Oregairu Analysis – And Then, Yukinoshita Haruno Launched Operation Fire Doughnut! (Part 2)

Continue from part 1, Hikigaya Hachiman (比企谷 八幡) & Yukinoshita Haruno (雪ノ下 陽乃) met his middle school friend, Orimoto Kaori (折本 かおり) and her friend. Orimoto asks him Haruno is his girlfriend or not but after compared them a bit, she is confident they can’t be couple. After Haruno observed new characters a bit, she asked him they’re his friends.

In this part 2, I recommend manga Yahari Ore no Seishun Rabu Kome wa Machigatteiru. -Monologue- (やはり俺の青春ラブコメはまちがっている。-妄言録-), Oregairu (俺ガイル) v8 because you can find expression of characters very well. I can find Haruno’s plan because of this. Thank you very much, mangaka, for his drawing skill.

Ps.

  • Please read Attention page first, to let you understand that my all analysis are not 100% right. All of them mix with my assumption/guess as well, more or less. If you expect absolute reliable analysis, I can’t provide them to you.
  • This Oregairu analysis is full of Spoil. I recommend you to read/watch LN/anime/manga before proceed.
Operation Fire Doughnut
 Master Donut, Chiba Perfecture, Tokyo
 Evening with the setting sun
 LN v8, Anime Zoku ep 3-4, Manga -Monologue- v7

Phew… It seems bad omen fades away.

Yukinoshita Haruno asks Hikigaya Hachiman what their relationship is. (Oregairu Zoku ep 3)

Please give me answer you want the most~

Haruno scaaaans Orimoto’s being after Orimoto introduces herself. And then, she introduces her name as well but can’t tell what relationship of her and Hachiman so she …asks him!, she snuggles up to him and looks at him from below.

Yukinoshita Haruno doesn't think Hikigaya Hachiman is her friend. (Oregairu Zoku ep 3)

Or I will look for the most suitable answer!

She doesn’t think they would be friends then it should be Onee-san or older sister-in-law. While thinking, she taps her chin and looks at him… She grinned as she can think a great answer! (meddlesome girlfriend)

Yukinoshita Haruno announces relationship of her and Hikigaya Hachiman. (Oregairu Zoku ep 3)

This is the choice I like the most!

  • I notice something …paused a bit in this scene. After Orimoto commented about relationship of Hachiman & Haruno, Haruno …
    1. isn’t pleased Orimoto’s comment.
    2. or want to tease him again~
    3. or it is just her instinct to say something she wants the most.
    4. or all of them. So when Orimoto introduced herself, Haruno tries to show her advantage position and wants to tell Orimoto indirectly and secretly that they can be couple. (ps. all of these happens in Haruno’s head only) That’s why Haruno introduces their relationship like that.
  • Haruno shows that she and Hachiman can be close and she is closer to him more than Orimoto. (friend in middle school who said something rude to them.) The evidence is how she acts. (snuggle up and looks at him from below.)
    ps. When I read manga -Monologue- vol 7, I notice Haruno’s eyes when she looks at Hachiman is not just want to tease. Maybe it’s just me, maybe it’s not, I see…
  • Not only that, Haruno pretends to think about relationship of her and Hachiman. She said four choices and after looked at him, she announces the only answer that pleases her the most! I can see she teases him again (never miss even small chance, doesn’t she?).
Yukinoshita Haruno announces relationship of her and Hikigaya Hachiman. (Oregairu Zoku ep 3)

I want this choice~ What about you think, Hachiman? (A lot of Haru points!)

Maybe, she doesn’t want their relationship is just only that.

Hikigaya Hachiman suggests Yukinoshita Haruno their relationship. (Oregairu Zoku ep 3)

What’s with this lovable confession?

However, Haruno’s recommendation was cut off by Hachiman as he suggests “upperclassman from school” instead. After listened to his kinda cold answer, she makes a pouty, sulky face. (Her reaction makes him wants to poke her cheeks.)

