Serious; seriously, Really
マジ(maji),まじ(maji),まぢ(madi) ⇒Same Meaning
Maji is short for Majime. For example, say “Majime na hanashi” as “Maji na hanashi.”
Since Maji is a slang expression, it is often used by young people, but Maji is a Japanese word often heard by people of all ages. When we are friends, we don’t say “Hontoni? (Really?)” too much; we mainly use Maji. Women use it, but men use it more.
It is better not to use maji in the business scene. Instead, use “Honto desuka? (Is it true?)” or “Hontoni Anatano idea ga suki。(I really like your idea).”
Majide?? Omae Sugeyo!
“Seriously? You are awesome.”
