She removed her lens! Will there be no more chuunibyou now?

Awesome episode. I really doubt she is will stop with the chuunibyou, but now it will be more of a playful thing rather than a armor to protect her from reality.

But this is one of the best romance anime I have seen this year, very cute, very funny and has some serious situations. Perfect balance. 10/10 whole anime.

The confession was so.... lets just say my heart exploded with happiness :3 And their interaction after it, especially with the pinky touch... OLJOIDJFOIAJFOIAJFOIAJJERF. When Rikka took off her lens, i gasped pretty hard. If she does continue the chuuinbyou, its gonna be tough since she wont have her wicked eye o_o and her song... wow

I love this anime so much, its such a feel good anime and adorable. I can't wait for next week :D

...WOOOOOOOOOOOOO THAT WAS AWESOME. I seriously feel like nominating this for episode of the year, it has been so long since I have been left feeling so empty at the end of an episode, I refuse to believe that was 20 minutes. Chuunibyou has gotten better every week so far and honestly that was just an amazing episode. I am going to call it now, show of the season.

This episode was amazing to get some of the drama in Chuunibyou! and Yuuta and Rikka finally confess their love for each other which was great. I was intrigued that Yuuta confessed with the dark flame master. Then there was the funny bit where Kumin rejected Isshiki lol whilst she was asleep so does that really count?

Check out my review down below if you want to see my review of the episode.

Really nicely done episode. Looks like they're a couple now. I like how Yuuta confessed in DFM mode.
I'm pretty sure we'll get to see how Yuuta confronted Rikka next episode, and I wonder if her chuunibyou status will go on.

That was probably one of my favorite episodes. It was tense as hell, and Rikka's and Yuuta's confession was one of the best I've ever seen. If it didn't deserve a 10/10 up until now, it certainly does after this episode.

the episode was perfect until the DRAMA Yuuta should have at least waited until after the festival before asking her to change her lifestyle. I hope normal Rikka is just as good as chuuni Rikka.

Also Hnggggggggg!!! her singing was so cute. Cant wait for next ep now!!!
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 know I already made a response but this episode was awesome. I love the development between Rikkia and Yuuta. But I had no idea that Rikkia could sing.

Meh. Last week was so much better. It wasn't bad but wasn't that great either. Something's missing this week to make this ep as great as last week despite the confession we all longed for..
Maybe Yuuta's confession was just too lame - he didn't really confess - or fighting with Rikka directly after that resulting in that boring cliff hanger. I don't know.. :|

But Nibutani was way more enjoyable the last couple of episodes.

I'm really tempted to raise the score from 9 to 10 but I guess I'll wait until the end. But damn... this is clearly my top5 show. Thank god a good show close to toradora appeared, I'm satisfied with chuuni I must say.

I love this show so much. I hate myself for almost not watching it. Ah, I wonder what will happen to poor Rikka! :(

This episode is probably one of the most funniest episodes in all of Chuunibyou history!!! Problem is... I can't find the part when she took off her lens!!! HAFGsoAHJFAGBJKSDBmadJABF!
I believe that unless you know for sure that you don't like a concept, you should keep exploring it. Whether it be characteristics of people or a genre of some sort, you never know if you don't like it until you've seen quality work corresponding to that genre. Keep exploring until you've found something you enjoy, or something of quality. Then you know what's bad, what's good, and what isn't for you.

Simply put, what a roller-coaster ride of emotions! The confession made my heart explode with happiness! Also, that singing!

Rikka removed her eyepatch! What could it mean? Is this the end of her chuunibyou phase?

Now, I'm confident to say that this series is my favorite for this season!

KyoAni - doing fanservice right since 1981.
Absolutely love their costume design.

Despite how great last episode was, I did have some qualms with this episode. More later when I've gotten over how awesome she looks in that dress.

That was so awesome!! I personally love how Yuuta confessed, and I was happy she confessed first. It was such a great episode.

Also the way Yuuta slapped Isshiki away when he leaned against his shoulders was hilarious.

I'm gonna miss the old Rikka if she really becomes normal now. She's so awesome the way she is.
I am a sucker for romance!!!!

With this episode, Chu2 officially becomes my top(and best) show of this season, above Tonari, and of course, Sakurasou.

The transition between romance, drama and comedy was just ... perfect. I couldn't find any word better than that. The confession scene under the bridge was well delivered, both in character's feelings(the shyness of both girl and boy, when first falling in love) and, the supreme quality of the artworks. Not to mention the atmosphere was greatly fit, with catchy background music + insert song. Furthermore, I really like how Rikka lean her head on Yuuta's back as she was shy, and a pinky finger. She has her own personality, the way she acts is cute, not just her appearance. This is how different between Kyo and other "moe" productions, their characters have souls as well, not just simply moe appearances that make them look cute.

Kyo Ani never fails me, as one of the best contender for romance/drama genre.

This episode is truly enjoyable.

Damn, this was an incredible episode, displaying a distinct absence of any particularly noticeable flaw, even elevating above the fifth and ninth episodes into becoming the absolute best of the show. The noticeable dichotomy between many disparate emotions present throughout the episode illustrated an excellently balanced approach to storytelling, rather than slipping into a particularly disconcerting tonal dissonance. As such, it was a quieter, less boistorous episode, rarely needing words to express their necessary meaning, instead relying on the immensely skilled direction and superb animation to evoke the depth behind certain emotions that suffused the developments within.