When Haruno makes a pouty, sulky face (look at the left pic below) to Hachiman after he blows her unbelievable choice away, I feel she gains a lot of cute Haru points from him. In LN only, you can see he wants to poke her cheeks as punishment because her (repeat – the left pic below) response is too cute. Just like in LN v4, when Hiratsuka Shizuka (平塚 静) lets him know how Hikigaya Komachi (比企谷 小町) loves her Oni-chan (and Hiratsuka-sensei says that in front of Komachi too), Komachi’s expression that time and Haruno this time make him feel embarrassed so much he wants to poke Komachi’s forehead and Haruno’s cheek as punishment so he can hide his embarrassed feeling. However, like he thinks, he can’t do something like that to Haruno (older than him).

After Haruno finish teasing Hachiman. As she (and maybe Orimoto as well) is sociable, they start conversation smoothly. Orimoto comments their seniority relationship is nice. Haruno mentions more that isn’t all there is to it though! And 3 girls continue talking with each other. (??)

  • Haruno’s teasing to Hachiman is successful because even Orimoto mentions their relationship is nice. Why not? Haruno intends to let her know they are close more than Orimoto who just said earlier they can’t be couple, thinks. I feel Haruno doesn’t like Orimoto because she looks down on him, so she wants to fight back Orimoto’s underestimate. But we know again, Haruno is the genius who likes to hide her true intention so she acts like this and no one know her intention.
    ps. But even Haruno doesn’t know how Hachiman feel after she acts like that either. (Too bad. I want to know how she feels if she knows he wants to poke her cheek because she make him feel embarrassed.) …Let my imagination end for now.
  • Maybe this is just my assumption. But somehow, Haruno wants to say her and Hachiman’s relationship is just not ONLY seniority relationship? Yes or no, her speech was flow away by girl talk so no one notice this… But I will not let her suspicious but valuable hint fades away so easily like that. So let me pin this up.

If you have Pandora’s Box, why not open it?

And then, their social talk has ended but Haruno crosses her arms in a dignified manner, she starts new topic with her thin smile. She asks Orimoto about interesting stories back when Hachiman were in the same middle school.

…I think I hear thunder somewhere.

Her question makes Orimoto tried to recall her memories. And then, Haruno incites her more with cheerful tone. She wants to hear about Hachiman’s love stories!

Yukinoshita Haruno asks for Hikigaya Hachiman's love stories! (Oregairu Zoku ep 3)

Please tell Onee-san~

  • In part 1, when Haruno wants to ask something important to her, she will pose like the commander. And this time, she poses in a dignified manner . Both of her poses are her unique reactions before launches important topic she wants to know so much. Moreover, I notice her all important topics of hers are about Hachiman.

I read many comments about the reasons Haruno asks Orimoto about Hachiman’s love stories. Some people (& Hachiman as well) think she is just messing around. Some people thinks she wants to tease him only.

For me, I don’t know why she did something like this, so I think she is just messing around like Hachiman mentioned in anime Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. Zoku (やはり俺の青春ラブコメはまちがっている。続) ep 3. (I should believe in MC’s monologue, right?) However, right now, I have different comment. Her intention is not for messing around or teasing him or curious about other people‘s past.

Haruno just wants to know Hachiman’s past involved with love story but not because she is high level sociable so she needs to know everyone’s past or wants to has girl talk. I will leave it at this point. In other parts of operation fire doughnut will give you answer later.

  • As Orimoto is Hachiman’s middle schooler & they was in the same class. For Haruno, Orimoto is like a valuable treasure box. If she wants to know about his past during middle age, oop, sorry, middle school period, Orimoto is great primary source! (descend from heaven!)
  • I will tell you again that Haruno is the character who always hides her true intention when she acts. So this time, she pretends to has girl talk with Orimoto and Nakasomething. It’s not because she wants to build connection with them, but she wants to copy ultra rare data of Hachiman from Orimoto.
  • With this ultra rare treasure box in her hands, Haruno can get valuable information about the person she is interested so much. (Just like when she asked about his hobbies when he stays at home from his sister, Komachi in Drama CD v7). Moreover, she asks with cheerful tone to urge Orimoto revealing his love stories.
  • However, Haruno would never expect treasure box in front of her is Pandora’s box. And with her curiosity, she doesn’t hesitate to open it but whatever in this box is not as she expects

Absolute Zero skill makes her mask drops.

With Haruno’s effort, Orimoto finally remembers “an interesting love story” but she doesn’t try to conceal even if that story is involved with herself directly. She said it so easily that Hachiman confessed to her back then…

  • Orimoto activates her “Absolute Zero skill” in her words, The whole area and all characters there, Hachiman, Orimoto’s friend, was frozen by her skill.

