Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: LastElixir on November 29, 2006, 08:35:18 PM
Ok, after some discussion with my fellow fanime board members, I think it's time for the official MOE thread for moe-related discussions. Talk about anything here, your favorite moe, your favorite girl/boy, favorite moe situations, anything goes. Traps are welcomed too.

The rules are simple!

-All posts in this thread must be moe-related.
-All posts must be kept somewhat clean. lol
-Please keep it hate-free.
-Be as geeky as you can be.
-Have fun!

New to Moe? Get some basic information Here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moe_%28slang%29)

Now Moe-it-up!

萌え萌え~

J

ps  i will be putting up some sort of a moe chart or list soon, but I don't have the time today.

Also, to all onlookers: I'd like to reiterate that this thread doesn't necessarily limit the subject matter to just girls. Guys can be moe, too. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridget_%28Guilty_Gear%29) (OK, so that's an extreme example, but guys can indeed have traits that turn you on.)

what about honey (hani) senpai from ouran? very moe imo.

Moe Lesson of the day: Moe 萌え's antonym in Japan is Nae 萎え. nae pretty much means "to lose strength" or "to become flaccid", yes, use your dirty imagination. You can scream Nae like you scream Moe whenever you see something that's totally not moe.

example:
bro 1: dude! look at that bridget cosplay dude! that's totally not bridget!
bro 2: dude thats not cool! NAE~!
bro 1: extreeeme!

Quite amazing as to how versatile moe can be.

Though I'd love to discuss the unbelievable power that imouto type characters hold; it's impossible NOT to love that archetype.

I must concur.  It's definately one of my favorite moes.

And emotionless, taciturn girls are also love.  When moe is inversely proportional to how much the character talks. XD

The quiet but honest and vaguely depressed type... moeeee~! (Shiori, Subaru, Nagato Yuki?)

On the subject of male moe, I think I'd sooner go gay for Light than for Bridget. Somehow, disguising oneself as a girl is kind of... nae...

P.S. Ashley from Trace Memory (minus the generic name) is quite moe~~.

Her expression all the time is quite cute, though my favorite is when her hair's blowing in the wind on board the boat at the beginning of the game. Sometimes she looks a little more or less childlike (she is supposed to be only 14, after all) but she looks better when she looks on the older end of her age group IMO. Though I can't imagine what she would look like if she were supposed to be about 17. It would either be even more moe~ or it would completely ruin her. Hopefully they wouldn't be compelled to make her too punk-ish. That could be pretty awesome, though, if they did a longer sequel with Ashley again.

P.S. the use of the two screens in that game is really very good, especially during the cutscenes. It has that comic-book feel of being split into panels, but it also works really well as simultaneous views in multiple angles.

Yes!  More Ashley fans.  I thought I was the only one. XD;  As an interesting aside, she also shares my birthday; albeit, seven years later.

Expect to see her as a 16-year-old in the next Another Code/Trace Memory.  At least, that's what the message at the end of the second playthrough would seem to hint at.

And as a service to the Ashley fans, her drawn by Amaduyu Tatsuki (http://tsubasa.nu/images/10.jpg).

P.S. she shares my birthday too, only 5 years later. I realized right away what great use they are putting the DS. :3

P.P.S. I was an Ashley fan before I bought the game. Matter of fact, she's the main reason I got the game in the first place.

P.P.P.S. I just realized the implications of her sharing my birthday 5 years later. She's that much younger than me. ;_;

In conjunction with the discussion we had on joints, I decided to use one combo image instead of multiple ones:
(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y138/Lisu_de_Crauder/moesexamination.jpg)

Though arguable that any could beat human...
In my opinion of special joints: no joints (i.e. invisible/floating arms)<Robot<Doll

And if we are going for guys, I would like to bring up Rinnosuke 's most moe situation (could have used the Yagokoro lab one, but decided on this one):

The Happiness! anime is pretty cheap and unspectacular.  If anything, I'm only really watching for Jun.  I'll probably play the game someday instead.

The better choices for eroge-turned-anime this season are Kanon & Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru if you ask me.  Even Yoake Mae yori Ruriiro na is a pretty ho-hum adaptation.

So, starting today, we'll be donning weekly graphics -- that is, avatars and/or sigs -- set to a specific theme. Themes will change weekly (specifically, every Monday), and are decided at random (through a dice generator) every Friday. In addition, the week will also encourage talk about that moe in this thread.

Moes are randomly selected from a list of (at the time of this writing) 82 classifications, which range from meganekko to drunken onee-sans and everything in-between. Nothing will be selected twice. The list will not be published, so we can keep everything a surprise.

Graphic subjects, or characters, will be handled on a first-come first-serve basis; claim the character before others do. Some characters will be reserved beforehand, when we roll to find out what the next theme is on Friday. You choose whether or not to participate when we update, as some moes - such as traps - are actually turn-offs to some.

So, without further ado, let me introduce the first moe:

(http://www.nagatocity.net/images/moe/67-iincho.png)
character featured is Manaka Komaki of ToHeart 2

Iincho (委員長): class representative. A position assigned to one student per class in Japanese compulsory schooling. Duties include announcing the standard bowing salutation for instructors, taking command in class-wide activities, handling print-outs of assignments, etc. Also known by its full name gakkyu iincho or its shortened version, gakkyuiin.

Charming points: authority, respectability, dependability

Commonly associated moes: meganekko, bookworm, ojou

-=-

Currently Reserved names are in Western order

Tsubasa: Manaka Komaki (ToHeart 2)
LastElixir: Mion Sonozaki (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni)
Amol: Horaki Hikari (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
Sunara: Ichijo-san (Paniponi Dash!)
Spiritsnare: Chiyo Mihama (Azumanga Daioh)
Ryu: Ayaka Yukihiro (Negima series)
Lisu: Tomoe Kashiwaba (Rozen Maiden)

Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: Lisu on December 11, 2006, 12:02:54 AM
And so it begins...
I chose Tomoe from Rozen Maiden.
The attraction is in the type on iincho that she is.  They kind that though they carry out their duties, they care little, and sometimes resent the position.
Playing in on the stoic-ness sometimes, but those not-so-thrilled types of iincho's I like.
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: Tsubasa on December 11, 2006, 12:31:54 AM
In accordance to this week's theme, lets discuss some:

Not a bad one to begin with.  It is a classic, timeless moe.  A staple in any kind of ren'ai anime/manga/game.

Iincho is generally not a particuarily notable moe for me. It has to be in conjunction with other moes to click: bookworm, ojou, tsundere, etc.  My character of the week, Komaki Manaka, is a character I've been moe-ing for a while now.  In her case, it's the doji (clumsiness), and shyness/social akwardness that gets to me. <3

Manaka is also someone I'm very fond of. Unfortunately, the moment I announced what the result was, we immediately clashed, and I had to let go of her because Tsubasa lent me the game in the first place. T_T It hasn't stopped me from featuring her in this week's banner, however.

So, this week, I've picked the ever infamous Chiyo-chan. She was actually my first anime moe, because she was incredibly cute, klutzy, and kept her innocence even when skipping grades. Combine her with Osaka and you've got one helluva duo.

I also agree that iincho by itself isn't a powerful moe. It really does need something extra to push it to 萌え‼ status.
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: Sunara Ishi on December 11, 2006, 01:01:02 AM
I normally focus on personality traits rather than status. I automatically choose Ichigo since she's my favorite iincho character. Manaka is also awesome. >.< I like Ichigo for her excentricity...

As for the category... I don't mind characters in that category but it doesn't automatically click for me. Like tsubasa, it has to be with other traits as well.

To be honest, the first thought that came to my mind when I heard "Iincho" I thought of the Buchou from Mahoraba ~Heartful Days~. Though not the traditional stand-up and class duty leader, iincho characters also have a tendency to ask protagonists and such to, in a somewhat bossy manner, do tasks such as return the class role, or mop the floors as it is "his shift". Buchou is nothing like this unless for the fact she uses that authority as a way to get Tamami into doing her deeds. But as with most iincho characters, she has a very good heart, despite her desires and somewhat bossy behavior.

So, in other words,

Buchou is a Gothically Moe representative, with given traits accordingly.

Buchou is love.

Eh... Eva-chan doesn't really fit the moeal (lol moeal. I'm using that term from now on) archetype of an iincho stance. Sure, she does have authority, but apart from that her roots could arguably make her a tsundere-power-type moreso than this. However, she doesn't have any desire to exercise any authority on her part, and moreover, I don't think she cares about any sort of duty/wishes for responsibility for her benefit. Eva's too... well... Eva-y.

Too bad Chikane Himemiya isn't actually a class president so far as I can tell. She has the right standing, she just doesn't have the duties.

As for other iincho who come to mind... Shizuru isn't actually an class president, she's a student body president (taicho) and not really my type anyway... Can't remember if they introduced a class president in Shuffle!... You know, come to think of it, pretty much none of the anime I've watched recently involve an iincho character. Oh, except Negima.

"Irregardless," although less common, is an acceptable substitute for "regardless."  At least in vernacular english.  I stand by my word usage.

I think you were taken out of context.  You can moe any character.  I doesn't fit this week's iincho theme, but this thread is free for talk about any moe, irregardless of theme.

And on the non-iincho moe note, Lenalee of D.gray-man is totally moe. =3


Sorry for being a total ass, but I think that "regardless" should do it. <3

"Irregardless," although less common, is an acceptable substitute for "regardless."  At least in vernacular english.  I stand by my word usage.

Rodo is also even though her non-human form might kinda take away from her moeness. >.< It almost feels like the combination of moetic characteristics and creepyness should be its own category...


Probably should be. People gush over Kyo (Fruits Basket). And we (well, I hope the majority of us) know what happens to him...

A bit delayed (stupid connection problems), but here it is: Pairings.

Taken: names to be revealed in the morning

Sakura/Tomoyo (Cardcaptor Sakura)
Lelouche/C.C. (Code Geass: Lelouche of the Rebellion)
Nanoha/Fate (Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha series)
Akiko/Nayuki (Kanon)

Pairings are thought to be a combination of two people that enhances one or more of one or both of the characters' moetic traits. Take the definition how you will. (This is why there's a pairing involving a male character.) Ideally, the graphic would have both characters in a pose.

(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y138/Lisu_de_Crauder/Moecardget1-Iincho.jpg)

As final synopsis goes for this moe: it is a support-card moe (don't care much for the stand alone moe, but it can add to an already favored character).

And for this week's moe: Reisen X Tewi (Touhou) is my choice. Will wait on discussion for now.

Oh yea, this specific one I do believe needs example (most likely source image like SuShi said):

I choose Mikuru and Tsuruya.

Mikuru is a very classic case of one docile character forced into a situation she's really not that familiar with. The fact that when she's around Tsuruya she gains a bit more confidence, albeit with the support of Tsuruya's actions, adds to her moeal factor by the "breaking out of character context" effect.

Then Tsuruya-san is just a likable character in general; her very happy go lucky nature is a direct contrast, forming an ideal coupling.

Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: Lisu on December 18, 2006, 08:09:47 PM
Chun, link directly to danbooru images? definitely NSFW

As for me, I think I will use almost every opportunity I can in order to use Touhou characters. Now, it might be the pixel phantom influence, but I simply like this pair.
1 rabbit is good, 2 is awesome.
Also the senior of the pair (however defined by the source). It is usually outlined as Tewi being (probably) older and the superior, yet smaller and weaker...also a midstage boss.  Reisen, on the other hand, looking older, and being a boss with the 3rd (arguable) best theme music.
Jumbling of status vs. appearances is good for this moe.
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: Tsubasa on December 18, 2006, 10:37:23 PM
There we go.  Now that's an avvy. =3  Kinda jaggedy though.  I opted for the most cross-browser compatibility and did indexed-color instead of alpha channel transparency.  For you peoples using IE, shame on you.

Anyway, my pair is Sakura and Tomoyo of Card Captor Sakura.  A perennial favorite of mine.  Sakura is the genki, innocent little girl who grows up emotionally throughout the series.  Tomoyo is the one who always stands besides her making costumes, supporting her, and just being the best friend a little girl could ever have.  Their relationship represents absolute trust, complete familiarity, and deep affection.

And perhaps there's a tinge of complexity in their relationship too.  Tomoyo loves Sakura (if you want to argue otherwise, you obviously haven't read the manga).  Sakura, being the innocent, naïve girl we all love, is completely dense to this.  Besides, her cannon love interest is Li Syaoran.  Tomoyo, being more perfect than any real person could ever be, whole-heartedly supports her Sakura-chan's relationship with Syaoran despite the obvious consequence of losing any potential for a romantic relationship with her.  But Tomoyo readily accepts this because what makes her happiest is simply seeing the one she loves happy.  I find something truly beautiful and maybe a bit sad about the whole arrangement; even though Tomoyo herself is completely fine with it.

