Japanese Online Idioms (410)

1 名前: Anonymous 2004-11-26 05:15 ID:Heaven [Del]

I would like to know what some of the Japanese phrases mean that are mostly used online, on boards like 2ch, e.g.

There is DQN and (ry, for instance.

What do those mean? Are there other ones I need to know to understand an average online conversation?

Please enlighten me!

This thread refers to another thread, by the way:

I'd like to know more about the emotes, and what exactly they mean. For instance (;´Д`)'`ァ'`ァ means fapping, right? And (´・ω・`) is shy?

304 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2007-10-22 06:36 ID:qjIA+aw6

"ちょww"="hey!(lol)"
(´・ω・`) my name is "syobon", means Lonesomely.

インピオ is nothing more than typo of インポ. I think impotence is worth insulting term. Doesn't it work in English?
Anyway, to be exact, they insult the one who mispelled it when they use インピオ.

ちょww is an abbreviation of ちょっと待て(笑). Literally, ちょっと待て is Wait a minute! or Hold it!. In this situation, Hey(, don't make me laugh/this is hysterical)! lolol.

Other emocons are,
(=゚ω゚)ノ Yo!
(´ι _`  )disregard
Σ(゚Д゚;≡;゚д゚) surprised and gaze around
(  ゚Д゚)⊃旦 (´∀`)つ□ tea is ready
щ(゚Д゚щ) C'mon!
(((((((( ;゚Д゚))))))) shake like a leaf
(゚ε゚) I don't care.
(ヽ゚д)ヽ give me
(*゚ー゚) happy
(´-`).。oO(I wonder why...)
( ̄ー ̄) defiant laugh
(-_-) hikikomori
ヽ(`Д´)ノ pissed

┐(゚〜゚)┌ shrug

This reply is late coming, but マジレス might be translated well by an acronym used on alt.religion.kibology back in the day: "YHBT", for "you have been trolled." Expanded often to "YHBT, YHL, HAND." which continues "you have lost. have a nice day."

We don't have clever words to refer to troll victims, though.

323 名前: やってみる(´・ω・`) : 2007-12-30 05:02 ID:Heaven

ローゼン麻生
Rozen Aso = Taro Aso. Named so because he is known for liking Rozen Maiden.

フルボッコ
Fullbokko. I think it means to be beat up rather badly.

アサヒる
Asahiru. Does this have something to do with Asahi Shimbun, which is apparently very sympathetic to Koreans and all things liberal? I know a lot of net-rightwingers hate them.

物売るっていうレベルじゃねーぞ
"This isn't on the level of selling stuff!" I dunno what's so special about this, I only have a vague awareness that the ×○レベルじゃねーぞ is apparently from Gundam or something...?

カワユス
kawayusu. Another way of saying kawaii. Popularized by Shouko-tan, was it?

ググレカス
gugurekasu. Fucking google it.

能登かわいいよ能登
Noto kawaii yo Noto. I don't think she's all that cute, but it's been used for many other things... nanoha kawaii yo nanoha

コンマイクオリティ
Konmai Quality? Is this a gaming term and does it have something to do with Konami? I don't play games so I dunno. Does it refer to idiotic kid gamers who can't even spell Konami?

セカイ系
Sekai-kei. A "genre" of anime. I can only think of SaiKano, which I disliked.

みっくみく
Mikku-miku. Referring to Hatsune Miku and a famous song utilizing Hatsune Miku called "Mikku-miku ni shite yan yo"... but well it plays on the idiom "bokko-boko ni shite yan yo" meaning "I'll beat it up for you."

痛車
Itasha. Cars with decals and other decorations that show off your wonderful otaku taste. However they are painful (itai) to everyone else.

聖地巡礼
Seichi junrei (Holy pilgrimage?) Going to real-life places that were either featured in anime/games or served as an inspiration/base for locations in anime/games.

ずっと俺のターン
Zutto ore no turn (It's always my turn!) Wasn't this spawned from that video of an awful episode of Yugioh where Yugi was pwning HAGAAAAAAA three ways from Thursday? He kept attacking him although he had already won the battle. It's used to imply that something is going to keep going on and on and it isn't going away, I guess.

> Rozen Aso = Taro Aso. Named so because he is known for liking Rozen Maiden.

To be exact, he had been witnessed reading a manga "Rozen Maiden" in Tokyo International Airport.(Wikipedia)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aso_Taro

> Fullbokko. I think it means to be beat up rather badly.

Correct. It's an abbreviation for Full Power de Bokkoboko. Beat up at full power!

