Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai, loosely translated as "Regardless of My Adolescent Delusions of Grandeur, I Want a Date!" is about... well, the title sort of says it all. The main character, Yuuta, acted like a total geek when he was in middle school, waving around fake swords and calling himself the Dark Flame Master. Now he has enrolled in high school leaving his childish ways behind him, or so he thought.
Upon entering high school Yuuta meets a girl named Rikka who claims she wields the "Tyrant's Eye," and is on a quest to find the "Unseen Horizon." As the two form a club and begin to grow closer, Yuuta slowly finds himself reverting back to his old ways.
The story, while it may sound silly, actually gets pretty serious near the end of the series, for better or for worse. I thought the ending played out magnificently and that they wrapped everything up very nicely. For the ending alone I would give this anime a great score.
The animation of this anime was outstanding, perhaps even another level beyond Kyoto Animation's other titles. The moments taking place inside Rikka's imagination were especially well animated, showing off what Kyoani could do if they ever decide to adapt an action-oriented anime.
While the opening and ending themes were nothing special, the background music was very fitting and really engages the viewer in the characters' emotions, particularly in the last few episodes where feelings are at their strongest.
The characters in Chuunibyou, while not necessarily the most creative, were all very likable. Everyone has their own individual personality that helps add to the story and make the entire series a very enjoyable experience. I give Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai a 9/10.
