(Sekai no "se")

, in hiragana, or in katakana, is one of the Japanese kana, each of which represents one mora. Both represent the sound [se], and when written with dakuten represent the sound [ze]. In the Ainu language, the katakana セ is sometimes written with a handakuten (which can be entered into a computer as either one character (セ゚) or two combined ones (セ゜)) to represent the [t͡se] sound, and is interchangeable with チェ.
