I’m more interested in the subplots than Chuunibyou’s main story

I’m not a huge Chuunibyou fan, not even a big one, rather a sort of a regular watcher who enjoyed the first season. One who enjoyed the antics of a group of high schoolers with too much imagination and second to none escape mechanism skills, enough to guarantee a second season. Thing is, I didn’t care much for the main couple beyond it being part of the main story. I still do. After the 2nd season this hasn’t changed much.  Why?

Rika and Yuuta’s relationship is boring. Yuuta has always been boring. Rika has become boring. I’d say I find Kumin to be more interesting but that’d be false. The relationship feels stale, dull. The story’s been moving at a snail pace for developments. When there is drama it is anticlimactically solved within the same episode.

The thought alone is troubling, isn’t it. Understandably rarely does one willingly gives up gift of vision even momentarily unless there is a reason. From letting the individual know what is happening to what isn’t, vision plays one of the biggest roles in anyone’s existence shaping the world around them. Its importance goes beyond anything that could be stated to the degree that it would be far an easier task to list what one couldn’t do without it. So then whatever happens in the case the experimenter momentarily can only see through one eye. Whatever happens in the case a certain eyepatch comes into play. Whatever happens the world for that short amount of time. Whatever happens to our vision.

Such is the case.  Continue reading
