Unaired 13th episode released with volume 7 of the Blu-ray and DVD.

Rikka becomes displeased with Yuuta after she discovers Makoto had secretly given him a USB stick containing photos of an idol he had a crush on during middle school. Rikka and the other girls instruct Yuuta to return the stick immediately, though Makoto secretly lets him keep it. Later that night, as Rikka sneaks into Yuuta's room and discovers the stick, she inadvertently destroys it whilst trying to hide it from him, leading to the two of them arguing over who was in the wrong. With neither side willing to apologise, the girls enlist the help of Satone and Kuzuha to see how Yuuta reacts when Rikka doesn't come home, finding that he still cares about her, and the two manage to make up with each other.

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 read more

Look at this one!

A special episode of Chuunibyou S2

On the first place, I thought it was just one of those specials where they fight using their powers, guess not.

Well, this was a short continuation after S2.
For me this episode just successfully filled up few portion of what was missing on S2 and yes it was the progress.

The progress of their relationship moved quite a bit. The short fight between Rikka and Yuuta caused a progress basing on how the fight ended. It was cute though.

This episode would relieve some of the hates of the S2 because this is where the progress began to emphasize.

Overall 9/10 read more

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 read more

The Rikka Wars is a short and light-hearted little side-story happening as continuation of the last season of the anime.

Considering how only one episode doesn't really contain a whole lot of content, I will try to keep this review rather concise.

The story isn't really anything too interesting, though it managed to keep my attention. It has some progression throughout this single episode and the ending is satisfying enough.

The art is still as impressive as it was in the previous iterations. Similarly the soundtrack still lacks something memorable.

The characters are basically the same as you would expect them to be, which is a good thing read more
