Hard Love Chunibyo & Other Delusions

Learn Japanese with Anime: “Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions” (Advance Level)

As you can see in the title of this anime, there are many lines specific to “中二病” (ちゅうにびょう, Eighth Grader Syndrome). Chunibyo is a slang, which they believe that they possess supernatural powers and behave so. The word “中二病” is attached as “病” (びょう, disease) but it is not a real disease. Since it is close to the behavior of adolescent boys and girls in 2nd junior high school students (中学二年生, ちゅうがくにねんせい), it is called “中二病” (ちゅうにびょう, Eighth Grader Syndrome). Watching this anime helps your understandings about the concrete Chunibyo words well. From just the viewpoint of learning Japanese, this anime will not be good. (But, repeatedly, this is an outstanding anime!)
