Synopsis

This romantic comedy revolves around an antisocial high school student named Hikigaya Hachiman with a distorted view on life and no friends or girlfriend. When he sees his classmates talking excitedly about living their adolescent lives, he mutters: "They're a bunch of liars." When he is asked about his future dreams, he responds, "Not working." A teacher gets Hachiman to join the "Volunteer Service" club, which happens to have the school's prettiest girl, Yukinoshita Yukino.

Yahari Ore isn't the first anime to tackle the anti-social protagonist, but it certainly captures it perfectly with its characters and deadpan writing. Like others have said before, you may go into this expecting a typical rom-com but will instead come out of it lashed by the harsh views of our characters. This however, is why this anime stands out from so many in the genre. It's charming, funny and yet bluntly realistic. Far too often rom-coms get stuck in the fairy tale realm of romance stories, or get too wrapped up in the emotional drama/turmoil that can be present in youthful romance. Those read more

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 read more

"Some walks you have to take alone."

Somewhere along the way, I read that quote. The source is unknown to me, but I found that it struck key point in life. Well, I guess I can't generalize and say everyone's life, but I would say most people have had times they felt they couldn't count on anyone. Life is full of things that make us want to isolate people we don't understand and make us want to quit life. High school is full of those moments, those "emotional roller coaster" kind of moments. Basically, it can be related to my understanding of Oregairu, I'll kind read more

How do you feel / How did you feel when you enter(ed) your high-school every morning? Were you greeted by an accumulation of friends? Did the girls all swarm you and fawn over what you did? Were you always the "popular" kid?... No? Me neither, and that's why I enjoy this anime.

The anime revolves around protagonist Hikigaya Hachiman who is a entirely rejected and remarked as "gross" by those who know him. His goal in his high-school life is to remain a loner and to avoid making friends. He does what he can to make himself unnoticeable by his classmates and he doesn't draw read more

Recommendations

The series shares the same high school setting but tackles college level of social psychology in subject. There's also the angsty or grumpy yet lethargic main character which is most of the time played for jokes, though their use of humor is a bit in contrast since the other one is lighthearted, while the latter is dark and comically edgy. You also have the Queen/Empress who has a good ability in expressive persuasion through social engineering which makes you want to engineer them socially if you get my expression =P.
'Teen Romantic Comedy Gone Wrong', or whatever typically long-winded light novel jibberish 'Yahari Ore' translates into shows all the signs of being Boku Friendship DONE RIGHT. As another user noted with their recommendation, Boku Friendship gradually turns into something of a full-on ecchi harem fest. Unlike Yahari, Boku wa started out as purely lighthearted rom-com fluff--causing later developments that expand on previously 1D comic relief characters to be awkward & its lead's turn towards a more... emo stance coming across unnaturally. Yahari one-upped this by presenting its characters as humans with relatable social difficulties from the get-go whilst still retaining sharp, witty dialogue.

Instead of, say, a blonde Japanese guy everyone assumes is a thug without talking to him & a blonde American-tit'd #1 school idol that refers to herself as a Goddess and has men kneeling before her at will, Yahari presents a dysfunctional lead trio, consisting of: a misanthrope lead pushed away from social contact by rejection, a beautiful girl well aware that her physical beauty causes others problems & an average 'TRYING TO FIT IN' girl--her attempts to climb the social ladder being illustrated nicely in ep2.

While it's true that Yahari still leans more on the side of fantasy than reality with its 1x loner guy x2 beautiful girls in an empty club premise, the set-up/presentation/illustration of social woes is executed much better than in most other similar works. Paint me impressed!
If you like one of these male leads you should enjoy the perspective of the other. While Yuhari is really starred by the main female instead of the main male the females have a lot in common in terms of being independent, strong and confusing for the males to figure out.

Both shows feature limited but well developed for 12 ep anime series supporting casts.

Bakemonogatari is basically the more supernatural (Yahari is pretty much just another HS anime) and higher quality in every way version of Love Comedy but if you love the type of characters the leads are you will still enjoy Love Comedy a great deal.
Both have anti-social people forced to join a club.

Series that are being anti-genre towards rom-com and have their witty (mostly sarcastic) dialogues as arsenal on their series. Both main characters have introvert personality that has a lot of internal monologue throughout the series which usually has a slapstick on its end although SNAFU has much pessimistic dark humor (which more entertaining to mature audiences) than Watamote.
Most of its dissimilarities is their character setup, though Hikigaya might be Kurokis male comparison he doesn't have a bad habit on succumbing himself on playing games but have his experience on real lady friends from her past, He is also more tolerant on his societal dysfunction or pretty much he just hates having friends, closest relationship would be acquaintance, also SNAFU doesn't circle much on the Male lead alone while Watamote is only focused on Kurokis daily life adventure.
Both shows feature male leads that are realistic (or pessimistic) narrators. While Hachiman's outlook tends to focus on the dark-side of individuals and society, Kyon in Melancholy carries only a sarcastic and cynical tone in his narration. Both leads are dropped into after-school clubs against their will, filled with interesting characters. Kyon deals with an energetic, enigmatic female lead whose antics often place its club members in trouble. Hachiman on the other hand, works with an ice-queen club leader and carries significantly less pull than Kyon. The similarities of the male leads and the environments each is placed makes these shows easy to compare, even if the themes are dramatically different.
