Cute Overload :D
The JP Twitterverse went into a tizzy-fit when Twitterer panda_tamio uploaded a photo of a puppeh who looked like the Japanese “Frowny Face” emoticon.
Here’s a partial listing of QTE-moticons:

Aww, don’t be all frowny-face, sweet koinu!
What can I say?
I don’t get it, I guess… :(

emoji (>_<) face is you
make a wish haiku
Hmm…I never considered that a frowny face, more like a “yikes, jeesh, arggh” face.
And the puppy is darn cute too. The likeness is pretty amazingks.
I sense the comments on this posting will be relevant and useful!

Okay, I’m confused. What are the semi-colons and random letters on the side of the faces supposed to imply?
It varies. The semicolon indicates a ‘sweatdrop’ which is meant to indicate sheepishness, embarassment or chagrin, in the “flop-sweat” sort of way.
The letters are usually meant to indicate hand positions. For instance a b is a thumbs up, an a means “hand raised with one finger scratching the head” see “flop-sweat” above. the f and other letters are the same but on the other side.
