For a long time, fans have been wondering when or if “Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions” would return for a third season. The first installment of the romantic comedy anime, released in 2012, has been almost ten years in the making. We’ve since seen more imaginative adventures from starring couple Yta and Rikka in a second season and a feature-length film, but fans are still yearning for more. The story follows the growing couple as they negotiate life as “Chunibyo.” The word refers to a dreamer whose delusions of supernatural powers give them so much grief in their daily lives that they are diagnosed as having a major delusional disorder. The plight of these Walter Mitty characters, known as “eighth-grade syndrome,” sees them cling to childhood fantasies long after they should have grown up according to social norms. Details of a possible third season are scarce due to the lack of official confirmation from Kyoto Studios. Are fans’ expectations as unrealistic as their favorite characters? Here’s what we’ve learned so far.
Love Chunibyo & Other Delusions Season 3 Release Date
Internet rumors have long circulated that a new season could be announced before the end of 2021. TheCinemaholic raised doubts regarding Season 3 in 2020, however, the rumor mill is still spinning elsewhere online over a year later, so supporters’ expectations haven’t been dashed just yet. The first season aired in 2012 and is a one-off special aired in June 2013, but a true Season 2 didn’t air until 2014. The second season ended in March of that year, and fans had to wait four years for the feature-length follow-up “Chunibyo & Other Delusions: Take On Me,” which premiered in 2018. “Take On Me” received a 78 percent approval rating from the audience. A third season could be justified based on the level of fan interest. Maybe this will entice Kyoto Studios to appease “Chunibyo” fans, but with no official word yet and a four-year wait for the film, we’re guessing it won’t be until the end of 2022 at the earliest.

Love Chunibyo & Other Delusions Season 3 Expected Story
The popular anime is based on the same-named light book series, which was illustrated by Nozomi saka and written by Torako. Despite its popularity, “Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions” remains the author’s lone work to date. More of these enthralling visions – and the hardships of recuperating protagonist Yta Togashi and his full-fledged Chunibyo love interest Rikka Takanashi – are undoubtedly possible. The 2018 film appeared to wrap up a lot of loose ends, but anyone who has ever been in (or out of) love understands that the potential for conflict and problems is limitless. When you consider the series’ proclivity for fusing fiction and reality, it’s easy to see how the writers could construct a few more tales to keep us entertained after the feature’s conclusion. Perhaps we could hear more from the supporting cast, whose stories weren’t as well-developed or neatly concluded as the main characters?
Love Chunibyo & Other Delusions Season 3 Characters
Even in the absence of formal confirmation, we may assume that pivotal pair Yta and Rikka will play a key role in a Season 3 finale. That being the case, Jun Fukuyama and Maaya Uchida are the most likely candidates to repeat their roles; after all, they’ve been with “Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions” from the beginning to the end. More from their supporting cast of partners might be seen as well. Tka Takanashi, played by Eri Sendai, played a significant role in the film as Yta’s close confidante and advisor when matters with Rikka grew tough, so she may have more to contribute. Similarly, the endearing Kumin Tsuyuri, played by Azumi Asakura, is always good for a laugh because to her insatiable desire to slumber. Sanae, played by Sumire Uesaka, and Shinka, played by Chinatsu Akasaki, are both constants, but with a cast that has been fairly consistent across all ‘Chunibyo’ content thus far, it may be the ideal opportunity to introduce new characters. Fans should keep a watch out for formal confirmation, but in the meantime, Chunibyo, keep dreaming.
Where To Watch Love Chunibyo & Other Delusions Season 3?
As we all know that this anime will be renewed for a third season, Yta and Rikka may have a major role to play. However, since their love storey in the film appears to have ended happily, the upcoming season may offer a new couple for viewers to follow. You can watch the series here on JustWatch.
