Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!

I never thought i’d see the day that depict some of the most memorable moments in my life. You know for a time i had eight-grade syndrome, but i hide it in public, mostly it comes out when i am by myself and or playing with friends. For example as a child i played badminton with neighbors and with every hit of the racket i shout an attack move mostly taken from Digimon since its really really popular back in the day. when i recall about it now i feel all embarrassed, thinking how the other people who pass by us thought. Oh but it doesn’t stop there, to this day i still have a little bit of that syndrome inside but mostly happens in my head imagining that i am this awesome warrior who well you get the point.

Title: Chuunibyou demo Koi ga shinasai!
No. of Episodes: 12 |24 Minutes ea|
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance


INTRODUCTION (How i decided to watch the series)

During the Anime’s debut wait even before it was released it has been getting a lot of attention from fans who have read the manga and advertising of the announced series with a preview. I immediately liked the concept, i can relate to it because i know i have done something like that before. Also in watching the preview and the advertisements Rikka really looks cute getting hit and being who she was without getting embarrassed.


vlcsnap-2013-09-04-12h04m24s218The Anime is exactly the kind of Anime i am into. Comedy in the beginning then establishes romantic developments among the characters which leads to a thrilling emotionally awesome feeling during the later episodes. The director sure knows how to entertain, a balance between embarrassing and awesome is how Eight-Grade Syndrome was presented. You get to see what the people with Eight-Grade Syndrome are seeing and at the same time be humored on how they really look like in public. In constantly switches from Imagination to reality and vise versa at times which makes it very interesting.

Once again another beautifully made Anime, the colors seem to show the mood of the scene and it does look like what it would look like in real life.


When it comes to the opening and ending clips there are only a few where i bother to watch them within every episode and Chuunibyou’s OP and ED clips are one of them. What you see are basic introductions of the characters but with more of a attention getting way of introduction. Seeing a full clip is well over used why not show part of the clip then show another part of the clip then show another part of that other clip and so on and so on. Seriously I’m basically staring at the screen like i’ve seen if for the first time or something!

STORY, CHARACTERS, STORY-FLOW and whatever the hell i can think off (No Spoilers)

The story colors me intrigued, I would never have thought that she would pair up with him and I thought it was some normal slice of life anime that shows the everyday life of the characters. Its not, its actually a chilling love story with a not-so-lovey-dovey romance. But it is still romance though. Its more of trying to change yourself and realizing you are unhappy with changed self so you go back to your old self but with a more balanced output of your old self and the self you changed into which you didn’t like. AND if you didn’t understand that then i suggest you just watch the anime ^_^

  1. Chuunibyou was an awesome watch for me as well. Funny thing is that I actually have a friend who pretty much acts like a chuunibyou, and sure enough he loved this anime a lot. Anywho, I love how this anime has the perfect balance of comedy and drama. The humorous moments are truly hilarious, but Chuunibyou is also a very touching story at times, and the themes of self discovery and coping via chuunibyou delusions were just great. Even though it was only 12 episodes, it offered a lot in that little time and I can definitely say it was an anime I thoroughly enjoyed.

      Yup! I was expecting a comedic school life anime so i’m really glad it was a touching anime. I thought that Yuuta would go for Nibutani xD

    • Same here, I knew to expect comedy from this and sure enough that didn’t disappoint, so I was a bit surprised to see that it pulled some really emotional drama in the latter half as well. And it certainly looked that way at first, although after he found out what Nibutani was like it definitely seemed like Rikka would be the only option one way or another. Nibutani reminded me just the slightest bit of Ami from Toradora, actually.
