This part will explain what the operation Fire Doughnut of Yukinoshita Haruno (雪ノ下 陽乃) is. Why does she volunteer to call Hayama Hayato (葉山 隼人) and arrange him and those girls hang out together? What does she want from him? Does she just mess around? This Yahari analysis will provide the answer for you.
I updated the tragedy of Haruno, Hayato and Yukino because it’s the origin of Haruno’s hatred toward him. If you want to read this update, you can click Ctrl+F and find this paragraph,
What is Haruno aiming for this date group (If I set bar lower).
Before You Will Proceed.
This operation Fire Doughnut of Haruno was divided to parts. You would be confused about my conclusion above if you didn’t read part 1 & 2 before so please read them first (I did “Operation Fire Doughnut list” below of this post for you too.).
- Part 1
- The reason why Haruno is curious if any girls approached to him during the trip and asked him expertly so he will not know her intention.
- How Hikigaya Hachiman (比企谷 八幡) gains more “trust” from Haruno after his effort that made her sister, Yukino recover her self-confidence.
- Haruno’s hope and despair because the relationship between her and Yukino didn’t recover despite working in the committee helped Yukino recover her self-confidence for real. But what her sister did is sending the souvenir to their family via mail…
- Part 2
- Haruno’s desire behind her introduction.
- Her fiery feeling after heard Hachiman’s love story from Orimoto Kaori (折本 かおり), the birth of the monster in her stomach, and the cause of operation Fire Doughnut.
If you read 1 and 2 already, welcome to part 3!
- Please read Attention page first, to let you understand that my all analyses are not 100% correct.
- Spoiler up ahead. And I recommend you to read/watch Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. (やはり俺の青春ラブコメはまちがっている。), Oregairu (俺ガイル) LN/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)/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-) before proceeding.
In this part, after Haruno took heavy damage by ice magic, Absolute Zero from Orimoto, she decided that Orimoto is in her blacklist who should be blown away immediately. And if these girls want to meet another one who she hates, she just answers their expectation.
If he still loves her even if he was rejected?
Operation Fire Doughnut,
M@ster Donut, Chiba Perfecture, Tokyo,
Evening with the setting sun,
LN v8, Anime Zoku ep 3-4, Manga -Monologue- vol 7
Even Haruno is utterly mystified.
In previous part, I assumed Haruno right now would be jealous because of the truth she heard from Orimoto. I saw Haruno is jealous when she met Hachiman and Yuigahama Yui (由比ヶ浜 結衣) during the firework festival (anime ss1 ep 9) but she confirmed silently from their reactions that that is not a date. However, this time is different, her jealous feeling is another level compares to that time. So what should she do?
Hayama Hayato Is The Answer.
Orimoto asked Hachiman if he knows about Hayama-kun or not. She said her friend wants to meet him. However, Hachiman couldn’t do that so he refused. After that, he heard Haruno’s whisper who was blending into the background. She whispered that this might be interesting. He is confused and turns to her, her eyes lit up with a suspicious glow…
Haruno is blending to the background so she can listen to their conversation. After she heard that they want to meet Hayama, she started to plan something that will answer their expectation. But actually, she was calling Hayama to answer her expectation.
I assume that Haruno is planning to blow people she hates away for her own self-satisfaction and for her own peace of mind because I consider the body language (that is her eyes), her feeling toward Hachiman, and her feeling toward his love story and this girl for the consideration. If I need to explain shortly, she is planning to use Hayama to blow Orimoto away and use Orimoto and her friend to burn Hayama.
- Blow Orimoto away for self-satisfaction and peace of mind, blow her away from her and Hachiman.
- Blow Hayama away for her own self-satisfaction, blow him away to hurt his feeling. (??)
You might doubt if I am analyzing Haruno in Oregairu story. Does that perfect Yukinoshita Haruno do something for these reasons? This theory is unreasonable if I just say it without any clues. So I will explain about it later. For now, I guess she would feel pleased because Hayama will answer her expectations.
Agility & Defence are her advantages!
Haruno suddenly raises her hand and announces she will introduce Orimoto’s friend to Hayato. Hachiman and Orimoto are wondering what she is saying so suddenly.
Haruno takes out her cellphone so quickly and calls to Hayato. After 3 rings, she tells him to come now and says what she wants to say and hung up quickly. Hachiman asks her what she is doing but she just send him a big bright smile. After he saw her expression, he thinks she is enjoying too much.
I read comments in many sites about why Haruno went through the trouble to call Hayato and introduce Orimoto’s friend to him. Hachiman and some people comment that she just is having way too much fun and I too, thought the same. Yeah, why not? I was confused why she does this and I should agree with Hachiman’s comment, don’t I?
However, right now I don’t think she will do everything and so quickly just for fun. She heard Orimoto’s friend wants to see Hayato and Haruno knew he can solve her unease feeling (or should I say, wipe out her unease feeling). He is the good chance so that’s why she took out her cellphone and summoned him. She does this and that so quickly because the chance will vanish soon if she doesn’t hurry. (??)
