;;Wow, I can see why this was ignored. 骨抜き can either be used in context of like, mutilating someone or to water down, take the bite out of something, emasculate(as in literally take the backbone out of someone), etc. Either one is kind of odd in context here, but the usage of やんよ here would usually imply the more violent of the two(but the other would make more sense in context I guess, though it's still not something a guy would say before a date with a lady. A girl might say it before a date with a man though) I just gave it my own little spin.

;;more accurate to english and her emotions would be to "entertain" them, but seeing as Kanon is an entertainer, that would cause massive misunderstandings. People would think the line meant she didn't want to dance for them as opposed to chat with them. - pondr 2nd shift
;;How about using deal then? Also, noting that technically the original says think and not say. As in, Kanon didn't necessarily say that, Ikuko is saying that's what she thinks. That opens the possibility that Ikuko is just assuming Kanon's frame of mind(which might contribute to why Kanon was so pissed after she said that) And as the reader, we can probably assume that the biggest reason for Kanon's resistance to this job is because of her promise she made with Kyousuke.