> Asahiru. Does this have something to do with Asahi Shimbun, which is apparently very sympathetic to Koreans and all things liberal? I know a lot of net-rightwingers hate them.

Wrong. To fabricate stories (based on alleged behaviour of the Asahi newspaper)

At the release date of Playstation 3, surging crowd caused panic in front of a game shop in Yurakucho. TV news show shot a guy who was shouting this line, and he became online legend.

> kawayusu. Another way of saying kawaii. Popularized by Shouko-tan, was it?

Perfect.

> gugurekasu. Fucking google it.

Correct. And offen followed by a description of imaginary ancient Roman thinker called Gugurecus.

Gugurecus
Gugurecus (date of birth and death unknown) was an ancient Roman thinker born in a city near Albania. His father was a bureaucrat of... blah-blah-blah.

> Noto kawaii yo Noto. I don't think she's all that cute, but it's been used for many other things... nanoha kawaii yo nanoha

No, Noto Mamiko's angelic voice is heavenly cute, seriously. (^^)

> Konmai Quality? Is this a gaming term and does it have something to do with Konami? I don't play games so I dunno. Does it refer to idiotic kid gamers who can't even spell Konami?

Not kid, but Konami themselves made this stupid misspelling in their games. Konmai Quality is used to tell how shitty Konami games are.

> Sekai-kei. A "genre" of anime. I can only think of SaiKano, which I disliked.

It's not only for anime but also all other cultural genres like novel, manga, etc. Usually in storytelling, a hero changes a social structure, and then the society changes the world. However in Sekai-kei, hero changes the world directly without any logical explanation. The most well-known example is Neon Genesis Evangelion. This genre bacame popular after Eva.

Perfect.

> Itasha. Cars with decals and other decorations that show off your wonderful otaku taste. However they are painful (itai) to everyone else.

Correct. But itai is not painful in this connection. The nuance is delicate, so I dare not to explain it here. >>325 is also correct.

> Seichi junrei (Holy pilgrimage?) Going to real-life places that were either featured in anime/games or served as an inspiration/base for locations in anime/games.

Correct.

Correct. Often associated with the card Berserker Soul as well as Yugi's line "Draw... Moster card!! Draw... Moster card!! (endlessly)" and the heroine's line "Please stop, Yugi! Haga's life is already ZERO!!"

331 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2008-01-08 10:26 ID:vblIsSyy

What do "ktkr" and "wktk" mean?
Thanks.

335 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 : 2008-04-27 22:16 ID:Heaven

>>334

# "wktk" = Shortened form of waku teku, which is an onomatopoeia for showing anticipation.
# "ktkr" = Another short form for kita kore, which is probably closest to "woot" or something.

I hope this is write.

And if I'm not mistaken, gdgd is short for "gudaguda" which means tedious, drawn-out or sluggish (something along those lines)

I used to be confused for a while thinking it was "gd gd" (gd being short for "good" in English) and wondering why boring things were being called good...

Oh I get it! Thanks so much, that was a really informative (and funny link).

I get the impression tacking "全裸で" onto everything is an old gag by now though, and only lives on in "全裸で待機します" because of the uh... delightful image of anime otaku kneeling in seiza position in front of their tv stark naked waiting for their favourite animu to begin

oh, bravo, very nice thread!
I've learned so much, so let me share with you some English idioms that you may not understand:
"Don't look a gift horse in the mouth"
Don't inspect the quality of a gift, just take it gratefully.
This phrase originates from the practise of inspecting a horse's mouth to determine its quality and health.

"Mind your Ps and Qs."
Behave nicely, and be mindful of your limits.
This originates from when bars used to serve beers in Pints and Quarts (Ps and Qs), a bartender would tell a patron to mind them, so they wouldn't get overly drunk and cause a disturbance.

Question: what does this mean?

くぁwせdrftgyふじこlp

Seems like someone mashed the keyboard with Microsoft IME but I see this ever so often, with only slight variation (like q instead of く or missing lp at the end, but the whole thing is basically the same).

As far as I know, "Merupo" refers to Merlin Prismriver from Touhou Youyoumu and a joke on Nurupo. I could be wrong, though.

It is one of those keyboard thingies that turned memetic for no particularly good reason (ever heard of DSFARGEG?). The keys that produce this sequence are qawsedrftgyhujikolp (basically, alternate between the top and middle row of letters on a QWERTY keyboard from left to right). Through a bizarre coincidence, this yields the perfectly readable "fujiko" in the middle, and that, besides the ease of producing the phrase, is probably what sealed its popularity.
