View topic - Oh no!
I need help with something. I'm trying to find a Japanese interjection that would accurately capture the English interjection "oh no!" in the sense of danger heading right for you. I've been all through my books and over the internet today with little luck. One site said "ikenai!" but I couldn't confirm that with any other site. One site said "abunai!" but that's more of a warning to someone else.

くそ! kuso! - Said when someone is thwarting your efforts; or you are failing despite your best efforts.
しまった shimatta - when you mess up
あら！ ara! mild surprise (あらま〜 for a more feminine touch)
どうしよう？ doushiyou - What should I do?
Individuals may have different ways to express 'oh no'. Do you have a specific situation for your 'oh no'?
