I'm practicing understanding japanese by japanese subs of anime. For this moment it is 10 episode of season 2 "Seitokai yakuindomo", the last scene.
Here is Tsuda words: **あっ そうだ 買い物 頼まれてた んだ** Translation: Ah! By the way, I was asked to shop some things.
I try to firugre out by parts and could not understand what form of verb for 頼む [tanomu] was used here.
あっ そうだ [a: soda] Well, here is a thing. 買い物 [kaimono] shopping 頼まれてた [tanoma reteta] ???? what is the form of the verb んだ [nda] situation is the following.
Is it past passive? If so, I could not find info that past passive exists in japanese language. 頼まれる - is plain passive, but no past passive in the vocabulary.
Does anyone knows what is the form of this verb in Tsuda's words?
