...well i found this out.. When searching..

volume 5 summary part 3 (seanver.com/2011/04/18/boku-wa-tomodachi-ga-sukunai-—-volume-5-part-3)

Didn't know Seanver is back ^^

Before reading the whole translated novel, I always read the summary on his blog:D
In fact I become interested to read the manga since I always read the Haganai title on his blog when I was still reading for OreImo only :heh:

Tower (http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Boku_wa_Tomodachi_ga_Sukunai:_Volu me_4_The_Tower) chapter is up.... Oh, so hideous.

Johnny
2011-11-29, 01:33
Even though Yozora was doing it for laughs. I think I've seen similar warped hairstyles on those foreign runway shows. She may be onto something there...:heh:

Also Sena still gets spanked? Well she does act childish at times, but spanking at that age. Whatever floats Pegasusa's boat I suppose...

Were Yozora and Rika really thought the Tower they did was really cute or they just a great actress, so they can make Sena feels good about it? As for Yukimura, as he seems not capable to tell a lie, I thinks he was indeed thought it was good :heh:

The girl talk about their hair was certainly cute though. They just look like three normal girls there, aside from Sena and Yozora tsundere-ish "only your hair that's good" XD

Yozora felt bad and apologize to Sena? I wonder why she starts now though.

Can't help going DAWWW both time when Sena murmurs "Uuu Kodaka" :hyper-^v^:

Has to be deliberate from the start - Yozora would never had any intention to 'service' Sena's hair otherwise. Though they did went overboard. The irony is the 'girl chat' is exactly what normals do (on the outside), except it was all fake. And interestingly what the group of misfits are pursuing are the 'outward appearance' of a riaju rather than the actual fulfillment. It could also be a play on the typical girl chat, social groups etc in a high school setting that came with the fake flattery to each other, nice on the surface be bitching behind the back situation.

VVolf
2011-11-29, 16:17
That was fast. Still anticipating the remaining chapter for book 1.

I believe they really did think it looked good on Sena (Yozora included. She might not have intended to make it so, but it turned out pretty good - for her, as well as the others, sans Kodaka. And Kodaka also stated that it didn't look like Yozora was acting too. ). And they did say, "...but when we think back on it, it really wasn't (cute)" afterwards. That makes me think they were honest when they commented on their masterpiece.

Hopefully with the apology, people would start to see Yozora in a different light.

bakAnki
2011-11-29, 21:11
I guess it depends on our interpretation then ^^
But I do (and want to) believe that the girl talks and they praised their work on Sena's hair were genuine too, since for once it's nice to see they act like a normal girls and friendly to each other ^^

It also nice to see Yozora felt bad for her action and actually had the courage to apologize. But still I wonder why she thought this (the tower on Sena) was overboard and she need to apologize while before I think she had done more terrible...... 'pranks' :heh:

Has anyone really said that? Dude, the School Festival ~Activity meeting~ and Movie chapter just recently add on Baka-Tsuki, it doesn't mean someone lost interest because we didn't immediately post our thought here. Not everyone checked Baka-Tsuki (or Vexed) everyday so it's understandable if no one haven't posted yet :heh:
But anyway, thanks for the heads up ;)



- Ah, so Yozora just know the Kitty cafe from Rika? I thought she already going there regularly.
- Kodaka and his obsession of comedy XD
"Meat actually said something logical. The world's going to end tomorrow..."
"To think that Sena-senpai said something logical, aliens are going to invade the Earth tomorrow..."
"Sena-anego said something logical! Is this a sign foretelling a world-shifting disaster..."
I LOL XDD
"An--An-chan!! Ummm... Kuh kuh kuh... Pat my head more, my loyal kindred... Ufufufu..."
Kobatoooo <3
Now I'm more curious on the chapter where they went to junior school festival and see Kobato and her classmate...
"Fool, in Monster Movies and Horror Films, the ones who are eaten or killed right at the start of the movie are always dumb blondes like you. That's an unwritten law of movie making. That's why this role is the most suitable for you."
:heh:
"That's right. Despite how I look, I'm actually quite a fan of Shark Movies! Seeing those absent-minded Riajuu couples play at the beach before getting devoured by the Shark, no matter how many times I rewatch it it's still awesome!"
"You're disgusting! And what do you mean despite how you look, you look exactly that type!"
"Hmm, the ones here most suitable to become shark-bait couple are..."
Yozora abruptly stopped mid-sentence., a sullen look on her face.
"Yozora...?"
"Ahhh, I still think the one to die right at the start should be that stupid blonde alone."
So even Yozora already know that at least on the outside look Kodaka and Sena is a good match, well for shark-bait couple (but it still counts as couple XD) :heh:

