We’re gonna have to go right to…

Ludicrous speed!


Literally: fast – fast – fruit – sever / decide

Alternately: Quick and decisive action. Bold moves made without hesitation.

Notes: For synonymous phrases the order of the elements may be reversed as 果断迅速, or 断 may be replaced with 敢 (kan, “daring”).


The joke is that this little nameko mushroom [source] enacts a 迅速果断 to put up an anti-rain charm instead of just bringing the laundry inside.

About Confanity

I love the written word more than anything else I've had the chance to work with. I'm back in the States from Japan for grad school, but still studying Japanese with the hope of becoming a translator -- or writer, or even teacher -- as long as it's something language-related.
