Commonly Used Terms

Doujinshi is a commonly used term. It is the Japanese term for a fan made comic, whether it’s a comic made with a professional’s characters, or the fan’s own plot and characters. cosplay is short for costume-play, which is when you dress as a character you like, and act like them, claiming to to be them. Yaoi And Yuri and also often used, meaning gay guy and gay girl. A fangirl is a female anime or manga otaku, and an otaku is someone who obsesses; also fangirling is done by both fanboys and fangirls, it the verb form of the noun. Nani would be the second most commonly used saying, meaning, simply, “What?!” Kawai comes in third place, used by fangirls, meaning cute. Baka is probably most widely used term, and favorite without a doubt, because it means stupid.
