ふらいんぐうぃっち Vol. 4 🧹

Whether it’s true or not, it’s an easier way for me to remember it that way, than to learn ようで by rote.

I find a lot of “grammar points” that seem like a mystical thing that you just have to memorize, become a lot easier when you understand the underlying words/logic.

Considering a literal translation is “like fishing for rabbits on a spring day”, I certainly hope it’s an idiom. :stuck_out_tongue:

Is that a street light in the water?

No, it’s the moon :rofl:

Heh. I was just about to say that.

But seriously, the street light is in the foreground.

ch23, p112 – 今散歩してるとこです。
I don’t get what this とこ here means?

It’s a shortcut of ところ (something like place, thing, moment or the like).

Could it be this then?

Seems to be some American Indian spirit being: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kachina
Looks like they believe the beach rabbit is such a being.

Hmmm anyone has any ideas about what’s exactly Italian in this scene?

I suspect that’s because the sandwich it’s eating looks like an Italian Sandwich (which is an American thing but hey, details :woman_shrugging:)

Oh, “delicious!”. I thought Hamabe was putting a fist on its mouth like in a thinking pose, pondering what to say, not that it was kissing it :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks for the help!

Is this translation correct?

I’d say more or less, yes. There are some nuances that are missing in the translation, but it captures the gist (as of my understanding).

What are you wondering about or questioning?

Mainly about this sentence: それで帰ろうとしたらハマベーも車に乗ってきてそのまま
Or more specifically, the bold parts. Actually, I just realized that 〜ようとする can mean “to be about to,” but you have to open the grammar point to see that meaning. Okay, so I guess that only leaves そのまま。What does it mean here?

Also, when I read the second panel, I thought Chinatsu was talking about Makoto, but I guess that’s not the case :S
