About それでも

それでも is a combination of the pronoun それ, and the adverbial particle でも. It is often translated simply as 'even so', or 'nevertheless'. Literally, it is a bit closer to 'even with that'.
それでも is usually used between an (A) and a (B) phrase, to show that there is more information (usually surprising) to be considered.
  • 今日(きょう)(あめ)()それでも()()の?

  • (わたし)(なぐ)られたり()られたりするのが(きら)ですそれでも空手(からて)()ので()ないです