When I wrote Haruno’s chance will vanish soon if she didn’t hurry. I have my own reasons. I guess that time is evening and Haruno would calculate what Hayato is doing right now and where he should be. Like Orimoto said, he is in the soccer club so daily training during after school is normal. Haruno would know his schedule too so she knows she needs to call him as fast as possible, or else he would go back home and her chance will disappear like that if she doesn’t summon him quickly. Her agility is so high so it’s not problem~
After Haruno’s agility works well, next is her defense. After she called Hayama, she knows everyone around her are confused what she is doing, and one of them is Hachiman. I can see he doesn’t understand why she needs to call Hayama. So in order to hide her objective, her cheerful mask was activated again or should I say, Anti-spyware software! with her bright mask, it can hide her true intention, just like anti-spyware deletes all spywares in one click. I can’t underestimate her defense at all.
The one and only secret agent of Haruno
After Haruno called Hayama, she and everyone are waiting for him. Later, she hears somebody is climbing up the stairs in the store. She twists her body and looks at the direction of stairs.He comes for real!
At this point, it seems Haruno knows well that he will rush to this cafe because…
- she didn’t explain why she needs him to come.
- and her tones didn’t show that this is emergency either.
Haruno can summon Hayama to come to doughnut cafe although he would be tired from club activities. It’s like he is another ultra rare card. At least I can tell you that Haruno didn’t call him to has
some fun or wants to mess up but he will be the her secret agent who will complete the mission for her.
And he will be the sacrifice for her own self-satisfaction at the same time.
To tell you the truth, I’m the one who surprised about Hayama more than Haruno. I mean, he hurried to doughnut shop as Haruno’s command although she didn’t tell any specific detail and he would be tired from his club activities. If I am Hayama, I might not go to that place or if I need to go because the one who calls me is like my Onee-san, I would not hurry like he did. So that’s why I suspect that it is because his “Y” is… and wrote an analysis about it.
And in the future, I might write long analysis about Hayama in his point of view during this doughnut shop event too.
To sum it up, I feel that Haruno knows that Hayama will come to the cafe so it means that she would understand him well that he will not refuse her request. This issue is interesting.
How Hayama Falls Into HAruno’s Trap.
Haruno spreads her hands to Orimoto and her friend and tells Hayama that they want to be introduced to him. After that, they begin to chat together (except Hachiman). Orimoto and Nakasomething suggest to go have some fun somewhere. Haruno crosses her arms and supports their ideas in a serious manner. She says they all should go have fun. After Orimoto and her friend heard Haruno supported them, they are more excited and discusses suitable places for them to have some fun.
We can see that Haruno supports this idea seriously. If you read my assumption earlier, you will know she doesn’t intend to support their idea for their sake. I can say she lures Hayama to blow Orimoto away via this “have fun together”. So I suspect Haruno knows from the beginning that those girls will have idea to have fun together with this popular guy, Hayama. So if she calls him to come as Nakasomething’s expectation, Haruno is sure he has no choice but go with them.
Note: When Haruno said they all should go have fun. Hachiman is worried a little he should not go together with them. But he should not worried because Haruno has no any intention to include him to this group from the beginning. She wants Hayato, Nakasomething and Orimoto to have fun somewhere… (or should I say, she wants to blow Orimoto away from her and Hachiman by sacrificing Hayama).
However, You will know more why Hachiman ends up to be the part of double date in part 4. I can say for now it’s not her intention to include him. It’s Hayama who wants him to go double date with him. And Hayama lur- umm makes Haruno to forc- umm convince Hachiman to that date. But this is not BL definitely.
Dispel darkness away.
And then, it’s time to leave. Orimoto an Nakasomething say goodbye and leave from the shop. So this is how Haruno uses Hayama to blow Orimoto away from her and a boy who confessed to her. And her operation is 80% successful. The remainder in this operation that I need to explain is how she use Orimoto and Nakamachi to blow him away that it began already since he arrived this cafe and went along with these three girls.
However, we need to remember that Hayama would know that she used him to hang out with those girls so he is upset. After two girls disappeared completely,.. Haruno was glared… by Hayato, he asks her why she did something like that. She answers with smiled without a hint of shyness that It looked like it’d be fun. This reaction is how to defend herself from his understandable moodiness. After he saw her reaction, he “sighs” that is the sign that he gives up to make her explain. I think it is difficult for him (and most people) to deal with someone who knows how to dispel resentment of others, especially Hayama who comes to her side as soon as she called him.
And please don’t believe in Haruno’s words. When she says it look like it’d be fun, it means no any normal fun in her head. She just bring Hayama to be the sacrifice in order to blow Orimoto away.
Nameless and Hiding The Truth From Hachiman.
