    I do not think it is the nagoya dialect but standard. It slightly sounds old, arrogant and from a dialect. dictionary.goo.ne.jp/leaf/jn2/34019/m0u I agree with the meaning. – Keita ODA Oct 4 '15 at 22:48

    To me (resident in eastern Japan), it's dialectal. Being old doesn't mean being standard because Classical Japanese is an ancestor of western dialects. – user4092 Oct 5 '15 at 20:36

    It's the Kansai/Osaka dialect. Here it's colloquial and used mostly by young/"cool" people. – galki Nov 26 '15 at 7:04
