I have learned that the Japanese word for "comb-over" is the much more amusing "bar code." Seen any lately?
And if you've ever studied the members of the pop rock group AKB-48 (and who hasn't?) you might notice the careful sectioning of their bangs. I've learned this is usually called 7-3, as in "70%-30%" sectioning. Some crazy girls go for 8-2 or even 9-1.
Lately many young Japanese men are playing the "herbivore" role--they are called sōshoku-kei. They have feminine features, thin shoulders, dress kind of fem, and are very passive daters. Women seem to like that kind of guy here.
Then there are the more carnivorous men, who are more traditionally masculine. They're called nikushoku-kei. These slang are widely known.
So....which one is Darrin?
Wait: Before you decide--there are now two additional categories!
Kabbyatsu roru, or cabbage roll guys--you guessed it: they look like soshoku kei on the outside, but on the inside they are nikushoku-kei.
And then there's Aspara-niku-maki. You know, that asparagus wrapped in prosciutto appetizer. You can guess what this means, right?
So now which one is Darrin?
