Hey mangafags what does this hand sign mean? I'm relatively new to manga and I've seen this several times in several manga series' and there's no clear meaning behind it that I've seen.

They always did it in Ranma

First off you're retarded the "rock and roll" hand sign doesn't include the thumb. Just index and pinky. Second I saw this all the time in Ranma and in several other manga that weren't "rock and roll" related so you're the baka dumbass.

Takahashi has it in everything
>>
>>158634451
That's where I first saw it and they used it almost every damn page but I've yet to get any clarification. It has to mean something.

>>158634032
It's the "I love you" handsign in ASL, but I doubt that's the intent behind its usage. Apparently it's some handsign to indicate surprise, but I can't find any sources for the claim.
>>
>>158634832
The problem that I think you face is that ASL is not all sign language. Apparently, there's tons of different sign languages across the world, and they are all completely mutually unintelligible. If there's a Japanese sign language, you might ought to check that out to see if you can find anything.

After reading Ranma I also assumed it was a "surprised" reaction but in Murcielago the MC just randomly does it.
Also I was under the impression there were only like 2 or 3 official ASL out there. I doubt it's sign language anyway.
>>
>>158634957
Duh, that's why I said I doubt that's the intent. I'm certain it doesn't mean anything and it's done because the mangaka likes how it looks. I mean, in Ranma they do it everytime they're surprised and in Sailor Moon Usagi did it all the time.

Kuroko is crazy so I guess she uses it ironically or something
>>
That hand sign is probably used as a "ward from bad luck or curses".It might mean "nah,I don't need this crap,go away"