It was Rika?
What's happen with her on that chapter calling Sena 'meat' too? She's trying to behave like Yozora? :confused:

It is Yozora, the author of Haganai has a rather unique writing style when it comes to two characters saying something at once / in order. For example


"Meat actually said something logical. The world's going to end tomorrow..."
"To think that Sena-senpai said something logical, aliens are going to invade the Earth tomorrow..."
"Sena-anego said something logical! Is this a sign foretelling a world-shifting disaster..."

Yozora, Rika and Yukimura's voices were tinted with a hint of real fear.

The paragraph after the spoken lines denote who says what. From the example above, Yozora says the first line, Rika the second, and Yukimura the third.

This does result in some rather awkward translations, like this:


"... I don't think this will work."
"Although Rika's never heard of a 'Friend Cafe', in a nutshell its a cafe where the waiters are closer to you right? Such cafes exist too - cafes where the waiters talk to you casually."
"To be honest, anyone who went to such a cafe would just get pissed off even more."

Me, Rika and Sena admitted.

Normally, "I" should go last (Rika, Sena and I), but due to the way the sentences are presented, I have to place "Me" ahead of "Rika" and "Sena".

Hope that clears things up :)

P/S: Anyone a fan of Rika? :3

Yep, I noticed his writing style, that's why I couldn't believe Yozora said that word to Sena in the first place, so I asked here to be sure ^^

Well, perhaps it just another Yozora's way to "have fun" with Sena XD

P/S: Anyone a fan of Rika? :3

*raise hand*

I like her since the Gundam x Eva scene that revealed her as this perverted genius. And her comment, joke, and how her mind works after that is just awesome XDD
Though after read the translation of several chapters of vol 7, especially the last chapter, Rika shown her other side that gave me a surprise. So she faked (or at least half-faked from my understanding) her cheerful & pervert side all these times?

she wasnt actingm she really is like that she just isnt dense or oblivious to her sorroundings.
she was trying to get kodakas attention, so she changed her hairstyles, he never said nothing so she just let it slip she thougth he was just dense, later she found he noticed he just dint wanted to say anything, that and other couple of things lead her to find out kodaka isnt dense, he just pretend to be because hes afraid to change how thing are, thet kinda pissed her and lead to the confrontation in the last novel.

btw havent there been any word on a new volume ?

That's an anthology of stories written by various popular love comedy authors in the Haganai universe. While I've heard of all of them, the only author whose work I've read is Yuuji Yuuji's OreShura.

I know of a lot of my friends that stopped being Sena fans when they heard about this :heh:

I knew this from the start, but in the end Stella is just the best girl of the lot :heh:

Johnny
2011-12-08, 05:15
Sena's creepy level just skyrocketed after reading that chapter. Sorry, I just don't see her even remotely being able to redeem herself, because from the gist of it she has no clue how truly creepy of a person she really is...

With just limited info on the remaining untranslated volumes. She has no chance in hell at ending up with Kodaka. That's just my opinion though...

And I agree, Stella is awesome...

Newprimus
2011-12-08, 06:43
Nah, Sena's not being creepy, she's just being kinda misguided and socially inept as usual. It's even in the chapter; she's imitating some old chinese guy who wanted revenge against someone who knocked off his family so he did something like sleep on dirt or something to constantly remind himself of the bitterness.

Plastering Yozora's pictures all over her room is her way of constantly reminding herself how much she hates (though probably not as much as she thinks) Yozora. The wig is just added touch.

Being socially clueless as she is she's probably unaware how creepy she comes off as, but she herself isn't being creepy.

Okay yeah, as much as I like Sena, she is creepy on this one. And to think Kodaka will get another Sena flag (well, he did though with Pegasus), she basically just badmouthed and distracted him rather than taught him :heh:
And (little bit) misleading chapter title, huh? I laughed reading Kodaka's inner thought well describing Pegasus's *naked* body XD
Stella the butroll was as awesome as always:p


And thank you HolyCow for vol 7 update! \^o^/
"What's with that interested expression on your face? Not only are you handsome, you also posses a natural sense of humour, I can't find anything wrong with you! You're the absolute best match for that perfect Kashiwazaki Sena are you not! That's just so annoying, I'm so envious, I'm so jealous!!! I shall be going now!!!"

