I think I saw a few people translate it already, but I figured I’d do my own version. Producer’s (not really sure what the reading for his name is) thoughts on how the story will wrap up in the anime; whether this is reflective of the story in the light novel is up for debate, however.
Q. This work depicts the wavering emotions of the protagonist and heroines wedged between the status quo and the development of love. In particular, Yuigahama Yui faces the dilemma of destroying the comfortable relationship in the Service Club should she decide to expose her feelings for Hachiman. Producer Ohama Shou, what is it that makes Yui so charming?
A. Yui’s love for Hachiman and her desire to cherish the Service Club’s relationship are her pure feelings and I feel that sweetness of hers is what makes her charming. In episode 13, she will take a single action, but where exactly this will take the “sweet Yui” due to those feelings is something you want to see.
Q. For the other heroine, Yukinoshita Yukino, her relationship with Hachiman is interesting as well. It’s clear that Yukino reacts sharply when she sees other girls approach Hachiman. But because she holds a special sympathy with Hachiman, that behavior clashes with her own expectations, leading to her disappointment. As a result, she derides herself for having expectations of Hachiman, a stranger to her.
A. I believe Yukino and Hachiman both had the mutual understanding that they were individuals who could stand on their own without the need to flock with others. They both empathized their value as individuals whereas the emotions of love were a separate matter. Starting from episode 11, the themes of love relationships and human relationships begin to intermingle.
Q. For Hachiman who tries to avoid love and for Yukino and Yui who have yet to do or grasp anything, will they obtain something important in the end?
A. The theme at the heart of the matter is what kind of relationship these three of the Service Club will form in the end. The “genuine thing” that Hachiman seeks for is no longer his own problem, and after moving Yukino and Yui’s heart, the both of them respectively face it as their own problem. And once they realize they are no longer able to maintain the status quo, they will give their own idea of “something like an answer.” The climax of the story will center on how the three of them will take that step forward.
Q. The finale will be something you can’t avoid feeling painful about, so look forward to it.