Thus I present: Kinomoto Sakura + Daidouji Tomoyo for moe pairing week.

And as a general comment about the pairs: all are very nice.  I especially like the Nanoha + Fate and Reisen + Tewi.

I'm a bit late on this but:

My chosen pair is not a pair of maids *GASP* but of the twin sisters of Momotsuki Academy Class 1-A, Yuna and Yuma Kashiwagi. The reason is simple: although they look alike, Yuma is the outgoing, energetic one, while her sister Yuna is the more quiet, introverted type. It's all about the contrast these two have.

Hey, I was questioning if we were going to do the usual for the next moe, not because some of us aren't there for the usual picking, but more of a seasonal thing. Santa/Christmas, or just get another from the list?
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: mDuo13 on December 22, 2006, 08:36:12 PM
Hmm, a santa/holiday theme would be interesting, but most girls aren't actually santa-like all the time, so it wouldn't be a character-based me; more of a specific-artpiece moe. No matter what, we can discuss the finer points of sexy santa suits. ;)

P.S. phone conversations with fanimafia members are kind of awkward.

Since everyone's going to be busy throughout the day, I might as well post the moe.

Spiritsnare: Akiko Minase (Kanon)
Gubaba: Weda (Hale+Guu)
Sunara: Takamachi Momoko (Nanoha series)
mDuo13: Ama-san (Shuffle!)
Chun: Fumio Usui (Karin)

Ryu: Masane (Witchblade)
Amol: Julia Murai (Great Teacher Onizuka)
Richie: Hatsuho (Onegai Teacher)
Lisu: Chigusa Sakai (Shakugan no Shana)

Personally, I represent Akiko as an awesome mom, but not one who I'd actually like to screw (even though we know she'd go 'APPROVED!1!' without thinking it through first). Thus, I suppose my warped definition of MILF, going against the actual acronym, would be a mother who's so hot/cute/moe that she's F-able, but the question of whether or not you'd actually want to do it is up in the air.

As for the next drawing? I'd say we can do it during the gathering on the 30th (http://forums.fanime.com/viewtopic.php?t=6442&sid=1f24900ba0f08751b4441e285b548171)?

My internal definition of MILF is probably pretty similar, but I have to say, Akiko is so amazing that it'd be up in the air for less time than it takes her to "approve" anything!

Much like the iincho, this would be another moe that though it isn't something I would normally think of, under deeper consideration, I am able to discover more likeable aspects of a character.
For this one, which I categorize under moe-ness of being a mother more than the actual acronym, I choose Chigusa Sakai (Yuji's ever-so-wise mom) from Shakugan no Shana. Oblivious mother who gives more and better advice that those with insight of the situation. Those are the good moms, they don't need to understand, they just know.
Plus as a character alone she's still pretty moe....

As for the next drawing? I'd say we can do it during the gathering on the 30th (http://forums.fanime.com/viewtopic.php?t=6442&sid=1f24900ba0f08751b4441e285b548171)?

Umm... does that mean no 29? D:

[edit: hmm... is it ok to combine the theme with christmas? If not, I'll switch to just an image...]


1. I imagine we're doing The Usual Thing on the 29th.

2. It's fine, so long as it's your chara. ^^;

MILF is a moe I've actually been thinking about more as of recent.  I, like most other people in this tread, like Akiko.  Have for the last couple of years or so.  And then there was Lindy.  That really started the ball rolling.  Then every once in a while there were more: Yuzuhara Haruka, Hinata Aki, Kohinata Otoha, etc.  I think I can now say I'm pretty much a casual MILF fan.

Lindy Hallaoun.  Admiral in the Time Space Administration.  Captain of the warship Asura.  Mother of one Chrono Hallaoun.  And one totally gorgeous lady.  I moe. XD

Am I the only one who was surprised that Hisakawa Aya makes an amazing MILF?  I always associate her with Skuld or wacky characters who speak kansai-ben, so I didn't realize she could make that kind of voice.  She also voiced Chun's character: Fumio.

And here's Lindy & Momoko--the mothers of Nanoha:

I chose Hatsuho Kazami for the following reasons:

1. Akiko Minase was taken.
2. Weda was also taken.
3. Hot teacher has a hot mom, I'm not mincing words here.  :P
4. For some reason, the song "Stacy's Mom" is stuck in my head.

I consider them applicable MILFs.  Although Chitose was not birthed by any of them, they do assume suitable motherly rolls.

So I was just thinking about how the season's over and as something of a recap, why don't we go over our moes picks?

My top moes of Fall 2006 (in no particular order):

-Minase Nayuki (Kanon)
A favorite of mine for years now.  Kanon 2006 just brings the adorable ottori itoko back into the spotlight.

-C.C. (Code Geass)
I am likely the biggest stoic girl fan here, so C.C. should be no surprise.  She also has a twinge of sassiness, which is fun every once in a while.  And one cannot discount the Yukana factor.

-Itsukushima Takako (Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru)
The tsundere ojou seitokaichou of Otoboku.  She has a very pronounced tsun-tsun to dere-dere cycle.  Originally very prideful, strong, and antagonistic; but as the series progresses, she shows more of her demure, innocent, and dere-dere side.  Although she'd promptly deny it, she's just a naïve young girl at heart and it's adorable whenever it shows.
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: Sunara Ishi on December 31, 2006, 06:51:21 PM
Ok.

Kanon: My top favorites have always been Ayu and Shiori but Nayuki has become a contender now as well. So far, Shiori has become my fave over Ayu by a slight margin. I like Shiori's shyness and habit of speaking. Ayu is energetic and Nayuki is just downright cute with her sleepiness... and the jam.

Jigoku Shoujo Futakomori: Enma Ai has been my fave since the first season but I also reallly like Kikuri (a new character). They are adorable as a pairing. <3 Kikuri is rather mischievous but also quite ignorant due to her age.

Galaxy Angel Rune: Nano! <3 Definitely my fave here. A little eccentric but very cute behavioral patterns. She also has a very cute voice.

Code Geass: I like C.C as well. >.< I also like stoic gals and her sassiness...

Happiness!: Koyuki. She is very reserved and eccentric. Two traits that I like.

