This review confirms pretty much all the things I have speculated about whhat kind of movie it would be. I think am going to like it once I watch it. Thanks for this review; I might until the BD release to watch it. Hopefully Sentai will have no troubles licencing it.

I always thought it was less of an issue of "will they or won't they?" and more "can they or can't they?" Because if the first thing impeding the relationship is that the two aren't in the same reality then there's more to it than their own feelings. And that's the problem with season two, they reset Rika back to "She can't".... without any sort of explanation... why am I suddenly thinking of the Last Jedi?

Ok, mark it off as sequelitis. "We want to continue but we don't want to deal with natural character development that has already happened."

So Take on Me is season 2 but with less Kumin? I don't know, doesn't sound as spicy to me. Waiting five years to use that stupid joke...

Music : B

The operative question is this: would this category have been awarded an 'A' if a certain 1980s pop song had been included in the soundtrack?

Bravo. I approve. Laughing

Seriously, though, I hope this movie doesn't take as long to get over here as the last Chunibyo film.

Well I for one absolutely loved the second season, even if it wasn't as great as the first. So I'm definitely excited to see the movie.

Sounds like it'll be exactly what I wanted. I just need something to resolve that poor relationship, and this seems to deliver. The KyoAni references sound really fun as well.

I'm surprised they didn't opt to make a spin-off show with Nibutani and Dekomori. I found their contentious relationship the most interesting part of the show.

For those who haven't seen the series yet, could the movie function as an alternative/replacement to the second season?

Read a summary of Shichimiya's backstory and you'll be fine.

not only does she still have chunibyo, she and Yuta still haven't even kissed. This alone strains credibility
. I've known a lot of "super Weebs" that lasted beyond high school and had issues with physical contact even with their "partner". It's definitely not common, but it does happen. Anywho, thanks for the review. Really does sound like a great way to truly end the franchise. Can't wait to see it Smile
