Call me late to the party, but I just made the connection between Japanese Manga 'Kanji' or 'Katakana' and Sound effects. Reading through Steamboy by Katsuhiro Otomo recently, I can across these introduction pages which outline the different symbols and their English translations on a page by page basis. Fascinated by the depth of the characters used, their presentation, and the descriptions I decided to put up a couple example pages to use with the intro.
Take a peek:
The Japanese analogy to the 'boof' - 'bap' - 'pow', and no less awesome!
Now, who's up for some Kanji Invader?
