In manga, sometimes lines are drawn emanating from a character when that character is emanating positive energy. When they're happy, bright, cheerful and so on.
Manga: One Piece (Chapter 9, 〝魔性の女〟)
- Context: Nami ナミ cheers up.
- hontou 本当 with the long vowel shortened.
They're drawn sort of like focus lines, but their function is closer to laughter lines.
