Tokyo Damage Report

x-rated manga sound effects!!!!!!!!!!

So, about x-rated japanese comics. This is really a thing over here.

I am not a huge fan of anime, so I never bothered to check out hentai manga. But recently, on my way home from the bar I found like 20 pounds of the bastards that some kid just threw away on the side of the street. Being drunk I decided to perch all 20 pounds on my bicyle’s tiny basket ? never mind that I could not ride straight to begin with ? and somehow I made it home in one piece.

The shit that I noticed the most was not the obsession with fluids or the many underaged children, what I notice is that the characters are just totally surrounded by huge clouds of sound effects. Not only that, but they have sound effects for things that are quiet in real life. Vaginas in particular are incredibly noisy. They can go kuchu or puchu or bicho or jun jun. Basically they just never shut up.

At first the sound effects seemed just intimidating ? there were a limitless number of them, in stark contrast to the totally repetitive and boring sex acts. but gradually it became clear that most words were just variations on some basic sounds. Like there are a million words for sex but they all somehow agreed to end in “-ru” or “-pu”. likewise, most sounds for sucking incorporate the sound “chu” (kiss!) somewhere in them. Fondling for some reason generally results in a “-ni” or a “-mi.” so there are patterns after all.

Thus encouraged, I asked my anime pal to help me translate them. She explained that it is difficult even for japanese ?because why?

  • they can be written in hirigana, or furigana.
  • they are usually used in pairs (“dokidoki”), but sometimes just once with an exclamation point, to illustrate something happening suddenly and aggressively!!!
  • often artists will just make up a new word which is a variation on an existing one.
  • a lot of terms are just “regular words” used in a dirty context ? things like sway, vibrate, tremble, or drip. And to a foreigner it is not clear which are the REALLY dirty bits.
  • these words are pretty famous. . . most people can recognize the meaning if you say it out loud. However, it would never occur to a Japanese (even a pervert) to actually say it! They are purely written words. but fuck it, try saying it anyway.

I have been packing steadily for 12 hours today, to move my house. If i do not finish by tomorrow the landlord will have my head on a stake. but just to unwind from my labors, i have decided to dedicate 3 hours to assembling this partial dictionary. It would have been a complete dictionary but frankly I got bored. I mean, it’s only porn.

    "often artists will just make up a new word which is a variation on an existing one."

    This is what I hate most about translating SFX. (I scanlate doujins, a lot of R-18 ones at that) It's the kind of sound you can imagine but don't know how to translate. And they generally translate to the same thing, only with 'pretty' fonts… Makes me wanna make up english sfx too!

    Thank you for your dedicated effort towards providing translations for hentai manga noises. Now I can die in peace, knowing what “zubozubo” is supposed to mean.
