Collection of Japanese kaomoji emoticons

Коллекция японских смайликов каомодзи

Kaomoji (顔 文字) is a Japanese emoticon-style image, built on the basis of kanji hieroglyphs, punctuation marks and other symbols, and used to express emotions when communicating in cyberspace. In fact, it is a synonym for Japanese emoticons. It is formed by a combination of words: kao (顔 - person) + moji (文字 - character, written sign).

The Japanese are a very emotional and creative nation. Therefore, in Japan, emoticons are more common than anywhere else in the world. According to the Japanese, the eyes are the mirror of the human soul. Therefore, if in the western emoticons the most attention is paid to the mouth, in Japanese it is the eyes. In addition, unlike Western emoticons, kaomoji does not need to be mentally rotated 90 degrees.

Many Japanese are good at drawing, because Japanese is the language of drawings. On the example of anime and manga, one can see how accurately the authors manage to convey the various emotions of the characters with a set of just a few simple lines.

In the early days of the Internet and instant messaging, the lack of face-to-face communication led to various kinds of misunderstandings. Kaomoji was a successful creative attempt by fans of manga and anime to remedy this situation.

Japanese emoticons are extremely diverse. On the Internet you can meet the figure of 10,000, but in fact there are many more. This diversity is due to at least two factors:

  • Unlike Cyrillic and Latin, which are most often written in single-byte encodings, a Japanese letter needs at least two-byte encodings that have a wider range of characters;
  • Kaomoji can signify not only individual emotions, but also complex actions, and their combinations - even whole stories.

Kaomoji are divided into categories depending on the emotional component, type of designated action or object. Also in these emoticons you can often find hieroglyphs that carry additional semantic coloring.

The site contains an interesting collection of Japanese kaomoji emoticons, collected from various (mostly Japanese) Internet sources. Since it is impossible to assemble all Japanese smiles, the project team selected the most interesting options and their combinations, as well as added their own. In addition, there is a corresponding application for Android.

In general, do not hesitate to use the Japanese emoticons you like. Combine elements of different kaomoji and create your own creative options!

Attention! All kaomoji are typed using Japanese fonts. If Japanese emoticons are displayed incorrectly in you, configure support for East Asian languages ​​in your operating system.

Japanese kaomoji emoticons: positive emotions

Joy

In Japanese emoticons depicting joy (laughter, smile, pleasure, delight), the eyes are usually high. The most commonly used symbols are ^,  ̄, ´, and `, but not always. The mouth also plays an important role. For example, young Japanese women often use the ω (omega) symbol as the mouth of their Japanese emoticons, considering that such kaomoji is the sweetest, or, as they say, kawai (kawaii). You can also use ∀, ▽, and other smile-like characters. And the Japanese like to add various special effects (stars, tears of joy, etc.) to kaomoji for greater expressiveness.

Love

Japanese emoticons in love often use the ♡ (heart) symbol or combinations with it, for example, ノ ~ ♡ (air kiss). Also for the image of a kiss, you can use a set of letters chu (in Japan, it is associated with the sound of a kiss). Another distinctive feature of Japanese emoticons depicting love is the abundance of symbols * and o, denoting blush and often used in conjunction with /, \, ノ, ノ and ヽ. That is, these emoticons seem to cover their faces with embarrassment. In combination with the so-called "hands", the symbol ε (bow lips) is also used, but here it means the desire to hug and kiss. Japanese women often joke, saying that such kaomoji are like perverts!

(ノ ´ з `) ノ (♡ μ_μ) (* ^^ *) ♡ ☆ ⌒ ヽ (* '、 ^ *) chu

Embarrassment

To show embarrassment, you can use a symbol; (something like a drop of sweat on the face) or symbols that imitate blush (*, o). In addition, you can try to depict how a Japanese smiley covers his face with his hands from embarrassment.

(⌒_⌒;) (o ^ ^ o) (* / ω\) (* /。 \)
(* / _ \) (* ノ ω ノ) (o -_- o) (* μ_μ)
(◡‿◡ *) (ᵔ.ᵔ) (* ノ ∀` *) (// ▽ //)

( ̄ ▽  ̄ *) ゞ (⁄ ⁄ • ⁄ω⁄ • ⁄ ⁄) (* / ▽ \ *) (⁄ ⁄> ⁄ ▽ ⁄ <⁄ ⁄)

Sympathy

To express sympathy or compassion we need at least two Japanese emoticons: one of them will be upset about something, and the other will reassure him. For the first type, you can use kaomoji from the category of "sadness". The key element of the second will be "soothing hand stroking" (ノ ”, ノ 'or ヾ) or“ shoulder support ”(see examples).

