I am currently translating a Japanese text in English and I have trouble understanding this text.


I get and can make out some part of the sentence like 'he looks like an aristocrat' but after the chara ito part starts I don't get it.

  • Please show efforts in translating it. ex: Have you tried searching the word チャラい before? If so, did you understand it, or do you still have trouble?

He's more like aristocrat, good looking but far from being flirty.

Hard to explain but チャラい contains the meanings of flirtatiousness, gaudiness, vulgarness.
