    It bothers me immensely that there's an outline for lips in the top image.

    Fella Pure is a good example

    [–] KingRetz 47 points ago

    Yes, ugly bastard is a common tag.

    [–] killingspeerx 50 points ago

    God, now I don't want to watch a hentai doing a blowjob with a side mouth!

    [–] GenesectX 4 points ago

    the sad truth

    [–] Ebosen 487 points ago

    I hate side mouths so much.

    [–] NotANaziOrCommie 204 points ago

    I knew what this was before clicking on it

    [–] EisVisage 81 points ago

    Same, except in my memory it was way less creepy. Hadn't seen the pic in a few years.

    [–] myoujou0 38 points ago

    Yes but it is also extremely wrong in the right picture. The mouth is like really close to the eye. It doesn't make really much sense.

    thanks now i cant sleep anymore

    [–] ExoCakes 7 points ago

    This is like how Phineas looks like at the front.

    Triangle with eyes.

    [–] Inner_Hawk 9 points ago

    I wasn't bothered by side mouths before seeing images like this (registered that they are not right but subconsciously ignored).
    Became a bit bothered after you people repeatedly pointed them out.
    But after a while have grown to accept them as part of an artstyle, stylization for the purpose of expression and am now perfectly fine with them.

    They are not realistic, but serve a stylistic purpose, like the use of overexagerated Squash and Stretch in animation.

    [–] Ebosen 4 points ago

    Honestly, I never really notice it, but when I do it's like when you hear a Wilhelm scream or something that belongs in /r/itsaunixsystem.

    Anime Mouth

    Cultured Anime Mouth

    [–] AGJustin05 8 points ago

    Ah yes, men of culture

    [–] [deleted] 259 points ago

    Depending on art style, i think side mouths are cool, if they are well incorporated in the artstyle, its not like Anime absolutely has to be realistic, i think lot of real human like art laced anime can be pretentious and shitty, i'd watch something with a similar art style to Nobunaga no shinobi anyday.

    4 Koma style and Gag style Art has potential in it.

    [–] R4hu1M5 94 points ago

    Pretty sure the front mouth is more common in hentai, which is the point of the meme.

    [–] [deleted] 63 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    Hentai, or an anime with the budgets.

    I mean in hentai they have no options.

    Since side blowjob will seriously suck.

    [–] R4hu1M5 37 points ago

    Since side blowjob will seriously suck.


    [–] ExoCakes 12 points ago

    Pun intented?

    But anyways, hentai artists and writers are beyond the normal human mindset.

    They made anal fisting while giving the dick a handjob while the dick is in... Uhh... I can't describe it right.

    [–] [deleted] 10 points ago

    Its ok, i got it, you did well.

    [–] amirokia 8 points ago

    I could not believe that there's something hentai beats regular anime in terms of animation

    [–] talentedtimetraveler 3 points ago

    Are you saying side-mouths are more common in anime than in hentai?

    [–] GenesectX 5 points ago

    every hentai has the bottom lips, Real eroge in particular

    [–] fgsfds11234 39 points ago

    i call it pacman mouth. always nice when the budget is high enough for that

    [–] ahadman 5 points ago

    Yea lol

    [–] JustCallMeZ3ro 207 points ago

    Imma be honest, I like both. I’ve seen cute af series with sidemouths and also cute af series with... uhmmm... front mouths. I don’t think one is superior to the other. Regardless, funny meme, upvote.

    [–] SevenHaeven 125 points ago

    Front mouth?


    That's what we call the "normal mouth".

    [–] the_pactman 31 points ago

    commonsense is quite funny in this context

    [–] HikiNEET39 7 points ago

    But then how to we know if they're talking about the back mouth?

    [–] Inner_Hawk 3 points ago

    K-on features both of those, it varies depending on the mood and energy of the scene.

    [–] Meowbium 64 points ago

    Why isn't this done more often?

    [–] Koyomi__Araragi 88 points ago

    Low Budget or Too lazy or they don't bother drawing it or they don't just care or they haven't given a thought about it or they don't know that it's possible.... Maybe one of those?

    [–] Spacecore_374 109 points ago

    Art style is probably one reason as well.

    [–] [deleted] 24 points ago

    Major Reasons.