DGrayman: Linali and Rodo; my faves originally from the manga. Linali is very strong emotionally and is a nice girl. Rodo has cute outfits and is eccentric. I like her evilness. >.<

~~~
BTW, is there a category for tough girls? The ones that are emotionally tough; that will never give up despite the circumstances. I have a few fave characters from previous seasons that have that kind of emotional state.

I kinda like kemonomimi but its not my favorite theme. I think its rather cute but quite over-played. Maybe if it wasn't so overplayed, I'd like it more. o.O
I have a tendency to like characters for other reasons than just physical traits.

I'm gonna work on resizing my current avi down at some point this week... cause its a lil big. O.o

Utawarerumono had oodles of charas with animal ears, but I think that would have been to easy. Then I remembered Densha's favorite bunny girl and chose her. :3
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: Sunara Ishi on February 06, 2007, 04:44:58 PM
mmm.... true.

I didn't pick her because it was easy. I picked her because I like her and I'll have oppourtunities to pick the others another time. XP

I could've picked Zazie considering I heard that the cast all had animal ears at one time.... but I don't have any images of such. D: Gimme and I might change. XP j/k.

Post by: Lisu on February 09, 2007, 04:03:20 PM
Hmm, I meant to post about this at the back up forum, and waited. Well, as long as it's still under this moé's appreciation space and time:

Kemonomimi as itself stands in a situational position.  For those than do not dwell too much on moé, there is usually the impression that some of us go "omg cat ears! HAWT!"......of course, once you are more...err, 'educated' you are well aware that there is far more offered...yes...far more...

I myself, stand in the 'its good if it's there, but I won't care if it's not' position. In fact, I would have much rather used a picture with my character's original costume design that includes a fox-ear-shaped hat, but opted for this choice to exemplify the moe.  

Mine is  Ran Yakumo  (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y138/Lisu_de_Crauder/53d042322b5fb9a83b6f09e2d13faf5a.jpg)from Touhou.  Personally, under other conditions, would have probably chosen some one like   Reisen  (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y138/Lisu_de_Crauder/danbooru-p-115145903523090.jpg)because her ears are more interesting. I went for Ran to avoid the repeat, and mainly because for the subject as a whole, I find foxes more aesthetically appealing than rabbits. Fox being quite basic, even with the addition of her nine fox tails, she's under regular standards so-so. As for me, she's one of those characters that I just like because of her appearance but mostly for her portrayed personality. But hey, I'm satisfied on who is the sample character for  wiki's Kemonomimi  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kemonomimi)  entry.

Post by: Tsubasa on February 12, 2007, 12:02:43 AM
For this week, it's Minamoto Chikaru from Strawberry Panic!.  She's the beautiful and amiable student council president of Lulim Girls' School and the head of the Henshinbu/"Transformation Club:" a club dedicated to cosplay.  I picked her right off the bat when the moe was announced, but after thinking a bit, I realized that she herself doesn't really cosplay much.  She's a genius at costume design and seamstress work, but she usually makes outfits for the other club members: namely Remon and Kizuna.  So, in the end, it was kinda a challenge.  She does don a very nice "cosplay," during the series, but it's for a reason, so I don't count it.  And she cosplays in a santa suit, but we've done that.  I opted for her detective mini-cosplay from episode eight.  Cause she looks really cool staking out the library. :3

Strawberry Panic! is seriously underrated/unwatched.  Chikaru is, IMO, the best character in the series and one of my favoriter moes of last year.  I was certainly rooting her on in Saimoe.
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: Sunara Ishi on February 12, 2007, 01:23:29 AM
I need to finish watching Strawberry Panic. D:

Anyway...

Probably everyone knows how much Mint loves to cosplay. If its a costume, she'll put it on no matter how rediculious it is. I seriously want her collection.
I've been saving Mint for such an occasion and I picked her right as the moe was annouced. >.<

I still think the moe theme is ironic considering the same day we picked it was the day I finally got stuff for my cosplay I was planning since a year ago... -.-;; But that's irrelavant....

Cosplay, banzai!
We know we all love it. >.<

Generally, guys are not moe to me unless they're very feminine, shota, or traps. Most characters that are moetic to be are girls. Some guys may have moetic traits but I don't classify them as moe. But that's just me.

I thank Chun for not making me feel like the only Wednesday starter.
I decided under the circumstances to go with  Yuzuko Kurusu  (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y138/Lisu_de_Crauder/straight%20pictures/6fc24bf91c388837d5345fe9e198c280.jpg) from Pani Poni Dash!
....lets just say at first I would have referred her to simply as a back-up moe, but after catching up on a few episodes, nodded my head and said 'I approve'. Not to say she beats another possible character of the series, but still good in her own way.

So I had some second thoughts about my pic for this week. The problem was, even though Etna is amazingly hot, the only pictures I could get of her dressed up as a prinny were decidedly not. I considered keeping Shia a second week (the same picture works, after all) but figured it wouldn't be good to break the guidelines like that. So I got to thinking and instead came up with one that I'm so very proud of for reasons that the vast majority of you guys probably won't get.

All I'm gonna say about my new choice is the following:
(1) Monster is an amazing, amazing show, and everyone here should watch it.
(2) If you looked at my picture and said, "IT'S A TRAP!", truer words have never been spoken.

44. Himo-pan (side-tie panties)

Although I wouldn't mind himopan. Side-tie bread. I dunno how you'd pull that off.

Anyhow, given that this isn't really an easily identifiable trait (although I could be wrong), I'd say that fanart should be permitted, but if you can find a canon image, you should give it priority.

Ryu: Kasumi (Dead or Alive series)
Tsubasa: Yuki Katase (Mizuiro)
Sunara: Sion Eltnam Atlasia (Melty Blood)
Spiritsnare: Hong "China" Meiling (Touhou Project)
Lisu: Melissa Serafi (Wagamama Capriccio)
Chun: Fate Testarossa (Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha series)
Richie: Momoha Odori (Gakuen Utopia Manabi Straight!)

I like how the difficulty setting for this moe was set on a higher level.

Melissa Serafi  (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y138/Lisu_de_Crauder/straight%20pictures/m_02.jpg) from Wagamama Capriccio for Lisu's pick of the week.

I can't begin to fathom the discussion gone through that I missed, but for what I consider: It is just no good to show the whole section. Sort of like censoring (depending on what the individual considers ‘showing too much’), but in a more stylish manner- tilting and focusing your image to show what you need to, and then some. Innovation in either choosing or arrangement is key to not have yourself represented by some anonymous panties.

This is going to be another tough one. I went through all the pictures in my image folders, and not a single one showed up. A quick search on Danbooru turned up a lot of stuff I'd rather not search through to find characters I recognize...

Searching for himopan tag and the name of a character or series I like finally turned up something, though, so I claim:

Nerine of Shuffle!

It's funny, I thought Shuffle! was a pretty awful anime overall, but I keep finding myself picking characters from there because there's enough fanart of the right kind.

I'm also experimenting with alpha channel 24-bit PNG imagery this time.

Ok, decided to finally update after being lazy for the last couple of days. (actually im pretty pooped from going out and working)

Lise/Liese/Riesz (リース) - Is a princess of the Wind Kingdom of Rolante from Seiken Densetsu 3 (Secret of Mana 3). I still consider SD3 as one of the best games of all time (lined with Chrono Trigger, FF6 and the Dragon Quest and Y's series). It's a shame that it never reached the US.

Age: 16
Weapon of Choice: Spear
Specialty: Support magic with buffs and debuffs.
Moe: 120%

I always liked Riesz since the day I got my hands on the game back in 95, she was a balanced character with a cute yet courageous personality. She was the most balanced character in the game, with the right balance of agility, magic and power.

Reisz is actually considered to be one of the most popular characters in the Super Famicon era of Squaresoft, with still a fairly big cult following in Japan. Many fan pics can be found, but she now generally has a more voluptuous body compared to the original artwork where she had more of an agile lean build. Which IMHO confuses me, but I'm not hating.

Ah, the fanart effect. (See: Tifa Lockheart) Every character gets bigger boobs, on average, in fanart. Up to twice the size they were originally. I haven't determined yet whether this applies to loli characters or not. For characters that date back before loli became the craze it is now, the effect is more pronounced. I think the "loli effect" is a countering force.

Actually, you know what? I need something new, something other than the Haruhi/FSN things. I'm going to go through my anime folder and look for series I have watched, and pick.

Thinking it through, Shirley Fenette doesn't seem bad at all.

Actually, due to lack of images, and characters I don't know, I settled with...


Fate Testarossa~!

On the agenda today: Banning all of the NSFW themes from the list so then they don't come up again.

In addition to that, I'll be posting the moe as soon as we've rolled for it as to bring it in line with that SFW policy.

If you want to swap for something a bit more tactful, I'm giving you the moe ahead of time. However, a lot of us probably won't be updating until Sunday, as tomorrow's Jerry's Birthday Gathering (http://forums.fanime.com/viewtopic.php?t=6603&start=120). That's fine; the person who brought the "NSFW" stuff is due to be at said gathering.

08. Robots

Cyborgs (characters who are not wholly robotic, but are augmented by robotic/electronic implants) and stand-alone AI programs are covered in different moes.

Tsubasa: HMX-12 Multi (ToHeart)
Spiritsnare: Yumemi Hoshino/Reverie Planetarian (planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~)
Sunara: Nano-Nano Pudding (Galaxy Angel Ru~ne)
Ryu: KOS-MOS (Xenosaga)
LastElixir: Pino (Ergo Proxy)
Chun: Chachamaru (Negima!)
Richie: Mahoro Ando (Mahoromatic)
Barnes: Cold Saki (Steel Angel Kurumi)
mDuo13: Hunter Dolls (Avenger)
Gubaba: Night Tenjou (Zettai Kareshi)
Lisu: R. Dorothy Wayneright (The Big O)
Amol: Guren Mark II feat. Kallen (Code Geass)
George: "Hawt Moé Captain Picard" (Star Trek)


Also, in regards to making the board 'work-safe' for those bored enough to surf at work and/or at school: I've personally gone through the list and marked out all of the "NSFW" ones. :3

I am firmly against this.  All considered, the list of moes is almost entirely filled with innocuous content.  All but a handful or so might possibly be construed as NSFW.  But these are few and not outright raunchy, so they can still be tastefully avatared, IMO.  We must discuss this in person.

This week it's HMX-12 Multi from ToHeart.  She's a maid robot created by the Kurusugawa group and one of my favorite characters of all time.  Probably #4 on my overall character ranking.

I think at one point or another, anyone who moes will come across a robot character that they like.  I suppose many will be a bit reluctant at first to admit that they like a machine.  But hell, you watch enough anime and eventually it doesn't even matter.  I think my first robot moe was Cherry of Saber Marionette.  A couple years later, I was introduced to Multi and it has been love ever since.  Who couldn't love sweet, adorable, clumsy Multi?

And thus, Multi.

I'm going out on a limb here and picking the Hunter Dolls from Avenger.

Now, most people don't think Avenger is a great show, and I don't blame them. The hunter dolls are also not the most moe characters in the show, but...
Quote from: "Spoiler"
Nei isn't actually a doll, and Layla obviously isn't, so...

Anyway, robots are definitely not among my favorite moes, so I'm going to take this opportunity to highlight a show that I like despite its unpopularity and its flaws.

Some notes:
-Yes, more Nanoha and Fate!  Some Hayate and the potential of Rein II, Signum, and Vita. XD
-It looks like there may be an Asakura Ryouko release sometime in the future. :3
-Like I noted in the ARIA thread, I want that Alicia.
-The Asuza (IM@S) looks really nice.
-They'll have 1/8 PVCs of all the TH2 Another Days girls. XD XD XD XD XD
-Akazukin's tempting.
-That ruffle-bikini Konomi really does look nice....
-Most of the TH2 releases still disappoint me.  Is it too much to ask for a nice Sasara?

Alpha-channel transparency doesn't display right in any IE except, supposedly, in the most recent version: IE7.  I do it anyway, knowing full-out that there will be some browser incompatibility with my avvies.  Hell, I use layer masks a lot, which get completely disabled if AC-transparency isn't supported.

Oneesan.  I really like this moe.  There's just something appealing about a mature older woman who dotes on and takes care of you.

My moe for the week is Shirakawa Shizuru of Memories Off 2nd.  Although probably one of the less popular characters of the game, I have taken a liking to her.  I chose her because I like her for her oneesanish qualities; the very two mentioned above.  And I agree with her in that sometimes in life, you just need a pat on the head.

Taking it easy on the fancy-smansy avvy work this week.  I need a break from the path I've been taking with my avvies to think over what I want to do with them from this point.  And besides, getting too complicated draws attention away from the simple beauty of the head pat. :3

I was considering Alicia-san from ARIA, but I decided that better yet would be the character she seems to be based on, the timeless classic Belldandy.

Belldandy was the first anime character I fell in love with. Sometimes, when I go back to the Oh My Goddess manga, I remember exactly why I thought so, and feel that perhaps she is still the only one for me. There's no other anime character quite so attractive. Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, but her personality is so innocent and so improbably optimistic that it almost comes off as naive. She has that knowing and loving charm of an older sister, when dealing with her younger sister Skuld, and yet, she's not perfect, herself...

As for artistic choices, I decided to follow Tsu's lead and go with a little bit of minimalism here. Much as I love imitating the title logos for various anime, the picture I had of Belldandy has such excellent motion, I couldn't bear to muddy up my sig with extra, unnecessary stuff. I just added a bit of a border.
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: Lisu on March 05, 2007, 07:37:59 AM
Touhou personalities are about 90% speculation, but the fact that percentage is consistent is what really defines the characters.

In Touhou 6 Cirno (the other girl in my sig) was the only ice character.  By the next game, Letty Whiterock was introduced.
By game alone she has the attitude of "I only exist during winter, but I know it can't last forever, so I'll take it easy on you" making her an easy stage 1 boss.

As it is hard to be an onee-san without someone to onee-san on, Cirno's childness allows her to be the caring big sister figure that takes care of her and guides her.  And the fact that she not the brightest bulb from the batch helps in having the 'knowing' onee-san qualities.  And of course, the fact that she takes care of one of my favorite characters make me like her all the more.

