It seems that KyoAni is making a new anime about some eye patch loli (not exactly a loli). Anyways, here's some info about it - Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! - MyAnimeList.net (http://myanimelist.net/anime/14741).

The air date is 2012-10-03 (MAL didn't update it yet).

4 PVs are posted so far:
1. The long one - TV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ud0fDdXHnYc&feature=plcp)
2. The eye drop one - TV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pl-3VnX8Rs0&feature=plcp)
3. The "putting on the eye patch" + random cat with pink wings on the street one - TV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f7PQ628bzIE)
4. and the OP PV (whatever that means...) - TV (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtYJ1_gFZws&feature=plcp)

Will you watch it, fap to it or do you want to burn it with fire?

There is some info about the novel here - Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! (KyoAni LN) - AnimeSuki Forum (http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=113813). It doesn't say that it's finished or not, but I'm guessing that it is since only 2 of them got published in 2011. Think KyoAni is just taking the novel and expanding it with the anime (since it got released by them).

All done for preview all left is to pap, read, watch and wait... I'm just hoping this is not gonna be a some familiar plot.
I will watch the anime first before the VN. ( After i get back from Macau and travel to Ibusuki for visiting my GrandParent )
I'm only interested in Chuunibyou personality thing.. It's gonna be on my list!
I wonder how author/creator gonna finish this since it's not yet finish, The novel that is..

I will definitely watch it .It is a KyoAni's anime so it will be good.(Another LN adaptation=another loose ending,*Sigh*)

Lately,many LNs are being adapted into animes .That is not a good sign bcoz that kind of animes leave us with a loose ending.
Accel world,Hyouka,SAO and Campione all finish with loose ending .Lately,the anime community is losing masterpiece.
And because of that,i have high hope in LB.

The thing is - it's kinda the other way around with this anime/LN. KyoAni published 2 LNs and they will expand the story with the anime. It's not the usual "LN 1-3 out of 8 get animated".

10-04-2012, 06:44 PM
Finally finished the 1st ep (fucking work -.-).
To start off - the OP is rather messed up, don't know what they were thinking with that image flashing, I like the "Lite OP" much more. The intro gets you up to speed on what Chuunibyou actually is and the MC's background. I would prefer it to be done in a less direct way, but it's not a big deal.
I really like the comedy in this show (even though there's not that much of it yet), the scene with Rikka entering the train was hilarious imo, it looks like Nichijou x Hyouka.
As usual in KyoAni's animation it's about the little details, there was something about Rikka's movement/facial expression animation in the infirmary (don't ask me what, can't explain it xD), it was very well done.
The ED was nothing special, Lite one sucks as well.
I have to note about Yuuta and Rikka's teacher, she's not added on MAL yet, but I'm damn sure that it's Sanae from Clannad (Inoue, Kikuko - MyAnimeList.net (http://myanimelist.net/people/195/Kikuko_Inoue)).
About the side characters introduced so far - I don't know how relevant they will be in the later episodes, but I don't think they can develop them much in 12 episodes. Doubt that we'll give a shit about them anyway.
The last scene had really great music and a nice feel to it, I'm starting to think that KyoAni can make a whatever scene, put nice music in it and it's gonna be awesome.

Overall I liked the first episode, it had a decent introduction to the characters, some comedy scenes, random interactions which will probably take most of the screen time in the later episodes and a really great ending scene. I just hope that KyoAni put in more comedy then in Hyouka. The premise and the characters are nothing really new. Rikka conveniently moved to the same building as the MC and they conveniently have/had the same "disease". Nevertheless, Rikka is retardedly moe it's almost scary xD.
I see the show going in 2 possible directions - 1. Rikka getting "cured", 2. Yuuta getting into the cosplay thing again. Don't think there will be that much romance though it would be VERY nice if there was.
Looking forward to the weekly torture yet again :>

