It's because when you smile, your chins moves upwards, creating (depending on your face structure) something alike closed eyes. Besides, it's looks overly awesome when they smile with closed eyes.

Finally I have enough CR points to start my own topic!!YAY
anyway it's been bugging me for the longest time mostly romance themed anime,I know it's supposed to be fictional but there are things that just can't uderstand But are still true though
for example
1.all anime characters Smile with their eyes closed ALL THE DAMN TIME,sometimes talk and talk with their eyes closed!! (I tried smiling and talking with my eyes closed and i felt really stupid )
2.In some anime the main characters never change their clothes (how is that possible?!)
3.In high school romance anime characters always kiss at school(kissing is not such a casual thing in japan by the way)and they never get caught not even once!
4.The main characters always barge in at the perfect time for action not a second late!!like when someone is just coming out of the bath and the other just opens the door <hen the towel falls down!!even irony has limits
5.how characters tend to deny their feelings even though it's so obvious!!and even better is when a character doesn't notice the others feelings when it's right there in his face

this thread might be random or stupid!!but honestly while watching I always wonder if anybody else have noticed these things or even other things
*ABOUT THE TITLE:I Know it's "Irresponsible " i just made a mistake! I'm very sorry




The point of eyes closed is a Japanese point of view. Eyes closed means your closed to being open minded and/or means you live with your own expectations and reasonings.

Such as. An evil villain who's eyes are closed means he sees life in his own way. A hero character or a good person with thier eyes closed often means that they look through the world in rose colored glasses, in an innocent way.

I think what your failing to understand is that it is a Japanese fictional story. The way we think is a bit different then the way westerners think. As such our stories and anime have a different way of expressing themselves. Small things like Westerners motion someone to them by using their hands palm up and crooking their fingers upwards to motion someone to come to them. We pretty much do the same thing, but with our palms down. Different culture has different posturing, and different ways of showing emotional ideals and thoughts.

What is weird in making those things in an anime?

considering the degree of reality in most anime doesn't those things just lack reason?!or even common sense?
I know it's "anime" but it's still "slice of life"


Have you considered this explanations?

1. Not all anime are on the "slice of life" category. An exact opposite of your last statement: It is a "slice of life" but it is "anime".
2. Anime has its own style. It is not required in an anime to have the 100% reality touch because anything does not need to make sense in anime.
3. It was meant to be in that way. The eyes being closed while smiling is meant in that way. "Cliches" in anime are as rampant as "cliches" in real life. Only different. Like I said, it is style.

degree of reality?? ughh even if it's slice of life you just don't compare anime to real life..and I'm not going to bother telling you why because your smart enough to know it by yourself...and also, "one" of the reasons they do the smiling or talking with their eyes closed or even punching someone to the ends of the earth is to add flavor to a scene...because anime characters have no real emotions, artists express them through the use of facial expressions or out of this world actions

I've watched enough anime to know that much!!!
but you're still not getting my point!!I know it is fictional and those are just a way to display emotions!!
still anime is based on daily life,where the heck do u think the creators and mangaka get their ideas?! nothings comes from just plain void!
please don't treat me like an anime hater or something!i love anime and i wouldn't wanna change a single thing about it!!I was just curious :D

Thank you for the explanation!!I Know every culture has it's own way of expressing many things!!
