I am basically talking about the usage of ~ぬ in modern days. From a certain point of view it is still a kind of negative verb even though it has to be stuck within a 連体修飾語. But I need some serious research to elaborate further.

Nagi deliberately speaks a kind of informal ancharic Japanese that is quite detached from both the modern and ancient world .

I really have little idea on formal ancient Japanese, but apart from showing a negative meaning, AFAIK ~ぬ was also used for a variety of purposes. In particular, when used at the end of a line, it is most likely used as ~た/~してしまった.

eg. 京には見えぬ鳥なれば
O 京では見かけない鳥なので
X 京では見かけてしまった鳥なので


eg. 都近くなりぬ
O 都が近くなった
X 都が近くならない

@ Doraneko - I've been thinking about it for a while and I'm going to create a thread for advanced Japanese (I'll post my reasons in that thread). Let's continue this over there if you don't mind.

Needs to be moved to 'Japanese culture', it's not a direct translation you're asking for, but a discussion and opinions (preferably from natives I presume) which is related to social concepts.
It is an interesting topic you've brought up though, will be watching from the sidelines.

Not sure what it means, but for some reason it gives me the impression of something rolling, or being spun maybe.

Strange things you read, in short the dude on the left kinda discovers the true gender of the ... thing on the right >.>
But I'll let someone else with a more... subtle touch translate it for you panel for panel.

This is more a matter of legibility actually...



What the heck does it say after "Pantsu mie" (lower, center, a bit to the left)? *tilts head* Is that even Japanese? Looks sorta like "Cry" written sideways...
