ACF 1657: Sentai Filmworks acquires CHUNIBYO DEMO KOI GA SHITAI!
They say love is blind, but apparently, it’s also stark, raving mad! Sentai Filmworks invites you to discover the truth for yourself in: Chunibyo Demo Koi ga Shitai! This 12 episode series about the foibles of young love features direction by Tatsuya Ishihara (Air, Clannad), series composition by Jukki Handa (Rozen Maiden, Campoine!), character designs by Kazumi Ikeda (Clannad, Kannon), sound direction by Yota Tsuruoka (A-Channel, ef ~ a tale of memories) and music byNijine (Hatsukoi Limited, Akikan!).
Chunibyo Demo Koi ga Shitai! will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow in 2013.
Synopsis: Yuta has a problem. First, Rikka has told him that they’re officially dating, but she’s… a little bit delusional. There’s also the fact that he used to be a little delusional himself, one of the thousands of Japanese students afflicted with “Chunibyo”, so desperate to stand out that they’ve literally convinced themselves that they have secret knowledge and hidden powers. Unfortunately, that’s not the main part of Yuta's problem.
No, the REAL problem is that, even though HE’s no longer delusional, and Rikka MIGHT have been getting better, his OTHER female “friend,” Satone, his one true soul mate back when he was a chuuni, has ripped back into his life and she’s still epically and truly NUTS! How bad? Let’s just say that she prefers the name Sophia Ring SP Saturn VII; that she’s NOT happy that her partner in Chunibyo has cut her off; and that she’ll joyfully tear Yutta’s real world to pieces in order to get him back in her imaginary one!
“Crazy in love” gets a whole new meaning as three fantasy worlds collide in Chunibyo Demo Koi ga Shitai!
