Rikka is 18 and in the last year of high school. But she still acts like she's in puberty.

It's spring break, and high school seniors are looking ahead to their college entrance exams. Rikka Takanashi and her boyfriend, Yuuta Togashi, have been an item for a long time and live together, but their relationship seems frozen in time, unable to mature to the next level. Then one day, Rikka's elder sister, Tooka, declares she's taking her sister and the family to Italy where she's landed a stable job.

Yuuta panics despite agreeing with Tooka that Rikka can't be left alone in Japan, and her chances of getting into college are slim. Still, the two lament the idea of being torn from each other. So at the suggestion of his friends, Yuuta decides the two will elope, and a dramatic chase across Japan begins.

Acting so cute all the time that weaker men puke. Doing weird klutz stuff at least once a minute. Generating a weird, untranslatable sound effect when ever anything happens. And showing any traces of personality is automatically out of character. The life of a moeblob is certainly not the easiest, but gladly we have friends, family, school club and the will to do the things we want.

This movie is practically identical to the anime series, offering new content and pushing the romance onward. Fans and haters will hold similar thoughts about this sequel for the given reason. Those who thought Tamako Love Story is read more

This is the cinematic version of a "F*ck you"

The movie is a big, pretty piece of f*cking nothing. Nothing happens in the grand scheme of the Chuunibyou series. There are no themes here that aren't tackled somewhere else in this series, but the worst part of it is it dangles genuine character growth in front of you and then it spits on it and sneers at you, "How could you? How could you genuinely expect these characters to develop and change and grow? Don't you know you need to accept all the imperfections and bla bla bla"

Rikka's character arc in this movie is utterly read more

Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! Take On Me is what the TV anime's second season should have been. The film finally brings closure to Yuta and Rikka's stagnant relationship while reinforcing the core themes of the series. Unfortunately, this also means that, despite having an all-new story, this film essentially rehashes the same conflict from the second season, only with better writing. The fact that we've seen these story beats before diminishes their impact, no matter how well they stand alone.

Take On Me begins with Rikka up to her usual antics. She's in her third year of high school now, but not only does she read more

I have to admit that I first started watching Chunibyo because of two main reasons: the pretty visuals, and the presence of eyepatch (girl) . But once I began watching the show in earnest, I found a lot more here than I expected. Chunibyo is a show that keeps me guessing, and consistently tugs at strings I didn't know existed until they were pulled.
A sense of nostalgia was the first reaction I had, and what most people would. A past of imagination and fun. We laughed, cried, even danced for things that bring us joy. Being a high school student, read more
