I suspect that whoever decided to use the "SNAFU" translation for the title was going for the original military acronym "Situation Normal, All Fucked Up", rather than the contemporary non-military meaning of "something that has gone wrong". Why? Well, the title in Japanese is "yahari... machigatteru", which means "...wrong, as one would expect". If that ...

I haven't been able to find an official screenshot showing this, but fan art of Yui seems to be consistent in showing the cords being part of an undershirt with a saw-cut edge:

My own interpretation is actually different from any of the ones you've listed. We discover over the last few episodes of Season 2 that Yukinoshita has a lot of trouble even identifying what it is that she personally wants. Where Hikigaya has to have an external reason to help people but is otherwise incredibly self-sufficient, Yukinoshita needs an external ...

So, this is a difficult question to answer because for the most part, the anime covered the important points. As far as I know, season 1 of the anime covered it sufficiently and left out trivial things. They did switched out studios for season 2, however. Season 1 was done by Brain Base and season 2 was done by Studio Feel. With that said, there are a lot ...

Angel Beats! also did something similar, except that the numbers, prefixed by the character 'c', appear in the previews for next episode. These are the cut numbers found in storyboards, or (絵)コンテ (e konte, from the English word continuity) in Japanese. According to Anime Production – Detailed Guide to How Anime is Made and the Talent Behind it!, Cuts ...

Well, Hayama has the good looks, friends and stuff, but most of his "friends" would just stop being friends if Hayama isn't "Hayama" anymore; Most of his "friends" would just abandon him, if he were to be attacked by a bear somewhere in a forest. He realizes this after trying to see from Hachiman's point of view, Hachiman's cynical and "real" outlook on '...

Here's the official picture from the light novel itself, it's exactly like the pictures from Toshinou.

Here, the word for wrong - "machigatteiru" - is being changed into "snafu," which, according to the dictionary is "a badly confused or muddled situation" When translating literally, we could just use "wrong" (as in the subtitle you mention). However, an important thing to note about anime is that translations are almost never exact. Whether it's just the ...

No, Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Zoku is simply the second season of the show Oregairu, and not a remake of the first. While both are adapted from the original manga, the current two seasons of the anime are chronologically ordered, following directly on from one another. This is clear after comparing the episode synopses of both ...

The first season covers the first 6 volumes, and the second season will adapt volumes 7-11. Source: https://kyakka.wordpress.com/2015/06/12/oregairu-zoku-episode-12-and-13-synopses/

Gagaga Bunko, the publisher of Oregairu light novel made a tweet on 28 Sept 2017 (Japanese): 【俺ガイル12】ちなみに、先日のイベントのステージにサプライズ出演された渡航先生より「俺ガイル12巻は終章の上、中、下巻の上巻に当たる」「中、下巻にあたる13巻と14巻は同時くらいに発売」との発表があり、現在制作進行です!!お楽しみに!!!!!(☆) To put it simply, volume 12 is the 1st part of the 3-part final chapter, and volume 13 & 14 ―the 2nd and 3rd part― will be published ...

If you haven't noticed, your question is actually very difficult. Firstly, because OreGairu is probably the most psychologically intelligent anime ever in my view. But secondly, because there are actually so many aspects which everyone misses unless they watch and rewatch and understand symbolism that any answer is never completely correct. Haruno is not ...

The reason why Hayato feels inferior toward Hachiman lied in light novel volume 4, "Y". While they are helping Rumi, he used this situation to compete with Hachiman because he thought Hachiman's thought was what made "that person" or "Y" interested in him. So he competed with Hachiman secretly to prove Hachiman's belief is not good enough for that person to ...

Maybe it's because of illegal parking at the bridge. If i remember it correctly, Hiratsuka sensei brought Hikigaya there to talk about the service club, i think it's between ep. 6-8, (because Hikigaya and Yukino had an argument/ misunderstanding) there was a sign that says parking is not allowed at the bridge.

Yes and no. Some important scenes was modified or even cut, in order to make people interpret diffently, or to make watchers who want to know the full story, decide to buy light novel. I think like this because I noticed that it might be that certain person planned brilliantly in advance to modify scenes in anime to increase influence of watchers to look for ...

To put it briefly, he just wants them to have an open and honest relationship, hence genuine. The longer version : Hachiman is basically fed up with the facades that happens in Service Club to maintain their "friendship" that became more fragile in the time since Tobe's confession request, Iroha's election, and Christmas event. After Tobe's request, the ...

I don't really remember how the anime showed it, but in the light novel Hachiman and Zaimokuza both split up the Twitter accounts between them. Then the night before the day that Hachiman shows the printouts to Irohasu, he had actually called Zaimokuza to change the accounts' display name and images to "Isshiki Iroha Grassroots Account". Understandably ...

Hikigaya asked for a girl's phone number in middle school, as mentioned in his flashback at 6:30 - 7:00 in episode 4. The number probably belongs to her, though he left her anonymous in his story in the anime (I haven't read the early volumes of the LN's). There's no Hanazawa Hanako in Volumes 7-10. For now, she remains in the back-burner of possible ...

According to Japanese Wikipedia, season 1 covers volume 1-6 + 6.5 + 7.5 and season 2 covers 7-11 + 10.5. Note that the light novel has already passed over volume 12. Season 1 Episode 1-3: Volume 1 Episode 4-5: Volume 2 Episode 6: Volume 3 Episode 7-8: Volume 4 Episode 9-10: Volume 5 Episode 11-12: Volume 6 Episode 13 (extra): Volume 6....