    Maybe even staffs in the shop too.

    Even Haruno who has wearing perfect mask, since although she is the one who asked Orimoto about his love stories, still can’t deal with surprise attack, AZ skill. That’s why her mask drops to the floor like that. But she hurries and wear it immediately with speed of light, so she can pretend to be excited after know this unbelievable love story of Hachiman. I assume Haruno is used to be sociable, so she can maintain her expression and talks with two girls like there’s no any heavy damage in her heart.
    ps. In LN and anime, I don’t feel anything or don’t know before that this period about 1-2 seconds only, is everything and has important meaning, if I never read manga called “Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. -Monologue- v7”, no way I will know this.

    It’s not like I want to brag/show off, I want to tell you how/where I found it only. In anime Zoku (or maybe even in LN), I can’t see Haruno’s freezing expression at all, but in -Monologue- manga, mangaka drew her and other people’s expression very well.

In case of Hachiman, he still is frozen…

Haruno and Orimoto’s friend (Nakasomething) are very excited after listen to Orimoto’s announce, they join conversation again. Orimoto, as is in the center spotlight!, gives them more detail.

Girls like topic like this. Trio girls build private chat room asap to discuss the hottest topic. Maybe it’s my imagination again but I think Orimoto doesn’t hesitate to be in the center attention. Just like what Hachiman said in LN v4, some people can use bitter story of us, to discuss with other people so s/he can build relationship easier by using our bitter story as tool. And this time, I feel she is proud to use his bitter story so she can get attention and to let Haruno and Nakasomething know that she has someone confessed to her. At the same time, when I saw her awkward expression (in manga -Monologue-), I assume it’s awkward for her because uninteresting boy like him, is the one who confessed to her.

It’s not like she’s wrong to has desire to be shine. I guess this desire is hidden in everyone’s heart. She just doesn’t realize what she has done. She think this is her own story as well so she doesn’t mind to tell, but she doesn’t consider Hachiman’s feeling and doesn’t realize she sacrifices him.

 In case of Haruno, her wrath will come soon.

Continue from Orimoto’s hot topic. She leaks more detail that Hachiman’s confession freaked her out so much because they never even talked to each other before. While he is still frozen and sinks at the bottom of the deep sea of logic, Haruno responses like she is surprised after she listened to his love story, but Hachiman notices her eyes were dyed with a sadistic color when she repeats he confessed to Orimoto. (In anime, you will never notice this, because Haruno’s response is different from LN and manga).

So he forces himself to give some response that it happened from a long time ago. Orimoto agrees with him but she comments that’s why it doesn’t really matter.

With Haruno’s eyes were dyed with a sadistic color, I will point that this is the starting point because it can explain how she feels. And when she wants Hachiman’s confirmation about Orimoto’s words, both of hints let me know Haruno is not different from others. She has feeling. And what happened in LN v8 and manga -Monologue- v7, can explain very well that she is normal human.

Notice #1

I will give you notices. The first notice is, When Haruno asks Orimoto about Hachiman’s love stories. Why did she want to know about this? If a person wants to ask your middle school friend about your stories in the past. Yes, that person would expect to know stories when you attended to middle school. Of course, Love story is one of interesting story.
However, Haruno tried to stir up the mood and gave Orimoto’s direction from interesting stories -> love stories instead. So maybe Hachiman’s love stories is her final goal/purpose? If this is true, the second notice comes.

Notice #2

The second notice is, like when we saw scenes in anime, Orimoto and her friends bought doughnuts and drinks already and they would look for seats to eat. However, they can’t stop conversation by themselves because Haruno is older than them and when adult wants to talk with them (younger girls), they need to join it even if they still are holding their trays and luggage. (and although one of them might be tired too, look from Nakasomething’s expression when Orimoto greets Hachiman.)

So Haruno still has advantage. However, she is sociable. She knows she has limited time to ask them. So if she lets Orimoto tell her his interesting stories first, love stories later, she would never achieve her final purpose.

Ask directly or indirectly.

When you want to ask people sensitive topics.