Hayama asks Haruno again why Hachiman is here. She tells him “the girl one with the perm” was someone Hachiman liked a long time ago. She wonders how her sister will feel if she knows about this. Moreover, she asks this question to Hachiman instead and sends him a smile.
Just a few speeches of her made me notice three interesting notices. So I highlighted three suspicious texts above. Let’s see why…
The first thing I want you to notice. Haruno is the same as Hayama who shows her unfriendly attitude via calling names. There are characters who she “changes” or avoid to call their names.
You can see when Haruno calls Yui’s name, she changed Yui’s name as “Gahama-chan”. She can call other people’s name correctly. (such as Komachi, Hiratsuka-sensei, Hachiman, Meguri and Iroha). But in the case of Yuigahama, she just cut “Yui” from her surname. I don’t know I’m right or not, but this is Haruno’s way to deny a girl who named “Yui”. She doesn’t even want to call this girl’s name.
This might be oot but not quite. I don’t know if Yuigahama knows about this or not, but I think she is a smart girl and has good sense when it comes to people in the society. Therefore, I can see her feels unease a bit when Haruno is near her. Maybe it is because she can sense that Yukinon’s older sister is not people she wants to approach since this big sis approaches her crush clearly.
But Yuigahama’s social skill is high so she still talks with her although her feeling toward Haruno is another thing. The same kind of people usually understand each other so I think Haruno is the same, talks with her friendly although her feeling toward this girl is another. That’s why I need to explain why Haruno cuts Yuigahama’s name.
The reason she intended to change Yuigahama’s name, I guess because when she saw Yuigahama for the first time (LN v4, anime ss1 ep 8, manga monologue v4), I will not say about this much but she suspects Yuigahama might has feeling toward Hachiman (or should I say, she might be her l*** rival. And in v5, Haruno’s feeling toward Yuigahama is the same.
For Sagami Minami (相模 南)‘s case, Haruno’s unfriendly attitude is in upper level. She avoided to call her correct name and is sarcastic to Sagami as well. (Somethinggami-chan, Amagami and Chairwoman-chan)
For Orimoto’s case, it’s the different level more than Yui’s and Sagami’s cases. Haruno had no intention to call her name at all. When she said the girl one with the perm” was someone Hachiman liked a long time ago. She should say “Orimoto” too but she never did that and she never call her name once. Maybe this is just my imagination but when I saw Yui and Sagami’s cases, I don’t think she didn’t call Orimoto’s name because she has no any chance to call her name. If you already read my operation fire doughnut analysis part 2, you would realize why Haruno refuses to call Orimoto’s name.
Hiding The Truth From Hachiman.
I think Haruno would hide her intention like usual but she doesn’t mind if Hayama will know it. If you continue to read this post, I will explain why she doesn’t mind. But in the case of Hachiman, it is different. I guess Haruno doesn’t want Hachiman to know her true intention. To explain why she tries to hide it from him, I think he is one of main factors that made her do all of these, …because Orimoto told her that he confessed his feeling to her that is what Haruno feels … like that and can’t accept this until she decided to match this girl to go with the one she hates. And it is hard to believe this but I am meaning Haruno.
For hiding the truth from him, she uses the word she uses regularly, “Yukino” to hide her intention and to bend Hachiman’s attention to her little sister instead like this. ⇓
“That’s not true! That girl, ah, the one with the perm I mean. That girl was someone Hikigaya-kun liked a long time ago apparently! Isn’t that really interesting? I wonder what kind of face Yukino-chan would make if she knew about this, hmmm… Right, Hikigaya-kun?”
This highlight speech is added for these reasons. If she just says without this speech, it is possible that he will suspect her that is what she wants to avoid. Yes, Haruno wants to hide the truth from him. Is it impossible for humans to reveal their desires that they know well that those desire are unpleasant in people’ eyes?
Other examples that show Haruno uses this word, Yukino to hide her true intention appear in LN v4 & 8. In LN v8, you would read how she uses this word in Operation Fire Doughnut Part 1.
Oregairu Analysis – “Before” Haruno Decides to Help Yukino.
In LN v4, Haruno uses it again when she encounters a new character, Yuigahama. If you want to know why Haruno uses this trick again, feel free to read this post.
And maybe I overthink about it but asking Hachiman’s opinion will make Haruno stand in the advantage position because it is normal that he would try to avoid her question and that brimming smile. Avoid her = he will not try to find her intention.
Encourage soldier before proceeds to red zone.
Haruno stands and taps Hayato on the shoulders. She says…
“Well, anyway, why don’t you go hang out with them? It might actually turn out to be pretty fun and go well for you.”
Maybe you don’t know yet, but this is the important moment of Hayato and Haruno (surely Hachiman didn’t know about the true meaning of Haruno’s remark). The true meaning of this remark of Haruno is…
She rejected Hayato indirectly but surely.