Ohooo, a new girl that think Kodaka is perfect (and has good sense of humor too, just like Kodaka thought he has, lol), Haganai is filled with interesting girls XDD

mironicus
2011-12-08, 15:29
Well it's Yozoras fault that Sena suffers and feels that way.

Yozora just do not want her in the club anyway and no human likes to be humiliated. It's fascinating that Sena told Kodaka that she feels that way. Another hint that she really trusts/likes him. Kodaka has to take this more seriously.

New character seems misguided, but interesting nonetheless. She sure got some unintentional good points in Kodaka's book right off the bat...:heh:

New chapter, kitaaaaaa~
The Homoge Club (http://vexedscans.blogspot.com/2011/12/boku-wa-tomodachi-ga-sukunai-novel-vol_13.html)


So that's why Kodaka almost never compliment girl's look vocally I guess? Though it was hilarious, "Did I just say that loud?" :heh:

They moved closer to each other, hugged each other, and pressed their lips together in a passio―――― Wait, whaaaaaaaaaaat!!!!!!!?????
I laughed, a lot. I can imagine his shock and his face there. Though he should see it coming with the title and the blu-ray cover :heh:

Finally Yozora approved Sena's love of eroge, but Sena had to pay it with something else important too XD

I want to believe that the girl in Sena's eroge looking like Kobato was just a coincidence.
:heh:

I'm curious about Sena. When the 2011 light novel award took place, how far did Haganai was? Did it already on vol 4?
On the first 3 novel the focus was mostly on her with those flags and showing her dere side so I think it was not a surprise she ranked on the award. But on the vol 4 after Yozora cut her hair and became more dere, Sena had her creepy side shown more than before, I'm amazed she could rank 4th best female character. Well I'm Sena fan and I still like her but with the previous chapter and this one, I agree and admit that her obsession towards Yozora and Kobato is creepy and I won't be surprised if other will change her opinion of her :heh:

LC
2011-12-15, 07:22
You gotta feel bad for Rika; Kodaka feels that she's in his "league" but he won't even give her a chance.

"Homoge Club"? I know that Yozora is powerless against Rika (and Kodaka lol), but still surprised she sat down and watched it. Speaking of that, Yozora seems to be a whole different character when not interacting with Sena.

So, this is probably the first chapter where Yozora clearly indicates that she has romantic feelings for Kodaka. And she had thought those feelings were weird....

"Ahh... Even Rika wouldn't be able to do that one~... It feels like I'd lose something important as a person if I did." MTE Rika. It's funny how Sena still runs out crying.. even though she won. :heh:

Great chapter!

Johnny
2011-12-15, 21:38
Kodaka is an unintentionally smooth operator...:heh:

Rika is still up there as far as my favorite character. The glasses are fake bit reminded of another character that I can't remember that also did it for the look of it...

No need to keep kicking a dead horse on how creepy Sena is...

Sena's reality distortion field..(or physical canceller?) Where by setting she is perfect and will pull through, so despite seeming impossible odds, she just might pull through just like she will end up top scoring without any efforts. One thing with haganai is there are both positive and negative development when Kodaka reflect on the actions of his harem. Both Yozora and Sena had those moments.

Speculations for later Volumes.

They still have made no friends outside the club even in Volume 7. The most time they are just doing their own stuff in the club room. Sena plays her games, Yozora reads... everybody has their own hobbies and there is no one with similiar interests within the group.

However, there are some new characters introduced in Volume 7. And as Kodaka now is known as Sena's official boyfriend in the school, the girls outside the club will see him in a different light it seems. He is feared by the boys, but admired by some girls (handsome delinquent). It is easier for the girls in the school to approach him. Maybe Kodaka will go the Kyosuke route like in OreImo and he will be able to find friends for Sena and Yozora?

Yozora still needs a real Tomo-chan and Sena some female otaku girlfriends. Kodaka can't replace those friends because the girls have romancing affections for him and are bitching around.

you got it a little wrong, all of kodaka beign sena's boyfriend and he beign handsome, is just the simple misunderstanding/opinion of yusa, other students dont see him as handsome and think hes forcing the girls to be with him, to the point not anyone in the club thinks he is good looking.}

Okay, i have read a machine-translated volume 7 from Chinese to my language. What does the things Rika told Kodaka in the end mean? I dont get it.

it means that rika aleready know that kodaka, know they are already friends, but saying out loud would mean they already acieved their goal, so kodaka is afraid of doing that, not knowing how or if things would change, it also implies that kodaka already knows what the girls feel about him, so hes is just playing the dense character for the same reason.

