That's moe maid for you

But "moe" anime... I'll just say Stratos 4 and stop thinking about it before my head blows up.

The only really moe character (for me) that I can think of is Tamase Miki (Muv-Luv). Now that was a 1-hit KO 2 seconds into round 1. I don't think I'll ever get to feel that way again, and my heart couldn't take it anyways

Aaand, mecha is more moe than cute girls. Uehehehehe

You could check out this cgdct page, or really, ask in the stickied recommendations thread if that's what you are seeking.

I almost forgot about "Chronicles of the Going Home Club", I think it's less popular but I enjoyed it (although I wasn't sure until around episode 4 then ended up liking the rest, the shiritori game is a highlight).

Thinking of that reminded me, "GJ Club" is also awesome.

Others on Crunchyroll that I've enjoyed:
Love Lab (it even has a story)
Yuyushiki
Gingitsune: Messenger Fox of the Gods
Cat God/Everyday Tales of a Cat God (This one might be more average but I enjoyed it)
Natsume Yujin-cho/Natsume's Book of Friends (Probably stretching it a bit but it's pretty cute sometimes, can be sad though)
Squid Girl

Hmm, there are some I really enjoyed a lot, makes it hard to really decide what is my favourite.

As of now, it's not considered a genre. If it becomes a genre then it will change, but there is no 'moe' anime. Also, because of the meaning of the word I can't see it as being used for a genre because it's a very subjective thing. Moe doesn't mean cute, nor does it mean cute girls, and it's only the west that uses moe for specifically those things.


Isn't a genre merely a means of categorizing things? It's true that "moe" can refer to an emotion, but I don't see why it can't be expanded to include a genre. The fact that people have instinctively posted responses seems to support this idea.

I think that even though moe refers to a subjective response, it can still be coalesced into a more general genre. For example, we have "thriller movies" and "sentimental novels" (both of which are legitimate genres despite being based on subjective experiences). I suppose you could argue that moe hasn't evolved to the state where it could be considered such a genre - but who determines exactly when that point arrives?

Furthermore, I would argue that the industry itself is making moe into a genre by producing shows specifically designed to evoke the feeling. While it's true that the feeling is subjective, the similarity in people's tastes tends to cause a coalescence of tropes, themes, and designs which evoke the feeling of moe in a large audience. Because of this, I would argue that these shows which appear to be designed to evoke the feeling of moe in a large audience can be considered "moe anime" - just like how a movie that attempts to evoke a frightful atmosphere might be considered a thriller or a novel that attempts to appeal to a large audience's emotions might be considered sentimental.



Just thought i'd chime in. The response wasn't directed specifically toward you though. I just wanted to come up with a response since this seems to be a common claim.

Does Sakura Trick count? I know it's yuri but still, it's so cute.

Definitely K-On!

I didn't really like any other moe anime, although K-On is one of my favorite anime. Also, if Tamako Market can be considered as moe, I liked it too

Probably Non Non Biyori for me, but YuruYuri and Love Lab were cute too

K-On! definitely! I think the first few anime I watched were Cowboy Bebop, FMAB, Elfen Lied, and then Mirai Nikki. The ending of Mirai Nikki (not the stupid OVA) made me pretty sad. So I went to google ( ), I forget what exactly I typed in, but found out I had what the internet calls "post anime depression." And it was either Crunchyroll or Yahoo answers that said to watch K-On! I watched the first episode and thought, "What is this cutesy crap? I'll probably maybe definitely not watch this series....." And before I knew it I had watched both seasons, and movie.

IDK what happened, but I <3 K-On!