You might believe me, and that is understandable. But his reaction tells me how he is feeling after she said like that. After she spoke, his shoulders drop. He tries to refuse but she takes his words lightly. Although I wrote earlier that she didn’t tell why she did this to Hayama, her remark this time tell him everything. I am sure that she knows he has feeling for her, but she invited him to group him and those girls sticky with date group.
Haruno suggests Hayato to go hang out with two girls, she think he might has fun with them too and she means one of girls might be his girlfriend as well. Maybe this is her goodwill but I don’t think she wishes him well. Haruno sent him to go hang out with two unknown girls.
If my two oregairu analysis about the person who Haruno gazes into and “Y” in Hayato’s heart is collect, she would know Hayato’s feeling for “Y” but doesn’t consider his feeling at all. She already has the one who she will look for and is not pleased if the one she hates, is the one who has feeling for her, so she matched Hayato with two girls so they can have fun together and leave her and the one she is fond of alone.
…Hayato, she will never forget your sacrifice. (Salute!)
Moreover, I think after Hayama listens to Haruno’s answer why she calls him and supports those girls, he is smart enough to know why she did this. I assume that when she tells him that…
“the girl one with the perm” was someone Hachiman liked a long time ago.”
Hayama feels depressed after heard Haruno’s answer, because he finally know why she lures him to this doughnut cafe. I hope I have free time to write analysis about this (in his point of view). He knows immediately that she will use him as the sacrifice to blow Orimoto (the girl who has connection with Hachiman (the one Haruno is fond of.)) away. If you read my Oregairu analysis – And then, Yukinoshita Haruno Launched Operation Fire Doughnut (Part 2), you would know her feeling toward Orimoto. So eliminating a boy who she hates by using the girl who she hates, will make her satisfy.
I can feel that Haruno doesn’t care about Hayato (look from her reaction when they saw each other again in the School Cultural Festival in LN v6). And this time too, she doesn’t listen to him when he is trying to say it’s no way, I notice she has no any intention to consider his feeling at all. And when I look at her plan to set up this date, I assume that she would plan this from Hayato and Yukino’s direct experience. Why do I think like this? I have two assumptions for you to consider. I know one of them will be right, and I feel one of my assumption is too realistic, but when I the author reveal everything, I hope he will reveal her intention to group Hayato and two girls to have fun although she knows his feeling toward her.
What is Haruno aiming for this date group (If I set bar so high).
If I set the bar so high, I will think that Haruno expects Hayato to see the calamity in the future, after she rejected him here. And she expects Orimoto to get more problem soon.
Haruno plans to burn Hayato and those girls (especially him and Orimoto) by set this trap in the double date. And do you still remember Yukino got bullied by other elementary girls and she ended up hate Hayato. She and him would not be couple (elementary) but it is not surprising if they are close friends, and other girls can’t stand that scene (those two are too close) so Yukino is their targets.
I don’t know what really happened back then, but the result is Yukino hates Hayato and went to study abroad. Haruno, who cares for her sister, can’t accept this. And I am sure she would know what happened in this tragedy from Yukino or Hayato (I bet Hayato because Yukino would not tell her, and if Hayato can’t refuse Onee-san’s command, he would tell). So when I see her hatred (look from this scene in LN v8), I can feel she hates Hayato so much, from the bottom of her heart. And I think she has her own reason to hate someone. Because why does she hate him if he doesn’t do anything wrong, does she? So when I look from her operation to burn him and those girls with the date, I think she wishes him to fall hell because of “girls and the gang”, the similar tragedy that ever happened to her sister.
If Hayato goes to date with other girls, other students in Zobu will see them (such as Miura, Ebina, Tobe and Isshiki). He and those girls will get trouble if this will cause the rumor in their school. Not only Zobu but Orimoto’s school too (I forgot its name).
What might happen to Orimoto and Nakasomething.
- Other girls and the gang who are super jealous might set bulling game to Orimoto and Nakasomething.
- Or the “threesome” rumor will spread in both schools, I know Orimoto and co. just want to go have fun and have no any intention to be threesome. But from other people’s point of view, they can misunderstood and makes gossip worse. When people gossip about the rumor, the rumor can change into the worse rumor. They can’t ask those girls directly, but nothing will stop them from gossip. Threesome is not a topic that can say out loud proudly (especially, woman) because it’s disgusting in social. So if Orimoto and Nakasomething are the topic of this threesome, can you imagine they can endure this? Maybe they can, but ultra rare rumor like this is the full course for every students (and even teachers.). I doubt they can endure it.
- If 2) happens, Orimoto and Nakasomething will get more trouble because teacher will call them to ask what really happened. Although they might try to explain to teachers, how can they prove this?
- If 1) & 2) don’t happen, 3) might not happen either. But I am sure the normal rumor will make Orimoto and Nakasomething get trouble. It’s up to social’s mercy.
If this bullying game or the threesome rumor happens, “Haruno’s love rival” and the one who looks down on Hikigaya-kun, will be burn to ash.
What might happen to Hayato.
