If you're lucky, you may be able to meet Koichi from Tofugu.
I was just lucky.
I might have run out of luck though, and I don't want to use it up on something like this.
This takes the luck meaning from the kanji. Think of it this way: If you're "carrying" you're going to create your own luck. Now nobody will mess with you, kanji gangstah. You carry guns and have a ton of luck because of it.
The reading is the same as the one you learned with the kanji! How... shall I say... luck-filled?
