Attakē (あったけぇ – Heartwarming)

  • Attakē


    Today, I played The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes.
    今日は、「ゼルダの伝説 トライフォース3銃士」をプレイしました。

    This game is designed for online cooperative play.

    Since it was released over eight years ago, it took me a long time to find other online players. However, the players I met were very kind and cooperative, even to a beginner like me.

    During this time, I thought attakē (あったけぇ) to the kind players.

    Attakē is a casual way of saying atatakai (温かい – meaning “warm”) and is also a slang phrase derived from a manga. It is used when you are touched and warmed by someone’s kindness.
