気張らずゆっくりやっていこうね

'ゆっくりやっていこう’ means "I'll keep on going slowly", right?

1 Answer 1

「気張らず」 = 「気張らずに」 = 「気張らないで」

Those are the negative and continuative forms of 「気張る」 = "exert or strain oneself".

Thus, 「気張らず」 means "without straining oneself", "taking it easy", etc.

"Let's take it easy and go slowly, shall we?"
