:BTW, what series is the picture from? Maybe it could be captioned.
: Most definitely Urusei Yatsura
Actually, I think the word Glomp may have come from Rumiko Takahashi
's mangas. I remember seeing it used quite a few times as a sound effect in Ranma ½
and Urusei Yatsura
: It sounds like a onomatopoeia that would be in a comic. Next time I browse the manga I'll look for it.
Edit: I found the SFX "Glomp" a few times in the Viz translation of Urusei Yatsura
. I actually just read the whole thing last week.
: Completely random thought: Have any Professional Wrestlers
used this as a finisher? (*JARGON ALERT* It's sort of like a same-way-facing bearhug... *END JARGON*)
That Other 1 Dude
: That thing from 'Avatar'' wasn't really a glomp, she just grabbed his arm.
: Except it was a "flying tackle" that ended with her "wrapped securely around a part of his body," in this case his arm.
: Aww... the old picture has the "flying tackle" in it.
: But this one is much cuter.