(ノ _ <。) ヾ (´ ▽ `) 。 ・ ゚ ・ (ノ D`) ヽ ( ̄ω ̄) ρ (- ω - 、) ヾ ( ̄ω ̄;)
ヽ ( ̄ω ̄ (。。) (* ´ I `) ノ ゚ (ノ D ` ゚) ゚。 ヽ (~ _ ~ (・ _ ・)

(´-ω-`(_ _) (っ ´ω`) ノ (╥ω╥) (o ・ _ ・) ノ ”(ノ _ <、)

Japanese kaomoji emoticons: negative emotions

Discontent

Discontent can easily be expressed by wrinkling the face of kaomoji. Hence the corresponding symbols. For the eyes of dissatisfied Japanese emoticons fit > <. Additional wrinkles may add a symbol #. Also a certain dissatisfaction can be expressed by eyes like ¬¬ and  ̄ ̄ with a well-chosen mouth. Similar techniques are quite common in anime and manga.

(# > <) (; ⌣̀_⌣́) ☆ o (> < ;) ○ ( ̄  ̄ |||)
(;  ̄ ̄) ( ̄ □  ̄ 」) (#  ̄0 ̄) (#  ̄ω ̄)
(¬_¬;) (> m <) (」° ロ °)」 (〃 > _ <; 〃)
(^^ #) (︶︹︺) ( ̄ ヘ  ̄) <( ̄ ﹌  ̄)>
( ̄︿ ̄) (> ﹏ <) (--_--) 凸 ( ̄ ヘ  ̄)
ヾ ( ̄O ̄) ツ (⇀‸↼ ‶) o (> <) o (」> <)」
(ᗒᗣᗕ)՞ (눈 _ 눈)

Anger

The secret to depicting anger with kaomoji is in the eyes. Use `and ´ or ` and ´. Just do not confuse the location of characters, otherwise your angry Japanese smiley will be kind and cheerful (compare: `´ - evil eyes, ´` - good eyes). In addition, for the image of anger, you can add "wrinkles" # and their stronger form メ or ╬, and as a hand - 凸 (middle finger) and ψ (similarity of claws). And you can also use the "evil grin" 皿 or 益.

(# `d´) (`皿 ´ #) (`ω ´) ヽ (`d´ *) ノ
(・ `Ω´ ・) (`ー ´) ヽ (`⌒´ メ) ノ 凸 (`△ ´ #)
(`ε´) ψ (`∇ ´) ψ ヾ (`ヘ ´) ノ ゙ ヽ (‵ ﹏´) ノ
(メ `ロ ´) (╬` 益 ´) ┌∩┐ (◣_◢) ┌∩┐ 凸 (`ロ ´) 凸
Σ (▼ □ ▼ メ) (° ㅂ ° ╬) ψ (▼ へ ▼ メ) ~ → (ノ ° 益 °) ノ
(҂` з´) (‡ ▼ 益 ▼) (҂` ロ ´) 凸 ((╬◣﹏◢))
٩ (╬ʘ 益 ʘ╬) ۶ (╬ Ò﹏Ó) \\٩ (๑` ^ ´๑) ۶ // (凸 ಠ 益 ಠ) 凸
↑ _ (ΦwΦ) Ψ ← ~ (Ψ ▼ ー ▼) ∈ ୧ ((# Φ 益 Φ #)) ୨ ٩ (ఠ 益 ఠ) ۶
(ノ ಥ 益 ಥ) ノ

Sorrow

Sadness, sadness and tears are portrayed quite simply. As an eye, use T T; ;,> <and other characters that mimic the tear-stained eyes of a Japanese smiley. You can also cover your eyes with your hands (for example, / \ and ノ ヽ).

