Japanese term or phrase: bort
used in a conversation about anime, I am not even sure if it has anything in particular to do with anime though.

English translation:A reference to Jeremy Bort?
Explanation:
The word bort is definitely not Japanese as it's impossible to have "r" and "t" next to each other.

As this word arises in the context of anime, it could be a reference to Jeremy Bort who writes reviews of anime and computer games.

It also has a meaning in English as fragments of diamond, which might arise when discussing anime (but that's a bit of a stretch).
