How would you translate this? 中二病でも恋がしたい! (chuunibyou demo koi ga shitai!)? Google says: "I'd also love disease in two!" I'm not sure that's right but I'm not proficient enough to know for sure. The show is superb by the way.

    It means something like "Despite my 8th grade illness, I want to have love!"
  • Azomb
    Thanks. So wow, 8th grade sickness has it's own word?
  • Vocoder
    Sorta. 中学校 is middle school, so shortening it to 中 and adding 二 to it means second year of middle school, which is eighth grade. 病 means illness, so add it on and there you go.

    中二病 is actually some colloquial word or slang that is used to describe a state of behaviour that is found in teenagers as they go through adolescence.

    People who have 中二病
    - Wants to become an adult faster
    - Thinks that what adults do are "filthy",detestable, etc.
    (Additionally, they may criticise politics and society in society)

    - Wants to prove themselves and gain recognition
    - Thinks that the whole world doesn't understands them

    Apparently, it's called "中二病" because this behaviour normally starts at the second year of junior high school.

    society in GENERAL* lol.
    Btw, I just learnt this word too.
    And some of the symptoms are hilarious (to me..? ).

    Some symptoms of 中二病 :
    - Unable to sleep at 2 am
    - Will answer "Outside" when parents ask "Where are you going ? "
    -Starts drinking coffee that doesn't even taste good.
    - Says "I want to be anything but an salary man/office worker ! "

    Hi, just saw your echo. It means [Although I have] chuunibyou (i guess u know what it means) but I want to be in love!

    Chuunibyou is literally translated as year 2 disease, form 2 disease, or moddielschool year 2 disease. A stage where a person is filled with childhood like imaginations, yet is faced with adulthood.

    中二 = Second year of junior high.
    病 = Disease.
    This means "acting like you'd expect a teenager to act" or something. As for the rest, I dunno. Study grammar.
    I could figure this:
    Chuunibyou but love (???)
    Haven't studied grammar yet.

    I suggest you google the Firefox app "Rikaichan." It will give you definitions whenever you want by hovering over.

    *facepalm* I have rikaichan installed but I didn't think of using it. Oh well. All of you are awesome~ thank you
