    Sweet! Has the rabbit got a cold?

    No, that’s the manga trope for sleeping: an air bubble coming out from the nose. Like our zzz.

      Aha, some tropes are explained here by a fan. She calls them snot bubbles though.

        That’s where I first learned about it! I commented under the follow-up to that post:

        But I don’t think it has anything to do with snot. As she writes, in animes they inflate and deflate. So I rather think of it as “sleep breath”, which is supposedly of another kind than when a person is awake (sort of makes sense). I think it’s really cute, probably cutest of all tropes.

            What do you mean, Erik?

            Somehow the comments do not show up on the comments page. As if they are not published yet?
            Btw, I updated adjoun.nl with pics of my bathroom, filed under “blog”

            Ah, I think it might have to do with a cache plugin I use to make the page load faster. Try it from another browser or by reloading or I don’t know to be honest. ^_^;
