Rikka gets a stye on her left eye in 5-minute short

Kyoto Animation began streaming the second episode of its Chūnibyō demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren Lite series of anime shorts on Wednesday. The video features the ending theme “Shin'en ni Mau Senritsu Shanikusai” (A Hair-Raising Carnival Dancing in the Abyss) by ZAQ, who also composed, arranged, wrote the lyrics for the song.

The video begins with Yūta (voiced by Jun Fukuyama) asking Rikka (Maaya Uchida) if she is OK because her eye has swelled up quite a bit. Rikka replies that there's no problem because she received ointment and an eye patch from the hospital this morning. Rikka then puts on the eye patch, making her blind. Yūta points this out and Rikka says she'll still be fine, and demonstrates that to him. Yūta is impressed but then realizes that Rikka's right eye is slightly poking through her eye patch. He fixes her eyepatch and she starts stumbling into things. Rikka at first refuses to take off her right eyepatch, but eventually gives in and takes it off. Yūta then gives Rikka her eye drops, which she quickly gives up on, and Yūta offers to do it for her. As Yūta is helping Rikka put in the eye drops, Shinka, Kumin, and Sanae are eavesdropping on their easily-misunderstood conversation, with Rikka saying "Yūta, for you to do something like that so suddenly, I can't do it" and "No, I'm scared," and Yūta saying, "Stay still, I'll do it gently" and "Idiot, close your eyes."

Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! REN, the second season of the Chūnibyō demo Koi ga Shitai! (Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!), premiered in Japan on January 8. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs.

The television anime's first season premiered in Japan last October. Sentai Filmworks acquired the series for digital and home video distribution in North America.
