After you read these two analysis already but didn’t touch part 1 of Hayama’s love plan yet, I recommend you to read it. Oregairu Analysis – “LOVE Plan ♥” of Hayama Hayato During The Cultural Festival? The Time to Reveal This Has Come! (The First Part)
The School Cultural Festival The daytime LN v6, anime ss1 ep12, manga -Monologue- v4-5
In previous part, you can see how Hayama activated “standby mode” and calculated that Haruno will be the quest or will participate in the Cultural Festival. To confirm his target, he needs to patrol the most possible place she should go. And he insisted to go with his
enemy love rival (Hachiman) who didn’t know anything about Hayama’s feeling. After he found the target (Haruno), it appeared that his target spotted one of her targets (Hachiman), but Hayama blocked her with understanding reason. After he confirmed about his target and her feeling, he left to conspire his love plan officially but secretly.
When he scouts at the planning committee again, he found the opportunity to get Haru scores from his target by helping her sister, Yukino. Volunteering to be the representative of the volunteer organization will be benefit for him to gain attention from Haruno and he can has reasonable excuse to coordinate with her group, but he helped the committee because he might feel guilty because he is the one who convinced Sagami to be the female representative of their class. Everything is running smoothly. Until the aura of the dark warrior overshadowed his kindness.
The dark warrior can’t stand the tyrant king and lazy citizens so he casts Meg@nte spell to them, but this spell is too powerful, it wiped the whole planning committee out in a single blow. Even Yukinoshita sisters took effect from this spell. But Hayama didn’t admire his love rival since he got high Haru scores and became her hero. Since Hayama didn’t know about Haruno’s suffering, he misinterpreted that she likes “how to” of his rival only, but actually, what made her pleased, is not his “how to” only.
If you want to know why I don’t think that Haruno likes “how to” of Hachiman only, you can explore at Oregairu Analysis – “When” Yukinoshita Haruno Decides to Help Yukino. She vent her feeling during the firework festival. The result he did, answered her wish.
And this Oregairu Analysis – “After” Yukinoshita Haruno Decides to Help Yukino. (The First Part) will help you know why she laughed so much until she cried when she realized what Hachiman tried to do, but if you want to know in full detail…
Oregairu Analysis – “After” Yukinoshita Haruno Decides to Help Yukino. (The Last Part)
While Hayama’s effort to get attention from Haruno was overshadowed by Hachiman’s Meg@nte , Haruno’s plan will be successful or not?
So after he misunderstood that his target likes “how to” of his rival only and the inferior complex hurts him again, but he still believe that his nice aura will make her interests in him. So what happened next in Hayama’s arc?
Hayama will never give up.
Skip to when Yukino is finding Sagami because the ending ceremony will start soon.
So before Hayama and co. will play band perform, he volunteers to help Yukino and co. by giving them more time. He and co. will play one more song and he uses many social apps and mail to find her. But when Yukino gives him the gratitude, he says he…
“Don’t worry about it. I want to show off a bit today too. Anyways… we’re going to be on stage now, but at most, we can only get you ten minutes. You’ll need to find her by then.”
I am not sure what he means, [want to show off a bit today], but if he is going to do this for the sake of himself, I will guess he knows Haruno would watch the performances from somewhere, so he will not miss the chance to do his best, so she will watch him. I don’t know he is doing this for this purpose or not, but if it’s true, he even convinces Yumiko, who has feeling for him, to help him show off so Haruno will see him?
ps. I don’t know this is coincidental, but in manga @Comic, there’s one page that showed Haruno is playing guitar while Hiratsuka-sensei is playing bass (I guess). So I guess it’s light music or something. And in Hayama’s band, he used guitar too. What I notice is, Hayama played the same musical instrument as her, and it’s possible that he wants to show Haruno to look at him while he and co. are playing the same/similar musical performance like when she ever played in the Cultural Festival. However, it’s possible that all of these are coincidental, but if you ask me, I can’t call this is coincidence since there are many things that are the same/similar between Haruno’s musical performance in the past and Hayama’s musical performance.
