posted on by Sarah Nelkin
Kyoto Animation began streaming the fifth 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, and wrote the lyrics for the song.
In the video, a middle-school age Yūta who is still caught in his delusions of fantasy goes on a camping trip with his family and his younger sister's friend. When he emerges from the family car, he mumbles that "this is the next battlefield." Throughout their trip, his younger sister's friend comments on how cool Yūta is. However, his younger sister is not so sure of this, as she constantly has to stop him from doing foolish things.
While she is cooking, she sees her brother go into the forest, which she tells him is dangerous. At one point, he pushes her out of the way to "protect her," and he falls on a spiky chestnut. In retaliation, he shoots One Off the bush with his replica gun, but his sister tells him not to take unripe chestnuts off of the bushes. She leaves him in the forest, but when he reemerges, there is blood dripping off of his head.
Ready to eat dinner, his mother tells the other children that it was a good thing that it was a small wound, but it was dangerous that he fell out of a tree. Although the family tries to coax Yūta to come eat curry with them, he insists in roasting a chunk of meat over the fire. When her friend tells her once again that Yūta is cool, for a moment, his little sister thinks that he is. However, when he is burned by a piece of debris from the fire and rolls around on the ground, she loses this admiration.
