What real life disorder would being a chuunibyou resemble?
It's pretty real in itself and it's not a disorder.
Beat me to it.
Isn't just a phrase to say that a person doesn't want to grow and act more adult
Eight-grade syndrome is real, buddy. It's just not always about pretending to be demons and shit; it's explained in the first episode and most people have had light cases of it.
What are/were your Chuu2 powers, /a/?
Being a teenager.
Robotic tentacles. Kind of like Dr. Octopus'.
I still would love to have them.
Delusions caused by trauma of not being able to fit in with society.
It isn't some made up condition you know. It just isn't in extremes like Rika and Dekomori.
being in middle school
My left arm was mechanic, like Terminators.
this was on 2nd grade tho'
Being a kid.
Taking ayahuasca unceremoniously.
Take your pick
Using your imagination.
Schizophrenia. Seeing and feeling things that are not really there.
spending all your time on this board
Keyblade powers. Destruction of the darkness was my ultimate purpose for living.
A combination of autism and assburgers poisoned with cultural pressures, teenage hormones and high school dorama.
What I am really trying to say is that Dekomori and Kumin are shit.
My other personality mimicked Krizalid from King of Fighters 99, I always believed that one day I will wield flames. Sometimes, he pretends that he is singing live on stage with Linkin Park.
Dusk prince who had to learn the elements.
None. Why do you hate fun, OP? Try it sometimes, it's fun.
No, John, YOU are the autists.
The Dark Flame Master, actually.
Because the only thing cooler than fire, is -black- fire.
Shit.. I accidentally cut myself while reading this post.
I could travel through time, but only forward, and only at the speed of one hour per hour.
I want a Chu2 GF.
Can adults be Chu2?
Yes, I believe we call them mentally challenged people.
I thought about this a bit yesterday and realized there are chuunis fucking everywhere -
>Ghost hunters/paranormal investigators
>Goths really into the demonic/occult stuff
>Crystal healing / homeopathic healic / folklore/herbal "toxin cleansing" crap
>Priest exorcism = real-life chuuni fight
>Bigfoot hunters who actually go out into to woods etc
>Other cryptid creature hunters
>Conspiracy quacks babbling on about reptilians
>Conspiracy quacks babbling on about knowing some secret dark plans that will change everything (aka /pol/)
>/x/ and /pol/
Why are people so fucking stupid?
In a truly free and democratic society, people would be allowed to go full retard and act as stupid as they want to, as long as they don't break laws.
Co-incidentally these people would also have voting rights as well.. see where I am going with this?
Why do you even care?¨
There are niggers everywhere, but I don't go around proclaimin- oh wait.
A elemental manipulation and slight super speed. Not retarded levels of fast, just fast.
Well, Chuunis are a real thing even over here.
But cognitive dissonance and autism are quite high on the list, as well as post-traumatic stress coping mechanism
Fun things are fun.
Also people who fight with foam swords and throw spells at eachother. Forgot what that was called.
Chu2 sex would be fantastic.
>I'm going to unleash my particle accelerator into your matrix drive and thus create an fusional collider which will thus create a new universe!
/x/ is basically Chuunibyou: the board. If you go on there right now there's people spouting shit about how you can become immortal by not fapping and linking your chakras and only drinking milk and stupid shit like that, as well as those roleplaying threads about being vampires and werewolves and reptilians.
/pol/ are autistic neckbeards, skinheads, and the odd racist. Not quite the same.
You realize everyone who has fun is a chuuni at heart, right?
Film makers who make shit like jumper, Pacific Rim, Transformers, they're all chuunis.
Musicians who write about supernatural phenomenon are all chuunis, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, etc.
People who write this shit into anime and mangaka, and comic book writers who write stuff like DBZ, Star Driver, Gundam, DtB, Spider-Man, Batman, X-Men, etc are all fucking chuunis.
People involved in video game design, making shit with world destroyers like Bayonetta, inFamous, Armored Core, etc are all fucking chuunis.
Everyone on the fucking planet is a chuuni. It's just that some hide it under the guise of making shit for the rest of the chuunis, i.e. the ones I mentioned above. Then there are the ones who are adept at hiding their power levels, i.e. blackaboos.
There are the open autists who actually do incredibly stupid things to earn their name and as a result make everyone look bad for being a chuuni.
Then there are the ones who bury their chuuni feelings deep down inside because they're normal and too mature for that, when in actuality, they're the abnormal ones.
Everyone's a chuuni inside.
don't cut yourself on that edge
You forgot those faggots who watch cartoons all day and say that they are in love with a fictional character. Can you imaging it? Pretty crazy stuff.
Gravity manipulation, as in Gravity Rush
The ability to talk to God and have him alter reality according to my requests
blah blah blah, idiot's propaganda
I can't even enjoy Chuu2 anymore because of tumblr. I think Rika and Dekomori are tumblrfags that blog about their headmates and hate straight white cis males.
Laser Blasts, Time Slow
Did you even read the post?
the Sharingan of course
There's a pretty big difference with people getting hyped on an action movie, and those who take it to chuuni tier.
That's different though, the list up there is of "stuff that's not real but some people believe is and think they're directly involved with", which is similar to chuuni activities. Biggest ones would be psychics and demon-worshipping goths imo, those guys are fucking chuuni to a T.
Well, I think it's more accurate to say that most people have a little Chuuni in them. I know I do but I am also probably on the autism spectrum at least mildly.
But it's not true that everyone who has fun is a Chuuni. It's just one way to have fun - it's a young, bubbly, weird mindset, but not necessarily a bad one. It's another way of coping with and enjoying the bizarre world we live in.
