Today I learned that 鶴の恩返し is a Japanese fairytale Seems like there might be a few different versions of the story running around, but this one seems to line up pretty well with the one they’re referencing on pg 21-22.
(Here’s an English version if you’re not in the mood for Japanese listening practice at the moment xD)
(This version of the story replaces the old couple with a young man.)
At the time, I liked that it was mostly hiragana, but I didn’t know most of the words, and Japanese class in high school didn’t really cover grammar in any substantial way.
Maybe I should try reading it now and see how far I get before I run into words I don’t know or can’t figure out without kanji. (Edit: First sentence in, and I already need to look up two words. Scratch that, one word. The other word turned out to be a name.)
Cute chapter! I loved the ending. Poor Kei!
I love fabric stores, wish I could sew as well as Makoto! I only make small things like placemats, not clothing. I would love glow in the dark cat fabric. It reminds me of the fabric I used to sew a book cover for my daughter.
I only had time to read the chapter today, but it’s cute!
Now that I’m going back through it again now to add a few words to the vocab sheet (hopefully I didn’t add any mistakes), I have a couple of questions:
I understand this as something like “should I give you a ride?”, but what exactly is the こうか? Is it 効果 or maybe 請う + か?
I thought there was something about not being too conspicuous in the earlier volumes – but it seems that she’s gradually just started flying around and parking the broom wherever, without any problem of people seeing her doing witchy things. Am I just remembering wrong?
@windupbird oh I didn’t even realise it was a reference to a folktale, I thought it was just some kind of expression – thank you!
@2OC3aOdKgwSGlxfz me too, and I love the way he she talks with まこと! (Actually is Chito a he or a she?)
@Kappa420 I loved that Chito even chose any But he she does look very happy with his her cushion…
@Kyasurin I loved the the fabric shop scenes in this chapter!
Your cat fabric looks
