(Synopsis) Have you ever had such an embarrasing past, where you would do whatever it takes to hide and forget it? Follow the life of Yuuta Togashi, a former victim of "chuunibyou" or the "Eighth-Grade Syndrome, who will do anything to forget his persona as the "Dark Flame Master. However, he meets a current "Chuunibyou" named, Rikka Takanashi, as he enters High School. Yuuta now struggles to keeps his past a secret, but with Rikka with him, its almost impossible. Will Yuuta accoplish his goal, or will he be overcomed by "Chuunibyou" once more?

Review

(Story) Chuunibyou starts off as an ordinary slice of life/school life type with everyone fitting into the plot that is to come. The main plot contains deep emphasis on the main characters, pertaining to the characters main problem, and a external problem that is very in-depth that is unique to a comedy show like this.

(Animation) The animation of Kyoto Animation never fails to disappoint, as they input really great animation that feels refreshing with great colors, flawless movement, and amazing "action" scenes. Animation does really well in all categories when it transitions from a comedic scene to an emotional scene as they change the atmosphere fitting to the scene being played. The Openings and Endings of Chuunibyou are really well animated and very memorable. They both are unique towards other anime out there.

(Sound) Sound is really well fitted in Chuunibyou with a light-hearted soundtrack. Some songs played throughout the series fit well to the scene atmosphere making a more emotional impact towards the viewer watching. The Openings and Endings of Chuunibyou are absolutely marvelous, with ZAQ's "Sparkling Daydream" and Black Raison's "INSIDE IDENTITY". They both are amazing songs that fit the style of the show perfectly.

(Characters) Each character introduced in Chuunibyou are really entertaining and their chemistry together is absolutely hilarious. The Main Characters have their inside stories that are really in-depth (refer to the story section) Although the secondaries have little background and basically only have several traits that are obvious towards the viewer. I'm not one to complain, since its only a 12 episode series with a second season coming up in Jan. 2014.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I was very impressed and satisfied with Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai with its great story, flawless animation, fitting sound, and enjoyable characters. Although this anime a little under the radar for anime-watchers, this is a great recommendation for anyone who is interested in any type of genre. I am very excited for the premiere of the second season that will be coming on Janruary 8th 2014, and a review that will be coming in the future. I give Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai a 9.1 out of 10.
