    No sé si lo comprendí bien, comparando con el español "Obrigado" sería más bien como el "De Nada", siendo una respuesta a un "gracias", algo así como "no me lo agradezcas, es mi obligación", sería así?

    No, 'obrigado' es 'gracias', y la palabra tiene relación con 'obligado', en el sentido de que 'me veo obligado a agradecerte el favor que me hiciste'.

    Saludos,
    vmota.

    Right vmota! The phrase "much obliged" is a shortened way of saying " I am obliged to you (for the favor you did me) ". It's like saying " I owe you one!" ...all of which are ways of saying Thanks!

    ah, ahora comprendo más, "estoy muy obligado" como "estoy en deuda contigo" tiene mucho sentido.