  1. Will you ask them directly? (like when Yuigahama Yui (由比ヶ浜 結衣) asked her friends about trio boys directly and was suspected by Miura Yumiko (三浦 優美子) and Ebina Hina (海老名 姫菜) immediately.)
  2. Or you will talk/ask with normal topics first, and ask topics you want to know for real later?
    Normally, Haruno would choose 2). It’s safe choice but with limited time, she can’t choose this choice. She is very clever, so she solved this problem by asking Hachiman love stories directly but with her cheerful mask, she can become Onee-san who want to know love stories of Hikigaya-kun!

    With her cheerful mask, she is capable to talk easier. (Don’t tell me she had ever been to masquerade party before?)

Conclusion from notices

So with these 2 notices, Haruno wants to know Hachiman’s love stories in the past as the first priority.

So much that she will not let Orimoto and her friend go until she achieved it.
So much that other interesting stories are not important as much as love stories of Hachiman.

I can’t underestimate Haruno’s struggling and her brain function at all. However, with these notices, I will assume she is very fond of Hachiman so much and want to know everything about him, especially in his own love story. It’s not for the sake of her younger sister, but for her own self-satisfaction.

She never guess it will be like this.

Finally, Haruno opened Pandora’s box and saw … in it. However, even Haruno who has high intelligence and can figure people’s feeling out so easily, would never guess that the one who got attention from Hachiman is the girl in front of her. And this girl is the one who mentioned before that it’s no way she and him will be the couple! (Haruno figures it out that Orimoto would not even be his friend because this girl insulted him. So she doesn’t expect Orimoto will even be his first crush before as well.)

Heavy Damage from Orimoto’s combo attack

This surprising reality in Pandora’s box damages her so much.

  1. For Haruno, it’s like she was attacked by ultimate wide area skill – Absolute Zero. (just like Hachiman’s case) – From her frozen expression I mentioned before, it’s like her mind wiped out and was frozen like that.
  2. And with the second combo, Thunder Bolt – will cast on her only. (This ultimate spell can attack just one person.) With her frozen expression so it is full with ice/water, Thunder bolt will increase her damage to maximum level!
Ultimate spell - Thunder Bolt!

Ultimate spell – Thunder Bolt!

I compare Thunder Bolt because while Haruno starts recovering from damage earlier, her brain starts absorbing the reality, the reality that with of all people around Hachiman, Orimoto, the girl in front of her who is confident that HachixHaru is impossible and insulted him many times, is his crush!! So that’s why she repeats Orimoto’s word again and looks at him because she needs his confirmation. I assume that somewhere in her mind, can’t accept this ridiculous information. Maybe she wants him to say it’s not true, Orimoto just brag or something like that. That’s why she wants his confirmation silently by looking at him. But his awkward response confirms Orimoto’s words. The thunder bolt spell descends to Haruno because Hachiman confirms Orimoto’s words. …I think I hear something crack.

Can you imagine Haruno is burning silently?

Why are her damages so much with just only one speech? 

How is she feeling after knew this truth?

What is the gigantic flame in her heart? Or could it be jealous? (Read more to see why I think Haruno is jealous.)

May the force be with her.

Countdown 10

Talk about her health. Yes, she can survive. Don’t forget she is Haruno, the sun. Her HP is recovering, but burning wounds can’t heal so easily. Even so, her perfect mask serves her  very well and runs with max power. She still talks with 2 girls excitedly like nothing happened.

COUNTDOWN 9

You can notice when she asks Orimoto to tell her more (in anime), her expression is cheerful more than her usual cheerful mask.

Yukinoshita Haruno wants more details. (Oregairu Zoku ep 3)

I am FINE.

It’s like she struggles to hold this mask with all her might although her HP is only 1. I can’t underestimate her, really. I can imagine she’s shaking so much because her burning flame in mind but she still can restrain herself. No one around her know what is happening to her.

COUNTDOWN 8

Haruno still is very angry and jealous. Her suspicious speech and sadistic eyes are signals.

You don’t say, Hikigayakun confessed huh~.”

Her speech and eyes makes me feel she is so upset. Furthermore, …

  • maybe she wants Hachiman to confirm or explain more about this nonsense love story.
  • or maybe she hopes to hear from his own mouth this is just a joke.

Haruno’s expression and response after she heard from Orimoto that Hachiman ever confessed love to her before, confirm my assumption. Because if she is not jealous, her eyes would not be like that while she asks him. You can’t believe words from people, but you can look for truth from body language. So if she asks Hachiman about this only but no feeling like that, her eyes would not change like that. It’s too bad in anime and manga didn’t show her eyes to us.

