Haha. That would be great if that's true. Love triangle! Then again Kumin seems pretty oblivious to it all so it's kind of one-sided right now :(

On another note, I'm finding Nibutani to be more likeable as a character now; didn't expect her to voluntarily play Cupid given her usual arduous personality.
Personally, I'm not surprised with her role. Yeah, she was too uptight with her "normalization", but she was supposed to be all about love before. Even if she dropped the delusions, her being still a believer of "the power of love" makes sense.

Hell no.
Nibutami going for Isshiki; I hope that never happens. In previous episodes, she looked kind of jealous, but didn't she group Isshiki with Kumin on this episode.

One of the sweetest episode so far, damn the last scene, when Rikka called yuuta name so many times and teared up, that feeling I think, it was mixed with a sense of relief , she felt secure when being with yuuta after the incident.

So officially from a pure comedy the show changes itself, into a romance comedy, at least that was what I expected after seeing KOI in the anime title. Good job there Kyo Ani. And I hope it will continue down this path until the end.

After this incident, I'm curious how things will change between the two.

Btw, its not logical that the school allows students to hang around dangerous place like that.

Great episode, it went full romcom and made it work well.

My only qualm is that it kinda didn't follow the last scene from last episode where Rikka was calm while watching Yuuta sleeping (made me think she had figured it out)... it was basically as if that hadn't happened... oh well...


I totally agree. That was wierd

Not sure about that, beacuse the reason she has been avoiding Yuuta is precisely that she is kind of scare and confuse of what she is feeling.

Things moved a lot faster than I thought they would. Looks like we might be getting some consolidation on the relationships before this anime ends. I like how when he saved her it's just like how she normally goes down to his floor. Nice little details here and there.

A little disappointed in this episode, the pacing was just so horrible.

Nibutani suggests that she reveal her feelings for Yuuta, but being the young naive chuunibyou that she is rejects her advice and asks her to leave her alone. But then the next scene she's reading Nibutani's Cosmo Magazine about "How to get THAT boy to like you?"

What's with this? No discussion on why she'll do it? Where's the struggle? Isn't it a little OUT of character for somebody that's perceived to be a weirdo that believes she lives in a fantasy world to suddenly have the 'hots' for Yuuta for no reason at all?

Besides that, this show is still my favorite airing right now . But the forced romance ruined the immersion the show was trying to create. I've had high hopes for this show after watching what they did with episode 6. But... after seeing this I just don't know.

What are you talking about exactly? This anime revealed already that Rikka has normal behavior sometimes, and she has feelings, she's not an animal... and she is so embarassed that she did tried to reveal her love in a "Rikkas's way" and yet everything went wrong. And she did strugled, you probably missed it?

Stating somebody would be acting "out of CHARACTER" for being overly romantic for no reason at all does not mean I'm trying to say she's an "animal".

Rikka young, it's stated she's never been in love/had a boyfriend, and she's obsessed with magical spells and the Ethreal Horizon. Don't you think it's a little weird for a character that's portrayed in this light to suddenly want to be in a relationship with no explanation what so ever?

All KyoAni had to do was have Rikka say, "OKAY.. I'll try to do it..." Leaving that part out confused the viewers due to Rikkas drastic change in character.

Not sure about that, beacuse the reason she has been avoiding Yuuta is precisely that she is kind of scare and confuse of what she is feeling.

But that's it, she didn't seem scared or confused at the last part. What I'm saying is that it would have followed better if last episode had ended when Rikka was restless in the bed.

The scene where she knelt beside his bed, lovingly parted the hair on his face and said his name gives a different message... If she had then felt once again her heartbeat race making her leave his room confused, it would be a different story, but we didn't get to see anything like that. So there's either something missing or something extra and out of place in the narrative. IMO anyway.

Wow, this was definitely the best episode yet, as it brilliantly focused on the inevitable realization of the significance behind Rikka's feelings for Yuuta. It was particularly exceptional in it's execution, weaving a plethora of comedic moments into the thoroughly romantic nature of the episode. The atmosphere within this episode was of a more lighthearted tone, illuminating a rather effective contrast, but logical progression, from the last two episodes, as, for the most part, the developments that occurred throughout were displaying the establishment of a seemingly whimsical romance, rather than the dramatic touches that pervaded through the last two episodes.

