1 The kanji given for “hagu” (the English word “hug” in katakana) read “hōyō” (“embrace”).
1 In Japanese, this instance (and all others) of “Kai” are pun on kai, a contraction of the emphatic-interrogative compound-particle ka yo. I have elected to keep it separate in English for the sake of preserving some sense of the original flow.
