YES! YEEEEESSSSS!!!!!!


My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Anime Season 3 Premieres on April 9


Finishing the LN Now. The ending is wayyy overdue, like, nearing FMP territory. But, meh. WW didn't finish the LN until last November, so, what could they do?

Anime only ending? Adapt ANOTHER?

Utter foolishness. Anta baka. What a Hachiman.


SPOILER: Show
ANOTHER borders on EoE passive-aggressiveness towards fans who "didn't get the message".
Sure, no one dies, but you don't get a clear-cut Hiki-Yui romance either. You get a romance that struggles to take off, can't express "I love you", and gives off every indication of failing.

Not to mention; Hachiman giving up on "genuine".

It's good to have a complete adaptation once in a while. I'm hoping for more amazing character animation, the second season was gorgeous.

I've now finished the LN (well, as far as I can; there's no official English release of volume 14, and the fan translation of the last two chapters was more of an "overview".)

I can say that my enthusiasm is kind of curbed. There's moments I'm still looking forward to being adapted (to include the ones I haven't actually read), but it seems W.W. gave into certain pressures, and avoided the "bittersweet ending" he talked about in interviews. And hinted in almost every volume from 1-11.

And he didn't really complete Hayama's character arc. Or Haruno's. Yui gets all these dark-sounding interludes and memorandums and... it never goes anywhere.
Not even after...

SPOILER: Show
Haruno reveals "co-dependency" is afoot in the three's relationship, making Yui really, really angry.


Oh and Yukino, never reveals what the purpose of the Service Club was to Hachiman.

SPOILER: Show
She drew it up to help Hachiman specifically, to fix the loner attitude she feels she caused him to adopt due to the accident.


In so far as this adapts Volume 12, which is tonally pretty consistent with what came before, I think it'll be good (Haruno introducing more DOUBT into the Service Club). After that, things get more spotty.

There's no ".5" Volumes left to adapt, so I wonder what the OVA will b-- oh God, please don't be ANOTHER...

EDIT:

Here's a PV with what sounds like the new OP for this season:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_Cvvl1fVBE

You can turn on auto-translate and pick out some of the words. Hikki is saying something along the lines of "We won't understand if it's not said. Even if it's said, it won't be conveyed."

I can't recall where exactly I heard him say this, though it's similar to his response to Yui in Zoku episode 8, right before he asks for "something genuine".

Woops, spoke too soon, Volume 14.5 confirmed:

https://www.reddit.com/r/LightNovels/co ... ort_story/

Wish list:
* Haruno's invocation of
SPOILER: Show
co-dependence
is directly confronted, and defeated.
* Haruno and Hayama get their character arcs resolved.
Hayama finally gets forgiveness from Haruno (he already got it from Yukino last season), Haruno manages some sort of truce with Yukino, and gets the "fellow-traveler" she wishes for so she can stop being lonely. And a bitch.

* Yukimom actually does something to be a threat. More so than she was in Volume 13 or 14.
* Ebina is convinced to come out of her shell.

On top of the bonus volume, there will also be an anthology series with stories written by authors other than WW.
I'm looking forward to stories written from other character's perspective. Kawasaki-something, and Komachi especially.

It like... robs anything Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna was trying to say... then again, so does 02's epilogue.

I haven't even seen that yet, and it was released only a month before this series premiers. Literally two weeks ago.

I just... don't get what they're thinking. :???:

yeah, if they wanted to reboot the series, they should have released Kizuna AFTER the series, not beforehand, imo.
