Otakus are people who addictively love a certain thing. Today I'm going to quote some expressions that most anime otakus already know or should know! A quick article teaching the basics of japanese.
This article is aimed at otakus in Brazil, since in Japan this term is seen in a pejorative way. But all readers are welcome, this simple article teaches 12 basic words of the Japanese language that you find in many anime and manga quite often. (Kevin)
In this article, we will learn the following words:
- muri muri!
- moshi moshi?
- kawaii *-*
Every Otaku says BAKA!
It is very well known and is a slang term used in anime as well, it has variations such as bakayaro or boke, means idiot!.
Every Otaku says Urussendayo.
It can be interpreted in different ways, such as urusee or urussai, is not VERY well known, means shut up, or simply the curse noisy!.
Every otaku says Ohayo
This slang even those who are not otaku know, it may just be 'hayo if you are very sleepy. Means Good Morning.
Every otaku says Konnichiwa
Like ohayo, it is very well known, it has no variations, it means good afternoon. On certain occasions it can be used and translated as Hello!
When otaku says Muri muri!
One of the lesser known, but I'm sure you've heard in some anime. It can appear as muri desuyo, means impossible!
When otaku say moshi moshi?
Little known, as it is rarely used, only in a specific situation: answering the phone. Here in Brazil it is the equivalent of hello?
When otaku says Kawaii
Do I really need to explain? If you don't know this slang, it's not otaku! Means cute. You might want to read our themed article Kawaii – Understanding the cuteness culture in Japan
When the otaku says SHINE!
We can say that it is the hallmark of the character Bakugou Katsuki, from Boku No Hero, is a simple and effective expression, means DIE!… exactly that, just DIE!
When the otaku says Yabai!
The only expression on this list that can mean two things: impossible, or really? (yabai?). Few know it, because it is little used.
When does the otaku say Majikayo?
It has a simple meaning too. just like yabai? Could mean really? Or rather, in our own way: flirt?
When the otaku says Yamete!
Often used by girls in anime, when they are embarrassed or angry. Means stop this!
