I am not sure what ごと means in this context and I am also not too sure about what's exactly the topic in this later sentence.



I would have translated it as

A.You are saying, we should abandon him?

B.Well, yes. If you look at the things objectively, if you think about the futur risks, than... Of course, you might also say, a true friend will stay by your side because of the risks.

I am not to confident in the last part of my translation... So ごと would add nothing new? Is it just a roundabout way to say risky "things"?Which kinda get's lost in translation? Another meaning for ごと that I found was "including" but I couldn't find a site that explains how you would use this kind of ごと and I am not sure if thats what the sentence is conveying.


This ごと is a suffix that attaches to a noun and means "along with ~", "including ~", etc. It's normally written in hiragana, but it's 共 in kanji, not 事.

  • ごとブドウをたべる
    to eat grapes along with the skin
  • サイア人を惑星ベジータごと消滅させる
    to vanish Saiyans along with Planet Vegeta (from this question)
  • ~の面倒をその危険ごとみる
    to look after someone along with the risks he/she has

Of course, you might say you cannot call someone a true friend if he does not look after you along with your risk.
