Analysis

おめえもボスになったんだろ?

おめえ which is a broken version of おまえ means “you“ in a very rough and aggressive way.

も means “also”.

ボス means “a boss“.

なった is the past tense of なる meaning “to become” which follows a noun with the particle に.

んだろ in a question means “right?” used in male speech when asking for confirmation from the listener.

この瓦礫の山でよ

この means “this” as an adjective so it’s always followed by a noun. And the noun is 瓦礫の山: 瓦礫 means “rubble”, the の particle is used to explain what the following noun is made of and the following noun is 山 which literally means “a mountain” but it’s also used to mean “a pile“.

で is the particle to indicate the location where the action has taken place.

よ is the particle used in male speech to make the tone stronger which often sounds rough and aggressive and it can be used multiple times in the middle of a sentence. In this sentence, the word order is inverted for emphasis, so this よ is actually in the middle of the sentence as この瓦礫の山でよ、おめえもボスになったんだろ?

Kaneda’s Quote

You’ve become a boss too, right? … on this pile of rubble.

んだろ (right?)

  • Verb Plain + んだろ
I will give you a ride. You are in a hurry, right?

  • I-Adjective Plain + んだろ
It’s about time to sleep. You have to get up early tomorrow, right?

  • Noun/Na-Adjective Plain + な + んだろ
I will lend you money. It’s urgent, right?

よ (makes the tone stronger which often sounds rough and aggressive in male speech)

You, don’t fool around!
That’s why I told you, right? That it’s dangerous.
Actually, I have a criminal record.
