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.
