I need help to understand some grammar in this sentence


So I translated it for "no matter how many times I will try, the result will be the same. that's the truth of this world"

But there are two things that I don't understand here:

  1. ゃったって? where it came from? te iru form of やる (to do)? Because I know there is どうゃったって - what do you saying

  2. なんだ? is that to explain ton or something?

Thanks, Or

Why is your translation spot-on if you do not understand two parts of the original?

This 「って」 is the colloquial form of 「とて」, which means "even if".


「なんだ」 is the colloquial form of 「なのだ」, which is a sentence-ender expressing a firm kind of declaration/affirmation.

  • Thanks, I understood the context well. was I right that ゃった is やる?

    Why are you using a small ゃ instead of the regular や? It doesn't make sense in this context.
