YMMV: Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!
For the main page, see here.

  • Anvilicious: "Everyone has their own way of dealing with sadness." "We all need to escape our reality sometimes".
  • Awesome Music: In true Kyoto Animation tradition. The ending theme, "Inside Identity", is particularly awesome.
  • Broken Base: Fan opinion on episode 7 is split. Some feel that the drama is unnecessary, and that Rikka doesn't need a psychological reason to behave the way she does. Others like the depth and development that it brings her character, as well as the show itself.
    • In episode 11, Yuuta became one, thanks to a combination of forcing Rikka to give up her chuunibyou ways (to the point of trying to forcably rip the eyepatch off of her) and seeming completely oblivious to how miserable she is when she does give it up.
      • Except he's not oblivious to it at all. He knows how much pain Rikka's going through and is even angsting about how guilty he feels about his actions. He just isn't willing to let himself reassure her because he feels it would be irresponsible and go back on his previous actions.
    • The finale of the second season has already become this. A large chunk of the audience hates that they spend the whole season building up to a Big Damn Kiss only to have it NOT happen at the very end. Typical for Kyoto Ani, but reeks of a cop-out.
  • Ear Worm: Lite's ending
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Some fans have noted that the real Dark Flame Master will come to life when he becomes The Hero in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha especially after wearing the Black Knight armor.
  • Les Yay: Shinka and Dekomori.
    • Foe Yay
    • So much so that they end up accidently kissing in the bonus OVA.
    • Dekomori's response to Rikka saying she's in love with Yuuta in episode 10 can be seen as this, completely with Murder the Hypotenuse (she snapped out of it fast and helped to give her "master" confidence to confess to Yuuta).
      • And her reaction to being hugged by Rikka.
  • Memetic Mutation: Woop WoopExplanation 
    • There have been more than a fair share of full-on parodies of the entire opening and also the introductory section of episode 1.
    • When I'm- Dark Flame Master? (Hidden finger spinning included!)
    • Yuuta of the Rebellion.
  • Moe: Rikka, hands down.
    • Kumin as well.
    • Don't forget about Sanae.
    • I think it's safe to say that pretty much every character in this series is moe to some degree.
  • Tear Jerker: The end of episode 7 and the beginning of episode 8.
    • After Rikka is hit with the fact that her father is dead, we can't see how she is going to react because the half of her face we are shown is obscured by her eyepatch. Then a tear rolls down.
    • Rikka finally accepting her father's death.
    Rikka: Goodbye, father.
