    I need help with an English expression

    I'm translating an English script to Brazilian Portuguese. And I want to know what the expression above means.
    "It was just some trash."
    I have already looked in the google and in the Longman Dictionary, but I don't know if it means "what a rude" or "you are a trash".
    Context: The white-hair guy (Usami-sensei) is fighting against the black-hair guy (Ijuuin-sensei) because Ijuuin was flirting with the person Usami loves.

    The meaning of trash here is literally trash/garbage/rubbish or whatever. If you're calling someone trash, you're saying they're repulsive, worthless and/or insignificant. In this context the emphasis is definitely on insignificant (when referring to your opponent).

    Hi
    Gratz on translating Junjou Romantica.

    "It was just trash"
    Trash as in dirt. Ijuuin sensei takes some dirt from Misaki's hair while saying that.

    My suggestion: "Era só sujeira"

    Discuss the yaoi side of Shingeki no Kyojin and Kuroko no Basket at the Boys Love section.

    Eu não esperava esse significado e nem que um brasileiro(a) respondesse. Esse significado faz sentido! Obrigada comterrâneo(a). Vou te dar créditos por isso.

    Precisa me citar não.
    Fiquei feliz quando reconheci que era Junjou Romantica e pude ajudar.
    Eu não costumo olhar essa seção, pois ainda estou no básico do japonês. Mas como era dúvida de inglês, às vezes só um estrangeiro entende a dúvida de outro estrangeiro.

    Apesar de você estar no básico do japonês, parece que sua tradução foi perfeita. Um dos kanjis que tem a pronúncia de "gomi" é esse , que significa justamente poeira.
    Vou te creditar sim
