What does Suki Suki Daisuki mean?

Suki Suki Daisuki is the name of a song by Japanese singer, musician and actress Jun Togawa.

It appears on her fourth album, Suki Suki Daisuki, as track #2.

According to Urban Dictionary, suki suki daisuki means: “I like you, I like you, I love you” in Japanese.

Togawa’s seemingly romantic song talks about a “love so pure you could call it violent”.

It describes an intense, anxious love between a young girl and a man that conflates love with violence.

In the chorus, she threatens her loved one to “say you love me or I’ll kill you”!

As one Urban Dictionary user wrote: “If a girl sings this to you, run! Run for your life since the song also has the words ‘If you don’t love, I will kill you!’ So hear me out now! Before you die!”

In the chorus of the song, Togawa repeatedly sings: “I like you, like you, I love you” followed by “Say you love me or I’ll kill you”!

The singer’s childish and demanding tone in the chorus creates the impression of an unstable relationship and a clingy/whiny narrator.

This choice illustrates an obsessive/demanding love similar to an English-speaking person saying: “We’re soulmates, say you’ll marry me now or I’ll kill you” to someone on their first date.
