Manga: Hataraku Saibou はたらく細胞 (Chapter 1, 肺炎球菌)
- Context: the Red Blood Cell thanked the White Blood Cell for his hard work. The White Blood Cell responds:
- rei wa ii
"Expressing gratitude is good." (literally.)
- Which means:
- Thanking is unnecessary.
- rei wa iranai 礼は要らない
[I] don't need [your] thanks.
- shigoto wo shita dake da
[I] only did [my] job.
- He's saying he doesn't need to be thanked for just doing what he was supposed to do anyway.
Also known as "past form."
