I HATED middleschool. 8th grade was just the most depressing school year of my life I JUST WANTED TO GET OUT OF THERE! Highschool has been an AMAZING experience so far....way more enjoyable than my middle school years

Not anything severely. Certainly had power fantasies and the like, like if I had ki related powers like Dragon Ball Z or Ranma 1/2, that was limited to the inside of my head though, so I didn't express much of those chuuni traits. I think most people have at some point in their youth, and certainly you see plenty of that on the internet now too.

Now that I know what it means... I used to be like that during elementary school but in middle school I changed after I realized how douchey people like me were. So I began doing my own thing and hanging with who I wanted to hang out with, not caring about popularity. I see so many kids like that now, it annoys the shit out of me when people think theyre better than others.

Is that what it's referred to as? Is that way Middle school for me was hell? Everyone is so hostile there. They always want a fight. Especially the girls. It's probably the point where there hormones begin to RAGE and they're always pissed. Even if I walked into a room, the atmosphere would suddenly be angry and I would have notebooks and pencils, and verbal abuse thrown towards my way.

I hated middle school.

Yeah most definitely, the weird thing is I just learned about this phenomenon today. Eight grade was around where I started watching Naruto on Toonami so I ordered the leaf village headband from the VIZ Website and I would where it everywhere... even to school. I also took it out on weekends to have training sessions and I would climb trees. I also was a frequent visitor at the local NYC renaissance fair, which did not help because I just bought tons of play swords.

I'm actually in 8th grade right now, and I guess I could say I'm a bit affected by it but not really. Although it would be awesome to have super powers!

Hmm, it was a mixed bag. Everybody was kind of a douche in their own way, bullying and bullied in turn. There was lots of fun, lots of stupidity, lots of anxiety...""""golden"""" age of MSN, starting to flirt with and date girls and all that.

One of the problems I have with several slice of life animes is that they take the easy route of extracting all of the characters of any worth from a school's 'social system', and making them all endearing in their own ways simply by demonizing THE CROWD. It's especially used on rivals and otherwise antagonists to redeem them in the viewers' eyes. Yes, there are people who 'don't fit in' and they are the important characters, while the only time other people interfere with the plot is by laughing at the charactes, bullying them, spreading rumours, telling them to die etc.

Did I just go off on a tangent? I just went off on a tangent...

If you're referring to Chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai then yes I have, and I think everyone has. When I was that age I pretended to be a ronin warrior from when it was showing on cartoon network. Other than that I didn't have it bad... I lost my imagination pretty quick

Have any of you ever been affiliated with 'Middle School Disease'/ '2nd Year Syndrome'/ '8th Grade Sickness', or have it now? If you are willing to admit to it, how is it, or was it, like? Just curious.


I have chūnibyō. I'm the Dark Dragon and with my attack Dragon Strike, I mowed down the lives both of demons and fallen angels. How it effected my social life? I have no friends, because I keep get my urges to become the Dark Dragon every now and then. In fact, this was the very reason I had to break up with my girlfriend, I couldn't keep the urges in check when I was trying to be a normal Joe.

Yes, I'm being serious.

I used to be one of the top students until middle school. Middle school was around the time that my personality changed and my grades changed with it. I guess I just got tired of the same old routine and wanted to break free of it.