Since Hayato went to have fun with two girls, “the threesome rumor” might happen in Zobu (I’m not sure the rumor will be bad like this or not, but he can’t avoid the rumor since some people saw them are so close together.). But since he is the most popular guy, some people might be surprised but amazing in what he did. However, this ultra rare rumor will spread quickly. It will not be surprised if every students and teachers will be interested. That perfect boy plays threesome with other girls. It’s up to social who will design the rumor to be normal or worse.
If the rumor happens, the peaceful life of Hayato will end. His AT-field (Miura) would not stand this (since she and Ebina saw them) and his clique will be separate for sure.
So what’s next is when he is not covered by AT-field, almost every girls will think they too, can have the chance to be close to him (just like when some girls tries to confess love to him although he can Yukino become the rumor.). Some girls might think he and those girls might be not not threesome and the good news that Orimoto and Nakasomething are students from other school, so they should have better chance to win his heart. The Hayato war begins!! I don’t know threesome rumor will happen for real or not, but the rumor will happen for sure. So almost every girls will participate in this war to win this handsome boy’s heart. And he can’t expect AT-field from Miura. Everyday in school can be nightmare for him.
That’s not enough. If Tobe, Yamato and Ooka were not considered by girls because they want Hayato only, do you think what will happen next. Those trio will feel jealous/inferior and abandon him in the end (similar what Haruno told Hachiman and Yui about Yukino’s friend abandoned her).
He will be “the popular loner” for real, and that position is what he is scared the most. He tries to be nice so everyone will not harm him but with Haruno’s operation, that tragedy would be possible.
This is the origin of Haruno’s ultimate
noble pha magic, Fire Tornado. (since her name means the sun, maybe she has fire element.)
Operation Fire Doughnut completed.
And please don’t forget if Hayato, Orimoto and Nakasomething are burnt into ash, who will gain this? Haruno launches this operation so they will be disappear from her and Hachiman’s sight.
- Hayato (the one who she hates from the bottom of her heart & the love rival to Hachiman)
- Orimoto (Haruno’s love rival who looked down on him and their relationship)
- Nakasomething (is not her direct target but ever looked down on Hachiman too)
Can you imagine who will be remained in this operation?
It seems Haruno uses the disaster that happened to Yukino to set big trap to Hayato and co. If my assumption is not wrong, I feel she can’t forgive him because of that bullying, so when after she heard Orimoto’s friend want to meet him, she grasps this gold chance immediately (you can say she is waiting for this for long time). And one of reasons to set this trap is to revenge for her sister by setting the similar scene that he is scared the most. I don’t know how he did something wrong to make Haruno hates him so much like this, but I read LN v10 and she says she, Yukino and him are close and went have fun together. And when Yukino and Hayato are grown enough to go to the Ferris wheel, I think they should be elementary kids (not kindergarten, as if Haruno (elementary kid) can take care two kindergarten kids.).
So I can assume more that their happy time ended in elementary period too. And the only incident that was told in LN, is this bullying only, so it would not be wrong if I will use bullying incident as reference. Because there are no any clue in LN tells me that they are still close in middle school either. So it means the close relationship between her, Yukino and Hayato end before middle school period (Maybe that’s why he focuses on soccer, because he will…).
…Ah! Sorry if it’s out of topic, but I expand this assumption too much. So let’s return to the topic. I want to say Haruno’s hatred to Hayato would because of Yukino’s bullying. She is throwing her own hatred to him, who would do something wrong in some way.
What is Haruno aiming for this date group (If I set bar lower). (Update again!)
Above is the worst circumstance Hayato will face in the future if he goes to the group date with those girls. But it’s still too realistic to happen at the same time, because if you already read LN v8 or anime Zoku ep 4, manga -Monologue- v8, whatever that she was aiming, didn’t come true already because Hayato used this date for his own objectives. So her intention for this date group is still mysterious. However, if I rethink that
- One thing I am sure about her objectives, I notice she used this chance to throw Orimoto (the one Hachiman (who Haruno is looking for) ever confessed) to Hayato for her self-satisfaction. Imagine when she matched “two people who she hates [Hayato & Orimoto]” and drove them somewhere far away.
- If her hatred to burn Hayato is not the calamity like I mentioned above, but just let him know her hatred toward him?
- Or/and if she didn’t expect Orimoto to get more trouble because of the rumor I mentioned earlier, but for something that is easy to understand for Hayato and Haruno?
I will say that her hatred toward him because of the certain incident that her sister suffered because he didn’t help her, during late elementary school period is something that I must consider why Haruno hates him so much. Because it’s no way she will hate him without any reason, hate him because she just want to hate him is not something I will agree.
If she who took care of him since childhood and she seems like him as Onee-chan and little brother, but changed her mind and hates him instead, there is must be a incident that made her can’t like him anymore, and that incident must happened in their past. And the incident that Haruno, Hayato and Yukino ever said, is the only one (I think you know what that incident is). Maybe he was the main cause of that incident and Haruno can’t forgive him (and even herself – in case Yukino asked her for help too) because he had run away from the situation by do nothing for her sister.
