Seri Koyuki is a high school student who tries to avoid strange people because he knows he will just end up being the the straight man to their antics. Enter Kabuto Hanadori, Koyuki’s classmate who has chūnibyō (second-year middle school syndrome) and claims his eyepatch seals his god of destruction alter ego. Everything about Hanadori exudes the need for a straight man to keep him in check, and sure enough Koyuki is drawn inAnime News Network
I felt like this was one of the anime that was underrated for Winter 2020. It was funny and love seeing their friendship grow (maybe more than friends >.>’) Seri was like a loner in the beginning. He wish for an ordinary high school life, but encounter a classmate name Hanadori who is a chūnibyō! He calls Seri by Gestober and said that Seri was his partner in his last life. Of course, later on we found out all this fantastical story was created by Tsukimiya. Tsukimiya and Hanadori are childhood friends and probably is Hanadori’s only friend. Hanadori is very obedient when it comes to Tsukimiya. However, I also agree with Seri that Tsukimiya might be a devil in disguise.
Tsukimiya can be described as sadistic because he really enjoy watching Seri mess up and embarrass himself. He is smart and manipulative. He can easily reads people’s mind just base on their action and expression. Seri can never escape from Tsukimiya’s palm. Although Hanadori is a chūnibyō, he is actually very smart. I love Hanadori, he is just so pure. He may do embarrassing stuff but is all out of good intention. His chibi form is so adorable too. You can never stay mad at him. After watching all the stuff Hanadori does for Seri, you feel like Seri is just a tsundere and should just admit he loves Hanadori too. (Seeing their interactions, you just can’t help but want to ship them sometimes ヽ(＊>∇<)ﾉ)
Just Tsukimiya and Hanadori is not enough, later we have Hibiki and Kimikage to join the group. Hibiki admires Hanadori and is like another chūnibyō. Kimikage is Seri’s childhood friend and he grew up to be a masochist. He wants Seri to “punish” him.
Although Seri always find them annoying and embarrassing to be with, I think he enjoys their company. In the last ep, they were getting ready for college, and they all plan to follow Seri wherever he goes. Hibiki is a underclassmen, but he will be joining them soon. However, base of my observation I think Tsukimiya, Hanadori, and Kimikage are all rich. It was funny how they are like if college or Seri’s dream of being a teacher doesn’t work out, they will support him xD. I hope there is another season of their college life because it will be funny to see how that turns out. ^-^
