So, I’ve been working on a translation of an 朝ドラ series. I have, to be fair, gotten stalled for a long while, and it’s time I finally got back to it.
However, I need some help translating a pun into English. Basically, this character has a habit of looking at some random object in his surroundings and making a pun on it. So far I’ve been able to get by with a close approximation or a minimal translation note, but I can’t for the life of me think of how to represent this one in English.
The line is:
I’ve added the topic for clarity. The item he’s referring to is the dish he’s eating, which appears to be some kind of udon. I’ll hold off on giving my take on a literal translation so as to avoid possibly putting people on the wrong train of thought.
So basically, how do I translate both the meaning and the punnishness into English?