The final sequence was amazing; easily my favorite moment in this episode, since it satisfyingly portrayed the momentous culmination of every specific romantic development that had transpired between them over the course of the show, and, in particular, these last two episodes. The scene in which Shinka devises a plan with her helpful guidebook for love and Rikka's failed attempts to faithfully adhere to it's wisdom was hilarious. I also really liked Rikka's brief conversation with Kumin, as it illustrated how helplessly and confusingly captivated she had become towards Yuuta, even mentioning that she found it difficult to look into his eyes, which was a nice touch.

Another one of my favorite sequences is the moment Rikka touched Yuuta's hand, interwoven with Shinka's perceptive understanding that the emotional quandaries Rikka had been struggling with are wholly representative of love, eventually resulting in an extremely flustered Rikka running away from Yuuta. This romantic interaction was heightened in effectiveness by the excellent direction and, as already mentioned, Shinka's words of insight into the true state of Rikka's unrealized feelings. As such, Rikka and Yuuta's dynamic continues to be the best element of the show, as their relationship has been suffused with beautifully simplistic, but poignant development throughout the last few episodes, highlighted even further by their superb chemistry and highly enjoyable interactions.

I really enjoyed the portrayal of Rikka's emotional struggles and vague indecision, as all these numerous reactions felt perfectly suited to her previous characterization. Of course, these moments were elevated to a greater level of satisfaction due to the manner with which they were used, since, rather than predictably stalling essential development from occurring, it was only ever meant as a very temporary sort of visual insight into the significance of her altered emotions.

Shinka was at her best throughout this episode, as her love advice to Rikka was unexpected, but thoroughly great. She has certainly become much more likable than she was initially. As such, her characterization is gradually transitioning into an entirely comprehensive acceptance of her chuunibyou inclinations, since, though still occasionally obstinate to the idea, she's gone so far as to quit her role as a cheerleader, which, though quite overshadowed by the other developments, was a rather meaningful and welcome change in her characterization.

The narrative progress, especially in regards to the romantic development, is exceptionally good, never detrimentally faltering into a dull monotony, rarely lingering on tedious or uninteresting situations. One of the greatest aspects of the narrative is that it hasn't, so far, been thoroughly weakened by the unnecessary inclusion of love rivals, absurd misunderstandings, or contrived complications. Instead, it excellently focuses on the natural, immensely compelling development of a singular relationship, while also filtering engaging secondary characters into each episode without sacrificing nuanced character or relationship development, thus creating a highly impressive balance between the many elements within the story. Really, though somewhat restrained in it's ambitions, this is fully indicative of a masterful sort of narrative execution.

The direction was really strong throughout, especially in the final sequence, as the deft movement of the camera allowed for a subtle accentuation of the various emotions that permeated Rikka and Yuuta's hug, evoking a wonderful sensation of wistful sentimentality. Visually, this episode, similar to all the others, was thoroughly creative and incredibly detailed, most evident in Shinka's initial conversation with Rikka, as well as the entirety of the final sequence, from the sunset to Rikka and Yuuta's final hug. The animation, though always great, was especially fantastic throughout several sequences, such as Touka's acrobatic leap over Yuuta and Yuuta's confrontation with Rikka and Sanae in the forest. Musically, this episode was very good, especially the selection that accompanied the moment Rikka delicately touched Yuuta's hand. The soft piano illuminated the deeply romantic atmosphere wonderfully.

All in all, Chuunibyou has been consistently satisfying, excelling with it's really well-developed romance, the very likable characters, and the nearly faultless execution of the narrative. I'm really looking forward to the next episode, and the remainder of the story, for that matter, since I'm expecting a gradual evolution of Rikka's character, as she could potentially be motivated to purposefully diminish her chuunibyou tendencies in a rather substantial manner, perhaps as an eventual result of her newly realized affections for Yuuta. Really, even during a season that's filled with an abundance of romantic comedies, this is easily the best of it's comparative nature all year, as this episode essentially solidified it's elevation beyond the terrific Ano Natsu.

