Just for fun:

After every episode, the top character page from the main website changes slightly every week to show the main character's reflection on the broadcasted episode that week. Some of them are lines from the episode, some aren't. I didn't collect them all, but here are some examples with translations:

After episode 2
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?
Images
After episode 3
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?
Images
After episode 4 preview on Monday
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?
Images
After episode 4
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

I especially liked the episode 4 ones which shows Yuuta's family's reaction to Yuuta getting his hopes up, then being "dumped" by Nibutani.

Yuuta's family reaction are in unity. Truly pity indeed.

Actually the "what a pity(zanne)" line is guided towards Shinka and not Yuuta, as Yuuta's line was supposed to be his response in finding out that Shinka wasn't a normal pretty girl but her turned out to be a chuuni hence the "not you too" line. Also Shinka would be what people in Japan would refer to as a "zannen bijin/bishoujo" which literally means a "regrettable pretty lady/girl", meaning that the girl is really pretty but has a fatally flawed personality/characteristic/questionable fetish which makes them undesirable as a partner to normal people (of course, in the otaku world sometimes this is actually turned into a desirable trait), in Shinka case would be both her faking to be a nice person as well as her chuunibou, which makes her pretty much a textbook example of a zannen bishoujo.

I don't really think Yumeha (and probably Kuzuha and the Mom as well) would say "zannen" with that kind of connotation in mind. Taking into account their lines before episode 4 which were directed at Yuuta, I'd say the "zannen" line was definitely also directed at him as well.

Also, click for big:

There is definitely a double meaning in there - pitying Yuuta "lost" his perfect target due to Shinka turning out to be a "zannen bishoujo", and that Shinka being a "zannen bishoujo" itself is regrettable. Though I'm certain there's no meaning in pitying him because he got rejected, since Yuuta's line has no such implication to begin with.

I felt it needed to be translated to share the information internationally.
Adding to this, Nojitetsu-san announced today that Chuunibyou will be featured on the front cover of next month's Megami Magazine! The editor-in-chief was at the pre-air screening in Tokyo on 9/22 and called Nojitetsu-san on 9/23 offering the cover to November's magazine. This was formalized and Nojitetsu-san was quite pleased. He compared it to "[my own] child winning an award." Just thought it added to the earlier translation about how early magazine illustrations are made. I can't wait to see what the editor-in-chief and staff thought of for the first Chuunibyou cover!

Edit: YAY! I got the first post in the new subforum!

Popping the champagne corks on three things. One The incoming first cover to feature the programme. Two a successful broadcast of the fifth episode. Three the long awaited sub forum!

Nah, Kumin has bigger bust size than Shinka. Her bust size is second to Touka.

I didn't realize they were in order of breast size...

BTW am I the only one that notices how Shinka has a pretty large body build compared to all the rest of the female cast?