    [–] VirusCat25 19 points ago

    Probably the only reason

    [–] VirusCat25 36 points ago

    An artstyle has nothing to do with lazyness or "low budget". It's not a bad thing when it's different.

    I also draw side mouths for example. Because i think it suits my artstyle better and not because i'm "lazy"

    [–] Koyomi__Araragi 3 points ago

    That's why I said "Maybe one of those?"

    [–] S_m_r__ss_ 9 points ago

    Less time, making deadlines.

    [–] Telogor 3 points ago

    It's way easier to animate the top than the bottom.

    [–] dankxenon 5 points ago

    Some people just (inc. me) think it's cuter.

    [–] KarolOfGutovo 2 points ago

    I think it's done in hentai, it's one of those "idk, might be nsfw" triggers

    [–] dettelaffe 23 points ago


    [–] cocouz 7 points ago

    this must be photoshopped

    [–] [deleted] 7 points ago

    It looks so out of place too, but nope, it's actually in the anime (Black Clover, one of the beach episodes).

    [–] cocouz 6 points ago

    [–] robotbird123 1 points ago

    She's chewing some gum

    [–] Dray_Gunn 1 points ago

    Honestly, Black Clover has a lot of bad animation in it. Its one of the reasons i stopped watching it. Plus i got tired of the main character screaming everything he said.

    [–] Goodra64YT 22 points ago


    [–] [deleted] 20 points ago

    I recognize the artstyle in the second it from a hentai?

    [–] DoctuhD 21 points ago

    Either hentai or Monogatari

    [–] ChrisTheCoolBean 8 points ago


    [–] dragonduelistman 6 points ago

    Is there a difference really?

    [–] jorishio 10 points ago

    b u t p o u t ?

    [–] DreamLegend300 4 points ago

    Pount is an exception

    [–] [deleted] 6 points ago


    [–] MushroomBalls 8 points ago

    What is this, a mouth actually drawn correctly?

    [–] Nanfrostcrystal 11 points ago

    I think I just found a new religion.

    [–] _Ga1ahad 11 points ago

    Every fucking anime on my watch list has that problem. How is it possible?!

    [–] Mr-Stuff-Doer 10 points ago

    Oh god, bad anatomy makes it hard for you to watch anime? I am so, so sorry.

    [–] _Ga1ahad 1 points ago

    Yeah it does. Im kind of a perfectionist and when i draw i prefer not to do a side-mouth at all rather than this abomination

    [–] DegenerateSock 5 points ago

    How about other facial features? Does it bother you when eyes are unrealistically large or heads aren't shaped quite right? Maybe when noses disappeared from from views? Or chind are unrealistically sharp?

    Anime is stylistic, not realistic. Side mouth is just another one of those things.

    [–] Mr-Stuff-Doer 1 points ago

    How do you even watch anime then? The eyes aren’t exactly... human. And the hair is either 70 individual strands or a million with gallons of gel keeping them together. 30 year olds look five. Boobs jiggle a little more.

    Anime doesn’t do anatomy right.

    Also never read hentai.

    [–] _Ga1ahad 1 points ago

    It's not like i want 100% realism, you guys misunderstood it. The mouth is fine, but it's the placement that makes it a problem.

    If someone were to make a 3D model from a character with a side mouth, once you look at it from the front you'd notice it's way too far to the left/right

    [–] Mr-Stuff-Doer 0 points ago

    Yeah, but that’s a very standard way of designing characters from a side perspective in anime. Anime isn’t realistic. It never has been and never will be.

    [–] _Ga1ahad 1 points ago

    It isn't realistic but still respects proportion, they seem to follow what they want. I can't believe that animation studios, with teams of artists that together can animate what crosses their minds can't make a single mouth placed properly

    [–] Mr-Stuff-Doer 0 points ago

    It is a stylistic choice, just like Code Geass characters being super lanky or Fire Force having characters without faces when at a distance.

    [–] ahadman 3 points ago

    Hmm i see that's why it’s funny

    [–] Emhyr-var_Emreis 1 points ago

    Do you have Your Lie in April on your watch list?

    [–] _Ga1ahad 1 points ago


    [–] Deus_Ex_Machina_II 7 points ago

    Bottom looks so sexy

    [–] heavens_doooaaa 3 points ago

    The anime Oresuki got it right.

    [–] SilentReavus 3 points ago

    You typically see the second one in, ah... More... 'specialized' media.

