Rikka Takanashi is the female protagonist in the Japanese light novel series and anime, Chūnibyō Demo Koi ga Shitai!. She is a "chūnibyō patient" who enrolls into the same high school with Yuuta Togashi (whom she holds feelings for).
She is voiced by Maaya Uchida in the Japanese Version and Margaret McDonald in the English Version.
She is noted to be a cute girl that has cyan coloured eyes and wears a yellow-colored contact lens on her right eye. She has dark-blue hair color and ties a yellow ribbon in her hair. She wears a pair of roller shoes instead of a normal pair of school shoes. Her ahoge occasionally reacts to her mood, in a comedic matter, sometimes moving with sound effects.
Unlike Yuuta, she is still suffering from eighth-grader syndrome. She believes she is a sorceress possessed by a "Tyrant's Eye" (Wicked Eye) that will reveal destinies. She wears an eyepatch over her right eye to seal her "Tyrant's Eye". Those who have seen her "Tyrant's Eye" are considered as completely signing a contract with her.
She is also rather clumsy, often tripping over and forgetting things.
- Rikka's name also means "snowflake". Her mother gave Rikka her name because she was pregnant with her during the winter.
