Why is that: in such unclear situation, i'm the only one here trying to protect whatever left of Suou 's dignity? xD

She was attacked in the bath by a flying squirrel, groped by a hobo ex-assassin, be restrained half-naked in an isolated abandoned building, then have to travel to foreign country with a group full of male: one of them 's a stalker, the other two unconsciously or not attempted to molest her....... Can we at least agree that her body has not yet fully exposed?


@Shinji103: i have to say that it's ironic at how your mother tongue language be rejected by foreigners ^^

1. "ano onna" -- I'm ready to stand corrected, hopefully as soon as possible, but I was probably the first person to agree with Shinji103, so I had to be honest and say what I heard this time. There seemed to be more sounds than just "wo" there, to me, when I listened carefully to another sub. Mistranslation very likely, however. How would one say "the thing with Yin," or "the situation with Yin"? But I do think it's reasonable (but not necessary) to connect Mao's earlier "ano onna" with this "ano onna," if possible. Seems more likely, and Mao's surprise could have been at the idea of killing their boss, rather than Yin, as I thought before. Too bad I couldn't find that 2channel discussion someone mentioned, which had vanished by the time I tried to link to it. I did see that there was disagreement over the phrase, in later threads.

2. Suou undressed Hei to dry his clothes, but didn't take off his underpants. Good girl. She also did not tie him up when he was unconscious, and when he murmured "Yin," she was not coming over to tie him up, but just to see if he was awake. That's what I inferred, anyway. I would be the last person to attack her dignity. She has plenty, and none of us could take it away, anyway. Her body was in fact "fully exposed," but that had no effect on her dignity. She even had the wherewithal to shout at him when he had her down, rather than whimpering like most of us would have.

.
The mistranslaation you made was with "mono;" "mono" does mean "thing," but not the "thing" you were thinking. It means "object/thing," as in a physical object.

To say "the situation with Yin" or "the case with Yin" it would be best to use "jiken" (case/incident), so "Yin no jiken."

Well we can only guess at this point. Even if that prase is really overused and we all know what it means maybe Bones want us to wonder if by "that woman" the mean "that woman" used in one of the previous conversation. I'd say that if that they really wanted to confuse us and make us think a lot about it they really nailed it Or it's just as simple as it sounds and we'll understand the reasons behind it later.
Either way I think it's time to move to the new thread

A bit late in posting my thoughts but here they are:

If i thought the new contractors in the series were stupid well then suou really takes the cake here. I mean you have to wonder whether the writers were so creatively bankrupt that they had to come up with this silly nonsense. And predictably so, pretty blond boy dies at the hands of his love who was spared to be served as fodder plot closure in the last few episodes.

That said, what i did enjoy was mao's return as a furry. Its so cool that Hei has gotten his beloved sidekick back and July as the new doll replacement to boot!

Indeed.

Just a note though, BSS's translator's thoughts on that line:

Quote:
Now, to clear up some confusion in episode 3. When Mao asks where Yin is, Hei replies with "Yin... I... I will kill 'her.'". It's hard to translate the first line when Hei doesn't use any verbs. Some ideas as to what he might have meant may be:

"I left Yin to die."

or

"I abandoned Yin."

Something along those lines, though I can't be sure of course. But this means that the person he means to kill doesn't exactly mean that it's Yin, but most likely the person who caused Yin to "die", be taken away from Hei or cause whatever happened to her. The best answer to this though is to wait and continue watching DtB as the story unfolds, which I'm sure you all will.
I posted on ep 4's thread, but it's probably more relevant here.

I was out of town since a whole month, that I was unable to keep track of this series. My last post was in concern to the second episode, but, fortunately, today I've returned to start catching up.
