In Hyperdimension Neptune, there's a word they keep using to describe Noire that sounds to me like bochi. The subs translate it as "loner" and from context the implication is "someone who has no friends".
It isn't bochi, which means 墓地 "graveyard" (or 点 "dot"). And bouchi, bocchi, and boucchi aren't words, so I'm stumped. What word is it?

In the OVA, at 20:25, Noire says to alt-Noire "Ne, anata de, Bocchi na no?"
I think what we got here is a slang contraction, like "shouganai" for "shikatta ga nai" or "Domo" for "Domo arigato".
"Bocchi" in this case probably is short for "hitoribocchi".

Also seems to show up in -pocci variant; looks like another variant pronunciation.
No good idea yet about whether there's a regular process from houshi to hotti, though the ho/bo/po is regular enough.
