KyoAni's "Chū-2 Byō de mo Koi ga Shitai!" Gets Official English Name

"Regardless of My Adolescent Delusions of Grandeur, I Want a Date!" will run 12 episodes

There's been a bit of conversation about how exactly you're supposed to translate the title of Kyoto Animation's  (Haruhi, K-On!!, and My Ordinary Life) latest series, Chū-2 Byō de mo Koi ga Shitai!, generally with variations along the lines of "She's Youthfully Delusional, But I Want to Love Her!" Well, the debate has been settled. Tokyo Broadcasting System Television has confirmed an English title, along with a few other details.


From TBS' listing:

Regardless of My Adolescent Delusions of Grandeur, I Want a Date!

  • 12 episodes
  • (30 min. series)
  • Category: Action / Comedy / Moe / Romance / School

So let me tell you my unfortunate story. My name is Yuuta and when I was in middle school I had teenage delusions of grandeur. But I graduated from my dark past in middle school, and was on my way to sail smoothly through high school. That should have been the end of it, but there was an accident… which I kinda expected would happen. And because of that accident, I’ve now been forced into a contract with Rikka, another victim of teenage delusions of grandeur, and now she has messed up my life! Stop encouraging my teenage delusions of grandeur!!
