Manga SFX

I had a random interest in SFX (sound effects) in manga. Here, for anyone else interested.

Combining Japanese onomatopoeia with English words gives manga readers an advantage over prose readers. Scholars call manga a multimodal text. This means manga requires readers to use a broad set of skills. Manga readers have to know how to read text combined with images. They have to know Japanese sound effect words and English transliterations like maiko and shonen. Of course, good manga reads right to left, which requires the brain to work differently. This means manga readers develop stronger multidimensional thinking abilities than traditional readers.

We also frequently forget which way to start reading American or European graphic novels, but eh, that takes a second to correct each time.

What's your favorite sound effect?

Mine is doki-doki (ドキドキ).
