Published on 2014 April 23rd

Test your understanding of how text, onomatopoeia and visual elements fit together to create a manga about a robot dog. Play the role of a new employee in a manga design studio. Explore elements of manga comics such as story-lines, characters, colours, text and bubbles. Then choose the dialogue and 'sound words' to complete a story about a postman's encounter with a robot dog. For example, choose the sound word to match the sound of a dog barking. Add your own text to the last frame of the manga to complete the story. View and print out an assessment report. This assessment object is one in a series of four objects.

Students apply text-specific (manga) conventions.
Students relate onomatopoeia to non-verbal expressions and actions.
Students relate dialogue to visual elements in cartoon texts.
