Panel 2: While I use the sound FX "WHOOOSH" constantly (if not incessantly), I sprinkle in the F-added variation "FWHOOOSH" on occasion as emphasis for especially significant examples of WHOOOSHery.

Note that I also constantly if not incessantly use the inchoate, three-letter yelp or shriek of "AAA" for characters expressing alarm. If I could think of a better rendering of such a cry, I'd use it, but nothing else in English conveys manga's exclamatory, inarticulate trope of "yelling the single hiragana character for A" as far as I'm concerned.

Today’s Patreon update: Open slot in the weekly schedule today! Not sure what I’ll be posting, but something will go up today. I’ve been posting almost every weekday (sometimes multiple times per day) on this Patreon for the last few years, so why stop now?
