Hi Emma, I'm new in utaite fandom :"3 can you tell me What's up with Luz? I mean those "yakedo" and "ya'll"? Thank you~~~~
Hi anon and welcome to the fandom! :D
So “yakedo” is hard to translate because it doesn’t really have one “meaning” haha. It doesn’t mean “y’all” but… actually let me start with where it came from first, to explain.
IIRC about two years ago Mafu posted a group picture from a concert like XYZ or something and mistakenly tagged Luz as another utaite. Luz’s response was “Luz yakedo…” which in English is kinda like “Actually, I’m Luz…” (but written in his Fukui dialect) People thought his response was so funny that everyone started saying it and it even trended on Twitter in Japan :P Now it’s like his catchphrase but I never know how to translate it because keeping “yakedo” as “Actually,” doesn’t always quite make sense depending on how it’s being used in context…
D-did that help at all? ;~; Let me know if you’re still confused! :P
