More or less independent web dude washed ashore in Japan.
More or less recently more less than more.

Fluent in conversational Japanese with a strong interest in languages,
not very academically trained though.
On the level of reading light novels for fun.

comment How to say “What's it to you?” in Japanese?
If you deliver it aggressively enough (which apparently is your intend), I don't think there'll usually be a comeback. なぜそんなの知りてぇのか、オマエ!関係ねぇんだろう。 ;o)

comment ambiguity with すっと
It's not supposed to be ambiguous, it's a word that has no clear translation, but that you usually understand in context. 気持ちだよ、気持ち! :-)

comment Why is 五右衛門 read “goemon”?
Was the original pronunciation goue or gōe? I guess actually goue, same as iue? That's indeed something of a tongue twister... :) Makes sense.

comment When did you last…?
@Pacerier I'd read this as "The last time you saw her was when?", as in "The event when you two parted never to see each other again happened when?"

That's actually quite different, there it says それだけ**は**.