(ノ _ <。) (* -_-) (´-ω-`) . ゚ ゚ ・ (/ ω\) ・ ゚ ゚ ・.
(μ_μ) (ノ d`) (-ω- 、) ゜ ゜ (´O`) ゜ ゜。
o (T ヘ To) (; ω;) (。╯3╰。) 。 ・ ゚ ゚ * (> d <) * ゚ ゚ ・。
(゚ , _ ゝ `) (个 _ 个) (╯︵╰,) ・ ゚ (゚> <゚) ゚ ・。
(╥ω╥) (╯_╰) (╥_╥) .。 ・ ゚ ゚ ・ (> _ <) ・ ゚ ゚ ・ 。.
(/ ˍ ・ 、) (ノ _ <、) (╥﹏╥) 。 ゚ (。 ノ ω ヽ。) ゚。
(つ ω` *) (。T ω T。) (ノ ω ・ 、) ・ ゚ ・ (。> ω <。) ・ ゚ ・
(T_t) (> _ <) (T ▽ T) 。 ゚ ・ (> ﹏ <) ・ ゚。
o (〒﹏〒) o (。 • ︿︿ • ̀。) (ಥ﹏ಥ)

Pain

To show the pain, use the characters> <along with special effects like ☆. For the image of "stunned" emoticons, you can use the eyes of type "x". But there are other ways too.

~ (> _ <~) ☆ ⌒ (> _ <) ☆ ⌒ (>。 <) (☆ _ @)
(× _ ×) (x_x) (× _ ×) ⌒ ☆ (x_x) ⌒ ☆
(× ﹏ ×) ☆ (# ×)) (+ _ +) [± _ ±]

Fear

For the image of frightened Japanese emoticons, use the forward and backward slash and other characters that give the impression that kaomoji is covering the face with the hands of fear. In this case, you can also depict a scream, waving arms and other similar actions.

(ノ ω ヽ) (/。\) (ノ _ ヽ) .. ・ ヾ (。 > <) シ
(″ ロ ゛) (;;; * _ *) (・ 人 ・) \ (〇_o) /
(/ ω\) (/ _\) 〜 (> <) 〜 Σ (° △ ° |||)
(((> <))) {{(> _ <)}} \ (º □ º l | l) / 〣 (ºΔº) 〣

Japanese kaomoji emoticons: neutral emotions

Indifference

You can show indifference with the help of Japanese emoticons by using imitation of appropriate hand movements (┐ ┌ or ╮ ╭, as well as all kinds of bundles with forward / reverse slashes and other hand-like characters). "Раз, ˇ ˇ and similar options are suitable as" indifferent eyes ".

ヽ (ー _ ー) ノ ヽ (´ ー `) ┌ ┐ ('~ `) ┌ ヽ ( ̄д ̄) ノ
┐ ( ̄ ヘ  ̄) ┌ ヽ ( ̄ ~  ̄) ノ ╮ ( ̄_ ̄) ╭ ヽ (ˇ ヘ ˇ) ノ
┐ ( ̄ ~  ̄) ┌ ┐ (︶ ▽ ︶) ┌ ╮ ( ̄ ~  ̄) ╭ ¯ \ _ (ツ) _ / ¯
┐ (´ d`) ┌ ╮ (︶︿︶) ╭ ┐ ( ̄∀ ̄) ┌ ┐ (˘ 、 ˘) ┌
╮ (︶ ▽ ︶) ╭ ╮ (˘ 、 ˘) ╭ ┐ (˘_˘) ┌ ╮ (˘_˘) ╭

Confusion

Use "empty eyes" ・ ・. To enhance the effect you can add to them; or 〃. Also in this bundle of emoticons fit eyes like  ̄. Finally, you can add effects like the process of thinking (・ ・ ・), spreading your arms (┐ ┌ or ╮ ╭), supporting your head with your hand (ゞ).

( ̄ω ̄;) σ ( ̄ 、  ̄〃) ( ̄ ~  ̄;) (-_-;) ・ ・ ・
┐ ('~ `;) ┌ (・ _ ・ ヾ (〃 ̄ω ̄〃 ゞ ┐ ( ̄ ヘ  ̄;) ┌
(・ _ ・;) ( ̄_ ̄) ・ ・ ・ ╮ ( ̄ω ̄;) ╭ ( ̄. ̄;)
(@ _ @) (・ ・;) ゞ Σ ( ̄。 ̄ ノ) (・ ・)?
(• ิ _ • ิ)? (◎ ◎) ゞ (ー ー;) ლ (ಠ_ಠ ლ)
ლ (¯ ロ ¯ ")

Doubt

Doubt is the easiest to show by turning kaomoji's eyes to the side. Use ¬ ¬, ¬ ¬ or arrows.

