    I have always wondered if Chiaki Kuriyama’s nose was a failed plastic surgery experiment since normal Japanese noses are barely visible (my girlfriends’ noses can fit inside one of my nostrils).

    Maybe she wanted to be able to fit a dick inside….each nostril? (there’s probably already a JAV with that theme)

    GreyWolf @greywolf Dec. 13, 2013 11:38 PM wrote a good explanation on kotaku.com of how Dickinin™ may be come to be:

    quotingLEFTy_12x15 For those who want a real explanation, here it is:
    It’s a result of converting to and from languages multiple times. The original “じきに治る” Jiki ni naoru (The article missed the “o” in “naoru”) got shortened to “ジキニン” losing its original meaning. The issue here is the English pronunciation, because while ジ is read as Ji, Ji can be then be rewritten in Japanese as either ジ or ヂ. This causes more confusion since ヂ can be pronounced and typed on a keyboard as both Ji and Di, which gives us our Dikinin.

    That being said, where the C came from I have no clue, probably someone’s idea of a joke that the Japanese didn’t understand or notice. quotingRIGHty_12x15
