What's up?!

Yesterday after school, I was reading this article about the gyaru subculture.

Props to @tsundereputa666 for writing this article~

So, as a follow-up, I will be teaching you gyarugo (ギャル語). Gyarugo is a word literally meaning 'gyaru-lingo'. It's especially useful for Japanese messaging. Although the gyaru subculture is pretty much dead, these articles will attempt to revive the trend. Anyways, let's get to the point.

'POYO' WORDS

1. ぽよ - poyo: this term is a suffix just to sound cute.
2. あげぽよ - agepoyo: 'あげ' (age) means to raise; this is a slang word used to bring excitement
3. さげぽよ - sagepoyo: 'さげ' (sage) is a transliteration of the word 'sad'
4. しょげぽよ - shogepoyo: a slang word that is used when bored
5. らぶぽよ - rabupoyo: the term 'ラブ' (rabu) in Japanese is a transliteration of 'love', so this term is used when you are in love

Before I end this article, I just want to let you all know that anyone can be a gyaru. It doesn't have to be Asians or light-skinned people. Any color, any race, and any gender can join in the subculture and have fun! It's nice to revive the gyaru trend, and I really appreciate it.

But for now, check out my other articles, will ya?
