Kana De Manga Special Edition: Japanese Sound FX!

Front Cover
Manga University, 2007 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 110 pages

Have you ever wondered what a cat's meow sounds like in Japanese? How about the grumble of an empty stomach, the wail of a police car's siren or the crash of an ocean wave? 

Japanese manga artists rely heavily upon onomatopoeia -- sound-effect words -- and this special entry in the best-selling "Kana de Manga / Kanji de Manga" language-learning series from Japanime is jam-packed with illustrated examples of those sounds (and more!) in action.

Features more than 100 Japanese onomatopoeia and their English equivalents in categories such as "Humans," "Animals," "Machines" and "Nature." Japanese/English text.
