Both series are really similar with the idea of a male protagonist being pestered/bullied comically by a very strange/publicly embarrassing female protagonist that believes in the occult. Both girls make hybrid clubs which a few characters join for various reasons, and along with these people the main protagonist must figure out the story behind this strange girl in order to help her.

[Spoiler Warning] Both animes have similar stories, like the fact that the two main characters start with a friendship, but at the end of the anime declare themselves to each other in a loving relationship. In Chuunibyou, the characters derive their characteristics because of another person, as Rikka, who decided to change her way of being because of Yuuta, the Dark Flame Master. In Toradora, the characters seem to show feelings for friends of their friends at the beginning of the anime. But throughout history, they realize that actually liked each other.

Basically the same premise in both. Guy has an "imaginative" childhood, becomes ashamed of said childhood, switches schools to avoid being bullied, meets girl at new school that is currently having an "imaginative" period, guy inevitably gets mixed up in the girl's "adventures", and resolves himself to help her return to reality.

Both shows deal with characters who like to stage supernatural fights. Both shows take place in a high school club that consists of one guy and several girls. The big differences are that in Chuunibyou the superpowers are all imaginary while in Inou Battle they are real, and that the lead male in Inou Battle is the delusional one while in Chuunibyou the lead female is the center of delusions.

Both have: - Hero (Yuuta/Sorata) who is apparently normal (or wants to be) taking care of the heroine who is a weirdo and a loner(Rikka/Shiina). - Hero keeps a cat (Hikari/Chimera) that frequently join the characters. - Hero is surrounded by a weird group of people: a peculiar guy who seeks relationships with girls (Isshiki/Jin); a popular classmate (Nibutani/Aoyama); an energetic crazy girl (Dekomori/Misaki); a character with strange habits (Kumin/Akasaka). - Both have romance and a lot of comedy.

Both are from the same studio (Kyoto Animation). The male protagonist is similar on both series: they want to have a normal high school life until they meet the female protagonist (that is a bit strange). She may change the protagonist personality.

Both Rika and Mirai have similar personality and character design. Also Yuuta and Akihito are drawn to our lovely female protagonist. In Chuunibyou: our main female and friends are chuunibyou or 8th grade syndrome aka Delusion of Grandeur. They are able to create imaginative battle sequences which we see throughout the series. In Kyoukai no Kanata: everyone has some sort of supernatural powers within them. Both series retain the comedy and drama atmosphere. Kyoto Animation is the same studio for both Chuunibyou, Kyoukai no Kanata and many other series. I would recommend you check out their other works.

Have you heard of Chunnibyou or middle school syndrome? The series Chuunibyou demo Ko ga Shitai gives a good idea of what middle school syndrome is, yet for those who don't know, it can add a bit of cultural understanding when it comes to Megumin as her culture is highly influenced by - well, middle school syndrome.

Very lighthearted and focused on comedy, with vibrant and heavily stylized artwork. The addition of a male protagonist gives Chuunibyou a slightly different feel, however, but fans of K-ON will find plenty to enjoy here.

In a way both series are similar as the main female characters are unpopular and struggles to make friends due to their personalities. However, they do manage to make quite the attention at various points (sometimes for the wrong reasons). Both series has A LOT of humor so prepare for some good laughs. Then, there's the school life environment in a lighthearted setting. Additionally, the main male protagonist from both series are considered normal but their interactions with the main girl often leads to awkwardness for the both of them.

School club based shows centered on a delusional girl who can't distinguish real life and fiction, or rather can't get over her fantasies. Both are also kind of a supporting harem, where our main guy is surrounded by other girls but we all already know the "main girl" he will probably end up in the end.

Weird, abnormal, pretty girls, who have some fantasy images in their minds, and play it just for fun. It follows the main male character who was caught up in this situation where he was either experience one before, or was forced to join their club. Though, as time passes on, he join their antics and bond with the other club members. Chuunibyou, follows a normal boy who have experience these "delusions" before and was joined by a female character. Some fantasy action scenes, and romance. D-Frag follows a delinquent boy, who was abducted and joined the club.

I recommended "Chu-2" for "SF" since both have characters who are poco locos and also have characters who are just going with the fore mentioned's flow. characters........also, since there is no "Kickass" anime, "Chu-2" for "SF" will have to suffice.

