Ago-kui is the new kabe-don, and it looks incredibly cute when done to pets!
Are you still caught up in the kabe-don craze? We’ve even seen some variations to the wall-pounding approach, but it’s time to change it up for the next manga inspired photo trend – ago-kui!

Japanese Twitter users have shifted their attention to another heart throbbing situation that often comes up in manga and anime, the act of gently tilting another person’s head upwards by their chin. Similar to when kabe-don was trending, Twitter users started posting images of themselves getting caught up in an ago-kui situation, but they soon realized, it looks way cuter when ago-kui is done to their pets! More cuteness ahead!

First things first, what is ago-kui? “Ago” means chin, and “kui” is an onomatopoeia of a soft creak, such as the sound created by the extension arm when you push open a window. As with kabe-don, ago-kui is an action that is commonly seen in romantic situations in anime, manga or even drama serials, when the hero is about to steal a kiss from the heroine.

Ago-kui came into the spotlight when a series of photos of Popteen model Nozomi Maeda went viral on Twitter because she looked so coy and cute in the photos.

最近は、【壁ドン】より、
【顎クイ】に萌える。

She sure looks cute, but wait… Twitter users were quick to discover that it looks even cuter when their beloved pets get the ago-kui treatment!
