But when the mysterious Masuzu delivers a questionable "confession" to him one day, Eita’s studious life becomes much more complicated. For the girl equally despises love and has stolen his middle school notebook to hold him hostage as her "fake boyfriend", in an attempt to keep other men at bay!

Both anime have School life, Club full of interesting characters, and a guy who cant seem to catch a break!  Both have the guy who used to be weird in middle school aka the delusional guy who thought he lived in another world.. He eventually "grows up" in high school when he gets sucked back in by a girl who has ulterior motives and now has to deal with a bunch of problems aka girls. 

If you like school life, comedy (delusional kid that gets blackmailed), romance, sprinkled by a little bit of drama then both of these animes are made for you.

Yuuta Togashi suffered from chuunibyou while he was in middle school. When he graduated, he put that dark history behind him and forgot about it... or he was supposed to. High school was smooth sailing and full of enjoyment - until the unavoidable, sad event occurs. The event that locks Yuuta into a contract with Rikka Takanashi and disrupts his desperately ordinary life. Adapted from the back of the first novel

KingArthur13th KingArthur13th says...

Both of the main characters in these two anime seemed to have suffered from Chuunibyou in their past and it has come back to haunt them as they try and live a normal life. Both main characters have to not only deal with their embarrassing past but also with a group of fairly awkward females.

Ambition Ambition says...

150%. I swear these shows are like siblings... crazy. If you enjoy one, you will enjoy the other.

           amazing animes with great story and unexpected events happen there :D , recommended badly .

snivets snivets says...

Chuunibyou is the biggest common link between these two shows, as is the harem/high school setting. Both are pretty typical, and do little to deviate from the norms of their shared genre.

AnimeBaller22 AnimeBaller22 says...

Eita, err, I mean BURNING FIGHTING FIGHTER, can easily relate to the Dark Flame master. This anime is the same in many ways, including the 8th grade syndrome, romance styple, and character traits.

About the same feel both great anime both about a crazy main female character that is saved by a border line as crazy male character one has more romance 

Beyond the Boundary

Beyond the Boundary

In a world where supernatural beings known as youmu are hunted by Spirit World Warriors, Akihito lives an eventful life. He’s a half-breed from a human mother and a youmu father, and is immortal - a fact that saves his life on a regular basis, for his bespectacled classmate Mirai can’t seem to stop stabbing him in the chest. She’s a Spirit World Warrior with the power to control her blood, which she manifests into a sword; and with low self esteem about her abilities to hunt youmu, Mirai constantly uses Akihito as target practice. In hopes of being left alone, Akihito must now help Mirai gain confidence to take down sinister youmu.

Bradalee Bradalee says...

With both shows being made by Kyoto Animation the aesthetic similarities between them are obvious from the moment they begin. The character designs follow the same "cutesy with weird legs" designs that most recent KyoAni shows have, their mannerisms are also similar.

And while Kyoukai no Kanata is looking like being a much more serious show than Chuunibyou, the premise in both see's a male character dragged into all sorts of problems by a strange, socially awkward female lead. And while each show has a mix of comedy and drama, it seems liek KnK will be leaning towards the dramatic side more than Chuunibyou ever did, with it instead focusing on comedy more often than not.

It's extremely likely that fans of one will find the other enjoyable.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

While the plots of these show are quite different with Chuuibyou being a school life comedy and Beyond the Boundary being about hunting supernatural beings, both anime have a lot in common. These are both shows with fluid animation, top notch art, moe character designs, a similar sense of humor and even very similar characters.

Both anime are about a guy getting dragged into various situations by a socially awkward girl. The situations in Beyond the Boundary are more serious and often dangerous, whereas the situations in Chuuibyou are mostly comedic. However, in both anime the socially awkward girl does lead to a lot of comedic social situations for the guy.

Despite one being a comedy both anime have well animated fight sequences. In Chuuibyou these fights are all in the character's heads whereas in Beyond the Boundry the fights are real.

Despite the differences in plot and tone of the show these show share a ton of styistic similarities and if you liked one then you should check out the other.

carmine01 carmine01 says...

They have a realy good animation beside the Beyond the Boundary they have a realy interesting dark story,after all the specialist from this anime is the graphic of the animation from kyoto animation that's we know they alway's put some's moe2(cute) thing was being mixed with a great action and a great supernatural combination that's can make you feel a new great experience from this anime, and for another one that's Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai! they have a good animation too but the different is just from the stories in this anime make some good stories like K-on! but still can't beat the sensation of K-on! i think,but that we know the good between love stories and the club is realy more to be cool one . . .

Rastamepas Rastamepas says...

Need a new dose of KyoAni animation and character design? Don't look any farther. Both of these shows have your vary similiar cutesy KyoAni character design with a pretty decent background of art and animation that goes along with it. While both tend to have similiarities in art and design they are very different in regards to story.

Beyond the Boundary tends to focus more of supernatural and action while Chuunibyou tends to be more comedy and fantasy based. Both have a male lead who is randomly pulled into situations by the female lead. While Beyond the Boundary tends to be a little more serious Chuunibyou has a more comedic approach to them

Chances are if you like classic KyoAni looks and a fantasy/supernatural story you'll like both of these anime.

