The bold line in the below appears ambiguous to me. His friend asked if they can stop by the crepe cart on the way home and they both bought one. Based on what has been said here and a bit before we know that they are childhood friends and often buy crepes from here. However, I am unclear whether his statement is about himself, or his friend. I'm guessing their is some word choice/context that makes it obvious that I am missing.

Protagonist「またかよ? 本当にあそこのクレープ好きだな」

Girl「へっへー。そりゃね? あたしを育ててくれた味なんだから」






  • Ambiguous per this piece of context. Himself, her, or both. Jul 5, 2020 at 15:17
  • What's this from? If the speaker has been reminiscing about his past in previous passages, he may just as well be talking about his own experiences in this one as well. Jul 6, 2020 at 8:36

It's ambiguous, but I think this sentence is probably about anyone who is eating this crepe. Reasons:

  • This sentence lacks a specific proper noun or personal pronoun, which may indicate the subject of 食べる is unimportant.
  • The previous two sentences are also about the volume of the cream.
