Chuunibyou is a Japanese word that mocks stories of grandeur from both male and female adolescents. It has a very derogatory tone against imaginative individuals. The particular age group described by the term is second-year students in middle school. A person who has chuunibyou would describe themselves as a special person with unique powers. They would try to make themselves stand out from the rest. Their juvenile act of pretending to be cool is a rebellion against the conformist culture of Japan. Light novel author Saegami Hyouya describes three main types of chuunibyou in his novel Chuunibyou Toriatsukai Setsumei Sho (中二病取扱説明書) or “Chuunibyou User Manual”: DQN, Subculture, and Evil Eye. The DQN (pronounced “dokyun”) pretend to be actual delinquents, the Subculture kids latch onto alternative subcultures and Evil Eye daydreams of possessing unfathomable powers. Some examples of fictional characters in Japanese media include Yuuta Togashi and Rikka Takanashi from Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!, Ranko Kanzaki from The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls, Yoshiko Tsushima from Love Live! Sunshine!!, Gundham Tanaka from the Danganronpa series, and Shun Kaidou from The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.
