So two seasons later, Kyoto Animation has a new show out. Considering how much I enjoyed their last show (you can see just how much here) there was no way I could pass this one up. Like their last work Hyouka, Chuunibyou is based on a light novel series, but the genre is a little different this time around. Hyouka dealt more with drama and quiet slice of life moments, but Chuunibyou is all about the comedy (for now, at least). I’ve seen the first 3 episodes, so I’ll be basing these impressions on that.
So let’s get some small details out of the way. Chuunibyou is a light novel by Torako, and picked up for animation by Kyoto Animation, the first of this 12 episode series airing on September 27, 2012. Now without further ado, let’s examine this a little deeper.
