    Today´s Top Question?

    Hi folks. I read and enjoyed pretty much the manga today.

    I´d like to ask you guys a question, for those who practice a proficient Japanese.

    What would be the best translation for love within the context of today´s chapter?


    The reason I´m asking is cuz I´ve been wondering whether Kishimoto in his native tongue might have actually meant by typing "The Power of Love". It sounds hilariously corny in English and I honestly think it fits better if using "emotions" (by setting, stablishing Uchihas as subjects with psyche problems) ; or what the heck, is the man nowadays defining love? (Which I really don´t think so)



    Thanx

    yeah, Thanx, i read it...


    It´s the same. Is there any Japanese speaker in the room? hahahah


    3 versions I´ve read so far and they all point at love? i do wonder. In Spanish or Indonesian, you got 2 words for love. One which you use specially for your wife, or husband or country, and the one for family and friends. So, you guess where I´m going?

    i´ve read some Japanese literature, and everytime in a while, few times in a book, I step by the word "love". To which I state it is not too often used so..
