Hachiman Hikigaya is the main protagonist of Wataru Watari's light novel series My Youth Romantic Comedy is Wrong, As I Expected, also known by its shorthand name Oregairu.

8man is the most successful male contestant in the International Saimoe League contest. He has won four pendants, the most out of any male player at the time, as well as having the honor of winning the first ever pendant. Hikki also possesses one of the best playoff performances in ISML Male history, securing the first seed in the playoffs for three years straight. In that span of time, he finished runner-up twice in 2016 and 2017 before finally winning the championship in 2018. He then followed it up with another Tournament of Champions win in 2019.

Hachiman is the second ISML champion (after Kanade) to achieve a perfect season, which he did in 2018 by winning all matches (including the playoffs) without a single draw or defeat. His playoff run in that year set multiple records, but the most notable is his thrashing of Archer in the final, where he set the record for the most lopsided ISML finals match in terms of vote difference, with 19,866 votes.

However, the loner student has only seen moderate success in other anime character contests. In his sole appearance in Bilibili Moe 2015, he narrowly reached the round of 32 by squeaking past Sora in his group, before running out of motivation to win against Umetarou Nozaki.

On the other hand, Hachiman is known in r/anime as an edgy protagonist whose personality and philosophy makes him a very appealing (and controversial) character among r/anime users. He performs better in the Best Character Contests, reaching the quarter-finals in two consecutive editions, losing to Edward Elric both times. Other than that, many of his other editions end with him perennially stuck in the Round of 32 with the exception of three Best Guy contests, where he ends up going out on the round of 64 instead.


ISML Profile Flavor TextEdit

"If someone is trying to calm you down, they are not telling the truth. If there is a reason anyone is smiling, it is to cover a lie. If a rabbit is about to be eaten by a pack of wolves, it is the rabbit's fault for trying to become friends with them.

Hikigaya Hachiman is treated as an outcast by his peers, but he does not care. The only reason he goes to school is for the degree. Anything from joining a club to making friends is not on his list of things to do during high school, and he prefers it that way.

Volunteer work or giving people advice is the last thing Hachiman wants to do. Why would he waste his time helping a complete stranger do something that he or she probably could have done himself or herself with enough effort? Yet Hachiman would still complete the task, even if there is nothing in it for him.

What makes Hachiman dangerous is the way he does things. He will tell people things they do not want to hear, speak up and inquire about what everyone else was silently thinking about, and set fire to the feelings welled up inside others who have tried to keep them secret. Hachiman will take all the stares, all the hits, all the verbal abuse, and he will not flinch. He will do whatever it takes to get people off their feet and do as they are told.

When he returns to that quiet room to prepare himself for the aftermath of his actions, a new sticker on that sign means maybe what he did has its merits."
