Bowing with m Hands
These emojis are all bowing their heads in apology because they feel so sorry. The English letter m represent the emoticon’s two hands on the ground. To really achieve a bowing effect, you need to make the eyes close to the ground so that it looks like you can see the top of the emoticon’s head. This perspective is really important. For the best and lowest eyes, choose between the characters _ or .
|ｍ（＿ ＿；；ｍ||m(_ _)m||m(._.)m|
|ｍ（．＿．）ｍ||m(￢0￢)m||ｍ（｡≧ _ ≦｡）ｍ|
|(*m＿ _)m||m(*-ω-)m||m(_ _;m)|
|(m;_ _)m||m(_ _;m)三(m;_ _)m||( m-ｪ-)m))|
Bowing with > and < handsThese kaomojis, on the other hand use, >’s and <‘s for their low hands. This kind of bow shows how apologetic these emotes are for something they have said or done. They are definitely rising above their ego and taking responsibility for their own wrong doings. Have pity! The fact they will lower themselves to the ground is enough of a reason to recognize they are sorry and to accept their apology.

Bowing with o Hands
There are so many options for bowing hands. These text faces are all examples of how using the English letter o can be used to show an emote bowing apologetically. Their hands are low at their side, their faces pretty much kissing the ground at your feet. Will you forgive them?

Bowing from the Side
You can see these facemarks from the side view as they bow in apology. These are perfect to use if you want to elaborate on the scene to be more expressive with your apology. You can do this by adding another emoji to show who’s feet these emotes are kissing or maybe by adding something like a rose in their hands to show they are not only bowing but offering a gift. A flower is the perfect example and would add some serious bonus points to your apology!

Apologizing with One Hand
These dongers are all using one hand to try to apologize to someone. It almost comes off as if they are sorry-not-sorry, like in the case of a compromise or agreeing to disagree. They stand firm in their place but they also recognize that what they have said or done has caused some problems for someone else. They want peace more than they want to be right. How humble!

These emotes all have fancy looking words to bring more meaning to their bowing gesture. The words are all “sorry” because they are apologizing. Use fancy letters instead of plain English text to add some style to your emotes. You can also copy and paste these words and put them beside any other emote in the apology section. Choose from several options: ᔆᵒʳʳᵞ, SΟЯЯΥ, and ʎɹɹos’ɥO.

Just a few more apologizing Japanese emoticons that didn’t fit into any of the above categories. They are so awesome that we couldn’t leave them out. (シ_ _)シ is particularly great because the arms are showing movement, which really brings this emote to life! Which one is your favorite?
