From 義妹生活 ch3, protagonist was describing 目玉焼き cooked for him by his stepsister,


I'm not sure about the あたりも part. Can I replace it with なども? Or あたりから見ても? What も might be doing here?

Also, the subject for 持っていない is 目玉焼き?


1 Answer 1


As noted in the answer naruto linked, あたり is a way of making thing indirect. And も works the same way here.

Possible variants:

  1. メシマズ属性を持っていないあたり, 二次元世界の...
  2. メシマズ属性を持っていないのも, 二次元世界の
  3. メシマズ属性を持っていない{ところ、点なども, 二次元世界の

あたりからみても would be fine (but sounds lengthy). なども requires a nominalizer as above. Comparison: 持っていないのが would be exactly not having メシマズ property makes the sister different from fiction.

There could be many properties a fictional sister could have other than メシマズ: ツンデレ, ドジっ子 etc. Both あたり and も imply the sister doesn't have メシマズ property, nor other common-for-fictional-sister properties like ツンデレ.

The subject of 持ってない is the sister.
