I'm looking for a word that I've heard in One Piece


#1

In the 77th episode of One Piece at the 2:20 minute mark, one of the characters (Sanji) uses a word that I simply can’t find anywhere. Maybe I’m just misspelling it or maybe it’s some kind of slang but I’d really like to look it up in a dictionary and add it to my HouHou library.

The word sounds like まいたせ and the subtitles translate it as “Damn”.

I’ve tried different spellings like maybe まいたぜ or まいたせい and I also tried to search for “damn” but couldn’t find the word I’m looking for.

I don’t know if I’m allowed to link to streaming sites, so I can’t post the episode on here.

It`s probably まったせ!


#3

looking up まいった gives me ‘I’m beaten’ or ‘I’ve given up’. And I’m assuming that the ぜ/せ might be some slangish ending. I’m guessing this is probably it


#4

まったせ was also one of the candidates I tried but according to Jisho it doesn’t mean “damn”.
Then again it might also be a translation mistake with the anime itself.

Where are you watching the ep?


#6

just watched here, he says しまったぜ
漢字は仕舞った


#7

I was just guessing lol now I watched it and he actually says しまったぜ


#8

I’ve uploaded the short part to YouTube, are you sure it’s しまったぜ? I don’t hear the し in the beginning at all, though it might be an accent or something.

@jprspereira KissAnime.

It’s deff しまったぜ man, I can clearly hear the shi lol


#10

It might be the Kansai variation (しまうた)tho, but I’m positive it’s this word.


#11

Well my listening comprehension is still in its infancy so I could of course be wrong but for me it sounds like “ts maitase”.

Just to be sure, we’re both talking about the part 14 seconds into the video, right?


#12

Where are you hearing し to start the word? That’s just a tongue click sound. I’m definitely hearing まいったぜ like @Pitkin said.


#13

just after the tong click. this word’s accent is like shiMATTA so you can’t expect to hear it so clearly.


#14

Yeah man, just after the click. I’m pretty positive it’s しまった


#15

Meh, I still hear まいったぜ .


#16

What, it’s まいったぜ without a doubt. Are you not hearing the い?


#17

@Kumirei I’m with you on that. I hear it clearly.


#18

I hear まあ、いったぜ but I have no idea what the いった is supposed to be. The まあ is definitely a long one. I feel like the entire まあ、いったぜ means ‘well, whatever’, but I might be wrong.


#19

I hear まいったぜ


#20

It is 100% a tongue click followed by まいったぜ.

No, it isn’t a long “ま”, no, there is no “し”. ぜ is a very masculine form of よ.

From my understanding the meaning is akin to “I fucked up.”, or as the subtitlers wrote, “Damn.”

You can hear a native pronounce “まいった” here: https://forvo.com/word/まいった/#ja
