Something like “Geh” is probably what we’d say in English, but it’s more like “eh” with extra force.

Wikipedia explains it as:

It has a glottal stop too, but that’s from the っ rather than the dakuten.

I wouldn’t necessarily call this indicative of anything, as we don’t know what the anime script looked like.

Why do I feel like this is a sound you would only hear either when dividing by zero or witnessing the merging of two supermassive black holes?
