|April 5, 2013|||
|Pragmatic loner Hachiman Hikigaya writes an essay describing his view on the lives of contemporary teenagers which displeases his language teacher, Shizuka Hiratsuka. As punishment, she forces Hachiman to join the Soubu High School Service Club and requests that its sole member—Yukino Yukinoshita—try to remedy his broken social skills. This immediately results in a clash between both students and Shizuka proposes that they contest their ideals by helping people sent to the club. The next day, Hachiman learns that Yukino was paradoxically made an outcast because of her beauty and relates to her differential way of thinking. Afterwards, Yui Yuigahama requests that the Service Club help her bake cookies for a friend and Yukino fails teaching her the basics of cooking. Hachiman tries an alternative approach and uses psychology to get Yui to realize that the sheer act of doing something for another person means more than how the act turns out. The next week, Yukino and Hachiman discuss Yui's request with respect to the ultimate goal of personal improvement, versus the rewards of working towards said improvement despite risking failure in doing so. Afterwards, Yui shows up at the club and thanks both Hachiman and Yukino with homemade cookies she made herself.|

Yukino then shows up and demands an explanation for Yui's tardiness but ends up forgiving her. However Yumiko makes an outburst when Yui focuses her attention on Yukino, prompting the latter to call Yumiko out on her self-centeredness. The tense atmosphere then drives the other students out and Yui uses the opportunity to explain that meeting Hachiman and Yukino helped her realize that she can be her own person and not force herself to do what others want from her, which Yumiko accepts. The following afternoon, a delusional teen named Yoshiteru Zaimokuza shows up at the Service Club. After the group beats around the bush to dissect his ostentatious personality, Yoshiteru asks that they help review a light novel he wrote. Hachiman and Yukino then stay up all night reading his novel and present their critiques the next day which turn out less than positive. Despite the Service Club's brutal honesty, Yoshiteru sincerely accepts their words and promises to have them review his next literary work.|

While the group practices one lunch time, Yumiko and her group demand to use the tennis court and ignore the fact that Saika has permission to use it. However Hayato Hayama proposes that they have a doubles match with the winner gaining access to the court. The match then begins with Hachiman & Yui vs. Hayato & Yumiko, until Yui sprains her ankle and switches with Yukino. After a bit of pregame banter with Yumiko, Yukino dominates the match until her stamina runs out and entrusts the game to Hachiman.

Later the Service Club receive a mysterious shared text message. Hayato then requests that the Service Club put a stop to the message which paints his clique members Kakeru, Yamato and Oka as delinquents. The Service Club then links the message to the field-trip and deduce that one of the three plans to eliminate another so they can form a group with Hayato. Hachiman and Yui then take turns gathering information, however Yui ends up failing miserably due to her inability to remain subtle. Afterwards, Hachiman begins observing Hayato's clique until Saika interrupts him. However he solves the mystery when Hayato joins their conversation.

Saki then meets with the group the following morning and they learn that she had been saving up for college. However Komachi points out that she should not have made Taishi worry and Hachiman proposes that she apply for a scholarship instead.

|Yui stops coming to the Service Club meetings and seems to drop out altogether following her previous encounter with Hachiman and Shizuka tasks them in recruiting a new third member.

