Dekomori and Nibutani make this anime bearable.

There should be a spin-off dedicated to just the two of them.

Warning this review may contain spoilers-

So this review is for the second series of Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!, I know it is a bit weird for me to do a second series review before the first but this is just me being akward, a small talent of mine. So lets start this, the storyline was detailed but still was light and a bit of fun in a way, there were clear emotional moments which were developed over this series as well as Rikka's and Yuuta's relationship. However these emotional moments were small but still had quite heartwarming moments. To me the style of animation is perfect there was nothing wrong with the character design or the scenery, the detail was amazing.

The music was quite good both the opening and ending were quite catching however not as catchy as the first series. The voice actors were great and they did their job well representing each character >_< Even though there was story development the characters are still left as they finished in the last series except with the new characters. I like how they kept their personalities though, from start to finish each character was different and this to me was really good.

Overall I gave it quite a good score due to the reasons mentioned. If you haven't watched this anime, you should but of course start with the first series.

So let me say even though I am a Libra/Virgo I am not a sucker for romance, but this anime is just to STRONG! 

Im not going to spoil anything but this anime is very "cute" (it kills my masculinity to say that) and you will defend it if any one dare slander it. The story follows chuunibyou which is slang in japanese for 8th grader syndrome, The main charcter being Yuuta who has recently overcome his Chuunibyou and looking forward  to start his highschool life afresh.

spoilers for season 1

At the end of Season 1 Yuuta and Rikka start going out and slowly progress there relationship throughout the whole of season 2 this is where the show hit me in the feels all the unanswered questions are answered and step by step the charcacters develop as well as there relationships. 

I will warn you there are a lot of face-palm moments!

With Shichimiya we're introduced to a new cast member who has a history with Yuuta and  I was expecting a trainwreck to happen but I should have known better. We did get on the train though, it still looked like we were going to get that trainwreck but I guess it just wouldn't have really fit with the vibe of the show. Had certain expectations and I guess I can only blame myself for the show not giving me what I was hoping for.

I guess what I'm trying to say is... It's still a wholesome love story.

Some of the events that happen are a little awkward, especially the episodes regarding Dekomori and Mori Summer. The jokes regarding Isshiki are also extremely cringy. Both situations didn't feel like they really belonged in the series.

Spoilers (Duh)

Historia

Y haciendo de cuenta que la primera temporada nunca paso, seguimos con las estupideces de chicas moe random. Ahora Rikka de enfrenta a una amiga de la infancia de Yuuta para que no se lo vuelen. Igual que en la primera temporada, NO PASA ABSOLUTAMENTE NADA, en los primero 9-10 capítulos, y en los últimos 2-3 encontramos algo de material, aunque no tan rico como el de la primera temporada. Temas que ya he visto muchas veces, el Chunnibyou evita que estas niñas crezcan, muy diferente a la primera temporada donde esto mismo les servía para enfrentar la realidad, y esto hace que pierda su encanto, convirtiendo esto de chicas moe, a chicas moe sin sentido de ser

Personajes

Todo el progreso que Rikka había hecho en la primera temporada, VALIO UN CARAJO. Yo entiendo que su síndrome le da el toque especial a la serie, pero donde dejaron la temporada anterior, no debía seguir igual, pero bueno, ya esperaba algo así. El resto de los personajes no hace ni madres, si rifo la competencia de siestas con Kumin, pero de ahí en fuera no hay más que decir. Estuve a punto de simpatizar con Shichimiya (o como se llame), pero le falto mas backstory para que de verdad me importara.

Final

Ni siquiera es un final, como toda buena comedia romántica, dejaron un final abierto para hacer otras 5819 temporadas y vender cuanto quieran. LOS TIPOS NI SIQUIERA SE BESARON MALDICION.

Producción

  • Animación: Kyoto Animation (Duh)
  • OST: Algunas de las rolas en las escenas de batalla son muy buenas, me recordaron mucho al OST de Madoka Magica
  • Openings y endings: No son extraordinarios, pero si me latieron ambos, vale la pena oírlos, además, la animación del ending es uno de los mejores fan service de la serie.

Veredicto

No esperaba mucho, temía que me pasara como en Infinite Stratos, me gusto tanto que la segunda temporada me dio asco. Es entretenida y ahora, aunque lo hicieron de manera involuntaria en la primera, no me dejo ningún mensaje memorable. Admito que de verdad quisiera una novia tan LOCA DE ATAR como Rikka, pero aparte de eso, no aporta nada.