LOL, it's a good thing that the whole club didn't come to the movies with them. Although I think Maria and Rika's reaction would probably have been hilarious to see...

If only Yozora knew some of the reactions Kodaka had she would be getting rid of that facade rather quickly. Well at least when she's only around Kodaka...

Yozora - Sora - Dere Mode confirmed.....

It makes us wonder just how much happier Boku Wa Tomodachi would be if Sora and Taka did not suffer that ten years interruption.....

I really wonder how this would have played out if Sena was there... on the other hand , Yozora will never show her "Sora" and "dere" personality to Sena....

If this was animated , it could really become an amazing episode , provided it was done well. For some reason , while reading this , I was imagining how this episode could have been potentially adapted in a Season 2 in the future...

Not a spoiler, but I'll tag it anyway.

Kodaka has been rumored as Sena's boyfriend from early on; I think that it was in volume 3 or 2. In Volume 1 the rumor was that he had his way with her by force (same for Yozora), but the rumor seems to have toned down, probably because Sena keeps acting naturally towards Kodaka and doesn't behave like a "victim to an attacker" would.
Translation : The rumor of him being good with the ladies or having a popular girlfriend did nothing for him


About future events, well... maybe, just maybe....
More club members? Or perhaps some love rivals or something. I can see Kodaka saving the Ria-ou from a group of delinquents or something without him realizing it. I can also see the Ria-ou being a fake persona and her being in reality the worst misfit introduced so far

Wow, I always thought Sister Kate I'll call her, was older then that. Well she certainly doesn't act like a 15 year old girl...

Yea I totally thought she was like a year older than Kodoka, complete surprise that she is younger.
And true it's a little odd how she doesn't quite act her age but this isn't something new in manga and anime, altho I get the feeling it feels maybe her personality is a tad forced here.

Well still a pretty entertaining read, imouto get!:heh:

Vol 7 Childhood Friend chapter up. (http://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/index.php?title=Boku_wa_Tomodachi_ga_Sukunai:_Volu me_7_Childhood_Friend)

Hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed translating it. Merry Christmas everyone!


Another chapter where (imo) Rika steals the show, and you get to see a rather different side of her, although rather subtly :3

Small bits of foreshadowing like these really make Vol 7 awesome, and they really make Rika shine was a character. It eventually cultivates into a very powerful last chapter, which I hope to finish up before February :D

Great chapter.

Now we have an indirect statement from Sena and Rika that they want Kodaka for themselves (rewrite his role so they end up with him in the movie). And Yozora's interpretation of the childhood friend shows her romantic feelings for Kodaka (she's blindly in love).

Thanks for the present, Holy Cow...

So far with what I read this about the only time I disliked Kodaka. He was far too laid back for me in this chapter and just mildly protested while all the others walked all over his character. I can see why Rika is getting upset with his mannerism...

What makes every 'Kodaka alone with Yukimura' moments interesting for me is Kodaka's inner thought. He describing it very well it made you can't help but imagine Yukimura's body and forget it's a man's body until Kodaka made you remember :heh:
At least until this chapter XD


EDIT: Vexed has released new chapter, Comparing Answers (http://vexedscans.blogspot.com/2011/12/boku-wa-tomodachi-ga-sukunai-novel-vol_25.html) :D
...Sena actually managed to corner Yozora. That is to say, she won for once, but sadly, she didn't realize it.

That scene and the roller coaster cursing scene are the scenes I'm hoping they'll include on next season:p

Well why not? Writing can be a good way to treat your own problems. Haganai is sometimes very authentic. If you have few friends you can identify with the characters in some ways.

The way the story is written and based on the ending of Volume 7 it seems that the whole story will come to an end as Kodaka just can't ignore the feelings of the girls forever.

It's interesting how they portrayed Sena's reaction once Maria showed affection for her. It was clear since the start but that completely and openly shows us that Maria is ng to satisfy the needs of Sena while in Kimoi Niku mode, whereas 3 spoonful of Kobato would undoubtedly made the trick.

This I guess should not be easy as some things will be censored anyway.

There is something funny about the screams:

Yozora: It's all your fault! My life is not going well, ****** (I couldn't really hear this part) never paying attention to me. Save me **daka! (I couldn't hear this either)

Sena: I'm falling, ngah! K-Kodaka, Kodaka Kodaka Kodaka Kodakaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Even in fear Yozora can't call out Kodakas name clearly and loud because of shyness which is somehow funny and also tragic.