(¬_¬) (→ _ →) (¬ ¬) (¬‿¬)
(¬_¬) (← _ ←) (¬ ¬) (¬‿¬)
(↼_↼) (⇀_⇀)

Surprise

Surprise or shock can be shown with a wide open mouth (o, 〇, ロ), eyes (OO, ⊙ ⊙) and raised hands of a Japanese emoticon. You can also add to it the symbol Σ, denoting a sharp start, or a shade of confusion (the symbol;). In addition, with wide open eyes, the mouth can be reduced (for contrast).

w (° o °) w ヽ (° 〇 °) Σ (O_O) Σ (° ロ °)
(⊙_⊙) (o_O) (O_O;) (OO)
(° ロ °)! (o_O)! (□ _ □) Σ (□ _ □)
∑ (O_O;) (: ౦ ‸ ౦:)

Japanese kaomoji emoticons: various actions

Greeting

For the image of a greeting (or farewell) with the help of kaomoji in standard situations, the forward or backward slash is used. However, there are more interesting options, such as ノ and ノ. And if you want the Japanese smiley to “wave”, try using ヾ, ノ ゙ and their various combinations with a tilde.

(* ・ Ω ・) ノ ( ̄ ▽  ̄) ノ (° ▽ °) / (´ ∀ `) ノ
(^ - ^ *) / (@ ´ ー `) ノ ゙ (´ • ω • `) ノ (° ∀ °) ノ ゙
ヾ (* '▽' *) \ (⌒ ▽ ⌒) ヾ (☆ ▽ ☆) (´ ▽ `) ノ
(^ 0 ^) ノ ~ ヾ (・ ω ・) (・ ∀ ・) ノ ヾ (^ ω ^ *)
(* ° ー °) ノ (・ _ ・) ノ (o´ω`o) ノ ヾ (☆ '∀' ☆)
( ̄ω ̄) / (´ ω `) ノ ゙ (⌒ω⌒) ノ (o ^ ^ o) /
(≧ ▽ ≦) / (✧∀✧) / (o´ ▽ `o) ノ ( ̄ ▽  ̄) /

Hugs

To depict a hug, add the appropriate symbols of outstretched hands.

(づ  ̄ ³ ̄) づ (つ ≧ ▽ ≦) つ (つ ✧ω✧) つ (づ ◕‿◕) づ
(⊃。 • ‿‿ •。) ⊃ (つ. • ́ _ʖ • ̀.) つ (っ ಠ‿ಠ) っ (づ ◡﹏◡) づ
⊂ (´ • ω • `⊂) ⊂ (・ ω ・ * ⊂) ⊂ ( ̄ ▽  ̄) ⊃ ⊂ (´ ▽ `) ⊃

Wink

Winking Japanese emoticons look very cute and are very easy to paint. Just use different symbols for your kaomoji's left and right eyes.

(^ _ ~) (゚ o⌒) (^ _-) ≡ ☆ (^ ω ~)
(> ω ^) (~ 人 ^) (^ _-) (-_ ・)
(^ _ <) 〜 ☆ (^ 人 <) 〜 ☆ ☆ ⌒ (≧ ▽ °) ☆ ⌒ (ゝ 。∂)
(^ _ <) (^ _−) ☆ (・ Ω <) ☆

Apology

In Japan, expressing an apology, it is customary to perform the traditional bow. Therefore, the corresponding Japanese emoticons are depicted in this way. In this case, the eyes are usually lowered down (_ _ or..). If the bow is done from a sitting position, mm is most often used as a kaomoji hand; if from a standing position, instead of arms, it is better to portray shoulders <>.

m (_ _) m (シ _ _) シ m (..) m <(_ _)>
人 (_ _ *) (* _ _) 人 m (_ _; m) (m; _ _) m
(シ.) シ

Blood from the nose

To show blood from the nose, like in anime or manga, use the following symbols: i, ハ,;, 〃.

(*  ̄ii ̄) ( ̄ ハ  ̄ *) \ ( ̄ ハ  ̄) (^ ་ ། ^)
(^ 〃 ^) ( ̄ ¨ ヽ  ̄) ( ̄;  ̄) ( ̄ ;;  ̄)

Hide and seek

If you want to show that a Japanese smiley is hiding from someone or something, try to portray how it looks out from behind a wall | or another shelter.

| ・ Ω ・) ヘ (・ _ | | ω ・) ノ ヾ (・ |
| d ・) | _ ̄)) | ▽ //) ┬┴┬┴┤ (・ _├┬┴┬┴
┬┴┬┴┤ ・ ω ・) ノ ┬┴┬┴┤ (͡ ° ͜ʖ├┬┴┬┴ ┬┴┬┴┤ (・ _├┬┴┬┴ | _ ・)
| ・ D ・) ノ | ʘ‿ʘ) ╯

Letter

The φ symbol looks good as a writing pen, if you need to show how kaomoji writes something. You can also add a few underscores or points to show the result of the letter itself.