As for sig and avi, I figure it would be more of an effort to make a plain one than use the already made ones, plus I've been waiting for a chance to use snowflake shapes...

Post by: Spiritsnare on March 05, 2007, 07:38:17 AM
Onee-san...is a really interesting moe for me. Having actually had an older sister, I know and have experienced the dynamics of a family with one.

My sister may have moved out of the house, but I still think that I just like having an older sibling around for support every now and then.

This week, I chose Minami Makimura of Comic Party, for not only does she support everyone else the way she can (being an oneesan-type character, but IIRC, not an oneesan herself), she also passed off a couple of hints about time management to Kazuki that I've partially taken to heart (because I really, really suck with said time management). Last, but not least, she's passionate about her work, and she's very optimistic.

Interestingly enough, I, too, initially marked down Alicia Florence of ARIA, before Tsubasa reminded me of Minami's existence. I felt a bit guilty for having forgotten her in the first place. ^^;

I have an older sister too.  She's two years my senior.  Perhaps because of the proximity in age, our relationship is more of equals as opposed to me depending on her.  Maybe my adoration of the oneesan type is because I never got that kind of support.

Whatever the case, I think we can all agree that moes such as oneesan, imouto, and MILF are obviously independent of real-life familial relationships.

Post by: -zoxan- on March 05, 2007, 02:04:41 PM
Onee-sans. One of my personal favorites.

I don't have an elder sister, but I do have some "cousins" (they aren't really my cousins, but I don't exactly know how we are related besides the fact that we are related) who are like onee-sans. Although they are 3 years my senior, I never depended on them, but every time I go visit them it's fun times.

This week I have chosen Nobue because she's a pretty awesome character. Although she goes to her sister for money, she does assume the responsibility of taking care of not one, but 4 girls. They don't do anything, but that in itself is such overflowing cuteness. Yeah, she smokes, she drinks, she is into fashion and what not, but there's something about her that draws me towards her. Maybe it's her sisters and friends, I wouldn't know. Whatever the case, I rike her. I'll update my avy when I get home.

(http://www.nagatocity.net/avatars/nekomatsuri.png)

I know this perhaps isn't the kind of fashion you're talking about, but hey, I couldn't resist. XD

For those who still are searching for an onee-san, there's Alicia Florence
(ARIA), Akira Ferrari (ARIA), Tamaki Kousaka (ToHeart 2), and Minagi Tohno (AIR). Also, if you're up for it, I'd say HMX-13 Serio (ToHeart) sorta counts.

edit Mizuki Takase (Comic Party) counts if you take into consideration Revolution ep. 8, where she acts as a older sister to Ikumi. However, her onee-san tendencies stick to that episode and are reusing her traits from her normal osananajimi mode.

Nako is an oneechan character that I'm quite fond of. (never mind that she's also someone else's fav... >.>; ) One of my three favorite characters from the Samurai Spirits series... she is the older sister of Rimiruru.
From what I can tell... heard... she is very kind and cares a lot for her family, village and nature...
A character I admire and whose shoes I would follow if thrown into her circumstances... I feel at times that she mimics my feelings towards nature....

She is so caring and kind... Traits I think are essential in an oneechan character. The oneechan trait is something I like on a case by case basis... I have to like the character for other reasons first. Doting is nice and all but it can't just be anyone...
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: SohmaYuki on March 06, 2007, 04:27:22 AM
Eh...

Nakoruru isn't really an oneechara at all. If you played through the PC game, there's a scene where they talk about how Rimururu feels ignored by Nakoruru because she cares more about the forest than her.

A lot of you seem to misunderstand what "moe" really is.

It's not "a character you like" or "a character type you like". It's very broad, but there is set limitations really. Like I laughed when people said "Revy" was moe, because she's not a moe-chara. Revy is a Kakkoii-chara.

Nee-chan chara is not moe either. Nee-chan chara is Nee-chan chara.

Moe-chara are like... Mii-tan, Minabi, Komugi, Minna.

The He is My Master characters aren't really... moe... but they do things that are moe moe~.

Eh, like... a completely innocent cute that can be taken as dirty... is moe. Like, moe is not only female.

It's really... too hard to explain with English, too many ideas and words that don't translate. Moe itself literally means "budding" or "burning" and it's applied to both.

Moe-chara and things that are "Moe" because you can have non-moe chara be moe. Like, Saber from Fate is not a moe-chara, but there is moe-saber things, like saber riding stuffed lion.

This is really way too hard to explain.

I don't see how that eliminates her as an oneechan. Its common practice for the imouto to feel ignored from time to time by the oneechan... That makes the doting more significient.

And I wouldn't have picked her as a oneechan if I didn't already double-check with someone that knows this moe more than I... -.-;;

Cute isn't just a cute lil loli character.... Thats just a sub-category...
Anyone can find cute traits in anyone... There are times when Revy is moe... Most of the time she is not but its there...
Like what was said before... its the burning feeling you get inside... The feeling you get when you see a character.

Being an older sister doesn't make her an onee-chara type. Samurai Spirits, you don't even see the relationship between Rimururu and Nakoruru at all. PC game is the only one where they actually have a full story for Nakoruru and Rimururu(and about the origins of Mamahaha and Konril) as well as the others in the village etc. If anything, Nakoruru is more of an okaasan type than a onee-chara type. Since she watches over everyone like an adult and guardian over an older sister.

It's a specific feeling though. It's not just "liking a character" it's very specific in its type. Revy is not a moe-chara at all. There is absolutely no way, because moe is the exact opposite of what kind of character she is. She's a kakkoii-chara, which is the opposite. Moe is a punipuni feeling as Kakkoii-chara is a "Suge, cho-kakkoii" chara. It'd be like calling Vegeta moe. Or Kenshiro moe...

Only because you're making it more complicated than it is. You seem to have taken a very specific definition of moe - a subjective word - and are now trying to hold everyone to those standards. The definition of moe that we have collectively agreed upon is much broader:

Moe is whatever makes you "burning" inside, whatever turns you on. Just because Revy has big boobs and short shorts and wields two guns doesn't mean that she's not also cute in her own way. You see, "kakoii" (cool) and "moe" are not mutually exclusive. A character can be both or neither, depending on your tastes.

I don't like your definition of moe because it seems to severely limit attractiveness to a type of character that is consistent with a norm wherein females are young, timid, and/or subordinate to males. I can't accept such an ideal, and that's why - on this board at least - moe is defined the way we have chosen it.

This is the actuallity of what it is. Misinterpretations of it were made because people didn't attempt to really understand it and just accepted whatever they were told as truth.

No... it isn't. Your basing this on what you think it is based on probably... what you read on American sites like 4chan. Kakkoii(it has two k's かっこいい) and moe-chara types ARE mutually exclusive. You can call a Moe-chara "cool" but it doesn't make them a "kakkoii-chara" type. This is why I generally don't like non-native speakers using words from other languages, especially ones that do not translate well at all. People make up their own limitations of what is and isn't, and it destroys what the word is supposed to mean and represent.

Not at all, again, you're putting your own limitationis and interpretations on words that I used instead of simply following the words I said. You don't make up your own definitions to words. By doing so, the integrity and meaning of the word is lost and it is just a cheap 2 dollar word to make you feel self-important.

But since you pulled your friends into it, I'm pretty sure I know what it means more than your friends do. Seeing that I've been using the word for the past 4 years now, and have doujinshi artists/writers as friends. Have been looking at 2ch and futaba for the past 3 years, and know the origins of all the things on yotsuba(4chan) that were taken from 2ch and completely butchered,(like how did kuma~ turn into Pedo-bear).

Who's insulting who here? Although you insulted me first, I ask you to please let this die. Please don't keep insisting that I'm wrong. You said so once... that is enough. You should know people are going to misunderstand if you reply with just a single word. I thought you were trying to insult me and my friend... I misunderstood you. I'm not going to say I'm sorry as it is as much your fault as mine... However, these insults are already in the past and now non-existant as far as I am concerned... the ripple in the river is already gone.. May we move on past this.

Why do you assume that we haven't looked at 2chan or that we don't have  such friends as well?
I never picked the word from 4chan and I refuse to touch that place...
I have always learned moe from friends, blogs and japanese sites.

Thank you. That is greatly appreciated.

Concerning the main issue at hand: You have stated your opinions and thank you for your concern. But please stop insisting that we're wrong.
We will intrepret things as we will. And I'm sorry if our intrepreting things differently insults you in some way...
We will intrepret how we will and we will have fun with it.
We will not change our opinions for your sake... such a change would destroy any enjoyment (at least for me...) as lying/being untrue to oneself is an insult to one's very core.
Even if its not what it is in japan... that doesn't mean that we have to do things that way... Words change meaning. End of story. Even its current meaning in japan isn't what it used to be...
And like we like to joke... we do things our way... IN AMERICA!

Again I thank you for your concern but to us, we're not wrong.

The current meaning in Japan is still the same actually. "MOE" is used in a slang usage that grew popular about 5 years ago. "Moe" still has it's original meanings.

But realistically, by forcefully changing the word and refusing to accept the origin of the word is rather, disrespectful to the words integrity. My roommates don't watch anime, or read manga... and even they understand the concept of "moe". Which is funny because they complain everyday when they get from class about idiot anime/manga fans in their classes trying to impress each other by misusing words(he's in a lot of Japanese courses because he needs to fulfill a requirement for international studies, despite being completely fluent in Japanese). My other friend works at a Japanese restaurant and he complains about the same stuff. It's quite funny.

Think of it like this, when you are not a fluent speaker, and a fluent speaker tells you something is incorrect, it's very arrogant and stupid of the person to reply back with "this is how I want to use it, I don't care if it's wrong".

Just imagine if a Japanese friend of yours were to say, "I really gay that girl" or something as ubsurd, because he thinks gay is a slang term for "really like" or something. Imagine if you tried to correct him and told him how it's wrong and he went, "No it's not, it's right, I know what it means"

From my experience and research, the term "moe" is a word that's very open to interpretation.  There are some general tendencies that are fairly universally accepted as moetic, but from there, people are divided on how broad you can stretch the word.  We've chosen to take an extremely broad approach to the term.  Yes, I admit, this broadening is common in the English-speaking fan community, but it does have input from those people who are completely fluent in Japanese and are participating in the Japanese community.  Although I can very well see how many can see that we, on the Fanime Forums here, have out stepped the boundaries of the term.

On the subject of Nakoruru, I will admit right now that I have not played Ano Hito kara no Okurimono.  On the other hand, I have played almost all of the SS fighting games (minus the 3D games), read up on info about the SS RPG, and have dissected official SS drama tracks that focus on Nakoruru and Rimururu.  I will say that I believe that Nakoruru can be considered an oneesan type.  Although, I see how her tendencies can make one believe she's more an okaasan type.

I don't deny that it's easilly possible for her to sorta fit in to an onee-chan type, but her character is far more okaasan type than anything else. All of the Samurai Spirits games barely had any interaction between Rimu and Nako... or even story for that matter. The drama cd's are okay, but she changes personality types a lot inbetween the different DJ Stations and what not. I'm like... the only person who hated the Ano Hito outfits for some reason.

That's why we have people calling themselves "otaku" like it's a good thing, because they really have no real base understanding of what it means.

When foreign words are adopted into another language, they don't always mean what they meant in the native language. This is precisely why おたく is not generally a complimentary term, but "otaku" (as used in America) is. In fact, words can take on different meanings even within the same language, depending on who's using them: certain very prejudicial words, when used by some people, can be terms of endearment or assertions of power; a lesbian who proudly calls herself a "dyke" is taking on a different meaning for the word than when most people use it.

The same logic is at work with "moe". もえ (or 萌え, if that's the proper kanji) is not the same as "moe". At this point, telling us "you're doing it wrong!" is useless: there was a need for a word in English, it has been approximated from a Japanese word that is similar but not the same, and it's not going to revert to meaning the exact same as the Japanese slang any time soon.

The biggest problem here is that we're dealing with the definition of a slang word, and the point of slang words is that they're not among the canon of officially-defined words. You can't look up "moe" in Webster's precisely because it exists for the specific needs of few people. Among different people, it means different things. Even slang words that appear in the dictionary can only be approximated, because slang words always have a plethora of uses, some of which fall outside the "standard" definition.

Your condescending attitude toward our use of a slang word (and our knowledge of specific characters) is not appreciated.

P.S. how about when Revy lights her cigarette off of Rock's? I thought that was a pretty sweet gesture.

I think what is also being ignored in all this foreign language -> english business is that the same thing happens in reverse. Japanese are always picking up english words and misusing them. We don't go correcting them because that is part of the culture... much like our using foreign words in such a way is part of our culture.

Sure we'd correct someone with normal speech but this isn't normal speech. This is slang... Slang doesn't follow the rules of normal speech.

This person doesn't sound condescending. It just seems that he's making a valid point in terms of cultural difference.

Moe is pretty straightforward however; as moe as in burning, emotion derived from experience. Though the original derivation of the term was an excessive cuteness of some sort, since then otaku culture has grown into broading the term to a general "Turn on" or "Movement of the Heart".

