Plot Synopsis

On they way to school, Hachiman and his sister, Komachi Hikigaya talk about the car accident Hachiman had been involved in on what was supposed to be his first day of high school. At school, Hachiman is once again reprimanded by Shizuka for his "Workplace Visit Survey" where he tries to justify becoming a "house-husband". At the Service Club meeting, Yui and Hachiman receive a mysterious chain text implicating 2F's Kakeru Tobe, Ōoka, and Yamato as delinquents.

At this time, Hayato enters the club room and requests that the Service Club help him stop the text from circulating, which they accept. They realize that the texts are connected to the upcoming three-person-per-group Workplace Visit and since Hayato's clique has four people, one of them is spreading the rumors to get someone knocked out of the group. Yukino has Yui and Hachiman gather information on the three suspects, but Yui fails to gather any information due to her inability to remain subtle.

Hachiman decides to spectate Hayato's clique, noticing that when Hayato is around, they are all lively. Hayato then approaches Hachiman and asks of his progress, just as Hachiman observes that the clique is now quiet and awkwardly checking their phones now that Hayato is no longer with them. Realizing the situation, Hachiman explains to everyone at the Service Club that he doesn't know who the culprit is, but explains that their behavior when Hayato isn't around suggests they are only acquaintances, with Hayato being their mutual friend, therefore they are literally competing for his attention. He solves the case by suggesting that Hayato have the three of them group and have a chance to get to know each other better, which seems to work. As thanks, Hayato groups with Hachiman along with Saika for the Workplace Visit.

Major events

Character Appearances



  • Hiratsuka Shizuka punches Hikigaya Hachiman in the stomach and says something about "Second Bullet..." and Hikigaya Hachiman saying about not wanting the "Last Bullet...". This is clearly a reference to the "Scryed" anime.
  • During Hikigaya's hospital flashback, he is reading a manga called Touki no Omote (or Porcelain Mask). It is a parody of a long-running manga called Glass Mask. The cover is a spoof of the first volume of Glass Mask.
