I’m quite amused at the whole Chunnibyou phenomenon and how these kids use it to deal with complex puppy love and crush issues. It’s really quite cute ^^ Continue reading

Aww… that was such a sweet episode~ all that blushing and awkwardness. These 2 kids are just so shy it’s so sweet to watch them move closer to each another slowly bit by bit, as much as the Dark Flame Master and the Tyrant Eye’s contract that binds them allows!  Continue reading

An innocent… Queenmaker 「無垢なる・・・ 生徒会長選挙 (クイーンメーカー)」

Screen Shot 2014-02-28 at 2.17.12 am

After the formal introduction of a possible love rival to main couple Yuuta and Rikka, one would normally expect the next episode to further that story line. Instead, the spotlight moved to supporting characters Shinka and Dekomori this week, the other lovable duo in Chuunibyou. Nibutani Shinka aka Mori-Summer is running for student council president and for a moment there, I honestly thought she had the chances to win! Because her eternal nemesis Dekomori (first year representative – must have quite a bit of influence among the freshmen) was actually helping her run her campaign! But alas, things backfired and the sadistic side of me can’t wait to see how Shinka’s popularity will plummet as her chuunibyou middle school persona Mori-Summer was revealed in front of the entire school.

Magical devil girl in pursuit 「追撃の…魔法魔王少女」

Screen Shot 2014-02-05 at 1.57.27 am

I really take my hats off to the creativity of Japanese high school students, anime world or not. It was amazing how both Rikka and newcomer Satone (Nagatsuma Juri) managed to engage in an entirely imagined, impromptu rapid-fire magical (mock) battle. They could keep up with each other and create plot and character developments AND invent new sorcery and weapons, all on the spot, in the school hallway. Maybe as a child one’s imagination could run wild without holding back but between 2 high schoolers? I’m in awe. Keeping up with the effects from the opening episode, KyoAni has done it again here. The fight between the Wicked Eye Lord Shingan (now improvised) the Fallen Dark Angel (邪王神眼堕天使) vs Sophia Ring SP Saturn VII had gorgeous visuals and special effects that I was very nearly fooled into thinking I was watching another of this season’s high-school-magic/supernatural (looking at you Tokyo Ravens, Mahou Sensou, Strike the Blood, Witch Craft Works) anime. Thankfully it’s not. It’s WAY better! I mean, what other show opens with what looks to be the makings of a high school boy’s wet dream that in reality, actually features his girlfriend hanging off a ceiling? Continue reading
