Frowning Kei refers to an image of Kaguya-sama: Love is War! character Kei Shirogane frowning. The image has been used online, primarily as a part of a multi-panel format along with another frame in which Kei has a neutral facial expression.


On June 13th, episode 10 of season two of the anime series Kaguya-sama: Love is War! premiered.[1] In one scene of the episode, character Kei Shirogane is reminded of her promise not to drink juice at dinner, to which she reacts by frowning (still images shown below).

Starting on the same day, the format starting spreading in /r/animemes, with users imagining humorous dialogues between Kei and various characters.

In many examples, the meme format has been partially redrawn; for example, on June 16th, 2020, Redditor[5] Roka-Chan posted a Fate/stay night version of the meme which received over 4,500 upvotes in one day (shown below, left). On the same day, Redditor[6] KuroYatoriBoi posted a KonoSuba meme which gained over 9,800 upvotes in 12 hours (shown below, right).