Otaku IS one of the misconcieved words of this era, and it doesn't make it any more valid even when brought to another border, since the genre and source of the word is completely limited to the single derivation; this word was not created by the English language, but from the Japanese syllabic system. Even if you do call yourself an otaku, in reality, even if you believe it to be a good thing, in the most basic aspect you're referring to yourself in a degrading connotation.

It's equivalent to saying "I'm so good at ******* I'm such a loser". Sure, you don't mean it to be negative. But in the purest sense, loser means lost, incorrect, failed. Why is it excepted? The laws of the English language support the positive meaning by sentence syntax and connotation.

We cannot say the same for "otaku", since otaku does not follow the syntactical rules of English. However, since the country is in an attempt to greater publicize and integrate words of foreign nature in terms of marketing capability, it is accepted.

But call yourself an otaku in Japan, you're usually never a good thing (Well, what with Densha Otoko's latest craze, Besides amongst other fans).

So the reasoning for the meaning is not because of its roots, but because of the feigned ignorance towards the term.

The same can be said for moe; if it is not defined in Japan as a singular feeling, but a general premise, that premise can't be contested, or shoved into single meaning.

A lot of you seem to misunderstand what "moe" really is.

It's not "a character you like" or "a character type you like". It's very broad, but there is set limitations really. Like I laughed when people said "Revy" was moe, because she's not a moe-chara. Revy is a Kakkoii-chara.

Nee-chan chara is not moe either. Nee-chan chara is Nee-chan chara.

Moe-chara are like... Mii-tan, Minabi, Komugi, Minna.

The He is My Master characters aren't really... moe... but they do things that are moe moe~.

It's really... too hard to explain with English, too many ideas and words that don't translate. Moe itself literally means "budding" or "burning" and it's applied to both.

Moe-chara and things that are "Moe" because you can have non-moe chara be moe. Like, Saber from Fate is not a moe-chara, but there is moe-saber things, like saber riding stuffed lion.

This is really way too hard to explain.


*sighs* Yeah, I figured. I wasnt sure just from the member pics thread in Things In The Universe, but now I am.

Youre CrackPr0n arent you? ~_~

Ive actually been wondering when you'd get around to creating a new account and start stirring up trouble =P

*edit* Ive read the rest of the thread, and Im even more sure now =P

To the topic at hand!

Ahh, implied lingual connotations. My specialty.

I'll try to make this short.

I have two words for you: Decolation cake. There are more examples, but that was the first one that came to mind. Its not the best example but it suits my needs well enough. The point is that words are about 60% etymology, 35% cultural requirement, and 5% circumstance. "Decolation cake" isnt native japanese...it isnt even fully grammatically correct in english. But it has been assimilated into japanese culture, and now has a viable meaning outside of its original definition.

Otaku is the same way, but in reverse. As was mentioned earlier, "american anime culture" had need for a term, and it was filled by assimilating a *similer* japanese word into english slang. I had a bunch more to say, but I seem to have forgotten it all, so I'll leave it with this:

The day nihonjin purge all misused forgein words from nihongo (there are only about 10,000 of them) then you can assault the purity of our usage of japanese slang. Im not saying its a case of "They do it to us so we're going to do it back!" Quite the opposite, actually. Im saying that this is how language works. It's a natural progression.

Post by: SohmaYuki on March 06, 2007, 06:02:04 PM
There's a huge difference with what you guys are saying.

We as outsiders understand the Japanese misusing a word, they don't. Like I gave with the example of a Japanese friend saying something totally incorrect, and trying to correct him(My other roommate has a decent grasp on English, but he misuses words and his grammar isn't so great. I correct him a lot... he tries to learn from it and use them correctly). Why do sites like engrish.com and the such exist. Because we recognize that they don't understand it and laugh at them for it. They try to use it correctly(as for the most part almost everything they say sorta makes sense, but the grammar and word choice are usually terrible) but they fail at doing so due to lack of understanding. Most of these JP people don't go "I will use this word, even though I KNOW it's wrong, but because I like it like that anyways".

That's the difference. See, otaku didn't change meanings in the states. It was misinterpretted, and instead of learning from their ignorance, people choose to turn a blind eye to it and defend their misuse of a word. Why? To sound "cooler" and "more Japanese". Despite how negative a word like "otaku is... there's a lot of problems with people that use it. My favorite is the one that takes it in the totally opposite light. I have otaku friends. Like real otaku friends. People with doujinshi collections upwards to the 5000 mark, and over 100 figuires. People that have 100+ body pillows and 1000 eroge.

By calling yourself an otaku, you give real otaku a bad name. No matter how you argue it, people will defend the otherside... because people do not want to admit weakness in themselves. If I were to say "You shouldn't call yourself otaku" people will argue that the meaning of otaku has changed, and they are anime nerds. Severity is the point, because even by that reasoning I can say confidentally that "I'm more of an otaku than most of you are". Because I am almost positive that I know the culture, the nuances etc. far better than people here. It helpsp having actual otaku friends and what not.

But if you go to the otherside of the coin, and say "You guys are just fake otaku, you don't understand how to be an otaku and are just posers. I'm a real otaku, I spend x amount of time watching anime and reading manga, and surfing these sites, and my colletion is x-big", people will get defensive and state their limitations. "Well I actually have a life, and I don't have that much money", and things like that. So isn't that hypocritical to do so?

People feel comfortable, and someone telling them they're wrong(a complete stranger) at that, is the main issue. If it was a close friend that told you "hey, you're misusing this word, it actually means this" you would not bitch back at him/her and state the things you have here.

Yay for bias. That's all this comes down to. You guys misusing a word, I tell you it is incorrect, and you fighting tooth and nail to justify the misuse... because you cannot accept a stranger telling you that you are wrong. You cannot admit to a stranger that they know more about the subject than you.

Re: Otaku:

Quote from: "SohmaYuki"
See, otaku didn't change meanings in the states. It was misinterpretted, and instead of learning from their ignorance, people choose to turn a blind eye to it and defend their misuse of a word. Why? To sound "cooler" and "more Japanese". Despite how negative a word like "otaku is... there's a lot of problems with people that use it. My favorite is the one that takes it in the totally opposite light. I have otaku friends. Like real otaku friends. People with doujinshi collections upwards to the 5000 mark, and over 100 figures. People that have 100+ body pillows and 1000 eroge.


Apparently, the definition of otaku has been accepted in Japan, and thus it goes both ways. Dunno if you're one of those guys who consider Wikipedia to be an uncredible source, but I'll cite from its article anyhow. Bolded is your position; italicized is what I speak of.

Quote from: "Wikipedia"
The term is a loanword from the Japanese language, but in the English/international sense it is used to refer specifically to a fan of anime and manga, though it can sometimes refer to any "nerd," in general. The term serves as a label not unlike the term Trekkie or fanboy. However, use of the label can be a source of contention among older or more moderate anime fans, particularly those who are aware of the negative connotations the term has within some subcultures. As in Japan, unpleasant stereotypes about otaku prevail in worldwide fan communities, and some anime fans express concern about the reputations these more extreme fans can earn their hobby (not unlike sentiments in the comic book and science fiction fandoms).

To indicate that one is talking about the Japanese definition rather than the English loanword, the spelling wotaku (ヲタク) is sometimes used. On Japanese forums such as 2channel, however, otaku (オタク) and wotaku (ヲタク) are used interchangeably, depending on the mood and personal style of the poster.

Re: Moe

Quote from: "SohmaYuki"
A lot of you seem to misunderstand what "moe" really is.

It's not "a character you like" or "a character type you like". It's very broad, but there is set limitations really.


I will accept that moe can't be defined like that. However, the character types and characters used in the thread are our representations of what traits make us (and others) feel moe as - if I remember correctly and please correct me if I'm wrong - feelings of moe depend on the audience and their tastes and preferences. For example, an oneesan chara can make the beholder feel moe.

Quote from: "SohmaYuki"
Moe is not only female.


We understand that; however, for the purposes of our little theme thing going on here, we've decided to split male moe traits into a separate section, focusing first and foremost on the female spectrum of moe.

It's a half true. Even actual otaku's get offended when people call them otaku, if it comes from a source outside of another otaku(or otaku circle). It's the same way a lot of black people get offended if you use the "N" word and you yourself are not black.

I mistrust wikipedia for words and terms that come from outside their origin. JP wiki's on otaku and moe are pretty good. I understand the basis of what a lot of other countries(not just the US) state as their "defenition of otaku" but that defenition is based on ignorance. I can't change what people will say, or how they completely think about it, but I can inform them that they are wrong or incorrect in their usage of the word.

This is half true. Moe is a rather specific feeling, and I don't doubt that some people will get that feeling from non-moe types(in the same ways that people get sexual arrousion by things like bruises, or bloody noses), but in general it isn't. This won't be the best example to use and I know this fully well before stating it, but please bare with me and try to understand the point of why I'm saying it over the literal usage of the two words, and contrary evidence to this specific example.

Sexy vs. Cute. They are two very different aspects and appeals. A girl like Yuko Ogura is very cute, as opposed to being a "sexy" girl. But on the otherside of it, a girl like Angelina Jolie doesn't have a "cute" appeal but a very sexy/seductive appeal. They are very different appeals. Cute girls can be sexy in terms of sexuallity, but the appeal is still very different. Blanket statementing it, some people perfer cute over sexy, and other guys perfer sexy over cute.

Again, I know that example is not perfect, so please don't pick at the minor details like how a girl can be both sexy and cute, but based on how they are very different appeals.

I know, and I'm trying to inform you what moe really is, as it is not so broad as some would like to believe. It'd help if I could use Japanese examples, like TsuyoKiss(the game, not the cartoon), to explain the different parts and understandings of moe.

But on the other hand it is very expansive. Ohno from Genshiken, is a moe chara, but Saki is not.

G'aaaaah.. it's really frustrating because it's seriously sooooooo hard to explain this. I really hope that what I've said helped, because it's a very common misconception by people of what moe is. It's easy to here a few details and to think that it's a broad idea(the same way that happened with otaku and other words).

I am very interested in JP culture, and I like knowing what things are. If I misuse words, I want my friends to correct me. So I don't really get(I understand why... but...) when people feel so offended when they get corrected about something that they only think they know about by someone who does know about it.

I'm not saying all of you are doing that, because a lot of people are actually presenting reasonable thoughts and replies as to question the reality of the subject, which I find commendable(even if they are skeptical about what I have to say).

I mean, shouldn't you be trying to understand the culture you love more, instead of forcibly saying that you don't care about it and continue to misuse things that come from that culture?

Anyway, back on our weekly topic:

I was thinking that Mai from My-HiME was also sort of a great moe oneesan. She takes great care of her younger brother despite his weak constitution and their deceased parents, and Mikoto looks up to her as sort of an older sister figure as well. She cooks, she's responsible, and she's quite cute. I love how expressive her face is (http://mduo13.com/hotlink/mai_avatars/). (Okay, there was a period when I first started watching My-HiME during which I was borderline-obsessed with Mai and also quite enamored of MPC's screenshot feature.)

You guys got any other great onee-sans?

Hmm, unfortunately (or not?) I missed the live discussion on this...
I won't pick on the points made because I'd rather not, and I think Yuki's last post ended in a rather nice note that'd I'd leave it as it is. I will simply point out what interested me.

I think you should give more credit to your sexy vs. cute argument. Clear distinctions of the two standards could further explain for people with different environment-defined terms (what you know based on what you have been taught).

As non-aggressive as I would like to put it: "what would you call this then?" of course, that sounds like taking an offensive position. I am merely curios on your input of what we could call something like this thread other than the blunt stating of 'weekly appreciation of things we like in some girls'.  Just honest curiosity.

For the most part, the expansion of perspective in moe is always appreciated, not so much the otaku one, as I can't really remember when the discussion....or use of the word for that matter...came up with this specific group. I think those points are for copying (not saying saving because that'd be aimed at you, copying is for the other board member to have) and using on the people who really need them.

Be aggressive, I honestly don't care. I care more about the hypocrisy that was involved in some of the replies. As long as a point is delivered, I personally don't care how it's delivered. Anyways...

This thread has jumped subject matters. At first it started as moe, then became favorite character type, then became... favorite character of each type.

So the latest of the discussions title would be "Favorite character type".

Oh, I brought up the word as an example of another word that people misuse regularly and instead of acknowledging misuse, defend their right to misuse it.

I'm not one to be offended, so you don't need to be politically correct, or even nice to me. Just say what you want to say, it's easier that way(not an attack or anything, I'm just stating it in general).

Its not that I outright disagree with you. I do agree with you...to a point. Which is why I dont use a lot of words like otaku. But we're looking at the word(s?) from two different perspectives. Ive thought of a better way to state my point, though.

Otaku, in the context in use for this discussion, is no longer a japanese word. It is now an english slang. Yes, it is spelled and pronounced the same as a japanese word. Yes, it has a similer meaning. Yes, its origins can be traced to the aformentioned japanese word. But it has been assimilated into the culture of the american anime fan scene. This is the nature of language in general, and english in particular.