My favorite sequence, by far, was Rikka and Yuuta's fantastic confessions. There was a beautiful tranquility that accentuated the emotions within this considerably meaningful development, conveying a restrained sentimentality that was sweetly poignant. The pinky-holding designation of their new "contract" was a great way to conclude the scene, since it perfectly encapsulates both of their personalities. Of course, so did the entire confession, drawing upon numerous elements within their characterization, such as the tendency for Yuuta to willingly slip into his "Dark Flame Master" persona whenever in Rikka's presence, as well as nicely touching on Rikka's inability to directly express her emotions by having her lean her head against Yuuta's back, rather than his chest, as that would lead to further embarrassment. This scene was very well-directed, deftly handling the abundance of romantically simplistic intonations, elevating a mere confession into something much more, superbly conveying the full weight within a plethora of subtle emotions.

The opening sequence was excellent, as Yuuta reflects upon his hug with Rikka, eventually culminating with a longing utterance of her name, only to be amusingly interrupted by Makoto, effectively establishing the romantically whimsical atmosphere that pervaded through the majority of the episode. The subdued colors complemented Yuuta’s introspective reverie really well, contrasting the sunlit scenery from his thoughts. Touka and Yuuta’s conversation was quite revealing, temporarily focusing on their dichotomous approaches to handling Rikka’s adolescent delusions, as she suggests that he should instruct Rikka to mature, finally relinquishing the facade of purposefully oblivious peace that she's, rather understandably, worn for so long.

The final scene served as a very effective conclusion, as Rikka's covered eye was revealed to be, once again, ordinary, no longer containing the golden contact, which I thought was an excellent bit of ominous foreshadowing. Though a dramatic development appeared towards the end of the episode, it certainly didn't feel particularly contrived, but more of a foreshadowed inevitability, drawing upon a plethora of divergent, but eventually harmonious subtleties that have alluded to this possibility. As such, the developments were far more emotionally effective, as they didn't feel artificially forced at all. It will be interesting to see how receptive, if at all, Rikka is towards her mother's sudden appearance, and vice versa, for that matter, since her mother, despite several weak attempts to converse with her, has seemed somewhat detached from Rikka for quite some time.

This episode greatly illuminated the strength of Rikka and Yuuta’s relationship, accentuating the various nuances that have filtered into their increasingly profound connection, comprehensively elaborating on the depth within their mutual feelings, which, in turn, entirely erased the possibility for a seemingly potential, but unlikely, perception, in which their emotions could appear somewhat superficial. As such, their relationship is thoroughly compelling, consistently elevated by their highly enjoyable, chemistry-laden interactions.

Sanae was highly enjoyable throughout, especially notable in the brief, but integral scene in which she comforts Rikka, allaying her confused worries with some surprisingly insightful advice. I also greatly enjoyed Makoto and Yuuta’s moderately helpful conversation that followed, which excellently paralleled Sanae and Rikka’s, even including a second lean onto the other’s shoulder, with hilariously divergent results. I loved the return of Touka and Yumeha’s exaggeratedly realistic reenactments of house. These interactions have effectively portrayed an aspect of Touka’s characterization that has been much less prevalent than others.

Makoto and Kumin's perpetually stalled "relationship" is developing in a very amusing fashion, and I'm hoping they realize a mutually romantic spark between them before the end. Although, I must admit, it doesn't appear to be too likely at the moment, since, though she was asleep, Kumin's immediate rejection was unintentionally brutal. It will be interesting to see how Makoto plans to eventually compel her into some sort of realization.

The direction was very impressive and, along with the aforementioned confession, was also quite striking throughout the momentary bench scene between Yuuta and Rikka, as it framed their significant interactions with a considerably complementary focus on the smallest movements between them, such as their momentary glimpse of one another beneath the fallen umbrella or Rikka gently laying her head against Yuuta's back. Musically, this episode was very good and remarkably appropriate within each scene, especially realized in the use of Miagete Goran Yoru no Hoshi wo, which was an excellent piece to use during the confession. I also loved the wistful selection that accompanied the scene in which Yuuta meets Rikka’s mother. It captured the potentially fragile nature of Yuuta’s newfound romance with Rikka in a fantastic manner, evoking a subtly melancholic atmosphere that permeated Yuuta's internal struggles.

The visuals were fantastic, as there was an abundance of stunning imagery, most evident in the city lights that Rikka and Yuuta fleetingly gazed towards prior to their momentous confession. The animation was amazingly consistent, especially during Yuuta’s aggressive reaction to Makoto’s awkwardly affectionate head lean and throughout the entire confession, illustrating seemingly inconsequential movements and nearly imperceptible expressions with a confident flourish. Also, the rather detailed background art was pretty solid, particularly shown throughout the portion of the episode that tangentially focused on the school festival, as it highlighted a suitably energetic atmosphere.

All in all, Chuunibyou has become one of the best shows of the season and, perhaps, the year, consistently impressing with it's thoroughly beautiful relationship, immensely engaging characters, and the masterful execution of it's narrative. As such, Rikka and Yuuta's romantic development has been woven into the narrative in a thoroughly meticulous and exceptionally satisfying fashion, never lingering on a singularly contrived intricacy or unnecessary distraction from the growth of their feelings for one another. Of course, one of the most narratively beneficial elements in terms of how their relationship is portrayed is that there haven't been any tedious complications that disrupt each subsequent development in their romantic evolution, which would potentially diminish the significance of these emotionally substantial moments. As such, rather than conventionally stretching the confession until the very end of the show, there’s an essential desire to deter from the typical adherence towards an unconvincingly lengthened approach to progressing the relationship, brilliantly avoiding the expected flaws that tend to inevitably creep into romantic comedies, which would effectively depict a sort of fractured narrative, dragging unnecessarily until a marginally unsatisfying conclusion. Instead, it appears that every particular development has been carefully constructed within the confines of a comparatively brief narrative, allowing for a story that rarely, if ever, falters.

Really great and cute episode! Cant wait for next episode and to see Rikka without eye-patch. Just hope her personality don't change to much. I hope the last episodes is this great to and it will be my favorite show of 2012 without competition. ♥