The power to escape consequences. Or so i thought.
Except Rikka is in love with a straight asian cishet man who don't need no woman. The whole radical feminism thing is really not as big a movement over in Japan. In fact it hardly exists at all.
I became a giant
This is why chuuni isn't acknowledged as a disease in America, because half of the population never grows out of it.
For some reason I can't see Rikka being a tumblrfag. Shinka would be way more likely.
And that's why I love Japan better than the west.
>There's a pretty big difference with people getting hyped on an action movie
>coming up with a guy who is so powerful he fights aliens, and then when his anger peaks and is pure of heart he transforms into the legendary super saiyan and does a giant blast that can destroy galaxies
Nah, yeah. Creators are always chuuni tier. As I said, there's a difference between the autists who give it a bad name, i.e. not knowing when you're driving to use fucking telekinesis to change the traffic light.
>everyone spouting autism
it's like you're all stupid
it more resembles schizo or multiple personality disorder
I hope OP realizes that this show did not invent that concept and it is based on a real thing.
Autism is a buzzword on /a/, did you actually expected a serious and well thought psycological analysis?
You've clearly never been to a LARP session, civil war reenactment, a medieval faire, a carnival, or o-matsuri. Adults are just as chuu2 as kids, we're just more jaded about it and bury it under layers of conformity and etiquette. We become obsessed with work, science, the acquisition of wealth, and "the real world". We make fun of each other for having imagination and being creative and drown out these urges in ourselves with grinding busy work and alcohol. And then, 10, 20 years later, we find ourselves wondering why our lives have become so bleak and our existence so meaningless. Then, faced with that crushing emptiness inside your hollowed out soul, you shrink from it in horror and empty out a good chunk of your savings to buy a fancy car or a family vacation in an attempt to re-spark that magical wonder that you had extinguished from within your spirit in an attempt to seem mature.
Meanwhile, chuu2s who kept chuu2-ing after their dreams (instead of giving them up like you did) are either dead from having tried to live, or wonderfully wealthy, successful, and internationally celebrated for having created (within the best of their ability) the land of their dreams and fantasies into reality.
Batman's utility belt...
Sharingan (not really, but something similar) + Kung-fu laser/beam powers. I'm always fighting otherworldly monsters & disasters, saving the world, etc. etc. in my imagination.
I'm actually serious.
>rummages through my closet
Where is it? Where is it?!
AH! Here it is!
>Dusts off the article of clothing
Con... consuming different colored, uh, sugars gave me different powers, generally making me go berserk.
Oh my God this fucking hurts to remember.
>those who take it to chuuni level
I didn't say any specific fan base, yes it can be anyone. But don't try to make light of chuuni people by saying that normals like fiction too. It's not the liking of fiction that's bad it's how far they take it, so replying "you like fiction too, don't judge me" is no defense for that level of obsession. Those who bully chuuni are right, chuuni is a disease.
8th grader syndrome, duh
get a load of this goyim.jpg
Being a child with a healthy and active imagination disorder
>normals like fiction too
They do, you turbodolt.
Just because something is more normal doesn't make it less chuuni. Supernatural thrillers, Zombie movies, end of humanity assisted by not!humans are all fictional as fuck, and are chuuni.
It isn't more reasonable than being a dark flame master. Deal with it.
Just because you aren't using asterisks doesn't make your typed "actions" less cancerous.
Also, nice quintos.
Can I be the demon lord to your dark flame master, anon-kun?
>Be office worker in NY
>Hardworking, but quiet and shy
>Be chuu2 as fuck
>Be Wartime pilot fighting against Hitler
>Only to be shot down
>Be emergency room surgeon struggling to save life of bleeding patient
>Be devil-may-care killer
>Kills a bunch of lowly scumbags
>Gets executed by firing squad
>Be portrayed by Ben Stiller in 2013 movie
>Have name become associated with being autism-level chuu2
anyone from any culture can see that a chuuni is taking too far.
Just look at these autist
Let the world burn. It only worked in summer, tough.
I'd unleash my Dark Flame Dragon into her Heavenly Trench, if you know what I mean.
Chunni Karen would be the worst thing ever.
The ability to see a couple seconds into the future through my left eye. Very similar to pic, which is why I liked the show, even if it was pretty shit.
friend explained to me that chuunibyou is actually more like the kids in school who do socially unacceptable stuff to be cool i.e smoking in school etc
>smoking in school
not even going to bother arguing it's just how it be nigga
The power to open automatic doors and other similar things with a simple hand gesture. I still have it. Also imaginary energy bullets and blades from my hands. Still have that one as well.
I fucking love Monty on the Run.
>smoking socially acceptable
I dun't know... I played around with my penis. Does that count?
Not for most people but I still see teens smoking all the time
I agree, let's be friends. And women in anime are fucking amazing either way, be they stronk or not.
Controlling the elements
Especially lightning, best element.
If I had to describe it, it would be most similar to Enel's lightning logia from one piece.
I still make the poses from time to time
Called upon spirits from earth and heaven using a rock as a medium to make things perfectly.
I still kept it as a good luck charm though.
I perfectly absorb and contain all of the heat around me which has the secondary effect of causing the surrounding area to become absolute zero.
Back when I was like 8 my friends and I thought I had a hidden persona named "Power" I don't think I even did anything with it other than write it on my school books from time to time, I do recall one such event where I would stare at a pencil for awhile and a friend would quickly hit it across the table and we would pretend I did it.
