The Japanese concept of kawaii—best translated as “cuteness”—has grown from a national trend to a global phenomenon. Sanrio’s Hello Kitty has been valued at $7 billion; the Oxford English Dictionary named an emoji its 2015 Word of the Year; and Nintendo’s Pokémon Go recently became the most downloaded game in smartphone history. The kawaii movement is wide in scope, spanning Manga comics, Harajuku fashion, and Takashi Murakami’s “Superflat” artworks, but what’s behind the aesthetic, and why is it so popular?
Japan’s culture of cute began in the 1970s with a youth movement developed by teenage girls, involving handwriting in a childlike style. The new script was given a variety of names, such as marui ji (round writing), koneko ji (kitten writing), and burikko ji (fake-child writing), and featured text with stylized lines, hearts, stars, Latin characters, and cartoon faces. Many scholars cite this trend as a reaction against the rigidity of post-World War II Japan, as the pursuit of kawaii enabled youth to find a sense of individuality and playfulness in an increasingly serious and depersonalized environment. While many schools initially banned this writing style, advertisers quickly caught onto the trend, using the new aesthetic to market products to the younger generation.
In 1974, the stationary company Sanrio launched the character of Hello Kitty, printing the now-iconic whiskered white cat on a vinyl coin purse. Forty-two years later, Hello Kitty has been placed on over 50,000 products in more than 70 countries, including toaster ovens, alarm clocks, airplanes, and even sex toys. In 2008, Japan named Hello Kitty as its tourism ambassador, an official invite to the rest of the world to join in on the adorability binge that is kawaii.
But Hello Kitty is not alone. In fact, each of Japan’s 47 governmental offices has its own kawaii mascot, such as the rosy-cheeked bear Kumamom for the bullet train and the wide-eyed Prince Pickles for the police force. Pokémon has developed another 700 kawaii creatures over the past 20 years, some of which are currently running virtually rampant in cyberspace. Emojis, bitmojis, and even those adorable Casper subway advertisements all take root in the kawaii philosophy.cute pastel goth adorable emoji girly creepy pusheen nyan cat simple llama alpaca hipster

kawaii dark wallpaper kawaii While kawaii characters are diverse, spanning species both real and imagined, they often follow a basic formula. Kawaii creatures have limited facial features—two wide eyes, a small nose, and maybe a dot for the mouth—rendering them emotionally ambiguous and enabling viewers to project upon them. (For this reason, iPhone emojis have been criticized as not kawaii enough by some Japanese consumers because they feature a greater amount of emotional specificity.) Almost always outlined in black, kawaii characters are pastel-colored, graphically simple, and childlike. Designed to elicit a sense of nostalgia, they often feature big heads and little bodies in order to match the proportions of infants and baby animals.
Scholars have suggested that people grow attached to kawaii characters precisely because of their youthful nature, which elicits the evolutionary impulse to care for the young. “Hello Kitty needs protection,” the sociologist Merry White once explained. “She’s not only adorable and round, she’s also mouthless and can’t speak for herself.” Tamagotchis—a nostalgia-inducing timecapsule for those who came of age in the ’90s—are Japanese gadgets that epitomize this theory, as they require users to look after small digital pets that are sweet and helpless. Reportedly, some Pokémon Go users have opted out of evolving their pokémons, preferring to keep them in an infantile state rather than growing their powers.

The effect of the aesthetic is also to return us to a childlike state. Many from the so-called kawaii generation also desire to be kawaii themselves, whether through infantile voices or juvenile dress. For example, the kawaii trend of “Lolita fashion” promotes a Victorian style of clothing, ripe with innocent-looking petticoats, ruffles, pastel colors, and large ribbons and bows. Whether Lolita-kawaii is named after Vladimir Nabokov’s controversial novel or is Japanese in origin, however, is still a hotly debated topic.
