Sit, boy!

Postby tanuki » Mon 03.27.2006 12:56 pm

Hello, all!

I have a quick question:

In Inuyasha, what does Kagome say to Inuyasha in order for him to "sit"? I don't understand what she says... Please give the answer with kanji.

Thanks a lot in advance! Bye!

As far as I know, it's 'Sit boy', right?

"Suwaru" means 'to sit' in Japanese. "Osuwari kudasai" would be a polite request, asking someone to have a seat. When shortened to simply "osuwari" it can be a command. I'm just assuming that it is a command Japanese use to make their dogs sit. (Can't say for sure, I've never trained a Japanese dog! ^_^ )

Polite yes.. but in Inu-Yasha I don't think shes being polite when she says it :D
