Mika's Pile of Anime

Information: Anime Emoticons

I'm positive that not everyone in the world knows what ^^ is supposed to be. This section is designed to enlighten all of you who don't know, and to give some new ideas to those of you who do know.

First off, I should start by explaining the direction at which you should look at an anime emoticon. Most everyone knows to look at a normal emoticon from the side (left or right).


See? That was a big mouthed happy face starting at the left of the page. But what's different with anime emoticons is that they are straight up and down. No turning your head at a 90 degree angle to get what these puppies are supposed be, no sir!


That one was a happy eyed anime emoticon. Do you see it? The two ^ (shift + 6) are eyes and the _ (shift + -) is the mouth. Ok, now that we have the basics down, onto the listing of all the different anime emoticons! They are divided into several categories, generic emoticons, and specific anime characters.
