persona 4 Japanese and American differencePart 5

Nanako's favorite sushi is halibut in english version.
Although this may not be right translation, but I want to give a supplementary explanation. In japanese version, this fish is called hirame. In english, this seems to be called as olive flounder or bastard halibut.

Differences.
Hirame
natives to the north-western Pacific Ocean.
farmed one is cheap but wild one is very expensive in japan.
maximum size is 3.3 feet.

Halibut
live in both the North Pacific and the North Atlantic oceans
(I don't know how this fish is used in japan)
maximum size is 9.1feet.

Oh, Adachi told nanako she has a wonderful taste. This means she has a grown-up taste and is very knowledgeable about sushi. Children are considered to be too young to understand goodness of luxury foods.
Sometimes halibut is used as fake hirame. I think this is very rude to both fishes and consumers.....But I believe Nanako will notice the difference it if she eats fake one!