It only exists in the "american anime fan scene" as a misinterpretation that people don't realize exists. Half the people that use the word otaku do not say it is "an American adopted slang word" they say it's a Japanese word that means nerd or geek.

Which is a show of their ignorance on the subject of the matter. People only switch to the "Well language changes and English adopted the word" arguement AFTER they have been shown that otaku doesn't mean what they think it does in Japanese. They don't even care about the truth or the realistic point of the arguement, they only care about winning the arguement and defending their right to use the word.

After knowing the truth of the word, why would you want to honestly use it still? I have yet to here a real answer on the subject. People don't really understand word origins and what not and why they exist and how they got to what they are now(including slang). Words like "geek" and "nerd" started off as an insult *OUT OF JEALOUSY*. Dumber(for lack of a better word) kids called smarter kids geeks and nerds as an insult because they weren't as smart.

Otaku wasn't made out of jealousy, it was used as a realistic description. Basic understanding of the word. There are other reasons, but this is the most common and accepted.

otaku translates to "house". To be an "otaku" it means that you live your house because your hobby exists there. You'd rather spend time with your hobby than anything else, and that is the most important thing to you. Sure, you go to work, or school, because you have to do these things... but any actual time you can freely choose what to do, you spend with your hobby.

Why do people in the US use it at all though? Because, *it's Japanese*. It's the same reason why people obsess over pocky. You can give me all these bullshit reasons like "well it tastes good and it's cheap" but we all know those are facades. The real reason is because it is Japanese and publicized to be Japanese. I've been eating Pocky ever since I moved to California when I was 3. So I think it's quite stupid for people to make such a big deal out of it, because in the end, it's just a crappy cheap food snack.

So people learn the origins of otaku, and then they try to make up reasons so they "don't look wrong". They feel as if they're being attacked when someone tells them that "you know, otaku is a bad thing to call yourself"(and I know I don't make it any less of an attack when *I* say it the way I do). So instead of being realistic and learning, or accepting truth, they argue and find any loop whole or excuse they can to justify the use of the word.

I'm not completely fluent in Japanese, but I know a good amount, and I choose not to use it unless it's for actual practice with my Japanese friends who can help me improve, or when the person does not speak English and I am trying to communicate the best I can with them. Almost all of my friends have said something about this to me, about how they're glad about it, because I don't pretend to be Japanese, because it's annoying to them to hear random people spouting out random Japanese words whenever they can. Your average anime fan knows about 5 words of Japanese over the basic words that most people have heard(like... sushi... or sashimi).

Baka
Kawaii
Neko
Hai
Sugoi

Sure there's some words that can be added to that list, but that's the general 5 that most anime fans know. It's rather irritating to Japanese speakers(and even to myself) when they choose to use those 5 words whenever they can. "He's so kawaii". THere's no reason for you to say kawaii other than to think you're cool by using one of the 5 Japanese words you know. It's even worse when they don't understand phoenetics. I hear so many variations of it like "He's so KAH WAI" or "He's so Kuh wai ee"(which sounds more like 怖い). About 5 years ago I'd used to go up to people that I overheard saying stuff like that, and start speaking to them in Japanese. They would look at me weird, and then say something like "Oh I don't know Japanese". So I'd say "then why the f__k are you saying 可愛い for, and mispronouncing it horribly at that?" Of course they'd get pissed off at started shouting nonsense at me like "IT DOESN'T MATTER DOES IT? I WILL SAY WHATEVER THE HELL I WANT!" Which I found so ironic.

To me, if you're going to say you like Japanese culture, and that you support things like anime and manga, the least you can do is respect the culture and the language. Using Japanese whenever you get the chance is in a sense making fun of the culture. Arguing that you have a right to use a word however you want to, is also looking down upon the culture and its history. I like Japanese culture, not just the anime, and the manga, and the fandom stuff like that. It irritates me when I see others doing things like this, and I'm not even Japanese. Almost all of my Japanese friends rant about it all the time, and even teachers that are JP have talked to me about it before and how they don't like how some people act like they are, or know all about Japanese culture because they watch anime or read manga.

As an outsider that is interested in the culture, the least we should be is respectful to the culture.

EDIT: oh I completely forgot about this until just now. Last night a friend of mine and the conversation led to Okinawa. She loves Okinawa, as she surfs, and she loves the food and landscape and everything there. But she was reading this forum about how someone wanted to go to Okinawa to play with the cats and eat "the legendary sata andagi" because he's seen azumanga daioh. He stated that he wanted to buy some and just shout "SATA ANDAGI!" over and over again with his friends. She felt offended and just appaulled at how stupid he was acting. That guy is just cheapening Okinawa by assuming it is rolled up into a convenient ball of playing with cats(that are super endangered, only a few hundred of them left... at best) and eating fried sweet bread.

Japanese people are very polite and will not tell you that you offend them at all. So even if you ask them, very few of them will ever tell you that they're offended or that something is offensive.

To quell all the "English-adopted" remarks: I did a bit of research, and apparently, Dictionary.com (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/otaku) turns up an entry for otaku in Webster's New Millenium Dictionary of English. However, the definition covered is not the 'fan scene' one -- e.g. I'm a casual fan, and I do have a life -- but the original Japanese: e.g. I'm a hikikomori who humps dakimakura*.

Take that as you will.

Ummm, aheheh... returning to the point!

Actually, only slightly related...

...I'm trying to write a song that generally hints at the facets of Moé, the ups and downs, the controversial bits, the healthy and unhealthy. Or, in plainer English, I'm exploring it as a whole, not just the good or the bad. Are there some things I should generally know about the whole Moé idea that would make their exclusion a faux pau (sp?)? I know a FEW things about it, such as:

*It's been defined as the "warm feelings" one gets for a 2-dimensional (or otherwise human-generated) character that is not directly, flesh-based of this world. (I.E, Captain Kirk would be the moé in question; William Shatner would not. Thanks to gmontem for the inspiration of this example)
*There are 22,XXX variations (somewhere in the 22 thousands) of moé, with some FAR more prominent than others.
*Some moé are exclusive to "one per character"; others, combos of 3-5 are common (consider Mikuru-chan; maid, glasses (sometimes), bunny suit, innocence... a veritable moé chameleon)

Anything I should know that would make the song more complete?

Ive already established that I dont use the word otaku (or many other japanese words, for that matter) "correctly" or otherwise, and that I already knew the "real" meaning before this conversation even started...so I dont see how my using the "Well language changes and English adopted the word" argument was a result of suddenly learning "that otaku doesn't mean what they think it does in Japanese."


As for your friend and the mystery poster...I dont really think she's being quite fair. Now, I didnt read this guy's post, nor was I privvy to your conversation with your friend, but I dont think its fair to say that this guy thinks that the only good things about Okinawa are sata andagi and iriomote. Thats "why" he wants to go. Thats what piqued his interest and sparked the desire. That doesnt necessarily mean thats the only thing he's interested. And even if it did, that doesnt mean that he wouldnt appreciate anything else once he got there.

I would very much like to visit Japan. When people ask me why, I genereally tell them I want to eat taiyaki and authentic ramen, and spend some quality time in Akihabara.

Does this mean that I dont give a crap about anything else? The hell it does! Ive seen a lot of pictures, and I think Japan is a beautiful country. I want to see the mountains and the forests. I want to see the shrines and the city lights. I would very much like to see some no or kabuki (yes, even if I cant fully understand them =P) But guess what? I like to eat and watch anime and play video games. I want to go to akihabara and eat some god damn taiyaki.

But that doesnt mean Im not interested in anything else, and it CERTAINLY doesnt mean Im unable to appreciate it.

Simple, because you feel that you have to look out for the majority, and the community. It isn't about feeling attacked, but you feel your community is being attacked, so the reasoning is the same. I could easilly point at something else and make the same claim. HI, WHY IS YOUR NICK "SUPERKAWAIINEKO", it's retarded to use Japanese for no reason. Does the shift point change anything? Not at all, because to you it wasn't about the individual. You would retort no matter what, or who i pointed out as being something that shouldn't be done, because you believe I have no right to say any of this, nor anything at all, because I am an outsider of this community. Therefore I should not say anything that could be seen in a negative light.

I can get authentic Ramen in the states. I know quite a few really good ramen places in California, New York, and Seattle. But question... what kind of ramen? Ramen varries according to region... So authentic Ramen varries according to where you go.

Taiyaki... you can get at almost any Japanese bakery, and a lot of restaurants. It's not a complicated thing to make you know.

Regardless if you want to see other things, regardless if you will appreciate other things. The reasonings you are giving, are the reasonings that you give to represent what you want to see in that trip, which represents what you want to see in that culture. By stating, taiyaki, and ramen... you are stating that the most important reasons for you to go are... a common piece pastry, and a low budget food that people eat because it's quick/cheap/and abundant. Akihbara is a legit destination point, but everything else you said cheapens the worth of the culture.

It's the equivalent to "I want to go to America to eat donuts, and fried chicken".

Uhh, I was just trying to make a double-whammie: First one, distinguishing a character from an actor/actress (moé is warm feelings for a character, in most cases, or so I understand... my grasp is very weak on it, thus my usual avoidance of addressing it all too often); the other, to make a joking reference to gmontem's avatar.

I suppose now isn't a good time to be asking questions about moé either, I'd prefer not to stir up the pot right now. (Good gravy, there seems to be a LOT of dissent in the boards these days...)

That's a contradiction of sorts. If something is moe to the "true otaku", they find that touching it with their own fingers would be to desecrate it in cases.

Sometimes when something is moe, it should be, and is regarded as, untouchable. This is another connotation, and also why these guys don't feel up the maids in the cafes of Akihabara.

I called Chiyo but then Spirit wanted it, so I called Alice but then, I don't know what happened and I called Ed, so Alice was free and Spirit dumped Chiyo and took Alice and LastElixir said that he doesn't want me to have Alice in the first place.

Oh, and Mei is chock-full of <3

Kobayashi Hatoko.  Age 5.  Kindergardener at Eriol Academy; Usagi-gumi.  She's also a top-class Deus at the game Angelic Layer and the incumbent Kanto champion.  Her angel is Suzuka, which generally downs opponents in all but a few seconds.

She's a tad precocious, but still childish from time to time.  And dude, she's voiced by Shiratori Yuri. <3

And here I was worried that one I would want would be taken.
Mireille from .hack//Legend of the Twilight Bracelet (DUSK or which ever name you use). 4 years old, IQ of 200, rare item hunter. What's not to love?

But to other matters...I would have totally jumped on......I mean, picked, Patchy...but I'm afraid that 100 doesn't constitute a child.  The closest thing would have been Chiyuri: 15 years old, college graduate...but that's rather average in that world.....

Been one. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_dirty_words) Still is. Hell, it's at the top of the list.

And yeah, I concur with Ryu. Seeing other people acting without tact means nothing. You still have the power to control your own behavior, and if you choose to follow them, you're stooping down to their level.

Post by: SuperKawaiiNeko on March 14, 2007, 02:03:59 AM
Its not a question of tact, its a question of fair. Ryu lights up on me for decreasingly potent crap (is crap not acceptable now, too?) and yet he doesnt say a word to anyone else. Now, Im not saying Ryu isnt allowed to have emotions or opinions, but when you break out the mod stick you need to be as fair as possible. If he's got some mystery beef with me or something, Ive got no problem with that. He's full allowed. But its bad form to let it effect his moderation duties. You cant come down on someone because you dont like the individual or what theyre saying. Thats abuse of power.

Ryu: If you have some beef with me or something like that, its cool. We havent always seen eye to eye, but we've always been able to work it out eventually. If this is the case, shoot me a pm and we'll talk. Or not. Thats cool too.

This is now way off topic. I say we consider this incident squashed. If anyone has anything to say about it, please tell me in a PM. Lets not defile the moe with this negativity, yeah?


Anyway. Spirit. Thanks a ton, man XD And of course there are better images out there, but find me one that is suitable for such a small avatar without any editing or resizing whatsoever. I think I did a pretty good job =P

Time to talk about the moe and my selection: XD

Hotaru is the main character's best friend in Gakuen Alice. They went to the same school and she was selected to go to another school because of her abilities. She is basically a genius as she invents all kinds of new, interesting devices. Even at the new school, where everyone has special abilities, she stands above the rest and has special status because she is just that skilled.

Concerning the moe theme:
Considering how the theme is approached, the selection of characters can be very narrow or not so much... I like this theme as there is something really respectable and enjoyable of a character that is so skilled at an early age. How a character is skilled differs from character to character but they are always more skilled than an ordinary child would be. I think seeing such children is rather nice and inspiring.

Its moe themes that we pick randomly each week.

Those participating pick a character that fits the theme we choose and we create an avatar or sig image for said character. For example, this week's theme is gothic lolita so you would pick a character that wears gothic lolita wear in an anime, manga or game series.
Other times, it might be a type of character (imouto, oneechan, etc.) or a type of personality (stoic, tsundere, etc.)

Wreathlit Noel from Yoakena this week.  The game has been slowly invading my life.  Perhaps a week ago or so, after I bought an artbook on the game, I noticed that I was also using a keychain and cellphone strap of the series. ^^;

Wreath is a cute character and she got an 85 on Lisu's gosurori scale.  That's pretty respectable. XD

