This took forever; you guys better be happy!

Have you guys ever wondered what those giant symbols in manga when something noteworthy or intense happens? That is usually katakana/hiragana that can sometimes create onomatopoeia (sound words) in Japanese. Thus, instead of this, the sounds can look like THIS. 

Since I create manga, it is always nice to have a common katakana chart to use for a more generic manga feel. However, I cannot locate an accursed common katakana chart online, so I gathered translated katakana over my many years of reading manga, and I finally created a chart. 

Seriously, this might be the most useful thing I have done for the world in a long time. Time to continue taking up oxygen on the planet accordingly. If anyone who is familar with katakana notices some discrepicies/repetitiveness, please tell me.

luckylace222You little asshole! Just kidding; I need to back up my smack!

I have heard katakana to be "it is used esp. for foreign words" and also "onomatopoeia are usually written in katakana" and "You can see a lot of onomatopoeia in Japanese manga (まんが) or comics. The words are sometimes written with the katakana (かたかな) for emphasis." Thus, from all of this, it sounds like those foreign words are sometimes like sounds/onomatopoeia? (」゜ロ゜)」 Dang it, the Japanese language being learned by dumb Americans!

I have professionally changed the title to "Manga Katakana and Hiragana!" Teach me more, sensei! More! Do girls really say "Kyyaaa" out loud in Japan?

Everyone can buy me a giant biscuit later for this heap of sweat and tears later.
