Kei Wai
けい わい (k.y.)
Japan flag
There is no English equivalent. A direct translation is "(subject) can't read the air (or atmosphere). However it is used in two contexts. 1) when someone says or does something out of context of the situation around himself/herself, he/she is k.y. (i.e. a random, spontaneous comment on an unrelated subject). 2) it can be used when someone is lagging in the conversation, when that person brings back a subject that already passed.
kei wai : kuuki = airrnyomenai = not able to readrnrnso obviously it means that you cant read the air. The idiom is in both Japanese and English, and they mean the same thing. So to say that there is no English translation is a lie. Comment by: Joe Delete Comment by: Joe   
It is used when someone makes a random comment or does something totally out of context of the conversation going on around himself/herself.rnrnThis can also be used to describe someone who is acting inconsiderately. For example, if a group of people go out to dinner and some people's entrees are delivered before others. If someone begins eating their food before others have received theres, then that person is K.Y. Comment by: Kyle   
It sounds like a specific example of the Englisn slang term "airhead". Comment by: docweb    Rated:4/5

Hey, get this: K-Y Jelly is a water-based, water- soluble personal lubricant, most commonly used as a lubricant for sexual intercourse and masturbation. A variety of different products and formulas are produced under the K-Y banner, some of which are not water-soluble. Comment by: Sakana Oji    Rated:3/5

"Gross". This is a "bad word". Some schools prohibit the use of this word. If used to describe a person, it means: extremely ugly and weird.
Don't forget that the word kimoi comes from two words smushed together -- kimochi and warui. Comment by: Dan Monahan    Rated:4/5
In Kansai the use Kishoi Comment by: Mizuta   
Hard to translate, unpleasantly SLIMY? I would say. In context, ( i was chatted up by a Kimoi guy, yuck!!) kimoi hito ni hanashikakerareta, Girls' talk . Comment by: deibitto   
I didn't know that kimoi was a bad thing to say and when i said it in front of my homestay mom i got a pretty lengthy lecture. be careful where you use it -.-" and as dan said, in front of adults say kimochi warui. bad feeling Comment by: :/   
wouldn't mazui be a "safe" word to use? i often hear it in anime for this type of thing. Comment by: SteelGolem   
well, "mazui" if for when a situation is bad. Comment by: yamiko aizawa    Rated:2/5

"oh crap", shit
"Kuso" can, in fact, be used to talk about the thing (feces) itself, in addition to being used as an expletive. It's also used in compounds such as "hanakuso" (boogers; literally "nose-shit"), "kusomajime" (overly serious), and "hetakuso" (extremely unskilled or clumsy). Comment by: Nombiri    Rated:3/5
"Kuso" actually means "shit" in both its English senses. "kuso suru" means to "shit" (verb), and you can yell it out as an expletive. Comment by: Rick    Rated:2/5
Umm, actually it is the thing too!! Comment by: Oredazo    Rated:2/5
This is a great four-letter sub for ye olde Anglo-Saxon expletive; it has the force and brevity needed to properly carry one's frustration as well as the English equivalent. Comment by: Valvicus    Rated:5/5
No, it also literally means "shit." This is the kanji: 糞. Comment by: Mike    Rated:1/5
Actually, it doesn't have nearly the force of the English "shit." Little kids say it front of their teachers and parents all the time. It's not polite, but it's a very mild verbal transgression. And the compounds, like "nose shit," "ear shit," and any similar combo you can come up with, are perfectly acceptable--these are the only words for these things that even many adults know.
