Very good ideas but with a poor execution
Oregairu is about Hikigaya Hachiman and his life style like a lonely man because of his past when he was rejected by his classmates. A teacher will help making him join a club where he meets Yukino and Yui, while they are totally different they'll be developing an interesting relationship.
Pros: The characters are introduced in a very good way and they have a strange chemistry troughout the series, we see their behavior to each other in a realistic way. Also, you can understand why the protagonist feels in the way he does and you can empathize with him. The series has very good messages for teenagers and they are good executed in the story. Lastly, the OST is quite decent.
Cons: The execution of how everything happens is the same as any other romcom anime, it's full of clichés like festivals, student council and sport activities. It feels so limited and It's boring, many characters contribute nothing and have a lot of time on screen (the white hair boy and Iroha are almost useless). But the worst part is that instead of focusing more on the problems of the characters and their lives, the series prefers to be about a love trio, I dare to say that most people who watches Oregairu just want to know who Hachiman will choose, Yukino or Yui.
Conclusion: Oregairu seems different because of his interesting characters and well elaborated messages, but it becomes a generic series because it chose the easy way. But in the end, it's nothing terrible.
