Have you ever watched something that is so obviously not alright that it physically hurts you to see it slowly falling apart in front of you? Well, we have Chuunibyou episode eleven to help you experience that pain with me. Rikka is trying her best to act like a normal person, but you can tell that she is forcing herself to be something that she doesn’t want to be. Things are bad, but they look fine on the outside. Yuuta and Rikka are still together and Touka is at ease with the situation that she is leaving behind for Italy. However, Rikka continues to do things that are for the benefit of those around her with a blatant disregard for her own feelings. Things culminate when she decides to visit her father’s grave with her mother even though Rikka wants to believe that her father is out there in the horizon. Yuuta doesn’t stop Rikka from going even though he feels uneasy about her recent demeanor which sparks a confrontation from Dekomori who has been adamant about Rikka going back to the way she once was. Tears come as Dekomori tells us about how Rikka was so happy that Yuuta believed in her and that he wanted to be with her. Unfortunately, Yuuta tells Dekomori that playing pretend accomplishes nothing and sends her off in tears even though he did not want to say that. I can’t even handle this show right now.
Current Opinion of the Show:
I am very into Chuunibyou right now. Only a truly great story can get someone as emotionally invested in the characters as I am right now. The very serious turn that this series has taken really caught me off guard, but in a good way and it has resulted in a drama that I must see concluded. The issues are real and the tension that is building up is nothing less than suffocating. Waiting an entire week to see the last episode is going to kill me. I am really looking forward to what I hope is a happy ending.
