Hello everyone! Kyuusei here to teach you Japanese and show what I find interesting about Japan. With that being said, let’s continue.

This grammar point is used to say that something has been completely done. This grammar is usually combined with verbs like end (終(お)わてしましょ) or finish (終(お)えってしましょ).

Ex:  きょうのブロッグをすませてしまったら、マンガを読んでアニメを見ます。

(When I have completely finished today’s blog, I will read manga and watch anime.)

Ex:  野菜を食べてしまうまでに、ケーキを食べてはいけません。

(You may not eat the cake until you have finished eating your vegetables.)


This grammar point is used to show that you regret something. Or it can be used to say that something has happened or will happen, and it will end horribly if it does. It can also mean that you did something by accident.

Ex: リポートをデリートしてしまった。

(I deleted the report (by accident).)

まったく、ぬいぐるみが勝手に動きました。。。うわー怖い。。。ポルターガイスト❢(なんてね。ダサいなあ。=_=)。ったくこのポケモン。。。動かないでよ。よし、取って、ポケモンに気づかれてしまった❢ ボルトスタート❢ゲンガーだ。口が大きいなあ。おもしろかった。なんてな。この試練は怖くない。あれ?そのピカチュまた見たよ。このスーパーでピカチュは何をしているの?電気タイプポケモンじゃないか。たぶんまた跡をつける。




Geez, now dolls are moving all by themselves. Oh, so scary (heh this is lame =_=). Stop moving around Gengar. It was bit hard, but I took a picture of Gengar. Well that was entertaining. Just kidding. This trial isn’t scary at all. Huh? That Pikachu again. What is it doing in a place like this? It’s an electric type Pokémon. I guess I should follow it.

It’s went to the back of the building. What is with all this Pikachu stuff. What the heck is that?! It looks like Pikachu. Although it did scare me a bit at first, it’s kinda cute. It called a Haunter for help. Better take out Mimikyu first. I don’t want it calling for more allies. It can get annoying. It was sort of tough but, Mimikyu was taken down.

Crap! Haunter used hypnosis. Now Biyako is asleep. I have to switch. Kurohige, I leave the rest to you! Awesome Sucker Punch! All right good job guys. Hmm? Mimikyu disappeared somewhere… Well I got the picture, so I guess it’s fine. I completed the trial. Plus no one died. These trials are starting to get too easy.

In conclusion, I hope that this series is helpful with your journey to learning Japanese and/or taking an interest in the country’s culture. Until then… また来週!
