There have been rumblings for some time about the possibility of a third season of “Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions,” but no official word has been given yet. The first romantic-comedy anime film, released in 2012, has been around for almost a decade. Yta and Rikka, the show’s stars, have since gone on to further fantastical exploits in both a second season and a feature film, but fans are still clamouring for more.
Their “Chunibyo” romance is the focus of the storey, which follows the couple as they make their way through life. When a person’s day-to-day life is disrupted by their delusions of supernatural power, they are said to be suffering from paranoid delusional disorder. Many of these Walter Mitty characters suffer from “eighth-grade syndrome,” in which they continue to harbour childish fantasies long after they should have done so in accordance with social norms.
Kyoto Studios has yet to confirm rumours of a third season, so little is known for certain. It is possible that fans have the same delusions of grandeur as their favourite characters. Everything we’ve learned so far is here.
Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions Season 3 Release Date
There have long been rumours on the internet that a new season will be announced before the year 2021 ends. Even though TheCinemaholic questioned whether Season 3 would be coming in 2020, the rumour mill has continued to turn elsewhere online over the past year, so fans’ hopes have not been completely dashed.
There was a one-off special in June 2013 after the first season, but Season 2 didn’t arrive until the following year. The second season of “Chunibyo & Other Delusions: Take On Me” ended in March of the same year, and fans had to wait an agonising four years for the feature-length follow-up, which premiered in 2018.
78 percent of Rotten Tomatoes’ audience gave the movie a positive review. A third season could be justified by the fervour of the fans. With no official word yet and the precedent of a four-year wait for a “Chunibyo” movie, we’d bet it won’t be until the end of 2021 at least.
Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions Season 3 Plot
Torako and Nozomi saka illustrated and penned the light novel series that inspired the popular anime. Only one work by the author has been published: “Love, Chunibyo, and Other Delusions.”
Yta Togashi and Rikka Takanashi’s blossoming Chunibyo romance is just the beginning of what could be a long and exciting journey for these two characters. However, as anyone who’s ever been in (or out of) love knows, there’s no end to the potential conflicts and complications that can arise. It’s not hard to imagine how the creative team could concoct a few more stories that take us beyond the feature’s conclusion, given the series’ penchant for blending fantasy and reality. What about the supporting cast, whose stories weren’t quite as well-developed or wrapped up?
Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions Season 3 Cast
Without official confirmation, we can still speculate that the central couple Yta and Rikka will continue to play an important role in any potential third season of the show. So, it stands to reason that Jun Fukuyama and Maaya Uchida, who have been with “Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions” from the beginning to the most recent film in the series, could return.
More from their supporting cast of collaborators would also be welcomed. After her relationship with Rikka hit a rough patch, Yta turned to Tka Takanashi, played by Eri Sendai’s Tka Takanashi, for support. Similarly, Azumi Asakura’s adorable Kumin Tsuyuri, who is known for her insatiable desire to nap, is a constant source of amusement. In addition to Sumire Uesaka and Chinatsu Akasaki, the cast of ‘Chunibyo’ is remarkably consistent, so it may be the perfect time to introduce some new characters.
Chunibyo, keep dreaming, but keep your eyes peeled for official confirmation.
