Adaptation based on light novel series and Vocaloid song hits Japanese TV on October 04, 2019
The "chunibyou" is strong in a new preview video for Chubyou Gekihatsu-Boy ("Young disease outburst boy"), an upcoming TV anime based on a series of light novels and the 2015 Vocaloid song by rerulili and kagomeP about a high school girl who gets roped into being friends with a group of boys suffering from severe delusions of grandeur.
The story of Chubyou Gekihatsu-Boy follows Mizuki Kyoji, an ordinary high school student who transfers to a new school about halfway through her high school career. After changing schools, Mizuki encounters five young men who are suffering from "chunibyou": Noda, a young man who wants to be a superhero; Takashima, a handsome young man who is also an incorrigible otaku; Nakamura, a young man who claims to be the reincarnation of an angel or a devil; Tsukumo, a young man who claims to be a secret political power broker; and Mikuriya, a young man who seems normal at first, but who is actually an extremely narcissistic (and tone-deaf) would-be idol.
Chubyou Gekihatsu-Boy is directed by Kazuya Ichikawa and features animation production by Studio Deen. The series will broadcast in Japan on Tokyo MX, TV Aichi, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, and BS11 beginning on October 04, 2019, with an additional broadcast to follow on AT-X beginning on October 09, 2019.