For Haruno who can hide her own emotion and intention like professional. You can grasp some truth from her eyes. I notice she shows her emotion via Hachiman’s monologue in LN v4. When Yuigahama pulls him away from Haruno, her eyes tells me “the real emotion” toward Yuigahama. If LN v4 can’t make you realize her emotion during that time clearly, I recommend anime ss1 ep8 and manga -Monologue- v4 (To tell you the truth, I confirm this assumption because these references.)

Explain, please~

Explain, please~ Just tell me this is not true.

The monster within her chest now is running rampage (what the? She came from HP?) and her health points are almost zero, but she still chat with 2 girls smoothly with restraint although she got heavy damage from Absolute Zero and Thunder Bolt. (Maybe her RES is very high.)


This is not the first time Haruno feels like this. In LN v4&5, her feeling is toward “a certain girl”.

Yukinoshita Haruno (雪ノ下 陽乃) is upsets because "an unknown girl" drags Hikigaya Hachiman (比企谷 八幡) from her. (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. Yahari Ore no Seishun Rabukome wa Machigatte Iru. Oregairu My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, as I Expected. My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU やはり俺の青春ラブコメはまちがっている。 俺ガイル 果然我的青春戀愛喜劇搞錯了。 anime ep 8)Yukinoshita Haruno (雪ノ下 陽乃) pulls Hikigaya Hachiman (比企谷 八幡)'s ear as punishment he has an affair. (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. Yahari Ore no Seishun Rabukome wa Machigatte Iru. Oregairu My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, as I Expected. My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU やはり俺の青春ラブコメはまちがっている。 俺ガイル 果然我的青春戀愛喜劇搞錯了。 ep 9)

Click at the image to read when Haruno is feel like that (the first pic is what happened in LN v4, the second is v5).


COUNTDOWN 7

Haruno’s chest monster makes me guess that she might plan to do something to the girl in front of her like she did with Sagami Minami during school festival period. However, the possibility is very low too because when their girly conversation ends, 2 girls would move to other seats to eat their (cold) doughnuts. Then whatever she wants to do, would be canceled.

COUNTDOWN 6

I don’t know what Haruno’s plan is (or maybe none), but after Hachiman responded his love story happened from a long time ago, Orimoto agreed with him but she commented more that it doesn’t really matter! How is Haruno feeling when she heard this forbidden speech?

COUNTDOWN 5

This girl almost makes Haruno burn after knew shocking reality. Her painful wounds still need to be recovered but the third attack has come! Her chest monster starts rampaging again because of Orimoto’s forbidden wide area dark magic – (I can’t tell this magic’s name because it’s forbidden.) and monster sends her fiery messages continuously.

…Cracking Sound

COUNTDOWN 0 (Because of dark magic)

I assume Haruno wants to listen to Hachiman’s love stories so she can grasp what kind of girl he likes so she would remember this for important reference as well (just like when she knew his ears are sensitive (LN v3, anime ss 1 ep 6, manga -monologue- v3), she always use this reference to tease him.), but… his favorite type is the girl in front of her!?

This girl who says it’s impossible Hachiman can be her boyfriend?

Plus, this girl said it excitedly that the dream she wishes to achieve too someday, doesn’t really matter!?

Orimoto Kaori doesn't care Hikigaya Hachiman's confession. (Oregairu Zoku ep 3)

Orimoto – Who cares now, right? right? right?

doesn’t really matter

doesn’t really matter

doesn’t really matter

doesn’t really matter

doesn’t really matter
doesn’t really matter

KABOOOOOM!!!!!

Her wrath has come.

Fire Doughnut or her chest monster?

And then, even Haruno’s maximum effort to restrain her fiery emotions, she is still a normal human like everyone who can’t be maintain her emotion forever. Haruno’s chest monster can’t be controlled anymore. I assume that Orimoto is her target she needs to be eli******,

  • or else her chest monster will never be satisfied?
  • or she wants to confirm Hachiman still has feeling for Orimoto or not?
  • or she wants to blow Orimoto (l*** rival) away.

Haruno is the same as Hayama Hayato. She has high intelligence like a supercomputer. For people who she likes or hates, when she needs to achieve important info or wants to bomb someone, she can finish her jobs silently and effectively. (Whether they are Hachiman or Sagami or Ha****) In LN, do you still remember Hayato’s quote about or not?

