Average Rating

Everybody has had that stage in their life where they have thought themselves to be special, different from the masses of ordinary humans. They might go as far as seeing themselves capable of wielding mystical powers, or maybe even believe themselves to have descended from a fantasy realm. This "disease" is known as "chuunibyou" and is often the source of some of the most embarrassing moments of a person's life. For Yuuta Togashi, the scars that his chuunibyou has left behind are still fresh. Having posed as the "Dark Flame Master" during his middle school years, he looks back at those times with extreme embarrassment, so much so that he decides to attend a high school far away where nobody will recognize him. Putting his dark history behind him, he longs to live a normal high school life. Unfortunately, he hasn't escaped his past yet: enter Rikka Takanashi, Yuuta's new classmate and self-declared vessel of the "Wicked Eye." As this eccentric young girl crashes into Yuuta's life, his dream of an ordinary, chuunibyou-free life quickly crumbles away. In this hilarious and heartwarming story of a boy who just wants to leave his embarrassing memories behind, the delusions of old are far from a thing of the past.

An initially and throughout silly story that shows an incredibly pained heart when it comes to dealing with grief and growing up.


Dark Flame Master


If you’re not looking for a fast developing romance, but still want romance with cute girls, comedy and some drama, then this is great.


One of the greatest romantic comedies I’ve ever seen in anime. All shall fall under the dark power of this anime.


That last episode almost destroyed the whole series because how cliche it is. But, I still think that its good.


Its awkward and cute. A coming of age story about a bunch of dorks.


A funny rom-com that ultimately takes too long to get anywhere. Too much filler.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
