LOVED THIS EPISODE XDDD

NibutanixYuuta ALL. THE. WAY. I can only see Rikka being in a sister-like relationship with Yuuta :/ That is, unless Rikka's eighth-grade syndrome gets cured (or stops for whatever reason) before the end of the season, at which point Yuuta realizes how much he liked her weirdness. But then we find out that Rikka was never a chuunibyou, she's just naturally weird.

dun. Dun. DUUUUUUNNNNNN.

5/5

Gosh watching Nibutani spazz out is so cute xD I know how she feels LOL.

All I got to say after this episode is... Fuck Nibutani!!!!

How can anyone like that bitch right now? She went from being cute and very likable, to my most hated character on the show. I'm sure she becomes more likable at some point.

Totally found the personality swap of Nibutani hilarious and fitting.

I like Nibutani cause she's hot, I don't care what other pp think about her. I also like Rikka's sister and Kumin but I don't like Rikka cause she's so silly *sigh.

Cool to see that Shinka is a more complex character than she originally let on. She's obviously very self-conscious about her chuunibyou, it'll be interesting to see how she deals with it from here on out.

Rikka is still the best. I never really liked Nibutani much from the beginning, is it only me that likes her a LITTLE bit better now? Why does everyone think she's a bitch anyways? Okay, maybe a little. But not everyone can be perfect right lol.

Anyways lol I loved this episode it was so funny.

Don't know why so many people are starting to hate Nibutani just because she has a more interesting personality.

Personally, I find the always nice nice kind of female characters incredibly boring and annoying, so seeing Nibutani have a complete switch of personality was a very nice surprise and should make the character dynamics all the more interesting.

However, Rikka is still number one.

Tonight... we are young... so let's set the world on fire, we can burn brighter, than the sun...

This episode was quite good and highly enjoyable, but it was also probably my least favorite, due largely to how inconsistent it was. The first half was mediocre, while the latter half was excellent, since Nibutani disposed of her "perfect" facade, which allowed for a much more interesting story to take place. Despite this, I recognize the episode as a necessary bridge between Yuuta's superficial attraction of Nibutani and the gradual establishing of his romantic interest in Rikka. Although the story didn't particularly interest me throughout the first half, I felt the episode, as a whole, was paced really well.

Though it was certainly expected, I didn't particularly like that Yuuta chose to join the club solely due to the shallow attraction he has towards Shinka, but this is a rather insignificant complaint. The largest criticism I have is that, due to Shinka being far too prevalent throughout, Rikka, as in the previous episode, seemed to be forced into the role of a secondary character, which doesn't exactly benefit the story, since her interactions with Yuuta are easily the best element of the show. Thankfully, the latter half of the episode strongly allayed my temporary fears that this would turn into the Yuuta-Shinka show, so hopefully the story returns to focusing on the far more engaging and enjoyable dynamic of the relationship between Yuuta and Rikka.

Rikka stumbling upon and consequently becoming embarrassed by Yuuta's dirty magazine was easily my favorite scene in the episode. The humor, for the most part, worked quite well, especially Sanae and Rikka's fantastic interactions. Sanae's enthusiastic admiration towards Rikka is quite amusing. Kumin's also pretty likable, but, unfortunately, she hasn't been given much to do.

Despite it's predictability, I really like that Nibutani was revealed as Mori Summer, due mostly to what that means for Yuuta, since his interactions with "normal" Shinka essentially diminished his character into a one-note repetition. Her separate personality, though intriguing in it's surprising contrast, is pretty unlikable. At least the chuunibyou aspect of Shinka's true self actually gives her dynamic characterization and an interesting personality, since she definitely didn't possess one before. Now that her true motivations have been revealed, it's great that she doesn't appear to have any sort of romantic interest in Yuuta. Hopefully, now that he's been "rejected", he can finally move past his temporary crush on worst girl, which would consequently allow Rikka and Yuuta's relationship to properly develop.

The production values remain consistently impressive, as illuminated by the entertaining end to the episode, in which Shinka and Sanae fight for the book she had written. This brief action sequence was, once again, really well-animated and excellently choreographed. The dynamic facial reactions are depicted particularly well. The altered OP is actually pretty good, since it's no longer "seizure-inducing".

