I just realised this.

Papakiki MC is called Yuuta, and he's taking of the kids in the Takanashi family.

Here, the MC is called Yuuta, and he's taking care of one with surname Takanashi.

Odd coincidence.

Can't believe it took me this long to draw a connection.

She also can drop her fantasies if she's pushed enough, for example when Yuuta in Ep01 coerce her into telling where did she hear about the "dark flame master".

She is just a chuunibyou that takes her fantasies to an extreme, but she didn't break the barrier between normality and psychosis... yet...

Okay this might sound a bit harsh to Calvin, but I don't think he ever saw Hobbes for what he actually is not even for a brief moment. Also the reasons are completely different, Calvin is a typical case of a kid with an imaginary friend, while the "chuunibyou" is a phenomenon related to adolescents with delusions of grandeur.
The former is generally a way to fight solitude, the latter is a way to escape a boring reality where everyone is just a cog in a giant machine with no individuality.

Now that I mention it, Haruhi Suzumiya could be as well be considered a chuunibyou.
Hmmmm... If there's one thing I feel is similar between Rikka and Calvin is their reactions towards certain authority figures.

Rikka vs Administration Bureau's strongest priestess (Tooka)
Stupendous Man vs Babysitter Girl (Rosalyn), Crab Teacher (Miss Wormwood)

Rikka mentioned in the first episode that she only recently moved in with her sister, so it would seem the ladeling is not the cause of her chuunibyou. What I'm wondering, though, is where did she live before she came to live with Touka and why'd she move in there the first place?

Maybe her sister lived closer to the high school than her parents.

Perhaps the sister called herself the Highest Priestess of the Ethereal Horrizon Overseers back when she was a chuunibyou. Rikka just didn't know when to stop playing . The sister has lived in the apartment for atleast 2 years, since she has a recording of Yuuta, but she could have been ladeling her sister all her life before that point.

I wonder why exactly Touka recorded Yuuta's voice. It's unlikely that she planned to blackmail him from the very beginning. In the first place she had no way to know that he would later feel embarrassed about it, especially considering that she had another similar case in her family that didn't give any sign of coming to her senses.

So why did she do that? And why did she keep it for that much time (I suppose Yuuta didn't simply change from Black Flame Master to his current state of mind overnight).

Could it be that she actually enjoyed to listen to that? Well it could be also possible that she had a good laugh once in a while, but maybe she also secretely thinks that he was cool (like her younger sister).
By the way, there isn't really anyone so far in the series that said that Yuuta had to stop or that his fantasies were obnoxious and particularly embarrassing. For all we know maybe not even his current classmates would mind, and they don't seem to mind it that much in the case of Rikka either.

Actually... it's been said in the first episode that Yuuta chose a school particularly far from his home in order to avoid old acquaintances.
Is there any reason Rikka would choose precisely that school considering it's not only distant from her parent's house but also from her sister's?

It almost seems that she was targetting Yuuta from the very beginning...

And you know everything could make sense if Touka used to talk about Yuuta to her sister, quite understandable since they were both chuunibyou at the time. In that case maybe Touka recorded his voice so that her sister could listen to it. Which would mean that when Yuuta asked where did Rikka learned about his past she didn't tell him the whole truth. In the first place she was there to listen to him that day because she was targetting him to begin with...

Or maybe it's just a series of coincidences...

I'm pretty sure Rikka knows Yuuta for far longer than he thinks, given that she knows his Dark Flame Master alter-ego. And I think she moved there specifically to find him.

Didn't she say that she knew of it because she overheard him talking about it in the first episode?

The usual answer is that the father and/or mother moved outside of japan on a business travel.

That's what she said, and we know it's true that she heard him that day, since she was actually there.

However as I explained above there are a lot of "coincidences" that would make you think Rikka already knew since before, and since we know that her sister was well aware of that, it's easy to imagine how Rikka came to know of Yuuta and his "hobby" even before meeting him.

I might have missed it but I don't think it's posted yet. Appropriate cross-over concept, IMO. Source at the link.

Hmm? What's the meaning of this picture? Yuuta stabs Rikka right on the chest.....

or.....

He pulls out the sword from her chest?

I just watched the Lite 3. It's funny when Yumeha friend said Yuuta is cool, but it's really hilarous when he dropped all the act when a police was passing by. And am I correct to assume that what Yuuta's mother talk about is Yugioh card game?

Chuunibyou confession continue: Speaking of which, I just mentioned this to my friend to the other day and he reminded me that another thing we did when we played the Yugioh card game was screaming the monster's move. Blue eye's "Brust steam" and Black Magician's "Black magic something" are probably the most popular.

The second. It's a Guilty Crown reference.
