haikyuu translation breakdown 2/??

can i just say my memory is so bad i don’t even remember translating this the first time round when i did the entire chapter when it came out lool

anyway here we go with another breakdown request 

飛雄が振り回されるワケだよ
tobio ga furimawasareru wake dayo

The most contentious word here I’m guessing is ‘furimawasareru’, which iirc from ep 10 of the anime the word choice was ‘wrapped around X’s little finger’.

furimawasareru is the causative form  of the verb ‘furimawasu’. The english online dictionaries don’t give a very well rounded definition so we’re going to hit up a japanese dictionary for the reference.

given the context, we want the (3) definition, which basically says:

 (3) “to make someone act the way you want them to act / to make someone do what you want” 

and if we go back to the bubble in the manga panel, the verb is in the causative form so it means Tobio is being “caused”, or “made” by someone else (contextually, Hinata) to act in the way Hinata wants. 

I suppose there really isn’t a singular word in the english language that can convey this nuance, because words like ‘manipulate’, ‘abuse’, or ‘coerce’ don’t really carry the right connotations and would be very awkward contextually to describe the dynamic between Hinata and Kageyama. That’s probably why phrases like ‘wrapped around X’s little finger’, or for example, ‘lead by the nose’, could be used, in attempt to have a better fitting translation. I reckon the ep 10 translation of that line is acceptable. 

I didn’t break down the entire sentence, so if you want to go for a grammar lesson and learn what the ‘wake’ is, this might help.
