(i ki ma sho u)
Let’s go!!!

SFromA Level 1

Today’s level one is words that you should understand, and it will be helping more fun Tokyo Ghoul.

  • 命 = いのち = (i no chi)
    → Life, alive,
  • コーヒー = こーひー = (ko- hi-)
    → coffee

Pronunciation for コーヒー is not the same as English.
Japanese pronunciation of coffee used many times in Tokyo Ghoul. Try to find it!!!

  • 血 = ち = (chi)
    → blood.
  • 痛い = いたい = (i ta i)
    → hart or dead body

It is an interesting point.
いたい has two means.
If you turn down the last word sounds “い(i)”, it means dead body.
if you turn up the last word sounds “い(i)”, it means hart.
But, actually, depends on the situation haha. When you heard many times いたい in anime, you will be able to understand which いたい.

SFromA Level 2
  • 気をつけなさいよ = きをつけなさいよ = (ki wo tu ke na sa i yo)
    → watch out!

When Hinami runs away on a rainy day because her mom is dangerous, then, she hit the human. The human, who is a lady, said this sentence.
If you use you don’t need to say last word “よ”
Thus, you can memorize “きをつけなさい” = (ki wo tu ke na sa i)

  • 何かあったんですか? = なにかあったんですか? = (na ni ka a tta nn de su ka?)
    → has something happened?

Kaneki and Hinami came back to Antique, and Touka asked the worker.
This is a very clear sentence. You can memorize this one, and you can use it.

SFromA Level 3
  • みんな安全のためにはそれ最善なんだよ
    (mi nn na no a nn ze no ta me ni ha so re ga sa i ze nn na nn da yo)
    → That is the best course, for the sake of everyone’s safety.

Yellow highlight is conecction words. Again, it is hard, so you need to know many kinds of connection words.
These are subjects and important words for understanding the sentence.

  • みんな = (mi nn na) = everyone
  • 安全 = あんぜん = (A nn ze nn) = safety
  • ~~のため = (~~no ta me) = for the sake
  • 最善 = さいぜん = (sa i ze nn) = best course

Sir, I’m sure you must be able to see a lot.

and that’s what You’re basing your decision in,

(demo, bokuniha/sousakannni/tewo/dasukotoga)
but when it comes to what someone is prepared to accept

when they act against an investigator, 

or what the rules are in the world of ghouls, I don’t know a thing.

So I must decide what to do after I see things for myself.
