hazu shitara go meshi takuki
"if you miss that shot you aren't getting any dinner!"

What does ハズ [hazu] mean? "Shot"? Or "Missed shot"?

Oops you are right - I copy/pasted the wrong text. Gomen gomen.
That kanji was hard to read and I tried several ones, that was an old attempt.

Literal translation:
"If it goes out, no food!"

Better translation:
"If you fuck it up, NO SOUP FOR YOU"

It seems to me that your translation is too coarse.

What is "Kanjo wa ochita".

12 名前: Anonymous 04/12/29(Wed)05:59 ID:Heaven [Del]


do you mean "kanojo"?

13 名前: Anonymous 04/12/29(Wed)06:02 ID:Heaven [Del]

Excuse me?

I'm from Japan, but I can't guess what you mean..
Can you copy and paste the original sentence, I mean, in kanji
and Kana?

She fell.

Can I ask a question?
Are you Japanese?

17 名前: Anonymous 04/12/29(Wed)08:23 ID:Heaven [Del]

Well, I think this kanji (堕) figuratively means
falling down, going down, etc, especially in a negative way.

So I think when someone says "彼女(she) は堕ちた",
you may think she is nobody now,
though you looked up to her before.
Or you are jeering at her when she failed something.
The expression implies she did things very well before,
but now it's quite different.

What about「食べ物」?

21 名前: Anonymous 04/12/30(Thu)10:14 ID:Heaven [Del]

食べ物 is generally reffered to as food itself.
I haven't heard someone say 食べ物抜き like they say
食事抜き when they skip a meal.

How about "意味もあれば価値もある"? I'm trying to translate some manga that uses it, and I see it used on the web, often as part of a citation...

23 名前: Anonymous 04/12/31(Fri)16:22 ID:Heaven [Del]

Well, it's neither a maxim nor a cliche.
the auther must have invented it.

That's what I thought at first.

And I searched for it through Google anyway, and found at last
that 真実とは、問いかけることにこそ、その意味もあれば価値もある
on the net.
I think this means "it's both meaningful and worthy
to try to ask for the truth (even if you can't reach it.)"
And you may think you don't probably get the answer
you ask for.What you think is important is that you try to
do it, and you don't care what the truth is.
I think this phrase is very philosophical...

I didn't know the phrase, though.

Oh, and I forgot to tell you.
This phrase comes from Water Margin, a Chinese old story, which
is called 水滸伝(suikodeng) in Japanese.
Honestly, I haven't read it, though.

25 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 04/12/31(Fri)17:34 ID:Heaven [Del]

so it's like "fallen out of favour"?

26 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 04/12/31(Fri)18:01 ID:Heaven [Del]

"fallen out of favour" means " not popular any more"?

27 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 04/12/31(Fri)18:27 ID:Heaven [Del]


28 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 04/12/31(Fri)18:56 ID:Heaven [Del]

Yeah. "She has fallen out of favour." implies that something happened that made people dislike her.

29 名前: !WAHa.06x36 04/12/31(Fri)23:46 ID:skzspe+z [Del]


Ah, thank you! It seems the phrase I have is some sort of pun on that line, so I will have to try and work it into something understandable...

truth never show its meaning or value if you don't try to understand it.

31 名前: 名無しさん@日本語勉強中 05/02/27(Sun)04:52 ID:Heaven [Del]

That doesn't stop it being true.
