I watched the animated version of Erased on Netflix and now there is a live action version. I noticed in both a phrase being used but I can’t work out what it is.


If you go to 20:30 in episode 2.

Satoru is talking to his teacher. Before he leaves he says “ありがとう先生...” and then something that sounds like “shitake” or something.

They also say it among friends as a sort of goodbye or see you later.

But I can’t find what they’re actually saying.

Adding some subtitles...

I’m still not sure what he’s saying looking at the subtitles. But could someone please help me (I’m still learning and not very good with kanji). And that katakana has me even more confused. 😂

  • I live in Japan, so I'm used to having Japanese subtitles available on the Japanese Netflix, but are there none available for you?

  • @Leebo of course! Why didn’t I think of that! I was watching with English subtitles to learn but yeah, Japanese subtitles are there. Watching again now. :-)

    Are you asking about フフッ? That's the teacher's laugh... The other thing I thought you were asking about is したっけ, which is I see in the subtitles fairly clearly, and if you check Jisho it's Hokkaido dialect for "goodbye".
