Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai CONNECT (僕は友達が少ない CONNECT) is a unique light novel volume written by Yomi Hirasaka and illustrated by Buriki. This volume features Airi Hasegawa and a young Kobato Hasegawa on its cover.

Afterward NotesEdit

Some notes can be taken from the volume's afterword, though, due to poor translations, the entirety of the afterword can't be transcribed.

  • Yomi Hirasaka mentions that there are other stories he has yet to release and that a CONNECT Volume 2 may be seen at some point in the future.
  • Due to this volume having content not relating to the previous volume, Hirasaka held back on giving it an official number. He had thought about numbering it as either 8.5 or 9 but didn't due to this issue. However, he also notes that this volume should be read in between volumes eight and nine.
  • Advertisements for the second season of the Haganai Animation, called Haganai NEXT, were included.
  • Hirasaka mentions the Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai: Buriki Art Works book.


  • A special booklet concerning CONNECT was released in Comic Alive's August 2011 issue. It contains a sneak peek at the volume.
