Someone did tell me this:


However, how is it actually translated?

Could it be:

It's alright if it's Ryu's
I don't mind if it's Ryu's

Thank you



「いいようにする」 is a fixed expression meaning "to do as one pleases".

So, the phrase in question means:

"Do as you please, Ryuu-chan!"

The speaker is talking to Ryuu-chan.

  • So, after all the speaker doesn't mind it, and he/she could be mean it as; Yes, please! ?? – Nagashiwa Jun 12 '18 at 14:29

    Doesn't mind what? That is not easy to answer without more context provided, but in general, the expression describes the speaker's permission or consent for the other person to do something. – l'électeur Jun 12 '18 at 14:37
  • Well, I asked if it's okay to use a photo of him and me as facebook profile photo. – Nagashiwa Jun 12 '18 at 15:03
  • I'm not sure that you should interpret it as a "Yes, please" because that's very emphatic but it is however probably closer to the English expression "Go right ahead" which is permissive. – psosuna Jun 12 '18 at 17:56
