すーちゃん~4

Ready for the 4th story of すーちゃん! p.25 to 31. I’ll try to write more from now on, I realize that posting only vocabulary may seem too dictionary-like. “悪いけど… even if you don’t meant it”. Haha. I remember exactly the first time I learnt ”悪いけど” it was in the Ghibli studio film Ocean Waves. Not my favorite one, but a good one to learn Japanese. When I heard that expression for the first time in the film, I found it very strange because so obviously hypocrite. If you really think that something is bad, why ask for it? That’s why I find what Maichan says so funny. 権力・けんりょく power, authority 屈折・くっせつ bending, refraction, inflection, warping, distortion…. mmh つけ方・つけかた way of affixing sth…. ねじ曲がる・ねじまがる to be twisted, to be wrapped, to be distorted Well, to be honest, I don’t understand what Maichan is saying… I have searched for unknown words and I know all the grammar but the first half of p.26 just don’t make sense to me. If I were just reading for pleasure, I would just skip this part …
