Slang / Japanese youth/street slang and terminology
English term or phrase: tough female
Hello. I'm interested in Japanese youth, street and college slang terminology that's used for people. What are Japanese (youth, street and college) slang terms (katakana, add all the various Japanese dialects: Hokkaidō, Tōhoku, Kantō, Eastern Japanese, Western Japanese, Kyūshū, Ryukyu,etc.) for a "Tough female"? When you post your responses and peer comments please use Romanized Japanese, and please post as many slang terms as possible. Thank you. :D