I must say after the revealing of the childhood friendship Yozora is just becoming more boring and plain in the novel. She is not the main heroine anymore, she is just more like a background character and jealous about every girl that get Kodakas attention. Can you imagine to live a fulfilled life with someone like her? It would be just plain boring.

As in real life the characters that are more livelier gets more attention from the male protagonist.

Really? She pretty much acts the same way, IMO. She was always jealous of Sena. If anything she becomes more interesting since we get to see more sides of her in chapters like the Cat Cafe.

Ok so this is my first time ever joining a forum of some sort but what i was thinking about the other day was what if the Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai plus manga was for people who want sena to win and the reason they made it is because someone else beside Sena is going to win. You know like have an altarnate version so that when she loses it may call the public down a little. Idk its just a thought.

But honestly I thought that Plus does go to Sena route. Why bother change Sena to Yozora's role as the main heroine if it only meant to be more accepted to younger audience? :confused:

Btw, this is the LN thread though, Plus should be discussed on the manga thread, shouldn't it? ^^

They have chosen the most popular, sympathic, beautiful, cheerful and refined character as main heroine. Choosing Sena = making more money. The art is more beautiful and the adult stuff was left out, so it can be read by a younger demographic.

And about the route the Novel/Anime takes... it's still exciting because I don't really see a clear ending. If you compare this to Clannad the chosen girl was the one that also had a family in the story. All other girls only appeared at school / club meetings and had no family background.

And the only girl with a family in Haganai is.... Sena! :D

bakAnki
2012-02-08, 06:02

Don't take me wrong, Sena is my Haganai favorite girl. The point of my previous post was I thought they promoted Sena to be the main heroine on Plus so she and Kodaka can get more of their moment (ie Sena end/route) aside so younger readers can enjoy the series too :heh:
Although the latest chapter (chapter 5) was Taka and Sora-focused chapter like the original, chapter 1-4 and the extra did gave us Kodaka and Sena moment. Before Yozora joined Sena is already use to go home together with Kodaka, (unconsciously?) get extremely close and hugged him when he fights Yozora on the video game, get worried about him on the courage test, and she even made their supposedly 'virtual'/training date to be a real one and getting all worried of his relationship with Yozora (on Plus she already knew Kodaka and Yozora are childhood friend because she overheard Yozora talking to herselfTomo-chan even before Kodaka remember it). Kodaka also taught Sena the importance and fun of playing music on a band.

The art is more beautiful and the adult stuff was left out, so it can be read by a younger demographic.

Art is subjective to each person since I find Plus's artwork isn't as good as Buriki (LN) or Itachi (original manga version) ^^

But yeah, there aren't any fanservices and Yozora hasn't use rape-involving insult to Sena yet IIRC XD
I wonder what's going to happen when Rika joins though, they probably nerfed her pervert too, little bit shame since it's her charm XD

I just don't hope that Sena's motivation to marry Kodaka is mainly the thought of having a child for herself that looks like Kobato-chan and dumping him after she gets what she wants. :D

In the LN there is a scene where Sena is bored because she is alone with Yukimura in the clubroom. She texts a mail to Kodaka that he should come. Kodaka is reading in the library and as he is about to leave he gets another mail from Sena that Kobata-chan arrived in the club room. She texts him "... so I don't need you anymore!" which pisses him off. :D

Sena has obviously shown that she has a soft spot for Kodaka and that very same soft spot has gotten bigger and bigger as they keep interacting with each other..... Yet, if for some reason there it was the choice of either marrying Kodaka or Kobato, do we even have to wonder on who would Sena choose? :heh:

I'm pondering as to which route this is going to end with. If he did end up with Sena, he'd be living with constant financial support from sena's father, and live a spoiled life. But Yozora on the other hand lives in an apartment with her family, she isn't poor although drastically different finacially from Sena. They can both make him happy, and he definitely holds feelings for the both of them. So in such a situation you should evaluate who would lose more? Sena's going to get the best education, compared to him where I doubt he'll even manage to finish HS. In reality she would dump him right after graduating. Now Yozora, a close childhood friend which got sepperated due to a misunderstanding, which probably would've led to a confession, if she showed up. The choice is obvious, but I may be stereotyping.

Based on Kodakas character he could choose Yozora mainly of a guilty conscience because he left her alone ten years ago and he feels responsible that she turned into a bad girl.

So maybe he will choose Yozora and they go out together first, but she notices that he is not very happy, so they eventually will break up and she releases him from his guilty feelings.

