Yaeba – where the cat girl look came from

A lot of times in anime you see girls with either cat-like teeth, or yaeba.  But what a lot of people don’t realize is that Japanese girls often have these type of teeth in real life.  It used to be (and probably is still in otaku circles) considered to be a very cute look.

Here’s a picture of a girl from a computer convention.  One look at her and you can see where the look in anime came from.

    おもしろい、ね?(Interesting, huh?) A couple of my childhood friends had this.
    They called it “eye teeth”. They got braces to correct it. Even so, it appears
    unique. ^-^

    (Was that symbol correct? I was going for the anime-ish face/scratching your
    head?)
