Too Much of a Good Thing

Started off hilarious with the MC's antics and hiding his true self but it starts to grate on your nerves after about 20 chapters and were in the 40's now so it's pure cringe at this point.

Everybody but the MC is given an IQ to that of a crayon so the author can keep using the same worn out plot device over and over.

There has only been one joke in this entire manga. You get a scene of cliche anime bullshit, then later it's explained that he was actually doing it for some completely wacky and random reason. Lather, rinse, repeat. It ends up being a perfect example of the kind of trite writing it thinks it's mocking. It is pure hipster in that it gives you the wink and the nod to show that it is self aware that what it is doing is stupid, and then proceeds to do the stupid thing, because irony.

I don't understand people complaining about how edgy our MC is, it's the entire point of the story! If you don't find the parody funny or whatever then I understand, but I absolutely love it.
Good pace, funny characters, and fun plot.

I don't know what you have to be smoking to call this a masterpiece. The story is good in some parts, but the 90% of the story where all I'm seeing is a cringey edgelord just takes away from everything I enjoyed

At first it’s funny and still is throughout, but then it picks up into this plot that manages to tie in his chuunibyou with an actual and serious issue. It’a a diamond hiding in plain sight.

Agreed. This is a really engaging and funny series. The series doesn't take itself too seriously and pokes fun at the genre and itself with great comedic timing.

One of the better writers and series.

When your chuunibyou becomes reality but you are to dense to realize

Oh my god. Where do I even begin with this story… I'm gonna be talking about the LN in addition to the manga with this review because they are both great and the manga follows closely enough.

First off, it is super hilarious. It is like a way more silly Overlord. It follows a guy who is SO disillusioned by his Chuunibyou-ness that he is brilliant but the DENSEst dude ever. He wants: “To be a Power in the shadows” and is slowly achieving his goal throughout the story. Because he is a chuunibyou he makes up a story about the revival of the demon king. This turns out to be true, however, he just thinks that everyone is also being a chuunibyou with him and doesn't ever realize. He's also one of the most powerful beings ever but doesn't brag about it, instead, he uses it to put himself in situations that he thinks is “cool” while we the reader laugh and cringe. The characters are all likable and there is some great action too. 10/10 I hope this gets an anime.
