Welcome to the Nihongo Lesson feature. We strive to give you useful manga-based Japanese language tips and maybe even a glimpse into the translation process. This week’s lesson will focus on Kimi Wo Shinryakuseyo! JUMP START season is in full swing, and we have two very unique series this round. Make sure to make your opinions known by voting for your favorites in the weekly surveys!
UCHUUJIN means “alien,” or literally “person from space.” Kimi Wo Shinryakuseyo! means something like “Invade You,” and this series is all about an UCHUUJIN living among us. Main character Hajime is a Kayzian, but he’s not even the weirdest character in the series. His schoolmate Ria is as wacky as they come, and unfortunately for Hajime, she’s quickly convinced that he’s an alien. How will Hajime escape her inquisitive eye?
Chapter 1 of Kimi Wo Shinryakuseyo! was all about the GUNEGUNE. This word means “wriggly,” “wiggly” or “twisty.” Basically, it describes something moving like Hajime’s arm. And unfortunately for him, his GUNEGUNE arm is spotted by Ria, who then just won’t let it go. She tries everything possible to get his arm to go GUNEGUNE again, including pressing his nipple.
