    [JP] need help with a sentence and a word

    Hey me again!

    Okay so the sentence I'm having trouble with is:

    いつもどおり
    一発いっときゃ
    よかった

    I get the 「いつもどおり」part, but not sure about the rest.

    For context I think just showing the page would be faster than explaining. If you need more explanation let me know ^^

    The word I need help with is 「ポヤン」
    I think it's being used as SFX... it shows under a picture of a girl one a guy remembers who she is

    Let me know if any additional details would be helpful! Thanks~

    I don't read this manga, so I can't say for sure, but it seems to me that

    いつもどおり
    一発いっときゃ
    よかった

    goes along the lines of

    I should have said (or whatever action the character usually does) a thing or two as always!

    And ポヤン is indeed a SFX, used when a thought comes to mind.

    Hope this helps!

    Re: [JP] need help with a sentence and a word

    hmm. this is only the first chapter and this character has basically just been introduced, so I can't really say that she says or does anything in particular on a regular-ish basis. Would it make sense to just translate it as "I should have just said something like I usually do" or "I should have just done what I usually do" ?

    ahh, okay so ポヤン is like the light bulb going on? lol Would just translating it as "ah ha!" get the same feeling across?

    一発いっときゃ It's a tough call for me to figure out: 一発言う vs 一発行く
