Japan Word of the Day #17 – Gianism (originated from Doraemon)

doraemon-gianism-rinkya-japan2

 

Today’s Word is: Gianism (ジャイアニズム)
(actual pronunciation: jaianizumu)

Gianism is a Japanese-coined English that originates from a Doraemon character, Gian, aka Takeshi Goda.
Gian is usually portrayed as a school bully who always picks on protagonist Nobita.
In one episode of Doraemon, he said “We are friends, and are are allies, aren’t we? That means your belongings are mine, and my belongings are mine.”

doraemon-gianism-rinkya-japan

 

This utterly unreasonable motto of Gian has left such a strong impression to readers, the term “Gianism” was eventually coined and became a common expression (usually used jokingly) for anyone or any organizations with such selfish philosophy.

Do you know anyone around you who can be identified with Gianism?

16 Most Inappropriate Quotes Found in Doraemon Comics

Doraemon, as you may already know, is one of the most popular manga/cartoon loved by Japanese people. A cat-shaped robot Doraemon from the 22th century travels to the past to aid a young boy Nobita. It is generally regarded as a story about friendship, courage, and morals. It’s a family-friendly show.
However, if you ever read the original manga, you’ll find that Doraemon and his friends have actually said pretty mean (and funny) things from time to time!

1) “Only losers who have absolutely no charms to women would use this pathetic gadget. Do you still want to give it a shot?

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan

Nobita: “Absolutely.”

 

2) “If entire Japanese population is brought down to your intelligence level, the world would collapse!”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan2

 

 

3) “I’m afraid Nobita’s brain is retarded.”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan4

 

 

4) “You think too much, Nobita. You can’t be the most useless person in the world. There is always someone inferior.”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan5

That makes him feel so much better, Doraemon.

5) “I’ll diagnose you! Take your clothes off right here!”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan6

Nobita, you perv!

6) “How can they abuse someone as week as you!? Someone so pathetic, so dumb…” 

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan7

Nobita: “Now you are starting to sound insulting.”

 

7) To an army soldier in the WWII…
Nobita: “Don’t worry about the war. It will end soon.”
Doraemon: “Yeah, Japan loses.”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan8

 

8) Little Mermaid:  “I wish to have human legs.”
Sea Witch: “I will take your beautiful voice in exchange.”
Doraemon: “Mean! It’s only a pair of legs, give them to her for free! Look at this poor little girl, you heartless, stingy bastard.” 

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan9

 

 

9) “My model is the problem. He’s neither beautiful nor cute.”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan10

Nobita blames his lack of artistic skill on Doraemon’s appearance.

 

10) “Later. I’m pooped right now.”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan11

 

 

11) Shizuka: “It’s mean to make someone happy and then bring him down, even though it’s true he’s kind of dumb.”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan12

 

 

12) Nobita: “I don’t want to live anymore.”
Doraemon: “Like always.”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan13

 

 

13) Dorami: “What happened?”
Doraemon: “It’s all because of this idiot Nobita…”
Nobita: “Yes, that idiot Nobita… What!?”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan14

 

 

14) Nobita: “How come you are taking bath all the time? I can’t do anything to you, do you ever think about how I feel!?”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan15

We’ll report you for sexual harassment, Nobita!

 

15) Nobita: “I want a little sister who looks exactly like me and adorable.”
Doraemon: “Being both adorable and looking just like you is pretty much impossible.” 

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan16

Brutal, just brutal.

 

16) Nobita: “Let’s make it together.”
Shizuka: “Make what?”
Nobista: “Our baby!!”

doraemon-inappropriate-quotes-rinkya-japan3

 

 

Yes, childhood nostalgia is sometimes better left alone…
I still love Doraemon though! It actually makes me want to re-read all of the manga I’ve read when I was little.

Bento Friday: Doraemon in His Original Yellow Color and Cat Ears

Happy Bento Friday! Today’s bento features one of my favorite shows from childhood: Doraemon.
And it is not in the normal blue color we commonly see, it’s yellow Doraemon with cat ears!

How handsome! I love yellow Doraemon!
Did you know that Doraemon’s original color was yellow? The official story tells that Doraemon used to be yellow, as all of the other mass-produced cat robots of his model were. After his ears were bitten off by rats, he was so depressed that his cat ears and his golden plating fell off.  (There has been a few retcons in the past, a feature film 2112 Birth of Doraemon (1995) shows him drinking “sadness potion” after robot rats bit of his ears, which turned him blue).