The pair eventually settle on purchasing some trendy accessories for Yui until they run into Yukino's older sister—Haruno Yukinoshita—who playfully teases them with her transparent persona. Much to their surprise, Yui also runs into the pair and Yukino invites her to the next Service Club meeting. At the next meeting, Yukino explains to Yui that they intended to celebrate her birthday and thank her for all the things she did for the club. Hachiman also uses the opportunity to clear the air with Yui and explains that she does not owe him anything and hence, should not pity him. Yui argues that she never thought of herself as pitying him but the complexity of the situation leaves her at a loss for words. However, Yukino helps repair the rift between them by sincerely explaining they should drop their current situation and begin a new path, which they decide to take.|
|7||"Regardless, Not Getting a Break over Summer Break is Wrong"|
"Tomoare, Natsuyasuminanoni Yasumenai no wa Nanikaokashī." (ともあれ、夏休みなのに休めないのは何かおかしい。)
|May 17, 2013|||
|Hachiman tries his best to relax during Summer break and ignores the backlog of messages from Shizuka concerning the Service Club activities. Shizuka eventually manages to lure Hachiman out and takes the Service Club and other Soubu High students to a prefectural park in Chiba to oversee an elementary school Summer camp for a few days. During the orienteering event, Hachiman and Yukino bear witness to the deliberate shunning of the young Rumi Tsurumi by her peers, and the many failed attempts by Hayato to remedy the situation. Rumi senses a similar aura from Hachiman and Yukino and confides her problem to them, with Yukino adding that it would only snowball once she gets into middle school with the same people. The Soubu group later try to come up with ways to help Rumi that evening. However, tensions flare when Yukino shoots down an idea by Yumiko based on her general lack of experience in interactions with people like Rumi. Unable to sleep that night, Hachiman finds Yukino in the woods, and she explains her desire to help Rumi as she sees a reflection of Yui in her, and also a bit of the history that exists between herself and Hayato before going to bed. Unable to sleep as well, Rumi sits by a stream under the starlight.|
|8||"One Day, They Shall Learn the Truth"|
"Izure Karera Kanojora wa Shinjitsu o Shiru." (いずれ彼ら彼女らは真実を知る。)
|May 24, 2013|||
|The Summer camp continues and Shizuka asks the Soubu group to prepare a 'test of courage' and bonfire event for the evening. After some preparations, the Soubu girls relax at a nearby river and Rumi joins Hachiman on the bank where he outlines the waning probability of holding on to elementary school ties as one grows older. However Rumi explains that she had already given up on making friends based on reciprocating her current treatment to her peers in the past. In order to assist Rumi, Hachiman proposes that the Soubu group create a source of conflict within the peer group that shuns Rumi. This would reveal their true self-allegiance and ultimately shatter the ties between them, thus moving the focus away from Rumi. The plan then seems to work when they implement it during the 'test of courage', until Rumi saves the girls in a dramatic turn of events. Afterwards during the bonfire event, the Soubu group notes that Hachiman's unorthodox plan had set the stage for the girls to split apart after betraying each other and hence slightly improve Rumi's situation. The camp then ends the next day and when Haruno comes to pick Yukino up, Yui and Hachiman recognise the Yukinoshita limousine as the one that struck Hachiman in the accident.|

|Yui invites Hachiman and Komachi to the annual summer fireworks festival as thanks for taking care of her dog but Komachi backs out of the offer to give Hachiman and Yui a chance to go together. On the day of the festival, Hachiman and Yui try to compensate for the awkwardness of going out together for the first time by shopping around for some items for Komachi. The fireworks soon begin and the pair run into Haruno while looking for a place to watch the spectacle. Haruno uses the opportunity to explain a little of the complicated relationship between herself and Yukino and laments that Yukino has difficulty in forming meaningful relationships with people. At the end of the festival, Haruno mistakenly refers to Yukino's involvement in the accident but Hachiman brushes it off as water under the bridge. Afterwards, Hachiman takes Yui home and she explains that she would rather Hachiman, Yukino and herself not keep their feelings bottled away and further laments that she would have befriended Hachiman even without the accident, which he rejects based on his own causal reasoning. However as school resumes the following week, Hachiman begins hating himself for believing that Yukino was incapable of lying since she had opted to conceal her involvement in the accident from him.|
|10||"While They Remain As Distant As They Were, The Festival Shall Soon Encircle Us"|
"Izentoshite Karera no Kyori wa Kawarazu ni, Matsuri wa Mōsugu Kānibaru." (依然として彼らの距離は変わらずに、祭りはもうすぐカーニバる。)
|June 7, 2013|||
|Shizuka volunteers Hachiman as the male representative of 2F for the cultural festival committee and Hayama later nominates Minami Sagami as the female representative, who further volunteers to be the committee chair in an attempt to further her self growth. Afterwards, Minami requests that Yukino assist her with the chairing responsibilities as vice-president. Much to everyone's surprise, Yukino excels at managing the festival responsibilities far more effectively than Minami. In the meantime, Hina Ebina takes charge of a stage production and Haruno tries to apply for a musical performance. Minami then suggests that the committee help enjoy preparing for the festival, with Yukino arguing that the logistical work takes priority. However more than half of the committee take Minami's advice and leave the remaining members in an up-hill battle with the growing paperwork. The next day, Yukino efficiently takes on most of the work but when Hayato criticises her for it, Hachiman moves the focus away from Yukino by blaming the deserting members. Afterwards, Minami passes most of her responsibilities to Yukino before going back to helping the other classes around the school. Overwhelmed with paperwork, Yukino takes most of it home and fails to show up at school the following day.|
|11||"And So, the Curtain on Each's Stage Rises, and The Festival Grows to a Feast on Us"|

