    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?

    When reputations are threatened, loners alone have no fear.

    Hachiman Hikigaya's life has changed little since being forced to join the Service Club. Sure, he now spends his time after school in the company of the icy Yukino Yukinoshita and bubbly airhead Yui Yuigahama, but his warped personality still ensures that he won't wring a moment's enjoyment from his insufferable school life. When someone starts trolling his class with hateful e-mails, though, and the Service Club is enlisted to help solve the case, Hachiman's "unique" perspective as an outsider might finally come in handy...or he could still just be a loser.

    Nothing ever changes. No friends, no girlfriends--nothing but a solitary life at school... So why is Hachiman so uncomfortable? Maybe it's the fact that their club room is one girl short. There's no way Yukino and Hachiman can solve the problems born from this chain of misunderstandings. The bittersweet time with Totsuka, preparing for battle with Zaimokuza, a secret side of Ms. Hiratsuka...and strip poker? Surrounded by characters sprinting headlong in the wrong direction, will the club ever return to normal?

    It's summer break, and Hachiman is continuing his leisurely life of solitude-until Miss Hiratsuka forces the Service Club back together to volunteer at a campground. For some reason, Hayama, Miura, and their crew of normies are there, too... Thus begins a compulsory, youthful season of fireworks, tests of courage, nighttime conversations, and bathhouse incidents, with no escape for Hachiman. Summer is indeed a minefield for the loner...

Not only that, but Totsuka has an invitation for him, as well as a request from a classmate--he even runs into Yukino's sister at the fireworks festival! Hachiman is determined not to get close to anyone or have any expectations, but even this stubborn loner can't ignore the changes occurring in his relationships with Yukino and Yui...

    Ah, culture festivals. The best way to survive such a troublesome chore is...don't answer when someone talks to you, and act obviously annoyed. Employing his loner skills to the fullest, Hachiman is ready and willing to run at the first sign of responsibility. Unfortunately, while he's busy skipping homeroom, he ends up being chosen for the culture festival committee...

    The class trip--an event rife with potential for love and trauma. The excitement builds as the big trip to Tokyo approaches--for most of the class. Hachiman's status has fallen since the cultural festival, but at least he didn't have far to fall.



    But then, before they leave, an unexpected visitor to the Service Club comes with a request for romantic advice that creates even more complications...