Misunderstood relation. Chuunibyou and Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun follow misunderstood protagonists who end up forming a relation due to that misunderstanding. Though it isn't clear with Chuunibyou at face value, Rikka is a misunderstood chuunibyou character who is paired up with a normal student Yuuta. Nozaki-kun follows a misunderstood Sakura becoming a manga assistant for Nozaki. Both anime are stories which tell how misunderstandings can bring around the strangest of pairs. With both anime being rom-coms, Chuunibyou is about chuunibyous and Nozaki-kun is about publishing manga.

Just like Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai, Nichijou features a blue-haired heroine who is very sick and delusional. For example, Rikka Takanashi is convinced that she has magical powers, whereas high schooler Mio Naganohara believes she has a chance at winning the love of her life, Sasahara. Mio also draws sickening fanfiction of Sasahara in her school notebooks, much like how Rikka's friend Dekomori put together the fan-made magical compendium, Mabinogion.

Both of these are School Life and Slice of life anime, as well as comedies. Both of the main male characters try to fit in in their new school. Both anime have a lot of pretty funny situations, and the story is really interesting. The animation and art style are both really good, too.

Although the plots differ quite a bit, both shows have girls who don't quite fit in with the rest of society. These girls slowly change as they become friends and develop a relationship with the male protagonists. Also, the male and female protagonists must overcome some sort of adversity together near the end of the show.

Dramatic plot, the main characters draw you in a lot. Cutesyish art style, as well as elements of romance, drama (as I said before), and action. This isn't a perfect recommendation, as Chuuni's romance is a lot more implied, and doesn't fully blossom until the end. But chances are, if you liked this, Chuuni will be a favorite of yours, as well as Toradora!.

Both series revolve around main male character, and their interactions with other girls that go to his school and such. Both series also feature many girls, all of which have some cute quirk to go with them, making all such cute and lovable characters. While Shomin's girls' quirks are used in result of not knowing what males are this entire time in life, Chuunibyou's girls are very used to boys, and get their quirk by their 8th grade syndrome, which tends to be embarrassing and very funny to the audience.

If you enjoyed Chuunibyou purely because of its romance factor, how the main couple plays around and spends time together, then perhaps Horimiya could fill out that same void that was left upon finishing Chuunibyou. The character focus in Horimiya is a lot more fickle and shifty, but the little moments make it altogether that more precious, from my own subjective standpoint, that is. If this recommendation gets you to try Horimiya out, tell them yzhriz sent you! Enjoy! (plus the OP and ED for Horimiya absolutely SLAPS so that's an added bonus)

It remindeds one of Chuunibyou as one of the characters wonders whether Mob (the protagonist) has Chuunibyou, only that Mob's powers are real, so it's like Chuunibyou but with real supernatural powers. The set of main characters are in their second year of junior high school and undergoing great emotional upheavals and life crisis, so the overall psychological situation of the characters is very similar.

Onlooker. Chu2 and ReLife don't have a lot in common, however, they both have this one MC who feels like an onlooker on the situation, in a sense that they are the most realistic person to go to in regards to the situation. Kaizaki doing this with his adult experience influencing high schoolers, Chu2 doing this with ex-chunni Yuuta trying to make Rikka a more realistic person. Both are good rom-com, with ReLife having time travel compared to the delusions of Chu2 young people have.

A new start ruined? Chuunibyou and Wotakoi both follow protagonists who wish to keep their secrets under the blanket only to be ruined by their respective partners. Yuuta's normal school life and Narumi's normal work life chances are both ultimately destroyed by Rikka and Hirotaka alike, drawing the two parties in each anime to become close to one another and build a relationship on something they had once dashed away. Both anime are great rom-coms with Wotaki being a very relaxing anime about otakus, whilst Chuunibyou is about chuunibyous with a much-crazed atmosphere.

Delusions. Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time both follow delusions students who constantly reject the reality around them. Chuunibyou's Rikka rejects reality with her imagination enforced by the chuunibyou behaviour she has. TokiKake's Makoto rejects the normality of an orderly time path, where she constantly goes back in time to fix things accordingly to her.

Watching Chun2byou now, I couldn't help but get the same feeling I got from watching Mayo Chiki! Both of these animes have the MC taking care of a girl in their class with some sort of problem. Chaos, misunderstandings and insane hilarity ensues. If you liked one, you will certainly like the other.

The main heroines are active Chunnibyous who participate in a club where they act out their fantasies.

A young man finds himself babysitting another high school classmate who happens to live in the same building as him. He's also trying to appear to have a normal life and not let the crazies drag down his reputation, so to speak.

Both series fluctuate between surreal comedy and sombre drama as a group of spirited teenagers struggle with their core existences. And as the main characters are so easy to root for, this leads to a vivid emotional experience for the typical viewer.