Man, this anime is nothing short of awesome. The fight scene was hilarious as hell and just judging from the first two episodes, I have huge expectations. The quality is tremendous.. at times, I forget that she doesn't really have those powers. The new senapi (http://i.imgur.com/J8OrM.jpg) was pretty funny as well and had some good chemistry with Rikka and Yuuta.... she seems to be really amused by the delusions. Onee-chan (http://i.imgur.com/xINzd.jpg) wasn't bad herself either :P Also had a good laugh at the very first dream scene. Like I said, great quality so far. Even though they're only 2 episodes in, the characters are nice so far. Also noticed that Rikka has been calling Yuuta "Yuuta" or "Dark Flame Master" since the first episode and Yuuta calls her by her family name instead. It's nice to see that at least she has some awareness of this whereas we see Yuuta either doesn't care or doesn't notice. He's a classic tsundere.

I agree with desi about this episode and I liked Kumin, though personally I found the first episode slightly better (dat train scene). Both both episodes were great and the pacing was just great in the 2nd ep. I thing is kinds strange to me: why does Rikka's sister have a recording of Yuuta from 2 years ago ? She said that it was from the balcony when he was doing the cosplay thing, she couldn't have lived there back then though. Maybe she just found it. Also, Kumin said "You're such good friends, did you grow up together?". It sounds a bit fishy to me...or I'm just over thinking it.

Another awesome episode. Epic engrish throughout. Definitely had a good laugh with the Rikka and Sanae scene.

Had a good laugh at most of these:

Don'tshoooot (http://i.minus.com/ibbFCSUlokX1OX.gif)
Wink at the end. (http://i.minus.com/iI3D2tXt0T58m.gif)

Yuuta always complains about Rikka, yet he still hangs out with her. Probably because she sort of represents Yuuta's former self and it's a way for Yuuta to experience the nostalgia without actually being the Dark Flame Master. In a way, you might be able to see it as a struggle.. guess we'll see later if he fully embraces it or sets it aside for good. Or they just like being around each other and won't fully admit it yet. Oh yeah, what do you think is Nibutani's motivation for joining that club? Maybe she was like Yuuta and is repressing the delusions... or maybe she just likes him. Probably the last one again.

Gonna be honest, comedy alone is never enough to interest me in something... well, with some exceptions here and there maybe, but in general it's not. Great storytelling, mystery, intrigue, drama (not heavy psychological drama), interesting romance and happy aftermaths - that's some of the stuff I value most.

But this anime is funny, of course. Funnier than alot of other things I've seen. It's cute comedy. The characters are cute. The animation is fantastic.

That said, it actually does have something more than just comedy. And it shows itself in the last part of the first episode. If you've seen it then you know what I mean. That scene was really sweet. Hopefully, there'll be some more similar situations later on.

Also, the romance bit will probably be very nice after some more episodes aswell.



Oh and, napping club? Everyone in my school was part of that club I think. :rolleyes:

Finally got around to watch the 3rd ep - best episode so far imo. There was so much comedy that it took like like 45min to watch the episode, due to replaying of the hilarious scenes.The crazy blonde is awesome, gotta love the hair spin scene and the way she says "desu", I'm worried that I'll like her more then Rikka, hopefully not. Think this show almost reached the insanity level of Nichijou, though it will probably surpass it soon. The "fight scene" visuals are getting more and more ridiculous and over the top, I'm wonder how a "serious" fighting anime from KyoAni would look like with those insane visuals.
And now the waiting continues...again :/ . At least Lite ep4 got subbed.

Episode 4 - fuck Nibutani, don't like the personality change. Beside Nubutani turning into a bitch, I loved the Rikka and Sanae's shenanigans - Yutta trolling them with the book xD. Fight scene was epic as usual, my only wish is to see Yutta go Dark Flame Master mode and show them who's boss. The reason for Nibutani to join the club is kinda meh, but I guess this opens a path for her character development (if they can do that in 12 episodes), I still don't like her. Till next week.