For the things she hates, she’d go the extra mile to crush them.

This is one of Haruno’s policy. In part 1, she is the commander and her duty right now is planning suitable operation. The unclear questions are the “purpose” and “how?”. So she still do nothing but blends to the background.

Conclusion of Part 2

After Orimoto comments it’s impossible Hachiman will be Haruno’s boyfriend, I assume Haruno is not pleased with Orimoto’s opinion. So she tries to act and say with Hachiman like “they can be the couple” and “they are closer more than Orimoto” (friend in middle school who said something rude to them.) The evidence is how she acts. (snuggle up and looks at him from below.)

  • or she wants to tease him too
  • or (with her mask) this is the way she can say something she wants to be with him the most
  • or all of them.

That’s why Haruno tries to show Orimoto like that (indirectly and secretly). In manga -Monologue- v7, I notice Haruno’s eyes when she looks at Hachiman is not just want to tease.

Haruno pretends to think about  relationship of her and Hachiman. She said four choices and after looked at him, she announces the only answer that pleases her the most! I can see she teases him again (never miss even small chance, doesn’t she?).

When Haruno makes a pouty, sulky face to Hachiman after he blows her unbelievable choice away, I feel she scores a lot of cute Haru points from him. In LN only, you can see he wants to poke her cheeks as punishment because her response is too cute. However, like he thinks, he can’t do something like that to Haruno (older than him).

Haruno’s teasing to Hachiman is successful because even Orimoto mentions their relationship is nice. 

I feel Haruno doesn’t like Orimoto because she looks down on him, so she wants tofight back Orimoto’s underestimate. But we know again, Haruno is the genius who likes to hide her true intention so she acts like this and no one know her intention.

ps. But even Haruno doesn’t know how Hachiman feel after she acts like that either (Haru points because her pouty sulky expression is too cute~).

This is just my assumption. But somehow, Haruno wants to say her and Hachiman’s relationship is just not ONLY seniority relationship? Yes or no, her speech was flow away by girl talk so no one notice this… But I will not let hersuspicious but valuable hint fades away so easily like that. So let me pin this up.

When Haruno wants to ask something important to her, she arranges her post (just like when she poses like the commander earlier when she asks Hachiman). And this time, she poses in a dignified manner. Both of her poses are her unique reactions before launches important topic she wants to know so much. Moreover, I notice her all important topics of hers are about Hachiman.

As Orimoto is Hachiman’s middle schooler & they was in the same class. For Haruno, Orimoto is like a valuable treasure box. If she wants to know about his past during middle school period, Orimoto is great primary source! So this time, she pretends to has girl talk with Orimoto and Nakasomething. It’s not because she wants to build connection with them, but she wants to copy ultra rare data of Hachiman from Orimoto.

Even Haruno who has wearing perfect mask, since although she is the one who asked Orimoto about his love stories, still can’t deal with the truth that Hachiman ever confessed his feeling to Orimoto. That’s why her mask drops to the floor like that. But she hurries and wear it immediately with speed of light, so she can pretend to be excited after know this unbelievable love story of Hachiman. I assume Haruno is used to be sociable, so she can maintain her expression and talks with two girls like there’s no any heavy damage in her heart.

From Notice #1 and #2 above, I assume Haruno wants to know Hachiman’s love stories in the past as the first priority.

So much that she will not let Orimoto and her friend go until she achieved it.
So much that other interesting stories are not important as much as love stories of Hachiman.

I can’t underestimate Haruno’s struggling and her brain function at all. However, with these notices, I will assume she is very fond of Hachiman so much and want to know everything about him, especially in his own love story. It’s not for the sake of her younger sister, but for her own self-satisfaction.

Even Haruno who has high intelligence and can figure people’s feeling out so easily, would never guess that the one who got attention from Hachiman is the girl in front of her. And this girl is the one who mentioned before that it’s no way she and him will be the couple! (Haruno figures it out that Orimoto would not even be his friend because this girl insulted him. So she doesn’t expect Orimoto will even be his first crush before as well.)

