    [JP] help with some translating

    I need help with translating the parts that I circled in red. Those were the only panels I need help with, I was able to understand the rest. (This is a oneshot manga called "Maigo no Obakeyashiki" by Chiyori.)
    My translation skills come to a halt when it comes to kanji without furigana.

    I am not too sure about the sentence structure of the last bubble I circled. Does it mean that "your mind is similar to that of a kindergartener like my younger brother" ? and if it does, any way to make it sound more smooth in English?

    Thanks for your time!

    Edit// still need help with #1 and #4

    Awesome, I've got all the help I needed. Thanks a lot Takadanama and Mikkih!

    Re: [JP] help with some translating

    Dunno why but those kanji with no furigana are Chinese.

    Pic 2: Car pours along. (busy traffic or something like that)
    Pic 3: What's with that look? (expression)
    Pic 4: Who is it for?

    and ofc suit urself with the context

    That's actually what I had thought too, just wanted some confirmation to know I wasn't going nuts. Lol.

    Thanks for your help!

    1)私はいつも何に期待している
    The letter after 何 is not in Japanese. I would simply replace it with か.

    2) Your interpretation is correct.

    I substituted it for か in my head when I was reading it, lol. I'm gonna say that it now means "I was always expecting something."

    Awesome, glad that I was on the right track!

    Use present tense instead of past.
    期待している: Present, 期待していた: Past

    Right, right. I knew it was present tense but I thought it might fit with the context more if I changed it to past tense. I was probably just butchering the meaning. Lol.