RamkoX12X RamkoX12X says...

The female protagonists are fairly similar based off their character structure as someone that is different from most. They are taken in by a mature male who watches over them, making sure they are able to adjust to life the right way. So the characters are fairly similar. Both are animated by Kyoto Animation, so the art style is really similar and the atmosphere as well. So if you liked one, you will surely love the other.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

To start off both are made by the same studio so have quite a similar style of art. Both include a main female character who is above normal in a way and a male who is trying to control the female lead...also both animes have a group of main characters which is pretty similar. Quite a bit of each are based in a school, even though beyond the boundary is more about the fantasy. Anyway both are really good in storyline, characters and drama!

theocatsman theocatsman says...

Both shows share similarities in both animation and storytelling, with each of the characters having a more dramatic reasoning behind all of the silly shenanigans that they get into. Both pull at your heartstrings near the end of the series and leave you wanting more. They are both beautiful and endearing succinctly told stories.

snivets snivets says...

The female leads in both Denpa Onna and Chuunibyou remind me a lot of each other--wacky antics that teeter on the edge of sanity. Each show's female character is complemented by a male main character who wants nothing more than to live a normal school life, but is torn between that and each one's desire to help the girl "recover" from her bizarre mental state.

seine seine says...

Both of the main characters find themselves dealing with major otaku of some time despite the fact that they want to live a normal high school life. Their lives become filled with crazy antics.

Madoka Madoka says...

Both Denpa Onna and Chuunibyou are actually quite similar in the way they tackle progression within (Denpa Onna is one of my favourite anime because its characters). Both Erio (Denpa onna) and Rikka (chuunibyou) are rather unique individuals wether its spending your life wrapped in a futon thinking you are a alien (or was abducted by aliens), or you just wander round town screeming jiberish about magic powers - both are sorta... insane, not in a negative way, just very funny due to weird habbits in which they both seem to rely upon the main male protag to help them adapt into normal society - much to ones distaste as both just want to enjoy a normal school life and enjoy their youth. Both anime compliement progression well and make the characters very cute and loveable, with somewhat unclear interest developing between one another as the story moves on.

Bronia Bronia says...

Both shows are strikingly similar, but different enough that you're not watching the same story twice.

The male leads both strive for a normal school life, but have this goal interrupted by an eccentric moe girl. The series' both focus on the guy and he tries to "fix" or at least attempt to understand this girl, all the while balance other friendships, generally with equally moe and beautiful girls.

Denpa focuses more on the home life of Erio and Makoto, while showing social and emotional repercussions of Erio's eccentricities. Chuunibyou focuses on the school lives of Rikka and Yuuta and their club, while shedding more light on backstory of the "Eighth Grader Syndrome."

JAhU JAhU says...

The plot of both series revolves around a high school boy dealing with a delusional girl. Both feature a fair amount of comedy, a little bit of drama and some romance (though in case of Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko it's just a little bit).

I can also add, that male leads in both of those shows are kind of cool in their own way. Anyway, if you liked one of those anime, odds are you might like the other one too, because they're similar in many ways.

Fargo Fargo says...

Both of these animes feature a laid-back, well-minded protagonist  that has their life changed when they meet this crazy, unique girl that has an unusual motivation in her living style. Both girls form clubs to accommodate their unusual interests and serve as the central focus for their respective animes' casts. If you're in the mood for a light-hearted anime that dips in the comical and unusual, these two animes are for you.

ashman711 ashman711 says...

both shows feature an unusual female lead character getting  the "normal" male protagonist to go along with thier schemes. the side characters are all fairly unusual in both shows(bit better developed in chuunibyou). if you like the zany unpredictable laugh out loud moments of one, you're sure to like the other.

Highschool guy meets weird highschool girl, together they start a club that searches weird things - joined by other hot girls. 

Kotoura-san

Kotoura-san

Haruka Kotoura has had a psychic ability to read minds since she was born, but her inability to grasp that she's different has led her to be ostracized by every friend she's made. When she meets Manabe, she can't help but be surprised - when he's not imagining strange creatures dancing through the desert, the boy is a hopeless pervert and makes no attempt to hide his dirtiest fantasies. What's more, Manabe isn't driven away by Kotoura seeing his thoughts, and even goes out of his way to befriend her - seemingly because he enjoys thinking of the girl erotically and seeing her subsequent embarrassment! Before long, the once-lonely girl even meets other students who aren't pushed away by her abilities. Could this be the start of a normal school life, with real, lasting friends for Kotoura?

Balzack Balzack says...

Both in a high school setting, and they both possess a similar amount of moe cuteness with female leads that are downright adorable.  They're also both incredibly funny.  Kotoura-san is a little bit more ecchi than Chu-2 but neither are all that inappropriate.

Fargo Fargo says...

Both of these anime follow the story behind a cute girl who's a social outcast until their lives change by meeting their respective male leads. The animes follow their misadventures as they experience friendship, romance, drama, and coming to terms with who they are as people.

MagicalGirlKaori MagicalGirlKaori says...

Both series, filled with supernatural events/imagination, involve being outcast from society and being able to be yourself, whoever you are whether it be someone with eighth-grade syndrome or a mind-reader.