Both are enjoyable, carefree anime that pick up a more serious tone later on.

Both have eccentric girls and a boy who follows them Both have romance and funny scenes The main difference is that Tasogare Otome x Amnesia have a dark atmosphere and Chuunibyou doesn't

Enjoy ridiculous fight scenes and off the wall combat moves then this anime is right for you. Both of these series will make you laugh out loud, the comedy is wacky but there is an underlying love story between the two main characters. The supporting cast of the both series are extremely funny, if not too well developed. Fun times will be had by all.

Characters from Sabagebu! are equally crazy and inmature. When they're playing, they imagine epic situations but none of that is real.

Chobits and Chuunibyo demo Koi ga Shitai! are both romantic comedies which could cause permanent paralysis or death from adorable overload. Seriously, these titles are both so f-ing cute it hurts sometimes. Both feature female protagonists who have special needs and need to be protected by the male protagonist. But it isn't sexist or anything. Anyway, just try it, and I'm sure you'll see what I mean.

In both animes there's some kind of lovestory which is told in a very cute and "bound to reality way" and in both animes u probably learn a little bit about love as such :) Also both have the same humour since the main character is a normal dude and their "girls" are behaving weird in a funny way.

Both anime are focused on pure fun and have some romance moments. Yukihira Furano has a similar personality with Takanashi Rikka (MC of Chunnibyou). What I really liked was the awkward moments. The difference is that Chuunibyou contains some supernatural scenes, while Ore no Nounai is way more focused in real everyday events. You, probably, will like the character development!

Plots about overcoming outside and personal obstacles to love. Different animation styles, age demographic, and types of comedy, but still at its core is about adolescent love.

Same feel where the characeters are chuuni. However in Dropout the characters are actually angels and demons while in Chuunibyou they just act chuuni. Also both share the same comedic appeal with overly dramatic characters.

It is similar in the way that both male characters get thrust into the crazy reality of the female mc. The difference is that this deals with more reality and Chuunibyou deals more with fantasy.

Okay Chunibyo is much more flashy and crazy than Hana to Alice, but it has that theme of new friendships and helping someone who is not all there mentally recover by solving a mystery. But most important of all the characters in Hana to Alice are definitely Chuunibyou.

- Mc doesn't do much until love interest comes in - Romance - Other people

Raul and Fino reminds me so much of Yuuta and Rikka. Raul acts retorting and chastising to Fino; much like how Yuuta retorts to Rikka whenever she goes on her chuunibyou.

Both Okabe Rintarou, and Rikka Takanashi have CHUUNIBYOU, or 8th Grade Syndrome. They both like to come up with irrational, over-the-top stuffs, fancy themselves with delusions, calling names and aliases, and coming up with terms like "Reading Steiner" for Okabe (about his eyes retaining the past memories), and "Tyrant's Eye" for Rikka (about her Chuunibyou powers). So, if you're a fan of chuunibyous, you can watch these anime. ;)

Everything has a similar fell. They're both lighthearted slice-of-life romantic comedies that were refreshing, fun to watch, with good romance. The characters are great and loveable. The art style, especially the eyes, is really similar. And they're both bound to make you laugh!

Both are KyoAni adaptations of light novels, the character designs and tone are very similar. In both the characters experience delusions in which they must defeat a force threatening their world and form a club to fight against it, these fights are very detailed with similar choreography in both. The major difference in Phantom World is that these delusions are real. Both series share seiyuu for the main heroines which are Maaya Uchida (Rikka/Koito) and Sumire Uesaka (Dekkomori/Mai).

There anime are about guys who are good at a specific type of virtual fighting but they choose to hide their power levels for various reasons. Over time they collect a group of cute girls to be around, but they each only have true romantic feelings for one of the girls. The antagonists in these anime are other participants in the virtual fighting rather than generic demons. It may be the best decision to only watch the first season.

Though Noe and Rikka share different roles in their respective stories, they are definitely characters that really drag you into the story. Extra: Both live in their own worlds, and are also intrigued by the male leads.

What do Assassination Classroom and Love Chuunibyou and other delusions have in common? Well... They both have wacky characters who you can fall in love with. Assassination classroom has a monster come teacher who provides many life lessons to his students and literally asks to die. His students are going through a rough time in their life, and are exposed to some new situations that help them develop as humans. The show really does good at making you have mixed feelings. Kill the teacher and save the world, or let him live and die horribly? Actually that seems pretty one sided when in writing... Meanwhile, Chuunibyou is  read more
