Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! Heart Throb's 6th Lite Short Posted

posted on by Egan Loo
Flash back to Satone & Nibutani's past with talk of angels (& magical girl transformation)

Kyoto Animation began streaming the sixth anime short in its Chūnibyō demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren Lite (Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb- Lite) series 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, Satone tells the story of her and Nibutani's past together to Kumin. Back when Nibutani took the form of Morisamaa, she tried to summon an angel, along with the help of two female students (voiced by Aki Nakajima and Eimi Okada) and Satone Shichimiya. After ingesting “elixir” (edible chrysanthemums), Nibutani notices that a gust of wind has come in, signaling the angel's arrival.

Although one girl says she does not see the angel and thinks it was just a gust of wind, the other girls say they see the angel with the “eyes of their heart.” When one more gust of wind takes away the prayer slip, Nibutani comments that the angel has left. Back in the present, Nibutani is terribly embarrassed by the stories of her middle school delusions.

The bonus portion of the video features the magical girl transformation of Satone.

Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb-, 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. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the series for North American home video release. The television anime's first season premiered in Japan in 2012.
