Please consider the sentence highlighted in bold (other text is given for context):


I know that 親丸 means "parents circle" and 高校生だったんだぞ means "was a high school student", but how does がかえ transition or connect this sentence together? が かえ can be inferred as "went" but I don't understand how this is actually connecting.

  • A bit more context will help. Maybe a few more sentences before and after this?

  • the actual text was 俺、さっきまでゲームして寝てたはずで、親丸がかえの高校生だったんだぞ。 Jul 26 '17 at 3:25
  • I edited your question a bit to improve formatting, and also made the title more specific.
