I tried looking up this word in Denshi Jisho, but to no avail. What does "ため" mean when it is attached to the verb 止める?


1 Answer 1


ため means “in order to” (or “because”, in other contexts); in this case, it's “in order to stop watching Sailor Moon”.

    "For the purpose of ..." is also a possible rendering.