But that is just the case of Hayato was the only one who Yukino asked him for help. But if I consider it’s possible that Yukino might ask her older sister too (who was another close one and she always depended on her), and if Haruno who always answered Yukino’s expectations, couldn’t help her from the situation, do you think their relationship will be crumbled or not? When we watched their present relationship, I think, yes, their relationship is not close like in the past. So the next question is…
If their relationship was ruined because no one could save her little sister, and the one who could do that the most, ran away, how does Haruno feel toward herself and him?
Actually, I got a new clue from her words in a certain ∨n, that clue is not clear and I have no any solid evidence to confirm that clue is reliable or not. But because it’s not clear because it’s random hint and because WW’s style makes me trust unclear clues. Anything that is so clear, is not reliable clue in Oregairu. And that clue from Haruno is…
You can’t forgive yourself and others to run away.
(I can’t remember every words and which ch, sorry.)
If I use this clue to analyze their tragedy, I assume that Haruno was another one who got involved with the incident too… Although I can’t confirm yet that “the incident” is bullying in the school or problem within family, but if WW tries his maximum super supreme gigantic best to hide the bullying in the school until now, I will bet that the incident is not about problem within family (although it’s important issue that made Yukino depended on her big sister too much – over dependency). So my assumption is like this.
Yukino asked her big sister for help too. But she couldn’t answer her expectations, so their sibling relationship was shattered.
That is the reason her little sister studied abroad and always activates mental barrier.
That is the reason Haruno is always alone and scared when her little sister asks her for help again during the festival that caused her to “activate cold aura” to prevent Yukino from “asking help from her”.
And that is the reason Hayato was hated by Yukinoshita siblings despite he loves the older sister…
The result Haruno wants.
So to this point, Haruno who hates Orimoto because she was the one who Hachiman confessed his feeling, heard from her that her friends wants to meet Hayato, the one who she hates the most, the hatred feeling in her mind because of what Orimoto said proudly previously (you would know what I mean) drives her to call him to come as Orimoto’s friend wishes. And she just stick them together
so they can “have fun”, so they will get away from her and Hachiman. Prepare the yacht for them and say goodbye to them to be happy together.
When Hayato asked her why she did this, she answered indirectly because she used word trap “Yukino-chan” to block Hachiman to understand and to acts happily to Hayama so he will not be angry to her, but her answer still contains the hint that made him feels gloomy (because Orimoto is the one who Hachiman ever confessed to, so she decided to stick that girl with Hayato so they will go away from her and Hachiman). Her doing to get rid of her love rival is understandable and will make her satisfy. I assume that she did this to revenge for her sister at the same time, because what he did during that incident is not what she can forgive him to just watch her sister suffer and didn’t do anything to save her, she took care of him and no wonder that she thought he will be good friend of Yukino, but her expectation was destroyed when the crisis happened.
What will happen to Orimoto?
If I set the bar lower, I think Haruno wants to get rid of her love rival to make her satisfied only. So whatever that might happen to Orimoto if she and her friends have fun with Hayato, is not what Haruno will calculate anymore.
What will happen to Hayato?
If I set the bar lower, I explained how he is feeling after she rejected him there already. So I will let you imagine how he is feeling if the person he has feeling for, rejected him and doesn’t care who he “will have fun” with. Of course the nightmare he will meet in the future if he will go with those girls is still possible since he is the popular guy who never has fun with other girls before. But I don’t know Haruno is expecting him to have more problem after he needs to have fun or not, but it’s possible that she just wants to get rid of him along with girl she hates only.
ps. If you didn’t read LN v8 yet, it’s no way you can see the scene when Haruno rejects Hayato. The scene in manga -Monolouge- was cut but some scene is still remained. In anime Zoku ep3, there’re no the scenes about this.
The one who she is fond of?
Haruno watches her silver wrist watch and announces it’s time to leave. She collects her belongings as she says with high speed. She shuffles over to Hachiman and whispers, thank you for hanging out with her, in his ear secretly.
He can’t stand because his ears are sensitive so he takes 2-3 steps back from her, at that moment, she dashes to the stairs quickly. She turns her head and waves her hands to his direction.
…It seems the way Haruno reacts to Hachiman and Hayato are totally different. You can see clearly how different when she treats Hachiman, compare with how she treats Hayama. With this operation, she throws Hayama away along with Orimoto, while she keeps Hachiman for herself (look two images above for see my assumption clearly.).
But this is not the first time Haruno showed how different she treats between Hachiman and Hayama. If you ask me about the first time she showed her feeling toward these boys, that time is the School Cultural Festival period. That scene didn’t show in anime and manga -Monologue- so if you see those mediums only, you will not find this interesting scene of these three characters. If you want to see this scene, you can explore in LN v6, but if you already read but still don’t get it, I recommend this Oregairu Analysis – “After” Yukinoshita Haruno Decides to Help Yukino. (The First Part). I hear thunder near the planning committee room.
