Yuta Togashi is a boy who, during junior high school, suffered from “chunibyo” (translating to “second year middle schooler syndrome”, or delusions of grandeur), believing that he possesses supernatural powers and dubbed himself the ‘Dark Flame Master,’ therefore alienating himself from his classmates.
Finding his past embarrassing, Yuta attempts to start off high school where he does not know anyone, free from his old delusions. This proves to be difficult, however, as a similarly delusional girl in his class, Rikka Takanashi, learns of Yuta’s past and becomes interested in him.
Each day Rikka gets closer to Yuta – despite finding her delusions irritating and embarrassing – accepts her. He helps Rikka with various things, including founding and maintaining her club and tutoring her. When he joins her on her summer vacation, Yuta learns that two years ago, Rikka’s father, whom she was very close to, died unexpectedly due to an illness, causing her to fall into her delusions. As Yuta agrees to help Rikka search for the ‘Ethereal Horizon’ which she believes will lead her to her father, they fall for each other.
