Kanmoji is Simplified Emoji. Just like Simplified Chinese is the simple version of Traditional Chinese character, the simple emoji consists of only lines or strokes like Kanji. In Kanmoji, most Emoji character has its corresponding Kanmoji, and it has additional characters besides original emoji from Unicode Consortium. It has many advantages compared to the original emoji:
It's difficult to see an emoji in small pixel. Try to distinguish between a 'Face With Smile' emoji and a 'Face With Slightly Smile' emoji in 32x32 pixel. We cannot even see them, so don't talk about reading them!
We need to use emoji everywhere, so that it is understood by all the people in the world, yet we can't write them when we need to communicate or leave a message with a pencil and a paper.
Sometimes we are not connected to the internet when we are on a remote island, in a village on travel destination, and in a crisis or disaster. To use an emoji, you need to switch on your phone. Save the battery of your phone by using the offline method: pencil and paper!
Try to write an Emoji. Actually, you are not writing it, you are drawing it! An Emoji is not writable, and you will need a long time to draw an emoji character. Whereas, Kanmoji is writable, fast, and at the speed of your regular writing of an alphabet.
Try to teach Kanmoji to kids or your grandma. You will notice that they feel natural using Kanmoji because it is easier and it is a Simple Emoji. Remember, in order to learn something, especially a character, one needs to be able to read and WRITE!
Kanmoji can be used everywhere, including print, banner, offline advertising, TV, touch screen, phone or PC, apps, clothing, or on a blank paper.
Handwriting Emoji provides a more personal touch in communication. Each person has their own unique Kanmoji writing style. Yes, Kanmoji provides the Standard in Handwritten Emoji, but personal styles, like traditional writing, do exist. This will preserve our respect for each individual character.

This is Person Bowing Deeply Kanmoji. Its handwritten emoji, and yes its handwritable !
