What does ぎゃんかわ女子 mean?

6

From the lyrics from this song say the following:

ねぇねぇ君~ そこのぎゃんかわ女子~

I'm having trouble figuring out what "ぎゃんかわ" means. Is maybe this is a conjugation of a verb that I don't recognize? Maybe a grammer point that I am not familar with?

ぎゃんかわ is slang for “really cute”.

ぎゃんかわ → とても可愛{かわ}いい

Thanks, is there a general "conjugation rule" I can learn here for the slang? For instance do other ii-verbs also have this slang, what other other adjectives (verbs and nowns)? – Steven Sagona – 2019-10-01T20:36:18.643

1ギャン generally means とても but I feel its idiomatic usage is fairly limited. ギャン泣き comes to mind. That said I think other compounds like ギャンこわ etc would be understandable. Either way, something noun-like comes after it. – Darius Jahandarie – 2019-10-01T20:49:49.113

Though I guess the ギャン in ギャン泣き might actually be slightly different... – Darius Jahandarie – 2019-10-01T21:04:40.113
