed in the anime and stop watching it altogether. The third season is difficult in terms of what is happening, and, so to speak, "it is more mature." Obviously, no questions arise, when watching the first season. It is an open secret that, all the motives of certain actions lie on the surface, and there is no need to get to the bottom of the truth. The second and third seasons, however, are much more complicated and confusing. And I love it. I had to re-watch some episodes a couple of times to understand what a character is talking about and why they are saying it. I would also like to note that the characters have changed a lot. I saw a lot of frustrated remarks about how the characters are not the same as before, that Hikigaya became a mess and lost everything that the audience loved him for. This is not true. Hikigaya was a kind person before and still is, sacrificing himself for the common good. It is just that some people mistake such manifestations of selflessness for cynicism and cruelty. In this, the viewers are very similar to the supporting characters of My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong As I Expected, what I mean is that there are also some classmates, who perceive Hiki's actions only as cruelty and hypocrisy and only a few understand why he does this. Other characters also change and develop under the influence of each other. This is what makes this series that amazing. Every character is needed, every small detail is needed. Animation Art wise, the progress is evident. When I first saw the third season, I could not believe my eyes. Everything looks a little bit better. This is what this anime needed. Hikigaya began to look much more realistic, now it is easier to imagine him as a real person with a complex character. To be honest, for this anime, animation is not the main thing, and the one that was before that in first season was more than okay. But when I saw how it changed in the third season, God, what an eye candy! Music Delicate piano motifs combined with soft melodies perfectly suit My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong As I Expected. The music is on a very high level. There are no complaints whatsoever, the composer did their best to make the OST that would make the series even more enjoyable for the viewer. The main thing here, of course, is the work of the voice actors, who have done a tremendous job so that fans can enjoy My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong As I Expected to the fullest. Criticism While I did praise the first and the second seasons of My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong As I Expected, the third season is not without flaws; nothing is. I found some of the drama in the third season somewhat unnecessary and even forced sometimes, which was very displeasing. It is obvious that the characters need to solve all the issues and explain themselves to each other, but it just looks a little bit forced. As far as I know, the anime adaptation did skip some of the details from the light novel, maybe this is what made it look somewhat crumpled. Do not get me wrong, it still is a very enjoyable experience. Yes, some of the moments did look somewhat forced, but I would not call it that much of a problem, it is more of a minor flaw than anything else. Never mind that. Score Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru.-8/10; Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Zoku-9/10; Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Kan-8/10. Overall I understand perfectly well that the third season has turned into something like waifu/ship wars among some of the fans and that many fans are very upset that their ship was not successful. But aside from all these unnecessary details, just relax, turn on your brain and enjoy another portion of the complex human relationships of Hikigaya and the people around him. The very fact that the anime does not leave anyone indifferent speaks of its originality. And whether you like it or not is largely up to you. The main thing is to try to understand why the characters say this, or that, and if it did not work out on the first try, then reconsider the moment and think for a few extra minutes. Only in this case, will Oregairu reveal itself to you in all its glory. Yes, this is the same anime where all the characters are excellently written, including the plot. Everything that happens is happening for a reason that you need to figure out. Is it worth it? I do not know. I enjoyed watching it. Will you like it? Try and find out.
