Is theトイレの猫様 bit part of this week’s discussion or next’s?
The moment when you accidentally read chapters 6&7 last week since I thought it was one really long chapter instead of two… This book is advanced for where I am with grammar, but I am still greatly enjoying it and grasping the general gist of what is occurring is a great feeling!
猫は - cat + subject marker
一度 - one time
嫌な思いをすると - if/when (they) have a bad time
一生 - (their) whole life
忘れない - not forget
と言われています - it is said
It is said that when a cat has one bad time, they don’t forget it the rest of their life.
Thought it’d be fun to do a little breakdown for a sentence that gave me some trouble.
I still need to read Ch. 8. I’m really digging how slowly but consistently we learn more about the man’s personal story. Do we know the man’s name?
I’ll probably try to read it this week since the two chapters were still pretty quick reads. I think there may be a similar extra section after chapter 10 as well.
I had trouble with this sentence too! Thanks for the break down.
The beginning of Chapter 8 was so easy to understand for me, it used words from previous chapters and I felt like I could read and understand it smoothly. Also it’s so damn adorable
Then I got to the 2nd part of the chapter and had to eat humble pie sooo many new words. I’ll try to add some to the vocab list this weekend if no one beats me to it.
We should learn it later when we meet more of the people in his life
Edit: Page 110 of my edition. His name is 神田冬樹・かんだ・ふゆき
I feel like the そう covering the ear on the second to last page of c7 is because the mangaka didn’t like how they drew the ear lol
