SFX: The Overlooked Art

Over at her Live Journal, Cutie offers a peek at the process for transforming Japanese sound effects into English ones for manga such as Oh My Goddess! I know I've often wondered how something like this

without ruining the artwork. And now I know the answer: lots and lots of painstaking Photoshop!

(And this probably reveals how immature I am deep down, but when I read the SFX of "BRAAAPPP" my first thought was, "That's some bad gas Urd's got!" (In my defense, my two-year old daughter has just started announcing whenever she or anyone else farts, so flatulence been on my mind a lot recently.))