__φ (..) ( ̄ ー  ̄) φ__ __φ (。。) __φ (..;)
ヾ (`ー ´) シ φ__ __〆 ( ̄ ー  ̄) .... φ (∀ ・ *) ___ 〆 (・ ∀ ・)
(^ ▽ ^) ψ__ .... φ (︶ ▽ ︶) φ .... (..) φ__ __φ (◎◎ ヘ)

Run

Running emoticons are depicted by adding various special motion effects. For this, the most commonly used symbols are ε, =,, and C.

☆ ミ (o * ・ ω ・) ノ C = C = C = C = C = ┌ (; ・ ω) ─ = ≡Σ (((つ > <) つ
ε = ε = ε = ε = (;  ̄ ▽  ̄) ε = ε = ┌ (> _ <) C = C = C = C = ┌ (`ー ´) ┘
ε === (っ ≧ ω ≦) っ ヽ ( ̄d ̄;) ノ = 3 = 3 = 3 ミ ヽ (。 > <) ノ

Sleep

Everything is simple here. To imitate the “snuffing” or “snoring” of a Japanese emoticon, use zzZ. And you can also put it on the pillow [].

[(--)] .. zzZ (-_-) zzZ (∪。∪) 。。。 zzZ (-Ω-) zzZ
( ̄o ̄) zzZZzzZZ ((_ _)) .. zzzZZ ( ̄ρ ̄) .. zzZZ (-.-) ... zzz
(_ _ *) Z zz (x. x) ~~ zzZ

Japanese kaomoji emoticons: animals

Cat

The Japanese consider cats as insanely cute creatures. Hence the various fetishes of anime and manga: cat ears, tail, nyakanie (nyaa - "meow" in Japanese) and other fun. Therefore, in kaomoji, the cat is the most popular animal. To make your Japanese smiley look like a cat, use = = as a mustache and ^ ^ as ears.

(= ^ ・ Ω ・ ^ =) (= ^ ・ ェ ・ ^ =) (= ①ω① =) (= ω =) .. nyaa
(=; ェ; =) (= `ω´ =) (= ^ ‥ ^ =) (= ノ ω ヽ =)
(= ⌒‿‿⌒ =) (= ^ ◡ ^ =) (= ^ - ω - ^ =) ヾ (= `ω´ =)”
(^ • ω • ^) (/ = ω =) / ฅ (• ㅅ • ❀) ฅ ฅ (• ɪ •) ฅ
ଲ (ⓛ ω ⓛ) ଲ (^ = ◕ᴥ◕ = ^) (= ω =)

Bear

Japanese bear emoticons are easily identified by their characteristic muzzle (エ) or ʕ ʕ ears.

(´ (エ) ˋ) (*  ̄ (エ)  ̄ *) ヽ ( ̄ (エ)  ̄) ノ (/  ̄ (エ)  ̄) /
( ̄ (エ)  ̄) ヽ (ˋ (エ) ´) ノ ⊂ ( ̄ (エ)  ̄) ⊃ (/ (エ) \)
⊂ (´ (ェ) ˋ) ⊃ (/ - (エ) -\) (/ ° (エ) °) / ᵔᴥᵔ ʔ
ʕ • ᴥ • ʔ ʕ • ̀ ω • ́ ʕ • ̀ o • ́ ʔ

Dog

Here, the whole secret is in the ears ∪ ∪ and the absence of the familiar borders of the face of a Japanese emoticon (that is, instead of brackets the ears are borders).

^ ェ ^ ∪ ・ Ω ・ ∪ ∪ ̄- ̄∪ ・ ェ ・ ∪
U ^ 皿 ^ U ェ TU U ^ ェ ^ U V ● ᴥ ● V

Rabbit

Rabbits are already cute creatures, and emoticons make them even nicer. To image the rabbit, use x as a face and add ears / \.

/ (≧ x ≦) \ / (・ × ・) \ / (= ´x` =) / (^ X ^) \
/ (= ・ X ・ =) / (^ × ^) \ / (> × <) \ / (˃ ᆺ ˂) \

Pig

Pig's penny can be represented as (oo), (00) or (ω). Add it to the Japanese emoticon and you get a funny hryundel.

