Second season of Strike Witches, episode 4, 19:18: Shirley shouts something that sounds to me like noddare. She screams it again at 19:25.


Coalgirls translates it as "You stupid idiot!" but I don't buy that. I think it probably is the imperative form of a verb that means "Halt!" but I can't find anything in the dictionary that makes any sense. (It isn't tomaru or todaeru because it definitely doesn't start with "t".)

Any idea what it is?

1 Sounds like good old "kusotare" to me.

2 And gosh, you just made me watch the entrance of Ursula and fighting over the fry. *facepalm*

3 Speaking of Japanese there, Shirley challenges Barkhorn to admit that fires were tasty, who replies, "maa-maa da na". For some reason it reminded me how 100-cmdr Kotokeil used it to characterize Lafiel and Basroil's performance in the practice battle. That left a deeper lasting impression.
