I know Kanojo can be used to refer to her or also mean girlfriend. I found this sentence and was curious


In this sentence, how is it being used and what is it saying exactly? If it's used as "her' does it mean intimacy or not?

  • I mean, first of all, what is the sentence saying? Context is from this description: comiaca.hatenablog.com/entry/2019/05/02/215749

    It's very difficult to answer this kind of question since it's not clear what parts of the sentence you already understand. Perhaps you could try posting what you think the sentence says as a translation and we could give you better answers based on that.

  • @Ben I understand it's saying something like she's trying to communicate feelings with her or something. is that right?

Judging from the context you provided, this 彼女 is simply "she", and it refers to ねじれ. She is clearly described as 甲矢's 親友 ("close friend"), so there is no romantic indication at least in this sentence.


(very literally) As for Koya, too, as Nejire's close friend, the scene where he had a mutual understanding with her was depicted.

→ [The manga] also depicted the scene where Nejire and his close friend Nejire have understood each other.

  • I was wondering, how is omoi used in this context? Does it mean love/romantic implication?

  • @Zain It depends on the context, but if there is no indication about love in the context, this 想い is simply "feeling", "compassion", "sympathy", etc.

  • why do you say there is no love indication? and how do you know her refers to kenranzaki and not nejire?

  • @Zain I do not know the story of 僕のヒーローアカデミア at all. If you already know Koya and Kenranzaki are in love with each other, this 想い can be "love". Otherwise, it's not "love". That’s what "it depends on the context" means.

  • Is 想い refering to feelings between koya and kenranzaki or koya and nejire?
