An expression I've heard in some Japanese anime: なんだと/なんだとう?
  • I've heard this expression in some Japanese anime; in particular, Jonouchi Katsuya seems to say it a lot in Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters, and I think I heard it a couple of times in Samurai Champloo. I'm not sure if it's なんだとう or なんだと. From the context, it sounds like a really informal way of saying "what was that?" or "what did you say?", sort of like "what the hell?" in English, but I haven't been able to figure it out for sure. Can someone clarify?
  • It's 何だと and you are right about the meaning.
  • OK, thanks! :)

Howdy, Stranger!