All in all, Chuunibyou, despite it's occasional, but temporary narrative flaws, continues to exceed expectations with it's execution and a thoroughly likable cast of characters. It will be interesting to see which direction the story will take, since the club has been fully assembled. I love that, so far, Rikka appears to be the only one that's romantically interested in Yuuta, and I hope it remains that way. As such, I'm expecting far more focus on Rikka and her gradually developing relationship with Yuuta as the story progresses.

Funny episode nonetheless. Turned out Nibutani did have the eighth grade syndrome, kinda seeing it coming. Overly dramatic battles as usual.

She does get kind of annoying, but I guess this is exactly what they are going for? I don't dig her character design either too, which kind of contributes to it.

Also, doesn't it bother Nibutani that everyone else knows that she has joined the club?

The balls at the end of Sanae's hair look stupid as well.

I don't think that everyone knows that Nibutani has joined their club yet. She doesn't spend much time there and I doubt that she's told anyone.

C'est la vie, in regards to Shinka's personality change. I suppose I can root for Rikka without feeling conflicted now.

Sanae actually won some points with me this episode, though...

Remade OP cool.
Shinka's Chuuni past was totally unexpected ! Even her personality went 180 degrees!
That was quite a shock knowing that she went from the cute idol girl to the other self personality. Might expect some awesome episodes next time now that we have 4 chuunibyou's.
Also, I'd really love to see Dark Flame Master fight and would go all badass on them.
The Art of Shipping is no mere game. It can be small skirmishes to huge nation size wars.
Of course some will claim their ship is the BATTLESHIP but they all do. This is why battles occur because of factions fighting each other to justify their favourite ship.
And thus SHIP to SHIP combat occurs almost anytime even now.
Beware, Threading into the Shipping battlefield will be bloody.... What are you waiting for?

I think that Sanae is okay. It just really irritates me when ever she spins around with those balls at the end of her ponytails. It's just something about her spinning like an idiot that really irritates me. Other than that she's fine.

I knew Nibutani was one of those chuuni people. I honestly didn't think that she would be but her joining the circle is kind of odd... My image of Nibutani completely shattered. :(
Well, this was a pretty decent episode. It was kind of how stubborn Dekomori doesn't believe Nibutani is Mori Summer, even after the fight. It's sad that this series is ONLY 12 episodes long. I want to see the girl in this picture:

When Yuuta explained how he also knows how she feels.(Tried to calm down her down)
She just called him a loser without any thinking.

Don't like Mori Summer, Shinka was way better, personality wise. Now Sanae has overtaken her on my list.

Despite not having much screentime, Kumin is a little bit above rikka by now. Loved her sleeping in that scrifical circle XD and then grabbing onto shinka's leg

Also, Rikka finding Yuuta's porn stash = WIN


Also, I hope in the end, Yuuta confesses to Rikka.... Dark Flame Master style

People don't care for Nibutani as much after this. Though I think those people are overdramatizing the situation. She didn't become unlikeable, maybe not as perfect but she isn't much different than Yuuta. It's just Yuuta is better at putting up with his old side and others like him.

Nibutani is a complete bitch lol this anime doesn't fail to make me laugh good episode.

However I'm going to spoil the show right now with this shocking prediction
Yuuta will some how hurt Rikka by making fun of her or insulting her hobby and to cheer her up by becoming the Dark Flame master once again and then then he confesses his love for her....classic anime story conclusion but the anime funny moments are more than enough to keep me entertained.

Rikka is the best character in this show so far.

If this show is TMOHS, then Rikka would definitely be Haruhi. When her eccentric and alluring personality is on display, the show shines brightest.

In my opinion, this episode was a little weaker than the others because it didn't have enough Rikka. The highlight of the episode was her finding those ecchi magazines under his bed!

Hopefully they amplify the romance between Rikka and Yuuta. It has been largely (but not entirely) missing for the first four episodes. After this episode, I can say I will not be rooting for NibutanixYutta or the harem ending.

Well, I definitely didn't expect Nibutani to have a different personality. I hope she gets development on it. Didn't really like the change of attitude, much to my surprise.

No more seizure OP. I liked having to keep moving my eyes left and right, but it's for the sake of people who can't handle things like that, so it's fine with me.

After seeing the battle at the end, it made me wonder how a battle with Dark Flame Master would look like.

About nibutani i think it's more interesting this way, i mean they can't be all full time chuunibyou like rikka and sanae, and come on guys i think calling her a bitch is a lil bit to harsh, well i don't know about you but i've seen alot more bitchier characters than that.
tuturu~!! (≧◡≦)
