The light novel series Chuunibyou or Love, Chunibyo, and Other Delusions is a well-acclaimed work written by Torako, with illustrations provided by Nozomi Ōsaka. The series even received an accolade at the Kyoto Animation Award competition in 2010. The success rate of the show has us wondering about a possible Chuunibyou Season 3.
The title of the show holds the profound meaning of the show and is self-explanatory. The term “Chuunibyou” in Japanese translates to “Eighth-grader syndrome”. The syndrome so mentioned deals with the delusional reality created by early teens as per which they believe themselves to be in possession of secret powers. This highlights their desperate desire to stand out and express their uniqueness in the world. What makes Chuunibyou a heartwarming experience is its relatable characters.
The first season of Chuunibyou debuted with 12 episodes on 4 October 2012 and was followed by an OVA special in 2013. Season 2 came out in 2014 and the now the question of a season 3 has us all puzzled. Read on to find out more on the issue.
Chuunibyou Season 3 Official Announcement
There has been no official statement regarding Season 3 of Chuunibyou. The creators of the series released a movie titled Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! Take on Me in 2018. The arc followed by this movie seemed to have brought an end to the story as well. Presently, it seems very unlikely that there will be a Season 3 of Chuunibyou. Even if there are any chances of its renewal, we won’t see anything soon because of the ongoing pandemic.
Chuunibyou Season 3 Release Date
If the show ends up getting a renewal for Season 3, we can hope to watch it in 2021. However, the lack of any news from an official source has rendered us clueless as well. Let’s wait and see what happens in the future.
