A trailer for Kyoto Animation’s latest project She Has Adolescent Delusions, but I want to Love Her is streaming on the official website or the anime. The anime is based on what comedian Hikaru Ijūin terms “Chū-2 byō” or “middle-school second-grade disease” which covers adolescent thoughts that teenagers have like delusions of grandeur.
Yūta Togashi is a boy who used to suffer from something called “Chū-2 byō”. However he outgrew this phase when he entered high school. His girlfriend Rikka Takanashi still has this problem but things are ticking along nicely between the two of them until, wouldn’t you know it, another cute girl who used to be Togashi’s friend in middle school appears and she is also suffering from the same syndrome. She is Satone Shichimiya and she will cause all sorts of chaos.
This anime is based on Torako’s novel of the same name which received an honourable mention in the novel category at the first Kyoto Animation Award program. Kyoto Animation began publishing the novel with illustrations by studio animator Nozomi Ousaka.
The anime is directed by Tatsuya Ishihara (Air, K-ON!) with series composition orchestrated by Jukki Haneda (Steins;Gate). It will air this October.