As for the moe itself, I can't say I'm a huge fan, but I do enjoy it often enough.  It's probably one of my favoriter outfit preferences.

Avvy might change a bit throughout the week.  If I'm not too lazy. XD;

Ha, I laugh at my head stabbing.

Cossette for this week.  Any particularly reason.......well she is gothic-y and loli....and that is it.  That is, for the most part, her only defining factor.  Frankly, I liked the series, her attire is not as adorned as my tastes would prefer, but plain, or as the maid meeting brought up "unconvoluted", is also good in its own way.  More on the dark and somber side of this week's batch, she receives 89 gosurori points.

D: she deserves more points than thaat

though sure her tastes are lolita and rocco-esque shes a first lolita-chan to have her own series to her D: and thoes awesome styles

personally shes an icon :3. and her attire is much too adorible, though simple it is quite lolita. not all brands are frills, ribbons and lace look at Angelic Pretty for example :d or other brands

I originally wanted to use D-myo's artwork from her DJMax submission for Oblivion's video... but I don't know if that constitutes as a gothic lolita character. Nonetheless, I love Anju. ><

But yeah-- there's plenty of gothic lolita in anime, but some of the characters I've heard suggested, so far, don't seem gothic lolita to me... I don't mean to sound bitchy, but gothic lolita is a style of attire-- not attitude, or just simply being gothic, or lolita.

I don't want to make myself seem that I'm asking you to change your choices, but characters like NANA, in my opinion, aren't gosuloli. She seems more PUNK or visual-kei to me-- NOT gothic lolita.

I mean, I guess there's always Rozen Maiden, Strawberry Panic, some of Futakoi (maybe), Pure Pure, Tsukuyomi Moon Phase, Melty Blood (Len, at least.), GOTHIC ~Age of Innocence~ and more. ...

Strawberry Panic! would be stretching it.  I think the only thing that might be gosurorish in the series would be the Miator uniform and well, it isn't really.  Futakoi is pushing it unless you're talking about that brief stint of the Sakurazaki twins as the masked gosuroris in Alternative, which, while enjoyable, I don't really count as part of the overall Futakoi continuity (it's really an alternate universe spinoff if anything).

Pure Pure and GOTHIC are interesting suggestions.  I might be the only other one who knows what they are off the top of my head though. XD;

Ahh~ I suppose you're right with the stretching it with SP and Futakoi Alternative. I was trying to cite examples of gosurori being used in anime-- I wasn't thinking about the entire series anymore, huh? XD; Hmm... I think some characters in Venus Versus Virus would work, but the series is relatively new so I don't see enough images of them.

As for GOTHIC and Pure Pure? I haven't been on the boards, long enough, but I'm sure an amount of people would recognize the titles-- especially Pure Pure. The CGs are all over the net, and it's pretty famous. D:

But then again, I see people using the pictures without knowing the source...  but still a well-known game, nonetheless!

I was also going to cite this action-based game made by NITRO+, but I realized it was just filled with maids. XD; If maids count, I guess He Is My Master! and things like that would work?

Although Ren's clothing is like gothic loli, its not the best out there.
There's also Gretel from Black Lagoon but her outfit is about on the same level as Ren's.

Nana Osaki from Nana has stuff that's borderline goth loli but there isn't pictures of those things... >.>;

Rodo from DGrayman has stuff thats kinda punk goth loli...

I choose C.C from Code Geass because she wears a really nice goth loli dress and hat in the series. I <3 that outfit.

Although Venus versus virus has some nice outfits, I'm not too fond of the characters yet and I'd rather not avi someone I don't partically care for.

She also sleeps a lot. She tends to sleepwalk to school while playing an instrument (I think its called a xyllophone or something?).
She basically walks as fast as she plays (not very fast.)

Lisu: Kaguya Houraisan (Touhou Project)
Sunara: Miyu (Vampire Princess Miyu)
Spiritsnare: Ana Coppola (Ichigo Mashimaro)

Some people advocate that ideally, the character has to be constantly in wafuku, but if you can find a canon image of someone who's just, by chance, in wafuku, you can go with that. (I did.)

Philia Philis from Tales of Destiny.  My favorite character from one of my favorite RPGs.  She's a kind and mild-mannered apprentice priestess and science-y research freak.  And counter to what associations one might make about priests in RPGs, she is the heavy nuker for the party, not the healer.

I'm not touching that subject.  Yandere....it's worse than trap...
But anywho, moe: braids....from where I stand, I find it appealing that an artist takes the time to make the braid rather than giving the character just tails (noted when surfing trough some pictures in random folders). Personally, I like 'em long and skinny as opposed short and fat (I still laugh at the statement)

Aika came to mind about .5 seconds after hearing the theme, I like her personally as an all-round character, but I do in fact like the hairstyle. I do not have any background from the NATURAL so I don't know if I like short haired Aika more, so I'm sticking with my braids.

Presenting Kinoshita Rumi of the Pia Carrot e Youkoso series.  It's hard to classify her exactly to one game cause she is a reoccurring character in the series.

In Pia Carrot 1, she has an ending, but technically she's not a winnable character.  She constituted the bad ending.  Why?  Cause she was the player character's sister.  A few years later, enter Pia Carrot 2.  The player character from Pia 1 returns as the owner of the 2nd Pia Carrot store.  The player now plays another guy, so Rumi becomes a winnable character with, IMO, a cute story.  In the newest installment of the series, Pia Carrot G.O., Rumi makes yet another appearance.  This time, as the owner of the 5th store and is yet again, a winnable character.

I had originally planned to use Aizawa Tomomi, who was a winnable character in the 2nd and 3rd games, but, on second thought, if we're talking Pia Carrot, it has to be Rumi for me.  I've liked her since the 1st game, when she was just a little spunky 12-year-old who liked cosplay.  Pia 2 saw her mature to a spirited young lady and that was good too.  Now that she's the owner of the 5th store, she is still awesome.  A tenchou is fine too. :3

The initial people on the list (usually Tsubasa, Sunara, Lisu, Jay, Amol (zoxan/Appu), Ryu, George and I; and when they're here and not at college, mDuo13 and Chun) hang out on Friday nights (which used to be a secret thing but casually emerged into consciousness).

We roll randomly for a moetic trait from a list of 90 such traits. Because we're there, we're greedy, and we know what the moe is, we usually go "I GET THIS CHARACTER."

It may be unfair, but one who's at the Friday night hangouts has access to 1) the list of traits and 2) a 'first pick' for someone who matches...as long as no one else claims his/her target first.

To be fair, we start on Monday, usually after people have a chance to choose their object of affection on Sunday. I've been increasingly irresponsible about posting the new themes every week, though. XD

It may be unfair, but one who's at the Friday night hangouts has access to 1) the list of traits and 2) a 'first pick' for someone who matches...as long as no one else claims his/her target first.

To be fair, we start on Monday, usually after people have a chance to choose their object of affection on Sunday. I've been increasingly irresponsible about posting the new themes every week, though. XD

.  
Alright thanks, just wondering.  I know it is a little unfair but I am not really a regular, so it is alright

ehhh I have to disagree, I think it IS fair. It's fair because of these simple reasons:

1. We started this event, it was all our ideas put together, including the list. The sole purpose was just to have fun.
2. If people really want fairness, that means spirit or someone else have to pick the topic on a Sunday when everyone else is not there, which defeats the whole purpose. My main enjoyment out of this whole moe thing are the discussions we have prior of picking the characters, the struggle we have saying "ohhhhgg who is there to pick?"
3. Before all of this, its NOT that serious because... it's a stupid little event started just for fun, nothing more nothing less.

Update for next: another trait that sounds good at first glance and then when it really comes down to it, you can't find any good bishoujo for it.

5. "Eyeless"
Refers to girls with long hair that covers one or both of their eyes.

Tsubasa: Tear Grants (Tales of the Abyss)
Ryu: Nodoka Miyazaki (Negima!)
LastElixir: Lily (Galaxy Angel)
Sunara: Nagi (Peace@Pieces)

Sunara, I apologize in advance if you actually did call one out that night - I didn't catch it. XD

Ah, I thank Sunara for allowing me to take Nagi kind of again. On the count that I did nothing for her in the previous moe, I decided to not waste her (that, and I don't find the waitress part as appealing as the hair style)
By Ito Noizi art, sometimes she is illustrated with, even though the hair covering an eye, using the technique of almost completely showing through. Some more than others (as though not much, I would have liked to use this  (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y138/Lisu_de_Crauder/straight%20pictures/e2b7856b356c6f94008d1977a9c1e4a4.jpg), but chose the full cover)

The covering of the eye does so much for a character, extraordinarily so if that said eye is not often revealed. It ads an air of mystery to the character that makes them all the more intriguing. In this case......I just think it looks cool.

hehe... my fun, fun... avi. Whats so fun about it? I'll leave you to figure out. >.~

Zazie is my favorite of the negima series and one of my most favorite characters in this colored hair category... I've like many characters in this category... White, silver and pale blue/purple tend to be hair colors I prefer.

Other noteable characters in this category (for me) would be: Blue Soldier (toward the terra), killua (hunter x hunter), Hansel & Gretel (black lagoon), Ilya (fate/stay night), Ginko (Mushishi), and other various characters throughout the years...

As for Zazie herself, other than looking cool... she seems rather eccentric, mysterious, playful, and perhaps a bit stoic.

My second choice being White Len from Melty Blood.

And as an aside, some sample clips of the main roles were released just today, which you can download from the respective VisualNews Gemot thread (http://forums.visualnews.net/showthread.php?t=8030). Also, cp'd cast list:

rin: tamiya tomoe
komari: yanase natsumi

kudo: kaneko akemii
mio: arai yuumi
yui: tanaka ryouko

kyousuke: midorikawa hikaru
makoto: arai yuuji
kengo: oda yuusei

As for the voices themselves, I can't help but compare them to existing characters.

Komarin: Feels very Nayuki-ish. This is a good thing and further cements her into my must-play-arc list. :3
Yuiko: Tama-nee with a slight edge. Love it.
Kyousuke: LITTLE BUSTERS SAIKOU WAHOOOOOOOOOOO
Rin: Agreed with Misu: she sounds like Shana, and the last voice sample wins.
Mio: Hi, Minagi Tohno. It's been a while.
Kudo: AMAGAD, YOU HAVE A CHISA VOICE?! AND THE DESU TO GO WITH IT?! *squeals*
Haruka: ...why do I get Eimi vibes from her? She's probably not tsundere like she is (as that seems like Rin's job), but I can't help but get that aura from her voice. I need to hear more.

I lend my theory! *ahem*

There are ways to get at least busts like those. Just ask any really good Crossplayer. As for figure, as well as a large number of things, we're assuming that Mizuho was somewhat effeminate in terms of build and body before he was made to look... as... HE... does. In such a case, he's probably not got the thickest waist, and could do some modifications with a sort of cloth... corset or something...

Push comes to shove, it's just the artist not being able to draw d00ds very well, or wanting to do away with realism in that sense. Artistic suspension of disbelief and such.

GAWR. So hard to accept that such woman-ness has additional equipment. X_x
I've never been so close to a moé and it has to be a MAN. Good grief.

"Maaryan" is the generally accepted romanization for "まーりゃん."  Although some people have taken a liking to using "Marianne," probably because of bluemist.  Her full name is never given in-game or in any official material, as far as I know.

Might be because I played the Cadenza Machine at an extent, but I've gone though Tsukihime Ciel's Path.

It was kind of a strange feeling too. I really could care less for Ciel, but supposedly it finishes the "Close side of the moon" arcs, which it did.

an pseudo-angel and Shinji's Mom to boot. Gitta Love Cloning.

She has the power to end the world and give you one mind-*censored* at the time. Watch End of Eva to find out. :P

07. Stoic Girls
Defined as showing no emotion, regardless of whether or not emotions are actually present.

Tsubasa: Ruri Hoshino (Martian Successor Nadesico)
Sunara: Ren (Tsukihime/Melty Blood)
Ryu: Rei Ayanami (Neon Genesis Evangelion)
LastElixir: Vanilla H (Galaxy Angel)
Jun: Lucy Maria Misora/Ruuko Kireinosora (ToHeart 2)
mDuo13: Reverie "Ren" Metherlance (Elemental Gelade)

Ugh, damn you Sunara. Len is like... my favorite of all-time. ><

MY FAVORITE MOE~ I ALWAYS GO AFTER THESE GIRLS! YESSS...

Typically, I'd pick Primula... but I'm going to go with Ruu from To Heart 2. Ruu~!

Post by: mDuo13 on June 04, 2007, 02:55:11 PM
Primula's a good choice, but I feel like I've over-repped Shuffle as it is, so I'm considering taking Ren (Reverie Metherlance) from Elemental Gelade, if she counts. She doesn't have much emotion early on in the series, though later on it comes out a little. Then again, a lot of these girls who have no emotion do have a little something stored away somewhere.

Post by: Tsubasa on June 04, 2007, 09:46:35 PM
I haven't been saying a lot about the last few moes.  Hell, I missed the last one or two.  But I have to say something about stoic girls cause it's what I consider my favorite character type.

And when talking stoic girls, I have to chose Hoshino Ruri of Nadesico.  She was the one who got me started on them.  It's impossible to have a serious discussion about stoic girls and not mention Ruri.  As far as I've ascertained, the character type more or less began with Rei of Eva and Ruri of Nadesico.  And Ruri is considered one of the most popular anime characters in Japan ever.

What drew me to Ruri?  Perhaps it's her constant disinterested expression.  Maybe it's her deadpan delivery of "baka baka."  Per chance it's her, IMO, absolutely beautiful character design.  It's a whole slew of things.  Everything that makes her her because I love every aspect about her.

After Ruri, there has been others: Yakumo (Sukuran), Yuki (Haruhi), Kirika (Noir), Presea (Tales of Symphonia), Hisui (Tsukihime), Ren (Tsukihime), Aruru (Utawarerumono), Kisaragi (Happy Lesson), Wilhelmina (Shana), Tabitha (Zero no Tsukaima), Patchouli (Touhou), Emeralda (Xenogears), etc.  The list goes on.  But as far as I'm concerned, I began with and it is still all about Ruri.

I'm bringing my most famous avvy back from retirement.  It is, to this day, probably my favorite avatar of all time.

I rewatched like 1-3 of nadesico yesterday, I totally forgot how Euphemia sounds very much like Ruri. After 10 so years of it's original airing, Nadesico doesn't feel too old, it still has some great animation and character designs. I might as well rewatch the whole again, it's been 10 freakin years since I watched this series lol.

So I've finally changed my sig. We're more than halfway through the week and all, but eh, it's the first time I've changed it since... well, quite some time ago.

Ren is an interesting character because she starts out being totally unable to express her emotions, but over the course of time, she learns how to interact with others and becomes more open with herself, so that by the end of the series, she's still quiet but she's not exactly stoic any more. Aside from the fact that she's adorable, this character development is really the thing that makes her appealing.

