First Look: Oregairu Season 3<span class="wtr-time-wrap block after-title"><span class="wtr-time-number">1</span> min read</span>

My favorite dysfunctional group is back

How long has it been? I don’t even remember at this point but it feels as if it was ages ago when we last saw Hikigaya and the girls from Oregairu. Finally, we get to continue where we left off from the second season.

The premiere episode of Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Kan was exactly what it was supposed to be. There is no reason for me to spoil anything, so go ahead and watch it. In case you are unfamiliar with Oregairu and you are pondering whether to catch up to the rest of us, then by all means you should. There are plenty of reasons as to why so many of us have been anxiously waiting for its continuation. Some might say that it’s the art, others the comedy, others the romance. The obvious answer is all of the above but perhaps what really sets this anime apart are its characters. To put it simply, I’ve missed them. I’ve missed their interactions, their problems, their development. Come on. How can you not miss Hachiman and his world views?

Truth be told, I have not read the source material so I am in the dark as far as how the story will unfold from this point. However, I am glad that I didn’t give in to the temptation of reading ahead of the anime and instead hoped for this 3rd season to be produced. No matter what the ending might be, I still want to see it through. Surely, I am not alone in saying that I am happy to be watching Oregairu again.

Score

8/10★
