In manga, when a character gets spaced out with the ボー~ onomatopoeia, you really get a feel for the atmosphere in that image. Japanese onomatopoeia is really way more layered than Western usage of the same, which sort of comes across as comical or outrageous. (ie WHAM BAM SMASH CRACK)

you can't really take a word seriously when it's just "ham" with a "w" in front of it

can't wait for english 3.0 to mainstream japanese onomatopoeia so we can ditch the shitty system we're currently using
