What is the central theme of the story?
Yuta Togashi is the central character of Love Chunibyo And Other Delusions; he is a self-acclaimed “chunibyo” or a person with delusions of grandeur. His delusions of dark powers are nothing more than delusional fantasies to cope with his inferiority complex.

Season 1 of Love Chunibyo introduces five main characters, which include;
- Yuta Togashi

- Shinka Nibutani
- Kumin Tsuyuri
- Sanae Dekomori
Twenty-two episodes were aired from October 2012 till March 2013, with an extra OVA episode being released in April 2014 as a bonus. The first season primarily focused on the interactions between Yuta and Rikka as his delusions about being an immortal dark wizard were slowly put to rest as he got to know her better. At the same time, Shinka Nibutani starts dating Yuta’s older brother, but this causes friction, especially because she was previously in love with him. As a result, there is some tension among the characters.
Love Chunibyo and Other Delusions Season 2
Season 2 of Love Chunibyo did not reveal much about what might happen next, except for some glimpses from within episodes. However, the main focus of this season is Rikka’s past and how she became delusional about magic when she was younger. There are also only slight references to Yuta and Rikka in terms of romantic developments, so we can expect more in Love Chunibyo Season 3 if there is one.
In the season 2 finale, titled “Love Is Blind – Confession Executive Committee,” Yuta declares his love for Rikka. She responds by saying that she doesn’t feel the same way. She then leaves him behind, but he catches up with her and confesses that she doesn’t romantically like him. He will always be by her side as her friend. The last scene of the episode shows them both walking off into the distance while holding hands. It could mean that they could finally become canon in one way or another if Love Chunibyo Season 3 were to happen.
