If I want to say "The (your) bento looks delicious.", is it: 1) お弁当が上手いだろう。 or: 2) お弁当が上手いそう。 Leebo at 2021-05-03 23:25:29 UTC Actually neither. It would be うまそう (using no kanji is probably easiest to read). The "looks delicious" type of そう attaches to an い adjective in place of い, not after い. If you put the そう after the い, it's actually a different type of そう, meaning "I heard." So your second sentence means "I heard it's delicious." And you may be wondering where that leaves だろう. To be honest, I don't really hear うまいだろう or おいしいだろう very often. You can use ～そう basically any time you have made the judgment that something is probably delicious via some kind of inference.
