Hi everyone, glad to have found this board.

Does anyone know what the original Japanese is for Rei's "so, be good to yourself" line from Episode 26? I've tried to search for it in the Japanese script but can't find it. I even tried to reverse Google Translate it but couldn't come up with anything close.

Would be grateful if anyone can let me know in romaji and Japanese characters, if possible.

Thanks in advance ^_^

It's a pretty good translation. You could give alternatives like "So, take care of yourself", but I rather like "be good to yourself" as a reading for 大事にする.
