Before going into Winter 2014’s Chuunibyou season 2, it’s only right to have a review of season 1.
There was a lot of hype surrounding Chuunibyou during the Fall 2012 season, my guess being that it was KyoAni + Ishihara Tatsuya (director, storyboard), who were behind other hit animes K-On!, Air, Clannad, Kanon, Suzumiya Haruhi and many more. This combination promised drama – plenty of drama, revolving around students and how through their daily lives they learn friendship, loyalty, laughter, love which are basically the ingredients of a coming-of-age rom-com anime set against slice-of-life scenarios. Did Chuunnibyou deliver? Oh yes, I’m glad to review it here that it did deliver, very much so.