Anyway, I feel sorry for Hayama since Yukino calls her sister to come to her, so she can’t watch his perform no matter she wants to watch for real or not. Actually, if you see the timeline of Hayama and Haruno, it’s impossible for her to watch his perform, since she accepts Yukino’s request, so although she can’t test or practice the drum kit since this instrument should be at the stage right now, she would spend time with her little sister and co. before it’s their turn to play.
Then, when does Hayama know Haruno is with her sister right now, and will help Yukino buy more time?
- In anime ss1 ep 12, he might know that Yukino called her older sister after he used social apps to find Sagami before his band will go to play song. But it’s possible that he knew that Haruno accepted Yukino’s request and will play music with her after he and co. played song too.
- In LN v6, it’s high possible that he knew that Haruno came to help her sister after his band finished their work, since while Hachiman and Yukino are discussing about buying more time, I don’t know where Hayama is in that time, but it’s reasonable that he would be with his friends because his friends are standby before it’s their turn near the stage. Because he doesn’t need to talk with Yukino anymore, stays with his band is more reasonable.
However, about his effort to buy more time so Yukino and co. will have more time to find Sagami might reach Haruno’s ear too. But I think he might feel sad because she didn’t watch his perform, but at least if she heard that he tried to help her little sister and co., if she remember about his effort, it would be worthwhile more or less. However, Haruno will consider about this effort or not, is still mysterious, since we never find this in any mediums.
Again Hayama plans fails.
Hayama’s effort to buy more times to search for Sagami, but he wants to show off at the band perform , is fail since Haruno has no time to watch. So his effort might reach her ear, but it might not effective enough. I ever wrote about when Hayama knew that Haruno is with her sister and accepted her request to buy more time, but I will use LN as the main reference. So I will assume that he knows about this after his perform ended.
So if I look via his point of view, he would know that she didn’t watch his perform since she and co. would be busy discussing about the musical performance they will play soon. So his plan to show off so Haruno will see him participate the same performance she ever did in the past, is fail. And although he used social apps and volunteered to buy more time to find Sagami might reach her ears, it would not enough since everyone is trying their best to find Sagami. So his effort is good but not effective enough to gain attention from Haruno.
However, this time, if Hayama knew that Haruno is the one who is helping Yukino to find Sagami, how is he feeling when he know this news?
Discover the most wanted
criminal and bring Chairwoman-chan back, should be “the best achievement” enough to make Haruno, who is going to try her best, turns to look at him or not if he can bring the chairwoman back?
After she and co. finished their performance and realizes that he is the one who answered everyone’s expectation by bringing Sagami back so her effort will not be in vain?
This would be the last time and the biggest opportunity
for him to make his wish come true, so…
I saw his effort searching for Sagami and tried his best to convince her to do her job. At first,
I ever admired his perseverance because I didn’t see his true intention and thought he is the nice people who will offered his help for other people, although he tried too hard, I never think he has a hidden intention. But this time, if you read my assumptions about his thoughts and feelings, you might know what I will write. I will re-think why he tried his best, and why he was so upset Hachiman so much, to the point I can see his hatred.
I still think he tried his best to find Sagami for real, although his band perform has ended just now, I ever thought his doing was admirable, but if he has the same hidden intention? If he has that intention, I finally can explain why he tried so much to find the person who everyone is wanting the most. It is like the hunting game. Anyone who can bring Sagami to do her job, will be praised by everyone, and the one who will know is the one he wants attention from her the most, I think you would know who I mean.
So to this point, what he needs to do is just convincing Sagami and bringing her back to everyone. If he succeeds, he expects that person will start looking at him. And don’t forget he brought Haruka and Yukko (Sagami’s friends) with him to help him convince her. Moreover, if he can bring her back, it’s not necessary for him to tell everyone about his succeed because her friends will take that role and share his effort so everyone will know, everyone will praise him and Sagami’s friends, and the news will reach to Haruno’s ears. He might waste time to tell Haruka and Yukko where Sagami should be, but the benefits to bring them are worth.
But it’s difficult than he thought, no matter he tried to talk with Sagami, she will not go back with him. Sagami wants people to look at her, sooth her. Maybe he might not know that she wants people to do that for her, but we can’t expect him to scold her so she will give up and go to do her job. I will say that he doesn’t know other methods to bring her back because he BELIEVE that if he is nice to her, used his usual skill, she will listen to him.
