When I see something like this:
I think some voodoo demon wants to say something to me. o_O
My Japanese friends often use kaomoji. But, when they add (´▽｀) or (ﾟ∀ﾟ) I can't tell if they are sad, confused, happy, or even angry. I just can't see the emotion for an upside-down A.
Maybe you can draw something based on the most popular kaomoji, so I can envision it in my mind like you do.
I'm afraid of those demon smilies! Please help me understand how to interpret kaomoji.