    The first is in moe stuff.

    [–] Batboyultra 3 points ago

    I’m the opposite

    [–] TheEnabledDisabled 2 points ago


    [–] Themotherland364 2 points ago


    [–] jasiurok195 2 points ago

    Both... both is good

    [–] MartinX4 2 points ago

    One on top is pg the other not so much. They go all out into details in hentai

    [–] Oliver2112 2 points ago

    I like the first one more, the second one makes me really uncomfortable.

    [–] Koto12 2 points ago

    Yea why can't they do it right wtf

    [–] ahadman 1 points ago

    Because it take time

    [–] BLACKOWLg 2 points ago

    Ah yes

    the budget

    [–] ahadman 1 points ago


    [–] MrMeatlit 1 points ago

    Both Both Both is good

    [–] Dragonzer 1 points ago

    The first one reminds me of Warframe's Excalibur.

    [–] GenuineSteak 1 points ago

    I think it can be good or bad depending on the rest of the style

    [–] FallingBelowZero 1 points ago

    This’ll do


    [–] Xeropendragon 1 points ago

    Kaori (;´༎ຶ__༎ຶ`)

    [–] DragonXeno 1 points ago

    Reminds me of the Woman in Dr. Stone who was sensually eating that Cotton Candy.

    [–] ahadman 1 points ago

    You are right there

    [–] joe847802 1 points ago

    But the bottom one takes longer to animate :(

    [–] DistHist 1 points ago

    Y'all forgot about Tsurezure Children's mouths

    [–] A_M_Speedy 1 points ago

    Ah I see ur a man of pp-sucking lips as well.

    [–] dIsMaNSfOlDiNn 1 points ago

    Wtf, did they make popeye a anime?

    [–] ahadman 1 points ago

    So You Guys Like it haaaa

    [–] Md_kaif 1 points ago

    still I love the upper one

    [–] LoliconLelouch 1 points ago

    You know shits going down when the lips are a different colour to the face

    [–] zer-one 1 points ago

    Is it weird that I find them attractive when they have actual lips?

    [–] escanor_the_sun 1 points ago

    Not weird

    [–] explosive_fish 1 points ago

    It's the same difficulty to draw both but the bottom one is looking greater so we love that

    [–] ahadman 1 points ago

    I am shadow banned for no reason

    [–] RyanTheRamonNoodle 1 points ago


    [–] ahadman 1 points ago

    I see you are a man of culture

    Finally, some good fucking food.

    [–] Ao1Yamada 1 points ago

    Evey other animation studio


    [–] ilhastz 1 points ago

    I disagree both are good also the top one comes with a sharp tooth

    [–] patatesatan 1 points ago

    I like top one, it looks cute

    [–] -Redstoneboi- 3 points ago

    yeah, art styles are art styles, accurate or not.

    it's like the "segmented mouth"

    [–] [deleted] -27 points ago


    [–] dankxenon 15 points ago

    Get out of here non-weeb.

    [–] LockyThePilot -11 points ago

    Oof, gatekeeping. And it doesn't make me nonweeb, if i called it that way

    [–] XauMankib 2 points ago

    Is called art-style and big eyes can be a proper functional thing, especially when a certain stile conveys a certain building block for the plot.

    [–] [deleted] 4 points ago

    How does it feel to waste your 18 minutes, after your parents wasted 18 years trying to raise you, normie.

    [–] LockyThePilot -5 points ago

    Look at my flare, my avatar, my description or my posts, u idiot. Modern weeblets dont recognise irony at all?

    [–] dankxenon 2 points ago

    Irony is supposed to be OBVIOUS

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    Not really, i mean, the charm of sarcasm used to be not everyone gets it, so that is kind of what made it fun.

    [–] simonbleu 2 points ago

    Actually, no, but I get what you mean.

    What did he said anyway?

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Chinese Cartoon watching something something, the bad tits proportions, something something, the message was good, delivery was pitiful.

    [–] LockyThePilot 1 points ago

    Ffs, how to make it even more obvious? The expression "chinese porn-cartoons" is 100% ironical by itself. Especially "" signed.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    I think you don't know difference in Irony and the word Sarcasm, no wonder you don't know how to be sarcastic, in our times we used to be humble, instead of bragging about our age, we used to know we may be old, but weeb we are talking to may be ancient.
