Some interesting marketing-related lingo from Nikkei Trendy below, in addition to the top hits of 2011. Take a look!
芽 here means ‘sprout’ or ‘bud’. Below Nikkei gives the definition of this term:
Nikkei notes that the title is for a section of the news that collects products from all sorts of areas that look set to be big hits. Products that grow to be big hits will be shown as in ‘full bloom’, while others further down the scale and still growing might be ‘80% bloom’ or ‘50% bloom’.
Below is an excerpt from another article and list of the top 30 hits of 2011. You can also check out a much more detailed look in English at this year’s top 10 hits here: Top Trends of 2011
