You were wandering around the forums of KFU. and you happen to encounter words that didn't seem to be on your vocabulary. This list might help you. You can also ask here for any other words you've encountered in the group.

(new account: Miyo-chan02)

Word ~ Meaning (if you don't like reading the texts, might as well pay attention to the italics.. its a simpler explanation

fangirl ~ can be used to describe a female member of a fandom community. Fangirls may be more devoted to emotional and romantic aspects of their fandom, especially (relation-)shipping. However, it is commonly used in a derogatory sense to describe a girl's obsession with something, most commonly a male teen idol or an aspect of Japanese pop culture.

fangirl behavior ~ On one end of the scale are those that, while harboring a crush on a particular actor or character, are perfectly capable of understanding that the fulfilment of the crush is never going to happen. On the other end are the girls who are said to be obsessive in their claims on a fictional character, even fighting with other fangirls over who 'owns' the character in question. Fangirls of all persuasions are believed to be the largest contributors to fanfiction websites, sometimes disregarding the canon storyline of their fandom or altering it to fit either their own favored romantic pairings; or themselves into the continuity (termed self-insertions or Mary Sues). A popular culture gag is that celebrities would use their fans as an army to take over the world.

fangirl behavior seems to bother others especially when obsession enters the room. but then, do not take this negatively. it depends if you'll let yourself lose sanity over your fandom. which is of course not good. so chillax girls~

kyaah ~ a typical fangirl's expression. simplified as squealing.
~~"kyaah-ed" ~ past tense of "kyaah"
~~"kyaah-ing" ~ present tense of "kyaah"
~~"kyaah's" ~ plural of "kyaah"
**you'll often hear from guys from manga mentioning girls who kyaah

fandom ~ Fandom (from the noun fan and the affix -dom, as in kingdom, freedom, etc.) is a term used to refer to a subculture composed of fans characterized by a feeling of sympathy and camaraderie with others who share a common interest. Fans typically are interested in even minor details of the object(s) of their fandom and spend a significant portion of their time and energy involved with their interest, often as a part of a social network with particular practices (a fandom). Basically, something that you are a fan of.

otaku ~ Otaku is a Japanese term for people with obsessive interests, including anime, manga, or video games. In its original context, the term otaku is mildly offensive, implying that a person is somewhat socially inept. Otaku can be seen as being similar to the English terms geek or nerd. However, the term started to be used by anime and manga fans themselves in a positive way, and today it is often used by those outside of the fandom to refer to fans of anime or manga. We use Otaku positively. Simply put, otaku also means anime fan.

bishounen ~ Bishōnen (美少年?, also transliterated bishounen), is a Japanese term literally meaning "beautiful youth (boy)". The equivalent English concept is a "pretty boy". Yes in other words they are those hot guys. xD

shouta ~ Shotacon (ショタコン shotakon?), sometimes shortened to shota (ショタ shota?), is a Japanese slang portmanteau of the phrase Shōtarō complex (正太郎コンプレックス shōtarō konpurekkusu?) and describes an attraction to young boys, or an individual with such an attraction. It may also refer to young male characters or even to adult male characters as long as they look too young. In other words, young boy characters or characters who look really young.

Fangirl President ~ this term refers to the creator of the group which is me. bea-chan_narulover is my old account. But due to reasons, this account is no longer active. My new account is Miyo-chan02.

Fangirl Facilitator ~ this one refers to the moderators of the group. Those users who can modify the settings of this group other than me.
