I was browsing the Internet (for Japanese emoticon related things I swear! (~>ω>)~ ) and I stumbled upon a French blog called La Paillette Frondeuse and some pretty impressive kamoji nail art. Check out some of the nail art below. And you can check out the original post on their website here. It’s a whole site about nail art so if that’s your thing then definitely check it out although everything is in French.
I’ve just made another giant update to the website and added over 600 new kaomoji emoticons bring the total up to 3,173! I’ve also added two new categories of kaomoji to the site as well, table flipping emoticons and emoticons with words. I had a bunch of table flipping emoticons included on the other actions page but I’ve collected enough of them now that they needed their own page. The other category includes kaomoji with words in them. Normally I don’t really include words with the emoticons themselves but these ones are awesome enough that I felt they needed to be included on the site as well. Here are some of my favourite new emoticons from this update: ฅ^•ﻌ•^ฅ This cute little dog that could also be a cat. ∠( ᐛ 」∠)＿ This guy lying on his side is awesome and also reminds me very much of the Condescending Wonka meme. ੯ੁૂ‧̀͡u This is a really cute side profile of a dog. ୧(﹒︠ᴗ﹒︡)୨ This little guy is so happy and excited in a cute way. ⸍⚙̥ꇴ⚙̥⸌ I just like how crazy this one looks. (*σᴗσ)(ㅎᴗㅎ ) ｜‸눈;) I love the guy spying on this couple from behind a wall. (ꐦ ´͈ ᗨ `͈ ) This is one of the most expressive kaomoji I’ve ever seen. ⁽⁽ƈ ͡ (ु ˲̥̥̥́ ˱̥̥̥̀) ु⁾⁾ This poor guy fell over and hurt himself. ꉂ (๑¯ਊ¯)σ Some kind of ridiculous looking laughing bird. ꉂ ꀞꀞꀞ(ᕑᗢूᓫ∗)˒˒ Another excellent and super expressive laughing emoticon. I like how there’s a ho ho ho included there too. ⸌̷̻( ᷇ॢ〰ॢ ᷆◍)⸌̷̻♡⃛ This is a pretty cute in love emoticon. (۶•౪•)۶❤٩(•౪•٩) These guys are pretty cute too. [+..••] An NES controller emoticon! ┌( ಠ_ಠ)┘This guy reminds me a lot of Captain Hindsight from South Park. ♪~♪ ヽ໒(⌒o⌒)७ﾉ ♪~♪ Another very expressive emoticon that’s singing. ♪٩(✿′ᗜ‵✿)۶♪ There’s something about using ᗜ for a mouth that makes these emoticons look much more expressive. (－‸ლ) The face palm. This may be my new favourite Japanese emoticon! ( ･ㅂ･)و ̑̑ Success! :: (•ᴥ• )́`́’́`́’⻍ A kaomoji porcupine! (´•͈ुω•͈ू`) This shy little emoticon is pretty cute. ٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و Yawning from either waking up or going to sleep. Once again using ᗜ for a mouth looks awesome. (•᷉ुε ू•᷈,) I’m not entirely sure what you’re talking about but colour me intrigued… Please enjoy all the new emoticons, they’re at the ends of their respective categories and feel free to continue to suggest new emoticons for me to add to the site as well!
Valentines Day is almost here and whether you love this day or hate it there are Japanese emoticons for you. This is actually an event where we have a ton of appropriate emoticons in our Love, Kissing and Hugging categories. I’m not going to bother posting them all again here but I am going to point out my favourites. If you’re excited for Valentines day and you’re looking for some excellent kaomojis to text to your significant other, here are some of my favourites: ( ´͈ ॢꇴ `͈ॢ)･*♡ (๑ˊ͈ ॢꇴ ˋ͈)〜♡॰ॱ I love how expressive the face on both these emoticons are. (人-ω-)｡o.ﾟ｡*･♡Good Night♡･*｡ﾟo｡(-ω-人) This is a very sweet emoticon to text your significant other before you fall asleep if you’re apart. *ଘ( ॢᵕ꒶̮ᵕ(꒡ᵋ ꒡ღ)zZ‥ Here’s another sweet emoticon kissing someone who’s asleep. (づ￣ ³￣)づ This is always an excellent kissing/hugging/glomping emoticon appropriate for almost any situation. (ʃƪ ˘ ³˘) This is another really cute and sweet looking kissing emoticon. Shy emoticons also work great for Valentines Day if you like someone and you’re really shy. Now if you’re not looking forward to Valentines Day and all the commercialism and what not there are some excellent kaomoji that you can use too, especially when those couples you know post all kinds of Valentines Day nonsense on their Facebook pages. (∿°○°)∿ ︵ ǝʌol (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡︵ ǝʌol (╯°□°）╯︵ ǝʌol (╯°Д°）╯︵ ǝʌol These are all variations of the table flipping emoticon but they’re perfect if you’ve had it with “love”. ( ◜◡＾)っ✂╰⋃╯ If there’s a male you’re particularly angry with then this emoticon is quite appropriate. Any emoticon from the angry category also work perfectly when people won’t shut up about Valentines Day. There’s also actually a bunch of Valentines Day emoji as well. From left to right in the top row you have: a church for a wedding, a love hotel, some chocolate since in Japan on Valentines Day girls give chocolates to guys they like, a wrapped heart sort of gift, a guy and girl holding hands, two guys holding hands, two girls holding hands, a kiss, a couple and two bunny girls (because why not?) From left to right in the middle row you have: a guy bowing in apology because he screwed up and didn’t get a Valentines gift for his girl, several different colours of hears, a broken heart, a growing heart, a beating heart and two hearts. On the bottom row from left tonight you have: a sparkling heart, revolving hearts, a heart pierced by an arrow, a low note, a kiss/lipstick mark, an engagement ring, a diamond and a glass of wine.

When people talk about Japanese emoticons they usually use words like kaomoji, emoji or just Japanese emoticons to describe them but what’s the difference and what do these words mean? “Japanese Emoticons” is a pretty broad term and doesn’t really mean anything. Both kaomoji and emoji are Japanese emoticons since they’re both different types of emoticons that came from Japan.
