  1. In isolation DeepL will translate メスガキ as "female brat."


    But in the context of longer phrases I've seen it translate it to "little bitch," "meth head," "meshuggah" and in one particularly bizarre instance "anonymous scholarship system for orphans whose parents have been killed in traffic accidents."


    Have yet to see it use Pixiv's gloss of "sassy loli" though.

      While investigating this topic I discovered that the "gaki" is apparently written as 餓鬼, i.e. starving demon.  This in turn relates to the "hungry ghosts" or pretas in the six realms of the Buddhist cosmology, which are reincarnations of those with too much gluttonous karma.  It's kind of bizarre that that's the default term for "brat" though I guess historically it developed to specifically refer to a spoiled brat, i.e. one who is so gluttonous as to become a preta in the next life.
