Moe Day [part 1]

People from all around the world! Get ready for a party…because…this day…10.10.2010 it is the official MOE DAY!!

Japanese culture can impress you when it comes about explaining enjoying the little things. They tend to celebrate the most inexpressive things but which are useful and simple. We have celebrated different festivals related to different things. But now, it’s time to dedicate ourselves to the cutest and sweetest and the most beautiful things that exist: all that the moe phenomenon contains.

Now, an ample definition of this idiom would tell you that it’s a cliche when talking about anime/video-games female characters.

As you can see above all that is cute and apparently innocent it’s moe.

But this concept it’s not related only to the physical aspect of a character. The capacity of creating good impressions by acting “cute” in someone’s presence is also moe. If you saw “K-On” you know that the entire show goes like “moe, moe – kyun”. Cuteness overload. Perfect expression for describing what that show offers.

And it’s not the only one. And still, I have one question. Why do we have to celebrate moe again, when we already are celebrating it, with every show that we watch? The answer depends on what you feel when watching something. If you’re absorbed into it, you probably are involved in a fixed session of cherishing the plot, the characters, the messages..and honestly I’ve been through that.

Anyway, for those who really are into MOE, what can I say – enjoy it while it lasts 😀

[part two coming soon]

Moe Club: Melona

What makes an individual to become a fan?

It is a subliminal message, it is a direct one, it is some sort of strange and twisted way of understanding a concept or it is just “love” at first sight?

Probably nobody knows for sure what she/he likes. If you don’t get a good look at the product you can’t state exactly what you like and don’t like about it.

What makes a certain thing to be successful among the people who are the recipients? And more exactly what does a character [seen as a product] to become desirable?

Well, today we’re going to talk about this. Welcome to the Moe Club.

Today’s feature – Melona [Queen’s Blade].

Nowadays anime characters seem to be integrated all into this single big phenomena known as moe. Male or female characters [especially females] must have something cute about them. I said this once – artists love to create cute/beautiful/sexy/hot female characters.

The public [trust me] wants what? Cute/beautiful/sexy/hot characters.

Tell me what you first observe when you see Melona? Big bouncing boobs, a cute face and a desirable body, right? Do you like it? Of course you do you little motherf…[cough] friend.

Who wouldn’t love that face – I mean it has something about it – that makes the character [even is she is a villain – minion of the Swamp Witch] adorable.

The physical aspect – let me guess you perverted shit – is what you like about her right?

You may not believe what I’m saying but most male anime fans can easily find themselves here. I kinda find myself in here too – otherwise I wouldn’t be writing this.

But too much moe it’s just wrong…Anyway since it’s the first Club meeting we let Melona go. She passed the test – and we need her just because of the boo…because she is a villain right?
