This is in the beginning of the Oregairu manga (it's on the 10th page of volume 1, which is in the free sample on ebookjapan):


What does らいたい mean here? I would also be interested in how I could have found the answer on the internet, since I couldn't find anything useful via various searches on google and jisho.

    It's slurred 「だいたい」... and the 「でしゅか」 at the end is slurred 「ですか」(have no idea how to search these things on the Internet though..)

Did you notice the same guy said 噛みまくった in the next frame? Here 噛む is a slangy expression meaning "to falter" (see the fifth definition in jisho.org).

The original sentence is: いたいこんな感じじゃないでか.
