Love, Chuunibyou & Other Delusions

Plot: Yuuta Togashi was a classic case of "chuunibyou" -- or 8th-grader syndrome. He called himself the "Dark Flame Master", and even dressed and acted the part. Now, in his first year of high school, Yuuta is determined to put that behind him, going as far as choosing a school where no one would know him. But, of course, burying his old persona isn't that easy, especially when an equally delusional student named Rikka comes into the picture... (B)

Objectionable Content: Some profanity and innuendo

Other: The Japanese title is "Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai". It's a really wacky anime with some darker undertones coming in later. I love they way they deal with the "chuunibyou", which is a lot like "Calvin & Hobbes" in the way the imaginary fight scenes cut away to what's happening in reality. And also, the serious moments are never too depressing, since they're balanced out well with the comedy.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 3/5
