Eita Kidou is a man on a mission: he’ll study like crazy to get into medical school, foregoing anything foolish like love along the way, much to his childhood friend Chiwa’s dismay. 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! Eita must now try his best to complete his studies while Chiwa and Masuzu battle it out at every turn for his unrequited affections.
Rikka Takanashi is a teenage girl who possesses the strongest ocular power known to man: the Tyrant’s Eye. She's currently locked in a fierce war with a shadowy organization, and the fate of the world may hang in the balance with each passing battle... or at least this is what she believes. In actuality, Rikka is merely a normal high school girl afflicted with chuunibyou syndrome, a "disease" that makes one prone to delusional flights of fancy. Meanwhile former chuunibyou sufferer Yuuta Togashi is enrolled at the same school, looking to put his embarrassing junior high exploits behind him. However, when Rikka discovers his past life as the "Dark Flame Master", she uses this to her advantage to include him in all of her wacky schemes! With Rikka’s zany behavior dragging him further and further from normalcy, Yuuta must try to pull her back into the real world – or risk getting sucked into hers!
So if you found Eita trying to cover up his embarassing past of pretending he's a wizard slaying dragons or whatever funny, as well as his interaction with Himeka who he supposedly met in a game, then you'll like Chuumibyou. In Chuunibyou demo koi ga Shitai, all the characters are like Eita or Himeka. Chuunibyou has less of a harem factor but the romance is still there and overall is a great series!
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
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.
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 .
I agree that if you liked Oreshura (as it's titled on Crunchyroll), you should like Chuunibyou. However, I do not necessarily recommend it the other way. If you liked Chuunibyou for it's typical KyoAni happy philosophical ending, you won't be very happy with the ending of Oreshura at all! In fact, I hated the ending of Oreshura, if the show would've ended like 9 minutes and 6 seconds earlier it would've been okay.
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.
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
Kodaka is a delinquent. At least, that’s what his fellow classmates seem to think. Thanks to his naturally-blonde hair and an unfortunate series of misunderstandings, the boy can’t seem to shake his false reputation and hasn’t made a single friend. That is, until one day he overhears the normally-aloof Yozora enthusiastically chatting with an imaginary friend, and discovers that she’s just as lonely as he is! In an attempt to finally meet people the duo decides to form the “Neighbors Club”, and are soon joined by a number of other fellow misfits such as Sena, the busty, popular daughter of the school president who can’t seem to connect with others. Together, the gang learns about the joys of friendship through many misadventures such as playing RPGs, visiting the swimming pool or even hunting down delicious takoyaki!
If you like school life, a main character/protagonist who’s stuck with weird/eccentric girls then this an Anime for you. Both animes are extremely similar stories (Guy gets sucked or tricked into joining a School Club for "reasons" and has to deal with a bunch crazy Girls who have ulterior motivates). Both have romance, comedy, and little bit of drama.
If you liked one you'll probably end up liking the other!
If you enjoy Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!, The World God Only Knows, or Problem Children From Another World, you will definitely enjoy either of these anime. They all have a similar feel to them, as if the produers drew from a hat to choose who took what.
Not only is the setup similar, "harem of extremely odd females fighting over the guy," but the level of emotional engagement of the male protagonist is similarly low. Neither main character seems to react overly strongly to the obvious feelings of the girls around him. Lots of fluff & little substance.
If you like a show about a group of girls who are trying (hilariously) to make themselves more appealing to boys so they can get a boyfriend, then look no further. Biggest difference is that in OreShura, they're all fighting over the same guy. Similar comedy and themes, these two will appeal to a similar audience.