When she stands up to leave from the shop, I suspect she looks at Hachiman because he is her accomplishment. Why do I think like this? Because with my analysis from part 1-until now, I can say she launched her operation in order to eliminate Orimoto (her rival) and Hayama (who loves her but she hates from the bottom of her heart) away so no one can interfere her and Hachiman, so she can drive Hayama from her, and this is her hidden message to Hayama that she rejects him by using other girls to take him away. I admit it’s totally coincidence that Nakasomething wants to meet Hayama. Haruno wants to blow Orimoto away, but when Nakasomething wants to meet Hayama, she can plan complex operation to send both of them away to the faraway island.
Haruno sacrifices Hayama because he has feeling for her but she doesn’t care after all. Moreover, I suspect her hatred toward Hayama, has some connection with what happened to Yukino in the past, so she hates him to let her sister feels despair that time and study abroad in order to run away from her and that bad environment. So this time, Haruno summons him and to blow her l*** rival along with him away.
Don’t worry, Hachiman. Haruno doesn’t mean you when she asks to let her know any progress. He thought she asks info from him but don’t forget there’s another person who is near him too.
Her goodbye tells how much hatred she has toward him.
Haruno says to Hachiman’s direction if there is any progress, let her know too. Hachiman thinks she was talking to him but he doesn’t think he will go with them. However, he still nod to Haruno as she leaves.
When she says this, I suspect she doesn’t say to Hachiman but since she doesn’t call Hachimna or Hayato’s name, it makes Hachiman misunderstands she says to him. So I assume that she says this to Hayato.
I assume that Haruno understands the being of Hayato very well. So she knows he is the nice guy who can’t refuse people’s expectations. It means he is indecisive and scared to oppose other people’s idea. That’s why although she doesn’t follow the progress of her own operation, she would know he will end up go have fun with those girls anyway.
And I suspect Haruno is so sarcastic to Hayato until the last minute. Don’t forget she stabs him the two despairs ( 1) when he knows she sets trap. 2) when she gives him sarcastic encouragement.), or should I say “Fire Dagger” since she would has fire element. This time, she doesn’t forget to stab the last Fire Dagger to him by says goodbye like that. Because I think she is so smart enough to know nothing will happen to him, but she just says this to be sarcastic to him in the last minute. OK. I got it. I got how much her hatred toward him.
ps. And still, Hachiman doesn’t know Hayato got stab three times by Haruno’s fire daggers.
So what’s on Hayato’s mind?
If you read to this point, you might be curious my assumptions is for real. I can understand if you wonder, so I wrote the truths behind Hayama Hayato’s sacrifice for Hachiman (part 1). In this part 1 will start when Hayato receive call from Haruno to come to the doughnut cafe. You can find out his thoughts & feelings when he got this call until he tells Hachiman about her after she leaved the cafe. I hope this two analysis might help you reach the truth. Or if you are not sure about this, I recommend you to read Oregairu LN v8.
Conclusion of Part 3
The purposes of operation fire doughnut
The purposes are based on Haruno’s desire. Moreover, quote from Hayato after Haruno left from doughnut shop can give us some valuable hints. He said…
“If she doesn’t have any interest in something, she wouldn’t act so cheeky like that… She wouldn’t do anything. She’ll meddle so much with what she likes to the point of killing it. For the things she hates, she’d go the extra mile to crush them.”
Hayama’s quote confirms my assumption about how different when Haruno treats Hachiman and Hayama. And these list will explain more about her purpose for secret operation.
- As Nakasomething wishes, Haruno who got damage from Orimoto who said proudly that Hachiman ever confessed to her before, she called Hayato so she can stick him and those girls together.
- When Hayato is so upset and asks why she did this, her answer was encoded, but he feels gloomy after he understood her intention that was hidden in her answer.
- About the reasons why Haruno volunteered to call Hayato and supported them to have fun, I have two assumptions for you to read (until the author will reveal the answer). But all assumptions I can think, she did this because her hatred feeling toward him and Orimoto.
- For Hayato, to reject his feeling, to get rid of him and revenge for her sister.
- For Orimoto, to use her to get rid of Hayato, get rid of her from Hachiman and herself.
- And about the calamity that might happen to Hayato and those girls I mentioned, it’s still unrealistic since I set the bar too high, since I think the hatred of Haruno toward Hayato is like Fire Tornado that was accumulated many years. And the reason that Hayato might get trouble if he (the most popular guy) will have fun with other girls although he never did that with any girls in Sobu before.
- When I assume that she hates him, you can see how she treats him before she leaves.
