katanagatari 01: shinobinai

A ninja in conversation.

(right) A ninja in conversation.

「俺は剣士じゃないからなぁ。変に刀に拘ってお前に倒されんのも忍びねえ・・・おっと、駄洒落になっちまったか?!」

“I’m not a swordsman after all. If I was gonna let myself get beaten by you thanks to obsessing over a katana, I shinobi calling myself a ninja… Oh man, was that a sick pun there or what?!”

(shinobinai means “can’t stand it” and contains the word shinobi, another word for “ninja”.)
