I don't understand...

well, that's what it was there in the manga ... like this:



bubble3:かたじけない しのぶ!!武器は助かった!!


and nothing else and then I was confused cause it was my first time seeing it :|

and then there was an individual meaning for かたじけない and しのぶ however while mixing their meaning...,... I can't figure it out... it was confusing then I thought maybe かたじけない is an adj I think something had been omitted and made the sentence a bit more friendly ~

also is かたじけない an adj ? while searching, Google said it's a phrase but the way written here I thought it's い-adj ...

so can you help me with it :)

    Isn't there any break between かたじけない and しのぶ? The sentences before this line would be appreciated, too. – broken laptop Mar 29 '20 at 2:49

    Okay, thank you. – broken laptop Mar 29 '20 at 3:03

かたじけない is an older word that roughly means "mentally indebting".

It is an i-adjective, but you can take it as a samural/ninja way to say "thank you" (= it indebts me). しのぶ seems to be a female name.

かたじけない しのぶ!! Thank you, Shinobu!!

In manga, normal punctuation is rarely used so that you have to pay attention where spaces and line breaks are.

  • しのぶwas wrote without any kanji or katakana so i thought it's a word T^T so かたじけない is a samurai way to say thank you !? – Pink Cat Mar 29 '20 at 3:17
  • and thanks for the answer ... i actually made some people angry with my question T^T – Pink Cat Mar 29 '20 at 3:18
  • @PinkCat Most time you can think of it "thank you" but always good to store the original meaning somewhere in the memory for such a usage as かたじけないお言葉. – broken laptop Mar 29 '20 at 3:22
  • does it mean indebt word? – Pink Cat Mar 29 '20 at 3:31
  • @PinkCat Actually i-adjective. I edited. – broken laptop Mar 29 '20 at 3:36
