About My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU
Hachiman Hikigaya is an emotionless high school student. He is better known for being narcissistic and somewhat nihilistic. He claims joyful youth to be a tragic comedy and everyone who thinks the opposite is lying to themselves.
He once wrote an essay to mock the notion of modern-day relationships. Due to which, his teacher forces him to take part in the Volunteer Service Club. The club's mission is to help students, who lack proper resources and motivation to achieve their goals.
Now Hachiman has to work in a position that’s completely irrelevant to his personality. Along with Yukino Yukinoshita, the beautiful ice queen, Hachimna is now on the front line in dealing with other students’ problems. A place he couldn’t imagine even in his worst nightmare.
Yukino helps Hachiman to think differently and use his wits to solve the problems on-the-spot. But can the club influence his rotten views about society or will he use the position to his own advantage?
The anime is quite fun-loving and thrilling. If you liked it, then here I present to you five adorable anime like “My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU”.
