    Double malt and prolonged use of Valium has taught me :- 1)- Never pay money for anything in a seriously inebriated state. 2)- Japanese sex is kinky and not their urban thesaurus. 3)- Phrases to memorize along with the courteous konichiwa , if I visit the Harajuku station or roam Dōtonbori avenue or picnic under a fully blossomed sakura tree:- I’m new to Japan (watashu wa nihon ni kita bakkari nandesu) I only have three months to live.

    Sitting at the local Izakaya we passed this book over to our twenty something waiter and his pals to review. A titter here and there, a raised eyebrow. After a while he gave it back to us and said flatly "Nah, nobody really uses words like that." Well fuckity. Now its not a total loss, there are some funny curse words and slang in here, but be warned. The problem with this book is that the author gives you a false impression of how nasty Japanese curse words are. A clear example of this is found Sitting at the local Izakaya we passed this book over to our twenty something waiter and his pals to review. A titter here and there, a raised eyebrow. After a while he gave it back to us and said flatly "Nah, nobody really uses words like that." Well fuckity. Now its not a total loss, there are some funny curse words and slang in here, but be warned. The problem with this book is that the author gives you a false impression of how nasty Japanese curse words are. A clear example of this is found on page 97. "..._は頭にくるわ", ( real meaning "... makes me angry") is freely translated as "...get(s) my tits in a wringer". On page 95 practically the same phrase is interpreted as "...pisses me off." Both phrases are similar in that they mean being angry at something, but its the English that sounds nasty here not the Japanese. This happens throughout the book leaving the reader with the wrong impression, that the original Japanese is as colorful as the authors's English swearing. Some of the Japanese curse words used here are pretty vanilla but its Fargo's ability to string together poetry out of words like spunk, shit and fuck that makes the Japanese seem dirtier than it is. Other stuff like 栗 kuri (chestnut) or 豆 mame (bean) as slang for clit... okay. Maybe its a Roppongi thing. In his defense, Fargo tells us in the foreword that context in Japanese is everything. It should also be mentioned that delivery plays a huge part in making your Japanese sound nasty. That kind of thing is hard to convey on the written page. Dirty Japanese is better used as a guide to understanding the dirty language words you hear than as a phrase book. Overall, not bad, just not entirely as advertised.

    An alright book; it has some nice phrases but lacks the proper composition and it's hard to take it seriously.

    Pas mal, j'ai pu retrouver beaucoup d'expressions que j'entends dans les animes et que je n'arrivais pas à comprendre. Les observations sur la vie quotidienne japonaise sont assez intéressantes et drôles, et sortent des clichés sur le Japon ; l'approche gros bourrin qui ne pense qu'à se mettre des cuites est parfois un peu lassante.

    Some of the slang terms were interesting, if not terribly useful. Also, many of the meanings or romaji were incorrect, so don't pick up this book if you're a complete beginner and don't read hiragana/katakana.

    I bought this book when I started learning Japanese. The reasons were: a) I had a job and lots of money to spend in Amazon. b) I wanted to learn the colloquial Japanese I'd have never got the guts to ask my teacher about. c) It looked like a funny book. All my expectations about point C were met. Yes, it was an entertaining book. And I laughed. But I can't say the same about point B (and now, let's forget that point A ever existed, ok?). If any of you have ever studied something related to languages I bought this book when I started learning Japanese.

All my expectations about point C were met. Yes, it was an entertaining book. And I laughed. But I can't say the same about point B (and now, let's forget that point A ever existed, ok?). If any of you have ever studied something related to languages or linguistics, you'd probably know that languages aren't static but, like living beings, they're in constant evolution. My point is, I've read reviews on Amazon or even here that confirm what I was suspecting when I read this book some years ago: some of these expressions are outdated. So have that in mind if you're looking for self-learning book or if you're considering using them to get a Japanese girlfriend (or boyfriend!). Nevertheless, if you only want to have some fun, let me tell you this: go for it!

    I'm not sure how useful a lot of this will actually be; I don't foresee the need to ask where to find dope, or a good part of the drinking nonsense. While this book did help to clarify some of the terms I've come across, there were several points I found disagreeable, especially when the author starts bad mouthing elements of Japanese culture for no reason other than he needed to lengthen the page. Good for learning some of the more obscure terms that you might come across (although many are prob I'm not sure how useful a lot of this will actually be; I don't foresee the need to ask where to find dope, or a good part of the drinking nonsense.

Good for learning some of the more obscure terms that you might come across (although many are probably completely unused), but I don't imagine much need for many of them. Interesting and fun to read, this book takes profanity to a whole new level; though it is hard to imagine anyone who'd be foolish enough to try spouting any of this language without having researched it elsewhere beforehand (several of the translations really had nothing to do with the phrase, several even differed between the romaji and kanji examples). Great for a laugh, but not serious study material.

    I think this book gives a really good example of bad words and impolite responses that would put a "gaijin" (foreigner) in deep trouble,specially when used on older or higher ranking Japanese persons. This book is indeed a personal reference only as to how language in Japan can be heard everyday. But If your aim is to do business talk and impress people with your Nihongo fluency- read something that will give the basic and most polite way of speaking.

This book is indeed a personal reference only as to how language in Japan can be heard everyday. But If your aim is to do business talk and impress people with your Nihongo fluency- read something that will give the basic and most polite way of speaking. Japanese has a high regard on speaking in full respect. This book will be more useful in making friends on the streets of Japan and enjoying yourself in a good conversation somewhere in a bar or somewhere not so formal. Of course- in getting yourself a gf or bf of your own this is quite helpful. Overall, because I have read this and have learned a lot swearing and dirty words from it, I think I should rate it 4stars. I am kinda happy with what I have learned. I will use it sometimes, maybe =)

    I got this as a joke from a friend when I started to learn Japanese. It's funny in a school kid kind of way and some parts of the book could be useful. Overall, there is not much here you would dare say to anyone in a normal situation. I can't see going to Tokyo and telling some random stranger "I've got serious eye gunk." or a gem like "I have a zit on my ass." Still, in a juvenile way the book is funny." I think if I was a teenager I'd get more use out of it because it has stuff like how to hi I got this as a joke from a friend when I started to learn Japanese.

    Observaciones por el momento y para el futuro: a) Varias de las palabras relacionadas a prácticas sexuales son tomadas del inglés. Caso paradigmático kiss / キス (kisu). b) Parece que la mejor forma de incorporar slang oral son las películas de yakuzas de Takashi Miike (Dios lo tenga en la gloria) y cualquier dorama.

    Checked with my current Japanese teacher at school, told me that a few words are accurate, some never heard of them before and others not in used. I'm still checking at school but if you are a fan for anything Japanese or Japanese culture, you will like this book.

    While a fair amount of the book is scatalogical, there is enough that is not as well as enough that is socio-cultural commentary to make this a worthwhile read for folks who want to explore more natural and casual conversation with their CLOSE Japanese friends.

    The best book of slang to take to Japan. What other book will tell you how to order the best of Japanese cuisine, identify a foot fetishist, or introduce yourself to your future Japanese friends in ways both formal and offensive?