My opinion on this episode

I don't really mind the personality change. In fact , I sort of saw it coming. Well.. I didn't totally expect a huge character shift. But now it's pretty much apparent and totally obvious.. now that Yuuta's idealized vision of Nibutani has crashed and burned, the field is totally clear for Rikka to be the main girl... not that anyone didn't think it wasn't going to be her.. it just makes it much easier for the story now since they don't have to put a huge emphasis on rejection since it isn't really that type of anime.

My rambling for the 4th ep.



Had just finished watching the 3rd episode. XD
And for Nibutani, I hope it was this...
"she was like Yuuta and is repressing the delusions"...lol It would be hilarious to see what kind of imagination that she has.

Yes, looks like I guessed right. However, it didn't exactly turns out like the way I thought it would be.

I thought when they revealed her true intention, that moment will be spectacular/memorable or full with hilarios stuff that would make me laugh. Instead, the revelation moment was downright predictable, boring, and not even interesting. Why do they need to show her reaction when Yuuta mention that the book is in his house is beyond me. For the first half of this episode, I feel like watching something that I know is going to happen, only to see it happening, and then be disappointed with it. >.>

Second half of this episode is about Nibutani and the Mabinogion book. The sudden changes of Nibutani behavior is kind of a gamble imo. There's bound to be people who like the old personality better and people who adapt/accept the current characteristic. Luckily, I like the changes. Yes, here comes "Eiiji female version" into this story. Muahaha. XD But, there's one problem. She's not funny. -.- Which also make the latter half of this ep. not funny enough.

I like the changes, but I hope Nibutani doesn't take the spotlight much for the next episode. I wanted to see more of Touka, Dekomori, and Rikka. This characters provide lulz and cool moment.

P.S. The fighting scenes is getting crazier. I loved it. XD

Solid episode overall. My heart. (http://i.minus.com/iOc79YNRNgRvR.gif)

Inb4Nibutanihate. She definitely adds a lot to the comedic banter as a second and harsher voice of reason in the group. The second half focused very nicely on Rikka and Yuuta and showed the developing romance and relationship. No big time visuals and battles, just pure character development. I think the question still remains.... is Rikka coming to terms with reality, or is Yuuta coming to terms with Dark Flame Master? Guess we'll find out.

There was alot of DES to be had, atleast in the first half. Much DES! Alot of DES! Love all that, love all that. DES.

Since I care much less about the "battles" and their visuals than the other things in this anime (romance hinting, comedy, character development, rare serious moments), this episode was really good for me.

Ep 5 - Don't have much time to write anything long, so - I loved this episode. Deko vs Shinka is hilarious, Yuuta x Rikka moments were really great in this one and there were sooo much moe and hhhnnnggg moments this time. It seems that Yuuta is slipping back to his old self - he got into "number conversation" with Deko and Rikka and the ending stuff. If Yuuta goes to the "dark side" again, he may convert Shinka as well, that would be nice to see. Once again it took me 1 hour to watch the episode xD

Ep 6 is out.

Unity between Nibutani and Dekomori (http://h.dropcanvas.com/zjd7z/23.gif)

The Nibutani and Dekomori horseplay was hilarious in this episode.

Kind of left off at a cliffhanger with the summer vacation proposition. Interesting to see where they'll go with the next episode. Judging by the OP, maybe the whole crew will join them? Guess we'll find out.

Ep 6 - as previously stated - nibutani vs dekomori scenes were the best part of this episode. That whole "love letter" thing wasn't all that great imo, I didn't really care much about that side character. The holding hand scene was really nice, even though it came out of nowhere xD. As the show goes on, I feel like it's turning into Nichijou more and more. Next ep = umi/mizugi fest \o/.

Damn, for a episode that looked like it was a bit of fan service, this episode truly advanced the plot. What Rikka said in the end was pretty powerful. "Banishment... this world." It looks like her chuunibyou is related to her her inability to move on from the loss of her father. Also, it looks like almost all of them get along better now and are growing closer as friends. Very good episode.

