Hi this is uncle! How are you doing? This time, uncle will teach you some good Japanese phrase that will help your Japanese idol otaku life. Are you ready? This is time for uncle Japanese!

Firstly, I will introduce a really important word for Japanese idol otaku, that is, “Resu”. “Resu” means “response” in English. Response from your favorite idol includes something like when the idol points at you with her finger, or waving her hand at you, or maybe an eye contact during her singing. These are all “Resu” from your favorite idol, which is very important for otaku, since the “Wota-life” is based on getting “Resu”. This is “Wota-life”.

We sometimes use the term, “No look, No resu”. If an idol perfectly ignores you during the live, this is called “No look, No resu”.
“Oh today, I got no look, no resu…”. This is a pity thing for Japanese idol otakus.

Also, sometimes we use “Resu Kaishuu shita”. “Kaishuu” means “getting”, so getting a “resu” from idol is called “Resu Kaishuu”. “Resu Kaishuu” is the idol otaku’s mission, and you should be like a Resu-getting machine. You should get as many Resu from idols during the live performance.

This was the first time of Uncle Japanese, and you must remember the word “Resu” in idol events.
Goodbye! Have a nice day!
