Sentai Filmworks have decided to make my Tuesday a lot more fun than Monday was! They have announced the licensing of Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!: Rikka Version. Yes please! This is a “fresh retelling of the original”, told through the eyes (or eye) of Rikka Takanashi. The Rikka Version with English dub is set to release to home video in 2017.
If you haven’t seen the original you have time to get caught up! Before that though check out my Building Character article on Rikka.
Sentai Filmworks Licenses “Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!: Rikka Version”
HOUSTON, APRIL 4, 2017 – The world looks different through the eyes (though usually just one eye…) of a true chunibyo in Sentai Filmworks’ newest acquisition: Kyoto Animation’s Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!: Rikka Version. The movie is a fresh retelling of the original Love, Chunibyo, & Other Delusions TV series, told from the point of view of the Tyrant Eye herself, Rikka Takanashi.
Chunibyo, an “ailment” of flights of fancy or perceived grandeur, can often strike Japanese youth in middle school, but for high-schooler Rikka Takanashi, her battles against supernatural forces are very real. In this retelling of the original TV series, the spunky and fearless (but often clueless) RIkka brings us her own spin on the saga between herself and the former “Dark Flame Master,” Yuta Togashi.
Sentai Filmworks plans to release Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!: Rikka Version with an English dub to home video in 2017.
