Rikka and Yuuta have openly confessed their feelings for each other. Yuuta prostrated himself up and down to beg her grandparents from transferring her to another school, but still her apartment contract was cancelled due to a mistake! As a last resort, Rikka is now living in Yuuta’s apartment as the other Togashis have moved to Jakarta.

Character Descriptions:

Rikka Takanashi: Currently suffering from chuunibyou. Is now in her second year of high school. She begins to feel depressed as Shichimiya, an acquaintance from Yuuta’s past, appears.
Sanae Dekomori: Rikka’s servant. Is now a high school student and joined the association. Though she adores Rikka, she constantly quarrels with Nibutani, her senpai.
Satone Shichimiya (CV: Juri Nagatsuma): A previous acquaintance of Yuuta’s. Though she commutes to a different school, she appears in front of Rikka and Yuuta…
>Contrasting Rikka and Dekomori’s full throttle chuunibyou appearance, Shichimiya smiles. How will their relationship change once they get to know each other?

Delicious points! (pink boxes)

How has Rikka and Dekomori’s relationship been warped?!
Dekomori holds respect for her master, Rikka, from the bottom of her heart. Nevetheless, as Rikka fell in love with Yuuta, Dekomori’s emotions also fluctuated…. “She doesn’t want to disrupt Rikka and Yuuta’s relationship as she’s interpreted it as part of the contract that binds them together. Though there are points where she’s irritated.” Will Rikka notice that irritation…..?
A peek at Yuuta and Rikka’s heart-pounding cohabitation…
Due to various circumstances, Rikka and Yuuta are living together. Is this a huge chance for the couple?! “Thus far there hasn’t been any heart-pounding developments between the two. (laughs) Yuuta wakes a sleepy rikka up, makes her meals, and basically acts like a mother more than he does a lover.” Is the day where they become a super lovey-dovey couple far away…?

Main article:

Everyone, thanks for waiting! The second season of the “Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!” series is fast approaching! In the first season Rikka antagonized and reconcilied with her family over her father’s death, was cured of her chuunibyou and relapsed back, and went through many other situations. However, she has a moment of relief as she’s in a relationship with Yuuta and doesn’t have to transfer schools. Or so she thought. There seems to be no moments of peace and calm in “Chuunibyou” as you’d expect from these patients, right Director Tatsuya Ishihara?!
“Personally, I’ve said this over and over again: Rikka had such a hard time in season 1 that I want her to be happy in season 2. But as Yuuta’s old acquaintance, Shichimiya, appears, things have become disrupted around her again.”
Though Shichimiya suffers from the same chuunibyou illness Rikka and Dekomori suffer from, she appears more cheerful. Even more, she appears very sociable as well. This cheerful girl will make the second season more sweet than before with her different appearance!
“Shichimiya is definitely a bright and cheerful girl. In fact she’s a bit overwhelming with it. (laughs) However she’s also someone who can read the atmosphere around Rikka.”
Reading the atmosphere… that’s definitely a new type of chuunibyou we’ve not seen before!
“Since Shichimiya and Yuuta were once chuunibyou associates, there’s an assumption that it’ll become a muddled triangle between them and Rikka. However, I personally began thinking about how she could help Rikka and Yuuta re-affirm their feelings for each other instead of being a hinderance to Rikka in that relationship.”
Rikka and Yuuta’s slow moving relationship will start moving due to Shichimiya’s intervention?! Look forward to how Riika and Yuuta’s relationship spices up due to Shichimiya’s mordant presence!
