Sometimes when a character ends up in a bad situation they'll say a word or phrase that sounds like "matsui!" or "natsui!" It's usually translated as "not good!" or "oh no!" I'm curious as to what the actual word is.

It can be heard at 8:58 in this video https://youtu.be/RLwo30N0lUI

    So, you are hearing last names when you should be hearing an adjective. – l'électeur Jul 23 '19 at 10:21

My Japanese is not that good, but I'm pretty sure the word is "mazui" 「まずい」


The example 4 fits the situation.
