Do you know what ‘moe’ is? Chances are you do, and if you don’t, it’s not something you can learn through words alone. The phenomenon is one of the biggest factors of modern anime, and is a major part of otaku culture and psychology. ‘Moe’ is defined as a ‘turn-on’ or an aspect of a character that makes them attractive.
Customarily, a moe girl is one who the viewer feels a need to protect. The concept of moe has been around forever, but the word only came into usage more recently, probably within the last 10 years. Moe centers on ‘cuteness’ and a lot of it’s roots are in the computer game genre known as ‘galge’ or ‘eroge’ or ‘dating sims’ or ‘visual novels’ which are mostly text-based games that simulate starting a relationship with a moe girl, and can have stories in the range of anything from traditional romance to psychological horror.
