The Japanese language is usually encoded using double-byte character codes. As a result there is a bigger variety of characters that can be used in emoticons, many of which cannot be reproduced in ASCII. Most kaomoji contain Cyrillic and other foreign letters to create even more complicated expressions analogous to ASCII art's level of complexity. To type such emoticons, the input editor that is used to type Japanese on a user's system is equipped with a dictionary of emoticons, after which the user simply types the Japanese word (or something close to it) that represents the desired emoticon to convert the input into such complicated emoticons. Such expressions are known as Shift JIS art.

Users of 2channel in particular have developed a wide variety of unique emoticons using obscure characters. Some have taken on a life of their own and become characters in their own right, like Mona.

I've been wondering how to make those little things! Thanks a lot, Roll! (`・ω・´)

I particularly like this one: (´-`).。oO

So this is where Sol got this from.....

I am sad to say but Roll, you've been added to my "beat with a newspaper" list. Make sure to ask Sol how everything works. He's a regular and knows ALL the ropes.

Some of these just scare me.

That's amazing! But for some reason, it doesn't work for me...

You need a browser that can display Japanese encoding, Shift JIS, and your computer needs to be able to display Japanese text too (Shift JIS again - no that's not a command silly, it's the name of the encoding).

What do you mean Ina? I've always been using these at random places. I can only cut and paste. :/

Sol? You mean he has a Japanese keyboard? *Droooools*

Nah the dude used those faces some time back during our conversations and I'd always tell him to stop and he'd always pull one of those out.
He just used copy and paste from this topic.

So to counteract him, I'd beat his face with a rolled up newspaper. (Not really) He doesn't use them anymore....I wonder why?
