A Japanese second-person pronoun, お前 (omae) has different sides of personality just like other personal pronouns.
This is the third episode of our Japanese second-person pronoun series. In this episode, the Tofugu crew, Kanae, Mami, and Rachael discuss the various nuances of お前, including how grandpas and grandmas always use it as a way to show affection to kids they find in bamboo or peach in Japanese folklores.
