  • A style of drawing extremely common in anime and manga that has absolutely no equivalency in the West. Normally proportioned characters are shrunk and distorted in the super deformed style. Bodies become very small and heads become disproportionately large. Often times characters in a particular scene will be drawn in both normal and super deformed styles. Usually when a character is drawn in this way it denotes an extreme mood change, anger, sillyness, or exasperation. Characters are also drawn in super deformed style just because it makes them look so cute... and in Japan, cuteness is everything! model figures, dolls, keychains, and various toys will also present characters in the super deformed style.
