In the distant past, Miguel, the God of Destruction, was sealed inside the knight who ruled over light and darkness, Sturmhurt. Alongside the knight was Gestöber, who accompanied him through countless battles. In the present day, destiny causes them to reincarnate as Kabuto Hanadori and Seri Koyuki, two classmates.

Their reunion should be a joyous moment, if not for the fact that these fantasied heroes are just products of Kabuto's delusions. As the fictional "Gestöber," Seri finds himself in various embarrassing situations due to Kabuto's antics that sometimes grow out of his control. Moreover, his classmate Utsugi Tsukimiya joins the fray with his absurdly accurate mind-reading abilities, slowly destroying Seri's social life.

Seri tries hard to stay away from them, refusing to acknowledge their shenanigans, however with Kabuto's chuunibyou and Utsugi's unpredictability, he is only bound to be swept by the craziness coming his way.

As a fan of SOL anime, one of the things I look forward to is that one great comedy-focused anime that comes out every season and I'm glad to say I found it in this one.

Boku no Tonari ni Ankoku Hakaishin ga Imasu is a very traditional comedy anime, it heavily focuses on punchlines as the main way of presenting its jokes yet somehow it doesn't get repetitive. At times it may seem overused but I never felt the need to close the episode or drop the anime while watching. On the contrary, I found myself laughing multiple times during certain episode and that ...

This anime is about 3 kids. 1 is like an upgraded version of Rika. And by upgrade I mean even more delusional, not better. He is in love with the supposed main character for some reason. The Main character is a masochist that likes to blame everyone for his shortcomings when he is the one to blame for having the temperament of a bob-omb. He almost literally explodes in fits of rage at the chuunibyou character. His indecisiveness makes him the most unlikable character in the show. Lastly there is the God of the show. He can hypnotize people with his eyes and read the ...

To have a show like this mirror last season's surprisingly good Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy in all aspects (plot and character) and with 100% inspired accuracy, needless to say I'm always quite skeptical of the chuunibyou gag formula at the start, and come out feeling satisfied at the end. Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy did it to me last season, and this show is largely more of the same.

The extents of Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy and this show play down the same game: a non-existent plot about the MC wanting to get some quietness out of life, and in comes the eccentric "otherworldly" boys playing around in their own ...
