Smiling face (Japanese style)

Users from Japan popularized a style of emoticons that can be understood without tilting one's head to the left. These emoticons are usually found in a format similar to (*_*). The asterisks indicate the eyes; the central character, commonly an underscore, the mouth; and the parentheses, the outline of the face.

The emphasis on the eyes is reflected in the common usage of emoticons that use only the eyes, e.g. ^^

Characters like hyphens or periods can replace the underscore; the period is often used for a smaller, "cuter" mouth or to represent a nose, e.g. (^.^).

An apostrophe ' or semicolon ; can be added to the emoticon to imply apprehension or embarrassment, in the same way that a sweat drop is used in popular and common Asian animation, e.g. ^^'
