Have you ever wondered what a cat's meow sounds like in Japanese? How about the grumble of an empty stomach, the rumble of an automobile's engine, or the crash of an ocean wave?
Japanese manga artists rely heavily upon onomatopoeia - sound-effect words - to tell their stories. This special edition in the Kana de Manga series features more than 100 Japanese onomatopoeia and their English equivalents in categories such as "humans," "animals," "machines," and "nature."
