Hachiman Hikigaya is a cynic. He believes "youth" is a crock-a sucker's game, an illusion woven from failure and hypocrisy. Unsurprisingly, he's not the most popular guy. Meanwhile, there's Yukino Yukinoshita-brilliant, beautiful, and chillier than winter in Antarctica. Would you believe she's not exactly beloved by her classmates either? The unlikely pair gets forced into a club dedicated to helping solve their fellow students' problems. But will an ice queen and a screwup really be able to help anybody?
Hachiman Hikigaya may be in a club with two hot girls, but this isn't going to turn into a rom-com. He may have given out his number, but his phone will remain untexted. Besides, the only true cutie around here? Yeah, it's a guy. Hachiman the loser, Yukino the ice queen, and Yui the bimbo have to find some way to put the "service" back in "Service Club"--but so far they've scored zero points in the game of high school life.
Hachiman Hikigaya's travails in the Service Club continue! When his younger sister Komachi comes to the Service Club with a problem involving Hachiman's stoic, intimidating classmate Saki, he's faced with a challenge. How's he supposed to break through Saki's unflappable and frankly frightening demeanor? Is it possible that Hachiman's notorious cynicism is actually going to be good for something, for once?
In spite of his best efforts, Hachiman still finds himself helping out his fellow students as a member of the Service Club. When delusional fantasy lover and fellow reject Zaimokuza tries to establish a "Playing Club," how will Hachiman, Yui, and Yukino handle his antics?
A summer break without anyone around is the perfect scenario for loner Hachiman Hikigaya, but Hiratsuka-sensei knows just how to shatter his dreams. Instead of a quiet vacation, the members of the Service Club (as well as Hayama's circle of popular students) are helping out at a children's day camp. While elementary school is a distant memory for these teenagers, Hachiman ends up meeting a young kindred spirit--a loner named Rumi Tsurumi!
Hachiman Hikigaya is a cynic. "Youth" is a crock, he believes--a sucker's game, an illusion woven from failure and hypocrisy. But when he turns in an essay for a school assignment espousing this view, he's sentenced to work in the Service Club, an organization dedicated to helping students with problems in their lives! How will Hachiman the Cynic cope with a job that requires--gasp!--optimism?
As usual, Hachiman Hikigaya's warped personality prevents him from having any enjoyable moments of youth. The days all the seem the same until suddenly, an 'incident' occurs in class. This is a problem that no one who had any semblance of a normal high school life could solve, but if it's Hachiman, just maybe...
