well i wasnt refering to baka test, its just to me, a few slaptstick comedy series have actually been funny to me, but yeah baka test wasnt one of those to me, but to tell the truth the reason
i like haganai is probably the reason i liked lucky star, and that is that i can actually relate to characters and situations.

@kuroishinigami

Silver Link may have shot themselves in the proverbial foot by jumping around the timeline, but they have very impressive visual cues and punchline, plus the overall feel was still there- The word 'sucked' might be a tad bit harsh.

As for Haganai, I'm fully expecting a repeat of OreImo's adaptation- Whether that's a good thing or not depends on the individual. For sure it's fanbase is big enough that it'll never bomb no matter what happens or how bad, but it's not a solid guarantee 20k adaptation either.

One more thing, rather than Baka-Test, wouldn't people be comparing Haganai's comedy to Haruhi's? I mean, you know how superficial they can get with these kinds of thing... What with a girl making her own club and all...

Well, i might be too harsh about baka to test anime season 1 due to my overexpectation. Sorry about that. I just feel they didn't convey the stupid comraderie theme well enough during season 1.

Back on haganai, like I said, I feel that the skits are too short to make me feel immersed when reading it. It's good as a short story read that I read sparingly now and then, but it's not good enough to draw me in to read it in 1 go. That, and the lack of overarching theme in a volume. I feel like it might be better in a 4-koma manga format rather than a conttinuous volume. It might be just my preference though.

i think you can say anything that happens in haganai, haruhi did it, but haruhi has a more serious tone and a more myterious atmosphere, specially the LN, since the anime toned down some things (ex. not drinking in the island, the scene where kyon raises his hand to haruhi is less intense).

Thank you kuroishinigami for the summary, really appreciate it


Although I didn't mind if the author still go nowhere on the main story as long as he can keep it interesting with the jokes, I prefer the progress with more character development and insight drama like kuroishinigami wrote. Based on that summary I must say it really gets interesting with Yozora-Sena position change, and Kodaka, Rika, and Kobato's insight.

And so what happen with Maria after she know Kobato is popular and felt left alone? Kobato came to her to cheer her or the author just left it like that for now?

I didn't know there was a thread for Haganai

And more importantly, Yozora reminds me of myself at my best/worst

I still adamantly dislike Yozora, and no amount of 180 by the author is going to change that. I'm not one of the ones mindlessly chanting 'meat' either so don't group me with them. This story will end up like most where the worst possible choice ends up being picked as the winner, le sigh.

I was talking about the anime sales. It didn't do so hot despite the light novel being a well seller apparently. The sales were average at best. Anyways here hoping Boku wa Tomodachi doesn't turn out like that series turned out.

Anyone can give spoiler/summary of Kobato's birthday chapter on vol 6? Why Maria didn't appear on Kobato's birthday party, though it seems Kate and Maria came to Hasegawa house and Maria gave Kobato a birthday present?
Got really interested after download and saw the illustrations for volume 6 and 7

Spoiler for :
Going to answer this here. The reason Kodaka dress weirdly is because that kind of clothing is popular at his last school. When he moved to the current school, he try to keep that casual way of wearing his clothes to give more casual impression and makes friend easier, but everyone in the class thought that his way of clothing is a way to show his authority as a yankee.

Absolutely going the right direction. The characters started out as cookie cutter 'mesh of fetishes' types but now they are getting more depth. This seems to be a lot more real. As long as there's plenty of comedy to lighten up every now and then, though Yozora's usual antics is necessary in this area, Kodaka's just not up to it in comedy stakes. It just shows judging what a character is like, based on the initial streotype then start pigeon holing character's actions based on this perception, is not necessarily the right approach.

As far as I heard, Hirasaka Yomi seems to like to troll fans with his series endings.

His stories always made unexpected turns and twists
That's the fun of reading his work

How would I know? Never read any of his previous series.

Well, not everybody likes twists, some people is afraid since trainwreck series like Code Geass.

indeed.
so the sales of his previous novel are disastrous
there were rumors that most of them were cancelled by the publisher (as zeniselv stated)
This makes everyone wonder Haganai's success

It is his second novel, Sora ni usagi ga no borukoro (ソラにウサギがのぼるころ)
quite a crazy work of him
and it was cancelled because the illustrator was passed away (though I think this is an excuse)
Also,
ホーンテッド! (Haunted, his first novel, a bit rough but there is some interesting idea)
finished in a mess so maybe you can called it cancelled, 4 vol
ねくろま。(Nekuroma, his third novel, start to learn how to write "for" the readers)
finished with proper (but rushed) ending, 6 vol and 1 omake
ラノベ部。(Lightnovel club, the predecessor of haganai with normal but boring plot)
finished, 3 vol, maybe cancelled
and then Haganai
