In the beginning of internet and instant messaging – lack of face-to-face talk resulted in mistakenly taking parodies and humorous jokes the wrong way.
Such techniques are quite common in anime and manga.Many Japanese are good at drawing because Japanese is the language of drawings.Anime and manga are vivid examples of how closely the authors manage to convey a variety of emotions just by a set of a few simple lines.The secret of angry or evil emoticons is in their eyes. Just don't change the characters' order, otherwise your angry emoticon will become friendly and kind (compare: ` ´ - evil eyes, ´ ` - kind eyes). Finally, you can add such effects as thinking (・・・), raising hands (┐ ┌ or ╮ ╭) and propping the head with an arm ( ゞ).In addition, you can add "wrinkles" ＃ and their stronger forms: メ or ╬; and 凸 (middle finger) and ψ (claws) as an arm. For scared or frightened Japanese emoticons use forward and backward slashes and similar characters showing that they hide their faces in fear. For shocked and surprised emoticons use mouth wide open (ｏ, 〇, ロ), surprised eyes (O O, ⊙ ⊙) and raised hands.You can also try to show screaming, waving their arms and so on. You can also add character Σ (sharp jerk) or some cofusion (character ;).You can make indifferent / whatever emoticons by adding special characters for arms (┐ ┌ or ╮ ╭, and various combinations with forward and backward slashes and related characters). Furthermore, you can try to use big eyes in combination with small mouth (for contrast).Kaomoji (顔文字) is a popular Japanese emoticon style made up of Japanese characters and grammar punctuations, and are used to express emotion in texting and cyber communication.The word kaomoji is also synonymous to be referred to as Japanese emoticons.This concept is formed by the combination of two words in Kanji, “kao” (顔 – “face”) and “moji” (文字 – “character”). Therefore, in Japan emoticons are popular as nowhere in the world.Japanese believe that eyes are the mirror of a human soul.
