Anyway, for those of you who wondered what does Majide really means, you’re not alone. Someone asked that on Yahoo! Answers, and out of many answers, I quoted these 2, since I think they are the best answers:
はい (read: ha i) means yes.
majide is soured from (真面目に) マジで (read: ma ji de)、マジ (read:ma ji) means true,real.
本当に=ほんとうに (read: hon to ni?) means “is it really?” so you can replace majide with hotoni. majide= hotoni.
hai majide=”Yes, really””Is it true?” or “no kidding”.
The other one is:
The Japanese translation of Majide (マジで？) is “seriously?!” in an inquisitive, yet exclamatory sense, meaning roughly “you have to be crazy.” The Japanese characters for the on-screen logo shown on the wall in the program read “Honki de” (本気で) (meaning simply “Seriously” or “Wholeheartedly”).
