Uni Flash

In manga, unifura ウニフラ, or "uni flash," uni furasshu ウニフラッシュ, is flash of light with a black outline that looks like a "sea urchin," uni 雲丹.

The uni flash is drawn like the beta flash, using focus lines, except that instead of a black background they're placed on just any background.

Typically, they're used as speech balloons, or rather, as thought balloons.