It’s the same when he wants Tsurumi Rumi (鶴見 留美) and her friends to be united again so her problem will be solved (in LN v4, anime ep7-8, manga -Monologue- v3). But he didn’t aware about the feeling of Rumi and her clique. And this time too, Sagami is listening to the encouragement of him and her friends. Actually, she wants more. I am not sure but I feel that he is anxious because Sagami will not move no matter how many times he and her friends (who he is using them to convince their friends) tell her to go back.
But he can’t give up just because she will not go back, in this Cultural Festival, this would be the last chance he will get attention from that person, the ending ceremony will start soon, so he will struggle but will not realize that “the bad ending” will come soon if he still is nice to her. The ending that is opposite with what he is expecting. However, he might not know that his method might be effective if this is not emergency, if the one he is talking is not Sagami (the one who demands the endless comfort from people). He tries to step forward slowly. However, while he is struggling with the same method, his love rival can’t wait for Hayama’s noble ph****sm, he transformed into the dark warrior again, and started casting “D*rk S*vior” spell to Sagami, that spell damages Sagami continuously until her SP ran out.
If you look via Hayama’s point of view, while he (Hayama) is convincing Sagami but his rival is pouncing on the big meat like that, before his very eyes, and by using the skill he can’t use it. Again his plan was destroyed by his love rival, again he can do it so easily, again that person will know what his rival done and gain high Haruno scores to him although his rival never want it. So I think I can understand why Hayama “stops” Hachiman harshly like that. Why does he hate what Hachiman said?
At first, I ever thought
he hates “how to” of Hachiman only. And it’s possible that he doesn’t want Hachiman hurt himself and Sagami like that although it’s emergency. But if my assumption about his purpose is correct, I will say that he is normal person who has his own personal purpose. You can see although Sagami’s mind got heavy damage, Hachiman still continue to cast dark spell, Hayama who is trying his best, can’t stand to watch his rival win him and the reward he is expecting will be pounced by this guy (unintentionally) again, so he stops his rival before he can change Sagami’s mind. With this you can see why he said…
“Hikigaya, shut up for a bit.”
You can see Hayama griped Hachiman’s collar and pushed him to the wall. His doing and remark demands Hachiman to not interfere his effort. But I think Hayama himself would realize that himself destroyed his effort already, because three girls saw Hayama is angry so suddenly. His own rage ended this battle itself because he lost another chance to try again automatically, I mean… his doing made Sagami (she misunderstands that he is trying to protect her from the villain) tried to stop him so she, he and her friends can leave Hachiman alone.
ps. In LN v6, Sagami tried to stop Hayama, but in anime season 1-2, her friends are the one who took that role.
Hayama can’t be the dark warrior.
After Sagami and co. left, Hayama talked to Hachiman before he will leave that…
“…Why is that the only way you know how to do things?”
His remark made Hachiman thinks that he can’t stand to see people hurt and can’t forgive someone who hurt others. But it’s because he sees Hayama as the nice guy so the reasons Hachiman can think why Hayama is so upset, because he sees Hayama’s image only. And Hachiman realizes that he is not nice to Sagami at all, so Hayama stopped him because he is opposite.
But it’s because Hachiman never know Hayama’s feeling and the reason why he tried so much to bring Sagami back. If I want to know why Hayama said like that to Hachiman, I think I should look back at the first sacrifice of Hachiman to destroy Sagami’s policy and everyone will be united and try their best. If you don’t know what happened, you explore in LN v6 or read at Oregairu Analysis – “After” Yukinoshita Haruno Decides to Help Yukino. (The Last Part) (link is above ⇑).
Hayama was there too so he can see how Haruno feels when Hachiman is brave warrior and destroyed tyrant king’s plan and kicked ass lazy citizens. I think you would know how she responded to Hachiman’s bravery. She is very impressed in his bravery who dared to risk everything to change the situation. Now Hayama realized what she likes. It’s high possible that this is the first time he sees her laughs like crazy like this, because she is the daughter of the elite family who must maintain her pose, her honest reaction like this is ultra rare. His rival next to him can do things he never do it. The dark skill that requires the courage to launch it. Hayama never do something like this before, and never choose this method that is not consistent with his ‘nice guy’ image. It means that he can’t get attention from her if he can’t use this method.
