In Aura: Koga Maryuin’s Last War, Ichiro Sato used to spend his life dreaming, pretending to be a great fantasy hero. Pretend heroics, however, aren’t much protection from bullies and social ridicule. Now determined to follow a different path and fit in, Ichiro thought he’d managed to give up his old fantasies. Until he encountered Ryouko Satou, who’s even more deeply immersed in her own imaginary world than Ichiro was-and is bullied just as cruelly for it. If he stands up for Ryouko, Ichiro could destroy the new life he’s trying to build.

But at the same time, the intensity of her fantasies and predicament reminds him all too vividly of the person he once was. In the end, it may just be that the only one who can really rescue this damsel in distress is the dream hero that Ichiro thought he had buried forever in Aura.

Bump from out of nowhere~!

Finished watching this movie just before it was set to expire on VOD. I didn’t expect much from it at the beginning but I was pleasantly surprised.

It takes the “Chunibyo” trope and goes beyond the usual two-dimensional story development, limiting it to make something “cute” out of characters, to a real story about bullying and acceptance. Other than the fortress made out of school desks at the end, everything was treated in a down-to-earth manner about a very real problem ( bullying…not chunibyo, duh ) and its very real consequences ( rejection, suicide ) , which is a welcome change of pace in the current cookie-cutter “let’s make moe out of everything” style we usually see.

Plus, it brought back CooRie ( ! ) which had not done work in OP / ED since like the mid-2000s

This title is definitely something now on my “to-buy” list. Anybody saw it ? How did the dub turned out ?

I own this and thought it was great. I didn’t expect much going in but came out surprised. You really feel for a character who’s being bullied.

I enjoyed this as well and the fact that it’s a movie is a plus in my book.
