In the Volume 7 chapter 2 of the light novel, he and Yamato accompanied Tobe and Hayato to the service club. When Tobe refused to state his request in front of Hachiman as he is zero reliability and there's nothing for him to do, he and Yamato giggle in agreement.Hayato, Yamato and he then left the service club a they only decided to accompany Tobe and had no intentions of discussing what to do. This part was completely ignored in the anime adaptation and manga adaptations.He and Yamato splitted from the grouping in times of their field trip to let the service club assist Tobe in his request. He played mahjong with his clique in their room and also proposed that the loser has to get chocolates from girls room but was reminded by Hayama the presence of P.E teacher in between floor which lead to the unopposed desicion of Tobe (loser) to buy them snacks and drinks. He also calmed Tobe down when he was tensed about the following day.
He accompanied his clique members to the spot where Tobe planned to confess to Hina and was greatly shocked when Hachiman confessed instead. Hachiman felt that Ooka and Yamato were hiding something as well. Instead of being there to support their friend, they just lend their help because they thought it was fun which Tobe himself also aware off. After Hina's rejection of Hachiman they console Tobe and dragged him along.

He defensively told Hayato that someone saw them together in times of winter break without saying who saw them or told him, but then Hayato agrees that it was just a rumour and made peace with him, much to his relief. It is likely that he unknowingly started the rumour as the whisperings of Hayato-Yukino relationship began after his question, as the rumor started to spread throughout Sobu High.He was training for the marathon along with Tobe, Yamato who tried to run a head of Tobe who slightly back downed.
At the end of the marathon he and Yamato was shown to cheering and clapping for the Hayato for winning the marathon and Hayato's speech regarding Yumiko and Iroha.He was later shown at the Hayato's victory party enjoying with his cliqueEpisode 12 of season 2 (adaptation of Volume 11), When Tobe spited out his desire for valentine treat, both Ooka & Yamato shot a glance over the girls but was shot down by apathetic look from Yumiko. He expressed his envy of Hayato is good in times of Valentine for recieving chocolate compared to others in their clique and also explained it to be a waste after hearing that Hayama was not going to accept any valentine chocolate.

He was shown to chat with them in free time and mentioned to go on outing with them.Hachiman feels that the Hayama clique especally boys appears to be close but he concludes that they are nothing but superficial.
