Summary

ok im almost on the lst chapter but theres something i m having trouble with, denji is about to finally kill makima even though he still loves her (theres a lot of context here that would be too hard to elaborate on)

dont mind the carpet

anyway in あんな目にあっといて, ik hes using 目 as in experiences but how should i interpret (会 maybe?)あっといて? im pretty sure its the ておく form of like the verb, but how does that fit into this context?

目にあう

to go through, to suffer, to experience (something unpleasant)

遭う by itself is to have an accident, to have a bad experience

あっておいて?

It’s basically the difference between ひどい目に遭う happening naturally, and being put in those situations by someone, i.e., Makima.

Jujutsu Kaisen is pretty pog.

Already watched the anime and don’t care much about spoilers. I mostly watch it for the cool scenes.

Yeah, you could make it your reading thread.

not much context here but how does 同 work is it like a set phrase?


(同二年)

It’s the regular meaning of 同 as a prefix:

1. the same; the said

Without context can’t really say much more than that.

i mean theyre introducing the characters in the club but thats pretty much the second panel of the first chapter so not much context to begin with

In that case I suppose they intend for you to assume that this is something the two characters already know about but that they haven’t explained to the reader yet.