I compare Thunder Bolt earlier because while Haruno starts recovering from damage earlier, her brain starts absorbing the reality, the reality that with of all people around Hachiman, Orimoto, the girl in front of her who is confident that HachixHaru is impossible and insulted him many times, is his crush!! So that’s why she repeats Orimoto’s word again and looks at him because she needs his confirmation. I assume that somewhere in her mind, can’t accept this ridiculous information. Maybe she wants him to say it’s not true, Orimoto just brag or something like that. That’s why she wants his confirmation silently by looking at him. But his awkward response confirms Orimoto’s words. The thunder bolt spell descends to Haruno because Hachiman confirms Orimoto’s words.

I explained more how Haruno feels jealously after shock in countdown 10-0. And while she is burning inside, Orimoto pours oil to her by saying Hachiman’s confession doesn’t really matter to her. I assume Haruno would try to go extra mile to do something to this girl because just like what happened to Sagami and just like Hayama said, she will go extra mile to crush things she hates.

Next release

In the next part, how will Haruno’s fire doughnut operation be? In spite of the very low possibility.

What is the purpose of this operation?

How can she launch her secret operation?

Who will be her loyal subordinate?

Hachiman will be involved with her operation or not?

Let’s continue in the next part!

Are you hungry yet?

My analysis here mixed with my own assumptions/guess too. No way I can understand this supercomputer character completely. I’m not the wiseman.

That’s why your comment is what I need. Agree or disagree is fine.

    Hey you posted it! Had fun reading it. Those exaggerations made me funny inside(I’m sorry if you’re serious on explaining on that part, I just can’t stop laughing.) Anyways, Haruno is a deep character. I like her character for reasons unknown. I’m just drawn to her, she is like a Spider and I’m just a measly fly caught on her Web. Or you could say that Hachiman is the Fly and Haruno is the Spider. Also, I never ever read the Manga so, I never knew that certain expressions are added them. Such as aforementioned on your analysis that she pauses and frozes. If Watari is monitoring closely on the Manga/ working closely. That scene and that expression PLAYS a VITAL part on who she truly is. Haruno is so mysterious/deep and with that facade I’m really amazed how can Watari write such a complex character. And now for the ending, I would say something crappy: HaruXHachi please make it happen Watari! VN route or Spin-off doesn’t matter! I need that Onee-san! :3

      Those exaggerations are from my imagination but started from character’s reactions/expressions that I found. I like you enjoy my fantasy and realistic explanation. Hohohoho I tried to write fantasy mixed in my analysis so I can explain more and it will not make you bored too. (AZ, Thunderbolt, dark magic and chest monster)

      Your comment about her made me agree she would be spider but not poisonous. She always lets her target go after she achieved her purpose. IMO, she is like ninja or spy. :3

      If my memory serves me well, in manga, the page that Orimoto tells Hachiman’s love story to Haruno and nakasomething, is like Double page spread for me (just a certain speech from Orimoto). Maybe it’s just me again, but mangaka wanted to show everyone’s expressions fully and clearly.

        Orimoto and Hachiman’s expression are normal for me. However, a certain character’s expressions made me pause… completely.
        I look at 2 Haruno’s expressions in this double page carefully and I swear I never see her expressions be like that before.

      I agree with you she is complex character. A pro spy who wears camouflage. Agree more about WW’s writing skill. I don’t know Oregairu is the first work of him but he will be legend when LN ends for sure.

      spin-off? Good idea! I want this an VN too!

    Those exaggerations help to make the reader more drawn sublimely on to the post. :) Good job!

    Also, DOUBLE PAGE SPREAD? WHAT! That means something. Really! I’m not an avid manga reader so correct me if I’m wrong that Double Page Spread parts of manga are usually the vital thing or important scene on a released chapter right?

    Also as far as I’ve heard, there is a new VN on the works. We could only hope that it would be made and there are more routes. Also I hope a English Version of the first VN would be released. *sigh Anyways Looking forward to Part 3 of the fire doughnut!

    I admit, i am really enjoying this analysis . Honestly, finding Hachiman/Haruno stuff is become more and more difficulty.

    Best girl will never win. Just sad. Looking forward to part 3.

    Oh my god! I was grinning sadistically while reading this. Those notes you pointed out about a possible love interest for Haruno is making me all giddy inside. HachixHaru can happen!

    By the way, I’m the author of ‘Despite Everything’ in which you linked me to this amazing work. I’m looking forward to your future posts! Really!
