Haruma Miura …

You only just turn thirty this year. You played the main male role in one of my favourite movies (恋空/sky of love). You have moved the hearts of many, including mine. It’s very sad to know that this has happened. I just hope you know that you were never alone.

Rest in peace Haruma Miura

KY語 as a term came about in reference to one of the earliest slang abbreviations using romaji, being KY. This acronym is shortened from”空気読めない,”which, in short, describes people who can’t discern the atmosphere of a room/situation, so someone unaware and kind of clueless. A lot of KY語 are mostly used on the internet, but some tame examples, like KY, are also used in real-life situations. Technically, some slang I have listed here aren’t KY語 since they aren’t romaji acronyms, but are still abbreviated slang that use romaji. 

General:

w: quintessential Japanese internet slang. Short for  笑(わら)meaning“to laugh”

kwsk: short for 詳しく,meaning “in detail,” used to prompt people to tell/ say more abt a topic

YR, ヨロ, or46: short for よろしく(if making the whole numberinto numerals, it can be written as 4649)

wktk: short for ワクワクテカテカ (anacronym for excitement)

ksnm: short forくそ眠い, ortired as shit

ktkr: means 来たこれ(this (event or prospect is implied) has come), basically means one is excitedfor a coming event.

Hshs: stands for 吐く吸う,meaning breathe out- breathe in, but the acronym reflects heavy breathing.

ROMる:the act of lurking (reading w/o posting) on message boards and chats.

うp: shortened from typing the English wordupload

こn: shortened form of こんにちは orこんばんは

Mjk: an acronym for マジか,meaning “are you serious?”

MK: shorterマジ感謝,which is like saying you’re “seriously grateful,” or “thank you so much!”

HK: shorter 話は変わるけど, or“changing the conversation/ the conversation changed”

OL: short forオフィスレディー, isalso used in irl speech. In that case, the acronym is read as オーエル.

Insults/Rude:

ggrk: short for ググレカス,which is like saying, “google it yourself, idiot”

sst: this is short for the expression”最低最悪詰まんない,”which basically means “boring as shit.”

超SS: shortened 超最低最悪,meaning “super lousy,” or “the worst”

BIJ: バカ言ってんじゃねえよ,meaning literally “don’t say stupid things,” or, for a phrase we’d use inEnglish, “cut the crap!”

BKB: this stands for バカバカしい,meaning “ludicrous” or “insane”

ABS: アホ、バカ、死ね!,,meaning “fool, idiot, go die”

ABK: アホ、バカ、カスfool, idiot, scum

ABM: アホ、バカ、間抜け:fool, idiot, dunce

DQN (どきゅん):stupid, anti-social person

OBK: stands for 大馬鹿, or“a big fool.”

AB: represents あんたバカ, orlike asking “are you stupid?”

SBK: そんなバカな: “that’sstupid, no way!”

JapaneseSlang that share an Abbreviation with English ones:

OK: still technically the same as the English, but inJapanese it tends to mean “great!” or something more enthusiastic. This word,along with GET, are frequently used in advertisements, but aren’t really KY語,since they aren’t abbreviations, but they’re good to know.

AM: the quick form of 後でまたね, nothing to do with antemeridian.

BK (びけい): ブサキモ: “uglyand creepy.” Poor Burger King.

GM: abbreviated ごめん,nothing to do with good morning.

jk: short for 女高校生(じょこうこうせい)nokidding involved.

おMG: …just the same as OMG, surprisingly.

Bonus:

orz: more an emoji than anything, but it’s supposed to looklike a stick figure kneeling to express an apology. It doesn’t fit as an abbreviation,but it’s cute so don’t be mean to me about it.
