Are there any gestures that piss you off when they are used in anime? Or is it the other way around and you like them?

How do you feel when somebody uses typical anime poses and gestures in public?
>>
The double peace as soon as you see someone taking a picture thing makes me happy.
>>
>>116804061
Me too, i love it when a bunch of girls do it
>>
>>116804087
The best is when the cut is done so that you see it through the camera lens and it's shaping up to be a good candid shot and then they notice and immediately do a double piece with a big ol grin instead. Like "hah, you thought you'd get a candid shot of me but you get this cliche pose instead."
>>
>>116804156
Bonus points for awkward smiles on characters who are nervous or just not very photogenic.

I do the bottom left and right signal/greeting, and also both "excuse me/dontcha think?/right?"s.
I also do something similar to the boo, except with a sweeping gesture on top of it when I want someone to shut up or fuck off, and wave goodbye while walking away and not looking at people, with the greeting gestures. And steeple my fingers when seated and waiting. And stroke my chin when I'm thinking.

I use a lot of body language now that I think about it. Haven't done a peace sign since I was like seven years old or something though.
>>
Does anyone even remember a fingertip hesitation gesture?

Smiling while closing your eyes

WHY

HOW DOES IT MAKE SENSE
>>
>>116804317
When you're a chink, your smiling cheeks go up, closing your eyes completely. Or that's how I imagine this.
>>
That limp wristed wave where it looks like they're telling you to bugger off, but they actually want you to come closer

always annoys me.

Let me tell you something you little faggot.

While I quite enjoyed the relaxed slice-of-life teenage romance feel of the show, I can see why some would find it boring and not to their taste. I respect your opinion, but will have to politely disagree.

On topic, I hate thumbs-up. So fucking old and corny. Nobody actually does it anymore.
>>
That "iyaiyaiya" waving a hand in front of your face thing. It always makes me think someone farted.
>>
>>116804781
I respect your differing taste and I thank you for replying to my image with an appropriate gesture example, faggot.
>>
>>116804781
I give thumbs up all the time.
I also say things like "Rock on."

I don't have any friends.
>>
>>116804317
I used to do this in middle school
I must have looked like an idiot

I also used to do the naruto run
>>
>>116804967
Ever since I watched some naruto when season 1 came out I can't run in any other way. Crap.
>>
I am a big fan of the "muri" denial gesture.

Both arms crossed in front of the upper torso to from an 'X' shape.
>>
>>116804781
Fuck you, there's nothing wrong with a thumbs up.

I do this one when I notice someone I know. I don't think it's anime, people do it all the time, seen it in a bunch of movies too.
>>
>>116804833
I can see why.
You seem like you came right out of the eighties.
>>
>>116804317
It does when you're facing someone retarded and just try to maintain courtesy while giving yourself a moment to compose yourself. Force a smile, close your eyes, calm down.
>>
>>116804781
Come to Australia, people use thumbs up for non verbal communication all the time. Pretty much how you interact with people in cars.
>>
This one sexually arouses me.

I've used it plenty of times, but mainly when helping someone cheat a test where I can see their answers.
>>116805788
That is the only circumstance it's acceptable if you're not blind though.
>>116804186
Love this but hate >>116804061 in general, especially in hentai.
I have never seen or heard of anyone doing that ever IRL.

This one here is always fine with me. Needs to happen more often in anime.

>>116803982
No need to thank me. Just doing my job.

Close up of the mouth, I hate that shot so fucking much

Same with eating with your eyes closed.
>>
>>116808324
Yeah what are they even trying to accomplish with that
>>
>>116808571
I hate when they go "ompf!" or "hachp!" for every little bite they make, also muffled moaning when chewing. Who does that?
>>
I remember that greentext from some Anon who tried doing the "smile with both eyes closed" thing. He was so embaressed afterwards and made a total fool of himself

A woman at my work makes muffled moaning while chewing. But she's also the size of a planet, so it's just disgusting to hear.

>>
>>116812893
You misunderstand. She's holding The Ring in her hand, and she's telling Frodo to leave it to her. "Determination" because she's going to use violence if Frodo protests.

I have the feeling that japanese people don't understand how this works, although I can't explain why; it usually is used in coherent situations but something just seems off when they do it.

I also don't get why anime characters aways extend their arms when doing this

it pisses me off
>>
>>116813455
How?
>>
>>116813115
Flamboyant, not chuuni. Araki didn't invent the poses either, he got them out of fashion mags and shit.

It's not the "peace sign" V. They hold their hand sideways, like a karate chop or something, and the fore finger points to right, and the middle finger points to the left
>>
None of these gestures are exclusive to anime, they are typical for asian cultures
>>
>>116813604
I don't get it
