Can anyone please let me know what this is supposed to mean? I heard that it’s a sound effect or sfx like Japanese symbol, but I’m not sure. Thank you! enter image description here

  • Isn't there another katakana on the left? I can vaguely see red pixels at the top-left corner of the picture you pasted... – naruto May 8 at 23:57
  • Sorry about that. I fixed it so hopefully you could answer my question with the better looking picture. I’m mainly concerned about what the symbols mean on the right. – Sean May 9 at 0:15

It's "ブワアッッッ"

I heard that it’s a sound effect or sfx like Japanese symbol, but I’m not sure.

Yes, ブワッ is a sound effect for something spreading, exploding, overflowing, etc.
Additional ア and ッ just strengthen it.
In this case, it represents his blood spouting out.

ブワッ is a very common sound effect and used in various way.
Translation list below would help you.

  • Um, I asked OP to add the whole text (because I wanted to be 100% certain that it was ), but OP wants to know specifically about this part... – naruto May 9 at 9:59

Just to elaborate a little more on what's already been said, the small tsu (ツ or つ) extend the sound of the preceding syllable or add emphasis. So in this case it's basically turning the buwaa (ブワア) into something more like buwaaaaaaaaa! (ブワアッッッ).
