Is this necessarily true? I know this will just end in a discussion about definitions but according to wikipedia for example it isn't

Because romance is rarely the main focus of an entire series,[a] harem structure is ambiguous. The most distinguishable trait is arguably the group of girls who accompany, and in some instances cohabitate with the boy, and while intimacy is just about customary, it is never necessary

She's just a kid, she's allowed to have delusions. Her interaction with Rikka was very cute.

You think they each might be holding somebody else's hand? It's not impossible since we don't see Yuuta and Rikka on screen at the time, but it's unlikely, I think. That would make the OP quite trolltastic, misleading us like that.

No not at all, since the "I'm Inoue Kikuko I'm 17 (audience: Oi oi/yeah right tsukkomi)" is a self-degrading joke which Inoue Kikuko came up with (including the the audience is to tsukkomi the joke bit) as an ice breaker to use during events, she actually has no illusion about how she's not actually forever 17 (as the joke is played on the fact that she can't be 17), thus this actually squarely puts her *outside* the chuuni delusional area.

I don't agree with that and I don't really see a reason to considering even the person who writes the article that Wikipedia is citing doesn't have a real reason other than, "This is how I define it."

Anyway, this is getting away from the point, which is that most of the characters probably won't develop feelings for Yuuta, and there's no reason to assume that they will.

In a harem show like this, all the ladies have feelings for the leading man. That's pretty much how they work.
As a number of posters have already pointed out, this anime is not supposed to be a harem, but a romantic comedy. While it could, theoretically, develop into a harem show, it isn't one at present and has not been advertised as such.

At this point, Rikka is the only one of the girls who has shown any (definite) interest in Yuuta, and even then it doesn't (yet) appear to be of any romantic nature. The other girls? Sanae is there because Rikka summoned her. Kumin is there to nap.

That leaves Nibutani, who, well, Yuuta obviously has a crush on but it seems to be one sided. Granted, she joined the club at the end of episode 3 and clearly has an ulterior motive, but we don't know (for sure) yet what that is, and if the name-related speculation already brought up by several posters pans out, it will have had nothing to do with Yuuta.

Well, is Rikka the "main girl"? Try asking yourself that while watching any of the "Lite" episodes, particularly during the OP/ED. Come on, this anime will end in one of two ways:

1) Yuuta and Rikka hook up
2) Yuuta and Rikka are going too hook up in the future

I'm looking forward to seeing how Yuuta gradually transfers his affection from Shinka to Rikka. And I suspect (hope?) that Shinka may be, not a recovered chuunibyou "sufferer," but a current sufferer under deep cover.

And thanks to houkoholic for more info about Uesaka Sumire (Sanae), who is a pretty interesting figure in herself. Make sure you click through to the pics he posted from a radio show blog. They show her in full Kuroneko-style goth-loli, casting a curse and calling down the god.

I'm not really expecting any resolution since this is a one cour anime adaption of an ongoing light novel.

It looks like a KyonxMikuru all over again.

That'd be option #2, then.

It's a VERY loose adaptation of a Light Novel, so anything can happen

I would like to see a Shinka route but I'm not expecting it to happen. She's my fav but I'm not going to complain about Rikka ending up with Yuuta. As long as she gets ample screen time, then I'm happy.

I was secretly hoping for this as well, unlikely it may be, it would make her character very interesting.

As for YuutaxShinka, while I'm not against the pair, I find Yuuta's affection toward Shinka rather superficial. I mean he only likes her just because she like the prettiest girl in class. I sense deeper bonding between Yuuta and Rikka.

The bond between Yuuta and Rikka could be said that it's base mostly on Rikka dragging him along, but okay if the Chuni-Byo is the main tying factor, then if Shinka is confirm to be a former Chuni-Byo, then that would place the bond between those two to be closer right? Both of them being former Chuni-Byo and understand 'da feelin'

In any case, even if Yuuta and Rikka are closer, it doesn't mean it'll become a love relatioship though at this point the same could be said about Shinka so I guess we don't have much else to go on

But hey, maybe in the end the whole thing would have nothing to do with love at all Don't get your hopes up

(imo though, I don't think it needs to be a love story)

Actually, come to think of it - is it actually ongoing? I know there's a second novel, but do we know that there are going to be any more?

If it wasn't, then the title would be the greatest troll ever.

The title along with this portion of an interview with the director suggests otherwise:

Perhaps she trains with an ever-uppity delivery girl at work ?

I'm not sure it has been mentioned recently that the title of the show means: "I'm chuunibyou, but I still want to make love." ("Make love" in the sense of being in love with someone and acting loving toward them and with them, not necessarily of anything physical.)

So far up to this episode, Yuuta is sympathetic toward Rikka since he's a former chu2byo but nothing romantic as of yet, but when it comes to Shinka, Yuuta only likes her because of her model student persona which may not be her true self as hinted by many posts in this thread. Until we learn more about Shinka character beyond her perfect exterior (chu2byo or not doesn’t matter) and whether she has feelings for Yuuta, I will withhold my judgment whether the pair is worth routing or not.

Fishy as in Chuuni-fishy or is it something else? Anyway, hope we'll find that out soon enough.