After that Kodaka will eventually confess his love to the girl he actually likes (Sena, Rika or Yukimura).

Buriki is rather popular with his unique style and anyone can identify his work right away.

But Kobuichi and Miyama are abit too 'standard' in their style...

Well... Kodaka never thinks about his own happiness. He really feels guilty because he left her alone. In the novel he even dreams that Yozora hates him now. Just look at the summaries of Novel 5.

“What are you muttering, Taka?”

Kodaka sees a boy… no, a girl, a black-haired girl wearing a cap and dressing like a boy.

“So well, don’t forget our promise tomorrow” says… Sora.

“Wait, Yozora!”

“Taka.. how do you know my name?” she says, shocked.

“I’m leaving the city tomorrow!” cries Kodaka, “But even if we are apart, we will be friends forever! I won’t forget about you! I’m sorry, Yozora”

Kodaka finally is able to say what he couldn’t say ten years ago.

“I can’t forgive you. Die”

And all of a sudden, Yozora attacks him, ends up getting a horse head (like the one she used to scare Maria) and… Kodaka wakes up.

*Friends forever* - LOL.

That's... A comedy scene... You know that right... :heh: ?


Anyway if we go with that conversation he had with Rika, unless something changes in his personality, it's more accurate to say that Kodaka is all too conscious of his own personal happiness because he doesn't want to disrupt the status quot and just wants everyone to stay as friends because he's afraid of change.

Lol surerman I'm not sure whether I should just let sleeping dogs lie or to reply you... Firstly Yozora's sharp tongue doesn't extend to Kodaka, so any arguments made for that, which is pretty much the main armament for any Sena fan, is automatically thrown out of court when applied to Kodaka :p

Secondly, and here's the kicker- Kobato feels safer with Yozora over Sena or even Rika :p Yozora is the only one that puts her mortal enemies (Sena and Maria) in their place. And more than anything Kodaka looks out for his little sister, and I would say she's the most important girl to him at this moment :p

The end of volume 7 gives some hint that Kodaka is about to realize that he has to go forward. So in volume 8 he will probably start to date the girls who asks him out.

Speculation: The first girl who will confess to him and ask him out will be Rika. She does not have any problems to show her feelings and so she will be the first one.

potchip
2012-02-15, 19:07
Realizing, and acting on that realization is different things.

Rika is simply out, doesn't matter what she says Kodaka just ignores, realising she has 'serious' moments notwithstanding. And admittedly, Rika's actually one of the more empathic person in the group, she actually understands other people's feelings, unlike the 2 main girls. She's overly undulgent on herself and less concerned about other's perceptions yet I don't think she's one to force herself upon another.

Both Sena and Yozora have already asked Kodaka out. The key issue is it has to be recognised by both parties as a date, with an objective from the beginning.

Add to your list Shuffle and Mashiro iro Simphony. And as I said before, yes, the author is gonna milk the triangle as long as he can cause he doesn't have the balls to do so and sure doesn't even has a damn idea about what do with the series if that ever happens.

Isn't this rather clearly lampshaded in King of the Riajuus. Kodaka's reluctance to break out of the love-polygon is motivated by fear. Once he does that, what then? Will their incipient friendships fall apart once he commits? Does he feel secure enough in his friendships to break the hearts of all of his friends save the one he reciprocates to?

In a way, that's analogous to the author's dilemma, I suspect.

The vibe i get from him he doesnt really harbor proper feelings for any of them kodaka seems like the kind of guy that is better of ending up with the warm friendly nice girl due to his rather cold but still kind personality after all opposites attract kinda thing. Whether it be sena or yozora their both kind of... annoyingly cold? i dont know what you'd call yozora shes not a tsundere but shes not nice either shes just really... bland? kodoka sort of is as well but hes a nice guy hes just misunderstood. Then sena if you want me to choose between sena and yozora even though i dont think either are really a good match i'd pick her. Shes a tsundere to kodaka atleast when things get a bit mooshy and lovey dovey but shes cute aswell the astaroth chapter at the end her saying they have to date first was kind of cute. So yeah out of those two who i guess are the most likely romances for kodaka if he gets any at all sena would be the best bet and yozora stays as his best friend thats how i'd see it going, but i kind of hope its neither. Plus if he dates either he'll probably never make any male friends since their both apparently babes lol.

But in saying that i think its to late in the novel to introduce any new main characters so maybe he just confirms his feelings and stays friends with all of them? its honestly the only route i see logically.

