As defined by ANN,


Moe is a Japanese term used in connection with manga or anime to describe something precious, usually (but not always) the ideal of youthful and innocent femininity. Written with the kanji for "to bud or sprout" (萌), the concept covers a range of ideal behaviour for youthful female characters in manga or anime. To be moe, a character can be eager or perky, not overly independent, and call forth a desire in the viewer to protect them and nurture them. The term is also used to describe any preciously cute item; there is an animal mascot character store in Tokyo called Moe.

I think everyone already has an idea of what it actually means
so let me get straight to the point.

Hating on moe has become a really popular thing among anim00 fans lately.
I personally don't have a problem with it. K-ON! is one of my faves
and it's filled with nothing but moe goodness and good music.

What do you think, people of Shinji?
Do you like, dislike or not care about "moe"?

To feel warm and fuzzy inside or to not feel warm and fuzzy inside... Hmm, which shall I choose? Oh yeah, that's right:

MOE <3

I love Moe! I mean good Moe though, because there is nothing worse than bad Moe.

Let me answer you like this:

A-Channel 8/10
Acchi Kocchi 9/10
Chu-2 9/10
K-On both season 10/10
Shinryaku! Ika Musume 10/10
Tamako Market 9/10

Should be obvious that I like moe, right? xD


I continued on Acchi Kocchi becaus it was so damn cute, almost too much for even me :P
I'll come back to K-On again and again becaus it's so cute.
The reason I watched Tamako Market was almost only becaus of the moe.

Not liking moe is like hating on teddybears.

Highly depended on the show in my case. I love Chu-2, K-ON, Yuyushiki, and a few other shows that could be considered heavy on moe.

However I find shows like GJ-bu and Tamako Market to be some of the worst garbage in recent seasons. I think if I feel the show couldn't stand on it's own with a lot of the moe removed I pick up on that and just drop it. Actually liking the characters is another must if I watch something with a lot of moe.

Meh. Indifferent.

I liked K-on!, but never thought it was good enough to get into the fandom.

I'm into cuteness, but not moe. Too much cuteness just makes me wanna barf.

But K-on! wasn't too bad.

Moe doesn't necessarily imply cute, it's more something delicate that you'd like to protect. Which, admittedly, is usually called cute most of the time, but there are many cute things that I don't think are actually moe (aka: Dog Days).

Anyway, I've been told a frequent target of female moedom is this fine young fellow:


Someone would have to tell me if he's cute or not, as I have no idea.

For me, indifferent. Well, I am a fan of Kyoto Animation's works so I guess I like it sometimes but mostly still indifferent.

if you guys know the function of f=k

someone please tell me. my left index filled in for my right middle finger >.>

anyways, your choices of moe is pretty good. I personally would add yuru yuri, anything with the word yuri in it can't be bad.
