Sample text

The focus is entirely on the object in motion and is represented by the speed lines of the background. The other type of action speed lines is more similar to Western motion lines and much less common in manga. These speed lines act opposite, blurring the object in motion against a static unmoving background. These blurring speed lines surround (and are often on top as well as behind) the object or person in motion. Often they are only over part of the object in motion with only a few short speed lines to show the direction of motion—a stark comparison to the heavier background speed lines.

Action The most common use of speed lines is in the case of action. Speed lines are used during the wind-up to an important attack connecting; during a fast race toward some specific goal, whether on foot, in a vehicle, or flying; to show a specific limb or weapon moving quickly through the air; and many more examples. Since a panel captures a specific moment in time and can’t show a full range of movement, the speed lines are a special effect that simulates that movement. Often, speed lines can follow the motion of the character or direct the reader’s eye toward the next panel, but this is not always the case.
