anime and manga fans outside of japón have adopted many Japanese words and phrases. Some of these words have been misinterpreted, reinterpreted o undergone significant change in meaning. In addition, a variety of terms relating to anime and manga and the associated fandom have arisen, either por translation/transliteration from Japanese o as part of the shared slang o jargon of the subculture.
In some cases English and Japanese have contributed in complex ways to the formation of new words in either o both languages (e.g. Hentai—"H"—Ecchi).
