Let's Learn Japanese: Ero-Kakkoii

Ero-kakkoii (Adj.)
Sexy and cool.

Ero-kakkoii is a new adjective coined specifically to describe j-pop singer Koda Kumi. The word is a combination of two previously existing adjectives, eroi (adapted from the English word "erotic") and kakkoii ("cool").
I'm not sure why it was decided that Koda Kumi in particular should be designated ero-kakkoii; from what I've seen in video clips and on album covers, ero-ero-ero-ero-ero would be more appropriate. But, as you can see, once you attain the rank of "SexyCool," it's only a short hop to "CrazySexyCool," and then...well, let me put it this way: Don't go chasing waterfalls.
Koda Kumi is on a mission to destroy all lesser j-pop divas, and if there's a chance she'll take out Hamasaki Ayumi along the way, then I'm behind her 100 percent.
