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!
