About me: The world is too big, corrupt, and full of surprises. I enjoy observing it and want to DeToxiCate it with my thoughts.

A lot of people have issue with this, me too. And I think they’re talking about this concept. I’ve only googled and read a few and they still generally describe it in different ways such as the following:
This is no official way, all I do is watch anime and movies and I’ve hardly spoken enough to other people because they don’t mention #2 and #3 often:
In english, I count it as “I’m going to” for te+kuru. You might be confused because you would say te+iku is going to. But when we say “I’m going to” in english, we’re about to do something so that becomes te+kuru. te+iku, however, has more distance and means I’m gonna do it later. For example:
買っていく - Rather than say, “I’ll going to buy it (now)”. You’re probably saying “I’ll go buy it (later)”
The last thing I heard from the anime I was watching similar to #3 is “あいさつをしてくれてきたら?” which means (Could you go and introduce/greet us?) This might be kind of confusing but when I said “you go and…”, it’s the てくる part.
Hope that helps, If I’m wrong lemme know lol.
