Artful Ascii Arts of “Suzumiya Haruhi” and her company.
Online bulletin board users post facemarks and ascii arts to show one's feeling which can't be described in verbal language. But making the ascii art best matches your feelings might be rather difficult for you English environment users, for there are not so many letters and symbols.
Japanese language has as many characters as 2000 at least and there are many ascii arts made by anonimous inhabitants of the Internet.
Here's some from flood tide of ascii arts of famous anime "Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi". For readers without Japanese environment, we rendered them in GIF format. Enjoy!
