So, i hope this is the right sub-forum for this question, or the right forum at all…

While reading Manga i have noticed that even characters which are not pictured as aggressive, or have similar attributes, are shown with slightly elongated canine teeth.
Why is that so?
Any psychological explanation?

I know that there is a deformation of the canine teeth which is seen as cute in japan (in girls only as far as i know), but that doesn’t seem to fit.
Could this be done to ad more details while keeping it simple (mostly two triangles on a straight line)?
