About Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb- (Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren)
Sentai Filmworks brings us the premium box set for Love, Chunibyo, & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb-! In the second season of the hit anime series -which is all included in this set, by the way- the Dark Flame Master’s misadventures with his now-girlfriend, Rikka Takanashi, continue their new life as roommates, with the added complication of the appearance of Yuta’s middle school flame!
Yuta thought he had problems dealing with one delusional girlfriend in Rikka, but now things are getting even crazier as Satone, his former "one true soulmate" from when he was a chuuni himself, returns with a vengeance! How much worse than Rikka can she possibly be? Well, this chuuni darling is so epically committed, that she goes by the name Sophia Ring SP Saturn VII. And she is willing, ready and able to happily destroy Togashi's real world just to get him back in her fantasy one! Sometimes it’s easier to join them than to try and beat them, right? That may be Togashi’s only option at this point. Especially since Satone knows about all of Togashi’s skeletons in the closet. Toss Rikka's equally delusional friend Sanae into the mix and girl-crazy takes on a whole new meaning!
On the Outside
All the goodies, discs and surprises are kept inside a gorgeous white chipboard box with both of Togashi’s chunis striking a pose among cute and sparkly holographic designs. The other side of the main box showcases all eight of the show’s girls being as sexy and adorable as they only know how.
As this set comes with double the goodness in the way of both a DVD set and a Blu-ray set, we also get to enjoy two different disc box designs! The DVD box is decorated with pink hearts, stars, and sparkles with Togashi, Rikka, and Satone, prepping us for the (mis)adventures inside. And the Blu-ray box is decorated with blue symbols and showcases Shinka and Sanae.
Another box included is what we like to call the goodies box! Which is a DVD-sized box decorated with our chuuni girls in full fantasy garb, and filled with surprises we’ll cover below.
On the Inside
This Chunibyo -Heart Throb- premium set is as full of surprises as Satone! Not only are the DVD and Blu-ray discs magically gorgeous to look at on their multiple disc holders, but both digital and physical extras abound!
One of the really cool additions to this premium set is the “Mabinogion” journal, based on Mori Summer’s (Shinka’s chuuni alter ego) own book where she keeps her teachings! It’s small, cute, black and decorated with multicolored “stickers”. Now you too can write down how to be a powerful mage! (Or whatever other magical creature you happen to believe you are!).
And now, for the goodie box contents! First up, there’s a folded poster of Satone and Rikka nose-to-nose which would perk up any living space!
Then, we have a gorgeous collection of seven art cards featuring all of our favorite characters from the show in an artsy watercolor-like style.
If you want to bring the Chunibyo style with you wherever you go, Sentai Filmworks has you covered with stickers, a glitter heart tattoo you can wear like Satone, and a little mirror with both of Togashi’s girls to check yourself out and make sure your evil eye isn’t showing.
If that wasn’t enough, you can also carry your chuuni goodness in the form of the exclusive Satone keychain with a reversible face by GoodSmile which isn’t available anywhere else! Isn’t she adorable!?
I know, it feels like there can’t possibly be anything else in this set, right? Well, there is. The premium edition of Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Heart Throb- brings it on with some awesome digital extras too!
- Chuni Shorts: All 6 short episodes of Love, Chunibyo, & Other Delusions Lite, which were originally released on Kyoto Animation’s YouTube channel.
- Extra Episode (OVA): The Rikka Wars / Apocalypse of the Wicked Lord Shingan Reborn
- Clean opening and closing
