Shizuka forcing Hachiman to join the club.

Shizuka had an idea, and without telling him what it was, she brought Hachiman to the service club. He walked in and stared at Yukino. Yukino insults him and Hachiman thinks about what he knows about her. While lost in thought, Shizuka mentions that he'll be joining the club. Hachiman unintentionally agrees. He immediately questions why he should join the club afterwards. Before Hachiman could speak further, Shizuka left no room for Hachiman to debate about the decision. Yukino is against the idea. She and Shizuka debate while Hachiman interjects a couple of times. It ends with Yukino submitting to Shizuka because she's a teacher.

Shizuka proposing a challenge for both Hachiman and Yukino.

Shizuka leaves the clubroom.Hachiman recalled a rejected confession of the past. He reasons that in order to avoid that pain again, he just has to be hated. He tried to intimidate Yukino by growling but he ends up being intimidated by Yukino's glare. Hachiman asked for the purpose of the club. She proposed that they play a guessing game. Hachiman can't guess correctly. She told him the answer with a condescending attitude. He countered her argument using his grades and apparently pretty good looks as a basis. Yukino rebuked his statements.


The argument continued until Shizuka re-enters the classroom. Shortly after, They began another argument about change. Hachiman stopped when he was intimidated by Yukino's anger at his belief. Shizuka proposed a "battle" in which they could put their different beliefs to the test. She says the reward is to get the loser to do whatever the winner wants. Hachiman seemed to be thinking of lewd things so Yukino mocked him.  Shizuka persuaded Yukino to join the "battle" without Hachiman's say.[1]


Officialy the first request is by Shizuka of fixing the rotten personality of Hachiman which still hasn't seen its end.

3.Also, why is the heroine stripping here? the narration is too long, there are so many convoluted kanji, so it’s just really hard to read. Also, please refrain from trying to make people read an unfinished story. Before we even talk about literary style, maybe you should go and get some common sense"

She carried a packed bag to Chiba station where the hidden plot of Shizuka, Yukino, Yui, Komachi to bring Hachiman for summer club activity is revealed. Saika also joined the group to Chiba village where the service club is appointed to assist the elementary school students with their summer camp activities. Hayama's clique with the exception of Ooka and Yamato also joined the service club activity for various reasons.

In the camp they saw a group of four girls with another following them at a distance of two steps. In the scavenger hunt, Hayato helped the group and talked to Rumi and brought her to the centre of the group. The atmosphere in the group became intense with difficulty which is noted by both Yukino and Hachiman. In making curry session, Rumi was shown to be working alone.when Hayama asked Rumi, if she likes curry she gives a vague answer that she is not interested in curry after peeking at her peers. Hachiman explains to himself that ostracized person should not be talked to in public, as the bullies will say that the target was way over their head if she answered properly or they will say that she is way to rude, if the target answers negatively.

2355
Hayato tried to resolve the situation through talking to her in front of her classmates, with hope of making her popular which instead attracted more hateful and jealous attention towards her.

They talk about making friends but Rumi dismisses it by saying she'll just wait until middle school to make friends since people from other areas would be there. But Yukino explains the flaws in her wish, that Rumi is now "negative" and this brand would be carried to her middle school .Rumi's past would be treated as an in-joke and in the end she'll become a conversation topic, who'll forge friendship with her misery and this will follow her to high school.

Rumi explained her misery that she was going through, the person who became her friend turned into a bully the next day. Her secrets became a conversational topic and joke for others, she continues by saying that a person who talked to her a lot was bullied before and lament that she didn't do any thing wrong to deserve this. According to Hachiman, they didn't need a reason, they just want to have fun at the expense of others.

Cx
The following night the group sorted out plans in making things better for Rumi only results in conflict between themself.

The next day she finds Hachiman and gang at the river bank and joins in, after a while she states that everyone left her behind after finishing breakfast .She asks Hachiman, if he had friends back when he was in grade school,to which he replies negatively and says that goes for most people. Even so, Rumi clutches her camera and says that it's not an acceptable explanation for her mum,who bought the camera for Rumi so that she can make friends during the summer vacation. Rumi say that she doesn't want to be friends with them anymore, but feels pathetic being left-out. Hachiman hinted his plan to her before leaving.

Hachiman explains to the company that the only way out is to destroy the trust between her peers, through having Hayato and Kakeru acting as bullies threatening Rumi's group-mates during test of courage event and exposing their selfish nature to each other, thus preventing further organized acts of teasing on Rumi. Thus Hachiman earns a bad reputation from his school mates, however Hayama convince every one to go along with Hachiman's the plan and bet that Rumi's group will deal with it together.

Hayama and the gang didn't wear any monster costume to make Rumi's group to relax, which they falls for. Afterwards, Hayama's group started bullying them.

During the precise moment of threatening her peers, Rumi saves them by using her digital camera's flash to blind Hayama's group at the dark forest and escaped with her peers. Hachiman was impressed by her action and hoped for a better future. At the campfire the kids of Rumi's group still hasn't recovered from the shock and keeps looking at Rumi, while Rumi keeps peeking at Hachiman's direction, after that she averts her gaze and never even looked at him again
