Frank met Tom's eyes in a duel that would be discussed for years to come.



hitotsu no umeboshi no sei de furanku to tomu wa niramiai ni natta.
And so it was one umeboshi that led Frank and Tom to lock eyes in challenge.

  • 一つ hitotsu - one (object)
  • 梅干し ume boshi - umeboshi (pickled plum) [If you like sour things, umeboshi is delicious. Great on gohan.]
  • のせいで no sei de - because of this [sei and okage are similar in that they both mean [because of] but sei usually implies negative results and okage positive.]
  • フランク furanku - Frank
  • と to - and
  • トム tomu - Tom
  • になった ni natta - became [Their eyes became in a state of niramiai]
