    Confirmation regarding a very simple reading

    Hello!

    I have been trying to read a few mangas in japanese to try to enhance my reading speed.
    However I'm a bit confused over the reading of some hiragana drawn in a way a bit different from what I usually read.
    For the context: I am reading the scene in bleach when rukia shows her hand to Ichigo to make him understand to keep his mouth shut.

    So far I understand : *ゆいだら 殺す。 (the  ゆ seems a bit strange though)
    but I don't see what could be the first hiragana, it seems to be a ち with the lower part a bit flatten. but then I don't see what ちゆいだら would mean.
    (It also looks very much like a ナ with an additionnal stroke)

    Could you please help me with this ^^"?
    Thanks you very much for your help !

    i think that's a 士, a given name. there are several different readings, including
    あきら、おさむ、かつひと、つこう、といち、まもり、まもる

    Thats actually a さ in hiragana for 騒いだ(sawaida) which means to either make a fuss/act up/make a scene etc

    On her hand, it reads
    さわいだら (If you make a scene)
    殺す (I'll kill you)
    ~dreamer~ and kainreaver like this.

    Re: Confirmation regarding a very simple reading

    Thanks you very much both of you ^^.
    I didn't expected this character to be a さ but I guess one hint was the direction of the second stroke at its beginning.
    as for the わ... It is also hard to read it ^^
    But It shows how some kind of handwritting can be different from others, which is really interesting.
    Unfortunately it's really rare to find such kind of handwritting while learning japanese ^^" .
    Anyway, thanks again both of you for the help .
    As a comparison I've looked up how they act this scene in the anime and they directly put 騒げば :

    Re: Confirmation regarding a very simple reading

    My guess would have been さ or ち, but it is written really oddly, so is わ.

    Not that I would know what it actually means though, and from the context what redmonster said makes the most sense.
