You’ve all probably heard of the word Kabe-don. Its what’s turning Japanese girls’ eyes into hearts all over the place. It happens when someone leans over someone else –who is against a wall– with one arm (or rarely both arms)… then DON! (The sound of something hitting a hard surface) This is what causes excitement and exhilaration.

 

How it all started…

Kabe-don is a word expressing the action of a man to suddenly stretch his arm out and hit the wall making the “don” sound. Kabe-don first started to become famous in the manga based movie “L・DK” which was in theaters April 2014.

But it wasn’t just “L・DK” that had this situation since Kabe-don was a very popular “Moe” situation among girls.

In the manga “Strobo Edge”, Ren does Kabe-don to Ninako to stop her from going home so he can hear her response to his confession of love the other day.