But it appeared that he still believe that his nice skill can solve anything. So he still choose nice skill. Although he might realize that being nice to Sagami but he has not time enough to do that is not effective, he can’t choose different method to bring her back. Imagine when he changes himself so suddenly and insults her in public. It’s no way he can cross the line to do that although if he did, he would succeed. But his fear will not allow him to do that. Why do I think he is afraid to use different method? Because Hachiman’s skill needs courage. To confronting people, you need the courage to step forward. If Hayama can’t choose this skill, it means he has not that requirement.
That’s why Hachiman who didn’t want to pamper her, used skill that wiped out her mind so she can escape from him. Again he can solve the problem, but he (Hayama) can’t. He can’t take a risk to solve the problem. And that’s why Haruno is interested in him so much. If you look via Hayama’s point of view, he would not know about Haruno’s secret mission. So when he saw he is so impressed in the first sacrifice of his rival, he interpreted that she likes “how to” of Hachiman only, how he threw his own status to change the bad situation. Hayama judged her from her comment and reaction that time only. If you read my Oregairu Analysis – “After” Yukinoshita Haruno Decides to Help Yukino. (The First Part) (link is above ⇑) already, you would know why she is so impressed in Hachiman’s doing.
When I assumed that Hayama misunderstood that Haruno likes “how to” of Hachiman only, I am sure I’m right, because this belief of Hayama will bring the result in “a certain incident” in LN v8. I will write about that incident later. But for now, Hayama is fail again because he believed in his nice skill. And his rival will gain high Haruno score by that person again because she will be impressed in his “how to”. But I will not think Hayama will know Haruno’s feeling just because they had “time” to discuss about her problem. It’s not like when she vent her feeling to Hachiman during the firework festival. But I don’t think Haruno wants to talk with Hayama since “the certain incident that her sister and him got involved” decided everything already. She will not vent her own feeling for someone who can’t do anything to help her sister, to change the situation so her sister will be saved. That’s why if Haruno will not let him know what’s in her mind.
I don’t have solid evidence that she NEVER vend her feeling to Hayama before. But at the gap between LN v3-4, I ever wrote in my Oregairu Analysis – Finally, “Y” in Hayama Hayato’s Heart Was Revealed (link is above ⇑) that I am sure Hayama ever met her before he will go to the summer vacation in LN v4. So it means that they ever talked. But if he never know about her suffering, it means that she never tell him although they ever met and they are casual. While she didn’t meet Hachiman so often, but she still vend her feeling to him when she has free time enough, although they ever met three times only.
If you are curious why I didn’t include Yuigahama in Haruno’s list to vend her feeling, it’s because she didn’t like this girl. If you want to know more why I think like this, you can read more in Oregairu Analysis – “Before” Yukinoshita Haruno Decides to Help Yukino. (link is above ⇑) There you will find why Haruno can’t like Yuigahama.
And if you are wondering what Haruno vent her suffering to Hachiman, you can read more in Oregairu Analysis – “When” Yukinoshita Haruno Decides to Help Yukino. (link is above ⇑) She talks and hides it.
So it’s no way he can’t know why she is fond of Hachiman either. His misunderstanding is wrong but understanding at the same time. After the first Hachiman’s sacrifice, Hayama saw his rival did that again. So I will assume that Hayama changed his belief [Hachiman makes himself as a victim] into [Hachiman LIKES making himself as a victim] instead.
That’s why Hayama said like that to Hachiman. Because he misunderstood and felt inferior to his love rival again. Because Hachiman’s doing rejected the existence of Hayama – the nice guy, along with all
good things he was trying until now and no wonder that Haruno will like his love rival again.
Sagami is the victim who gains everything.
Sagami who wants to leave this place as fast as possible so she will not listen to Hachiman’s “D*rk S*vior” anymore. I don’t know she realizes this is not the time to get more comfort if she still stays here or not, since this time Hayama is so upset, if she still doesn’t move, she might get another “fire spell” from him instead. Imagine what will happen if Sagami wants to stay there although she knows Hayama is losing his temper?