The Lolita aesthetic is not the only sub-brand of kawaii thriving today. Guro-kawaii (grotesque cute), ero-kawaii (erotic cute), kimo-kawaii (creepy cute), and busu-kawaii (ugly cute) have all emerged as alternatives to the more traditional style of Hello Kitty and Pikachu. Meanwhile, contemporary artists Murakami and Yoshitomo Nara have ushered kawaii into the fine arts, creating their own series of wide-eyed characters that range from the vapidly cute to the uncomfortably sinister. dango wallpaper kawaii bedroom wallpaper kawaii bear wallpaper girly kawaii wallpaper gatos kawaii wallpaper cute kawaii wallpaper desktop hatsune miku kawaii wallpaper hd hinata kawaii wallpaper iphone 5 kawaii wallpaper iphone 4 kawaii wallpaper cute kawaii kitty wallpaper cute kawaii iphone wallpaper anime-girl-kawaii-wallpaper.jpg anime kawaii wallpaper hd best kawaii wallpaper cute kawaii animals wallpaper cute kawaii girl wallpaper cute kawaii donut wallpaper iphone 6 kawaii wallpaper kaneki kawaii wallpaper kawaii anime wallpaper tumblr kawaii anime wallpaper iphone kawaii anime wallpaper hd kawaii anime winter wallpaper kawaii apple wallpaper kawaii background wallpaper kawaii avengers wallpaper kawaii anime live wallpaper kawaii anime girl wallpaper hd kawai piano wallpaper kauai beach wallpaper kawaii alien wallpaper kawaii alpaca wallpaper kawaii anime desktop wallpaper kawaii anime boy wallpaper kawaii doodle wallpaper kawaii duck wallpaper kawaii mlp wallpaper kawaii mermaid wallpaper kawaii marvel wallpaper kawaii mochi wallpaper kawaii molang wallpaper kawaii monster wallpaper kawaii monkey wallpaper kawaii marshmallow hd wallpaper kawaii macaron wallpaper kawaii lion wallpaper kawaii league of legends wallpaper kawaii llama wallpaper kawaii lock screen wallpaper kawaii mac wallpaper kawaii lock wallpaper kawaii music wallpaper kawaii mustache wallpaper kawaii pattern wallpaper acnl kawaii wallpaper kawaii paris wallpaper kawaii penguin wallpaper kawaii pig wallpaper kawaii pixel gif wallpaper kawaii pineapple wallpaper kawaii panda wallpaper iphone kawaii panda wallpaper hd kawaii neko girl wallpaper kawaii naruto wallpaper kawaii nutella wallpaper kawaii octopus wallpaper kawaii owl wallpaper kawaii onigiri wallpaper kawaii lamb wallpaper kawaii lace wallpaper kawaii green wallpaper kawaii gothic wallpaper kawaii giraffe wallpaper kawaii grunge wallpaper kawaii gyaru wallpaper kawaii hd wallpaper for android kawaii hase wallpaper kawaii ghost wallpaper kawaii food wallpaper iphone kawaii egg wallpaper kawaii easter wallpaper kawaii emo wallpaper kawaii emoji wallpaper kawaii fairy kei wallpaper kawaii emoticons wallpaper kawaii heart wallpaper kawaii hello kitty live wallpaper kawaii killer wallpaper kawaii keyboard wallpaper kawaii japan wallpaper kawaii kirby wallpaper kawaii kitty wallpaper kawaii korean wallpaper kawaii koala wallpaper kawaii ipod 5 wallpaper kawaii iphone wallpaper tumblr kawaii house wallpaper kawaii hello kitty wallpaper kawaii iphone 5 wallpaper tumblr kawaii iphone 5c wallpaper kawaii iphone wallpaper pinterest kawaii iphone wallpaper hd kawaii pixel wallpaper In his paintings and sculptures, Murakami reminds viewers that the style of kawaii carries with it a certain darkness. His depictions of cartoon mushrooms, for example, appear entirely joyous at first glance, but also recall the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. For Murakami, the kawaii aesthetic acts as an enduring symbol of the infantilized nature of occupied Japan after World War II—a manner through which people found escape from the trauma of war.
I Don't Wanna Grow Up, 2012
Since its beginnings, the kawaii craze has been a rebellion against the seriousness of adulthood—a counterbalance to the harshness of the real world. Under the strain of a polarizing election cycle, it is perhaps no wonder why over 15 million people have decided to temporarily tune out the news for a dive into Pokémon Go. The app invokes the child within, encouraging users to find imaginary friends and care for them, or at least so I’ve heard. This writer is still at level one.
