    Chunibyou is........good?

    So I'm kind of at a loss here.

    I'm not a fan of Moe, it does not appeal to me in general.
    I'm not a fan of HS romance, I feel it becomes really cliche and boring.


    But yet I'm enjoying Chuunibyou......

    I'm going to say something really stupid but, could it be that it's actually good?

    Animation- Kyoto Animation, so good/top-tier.
    Soundtrack- Decent, not too painful but not exactly orchestra quality.
    Characters- Hmmm, the comedy is primarily my focus. It's not great but it's entertaining that I get a laugh every episode. Still nothing on monogatari/gintama but it's consistent enough.

    Story- Here's the only part I have a problem with. The characters themselves need a push. The romance is too "shy" after they go out, which is weird because it was pretty straightforward before then.(filling the time?) I like the running gags but sometimes its like..did we really need an episode where absolutely nothing happened?


    To give it some arbitrary score I say: 8/10, good anime.
    ---------------------------------
    Minor praise and complaints.

    Praise:
    -I like how the running gag is imagination land. It's used very creatively and it is a good gag.
    -I think the characters themselves are pretty well done, even the girl who naps all the time, Kumin(my favorite char btw), has enough of a presence that she doesn't feel like "generic X archetype". This is primarily Kyo-ani's fault, but all the same.
    -The general combat scenes are both good and bad. Good in that I'd rather see an alternative anime with this JRPG setting, bad that they are sometimes very bland while other times pretty good(and funny thereafter).
    -Original idea on the HS romance. Chuunibyo(or 8th grade syndrome in some subs), is a pretty unique.


    Complaints
    - A little too many moe-shots sometimes. Its Kyo-ani and they do this with everything, but still.
    - Re-occuring episodes/themes. Some of Rikka's rival points or mori-summer's arcs are rather similar to an episode or two before. However this doesn't happen all that often(once or twice).
    - Kind of odd scenarios where the adults keep telling rikka "don't believe in this fantasy" but then participate in it fully. Contradicting message.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------


    Wellp that's about it. I'm on episode 9 of season 2.

    I never watched past season one due to the MC being such a wuss.
    I heard he asks her to hold hands after 6 months of dating later on. I mean i can handle the usually MC's being beta but that's just another level.
    Honestly speaking i think they should of just stopped the show after season one as i don't see anything they could add to the show.
    But those are just my thoughts without having watched any of it.

    They do take it rather slow but to be honest at least they establish they are dating.

    Can't tell you how many shows don't even get to that point or the "kiss = its over" ending.

    An 8 is a great ranking in general and Empire is a crtiic.

    I still need to watch Chuunibyo, only because I heard it was somewhat similar to Angel Beats! AB is probably my favorite anime of all time so I guess i'll give it a look. Shame it's not on Crunchyroll.

    And also, I browsed through Crunchyroll and saw the "Love, Chuunibyo, and Other Delusions" anime with the same character on the title as the character in Chuunibyo with the eye patch. You may want to check that out, it's probably a sequel? @Empire

    Well take it with a grain of salt I guess. 8 for comedy/romance.

    It doesn't surpass what I'd normally recommend but I'm enjoying it more than anything else atm.
    @Kiritsugu : that's the full title....

    Ren/Hearthrob is the second.

    I have to say the second is meh, but still more entertaining than any other comedy romance I like the first of>haruhi implied>

    I don't know who told you so but chuu is nothing like angel beats. At least not the first season that is.
    Crunchy has both season one and season two under chuunibyo if you just search that.

    Clannad and Haruhi Suzumiya would probably be the most similar to Angel Beats.

    Well yeah....Haruhi follows more or less the same premise/characters and Haruhi herself is in frickin Angel beats.
