When Mizuki Hijiri transferred to a new school, all she wanted was to live a normal school life, but that did not prove to be the case when she met the infamous Hero Club. All of its members are boys suffering from various types of chuunibyou—Yamato Noda is a righteous hero, using his athletic abilities to perform noble deeds and protect others; Kazuhiro Nakamura claims to be the reincarnation of "Touga Ryushouin," the result of the forbidden union between a demon and an angel; Tomoki Takashima is a pretty-boy otaku whose one true love is the 2D anime girl Sora; and Rei Tsukumo plays the role of a schemer, covertly pulling the strings. Dragged along as the newest member of the Hero Club, tepid Hijiri can't obtain the normalcy that she desires. But even so, despite their various quirks, their bonds of friendship are real; Hijiri's life can only get more exciting when she joins in on their delusions of grandeur! [Written by MAL Rewrite]
There’s a large amount of anime where there’s a bunch of chuunibyou characters, and most of them tend to be female characters, and usually directed towards the male audience. For one thing, this anime reminded me a lot of Konosuba, since the boys are very similar to Aqua, Megumin, and Darkness as they all have a kind of chuunibyou complex, acting grander than they really are, which isn’t a bad thing (theres even a reference to Megumin’s explosion attack when Nakamura does one of his “attacks” :p). However, Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy puts a refreshing spin on that aspect, giving an entire group of bishie boys that grandiose character.
Chuubyou Gekihatsu is one of the funniest anime put out by Sentai Filmworks, centered around five boys with a chuunibyou complex, part of their club called the Hero Club. The main character girl does her best to live her everyday school life around these boys, and has many funny moments in between. Each of the boys’ personalities is hilariously eccentric, displaying their traits in the clearest way, and hradly faltering in character. The boys aren’t always just eccentric however, they do have moments when they really group together and connect in order to solve some problem in each episode, or simply to encourage other characters to get in their Hero Club. Seeing the grandiose complex in a bunch of guys may be funnier than you think.
Art: 8/10 Sentaii Filmworks brings us great art as always. The animation and art is clear, and very colorful, even for just a comedic anime. The characters all look unique, and not bland at all.
Story: 7/10 Given the anime is a comedic school life anime, it is pretty average in story line, with the anime being about the lives of the boys and main character girl, with a few side characters. Nothing too special to say.
Sound: 8/10 I love the soundtrack that plays at random moments when one of the characters is being dramatic and displaying their “power”. Especially when Nakamura has a scene where he’s “battling” with his demon side and having a “tragic” moment. I put quotes around those words since it’s really just him being dramatic, but in the most hilarious way. A classical organ piece comes up, and I even heard Air On G by Bach at one point lol.
Character: 9/10 The characters are so unique in general and within the story. Yes, they all have the chuunibyou complex, but they go through it in different ways. The synopsis has all the traits of their complex.
Enjoyment/Overall: 9/10 I enjoy this show so much. I haven’t watched such a funny anime in a while. This anime REALLY gives me Konosuba vibes which is all the more hilarious.
If you like funny, Konosuba-vibe kind of anime, then I HIGHLY recommend watching Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy. It’s made by the same studio, Studio Deen, and you can really feel the similarities to Konosuba. If you like that but with pretty boys, then check this out! It’ll leave you wanting to watch more, and have you laughing all throughout. You can also free Chuubyou Gekihatsu Boy anime watch online and free download.
