One normal school day, Rikka Takanashi notices Makoto Isshiki secretly passing a flash drive to Yuuta Togashi. Curious, Rikka talks to her friends about the case, who agree that Yuuta is hiding something from her. They decide to discover the contents of the flash drive by any means necessary, but to their surprise, it merely contained pictures of an idol that Yuuta adored back in middle school. However, Rikka takes offense, as she claims that this breaks their contract as lovers and demands Yuuta to return the flash drive.

Although having seen Yuuta return the flash drive, she still felt uncertain about the situation. This leads to her sneaking into Yuuta's room during the night, only to find out that the flash drive had not been returned! Scanning through its contents, she hurriedly rushes to bed when Yuuta enters her room. To her terror, she finds the flash drive crushed due to her negligence in keeping it in a safe place. Yuuta quickly finds out and demands an apology. However, Rikka too, demands an apology from him, resulting in both of them refusing to be the one to apologize first. Will the two lovebirds be able to resolve their argument?

I never liked the Chuunibyou series. I tried watching the first season but dropped it in 4 episodes out of sheer boredom. I will never watch another full episode of Chuunibyou but for this exception, I grant it a solid 9/10.

One of the reasons I didn't enjoy Chuunibyou was because I couldn't sit through the 'fantasy action' scenes and I still skipped over the one in this episode. However, the story, cliched as it may seem to some, turns out sweet with good pacing and somewhat enticing dialogue. I don't even know why I enjoyed the dialogue, but it was whimsical and erratic enough to ...

Another extra episode to this series that slow everything down from the finale. Rikka and Yuuta put each other into a situation that causes them to fight. It's a great episode that helps see these two as an actual couple and not just two people brought together by chuunibyou. It shows that these two really care about their relationship and strive to trust one another to the fullest. The girls are there to help Rikka as she does not know what to do in the situation. She doesn't want to be mad at Yuuta but can't let what happen slip. The same thing goes for ...

I liked the first Chuunibyou season. I can safely say i fokin loved it. I also liked the second one.
Through both of them i was amazed by MC. Yuuta was the first character in anime that i could relate to and empathize with so deeply.
Aaaaand there comes this absolute storm of shit, weird decisions and the the worst, the most bitter ending i have ever seen.
Maybe i don't understand something about the Japanese pop culture? Like, is treating "idols" like that normal? I am not the auth-right guy saying that the person im with is mine and looking at someone other should be punised ...
