has spent half his life living in a dream world as a fantasy hero,
but now he has left that all behind, to live as a 'normal' human and
have a 'normal' high school life. That is until he meets Ryoko.
Ryoko is just like he was years ago living a fantasy hero/heroine
life. As he tries to not get involved with her, he finds himself
drawn to her, protecting her from those who would hurt her. But when
he helps her, he is afraid that others will discover his own past, so
in order to save her he will have to call on the hero character
inside him he buried long ago in Aura: Koga Maryuin's Last War
Saito is all too aware of how cruel the world and
people can be. He knows how lonely those who were like him are.
While he has successfully left that part of his life behind him,
there are other who haven't given up their fantasy lives, and he
cannot forget those who are still there. Especially when he see
other like him being bullied for being 'different'. In the end, in
order to protect the dreamers who were like him will he have return
to the secret of his past?
This was a one shot anime movie
about Chunibyos/otakus and for all those living fantasy lives as if
they were real. Society often sees and calls these people crazy,
when people find out about them, they make fun or bully them. Truth
is those who live fantasy lives are lonely and are seeking attention,
because they feel life is too small, and too cruel so they rather
live in a fantasy world, but it is also true of the opposite, those
who bully them live more realistic (but shallow) lives, without
imagination or wonder. But then a life with wonder seems flat and
stale without joy.
