When Mizuki Hijiri transferred to a new school, all she wanted was to live a normal school life, but that did not prove to be the case when she met the infamous Hero Club. All of its members are boys suffering from various types of chuunibyou—Yamato Noda is a righteous hero, using his athletic abilities to perform noble deeds and protect others; Kazuhiro Nakamura claims to be the reincarnation of "Touga Ryushouin," the result of the forbidden union between a demon and an angel; Tomoki Takashima is a pretty-boy otaku whose one true love is the 2D anime girl Sora; and Rei Tsukumo plays the role of a schemer, covertly pulling the strings.
Dragged along as the newest member of the Hero Club, tepid Hijiri can't obtain the normalcy that she desires. But even so, despite their various quirks, their bonds of friendship are real; Hijiri's life can only get more exciting when she joins in on their delusions of grandeur!
Who thought that making an anime based on a 3-minute song would be a good idea?
Well, whoever did, they were right. It's really damn funny.
The art may not be the best but it's much better than what I expected it to be. Usually, when you watch these kind of anime that lie on the bottom of the popularity barrel each season, you can easily grow accustomed to uhh.. "lacking" animation and, of course, shortened lenght.
I knew and really liked the song (especially the MafuMafu x Soraru version, look it up), so when I first saw this anime announced, I expected it to have like 3-minute
episodes. Well, here we are, at the standard 20-minute lenght, and I must say that the writers know how to use the time correctly.
The music is fine, it uses the original song as its OP but I certainly wouldn't call it the best cover. The ending is really nice though!
The characters are what you would expect. We have the straight (wo)man who reminds us that the whole show is, in fact, not actually about fighting demons but about having fun with the people you like.
And that's why I think I enjoy it this much. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't really do anything new and might come across as generic to some people, but it's some nice make-you-feel-good fun.
There's a large amount of anime where there's a bunch of chuunibyou characters, and most of them tend to be female characters, and usually directed towards the male audience. For one thing, this anime reminded me a lot of Konosuba, since the boys are very similar to Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness as they all have a kind of chuunibyou complex, acting grander than they really are, which isn't a bad thing. However, Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy puts a refreshing spin on that aspect, giving an entire group of bishie boys that grandiose character.
Chuubyou Gekihatsu is one of the funniest anime put out by Sentai Filmworks, centered
around five boys with a chuunibyou complex, part of their club called the Hero Club. The main character girl does her best to live her everyday school life around these boys, and has many funny moments in between. Each of the boys' personalities is hilariously eccentric, displaying their traits in the clearest way, and hradly faltering in character. The boys aren't always just eccentric however, they do have moments when they really group together and connect in order to solve some problem in each episode, or simply to encourage other characters to get in their Hero Club. Seeing the grandiose complex in a bunch of guys may be funnier than you think.
Art: 8/10 Sentaii Filmworks brings us great art as always. The animation and art is clear, and very colorful, even for just a comedic anime. The characters all look unique, and not bland at all.
Story: 7/10 Given the anime is a comedic school life anime, it is pretty average in story line, with the anime being about the lives of the boys and main character girl, with a few side characters. Nothing too special to say.
Sound: 8/10 I love the soundtrack that plays at random moments when one of the characters is being dramatic and displaying their "power". Especially when Nakamura has a scene where he's "battling" with his demon side and having a "tragic" moment. I put quotes around those words since it's really just him being dramatic, but in the most hilarious way. A classical organ piece comes up, and I even heard Air On G by Bach at one point lol.
Character: 9/10 The characters are so unique in general and within the story. Yes, they all have the chuunibyou complex, but they go through it in different ways. The synopsis has all the traits of their complex.
Enjoyment/Overall: 9/10 I enjoy this show so much. I haven't watched such a funny anime in a while. This anime REALLY gives me Konosuba vibes which is all the more hilarious.
If you like funny, Konosuba-vibe kind of anime, then I HIGHLY recommend watching Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy. It'll leave you wanting to watch more, and have you laughing all throughout.
This is weirdly interesting for me haha. Something different than the usual school anime. It's as if instead of going with the usual formula, we're getting a weird side to it. Which actually makes this show stand out more. It would've been boring if it was the usual common school anime that so many others have done beforehand. So it'll always stick in your mind even after viewing it and finishing it down the line if you go through with it.
So should you watch? I'd say give it a shot! It's weirdly interesting honestly, something different that might field towards your tastes. As who knows,
you may end up really enjoying it! I'm certainly gonna keep watching to see what other whacky things happen. So you should too!
