Asian Emoticons (ASCII)

Asian emoticons are made using the standard ASCII characters available on western keyboards. Asian emoticons are also known as “anime style” emoticons.

Emoticons such as <(^.^)>, <(<.<)>, <(o_o<), (//_;) (;-;+, which include the parentheses, mouth or nose, and arms (especially those represented by the inequality signs < or >) also are often referred to as “Kirbies” in reference to their likeness to the Nintendo’s video game character, Kirby.

Asian style emoticons can be strung together in series to show movement. For example: <(^_^<) <(^_^)^ ^(^_^)^ ^(^_^)> (>^_^)>

Here are the top text base emoticons made using symbols.

    hey hey, i was just wondering, what would this sort of thing be called ✂ ? i’ve seen many but i have no idea what they’re called!!!??

  2. Jay Hubbard says:

    A lot of the characters in these are showing up as squares. Is that what they are, or are squares some sort of default for characters I haven’t yet downloaded to my PC?

    And how do I download them?

    • Emotasia says:

      If you see squares you might want to download a language pack. Search for Microsoft language pack. And download the Japanese or Chinese characters pack.

You would rather put your words to type than to voice, any day. Even further, you would rather put your emotions into music, art, and creative expression than into words.
