I hear this frequently when I watch anime. Google digging suggests it means cheek 頬. But this does not make contextual sense to me for the times I've heard it used.

For example, at 14:45 in episode 2 of Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood. The subtitles indicate nothing about a cheek.

Thank you!


In English, "ho ho" is a kind of quaint laughter used to express joy.


You've mistaken ほほ (hoho) with ほうほう (houhou).

1. method; process; manner; way; means; technique​

The character was talking about some kind of method involving bodies.

  • I understand. Thank you very much! That was quite helpful.
