Japanese Anime Iconography is the cornerstone for expressing "sometimes hard to convey emotions" without having to spell it all out for the reader/viewership.

What Iconography do you like best or find helps most in anime?

(Yes, many of us would say we "like it all", but if that's the case, maybe try and narrow it down to what is used best in your favorite anime or genre)

The bloody nose emotion is for sure hilarious... although it makes me wonder if anyone in real life has had that kind of reaction

Bloody nose, but we are seeing more "Facial Sweat" nowadays.

I think the one I like best, that's not listed, is the "red lines on face" when embarrassed

I see bloody noses are currently winning, and rightfully so.

Of the choices, it would be the "sweatdrop" for me.


But my favorite is definitely the "solid blush", usually seen on loli and chibi, adding a cuteness appeal when a character acts childish or cheeky (no pun intended?).

@TripleBaka I like the solid blush in anime, but not so much in manga. In black and white art, it typically drowns out the eyes too much IMHO.

I am happy the bloody nose thing doesnt happen in real life like it does in anime xD that would be a disaster.

LOL .. that.. is a good point!

But then again, if I blew a giant bubble with my nose each time I slept in public, that would really put a damper on my ability to relax on long flights
