[Japanese language]Difference between “すごーい!Sugoooi!(Great!)” and “すごい!Sugoi!(Great!)”

Japanese otaku have gotten excited “Kemono Friends” lately!

They imitate words of Kemono Friends “すごーい!Sugoooi!” and “たーのしー!Taaanoshiiiii!” etc.

On iTunes store

“すごーい!Sugoooi!” means “Great!”
“すごい!Sugoi!” means “Great!”

But “すごーい!Sugoooi!” doesn’t mean “すごい!Sugoi!”.

What is the difference between “すごーい!Sugoooi!” and “すごい!Sugoi!”?

“すごい!Sugoi!” is ordinary adjective phrase and means “Great!”
“すごーい!Sugoooi!” is more casual adjective phrase and means “Great!” + emotional, innocent, energetic, childish etc.

This is “すごい!Sugoi!”

This is “すごーいSugoooi!”

“たーのしー!Taanoshii!” and “たのしい!Tanoshi!” (It was fun!, I’m really enjoying it!, Awesome! etc) are in the same case.

This is “たのしい!Tanoshi!”

This is “たーのしー!Taaanoshiiiiiii!”

In Japan, many people have been so tired from work, school, human relationships.
Kemono Friends may heal them by their innocence!
