It is very easy to fall in love with Japanese text messengers or Japanese emoticons as they are otherwise known. Rather than the usual horizontal western equals 🙂 :-(; o) and all others, Japanese textbooks do not have to turn their heads to interpret them. This article will introduce some of my favorites that I regularly use to communicate.
(^_^) Classic smiley. Express your happiness or pleasure with this, the base of Japanese smiley. This is one that I use in over half of my email, and I really have it tied to the macro shortcut key to insert an instant smiley into my text. This smiley light also works without a mouth (^^) – many others of these smiley lips also have a mouthless variant that might seem strange to our western senses, but remember that the image of Japanese punishment Hello Kitty is also a mouthless design that is explained so that the owner Can show more of her own feelings on her. I wonder if this reason can be extended to speechless smiley, as increased ambiguity fits into general Japanese communication technology indirectly.
(^^;) and (# ^. ^ #) When I Want To Point To Accident or Trouble This pair of smileys are invaluable. First of (^^;) indicates only mild inconvenience, as the hemisphere indicates that sweating is formed and slipping down the forehead of the human. Other (# ^. ^ #) Has direct trouble or meekness. Here is the agreement in Japanese text brochures that the pound tag (or the meat tag or octothorpe) shows cheeks that blushing red maybe after making some basic faux pas.
Orz, OTL If you squint a little, you can see a stick man on his hands and knees, head touching the floor. This represents someone collapsing in failure or despair, a Japanese smiley I have never had occasion to use! (^^;) This is usually used to laugh by mistake, perhaps with the feeling of knocking one's head on the floor. It seems that in China, the same text of smiley is used to mark respect, bend at someone's feet and to the west as a synonym for ROFL or LOL (Rolling on the Floor Laughing or Laughing Out Loud).
V ^) Let's get a little more joy again, with this laughing Japanese text smiley. Also, her cousin meets the more gleeful v (^ v ^) v with hands that make the V-symbol. Ahh, the V-symbol; Point to a camera on any woman under the age of 35 and her hands will unconsciously generate these V-signs! So, wherever you may want to use ROFL or LOL, try this Japanese smiley shell instead.
= (^. ^) = This may be just a bit too cute with emoticons, but I have a soft spot for this good kittens face. It can be used (or misused, depending on your views!) To express naive joy or focus on fame.
(ToT) Now at the other end of the spectrum, crying. Here you can see the capital letters T represents tears that lie down from the eyes and a small letter o sore mouth.
