1.「エモい」eh mo e

Japanese slang

It comes from “emotional” in English.

Young people often use this word when they cannot tell enough--the feeling is difficult to say-- but it is kind of feeling like excited, lyricism, nostalgic, impressed, touched, painful(sad inside), sentimental, momentary, short-lived, temporary, passing….

Anyway, this word is used at the moment/situations/things that make us feel really moved or attracted though they don’t know why/can’t express competently.
