The days of ‘BokuHaka’ that I have spent with Koyuki with enjoyment and suffering,
The members of the Destructive Gods,
I can’t wait to see how they will start moving in the anime.
Please look forward to the follow-up.

The manga author’s illustration message
Because of his super tsukkomi (straight-man) nature, high school student Seri Koyuki really hates people
waiting for him to say something. The person who has an eye on him is the strongest “Chunibyo” second
grade high school student, Kabuto Hanatori. His appearance, speech and behavior, atmosphere, and even
existence itself are all filled with elements to wait for tsukkomi. Seri swears to himself that he will never
say anything to Kabuto, but he can’t keep himself from doing so. Then more strange students start gathering
around him… Laughing, laughing, and sometime cute. A boy high school student comedy starts now.
