    some very natto

    Several seconds after clicking on this, you'll hear something like "some very natto". Is that what the woman in yellow said? Natto is a noun. What does "some very natto" mean?

    Re: some very natto

    I hear her stumble over a word. I think she's saying either I got some of their nattō or just I got some, uh, nattō.

    Re: some very natto

    It does sound like some very natto to me- I think it could simply be the kind of slip we often make when speaking. I'd guess that she means some hardcore/proper/real natto.

    Re: some very natto

    I heard "very" too. However, she does pause a little before saying "natto" so I wonder if she was about to say something like "very good natto" but changed her mind about "very good" after she'd started it. She did the same sort of thing just a little earlier when she said that she obtained something from "my people" but almost before the last syllable of "people" was out of her mouth, decided to say that she'd bought it from "the market".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    She may have been about to say very stinky nattō but thought better of it.
