Evil Stare

にらみ nirami a glare

Frank met Tom’s eyes in a duel that would be discussed for days over hinomaru bentos (Umeboshi on rice).


SUGGESTED USAGE:

一つの梅干しのせいで、フランクとトムはにらみあいになった。
hitotsu no umeboshi no sei de furanku to tomu wa niramiai ni natta.

And so it was one umeboshi that led Frank and Tom to lock eyes in challenge.

ABOUT SUGGESTED USAGE:

一つ hitotsu – one(object) to say [one person] is hitori

梅干し ume boshi – umeboshi (pickled plum) If you like sour things, umeboshi is for you. Great on gohan.
のせいで no sei de – because of this sei and okage are similar in that they both mean [because of] but sei usually implies negative results and okage positive.

フランク furanku – Frank
to – and
トム tomu – Tom

になった ni natta – became Their eyes became in a state of niramiai
