During lunch one of them pulled out his cellphone with puppets, dolls, dogs, cats, strings, and beads hanging off. He was sifting through his pictures and stopped at a cat he took a picture of, and said "Chaa kawaiii" I was like "isnt that reserved for school girls in anime?" - in my head of course.
Another instance is when they play with each other. One of them is in my Calculus class and when it was time go to, one of them just grabbed his bag and said "Chotto chotto" waving to come back and the other was like "nan da". He said "nan daaa" again then they both stood there for awhile just laughing. Then he let go and both of us took off to go to class, but as we walked away I could here them giggling saying "kawaii ne"
So yeah, i just wanted to share with everyone. Based on my observation, i dont think anime behaviour just came out of no where, I think it reflects Japanese behaviour and culture. Just like The Simpsons and The Family Guy, they are based off American behaviour and culture.

In a manga called Full Moon, a boy seems to be smelling this girl hair?Always when the male figure proclaims his fondess to some girl,they sniff their hair?
Yes, I've noticed that in a few animes. A male character saying a girl's hair smells nice with the classic drolling expression on their face.
But anime isn't how Japan is really like. And (this may just be me) but, from the one experience I've had...I'm so alone lol, girls hair does smell nice. But if you hug a girl, especially one that's shorter than you, you can't help but smell her hair (when you breath).
