About Kachuna


"Kare no Chuunibyo ha Naora nai" (彼の中二病は治らない) or Kachuna for short, is translated as "His Chuunibyou Cannot be Cured" or "He's Terminally Chuuni."
The main character is considered a Chuunibyou by his peers. "Chuunibyou" is a Japanese term that colloquially means "eighth grade syndrome," though people of any age could be considered "chuuni." The term describes people with immature delusions of grandeur, the sort of cringe-inducing attitude that people are expected to grow out of before high school. A Western counterpart would probably some sort of quixotic edgelord phase typically associated with socially maladjusted youth. The sort of behavior and beliefs that would be considered cringe by peers and doubly cringe for the person after they grow out of it.
In this case, our protagonist genuinely believes he possesses super powers. Aside from this delusion, he is a charismatic young man determined to create a video game of his own, though acting as the team manager puts him into a situation where he might be in over his head. He sets out to win the annual International Youth Game development competition alongside his eccentric club members and friends. Players must balance interpersonal relationships with the struggles of managing a team in order to finish their game.