So I might be fudging a bit on this week's topic, but it's just that I recently came by a great scan of her, and none of the stoic characters Tsubasa mentioned - while I somewhat like many of them - hold a similar place in my heart.

Ha, I thought that this one was going to get skipped. Though, technically, I have only missed one moe in since whitehair, I've still been slacking.
This one didn't pop into mind like usual, it just whacked me from behind when I wasn't expecting.

Not too long ago I re-watched the show, but even when I first watched the ol' Night Warriors/ Vampire Hunter (or whatever you address it as...) VHS, Anita was pretty moe back then.

It took me a good while to come up with one, but I finally remembered one I actually find kinda cute: Aisia from D.C.S.S.  I can't really say why she in particular appeals to me.  At least, moreso than other tennen boke.  It's probably cause she's just so darn pretty.  She's also kinda cute when she blushes.  Although, I would have rather she stayed stoic like she was in the first two episodes or so. :3

I've liked her since the English-translated demo of the game.  The anime kinda sucked.

My Photoshop crashed while I was making, IMO, a better avatar and I was too frustrated/pressed for time that I just tossed this one together.  I'll probably be too lazy to change it until next moe. ^^;

zoup: When the theme's announced, you pick a character. If you want, you can explain why you picked "her", and what your opinions are for the given theme. Then you make an avatar of her (or in my case, a sig) and use that for the week. That is all.

Hahi! This week's moe is chosen! ARIAのAkari desu!

Recently, Akari has joined my list of favorite characters of all time. Her inhumanly easygoing, honest and optimistic demeanor, and her accidentally graceful beauty, have captured my heart. And her patterns of speech are so adorable! "hoheeeee", "hahi!" and "ehhhhhhhhh?" are her trademarks (along with "embarrassing" remarks). They are about as cute as it gets, and they fit her demeanor so well. She's the kind of person who finds wonder everywhere, and enjoys it to its fullest, so that when you're around her, you can't help but feel warm and fuzzy inside.

As long as it's before the next moe....it's never too late!

Anywho, Marisa Kirisame:
For Touhou, you have to first start- are you a Reimu or Marisa fan? Afterwards, you can dive into the other set of characters.  I choose the Marisa path most of the time, if not always.

Putting aside the fact that I have a natural (not in the 'not weird' sense, but more instinctual) attraction to witches, I like her general makeup of character, even for all the faults she has in terms of being a descent human being.  
Lucky for me she is quite popular so I get a good number (of variable quality ) of images. 3rd by current za folder stats:
Marisa: 558 points
Youmu: 584
Reimu: 585
(points referring to current number of images in the solo character folder)


oh....and ~ze

Its a type of japanese speech... partically that of the kansai region.

And unless mDuo13 suddenly started speaking kansai-ben.... no.

Or.... maybe he's being mistranslated by that human interface device. D:

I'm also really bad at picking out the dialects... Maybe in time I will but... yeah...

I'm really curious if any characters I know speak it but I doubt I'll pick it out anytime soon.

BTW, anyone know if Lilith from Yami to Boshi to Hon no Tabibito speaks kansai-ben? It almost sounds like she does... but I was wondering if anyone knew for sure... (at least from her guest appearance in another show... guest appearances normally have the same seiyuu and speech patterns, right?)

If so, I pick her.

hmm, I don't recall Lilith speaking in kansai-ben, but I forget these things really easily. It seems I don't have my Yamibou to confirm, though.

I remember the kitsune spirit in that show having a very distinct (and annoying) kansai(?) dialect.

Hmm... I think Ayu from Kanon counts also. I don't think I claimed her before, so I'll go ahead and do so now. Its more of a selective amnesiac... -.-;

Finally got off my lazy butt and decided to make a new avvy for the moe.  Albeit, it is a bit lazily tossed together. XD;

Lenneth Valkyrie.  Like the Valkyries of Norse lore, she assists Odin in collecting einherjar to send to Asgard to fight in the war of Ragnarok.  She had once been reborn on Midgard, but her memories of that time had been sealed by Odin.  Thus, I figure she'd be a reasonable candidate for the theme.

Lenneth is cool.  There's no other way to put it.  She's a cool-dere.  Usually I'm not such a big cool-dere fan, but in this case I guess it works.

On a related note, I've now seen 13 episodes of Nadesico and I can say: Ruri is quite a good character. I'm kind of surprised how unimportant she is to the plot so far. I also don't mind Ryoko or Megumi, either. Though Megu is starting to wear out my patience.

Gekigangar III is awesome by the way. But not moe.

Getting farther in the series, Ruri gets better and better. She gets some interesting character development without being annoying or frustrating like a lot of the other characters. I still don't mind Ryoko or Megumi though. Also, the plot is a little difficult to follow sometimes, but I think I've pretty much got it. And yes, I know this isn't the Nadesico thread, but being as I'm the only one watching it right now, I'll just leave my comments here...

now, uh, Spiritsnare, when ARE you going to announce the moe?
Title: The MOE thread!
Post by: mDuo13 on August 31, 2007, 12:36:34 AM
Finished Nadesico. Good stuff. Ruri does get better and better. The series ending was totally more serious plot than I expected, too. So glad I finally watched it. Also, when I say "annoying or frustrating like a lot of the other characters" I didn't mean it too seriously. None of the characters in Nadesico really bothers me that much.

He ended up not doing so, but hey, here's your entrée of the week. Pick a course:

Standard Theme: Mouth-Hold

Rule of thumb? Any object that is held by the mouth that isn't being eaten. I forgot whether or not there were exceptions - for example, grabbing toast in one's mouth on the way out.

Alternative Theme: Saimoe 2007

Did you have a person you were really rooting for this year? Did you want to see someone die in the finals? Whatever the cause, celebrate the tournament with a entrant of your choosing!

Rule of thumb? Any object that is held by the mouth that isn't being eaten. I forgot whether or not there were exceptions - for example, grabbing toast in one's mouth on the way out.

The rule is as long as no masticating or swallowing is taking place, any given object (including food) is good.

Props to whoever combines the two choices into one awesome (questionable) avi/sig

Given Saimoe, I believe it ok to use her without worrying about redundancy.
If there was one given girl I was whole heartily supporting, it would be my favorite from all: Souseiseki

So happens that I checked danbooru today and I happened to stumble across a particular mouth hold image.

The theme for this next week or two or three is bloomers.

Apparently there's some distinction between bloomers and buruma that only Lisu, Tsubasa, and LastElixir know of, so I'll let them speak on the subject in regards to what constitutes "bloomers".

Naturally, please keep your avatars as tasteful as possible.

edit Okay, apparently the definition is "bloomers as in the undergarment fashion". Tsubasa also mentions "the thing Hinaichigo [of Rozen Maiden fame] wears"...

Re Mii - Zoids Genesis
This week's avvy feat. Taka Tony

Kinda an underrepped series in the west here.  Zoids Genesis is a fun little adventure series.  And although I think I like Kotona more, Mii is also quite cute.  Just think standard Kugimiya Rie fare.  Enjoyable from time to time.

I'm actually not sure whether Mii officially wears bloomers.  It's not like I can verify it in the show.  Nor do I have a figure/PVC to check.  But she's represented with them in enough fanart, so I went with it.

10. "Home-Ec" girls

Refers to girls that do housework for fun as opposed to out of necessity. Mostly associated with cooking for fun e.g. Chiyo Mihama (Azumanga Daioh), Sayuri Kurata (Kanon).

Ryu: Aoi Oribe (Myself; Yourself)
Amol: Haruka Minami (Minami-ke)
Sunara: Sanae Furukawa (Clannad)
mDuo13: Iokawa Karada (Asatte no Houkou)

I'll think of someone to pick for this week's moe sometime later today... If I don't pick one by the end of the day, I'll probably skip out on this week due to stupid finals.

For home ec girls.... Does Nagisa's mom count? I'll claim her if so.

I think she cooks her breads purely for the love of it, so I'd argue she does. Don't know if she's really young enough to fit the archetype, but I think she's moe enough.

(Hmm... This brings up an interesting philosophical point: does Akiko's jam count for this purpose? I guess Akiko cooks some other things, though not really extensively.)

I'm going to go ahead and claim Iokawa Karada from Asatte no Houkou. She was a favorite of mine a while back and Asatte no Houkou is a really underappreciated show. And episode 7 with the cake baking was pretty fun.

Yay! I'm not the only one that thinks so. (hmm... they should have an back story for her where they show her young. XP Or a whole new game revolving around her. XP)

err... I don't think Akiko's jam counts... -.-; She doesn't really strike me as one that cooks for fun.

(hey. Akiko and Nagisa's mom should be long lost sisters. In fact, they should make a game with both young Akiko and young Nagisa's mom. :3 Maybe standard school setting.)

Ah, but not every character-forming incident has to happen in youth! You could have a sidestory, of sorts, with their normal, adult selves, and this way Nagisa and Nayuki could have cameos. And come on, who doesn't want that?

This set (http://www.goodsmile.info/products/gsc/2008/gsc0807-01.html) happened to slip under my radar because of its inconspicuous name: SMILE800 V.I.P.  I've quickly rectified this by putting in an order for a box.

What concerns me is that there are 8 figures per box and I'm under the impression that they're truly randomized boxes.  I really want a whole set, so who wants to buy a set too?  If it is randomized, we can only stand to benefit off each other.  If it isn't randomized, then well, you'd have a full set too.  Win win.  Consider it.

As much as I'd likewise prefer a couple of characters instead, Eimi is fine.  I don't hate.  I would argue that the weakest link in the set overall is Akari.

And it'd be nice if they didn't already make PVCs based on the same illustrations the Konomi and Manaka are based on.  Never picked up the Konomi (as much as I did and still do want it), but I own the Manaka.

Overall though, the set is certainly top tier.

OK, so I just received my box and my suspicions turned out to be incorrect.  A box really does contain a full set.  So now I have all plus an extra Mizuki.

TOO GOOD!

Enter MangaGamer (http://www.mangagamer.com/): a new company offering officially licensed english-translated eroge in a pay-to-download format.  Although their initial offering won't be up until July 10th, we see that they're in cahoots with Circus, as evident by D.C. and Suika in their lineup.  The rest of their line up is viewable here (http://www.mangagamer.com/hentai/).  Nothing else terribly worth noting.

The engrishy site leaves a bit to be desired, but I going to remain extremely hopeful that these guys can do some good work.  Hell, it doesn't even have to be good work if they can continue to get stuff from relatively big companies like Circus.

I've always kinda wanted to play Suika, but never got around to it.  I guess I'm playing it in english.  As for D.C., unfortunately it's the original and not P.S., but that's better than nothing.  At least there's still a lot for me there.  And, most importantly, Nemu is in any version of the game. :3

It's going to be so bad.

edit It seems as though MangaGamer's either run by and/or associated with OverDrive, the same guys who do Cosmode Online; in that case, prepare for decent English with a few sprinkles of 'rish on the side.

second edit Overdrive is the name of the galge company :< Never mind.

Ah-hah. I was wondering for years why the market for English language h-games was so... sparse. Almost nonexistent, even. Especially given the steadily growing customer base for such a thing. Good to know somebody's finally looking to profit from it.

Thanks. Yeah, I haven't seen much of Zero no Tsukaima, but I just really like how Louise looks, and I have to get my occasional taste of tsundere.

I also have a stick with Shana/Louise on it, which is pretty cool, but I don't use it much since it has my Sanwa Flash clone in it.

Little story behind my Louise stick is at Evo, Japanese player Kindevu didn't have a stick (Why would he need one anyways?) and he was going to play another player in the room we were in, so he looked at my stick and got Tokido (Another Japanese player) to ask me to use the stick in english (Kindevu doesn't have good english speaking skills.) I told him sure. After a game, he pointed to my stick and said "Moe, we call in Japanese, kind of like English word for cute, I like this stick I want to use it." A lot of the times during the tournament, I had to hunt him down to get my stick back to play in my games.

To drum up some conversation of worth in here, lets do a survey of people's favorite moetic characters of the last season (Summer 2008), since it just ended.  I'll start off:

(Order is a suggestion, not a definitive)
Sanya V. Litvyak (Strike Witches)
Eila Ilmatar Juutilainen (Strike Witches)
Tsubame (Natsume Yuujinchou)

Honorable mentions:
Erica Hartmann (Strike Witches)
Fox child - proper name never given - (Natsume Yuujinchou)
Asagi (Natsume Yuujinchou)
Nogizaka Haruka (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu)
Chouun (Koihime Musou)

Strike Witches was the batch of moe that everyone expected.  And Sanya's the best witch, IMO.  Too good!  Interestingly enough, Natsume Yuujinchou made a surprisingly good showing of moetic youkai.  Tsubame is tops, but the fox child, is hella cute.  Unjustly cute.

Definitely. X3 That kid just reeks of moe that is was hard not to like him immediately from just the anime op.
Btw, the name seems to be Kogitsune. XD But probably everyone knows that by now.

Perhaps it is only me, but Taki Tooru (Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou) is top teer of the girls for me from that show. >.<  With Reiko and Tsubame following.

So... does anyone have a link to a site with definitions for the moe concepts?
The more extensive the better.

I came across a term in one of the new shows I'm watching; I'm not sure if it is an official term or just the punchline to a joke. I suspect it is the latter but I want to confirm anyway. Something along the lines of tundra; But it sounds closer to tsundra or tsundara. It may have been just a pun on tsundere. (Spoiler coded as it probably would ruin the punchline if its a joke)

actually see link ---> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moe_%28slang%29

usually its in correlation to females ONLY - men usually do not fall under this category.

keep in mind that the feeling / definition of traditional moe 萌え does not involve anything sexual in content. and Yaoi... well thats sorta self explanitory. :P

yaoi = yaoi      boy love no matter how "cute"    or  how it makes you 'feel' ... its NOT 萌え  moe
thats the breaks.

girls are made of : sugar, spice and everything nice [power puff girls are made with Chemical X]

boys are made of : snips, snails, and a puppy dog tails ...

so yah, again boys no matter how much you cutetify them they will not be as moe as this:

Ah Shi~ my Nemesis JTchinoy.

'Chuu' tends to be a sound effect for kissing in the wacky land of Japan.
The rest should be obvious.

Why am I posting in this Weeaboo thread...

No one does.
Those that dislike it do not attempt to understand it.
Those that do are kinda like zombies, and are incapable of understanding it. Hell, at that point, they function off of simple programing ingrained into their destroyed minds...
