A: The exact pronunciation of it is Chun-nee-byon, to begin with. It is a term made in Japan. 中二病 most likely to occur to teenage boys & girls who are undergoing a lot of mental and physical changes. During this period, they develop their own point of view and sometimes fall into a pitfall that makes them think themselves as specialists who are superior to other human beings. This is what we call Chunibyon and it can lead to various irregular actions such as acting like characters in anime or drama (When I was in Chunibyon, I tried not to smile to look serious)
