Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! (中二病でも恋がしたい!)
The main character Togashi Yuuta used to suffer from “Chuunibyou*”.
- Chuunibyou (or “Eighth Grader Syndrome” in English) is a condition that boys and girls in the second year of junior high school tend to have during their puberty period, especially when they have an attitude following lyrics from manga and anime.
Yuuta was looking for a fresh and beautiful high school life to forget the shameful past in junior high school.
Yuuta is getting depressed at the meeting with the girl with Chuunibyou who he really wants to go away from, but because of his friend’s nasty bit of work, he becomes a class president together with the most popular beautiful girl in the class Nibutani Shinka,
He thinks he will finally become satisfied with the real life, which he was looking for, but after that soon, Rikka invites him to make a club of “Far Eastern Magic Society” together.
He wonders why the most popular and beautiful girl in the class joins this club but decides to join the club too.
As we know this later, actually Nibutani also used to get Chuunibyou!!
What will happen to Yuuta surrounded by the one with Chuunibyou and the one who used to have Chuunibyou?
You may think “I know these kinds of romantic comedies a lot”. I also thought so…
Rikka is likely to be seen as a stupid girl with her strange attitude and words, but actually, she has deeper concerns and mental damages than anyone else.
The girl meets someone who understands her condition of Chuunibyou, get more and more friends gradually, and get Yuuta’s kind support, which is drawn firmly and we know how Rikka gets to like Yuuta and how Yuuta also gets to like Rikka directly, as one of this attractiveness.
This is a story that the main character and the heroine are going to be in a relationship which we often see in the others, but you will get into this because how Rikka is grown up by loving someone and nurturing friendship is drawn precisely, although she has a dark past.
Also, other imagining battles, and Chuunibyou-styled weapon setting and technique names appear to make this work more special. (After cool magic and sword appear, how they actually do is also described…which is a bit funny.)
