'sugee' is a slang word you really get used to ~ I come across it a lot while playing jap games. It's kinda a welcome relief with all these non-japanese wannabes raping 'sugoi~' Comment by: eriberri    Rated:4/5

It was explained to me that words like sugee and kimoi were usually used by teen girls. Comment by: Rob   
Ok so I've been reading all these words and the comments with them... Jesus christ. "Sugee" is REALLY common. Like, in schools and stuff. I use it a lot when I talk with my Jap friends, and I got scolded by my friend's mom when I accidentally said it in front of her =P It's not exactly a "nice" word, but it's not dirty. It's just the way that you say it (which makes it slang), the dialect or whatever, makes it not as appropriate to use with adults. But yeah, I use "sugee" as the English "f*cking awesome", and "sugoi" as the English "wow, amazing". Comment by: Miki   
When I watch game shows the people in their 20s (mostly guys) all go "sugee" instead of "sugoi". Comment by: Anya   
Sugee is used by guys, sugoi by girls. If someone is using sugoi alot, they got it from talking with girls. Comment by: Kobe    Rated:4/5

Sugoi is used by women here in Japan, not men. Men use Suge. When I guy uses the word sugoi, it's considered very unmanly. Comment by: Kingoffleas   
Currently living in Japan with lots of relatives, mixture of old and young. Sugoi is definitely what I hear most Comment by: GM   
Suge is used by a lot more then kids, and in casual situations, is a lot more common then sugoi. Of course it depends on the context. If you are hanging out with university friends, you will not hear sugoi in the contest of NO WAY!!! very often, but suge you will hear all the time. However, if its the context of "nanka sugoi ne!!!" then obviously you would not use sugoi. To be honest I hear suge a lot more then Sugoi Comment by: qQshA    Rated:4/5
Haha, my boyfriend only uses "sugee"! It sounds funny and I make fun of him for it, but I guess that's what's cool... Comment by: PoliSci   
I have heard "sugee" used by high school students, but it is usually male speech, right? It sounds strange if a girl says it. Comment by: BOO    Rated:3/5
Um. I live in Japan and it's Su-Goy-Ee. Comment by: Airi   
すげ is used by all sorts of people. It depends where you come from. I've seen people in their young 30s use すげ before.. If you hang around actual Japanese people (or take a class instead of the Internet), you'll find how it's used pretty quickly. And you won't end up being mislead by stupid usage misconceptions.