Dam, I thought this was a 24 episode show.
I totally forgot about the title of the anime in English.

Was a spot on episode with some great comedic and melting your heart moments.
Nibutani was also pretty awesome this episode.

Definitely agrees with all of this. It is by far, the best anime for this season. Sadly if Sakurasou had followed Chu2 with its main pairing only theme, it would have been in the runnings as well...., but we all know how that went lol

I didn't saw any drastic change on Rikka, she was just following Nibutani's help since she was confused and wanted to be helped the rest was just love instinct.

I couldn't agree more about this episode. At first I thought that this was going to be some generic shounen comedy but this has turned out to be much more. The characters are being well developed - especially Rikka and Yuuta - and everyone of those characters are likable and funny in their own way.

This is definitely one of my favorite shows of the season.

Rikka headbutt ftw.

I love it when Nibutani reverts to her old self, butterflies starts to flocks around her when she speaks of love.
Maybe she really is in fact, the goddess of love.

My only qualm is that it kinda didn't follow the last scene from last episode where Rikka was calm while watching Yuuta sleeping (made me think she had figured it out)... it was basically as if that hadn't happened... oh well...

I totally agree. That was wierd

Not sure about that, beacuse the reason she has been avoiding Yuuta is precisely that she is kind of scare and confuse of what she is feeling.

But that's it, she didn't seem scared or confused at the last part. What I'm saying is that it would have followed better if last episode had ended when Rikka was restless in the bed.

The scene where she knelt beside his bed, lovingly parted the hair on his face and said his name gives a different message... If she had then felt once again her heartbeat race making her leave his room confused, it would be a different story, but we didn't get to see anything like that. So there's either something missing or something extra and out of place in the narrative. IMO anyway.


She didn't hold back her feelings that time last episode, but this episode she now realizes that she has to hold back that feeling since she mentioned it goes out of control whenever she makes contact with Yuuta.

A little disappointed in this episode, the pacing was just so horrible.

Nibutani suggests that she reveal her feelings for Yuuta, but being the young naive chuunibyou that she is rejects her advice and asks her to leave her alone. But then the next scene she's reading Nibutani's Cosmo Magazine about "How to get THAT boy to like you?"

What's with this? No discussion on why she'll do it? Where's the struggle? Isn't it a little OUT of character for somebody that's perceived to be a weirdo that believes she lives in a fantasy world to suddenly have the 'hots' for Yuuta for no reason at all?

What are you talking about exactly? This anime revealed already that Rikka has normal behavior sometimes, and she has feelings, she's not an animal... and she is so embarassed that she did tried to reveal her love in a "Rikkas's way" and yet everything went wrong. And she did strugled, you probably missed it?


Stating somebody would be acting "out of CHARACTER" for being overly romantic for no reason at all does not mean I'm trying to say she's an "animal".

Rikka young, it's stated she's never been in love/had a boyfriend, and she's obsessed with magical spells and the Ethreal Horizon. Don't you think it's a little weird for a character that's portrayed in this light to suddenly want to be in a relationship with no explanation what so ever?

All KyoAni had to do was have Rikka say, "OKAY.. I'll try to do it..." Leaving that part out confused the viewers due to Rikkas drastic change in character.


When she peeked her head at Nibutani after running away shows that she is interested in accepting her help to explore the love concept.

This series is the only series in this season that i would not get bored from watching an episode twice, heck i could even re-watch all the good moments and keep on looping them while staring at the screen giggling.

I must say, kyoani did a good job so far, i hope they keep up the standards in the last 3 episodes!

That last scene was so..so..cute. I can't find the right word, but I so giddy and happy, and smiling like a fool.

Rikka x Yuuta are so cute together. I wonder who'll confess first.. hope its Yuuta : )

That hug scene really was a great scene, and calling each others names. So cute!!!
I am a sucker for romance!!!!
