Although already a third-year high school student, Rikka Takanashi remains a chuunibyou—a "disease" that causes people to fantasize about themselves and their surroundings. Her relationship with Yuuta Togashi has also gone unchanged for the past six months, and with entrance exams right around the corner, both of them strive to enroll at the same college. However, Tooka—Rikka's elder sister—decides to take Rikka to Italy as she has found a stable job there. This unforeseen turn of events causes a commotion between the couple as neither of them want to be separated from each other. Desperate for ideas, they seek assistance from their friends, and after a brief conversation, they come up with a plan—to elope.

Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Movie: Take On Me is a sensational drama featuring the couple—Yuuta and Rikka—as they journey across Japan. The two attempt to prevent Rikka from being taken to Italy, but will they be able to succeed in doing so?

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

Good Vibrations: The Undervalued Artistry of an Anime’s Soundscape

Sometimes we get so caught up in the visual spectacle of anime that we completely forget about the equally important sounds that come alongside it.