Ep 7 - This was a very nice surprise from the "expected umi fanservice episode".
How I look at the show so far: if it was only comedy and random school stuff - it would be awesome, now that it has a deeper plot and some touching/sad moments (getting a Clannad vibe from the great music + sad scenes) it pretty much turned into my top 10 at least. A another thing about this episode - it could have easily been an "11/12" episode, serving as a series final cliffhanger with a resolve on the last episode, yet it was only the 7th ep. Can't wait to see what they have planned for the ending of the show.
As Desi said, the cast is getting along better, even Dekomori and Nibutani are on better terms, kinda. The BGM at 7:50 was so damn nice, it made the scene very touching. Can't wait for the OST to come out.
It goes without saying that this was the best episode so far and I can't find any faults with it. Next Thursday can't come sooner.

Also, smells like Yuuta? Smells like DES I bet. Dark Flame Master!

11-22-2012, 07:22 AM
Ep 8 - I can already see the title for this episode on Seventhstyle - "Moeblob in love" xD. Not a whole lot to say about this episode except HHHNNNGGG. Rikka has fallen for Yuuta 100%, now it's his turn (do not disappoint, KyoAni!). I'm guessing that the "romance progression" will stop until like episode 11 since the side characters got kinda neglected for 2 or so episodes.
Once again, the music was really great in this episode, they even put a full song in it (which URW subbed) which was a nice touch.
Lastly, I guess I was right about this, but I'm not 100% sure yet - https://erogegames.com/social/anime-lobby/1376-chuunibyou-demo-koi-ga-shitai-4/#post36896 (the them knowing each other from before high school). There is a very brief flashback scene where a(younger?) normal Rikka is looking at Yuuta in DFM mode, similarly to the scene in episode 1. My speculation about it - Rikka maybe came to visit the town where Yuuta lives after her father died (maybe because her mother lives nearby or something like that). She saw Yuuta doing his DFM routine, thought it was cool and she basically got the "chuunibyou illness" from him to cope with her father's death.
Oh, I forgot - Deko said "Uguu" in the bath, Ayu <3

As killer said, the music in this episode was fantastic. Some nice romantic progression in this episode. Pillow-senpai starting the napping club makes sense now lol... she went to kindergarten where they nap, then she took that habit over to home-schooling, and now she's back in high school where she started the napping club XD Also, her being home-schooled sort of shows why she doesn't mind the chuunibyou-ness from other people... she just sees that as people having their fun :P

Man, not a weak episode in this entire series, IMO. Deredere Rikka is just funny to watch. I like that not every girl likes the main guy.. definitely a nice breath of fresh air. Guess the plan in the end worked out after all. Nibutani is awesome as always and it was funny seeing her get frustrated at Rikka failing :P And it's nice to see Nibutani and Pillow-senpai cheering them on. It had characters talking about love and ended on a great note. Can't wait for next weeks episode.

Ep 9 - Dat ending <3 . If it keeps going like this, we may actually see a kiss scene from a KyoAni show, it will be a miracle indeed. I just hope they don't fuck it up in the last 3 episodes, because as desi said, there are no weak episodes in this show so far. What else is there to say about this ep, rikka's "in-love" behavior is omega kawaii, Kumin is as clueless as ever and Shinka as the matchmaker is fitting since the rest of the cast are fucking idiots in that department. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go get my weekly diabetes check-up.

Oh man, I had a great laugh at this scene http://images.4chan.org/a/src/1354744112053.png ... oh yeah, AWESOME music in this episode.. especially in the middle.

Ep 10 - The 1st half of the episode was so HHHNNNGGG, I got no words for it, really good stuff. The 2nd was a more or less a setup for the last 2 episodes and I'm really glad they didn't go with the "Rikka needs to move away with be to some other city" route. Instead they went with the more drama route - her mom will move in with her (possible "crying like a girl" Clannad moment please). Yuuta has kinda taken the role of Touka, which will be interesting to see because he's "almost-dating" Rikka. The music keeps getting better and better, they keep pulling awesome tracks out of nowhere. Lastly, the Rikka x Dekomori "almost yuri scene" at the start was funny as hell, Dekomori is a closet pervert for sure.

