Kansai dialect – 関西弁

Kansai dialect or kansai-ben is the dialect that often heard if you are travelling to Kansai region, like Osaka. Kansai dialect sounds different from normal Japanese as the form and the grammar is different.

the first time i encountered kansai dialect was from detective conan when Heiji Hattori made his first appearance in the Manga. i didn’t know anything about japanese language at that time :))

(i read the translated version, but that time i remember conan made a joke about kansai dialect or something like that)

now, ever since i knew about NMB48, I encounter lots of Kansai dialect in their conversation. I sort of understand what they say and starting to feel that Kansai dialect is very interesting and cool! especially when cute girls use it in their everyday conversation, it’s like  100+ points of extra cuteness come from the dialect. lol

and when today one of my friend who lives in Osaka talked to me about her interest in kansai dialect, i realized that i have never know exactly about this dialect, so i did a research on the Internet and made a little note of this kansai-ben vocabularies lol:
