Unique Anime Which You Must Watch.
31 July 2013 | by (Dhaka,Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

Now I'll admit the first time I saw the sypnosis for this anime I thought Oregairu would be a stereotypical romcom anime. Just think about it. There are two female main characters and a male character. Male character is an outcast. One of the female characters is the school's most beautiful girl. How original. But when I finished the first episode of this anime. I realized that this was something else. Something that manages to stray away from the norm and become something really special.

Story- Now the story centers around Hikigaya Hachiman. A high school student who is shunned by pretty much the whole school.Luckily this suits him perfectly as he prefers to be a loner and doesn't want to make friends. But his "happy" life soon crumbles as his teacher forces him to join a club which is supposed to help people with their problems.Even worse, the club also has the smart and beautiful "ice-cold Beauty" Yukino Yukinoshita.(nicknamed that for her cold personality). Hilarity ensues. Now the story basically revolves on the club helping out on peoples' requests and problems. Although the problem's are simple the way the main characters solve the problem isn't. The comedy usually revolves around Hachiman and Yukino's witty dialogue and sarcasm.(which is really funny btw).

Art- The art was good most of the time. Backgrounds were filled with radiant colors and were nicely drawn.Character designs were also done well and fit well with the personalities of the characters. There was an episode or two where there was a small drop in animation. But all in all it's pretty good.

Sound- The sound was quite impressive. The soundtrack fits in really well with the anime. The opening "Yukitoki", is a really catchy song and I had myself humming to it in the shower for days after I listened to it. The ending, I'm afraid. Wasn't as well but is adequate for an ending.

Character-Now this is where Oregairu excels the most. Let's begin with Hikigaya Hachiman. Hachiman's twisted view of life and society are definitely one of the most captivating view's of life that i've ever seen. His views of life actually affected my way of viewing life. His monologues are also enjoyable and show off a bit more of his personality.

Yuki Yukinoshita is almost the complete opposite of Hachiman. She is smart, beautiful, and rich.But the interesting thing is. She doesn't have friends either. But unlike Hachiman her reason for not having friends is her icy demeanor and being too perfect. She unlike Hachiman believes that change is a good thing. Her smart remarks are funny and her quarrels with Hachiman are hilarious. Over all she is also a nice character.

Yui Yuigahama at the start would seem to be a completely stereotypical character.Although I couldn't say I loved her as much as I loved the other two main characters I would have to admit that without her in this anime this anime wouldn't be as good. She serves as the glue that keeps the club together. Her character does develop to be more independent and helpful.

In the end Oregairu really did turn out to be a good series. What I thought would be a stereotypical romcom anime turned out to be something more than that. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who watches anime.