The final result of Hayama’s plan
When he said to those three girls to hurry back, he didn’t look at them at all. Look from his attention, I think he doesn’t care about them anymore, since they will tell everyone who made Sagami crying but she returns to do her job. As you can see everyone discuss Hachiman’s doing. For some people who sympathize with him and understand in what he done. All attentions focused on Hachiman only, and also “the attention from that person” he wishes.
- Hayama wants to make Haruno interests in him and the best opportunity to make his wish comes true, is the School Cultural Festival.
- But he is not sure she will come as the quest or participate in the festival. So he needs to click stand by mode so he will not be the male representative for his class, by giving his classmates that he would play the band performance.
- In order to check out Haruno will become the quest or join in the festival, he needs to check at the planning committee room because she will visit her little sister or her acquaintances.
- He goes to the committee room with Hachiman because if Haruno was in the room, he can check her feeling by judging from her reaction when she meets him.
- When he sees Haruno is approaching Hachiman, Hayama rushed to the room and stopped quietly. However, he was punched back quietly by her because he interferes her.
- After he listened to Haruno’s conversation, he is sure that she will participate in the festival too. After he confirmed this, he picked the documents and left like that, so he can plan the love strategies so he can meet her and will make her interest in him if he finds any opportunities.
- When he looked at the bad situation in the planning committee, he volunteers to help them by being the representative of the volunteer organizations, so he can gain attention from Haruno by helping her little sister and the committee, and he can visit where Haruno would be by acting like he is coordinating with her band.
- It’s possible that he regrets he was the one who made the situation in the committee worse, because he was the one who convinced Sagami to be the female representative of their class. So he volunteers to help for atonement.
- The inferior feeling of Hayama is increasing after he heard Hachiman’s opinion about who should go to visit Yukino.
- Hayama feels lonely because no matter he tried to send his hatred feeling to his love rival, but Hachiman didn’t feel like he expected.
- But after he saw Hachiman’s sacrifice and Haruno is very pleased in this, he feels so upset and left, because his love rival stole her attention in a single blow.
- When Hachiman confronted Sagami and reported the situation to Hiratsuka-sensei and everyone, Hayama misunderstood about Hachiman’s intention because he just believes in Hachiman’s word when he reported as if he is the victim of the bad environment that the chairman created. This result made Hayama thinks that Hachiman is making himself as a victim.
- Hachiman’s doing is not what Hayama can do, because it will reject in what he is trying to be (the nice guy). So his inferior complex makes him suffer because Haruno likes Hachiman’s doing, the doing that rejects
goodthings Hayama is trying to do until now and even his existence.
- Hayama’s effort continue again by playing the same/similar band performance and using the same musical instrument as Haruno when she ever did in the School Cultural Festival.
- When he knows that the planning committee can’t find Sagami, he volunteers to buy more time for them and used social apps in his smartphone to search for her, but all of these for his own purpose again. He even used Yumiko, who has feeling for him to help him gain attention from the one he has feeling for.
- It appeared that his effort to play band perform to show off to Haruno is fail since she is helping her sister to find Sagami by playing the band perform. But this is the last and the biggest opportunity for him, before the festival will end, to make Haruno look at him by bringing the most wanted back.
- However, his plan to catch Sagami was destroyed by his love rival. Although he and her friends brought her back, everyone will know “who” convinced her to come back. And as he expected, Haruno gave high Haruno scores ♥♥♥♥♥♥ to Hachiman, while he didn’t gain anything from her.
- Hayama’s belief toward Hachiman’s doing was changed into [Hachiman likes making himself as a victim] since his rival did that again. That’s why Hayama said like that to Hachiman before he will leave with Sagami and her friends. And his belief will be carried to LN v8 and becomes the acting for his own purpose.
So this is the report of Hayama’s love plan during the School Cultural Festival.
But his love story still doesn’t end yet.
Although his love plan failed by Hachiman, it doesn’t mean his feeling will change with that reason.
If you want to know more, LN v8, anime Zoku ep3, manga -Monologue- v7 is the next stop. There you will know how he feels if he got call from Haruno and she wants him to come
(to her) now. But when he comes to the place she told him, what he sees is not what he expected.