|June 14, 2013|||
|Hachiman and Yui visit Yukino and find that she had worked herself to exhaustion by taking on most of the festival work. Yui scolds her for not relying on them more and Hachiman reinforces her argument by explaining that in an ideal world people rely on each other, but even then he doesn't know if it would be the right course of action. The next day, the festival committee attempt to brainstorm festival slogans which all indicate a sense of comradery. Hachiman cleverly proposes a slogan by using the Kanji for "People" (人 Hito) to highlight the unfair division of labor which Minami had introduced into the committee. This stunt grants Hachiman the contempt of the rest of the committee and they come out in droves the next day to falsify his words. The Soubu High School Cultural Festival begins some time later and Minami fumbles her opening speech due to stage fright. Despite this, the rest of the festival turns out to be a huge hit, especially Hina's yaoi stage production. Hachiman later takes a break and Yui joins him for lunch and explains that she had decided to wait for Yukino to open up to her and will also actively try to strengthen her bond with Hachiman. Elsewhere, Minami locks herself in the bathroom after being riddled with embarrassment.|

|Soubu High's Cultural Festival continues and Hachiman is stuck carrying out his duty as a committee member by documenting the day's events on film. Komachi shows up and is surprised to find her brother actually taking a bit of responsibility. As the festival enters its last stages, Haruno entertains the audience with a full orchestra performance. Soon enough, as the closing ceremony approaches, Meguri reports that Minami is missing in action. Since she is needed to deliver the closing speech, the group decides to stall for time while Hachiman searches the campus for her. Hachiman eventually finds Minami atop the laboratory roof and realizes she is sulking because Yukino stole the spotlight away from her, despite asking for her help. Hayato and Minami's clique show up to get her, although she refuses to budge. Seeing no other alternative, Hachiman craftily uses reverse psychology combined with Minami's true social reality to guilt her into accepting her duty; using a tone which enrages Hayato. Afterwards, the festival ends as Yui, Yukino, Haruno and Shizuka give their extra musical performance followed by Minami's closing speech. Everyone shows mixed reactions on Hachiman's course of action but Shizuka compliments him for always finding ways to rescue people from their problems, but laments that it breaks her heart since he always sacrifices himself to do so. That evening, at the Service Club room, Hachiman and Yukino discuss how far they've come to know each other, with Yukino hinting that they've become friends. Yui eventually shows up at the club to invite them for an after party hosted by Hayato to celebrate the festival's success. Hachiman ends by pondering that while there aren't any second chances in life, his and Yukino's ideals on society may continue to be seen as deviances.|

The Service Club agree and Meguri has them brainstorm event ideas, all of which are shot down by Shizuka on account of the social sensitivity attached to them. Hachiman decides to enlist the creativity of Yoshiteru and Hina and they soon progress with the preparations. When the festival begins, the white team surges ahead of the red team but the tables turn when Yukino and the red team girls manage to win their historically-based event.

Sometime later, the Service Club discuss Hachiman's stunt which caused the disqualification of the red team. However they resolve to try their best in the next athletics festival.|

|One morning, Hachiman ponders on the true nature of marriage and comes to the conclusion that people inevitably deceive themselves into thinking it makes them happy. Shizuka later tasks the Service Club with writing articles for submission to a local municipal magazine, which detail how contemporary teenagers view the institution of marriage. The Service Club accept the request and after brainstorming about research ideas, they decide to draft some surveys and take a sample from the persons remaining in the school. However the results only further emphasize the inexperience of their peers and Yukino decides to enlist Komachi for assistance after deducing that taking care of Hachiman would be the same as a marriage. Komachi arrives and suggests that they refocus the research on the traits of a good housewife and then has Yukino, Yui, Shizuka and herself draw information from various contests, including displays of cooking skills, reactions to hypothetical scenarios and a bridal dress contest. Finally, the Service Club takes their findings home and despite lagging behind Yui and Yukino with the workload, Hachiman writes that while people may not be able to prepare for the hardships of marriage—everyone has a right to wish for happiness.|
