An example of tsukkomi in Lucky Star
|Moe Point||Tsukkomi (ツッコミ)|
|Moe Point Synonyms||straight man|
"Tsukkomi" in Japanese means "to rush into". in Japanese media (especially in manga), it means "sudden encounter" and "deeply inserting words", etc., which is roughly equivalent to "doubt" in cross talk. ("Is this fair?") and "vomit" ("Okay—not so good!") Two types.
In Chinese, the term for tsukkomi is Tucao (吐槽, Tǔ cáo), Taiwan uses the Hokkien "黜臭" (Hokkien vernacular character: thuh-chhàu) to translate this Japanese word, and the pronunciation of "黜臭" in Hokkien is similar to the standard Chinese "Tucao". However, the closest colloquial words to the meaning of "Tucao" should be said to be "lifting the bar", "turning off the old bottom", "dismantling the platform" and so on.
With more and more applications in ACG, it has become one of ACG terms. A cute girl who has the attributes of Tsukkomi can be called a tsukkomi. The role of tsukkomi in the work is called Tucao.
In ACG's works, most of the characters who take on the role of tsukkomi are those who have more common sense in character, or the subject itself is more silly than the tsukkomi, so that the remaining relatively normal one becomes the tsukkomi
In addition, the role of a tsukkomi has the effect of "covering up the irrationality of the plot".
The characters in the plot are arranged to spit out these unreasonable places, so that the audience has nothing to say and the plan is clear.
