5 Japanese Slang Words スラング[日本語字幕付]

Hey guys! Today I thought I’d make a video about some common
Japanese slang words used by young people in Japan. Now, obviously it’a not gonna make you sound
fluent or anyhting like that. But since they’re so commonly used, it can make you
sound lot more native if you can use them correctly. It’d be great though if I had someone
to help me explain them. JAN! Hey guys! Oh my goodness! It’s Jun come to visit me for the holidays!
It’s a Christmas miracle! Okay first word: Bimyou has a dictionary definition of “delicate” or “subtle” but these days it’s used more verbally and informally
to mean “not cool” or “not very good” There’s no direct translation, so it’s more of just a way to say that
there’s something negative about whatever it is you’re talking about. You can use bimyou for clothes, or speech, for example. Yada is a contracted form of “iyada.” “Iya” means that something is unpleasant or disagreeable.
“da” is the informal conjugation for “is.” You say “yada” when you don’t want to do something. it:s mostly used by children, so when adults say it it can sound a little childish. Like that last word, muri has several translations based on the context. The common usage we’re going for is “impossible.” But it can also imply that you’re trying really hard. For example, a common Japanese phrase is
“muri shinaide”which means, “Don’t overexert yourself.” When using it colloquially, oftentimes you’ll hear it said
several times in a row, like “muri muri muri!” which means that something is absolutely impossible. Yabai is another word that is primarily used by children, although these days you’ll hear it from young people as well. It has both positive and negative connotations,
and it can mean either “terrible” or “awesome”. Sometimes it can be correct to translate it as, “Oh My God!” You use yabai when something is really cool,
or you find yourself in a troublesome situation. Ii means good and ne is a particle you add at the end of a sentence
when you either want someone respond whatever you’re saying, or you’re making a rhetorical statement. Together, ii ne can have a lot of different meanings, like “That’s good, isn’t it,” or “I like it,” or “Sounds good”. On Japanese facebook, the like button is replaced by “ii ne.” Hey Jun, why don’t we eat out today? Oh, that sounds good. Where do you want to go? All you can eat pizza!! Why are you making that face? Pizza? No. No way. I’ll definitely have a stomachache. Pizza! No. Pizza! No. We’ll have pizza! I will have a stomachache… Pizza~ No~ Pizza~ No~ Pizza~ Fine! Let’s go eat pizza. Pizza!

  1. What's the difference between いいなあ and いいね? Because I once used いいね on a Japanese pen pal of mine and she said it's more of for when you're trying express sympathy??

  2. lol those scenes were adorable. Especially the pizza. I do like that you made actual scenarios, a lot of videos don't do stuff like that.

  3. Okay, I'm sorry, but Yabai makes me want to laugh because it almost sounds like "Yeah boy!" I know, that sounds dumb but I couldn't help it.

  4. これらの中でスラングといえる言葉は二つだけあったと思う。。。微妙とやばい。。。ほかの言葉は単なる日常会話で使うものなんです。まぁ少なくとも自分らが下手くそ演技者と認めてくれた

  5. I'm very familiar with all but the first one just through watching anime. I don't know how to feel about that XD

  6. あと、関東地方では、トッポイという言葉を使います。あいつトッポイねとか、いい意味では使いませんね。

  7. Am I the only thought that yabai n yabe are the same words? Most of time I used yabe instead of yabai (._.) Or I said the wrong word?

  8. ジュンさんがかっこよすぎる!

  9. I'm new to YouTube. I know this is an old video. Been watching you two all day old and new. I'm obsessed. My fav Youtuber's of all time. Ganbatte! Continue to do what you do! <3

  10. Whooooa ! I'm there in 2017, so this is such a funny throwback thursday ! Love the background music too haha <3 French hugs from Kanazawa

  11. I'm German, and since I was 4 years old, I often used the "ne" at the end of a sentence, without even knowing anything about the japanese language.

  12. its so funny going back and seeing how they approach making videos now versus then, its so awesome, and its so cute seeing you guys back then.

  13. Aww so cute the End, those all were all Japanese slangs only? ii ne, love you both can you both please kiss at a video onegai!!! 😚❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️✨✨✨

  14. I really am crazy for both of you so damn cute couple! Kiss kiss kissss kiss kiss kiss 😘 Come on.

  15. The scenarios you guys provided were excellent. Perfect situations in which to use them. And the acting was actually very realistic without sounding too exaggerated or unrealistic.

  16. Rachelさんはこの動画で超若い!2018年から見ています。JunさんとRachelさんはずっとユーチューブで頑張ってください。

  17. I’ve heard a lot of those quite often. Yada, muri, yabai, and ii ne. All but the first. These phrases are pretty common to my ears.

  18. So that's where yada came from. It's used in english the same way when someone hears or talks too long and cut themselves off with – yada, yada, yada.

  19. Bimyou has a direct translation doesnt it? It is like in america when we say ‘lame’ or ‘weak’. Say youre leaving a party early, a friend might say ‘weeaaak!’ Or say you got snacks but not enough for everyone ‘lame!’ Lol you dont actually mean theyre past their prime or feeble, theyre saying ‘not cool’
