Novels inspired 2 TV anime series

The November issue of Kadokawa's Dragon Magazine revealed on Thursday that Wataru Watari's My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected light novel series will end with the 14th volume. According to Dragon Magazine, the 13th volume will ship around October 18, and the 14th volume will ship in November.

Shogakukan published the novel series' 12th volume in September 2017, and the series headed toward its final arc with the volume.

Watari began the original My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected (Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru.) light novels with illustrations by Ponkan8 in Japan in 2011, and the series had more than 5 million copies in print as of April 2017. The series topped the Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! lists of best bunkobon (A6-sized) light novels in 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Yen Press licensed the novel series and Naomichi Io's My Youth Romantic Comedy Is Wrong, As I Expected @ comic manga adaptation for English publication in 2015. The publisher describes the story:

Hachiman Hikigaya is a cynic. "Youth" is a crock, he believes--a sucker's game, an illusion woven from failure and hypocrisy. But when he turns in an essay for a school assignment espousing this view, he's sentenced to work in the Service Club, an organization dedicated to helping students with problems in their lives! How will Hachiman the Cynic cope with a job that requires--gasp!--optimism?

The novels inspired two anime seasons, which Crunchyroll streamed under the titles My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU and My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released both seasons on home video in North America. Rechi Kazuki's Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. -Monologue- manga, an adaptation of the anime version, runs in Square Enix's Monthly Big Gangan magazine.
