Daily JDM Word: Maru-Meh!

WOTD 2018.3.27 (marume) FIN

Today’s word 丸目/MARU-MEH (round headlight) is comprised of the characters 丸/MARU (round) and 目/MEH (eye), often used as a nickname for such cars including the New Age/Bug-Eye Impreza, as well as the early DC2 Integra.

MARU-MEH written:
* in Kanji (丸目)
* in Hiragana (まるめ)
* in Katakana (マルメ)

Other related words include:
涙目/NAMIDA-MEH = Tear Eye (e.g. Blobeye Impreza)
鷹目/TAKA-MEH = Hawk Eye (e.g. Hawkeye Impreza)
横目/YOKO-MEH = Side/Long Light (e.g. Kouki DC2 Integra)
4灯/YON-TOH = Four Light (e.g. Zenki DC2 Integra)
6灯/ROKU-TOH = Six Light (e.g. Dangun DC2 Integra)

BTW: the Casablanca Impreza also has some MARU-MEH…they were not popular and are sometimes sold for next to nothing…like this example, which is probably the cheapest “Good Buy or Goodbye” we’ve found so far!

Word of the Day: Zero-Yon

WOTD 3.14.2018 (zeroyon) FIN 3

Daily Japanese lesson! What do YOU want to learn?

Today: ゼロヨン. Comprised of ゼロ(zeh-ro: Zero) and ヨン (yohn: Four), short for a 0-400m drag race. 400 meters calculates to 1,312 feet, so it’s slightly less than the actual quarter-mile (1,320 feet). However, since Japan utilizes the metric system for units of measurement, they refer to the quarter mile as the 0-400 …similar to how Metric France refers to the Quarter Pounder w/ Cheese as the Royale w/ Cheese.

Brad Pitt’s Integra commercial

In the 90s, Burapi (Brad Pitt’s  nickname in Japan) was all over TV hawking Edwin blue jeans and the Honda Integra.  There were several versions of the Integra commercial, links below.  Feverishly high-energy and totally random, he finishes off each ad with tagline of “Integra, Nottegra, HONDA!!”  WTF…
