Yuuta Togashi is a boy who, during middle school, exhibited "chūnibyō", fantasizing that he possessed supernatural powers and calling himself the "Dark Flame Master", therefore alienating himself from his classmates. Finding his past embarrassing, Yuuta 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 delusional girl in his class, Rikka Takanashi, learns of Yuuta's past and becomes interested in him.