- When Haruno tells him that it might actually turn out to be pretty fun and go well for him, she is just sarcastic to him and reject his feeling at the same time. She knows well that he has feeling for her (if you want to know why I think Haruno thinks Hayama has feeling for her, please read “Y” of Hayama for more info), but if she says she hopes he might go well if he has fun with other girls, can you imagine how Hayama feels? Haruno shoots him down before she leaves.
- After this incident, the remained problem is she doesn’t know Hachiman still has feelings for Orimoto or not. So she will find another chance to investigate this when they are alone again (and for serve your desire, in case you want to know, I wrote part 4 already. There Haruno tries to find out Hachiman still has feelings for his former crush or not.).
- In case Haruno is expecting the calamity. It means her operation Fire Doughnut still continue.
- We know Hayama is the most popular guy in Zobu. If he goes to has fun with other girls in this town, some students will see them (just like when Yumiko, Ebina, Tobe and Iroha saw him). The rumor about him and other girls will happen after that. Many people (include Yumiko and his clique) will want to know the truth. He will get trouble from this incident.
- When Haruno knows what will happen to a girl who is too close to Hayama in the past (I mean Yukino). So she plans Orimoto to has fun with Hayama so other student(s) in Zobu will see them together. I assume Haruno plans they will get big trouble from other girls (in both schools). The gossip about love with popular guy can reach Orimoto’s school. Moreover, Orimoto mentioned Hayama is famous even in her school, so this is possible. If the rumor reaches to her school, she and Nakasomething will be
burnedbullied from almostevery girls in their school. – Bad Ending.
I think Nakasomething is not direct target of Haruno. But I think she observes when they talk with Hachiman earlier, so she knows Nakasomething ever hold back her laughter after Orimoto mentioned it’s impossible that Haruno will be Hachiman’s girlfriend. So she is indirect/the third target.
In case of Hayato, Haruno plans to let him see the same tragedy that he is scared so much. If her plan is successful, all friends of Hayato will abandon him and he will be “the popular loner” that every girls will attack him.
So it means Haruno intends to burn them with her ultimate magic, fire tornado all at once.
- In case Haruno didn’t plan the calamity. It means her operation Fire Doughnut has ended already.
It means that she just rid of him and Orimoto away from her and Hachiman. To satisfy and to revenge. If she didn’t expect Hayato to meet the worst circumstance, it means that her operation is successful already because if she just expect him to suffer from her rejection, if she looked at his expression, she would know that she succeeded in sending hidden message to him. And to use her love rival to send this message is successful, no any obstacle if you ask me.
- When Haruno says if there’s any progress, let her know too, she doesn’t say this to Hachiman but he misunderstands she says this to him. She says this to Hayato because she is so smart enough to know what will happen if he goes have fun with those girls. She knows him very well that he is the nice guy who can’t refuse everyone’s expectations. So he can’t refuse this date for sure. That’s why her goodbye is sarcastic words for him. I suspect she doesn’t miss any small opportunity to stab him with despair knife until the last minute. Her action this time tells me how much her hatred toward him.
I’m not sure her operation still continue or it ended already, but the truth that Hayato must go have fun with those girls, still remains.
How can Haruno launch operation fire doughnut? In spite of the very low possibility.
With Watari-sensei’s support/miracle via Nakasomething’s request, so Haruno can has the chance. If Nakasomething didn’t want to meet Hayato, it’s no way Haruno can do anything.
Will Hachiman be involved with her operation or not?
- Nope. Haruno will not invite Hachiman to go hang out with them. If she wants him to go with this group, she would do something to pull him into this group in the first place. And as my [two assumptions] why Haruno did this, Hachiman might be relate to her motivation to do this, but she wants to crush Hayato’s mind and use Orimoto for that, and to get rid of them at the same time. So I don’t see why Hachiman becomes the victim of her hatred.
- Moreover, Haruno didn’t see why Hachiman needs to go with them. She would not want to see him hangs out together with Orimoto, right?
- But later, we will know Hachiman ends up in this double date too, right? I can say Haruno forces him to go with Hayama’s group because Hayama can make her feels curious. You should read part 4 for more info.
Who will be Haruno’s loyal subordinate who answered her expectation (or his own expectation)?
You know that already, don’t you?
The targets of this operation.
- Orimoto Kaori
- Hayama Hayato
The commander of operation Fire Doughnut
In the next part, it might be the last part or not, I don’t know. If I’m sure part 4 will be the last part, I will update this in “Short Updates and Attentions” in Front page.
Haruno is expecting the calamity in the future is still mysterious, but it appeared that she decides to call Hachiman and invites him to go to the date group too. Why did she change her mind and include him to that group? Who did change her mind? You will know all answers in the part 4.

Related Oregairu analysis you should not miss!
Maybe this is when Haruno started to be fond of Hachiman. Because she scanned him to the core and thinks he is interesting boy.
If you already read all parts in Operation fire doughnut, you should not miss this analysis. Who will know that relationship of Haruno and those two boys, becomes love triangle relationship already? Don’t believe me before read this.
