Smug Anime Face refers to a variety of reaction images featuring anime characters with a smug smile on their faces that are often used in manga and anime-related discussions.


The first known usage of the term "Smug Anime Face" can be traced to a reply post to a Greentext thread on 4chan's /v/ Video Games board on August 3, 2012, featuring the character Yozora Mikazuki from the 2011 comedy anime series Haganai, or Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai, chastising the author for his post.[1] Later that same day, another user in turn criticised the response, primarily for it's use of a generic GIF in response, featuring the term "smug anime face".[2]

I'm enjoying my Friday weekend by taking it easy, eating some food I like, eating some food that tastes good, and watching shows I like 149682765 By posting shit like "tfw no gf." "home alone on a Friday night," etc. you're not only doing nothing about the problem, but you're making it worse. You're essentially turning whining into a meme. tl dr. go fuck a corpse in the ass you memespouting cunt Anonymous Sat 04 Aug 2012 00:35:29 No.149682765 Report 149682186 >Smug anime face no. 120532.gif


Soon after the first thread, the term "smug anime face" began to appear over 4chan, as well as on other sites, with the first Smug Anime Face image thread being posted to 4chan's /a/ Anime & Manga board on May 12, 2013[3]. As well as this, there are also a Smug Anime Face Tumblr[4] and Facebook page[5], featuring images of characters from a variety of different anime series.
