    [JP]Help with sentence

    Hello. I need a little help with translating the following sentence:

    でもま、なんとなくでも覚えてくれてた分マシかな。

    I get what the character is saying but I have trouble putting it into words. Especially the part 分マシ is confusing me quite a bit. Any help would be appreciated!

    Sorry, I should have obviously put some context to that sentence.
    This is the conversation the characters are having:

    俺たちや、この風景に見覚えは?

    なんとなく見覚えはあるような……

    はぁ? でもま、なんとなくでも覚えてくれてた分マシかな。

    The last sentence is something that I understand in context but I have trouble putting into words in English.

    Perhaps it helps if we break down the last sentence like this:
    はぁ? 
    でもま、
    なんとなくでも覚えてくれてた分
    マシかな

    It means something like: "Huh? Oh well, at least you did remember, vaguely as it seems".
    "For we are here to bless this world with our love, wisdom and noble character."

    That's very similar to what I was thinking! Thank you.
