Zero no Tsukaima (ゼロの使い魔) p1

I’ll try page 1 of Zero no Tsukaima today.  Here is a link to the page.

I’ll post a line of X’s and O’s for understood sentences vs. not understood.  X means understood.

XOOXXOXXOOOXOOOOOO (18 sentences for page 1)

Now let’s go over the ones I didn’t understand.


I still don’t understand this sentence.

I didn’t know 抜ける and I still don’t.  I found 通り抜ける at Tatoeba which seems to mean to go through.  I didn’t find the meaning for 抜ける alone.

    “I didn’t know 抜ける and I still don’t.”

    It’s a real verb, you can find it in EDICT. There’s also a 抜く whose potential form is 抜ける. Anyway, the J-J dictionary Daijisen has 抜けるような as a specific sense (sense 9):
    so this particular sentence is a bit of a special case usage. The definition there basically says 抜けるような means “continuing unbroken forever, being transparent”.

    If you do a google image search for “抜けるような青空” you should get the right idea 🙂
