Why doesn't she just say "I don't want to"

Why doesn't she just say "I don't want to" and withdraw from the election?
>>
Can she do it she's the only one running?
>>
>>124344300
Because if she did that it would be bad for her reputation.

Social pressure and all that.

Because without made-up drama there would be no Oregairu.
>>
>>124344355
Well if they say she "can't" then she should just say "Fine, you can call me student president but I'm telling you now I refuse to perform the duties of one"
>>
You can't force people to govern. Someone would happily jump in and fill the void. Maybe no one is running against her because they feel like they wouldn't have a chance anyway. If the girl just announced that she is withdrawing then I'm sure someone would step into the role.

I didn't watch the episode but in the LN her reason was kinda complicated. In short she didn't want to be president, but she didn't want to just give up electon either because she thinks it would be bad for her reputation, which she treasures to stay near "cool guys" like Hayama (especially Hayama). Losing to someone weak is bad too. The only choices are to lose to someone actually fitting for the position or become stuco herself.

That sounds so forced.

not to mention the only reason she got nominated in the first place was because of bullying

by dropping out of the race she's pretty much gonna be a laughingstock, and she cares too much about her reputation for that

The point is that she doesn't want to sully her reputation, dipshit. Try thinking for a second instead of being a retard.

Well just explain to her that it wouldn't hurt her reputation that much if at all.

Who would give a fuck?
Who's opinion of her would just be smashed to pieces because she didn't want to be school president?

In short
She just tries to keep her "mask" to become closer to Hayama.

No, it's forced fucking drama dipshit, and you're a dumbass for defending it and taking it seriously.

Sure, except this particular scenario makes zero sense. If your class elected your to jump off a bridge does that mean you have to do it? Does that mean you have to ask strangers to help devise a plot that will get you out of it instead of just telling your classmates to fuck off? No, of course not. That would be retarded.

The whole "problem solving club" deal is retarded to begin with. Doubly so if it's somehow intended to teach it's socially retarded members how to socialize.
>>
>>124345636
I'm not even against serious content per se - the issue is that the serious content conflicts with the storytelling. It's simply not believable for kids in high school - especially not the "cool" kids - to trust their peers with their personal problems, especially not those who are deemed social misfits.

If serious drama emerged from "cat in the tree" shenanigans, that would be no problem, but the way things are set up simply isn't good storytelling.
>>
>>124345754
Hmm, seems to me that you are the cancer here, shitposter.

She can't just quit the election like that, it'd be giving the bullies exactly what they wanted: something to point at her and laugh about for the rest of her highschool life (and very likely afterwards too).

"That Iroha thinks she's such hot shit. But did you know she dropped out of an election where she was the only candidate? Bet she knew she'd still lose somehow, what a loser."
>>
>>124345587
>If your class elected your to jump off a bridge does that mean you have to do it?
that has to be dumbest comparison possible, she's being democratically assigned to an important task, she's not obligated to do it but it would be shameful to refuse the honor. I'm guessing you're american.
>>
>But I'd feel better if I lost to someone really amazing.

They shouldn't spend their time and energy catering to this problem. There is no other student in the school that has a worse problem than this?

For many, it's not simple to just say no when people hold you to high esteem/have high expectations of you. If you're not popular or expected you'd never be in this position, but she is popular so she is.

People thinking highly of you feels good.
People thinking lowly of you feel bad.
People not thinking anything of you, depends -if they're nobodies, it means nothing; if they're somebodies to you, it means everything. Disappointing them will hurt.

She want a solution where she is get out of her predicament with no negative consequences. They come to the club for these solutions to problems that can only "solved" through the type of methods used by an outsider. Apparently people like 8man are unsung heroes (like garbage collectors and prostitutes) who keep normal society intact or else it will crumble under its own weight.
>>
>>124344300
I think you all are ignoring the fact that she isn't being allowed to withdraw in the first place. Her Homeroom teacher denied it because he wanted to be able to gloat about "getting a First Year to get over her anxiety and courageously become the Student Council President!"

She's also almost universally hated by the girl population, so the bullying wouldn't be as small scale as some of you are putting it. If something as silly as 8man texting his confession could make his life a living hell, imagine having a reputation of forfeiting or losing the election as president even though you didn't have any competition.
>>
>>124345186
Yeah I don't really get where he's coming from with all this social pariah shit.

>With elections approaching, student candidates in Lucknow, for example openly supported by national and regional political parties, extorted money and vehicles from businessmen, plastered the city with posters and subjected it to their violent and clamorous will. After elections, elected leaders extorted contracts from the university, particularly the works department, forced entry into all important university decisions and exacted protection money from government contractors. They also sported the latest cars, had their own gunmen and strode the university overawing and coercing college principals and university vice-chancellors to do their bidding. They did not stop at university authorities, but extorted money and goods from local merchants, ostensibly to “fund student activities”

Because cultural differences. Clubs are a big part of student life in Japan. Their budget gets decided by the student council, who reviews their activities, their general worth to the school, etc. and gives them money based on this. Imagine being in a society where the only joy you have is having fun in a club, and that club might have their budget slashed by a nebulous organization that you don't know anything about.

The only social misfit in the club is 8man, and if you'll remember Tobe specifically asked him to GTFO when he came asking for their help with his confession. Yui is one of the cool girls of the school, and while no one's friends with Yukino, they generally respect her and know she can be trusted. (because she's so dead serious about everything)

And most of the requests they've gotten have been from their little circle of acquaintances (or at least acquaintances of one) who would have asked for help from the member of the club they knew anyway. Only Yui (at the time) and the guy from the wrestling team were total strangers to everyone from the club.