Additionally whats the story with the student council president that yozora hates? could there maybe be some story behind that? maybe they were friends in the past afterall yozora did say she went to that theme park with a friend from middle school and it wasnt kodaka so?

i hope yusa aoi and student council prez get more involved and constant recurring characters it gets a little borin sometimes with just the neighbours club girls need some more variety.

In a way, that's analogous to the author's dilemma, I suspect.

Like i was saying in the previous post i think it would be better if he remained friends with all of them and got "miss. outsider" That none of them knew seems like the only option to keep all the friendships stable

Realizing, and acting on that realization is different things.

Rika is simply out, doesn't matter what she says Kodaka just ignores, realising she has 'serious' moments notwithstanding.

What wait so they have both confessed their feelings and asked him out? interesting... but the fact he didnt recipricate says something... Maybe they'll introduce a new character next volume only kodaka comes into contact with for a while and he builds feelings for her that would be interesting

kodaka seems like the kind of guy that is better of ending up with the warm friendly nice girl due to his rather cold but still kind personality

Kodakas impression of the girls:
Rika = warm friendly nice girl, she is Kodakas ideal type, but her personality grosses him out
Sena = high class lady, hard to approach
Yozora = distant, hard to approach

On the other side:
Kodaka = calm, friendly, dependable, distant and... hard to approach

What wait so they have both confessed their feelings

No, they haven't. They both can't express their feelings directly to him.
Being loners, they share the same problem to approach others. In the novel, Kodaka is very critical and there is really no person he actually accepts for being themselves. This is the reason why those kind of people are unable to make friends. They can't express their feelings for another directly because of the fear of rejection.

However... look at the movie script chapter in volume 7. Yozora made a script where some childhood friends (played by Kodaka and Yozora) ends up together. Sena and Rika protests and wants to rewrite the script so the guy Kodaka plays ends up with them instead. This chapter is so hilarious! :D

The most annoying thing with LN writers is when they do get sick they never tell us what its with or how long their going to be out for. But if its enough for him to mention and be emitted upon emergency its most likely life threating just like the author of ZnT :(

According to pubmed, most cases of Acute pancreatitis go away in a week or two after active treatment. However, it is indeed a case of concern, especially if he often drinks alcohol, as it can develop into something more serious and irreversible in the long run. But right now, he's actively tweeting so my guess is that it's not something life-threatening right now. Just my guess though.

It's a bit more complex than that. To me, it seems he's suppressing logic and ignoring the signs because any change might bring the whole club down. In a sense he's stuck in his own conceptions.

^This. Which a certain member will finally call him out on it later. Can't really blame him though. Unless we get a delicious harem end. Some hearts may be broken along with some friendships that might also be severed and he understands that...

My favorite line this chapter XD

And daww, Maria and Kobato swimming on the onsen. Wonder how the two of them really look like, especially Kobato, when others aren't with them :3


But seriously, what is this 'family circumstances" Yukimura's talking about that make her wear male uniform on the school? I don't think her parents would go so far by faking her birth certificate or other documents, maybe Yukimura just persistent to wear male uniform even the teachers told her she's a girl off-screen (and thought they're joking) and just let her has her way? o.o

BTW, I haven't been able to read more about Hirasaka's situation, I mean; it's pretty obvious that there is going to be a hiatus and whatnot, but I think that they haven't been too official with it?

i think thats whythere were new characters introduced, i do agree the balance in the club members, but they are stagger, new characters are probably to move forward development since clearly kodaka dont want/allows any as ting are right now.

More side characters are better, like introducing Kodakas father or Senas mother for example.

Even some storys after Kodaka confesses to one of the girls and what that means for the club would be interesting enough (will they stay friends...?).

dragonroots
2012-03-07, 00:07
What wait so they have both confessed their feelings and asked him out? interesting... but the fact he didnt recipricate says something... Maybe they'll introduce a new character next volume only kodaka comes into contact with for a while and he builds feelings for her that would be interesting

They haven't confessed, but they have both asked him out through their own method. Sena asked him out to the pool saying she wanted to know how to swim in case one of her (game character) friends asks her to the beach, and Yozora asked him out to a movie (the way she did it was hilarious aswell) but disguised it as research for the movie they were filming.

"......Damn it, I messed up, again..."