Was that a great episode or what! Really interesting development from start to finish. EMOTIONS! I love it. Plenty of seriousness and sadness for everyone. Poor Dekomori, des. The scene that iLT mentioned was nice indeed. Tears (http://i.imgur.com/goes3.jpg)

That strangely long moment with the train in the background (15:15 - 15:42) felt very... good and appropriate, actually.

Sad to see Touka leave. But hey, the hugs were really sweet and meaningful at least!

Well, anyway, very much looking forward to the last episode of Chunnibyou. I'm sure it'll be fantastic, considering everything else so far.

Ep 11 - In addition to what everyone else said, Dekomori sure took crapload of abuse this episode. The crying animation really reminded me of a certain character in a certain field from an another KyoAni anime. The inevitable Deko x Nibutani moment was finally shown, it was rather nice to see. Every character (including Yuuta in the later parts of the episode) thought that it was wrong to change Rikka so suddenly. We'll see where the last ep takes it, but I'm pretty sure that not everyone will end up "just normal" in the end. My wish for the last ep is to see Nibutani in "Mori Summer mode", come on Kyoani! Lastly - while there was almost no comedy in this episode, I thought that Rikka calling other characters "properly" was amusing, especially Sanae-chan and Yuuta-kun xD .

@Hongō Kazuto - Doubt it's gonna be anything but a happy end tbh. They wouldn't put a depressionfest episode (11th) and follow it up with an another depressionfest one. It would just break off the show's contrast way too much.

Damn, what a good episode. Previous comments really explained why it was great. Deko x Nibutani scene was really nice and yeah, I agree with killer about the crying scene from a certain other anime :P Looked exactly like it. Prediction for next episode: Rikka's train gets derailed, Kumin-Senpai is actually the devil incarnate, and Dekomori ends up in a mental asylum. Serious Prediction: A pretty bittersweet ending. Not exactly sure how it's going to go down, but I don't think it's going to be a "rescue" scene.. guess we'll see. Oh, and the VAs did a marvelous job this episode.. seriously.

Hell yes. Don't you think we all want that?
However, let's consider the following:
-This is 90% anime original
-This sobfest was built up 3 episodes ago and with careful and proper momentum (this drama land ep was plotted!)
-It's Kyoani we're talking about (and they resorted to their trademark crying scene)
I'd love a happy ending, of course. But everything here points to a bittersweet ending... (more bitter than sweet, the way I see it.)

And so it ends!

Not exactly a surprising finale, but one that felt good. I had such a big smile on my face during the last minutes of it... Chuunibyou is just a really beautiful anime overall, and that shows to a great extent in this final episode. Preeeetty! (http://i.imgur.com/lZJRj.jpg) That last monologue about eight-grade syndrome was very nice and meaningful.

Dekomori without her twin tails and outside her syndrome was pretty cool. Though she's still more awesome as the DES Saavanto equipped with the Mjolnir Hammer. Oh and, Kumin-senpai possessed by the Second Tyrant's Eye? YES PLEASE! (http://i.imgur.com/X8Xcq.jpg) Haha, well it was funny to see anyway.

No Mori Summer, but oh well.

Well, I feel happy now. Chuunibyou was really really great, enough said. From the (few) anime that I've seen so far, it ended up being one of my favourites.

And so it ends - This anime was sure something else, started off as an almost-pure comedy, transitioned into a "friendship & club bonding" anime and ended up as a pure romance. There was not a single boring episode imo (like with Hyouka) and I can pretty much say that I've enjoyed every second of it.
It's just a shame that it didn't get a full 24 ep run time, but we have a full episode OVA next year and 2 more "chuuni fighting" shorts coming soon. I did tear up a bit at that unseen horizon scene, for which I can blame a certain VN :>. KyoAni went by the cliche book for the end, but I would rather have that then an inconclusive ending.
This was the most enjoyable anime for me since Nichijou. Let's see if KyoAni can top this one with Tamako Market.
