So there’s a Japanese slang term, ‘chuunibyou’, that roughly translates to “Middle School 2nd Year Syndrome.” It is used to describe the stupid phases people go through when they are 14, like pretend to be really hardcore, act like they know everything, say they have mystical powers, etc.
I’m so happy this term exists.
I really appreciate how in the end of HTTYD2 Hiccup was all humble and mature about becoming Chief of Berk while Toothless is just like, “That’s right. That’s goddamn right. I’m the fucking Alpha. Bow down bitches, fuck yes.”
