MoeManga Japanese Learning

Here are some of the keywords you may want to remember for your Japanese studies.

かわいい

かわいい [kawaii] - cute/adorable. The kanji for "かわいい" is "可愛い" and its katakana form is "カワイイ". "かわいい" can be combined with other adjectives like below:

  • カッコかわいい [かっこかわいい (kakko kawaii)] - cool and cute at the same time. "カッコ" is short for "格好いい" [かっこいい (kakkoii)] which means "cool".
  • キモかわいい [きもかわいい (kimo kawaii)] - disgusting but cute at the same time. "キモ" is short for "キモい" which means "disgusting".
  • エロかわいい [えろかわいい (ero kawaii)] - sexy and cute at the same time. "エロ" is short for "エロい" which means "sexy" or "erotic".

猫 [ねこ (neko)] - a Japanese word for "cat". Its katakana form would be "ネコ".

幸せ

幸せ [しあわせ (shiawase)] - happy/lucky/fortunate. Its antonym "unlucky" is written as "不幸せ" [ふしあわせ (fushiawase)] or "不幸" [ふこう (fukou)].

むにっ

むにっ [muni] - a derivative for "むにゅ" which is an onomatopoeia commonly used when you press something soft or squishy.
Like with "むにゅ", the pronunciation is a quick "moon-ni" and not "mun" as in "munchy".

にゃーん

にゃーん [ny-an] - cat's meow.

無視

無視 [むし (mushi)] - to ignore. "Mushi" is pronounced like "sushi".

ぷいっ

ぷいっ [pui] - an onomatopoeia commonly used when someone turns their head away and looks in another direction to show disinterest. Its pronunciation is a quick "pooie" but doesn't mean poo ^^;
