  • Alternatives to "ganbatte"

    I use this word so much it's starting to lose meaning for me, I just robotically spit it out. Thusly, I'm researching some funky alternatives. After surveying various Japanese co-workers so far I have:
    - ƒtƒ@ƒCƒg@faito
    - ƒxƒXƒgs‚­‚µ‚ā@besuto tsuku____e
    - ‘S—͐s‚­‚µ‚ā@zenryoku tsuku____e
    - Å‘Ps‚­‚µ‚ā@saizen tsuku____e
    - K‰^‹F‚Á‚Ä‚¢‚é@kouun inotteiru
    - ‰½X‚É•‰‚¯‚È‚¢‚Ł@(nani nani) ni makenai de

    Anyone else have any alternatives to ganbatte, meaning the same thing or along the same lines? Idioms, comic responses etc. welcome. Thanks!

    "tsuku____e" is a good one, however, cant say i've heard alot (if ever)

    if you want to sound otokorashii you could go with something like "ouen ____eru kara, makeru wake ni ha ikanai zo!!!!"

    .... could however be useful.

      He already mentioned makeru.

      Try ‚â‚é‹C + all the o‚µ‚Ä / Œ©‚¹‚Ä / variations you see fit to the situation.

          Thanks guys, I used "______ ni makenai de" today. Here's something else, it doesn't mean ganbatte but it has an uplifting quality to it:

          "a____a wa a____a no kaze ga fuku yo" = tomorrow is another day.

          Any further input most welcome!

              You guys are sooooooooooooo gay.

              The altenative to Ganbatte is Oganbariyasu.

              OP,

              The meaning of the word isn't there for you, you bubblehead.

              It's ritual. Ritual, son.
