Get Your Fix Of Chunibyou With ‘Chuubyou Outburst Boy’
by Sage Ashford
A new trailer has appeared for the upcoming anime series Middle Schooler Disease Outburst Boy. Based, strangely enough on a vocaloid song, the series follows high-schooler Mizuki Hijiri, a recent transfer to a new school in the middle of the semester. At this school, she meets up with a bunch of boys dealing with “chuunibyou”, a syndrome with early teens suffering from delusions of grandeur. She meets Takishima, an attractive geek who prefers his women to be two-dimensional. Also Noda, who wants to become an important hero. Then there’s Nakamura, who believes he’s been reincarnated as an angel…or a devil! Lastly there’s Tsukumo, who claims he’s good with connections and “pulling strings”.
This new series is directed by Kazuya Ichikawa, who directed Bakugan: Battle Planet and Flying Witch Petit. The series composition is being done by Midori Gotou, previously responsible for Houzuki’s Coolheadedness and Loups=Garous. Meanwhile, character designs are in the hands of Arisa Matsura, with Studio DEEN (Kochoki) as the production studio.
A series likely leaning in the direction of being a reverse harem, this series will hopefully play a strong slice of life offering to shake up the upcoming season. It isn’t for me, but considering this season is another mess of isekai and half-hearted adaptations of games and manga, we need all the variety possible.
Middle School Disease Outburst Boy begins on October 4th.
