Goodbye duck mouth, say hello to Kappa mouth and Usa-chan face

Even women's faces become fads, and the current "in" thing right now is the "kappa mouth".

This apparently refers to making a V-shaped mouth with one's lips slightly tucked in, as Amachan star Rena Nounen is the one who's best known for this. Thanks to Nounen's popularity, this sort of face has also gathered attention with people saying: "The V-shaped mouth is so cute", "She looks like a kappa".

And the times have now switched from the duck mouth to the kappa mouth.

The duck mouth was the previous trend, which actresses Aya Ueto, Yuriko Yoshitaka, and ex-AKB48 member Tomomi Itano were known for. This was particularly popular with the men who called it "sexy" and was a sensation.

And as all of these duck mouth pictures were being taken, people have started seeing this phenomenon as something "unnatural".

On the other hand, the kappa mouth gives off an innocent and child-like vibe (for the time being), unlike the crooked feel that the duck mouth gives off. It's still too early to say that the kappa mouth has entirely replaced the duck mouth, but it has slowly gained popularity thanks to the cute Nounen, so adult women might be better off staying away from this.

Apart from Nounen, there's also Reina Triendl who does the kappa mouth a lot. Both of them appeal to the public with their innocent looks.

These are the current faces that are "in!" For the kappa mouth, there's Rena Nounen (top left) and Reina Triendl (Top right).

The "Usa-chan face" are Masami Nagasawa, Mayuko Kawakita, and Kasumi Arimura. Both Nounen and Triendl also fall under the "Usa-chan face" category.

This is still under the premise that the girl doing it is cute or pretty.
Ugly girls will be ugly no matter what they do.

Did the duck mouth originate from Hirosue?
If it began in the late '90s, then it's lasted for quite a while.

People who think that these dumb faces look cute are abnormal
