What does Yasaburou Shimogamo mean when in episode 7 (00:36) he says: "Even for a Bohemian tanuki like me..."

I thought tanuki were a Japanese thing. Do tanuki exist in Eastern Europe?


I doubt Yasaburou was insinuating that he was from the traditional Czech lands. Instead he meant Bohemianism, which is used to describe people of unconventional lifestyles.

Also see: Urban dictionary, Merriam Webster, Dictionary.com.

  • a person (as a writer or an artist) living an unconventional life usually in a colony with others
  • pertaining to or characteristic of the unconventional life of a bohemian.
  • living a wandering or vagabond life, as a Gypsy.
