Well, it feels forced compare to Hyouka, bus that probably true for almost every anime as well, so I wouldn't make that comparison. I would rather use "fast" rather than "force."

Come on, that's totally normal..right? I mean, are there people who play Yugioh without screaming "duel!", "draw!", or "card of destiny" every once in a while?

Now that I think about it, my choice of career might as well partially effected by the chuunibyou I had back in the middle school (a mild one mind you). Thinking positively, I'd argue it's the part of me that refused to let my childhood ends. I wonder if this anime will touch upon that?

Well, all animes (1-cour) suffer from "fast" relationships (this is of course, in terms of episodes). In the end though, "fast" is subjective... I mean, look at the SAO thread.

Only I was using a "Pyramid of Light" Deck. ...and all the non-sense related to it.

Am I correct to assume that the other girls in the character cast also have varying cases of chunibyo? If that is the case, I wonder what kind of delusion Shinka (the representative who gave the speech) has. I don't think she has the anti-social chunibyo, so perhaps the subcultural/hipster chunibyo? The subcultural/hipster symptom gives the kind of elitist image, so I think it kind of fits her.

Saw this episode, and I really can't help but to turn that mana potion into what it rightfully is: a drink for the chosen ones.

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?
I approve this. But, does this mean that all chu2byos drink Dr. Pepper?

Short of spoiling ourselves, I don't think anyone can make a conclusion either way from the first episode. My guess would be she's the same as Yuuta--a former chuunibyou patience.

I really hope they all aren't total nutcases. Just because I'd actually like to see the social circle actively steer away from being a "everyone is here because they share the same nutjob interest."

Psychologically speaking a delusion is a sustained and unshakable belief in something despite irrefutable proof to the contrary. For a first episode it's kind of too early to say if how many of those characters actually have a delusion according to the DSM-IV clinical definition.

On the other hand since it IS a sustained belief that runs contrary to reality, Yuuta's acceptance of his... past beliefs does not make him delusional since he has accepted the "falseness" of his assumed middle school identity.

But is it really false?

For all we know she really does have a Demon Eye and he's really a Dark Master. That would be a nice twist, since you know this is billed to have some supernatural elements and not just delusional allusions to it. Or maybe I inhaled too much Desflurane in the OR again.

Also I swear her ahegao has a life of its own...

Well, Kyoani can print money easy with this anime and spinoff(s)... people would now gladly watch Riika with her Demon Eye shooting a customized C96 Mauser while the Dark Flame Master goes around painting the world in a dark shade (hold on, this is sounding more and more like what Urobutcher might work with), become heroes destined to win in athletic tournaments in some faraway land, and collect ancient relics lest anyone do the unthinkable with them...

or they can simply keep getting slapped with the chuunibyou realities. Either would sell like hotcakes.

@Ahegao... someone has seen enough Hentai to know where this is going.

First thought: Is chuunibyou an actual thing in Japan?

Maybe it's the cultural dissonance talking here, but the first episode didn't hook me in that well. Well, I'm not expecting it match Hyouka, but I hope this finds its groove soon. I'll just have to see where it goes from here. That way I see it, this can either go with the pandering route, where the whole chuunibyou set up is just an excuse to create a cast of oddballs (w/ a straight man male lead), or it can choose to play the theme straight, along with a bit of social commentary. Only time will tell.

I wouldn't call them delusional just yet though. I'd rather just call it escapism at this point.

It have been defined since as early as 2002 iirc. And it's quite possible that it's also a widesprad phenomenon in the world. We have all meet someone who is delusional as hell and can't get over that delusion. It could be that scrawny nerd who suddenly takes on a gangsta persona, taking on the mannerisms of Scarface or gangster stereotypes, goths who are a little too much into their things, metalheads who takes the occult schtick of their genre litterally and starts acting out sacrifices by slicing a chick's throat over a grave. Some are amusing, many are amusing and a few are just plain worrying.

After watching the Lite episode 2, I really think Rikka should take off that eyepatch. Her cuteness increases exponentially when it's off, it's ridiculous.

Also, I can't help but laugh because it just looks like she's screwing around half the time. lol

So a total of how many episodes(Including Lite)? I am confused whether the Lite is an OVA or a prequel series(1 cour)...

Well, it's not like I get what you're talking about, but most of the time those kinds of instances are superficial at best. I don't think I've ever met anyone who was actually delusional. The fact that they have a specific term for it in Japan suggests that such incidents aren't simply outliers over there and are relatively more frequent.

If you ask me, it's a good example of doublethink in action. That is, holding two contradicting beliefs without them inducing any form of cognitive dissonance.

Picture the Lite series as something like Haruhi-chan, a net-exclusive series that takes a much more "comedic" view of the series.

lol, I've been under the impression that the lite things were just previews/snippets taken from future episodes. If they're their own stand-alone spin-off things then if the actual show nosedives that means I'll at least have the lite stuff to fall back on

I would say Okabe falls under both categories. He is also into supernatural powers, as he has a possessed right hand (that would go out of control at convenient times) and even an evil eye. His general demeanor and way of talking is definitely an evil eye type, too.
