Previous senryu

  1. 喧嘩して勝った子も泣く幼稚園
    けんかして・かったこもなく・ようちえん
    Kid who won the fight / cries as well / — that’s Kindergarden

Notes:

  • Congrats to @NicoleIsEnough :confetti_ball:
  • I made a unilateral decision to remove the final word “life” in the translation, it’s understood in colloquial American English and avoids introducing a word not in the original

Current senryu challenge

From the “various settings” volume:

  1. 待合室グリーン券を上に持つ

Remember to please use the spoiler tag with your translation attempts!


Everyone is encouraged to participate, no matter your level!

Online tools like dictionaries, sentence databases, and even AI translation engines are fair game and can be extremely helpful. Yomichan is particularly handy if you use the Chrome or Firefox browser.