It seems that the more Yozora tries, the worse off she is. lol It's also funny that she apparently is the bifauxnen of the group, yet she's probably has the most feminine sensibilities besides Yukimura.

mironicus
2012-03-20, 15:34
She is always planning things and hopes that they work out for her favor. Look at Episode 12. For one month she walks around near Kodaka hoping he would remember her. And after remembering her she hopes they can remain their friendship or even fall in love - a happy ending like in a cheap manga story. She manipulates others and at the end it always backfires. She does not reflect her deeds and on the other hand she is pitying herself for being unlucky. She is always waiting that others approach her. But you can't make someone fall in love with you in this way.

Hagenai is somehow funny, yet very tragic. However... persons like Yozora with their problems actually exists in real life! Looking at the liner notes the author himself admits that this is a autobiographic story.

She is actually being liked by her classmates, so they approach her and want to be friends, but she don't take their feelings seriously - just like Kodaka himself. Rika is pointing this out very good. Just wait for the next summary - it will be the last one for Volume 7.

I've been thinking about a gender-flipped Haganai as well, it would be interesting. I think that Male Sena's advances on Male Kobato would be disturbing as well. (Heck, they already are. :heh:)

As for the chapter, I'm liking Rika more and more. She's so straight-forward, and I wish she wasn't considered a side character.

"...She'll betray me... I just know that woman is going to betray me later..."

Yozora makes me sad sometimes. :( After ten years of assuming that her only friend betrayed her, no wonder she feels this way about people, even though Kodaka didn't do that really. She has to learn not to expect the worst in people. She's been carrying this problem for years, and, really, she's the most emotionally damaged character of this series. There's a lot of potential for growth in Yozora, and that's what makes her interesting.

"I've still got a chance to make it work with a stupid, friendless yankee in the real world!"

I hope she does, but Kodaka is getting on my nerves with his feigned ignorance of what's going on.

Not really "feigned". Kodaka himself is the hardest one to approach in the whole story, not able to realize why he can't make any friends. But there is Rika who points it out.

At this point, he probably knows that should he reciprocate any of those signals the four girls are subtly hinting at him, it's possible that the strains of a romance would easily break the tenuous relationships between the members of Neighbor club. Their young friendships may not be able to survive it.

You forgot: They USED to be friends.

From an objective perspective, by Volume 6, they are friends by any other name. Whatever their willful refusal to completely acknowledge that, I'd say that they've slipped up into the Friendzone from Acquaintanceship or Club-mate. A fact, I'd imagine that both Rika and Kodaka are most aware of consciously (at least, as we can see), even if Sena and Yozora and Yukimura aren't.

I'd imagine Rika's main fear right now is BEING left in the Friendzone.

Scratch that. All the girls are subconsciously trying to get above the Friendzone.

mironicus
2012-04-15, 14:28
Kodaka tries his best to treat all the girls equally and not to prefer anyone (seeing them as targets). The club and the members are a community of purpose.

I guess that also the girls (mostly Sena) are aware that the club might be not the same if they all acknowledge that they are friends. It's significant that even Sena waived to pursue Kodaka romantically. From this standpoint they all hold back their feelings.

Sena's conflicted, I'd imagine. But then again, there are some implications that Sena is Bisexual in orientation....

Though indeed, if Kodaka and Sena do marry, I'd both envy and pity Kobato. My sister in law is a lesbian, and has hots for me indeed.

Kirito
2012-04-17, 21:13
It kind of makes sense considering that the club has the people who're starting to matter to her, and it's like a "oasis" to her in someways. Being in the club allows her to be herself and wants to keep things the way they are without so much has having to dramatically changing anything aka possibly going out with Kodaka (it's obvious she's in love with him) etc.

It's just my thoughts on the volumes and the stuff I've read for the past 7 volumes.

potchip
2012-04-18, 03:55
Hah..you guys got sucked into the romantic part of this romantic comedy..

As it currently stands, things that pleases Sena, in ranking:

1. Able to do XX+OO to Kobato
2. Yozora become submissive to Sena
3. Able to step on Yozora
4. Be praised by Yozora
5. Be merely acknowledged by Yozora
...
Somewhere down the list is Kodaka.

As for Yozora, it goes something like this:
1. Back to 10 years ago
2. Cats
3. Kodaka begging to resume past friendship
4. Special friend status with Kodaka present tense
5. Turn Sena into Meat
....
Somewhere down the list is current (actual) situation with Kodaka

So in a way they've found an equilibrium of sorts..

Johnny
2012-04-18, 04:13
In short, Sena is full of herself, Yozora is stuck in the past, and Kodako is doing his best at playing the dense card...
