  1. Today I learned that one possible output for "neko" in the microsoft JP IME is =^_^=. This is apparently due to 2chan users adding it to their personal IME and widely distributing the files.


    You can also use "ai" to get ぁぃ(。・ω・。)ノ and other variations, "ase" to get (-_-;) among others, warau for ((´∀`))ケラケラ etc.


    I feel like I've just broken a secret code or something.

      On one hand, hey I can finally get some of those weird emoji really easily (;゚Д゚)


      On the other hand, wow that is pretty wacky

      You can also use it to get emojis, which is where I found this out from (though emojis are banned on SPUF for some reason.)  Sometimes you get characters that aren't technically emojis like ☆ from "hoshi", ♪ from "ongaku," or ♀ from "mesu."


      But man when looking into this I have found a bunch of weird stuff.  Here's some websites archiving and giving tips for kaomoji use:

      I also discovered that the emoji feature in Windows 10+ also has a kaomoji page.  (Access by WIN + ;)   Though I think the IME option is better once you know what words correspond to which kaomoji.

      a small addition: I was pleasantly surprised to see that typing "nya" has one of the predictions "nyanpasu." it's not too surprising if it really was copied from 2ch users but still fun


      That last link blew my mind with the "type english sentence by starting with a capital letter" though, that's a genius feature
