Welcome to the open forum for volume 1 of My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong as I Expected! Or Oregairu for short. For all who wish to participate, it’s about time to pick up a copy of this light novel (release date: September 27).
What is My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong as I Expected?
Synopsis: Hachiman Hikigaya is a cynic. “Youth” is a crock, he believes–a sucker’s game, an illusion woven from failure and hypocrisy. But when he turns in an essay for a school assignment espousing this view, he’s sentenced to work in the Service Club, an organization dedicated to helping students with problems in their lives! How will Hachiman the Cynic cope with a job that requires–gasp!–optimism?
Okay, I have the book. Now what?
