「まるで…ようだ」の情報

まるで~ようだ is an expression in Japanese that combines the adverb まるで (sometimes written as (まる)で), and combines it with a description of (A) followed by the auxiliary verb よう (with or without either or です after it). (まる)で can be translated as 'entirely', or 'completely', while the whole expression may be understood as 'it seems entirely as though (A)'.
まるで will be used at the beginning of a sentence, before the description of what (A) seems to be like.
  • このゲームはものすごくリアルまるで映画(えいが)()ているようだ
    This game is very realistic. It is as if I am watching a movie.
  • あの(ひと)(わたし)母親(ははおや)(おなじ)(とし)けど運動(うんどう)神経(しんけい)いいまるで(わか)ようだ
    That person is the same age as my mother, but is very athletic. It is as though she is young.
Instead of ようだ, other expressions of conjecture may also be used, such as みたい.
  • あの(ひと)仕事(しごと)仕方(しかた)まるで(らく)みたい
    How that person works looks as if it is super easy.
  • (かれ)(おとうと)そっくりまるで兄弟(きょうだい)みたい
    He looks very similar to my younger brother. It is as if they are siblings.
Caution
The 'as if' or 'as though' nuance of まるで~ようだ comes primarily from either ようだ, or みたいだ, with まるで simply meaning 'entirely', or 'completely' in almost all situations.
  • (きゃく)さん(はな)ときはちゃんと()()(はな)せ!()()ていないとまるでお(きゃく)さん(はなし)()いていないみたいじゃないか
    Look at the customers eyes when you talk to them! If you don't make eye contact, it is as though you are not listening to what they are saying.

    What is that form? That is completely unacceptable. (Natural, but different meaning)

              Hey

              The の should be used when connecting よう and a noun. I have changed the structure section.

              Cheers!
