Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions [TV]
Y?ta Togashi is a boy who, during junior high school, had ‘adolescent delusions’ (? ch?niby, lit. “junior high school second grade illness”), believing that he possesses supernatural powers and dubbing himself the ‘Dark Flame Master,’ therefore alienating himself from his classmates. Finding his past embarrassing, Y?ta attempts to start off high school where he does not know anyone, free from his old delusions. This proves to be difficult, however, as a delusional girl in his class, Rikka Takanashi, learns of Y?ta’s past and becomes interested in him.
As the plot progresses, Rikka becomes more attached to Y?ta, who, despite finding her delusions irritating and embarrassing, accepts her. He helps Rikka with a number of things, including founding and maintaining her club and tutoring her. When he joins her on her summer vacation, Y?ta learns that two years prior, Rikka’s father, whom she was very close to, died unexpectedly due to a terminal illness, causing her to fall into her delusions. After Y?ta agrees to help Rikka search for the ‘Ethereal Horizon’ (?? Fukashi Ky?kaisen?), which she believes will lead her to her father, she becomes romantically interested in him and vice versa.
