Japanese gal language: What is 'Agepoyo?'
Japanese “gal language” is a special slang used by young Japanese girls called “gyaru” or gals. Their lingo is hard to understand for not only foreign people but also Japanese people, too.
Here are some expressions to help you communicate with Japanese gals, or in case you wish to listen in on a conversation.
Agepoyo – high tension
Torima – Anyway
Kamitteru – Awesome like god
Pachikoku – Tell a lie
Pagal – Not complete gal
Ukepii – Funny
Oolong cha – annoying, long hair, brown colored hair
Arasick – crazy fan of Arashi (Japanese boy band)
Otsu hamunida – combination of “Otsukaresama” and “~desu” in Korean language
Atonsu – Thank you
For example, the word, “Pagal” comes from “Chuto-hanpa” (incomplete) and “Gal.” Of course, the gal talk is changing and adding new words all the time.
