Some shows are better left without a sequel.

Meet "Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren", Kyoto Animation's latest offering, the esteemed studio that once brought titles such as Haruhi, Clannad: After Story and Full Metal Panic: TSR to the anime industry. The KyoAni of 2014 is no such studio. Instead, we find rubbish like Free and Kyoukai no Kanata on an almost seasonal basis. The KyoAni of before is done and gone. They can't even seem to do sequels right any more.

It remains a mystery how KyoAni managed to mess the Chuunibyou franchise this badly. Granted, the first season wasn't anything particularly special, but read more

I think most of the anime watching community has learned to generally expect two things from KyoAni:

1. There will be moe
2. The story and plot will either be subpar or shit.

I want to say that it's nice Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! got a second season, I really do. The first season of Chuunibyou was decent; it had a little bit of eight-grade syndrome, a little bit of romance, obligatory KyoAni moe, and a bit of slice of life. Characters actually felt like they made progress and it was a fairly enjoyable watch overall. I can't say the same about the second season.

I feel I need to write this review just so that the people like me, who were tempted to not watch Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren due to the collection of unfavorable reviews on the page, can actually give the anime a chance!

I thought this sequel was great! Sure the story and romance in the worlds most slowly progressing relationship does not reach amazing new heights but that does not mean that the anime is not highly enjoyable. For starters one of the perks of Ren is that it continues with the same feel and humorous style as the first series, if you read more

I'm a little disappointed considering how much I enjoyed the clearly superior season 1 in comparison to this. Now, don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this season too, just not as much as I did compared to season 1.

I was surprised how much I season 1 entertained me. It was definitely a fun experience and I was very eager to get myself started with season 2. While sing praise towards season 1, I can't say the same for season 2.

Plot wise, Just like season 1, the plot wasn't deep nor complex. But season 1's plot definitely had more depth and it didn't feel forced. We read more
