Welcome to the Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! anime discussion! Boy, that's a long title.

Plot

Genre: Romance, Comedy

"Chuunibyou" is loosely defined as "middle-schooler syndrome," a phase that everyone seems to go through in their middle school years where they pretend they are a superhero, eat weird new foods, or obsess over different things they find cool or interesting. Eventually, they grow out of it, and feel embarrassed every time they remember it.

As Yuuta Togashi enters high school, he remembers how obsessed he was with acting like an original anime character he named "Dark Flame Master" and decides to put that embarrassing past behind him. However, a girl who lives in the apartment directly above his and goes to the same school still has delusions of being a magical anti-hero herself, and she won't leave Yuuta alone as she includes him in her fantasies.

Why You Should Watch This?

For now, this is blank. If you're a big fan with a nice blurb, I'll be glad to put it down in this thread. Be sure to support your favorite anime series.

Why should you watch this? Because if you are in middle or high school and you are on this site then chances are you feel or used to feel like Yuuta at one point, where you look back at the things you thought were cool, the stories you wrote that seemed amazing, and now feel embarrassed every time your brain brings it up. Also like Yuuta, on occasion I'd run into a girl from one of my classes who never really got past that phase of pretending she was a character from Sailor Moon and wrote various fanfics about it.

So yeah, watch this show, you can probably relate to at least one of the characters in some way. Plus the "epic" fight scenes are hilarious when they suddenly cut to what's actually happening.

Second season started and the first episode was quite good.

@takashichea: is it okay to have a discussion in this thread for the second season?

@bigz007:

Oh, this was one of the old threads before we had that new format. I'll move it.

I'll try to watch this show, so you have someone to bump this thread when you comment on the episodes for the second season. I bump threads for Marshall a lot.

@takashichea: You don't have to watch an anime just because of me, I appreciate the thought. You already have too much stuff going on.

@bigz007:

I have to. It's my part of mod requirements to promote the discussions. I don't want discussion threads to fail because only one person comments. No one is bumping them to help that one person.

Don't worry about me. I could also post other stuff not just comments about the episode. I can post pics, stuff about wiki, or figures.

@takashichea: Thanks, I really don't know how can you manage all of that.

Watching this anime made me think that I might have a fetish for girls with an eye patch and I just realized that I made a list for those characters not knowing about my own fetish ~Characters with an eyepatch~.

Btw, Rikka is really cute.

@takashichea: there is a review attached by mistake to the second season page. It's probably because of page recycling. Is it possible to attach it to the right page?

@bigz007:

That's the problem with recycling wiki pages. I can't move reviews. I don't have the power to do that. I think we can push it off by doing more blogs. Whenever I get a news for this show or a topic relating to show, I link it to this wiki page. Since Crunchyroll's Winter 2014 Simulcasts has Chuunibyou, I'm going to rework my blog links to cover Chuunibyou.

I'm going to upload these shots in the concept art page. I see you already have the measurements for them.

This picks up right where the 1st season ended.Can not find how many episodes this will be tho.Even Anichart an Anime News Network had nothing on the number of episodes.

Reasons for watching could also be for the comedy .Story is genraly not mean tword those with their delusions .The over the top fight sceens are something to behold for sure.But its has a nice flow in its story .Tho some were put off by it thinking it was another high school slips into other world fights evil story.Its offbeat characters carry the story well enuff .

Gota wonder whats going on with the colors in anime this season. 2nd episode felt like it was colorful an flat .The stroy was fine the animation was fine but the colros were flat.Was not just one source either.Very few true blacks used in the show it was like a grey film was over the animaton.Even when a sceen had this sunset that sould have poped it was blurred greyed down like.

Not as bad as say Copperion but at times ,but i wondered if the color wheel becase a triangle an no one told me.

@Marshal Victory: Oh, second episode is up... good think I saw your post.

@bigz007: Please tell me what ya think of the colors on this one. I know im like 8 years due for new glasses an all but no matter the source that 2nd episode seemed color bland.

@Marshal Victory: Well, at first it was a bit grayish... I don't know, I got used to it. It's not that bad.

@bigz007: Im probly bit to sensitive to colors .It was the only thing that bugged me .The shows moving on nicely tho.One can tell how much he cares for her by going back to the dark lord voice for her benifit an play.

Hmm color was much better in the 3rd one. Also alot of nice fake batle stuff an the plot may triangle a bit . But have to think that the foreshadwing says difrent. Could have lived with out the cross dresing magic girl bit tho.

Yeah, I guess new girl had to appear so that those two love birds could get closer...
