    A bit of help needed...

    What part would "カーブミラー" be, in reference to a car? (For context, the narrator is talking about an accident, and a cake flying under...something.) My instinct is just to write "cab mirror", but I don't know cars all that well, so I have no idea if that's correct or not.

    I think it's actually "curve mirror". Japanese term for any convex mirror, I guess. The convex mirrors in a car are the side ones, usually passenger side only.

    Yeah, I agree. Mostly trucks have these to be able to see in their blind spot, but still, yeah, I agree with cmertb.

    Might this be the convex mirrors that they mount on posts on the sides of roads to help see around sharp curves? I dunno, that's a wild guess. Else I'd agree it's some wide-angle convex mirror on the car.

    Japanese Wikipedia would seem to confirm it. See the 2nd picture.

    自分の頭の中で、漫画を読めれば読める程日本人らしく成ると思うのは大間違い。
