This is a picture of me eating gatsu gatsu-ly (mainly because no-one else would let me post a picture of them with their mouth full, the things I do…) To eat “gatsu gatsu” means to eat with gusto. Sounds kind of like “what a guts” in English so it’s easy to remember. I eat gatsu gatsu-ly pretty often, especially when hangrrr strikes or when I’m eating my favourite things like taco rice, Thai yum and chocolate chunk cookies.
Audioscript: “Saya-chan onakasuiterundane, gatsu gatsu tabete ma!” (Saya, you must be hungry, you’re eating so gastsu gatsu-ly – it’s the kind of thing someone might say a bit disapprovingly if they say “ma” like that).
