Yet when it came down to it, Yukino still did all the work, which is very different from her usual modus operandi for the Service Club where she only teaches the client how to do things and generally stays hands off.

This isn't the only time Yukino is trying to compete with Haruno either - remember during the fireworks festival, Hachiman told Haruno that Yukino intended to pursue the same degree plan at the same kind of university as her.


I agree it's too soon to pin Haruno's true intentions, but there is more than enough evidence to show that Yukino is having issues being in Haruno's shadow.

Just started watching the show. Started with Episode 7, then moved onto 4, then 3, 5 and finally 8. Have to watch 1,2, 6 and 9 and 10 when it's out.

Anyone know how many episodes in the show?

I'm really liking Saika and Hayata. I wonder what Hayata meant in episode 8 when he said he doesn't think he and Hachiman wouldn't have been friends in grade school. Wonder what his history is.

Not quite: Haruno says she's doing a BS at a national university and then Yui says that Yukino wants to do that too. We only have Haruno's word as to what she's studying. And like Hachiman I find Haruno fishy, so I don't believe everything she's saying is the truth.

My feeling is that it's Haruno who has issues with Yukino, not the other way around. But we'll only find out when the author gives us more info.

While it's true you cannot trust everything she says... claiming she's doing a BS at national university when she isn't would be weird. I mean, why?

As expected of a "middle in the arc" episode, the episode proposes a lot, but solves little. Harunon made me rolf with her mode switching and Yukinon opening up a bit more was very welcomed.

Next week, the last episode (There is an ova after it, but it's a separate arc).

Nope, there's still one more episode which most likely will tell the story from the drama cd.

I still haven't seen this episode because I picked VVV for live streaming this week Going by Misaofan reaction it seem that it's going to be good episode for in-between arc episode standard?

Guess now I just need to wait for subs.

This particular just got to me as the president is having trouble finding her words! Poor girl. He is such a bully.

My heart skipped a beat when Yukino waved to Hachiman. Hnnnng.

Hachiman truly brings out the best in her.

While Shizuka is best girl here, Yukino is officialy most cute one! But everone else were cute too, it was episode full of cuteness.

Oh and Hayato NTRed Hikki, it has to suck to be Hikki x Saika shiper

And Yukino did what she should do from begenning, sidelined Sakami and make everything running smoothly without alowing her disturb work (someone should do that to my boss as well)

Pretty weird to see only Yukino and Harunon laughed during that meeting. If I was there I'd undoubtedly starts a laughing fit because of how true his remark is.

It took me a couple tries to figure out what exactly Yuigahama was talking about when she was talking about her alone time with Yukinon. They've been putting in all these mixed signals with Yuigahama, and I very much got the wrong impression.

The committee meeting was pretty hilarious. Hikki calling out the laziness was just such a pleasure to watch. It was great to see that Yukinon enjoyed it as much as I did though. Now that we're getting into the wrap-up stages having Yukinon open up to Hikki now as well is a refreshing change. Especially with it being mutual. This could be the beginning of a surprisingly enjoyable ending, and so I look forward to it.

I lost it when Yukinoshita suppressed her laugh.

Too bad there're only two eps left.

All it took to shut up Sagami was one little slogan from Hikki. Good job man!

Ending to the episode was nice too with Hikki getting the clue that Yui wants to go on a date with him

I felt like the bigger surprise was that he knew, and he was either letting it happen or just doing a really, really poor job of stopping it.

Although that kind of bothered me. It's not as if Yuigahama hasn't been trying constantly for half the series, with him opposing her at every turn. Suddenly as the three of them are better friends now than ever he's merely reluctant to allow it to happen? I'm fine with him changing his tune slightly, but it's a bit sudden...

<_< Plus, I still think Hikki would be better off with Yukino anyhow.

Hachiman as sharp as usual.
And i can still tell that Hachiman won't end up with either Yukino or Yui.
He gets dragged into problems by both of them.

With his mind, it is a pity that he doesn't have any motivation start any big project concerning whatever.

Guess this episode was OK, nothing really stood out, except for the scenes with Sagami and especially the scene at the end.
Expecting ep12 to make a huge impact, don't let me down!

The best part of this ep is when Hachiman totally KO-ed Sagami in one simple punch (sad that his idea got rejected), and Yukino's laughter afterwards just made it even better. I was laughing the entire scene, truly magnificent.

And FINALLY, Yui finally took one big move ahead and shot Hachiman right on the face with him not being able to dodge anymore, and this is what i've been waiting all this time. After all, this is supposedly romcom, no?
