YMMV: Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru

  • Ear Worm: The opening theme, "Yukitoki", and the closing theme, "Hello Alone" have some nice tunes to them.
  • Escapist Character: 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).
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Most of the artists from Pixiv are fond of Yui/Yukino.
  • Fan Nickname: On 4chan, Hachiman Hikigaya is better known as the 8man, Hikki, Batman, (The) Dark Knight or some combination.
  • Ho Yay: Hachiman and Saika.
    • Also Hachiman and Hayato, both in-universe (thanks to Hina's wild imagination) and in real life (apparently, Pixiv artists liked the idea a bit too much).
  • Jerkass Woobie: 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.
  • Les Yay: Yukino and Yui.
  • Misaimed Fandom: Some fans see Hachiman as a rightfully cynical Anti-Hero who is almost always right. This ignores the fact that he is called out for his methods and over-generalizations of others.
  • Sleeper Hit: 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.
