Is chuunibyou real or just a meme? Have any of you ever been afflicted with Middle School 2nd Year Syndrome?
In fourth grade my friend and I thought we could control the wind and lighting like we had special powers or something. And I had an edgy goth phase in 6th grade, if that counts.
Imagine 11-year-old D&D types and kids reading "occult" books.
It's real, kids during that age will either try to fall in line as much as possible with what's popular and accepted, or start being weird. I think everyone can remember some shit they did as a teenager that was weird as fuck though, especially those of us who went through phases on the internet.
It obviously exists, its just not as amazing as it looks on anime and manga.
I actually believed that i could shift to another plane and used to autistically fight stuff all around the school grounds. I used to fuck trees too, with clothes of course. Didnt care if someone was watching because i was in the other world. Most of it was inspired by YuYu and Inuyasha. Happy retarded times i would say.
It's real, but the term is broader than just the "fear my dark powers" guys in that show.
English terms that would be considered forms of chuunibyou include "hipster", "weaboo/westaboo", "mall ninja", "edgelord", "soulbonder", "otherkin" and "/x/ poster".
Yes it is. I was one, and sometimes I still suffer from it.
If I remember correctly I think that made the news. Media reported a bunch of kids nationwide were making notebooks of people they wanted to kill in school, inspired by an anime.

It isn't even those things entirely.
Ok maybe edgelord
A long time ago, when I was just a little Anon, I had a crush on a chuuni-type girl. She identified as a spelling-casting witch. I thought it was cute, but ended up getting rejected. But to this day I have a soft spot for the character archetype.
As for me, I had my edgelord Satanist phase in my teenage years if that counts.
I did the ninja run a few times when I was in elementary school but I was surprisingly self-aware so I caught onto my shit quickly and cut it out.
My imagination is still stupidly active though and in private I'll often act out my favorite characters or some shit like a total loser. I just get so immersed in the realm of fantasy, it's so much more interesting than real life of course I'd love to get as close to that as possible.

I do this too
I act and dance around my room all the time like a faggot, lost in my imagination
As long as no one sees me...
That's why the door must be locked at all times, especially if I have my headphones on

Fuck. I still remember what I used to say when playing around with my friends.
I knew they thought I was just playing around, but for me it was really cool.
I had the powers of ice, lightning and of course, darkness. It went something like this:
"Amidst the cold and lonely darkness that is the future, there is always a spark of hope! I am the light that shines in the darkness, Midnight Sun!" followed by a pose.
It was so dumb.
Not really. I just read a lot, which happened to cover basic mythology and random wikipedia articles. I know someone who says he learned super obscure mythology and tried to teach himself hieroglyphics.
When I was 10/11 I would run around with sharpened sticks with my friend and we'd pretend we were magic warriors. I'd buy those fancy looking rocks from souvenir stores and say they were magic stones and we both had invisible magic girlfriends. We made our base by a creek in a patch of woods. Kind of early form of chuuni.
