Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! HeartThrob: Season 2 (2013/Sentai DVD Set)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: B Episodes: B+

Chunibyo - A person with delusions of fantasy and grandeur, often mimicking characters, heroes/heroines and acting them out in real life. Yuta was a chunibyo, but now he is 2nd year in high school. Now he is living with Rikka, Rikka is a hardcore Chunibyo and drags him into her fantasy life. Will Yuta be able to keep in check his old Chunibyo ways? As they continue their high school days they meet other Chunibyos who add to their daily imaginary adventures in Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! HeartThrob: Season 2, the 2013 follow-up to the original show.

Yuta, (a.k.a Dark Flame Master) find his past embarrassing and has tried (and failed) to leave his past delusions behind. He is dragged back into the Chunibyo world by Rikka, (a.k.a Wicked Lord Shingan *and his girl friend now) who's prefers living an imaginary fantasy world of magical girls fighting the 'norms'. Together they started a 'magic club' which they are joined Dekomori who consider Rikka her 'master', Nibutani the most popular girl in school (a.k.a. Mori Summer) also a former Chunibyo. And finally, Tsuyuri a carefree upperclassman who joined to fall asleep whenever she wants. As the new semester starts a new girl/rival Sophia appears adds to their Chunibyo society. More delusions, more girls what could be wrong with that?

This was a comical series, while there is no actual magical girl(s) more often the characters go into fantasy mode, role playing themselves fighting the forces of evil (conformity or normality) or each other. The characters grow and eventually become friends with each other, but the main character discovers they prefer to live in fantasy worlds (because having fantasies is much more fun than reality).

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo look as good as they could for the DVD format, but one wishes it were a Blu-ray. Extras include Chuni-shorts, Japanese Promos, clean opening and closing, and trailers.
