Top 5 Anime Like Oregairu :

Top 5 Anime Like Oregairu :

anime like snafu oregairu

I have talked about how people have different phases in their anime watching journey before . Anyways, a phase, as I like to call it, is when you really get into a certain genre of anime and want to finish every anime of that sort because that in itself wasn't enough. 

anime like oregairu

Oregairu was the anime that got me into the "slice of life" genre of anime. Genre like comedy, romance, school, drama etc. revolve around slice of life and so I scoured the net to find all the best anime of these genre. 

Only a couple anime really did the job of helping me, let's say , satisfy the craving that oregairu created. And this list here, of anime similar to oregairu, is a product of that journey.  

Story- Now the story revolves around Hikigaya Hachiman. A high school student that no one likes. He likes his life that way though and doesn't like human interactions 

His chill life pretty much falls apart when his teacher makes him join a club with the school's mean and smart beauty. 

The club's job is to help people out and they help pretty much anyone they can . The problems themselves aren't that interesting or at least they weren't for me.

 The approach that Hachiman takes to solve things in addition to his philosophies will blow your mind!!

I guess that was a review of Oregairu for those of you that haven't watched. 

Also here are some questions answered about  Oregairu :

Why is it called Oregairu?

Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru . 

 Afaik chose this name instead of the fans coming up with their own. 

double entendre with "Ore ga iru" (I am here).

So without any ado, lets jump straight into the list of the top five anime like oregairu. 

Is Oregairu worth watching? 

Oregairu is an amazing show and I definitely enjoyed it. If does kinda kinda dramatic in the season and the pace becomes kinda slow but its a good watch nevertheless. So id say it is definitely worth watching. 

1. Classroom Of The Elite : 

anime like oregairu

The Japanese government establishes Tokyo Metropolitan Advanced Nurturing School which is a school with pretty much everything you need. 

The school is pretty much a hierarchy with different sections competing to be on the top. The administration is obviously at the very top followed by the student council.

 Phone stores, swimming pools, beach , fun parks and like I said everything . I don't know if one would consider this to be heaven or hell but its something that according to the anime happens in the near future. 

The story revolves around our protagonist Kiyotaka Ayanokōji ( I compared him to Hachiman and that is the primary reason why this anime is like Oregairu)   A quiet genius with a very different perspective who has been through a lot. Despite being smart, Ayanokōji along with Suzune Horikita (the cold beauty) end up somehow in the D section which is the inferior bunch of the school. 

Classroom of the elite is like Oregairu for a couple different reasons. First off, the 2 protagonist of both there anime are very similar to each other . ( Like scary similar).

Secondly, the setting of a school, clubs, tasks, conflict, and a lot of different things just give you a vibe very much like Oregairu. Anyways, if you liked Oregairu, I will literally guarantee that you will also like Oregairu. 

Will there be a season 2 of classroom of the elite?

The finale of the first season was almost three years ago and it is hard to believe that. The anime is based on a Japanese light novel series by Shōgo Kinugasa titled "Welcome to the Classroom of the Supreme Ability Doctrine."

The anime covers only the first four volumes so we can expect a season 2 of classroom of the elite. As of now, there aren't any exact dates as to when it will be releasing but the rumors so far have been that classroom of the elite season 2 will release around September 2020. But situations have changed as of now and the release date of season 2 may be shifted to 2021.   

So hopefully, classroom of the elite is not cancelled. 

Is classroom of the elite good?

It is without a doubt, one of my favorite anime. I definitely reckoned this anime to literally everyone. 

What is the Japanese name of Classroom of the elite?

The Japanese name of Classroom of the elite is ようこそ実力至上主義の教室へYōukoso Jitsuryoku Shijō Shugi no Kyōshitsu e

2. Hyouka:

anime like oregairu

 First off, for those of you that have watched Hyouka and didn't know; Hyouka is a 2001 Japanese Mystery noveland is the first volume of the classic literature club series. Anyways 5 addition volumes had been published as of 2016 so if you want more of Hyouka you can go check that out . 

We have another protagonist who treats his energy like the battery of his phone. and Is forced to join a club. Hotaro Oreki joins Kamiyama High School's Classic Literature Club to prevent it from being removed because of the lack of members, at the request of his sister. They solve a pretty big mystery, or at least that is way they put it to us. 

You will definitely enjoy the anime and love Oreki if you enjoyed Oregairu (Coincidence? I think not). See what I did there?

 You might, like I did, find Eru Chintada a bit annoying and the setting made a little darkish somehow but its something you will definitely enjoyed if you like Oregairu. 

It does not exactly have the romance aspect of Oregairu but it is a good watch nevertheless. The characters are great and the dialogue is engaging. 

This overal, results in Hyouka becoming an anime like Oregairu . 

Also hyouka means Ice cream in English . 

3. ReLIFE:

anime like oregairu

Well, first off, what is reLIFE about ?

27 year old Arata Kaizaki is pretty much a loser who jumps from one job to another after quitting his first company. His life changes though, when he meets Ryou Yoake who offers him a mysterious blue pill and invites him to be the part of a project by the ReLIFE Research Institute .

Subtract 10 now because Arata wakes up as a 17 year the next world and has to go to high school again only to find out that high school is a lot harder than he remembered. He flunks all his test on the first day and well messes up quite a lot. 

Now I don't have a specific thing to point out to that makes this anime similar to Oregairu but you will know after watching this anime that it is something that Oregairu lovers will enjoy. 

Maybe it is the school setting or maybe the humor in certain aspects but this anime definitely has Oregairu like vibes. 

Anyways if you want an anime like Oregairu quite desperately, I will assure you that ReLIFE will do the job superbly. It it better than Oregairu in certain aspects so definitely look forward to it. 

How many episodes are in reLIFE?


4. Kokoro Connect :

anime like oregairu

The story is about five students who suddenly switch bodies and are in the Student Cultural Research club. Taichi, Iori, Himeko, Yoshifumi and Yui are your regular high school kids with with some irregular things happening in their lives. 
This anime is a test of friendship between the 5 members because they are made to choose from difficult options that endangers their friendship by a man called "heartseed" . 
The story is very interesting and you will enjoy it if you enjoyed Oregairu. 

The anime isn't very much like Oregairu and I will be honest about that but it deserves to be on the list because of different elements that makes it enjoyable. 

This makes Kokoro connect and anime like Oregairu I guess. Don't go in expecting something very similar. The first 2 on the list are truly the ones very much like Oregairu. The rest are just anime that have similar components and we have just made an assumption that you will like these if you like Oregairu. 

Harem Bonus :

5. Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai (Haganai):

Kodaka Hasegawa is transferred in the St Chronica's Academy and because of his blond hair is mistaken for a delinquent. He comes across Yozora Mikazuki one day while she is talking to her imaginary friend. They both  realize that they are really lonely and want friends Yoroza decides to create a club for people like them . 
This anime, again isn't very much like oregairu but is just a harem bonus. I have seen some people that like oregairu because of the harem so this is for them. 

Anyways, that is all for this list. If you have other anime similar Oregairu in mind, feel free to let us know down in the comment below. 


  1. Rascal does not dream of bunny girl senpai and say I love you should be on this list
