* ArtShiftedSequel / ArtEvolution: It seems that there has been some change in the art, mostly in the coloring.
* BrokenBase: Over which subtitle group is superior between Commie and Crunchyroll. While Commie is a speedsub group known for often inserting memes into their subtitles and having questionable translations, a lot of fans feel their subtitles for season 2 are actually superior to Crunchyroll's, due to CR's translations often being more literal and not as closely following the Light Novels' dialogue. In particular, their translations for the scene between Yukino and 8man in episode 7 and the "genuine"/"real thing" speech in episode 8 have recieved some flak.
* EarWorm: The opening theme, [[https://soundcloud.com/argaplek/nagi-yanagi-yukitoki-oregairu "Yukitoki"]], and the closing theme, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=om3yizBGGn0 "Hello Alone"]] have some nice tunes to them.
** The variations of the ending theme, [[https://soundcloud.com/kuristina/02-hello-alone-yui-ballade-nao "Hello Alone -Yui Ballade-"]] and [[https://soundcloud.com/sirreyga/hello-alone-band-arrange "Hello Alone -Band arrange-"]] are excellent as well.
* EscapistCharacter: Averted for the male protagonist so far in a harem sense. Somewhat unusual given the genre.
** He is still an escapist character in a Zen way: he gives no damn about the world and calmly lives his existence unhindered by and unhindering nobody. And he makes a strong point to others about his way of life.
** Though the escapism in that is still tampered by the realistic bouts of loneliness he faces due to being something of a social pariah by following his own philosophy (he even lampshades it once or twice). Bouts that come along as often as not (though perhaps it's more frequent in the anime).
* FanPreferredCouple: Most of the artists from {{Pixiv}} are fond of [[LesYay [=Yui/Yukino=]]].
** At [[{{Imageboards}} 4chan]], [[StudentTeacherRomance [=Hachiman/Shizuka=]]] is likely the most popular pairing.
* FanNickname: On [[{{Imageboards}} 4chan]], Hachiman Hikigaya is better known as the 8man, Hikki, Batman, (The) Dark Knight or some combination.
** [[MemeticMutation Which tends to result in Hachiman getting photoshopped to look like Batman in most screen shots he's in.]]
* HoYay: Hachiman and Saika.
** Also Hachiman and Hayato, both in-universe (thanks to [[YaoiFangirl Hina's]] wild imagination) and in real life (apparently, Pixiv artists liked the idea a bit too much).
* JerkassWoobie: Both Hachiman and Yukino. Despite their abrasive personalities and cynical outlook on the world, they're both fundamentally lonely people who had to deal with isolation, rejections and bullying.
* LesYay: Yukino and Yui.
* MisaimedFandom: Some fans see Hachiman as a rightfully cynical AntiHero who is almost always right. This ignores the fact that he is called out for his methods and over-generalizations of others.
* SleeperHit: Overlooked at first due to mediocre animation and labeling as harem romance comedy. Highly appraised later by virtue of great characters and thorough exploration of their psychology and motivations.
