    Japanese Insults?

    Does anyone here know any Japanese insults? The ones I hear in anime or Japanese movies are very lame. Oh and btw no one in this thread is allowed to mention the word baka because every anime geek knows that word.

    Well, for a start, you could tell us about the lame insults you've heard in Japanese movies. Most offensive Japanese insults don't sound very offensive in English anyway.

    That is truth.Because when most things are translate.They are not always change to the word that means what the other word means.Because in the culture that is been or is translate it means something elso. Like in spaish have a good day.If you translate every word to what it meant. It would be "pass one good day"So it depends.

    Anyways I heard some


    P.S.I don't put it spaish since I suck at spelling
    Perfection is dull

    Well they usually say something really lame about someone's parents or call someone literally a dog.

    That's yellow dog!, and 40 years ago it would have been really really bad to call someone a 'bakatare' (fool) which now a days has been shortened to 'Baka', and doesn't have the impact that it once did...

    For that matter, American insults don't translate well either. Comparing someone to a pile of excrement, or threatening to have sex with someone... please!!!

    I think I get it.

    I don't think I've heard any japanese insults.. hmm. "Baka" is the only one closest to an insult that I've heard. Haha, I said it.
