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?

Well hello there, Chuunibyou fans! Today we're gonna talk about The Rikka Wars, and boy, do I have some things to say.
First up, the story. It's quirky, it's cute, it's everything you'd expect from a romantic comedy anime. Sure, it's not the most original story out there, but who cares? You're here for the laughs, the tears, and the occasional cringe. And let me tell you, The Rikka Wars delivers.

Now let's talk about the art style. It's bright, it's colorful, it's almost as if someone vomited rainbows all over the screen. And I love it! It's perfect for the tone ...

Well, they did it again, they made an OVA that is better than the whole season in just a single episode. How have they done this twice in a row now! Honestly, I mean it honestly they have a very good episode here which is great from start to finish, and yet they couldn't get this level of enjoyment from the rest of the season.

The art, sound, and characters do not change at all as you would expect.

The enjoyment, however, is greatly improved, I think it is because you don't have enough time to ...

I very much liked S1 and S2. I don't know how they managed to make Yutta and Rikka genuinely unlikeable and dispicable characters in this episode. This series was so nice until this episode.
Right off the bat, the girls are suspicious of Yutta in a way that would be considered extremely toxic for a relationship. Yutta then when found out stubbornly sticks to his coomer brained nonsense. It was just embarassing and this made me dislike both characters.
I have no idea why people like this episode at all but hate s2. It makes no sense. Maybe constantly drama, and toxic mistrust is so common in ...
