I saw a comic storytelling, or “Rakugo,” presented by a Canadian comic storyteller, Katsura SUNSHINE shown below.


I just wanted to share his video since I thought his video seemed to be helpful for both English learners and Japanese learners. ^^

As you can see the comment written in Japanese below the video on YouTube, “warui” doesn’t simply mean “bad” itself. It is kind of a short expression to express the feeling that “I’m very sorry that choosing/buying a souvenir for me must have caused you some troublesome,” and can be used only between close friends, family, or to your subordinates.

What’s the politest expression to express “thank you” in English? ^^
