Gachapon 胶囊玩具

    2017-December-18  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

日本的胶囊玩具最近在中国年轻人中风靡一时,请看本报周五的报道:

A tiny replica of an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus and a miniature cat squatting on sushi: just two of the weird-and-wonderful capsule toys that have become a multi-million-dollar craze in cute-obsessed Japan.

The industry is now worth an estimated 30 billion Japanese yen (US$266 million), with the fastidious attention to detail in the toys appealing to the Japanese sense of precision along with a well-documented love of all things “kawaii” or cute.

“When I see something I want, I keep on turning the crank until I get it,” said Shota Makita, a 23-year-old careworker on the hunt for a fun toy. “There’s a sense of excitement about not knowing what I’ll get,” said Makita, one of a growing number of adult consumers of capsule toys, known as “gachapon” in Japanese.

报道中的gachapon就是“胶囊玩具”,也就是 “capsule toy”,gachapon是个象声词,gacha是转动玩具自动售卖机手柄的声音,pon是玩具掉入取物口的声音,这个词既可以指胶囊玩具自动售卖机,也可以指玩具。