(´ (00) ˋ) ( ̄ (ω)  ̄) ヽ (ˋ (00) ´) ノ (´ (oo) ˋ)
\ ( ̄ (oo)  ̄) / 。 ゚ (゚ ´ (00) `゚) ゚。 ( ̄ (00)  ̄) (ˆ (oo) ˆ)

Bird

For bird-shaped emoticons, use the symbols символы or θ as the beak. This is the main idea.

( ̄Θ ̄) (`・ Θ ・ ´) (ˋ Θ ´) (◉Θ◉)
\ (ˋ Θ ´) / (・ Θ ・) (・ Θ ・) ヾ ( ̄ ◇  ̄) ノ 〃

A fish

Since fish and seafood are an integral part of the nutrition of the Japanese, emoticons are not spared this theme. Here the symbols << or 彡 are used for the tail and)) for the gills.

(°) #)) << <・)))> << ζ °))) 彡 > °)))) 彡
(°)) << > ^))) <~~ ≧ (° °)

Spider

To depict a spider, use the / \ ╱ \ ╮╭╲ symbols for the legs and try to add several pairs of eyes.

/ ╲ / \ ╭ (ఠఠ 益 ఠఠ) ╮ / \ ╱ \ / ╲ / \ ╭ (ರರ⌓ರರ) ╮ / \ ╱ \ / ╲ / \ ╭ ༼ ºº ل͟ ºº ༽ ╮ / \ ╱ \ / ╲ / \ ╭ (͡ ° ͡ ° ͜ʖ ͡ ° ͡ °) ╮ / \ ╱ \

Japanese kaomoji smiles: other variations

Friends

To show friendship, it is enough to portray a few Japanese emoticons holding hands. For this, the characters 人, メ, 八 and 爻 are best suited. Although there are other ways. Try to find them.

ヾ (・ ω ・) (・ ω ・) ノ ヽ (∀ °) 人 (° ∀) ノ ヽ (⌒o⌒) 人 (⌒-⌒) ノ
(* ^ ω ^) 八 (⌒ ▽ ⌒) 八 (-‿‿-) ヽ \ (^ ∀ ^) メ (^ ∀ ^) ノ ヾ ( ̄ ー  ̄ (≧ ω ≦ *)

\ (▽  ̄ \ ( ̄ ▽  ̄) /  ̄ ▽) /

The enemies

Here the concept of "enemy" is used in a joking manner. Just picture how a Japanese smiley kicks his opponent or something like that. For greater expressiveness, use the special effects ☆, ミ, 彡 and Σ. Eyes of unconscious emoticons are usually depicted as x x. Everything else is creative.

ヽ (・ ∀ ・) ノ _θ 彡 ☆ Σ (ノ `Д´) ノ (* ´∇`) ┌θ ☆ (ノ> _ <) ( ̄ω ̄) ノ ゙ ⌒ ☆ ミ (o _ _) o

Food

The Japanese love to drink. Therefore, the rich variety of Japanese kaomoji emoticons could not ignore this feature. For this purpose the symbols 旦, 口, 且 are used. You can also use square brackets [] as an easier way. And to show hot drinks (tea, coffee), just add ~~ (steam) to the corresponding characters. In addition, using kaomoji, you can depict food in a variety of ways (examples in the table below).

(っ ˘ڡ˘ ς) (o˘◡˘o) ┌iii┐ ('ω') 旦 ~~
(˘ ▽ ˘) っ ♨ ♨o (> _ <) o♨ (・ Ω ・) o - {{[〃]}}

(*  ̄ ▽  ̄) 旦 且 (´∀` *) - ●●● -c (・ ・) (・ ・) つ - ● ○ ◎ -

Music

Japanese emoticons can very clearly express the musical aspects of life (singing, dancing, listening to music, etc.). For this, it is enough to add the symbol ♪ or change the position of the hands to the standard kaomoji (if you want to show a dance).

ヾ (〇〇`) ノ ♪♪♪ ヘ ( ̄ω ̄ ヘ) (〜 ̄ ▽  ̄) 〜 〜 ( ̄ ▽  ̄〜)
ヽ (o´∀`) ノ ♪ ♬ (ノ ≧ ∀ ≦) ノ ♪ ヽ (^^ ヽ) ♪ (/ _ _) / ♪

(^^) p _____ | _o ____ q (^^) (/ O ^) / ° ⊥ \ (^ o\) ! (; ゚ o ゚) o /  ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ̄ ~> ゚)))) 彡
ヽ (^ o ^) ρ┳┻┳ ° σ (^ o ^) (/ _ ^) / ● \ (^ _ \) "((≡ | ≡)) _ / \ _ ((≡ | ≡))"
