Today's word is 駄々っ子 dadakko. It means "spoiled brat".
I first noticed it in Negima Ala Alba. Ayaka has a tantrum at a summer festival, screaming and crying, and Konoka and Setsuna both say that word. (After which Ayaka glares at them.)
But it was also the answer to a question I've had for a long time. In the last few episodes of Nanoha A's, when Nanoha is fighting againstshe is talking to Lindy and says something nasty about her enemy. They translated it as "a whiner" and I was curious what word was used in Japanese. Today when I listened to it I picked out dadakko.
