Anime Moe points


Recommended Posts

To put it simply, a moe point is a superficial trait that heightens your interest in or affection for a character. It can be physical (e.g. hair ribbons, eye color, school uniform, bust size) or more abstract (such as cute catchphrases and other quirks).

So in this thread, you take the character(s) of your choice and explain their moe points. Images are encouraged, as long as they're work-safe and don't stretch the layout.

Here's an example. [size=1]I wanted to use Chie Hallard from My Otome--she would've been perfect for this--but it's so hard to find good pictures of her. Oh well.[/size]

[B]Name:[/B] Rai
[B]Source:[/B] Lamento - Beyond the Void [a PC game]
[B]Status:[/B] One of four main characters. A one-eyed, fluffy-tailed bounty hunter. Clearly, he hails from the Sesshomaru School of Bishounen Design.


- Cat ears, tail & fangs.
- Eyepatch. I am soooo weak against eye-related features--glasses, eyepatches, heterochromia, you name it.
- Gets flustered by hot food.
- Occasionally goes berserk in battle.
- Comes equipped with an appropriately [url=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v632/DaggerIX1/childraialt.jpg][u]Dark and Bloody Past?[/u][/url].
- Is voiced by Toshiyuki Morikawa (Sephiroth).

Again, that was just an example. Have fun, and feel free to use any format you like. :catgirl:

[COLOR="DarkOrange"]I guess I'll use my possbily favorite anime character ever... *NOTE: some linked images are linked for HUEG* On the left~


[B]Name[/B]: Yunocchi
[B]Source[/B]: Hidamari Sketch (which you'd all be giddy over if you'd just watch it already and not have me complain about you not seeing it so much)
[B]Status[/B]: She is the main character supported closely by her best friend Miyako, and her upper-grade frinds Sae and Hiro. Yuno has little self confidence, but she is very hapy because her friends are always there for her. From the Lain scool of unconfident short haired girls witht things in their hair.

- Short, adorable hair with X. Do not question X. X's presence resonates throughout the galaxy. You would understand, if you'd only watched Hidamari Sketch.
- That 4-koma simplicity
- Petitieness
- [url=http://moe.imouto.org/post/show/7871]Innocent, cheerful mind[/url]
- A memer of the most adorable cast ever with the [url=http://moe.imouto.org/post/show/3099]best seifuku ever[/url]
- There is no porn of her, only [url=http://moe.imouto.org/post/show/3098]insanely cute art[/url]
- [url=http://moe.imouto.org/post/show/3103]Great sense of style[/url]
- [url=http://moe.imouto.org/post/show/4371]Strong relationship with her friends.[/url]


-This is a weak example of how deformed characters heads can become. Often, they may outweigh the whole body, lol. They are truly the best chibis ever.

[B]Name:[/B] Sora "Amazing!" Naegino
[B]Source:[/B] Kaleido Star
[B]Status:[/B] The main character (and what a main character she is). At the beginning of the series, she comes to LA to audition for the Kaleido Stage, a famous Cirque du Soleil-style circus.


- Positive attitude. Her cheerfulness is never annoying.
- The way she repeats sentence endings when she's apprehensive ("~kana... kana... kana!?")
- Her gorgeous performance costumes
- Her scary determination
- Flexibility. Which might sound a little dirty, ahaha, but it's so adorable when she carries on a regular conversation while doing a headstand or the splits or something.
- Awesome vocal work by Ryou Hirohashi. This was the role that made me love her. Whenever I hear her in other shows, I get nostalgic for K*.

[font="trebuchet ms"] GOD yes. Kamina is the greatest macho-man stereotype in anime, ever. He's just hilarious and I love him. I loved his phrase "believe in me...who believes in you." :P

And he gets the girl. [/font]

- Best boss ever. He's really lenient about vacation, takes the crew out to lunch every once in awhile, and just got approved for 401(k) planning. Plus he's a damn good shot with that .44.
- The coolest Christian you will ever meet. "Amen, hallelujah, peanut butter."
- Never, ever takes off those sunglasses.
- If you're ever in a karaoke bar with him, ask him to sing that version of Barry White's "You're the First, the Last, My Everything." You'll understand why.
- Cracks jokes about people who were dead decades before you were born, and STILL manages to make them funny.
- Is probably Tyrone "Clean" Miller from Apocalypse Now. Apparently got the hell out of 'Nam a couple of years before the pullout.
- Completely adorable when he smiles.

[COLOR="DarkOrange"]Might as well go with the ultimate (IMO)...


Name: Lain

Status: She might be god. The world as you know it may not exist. It may be that we are all one mind experiencing ourselves subjectively, and that with the evolution of the net we will eventually transcend our mortal bodies and become transient. Or it could be that she's just really ****** up on Accella XD


- First and foremost, she's drawn by freaking ABe. If you don't understand what that means, you need to look at more pictures of Lain. [url=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/MetalSonic700/lainazul.jpg]Let me help you with that.[/url]


- She plays guitar? I'm pretty sure this is from one of the artbooks, even though we never see her with it in the show itself. I bet she's great, though.


- That puts your average beowulf cluster to shame! Honestly, tech skills are definitely a plus. Especially when she can transcend... life, essentially.
- Lain's troubles make you cry out of sheer desire to comfort her. Honestly, not being able to do anything for her makes you actually feel bad. [url=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b269/MetalSonic700/sel_lain028.jpg] Mild Spoiler image. [/url]

I can't believe nobody's mentioned this yet, but:

[B]Name:[/B] Yoko Littner

[B]Status:[/B] One of the three original main characters, former girlfriend of Kamina and one of Simon's closest friends.


- Va-va-voom. Now that we've got that out of the way, let's move on to the less obvious stuff.
-The fact that her swimsuit is less revealing than what she normally wears. That's just hilarious.
-She's actually a pretty good fighter. I get tired of all those damsels in distress all the time. If Yoko's ever in distress, it's because she's simply outgunned. And that's hard to do.
-She's smart. So, smart, in fact, that she becomes a teacher for a while in the second half. And while she taught, she wore...
-Glasses. I don't know what it is, but I just think glasses are awesome.
-She's a redhead. My favorite hair color.
-She wears a ponytail, which I also think is awesome for some unfathomable reason.
-That skull hairpiece is just too cool.
-She's a bit tomboyish and has a lot of spunk.
-She can be protective and nurturing as well as violent and angry.
-Voiced by Michelle Ruff in the dub, who did a lot of VA work for Digimon (the memories...) and was Fujiko in Geneon's Lupin III dub.[/FONT]

[b]Status:[/b] Member of the Student Council and head of the fencing club


-- Her toughness. Juri isn't going to take any **** from you no matter who you are.
-- Her awesome fencing skillz. If my girlfriend were a fencer, I would feel safe all the time.
-- She is arguably the sharpest of the Student Council members. [spoiler]Juri doesn't even really fall under Akio's spell, unlike the other councilpeople who fought before her. She's definitely not all over Ruka before her duel with Utena, anyway lol.[/spoiler]
-- Her Student Council uniform. I have a weird thing for the uniforms in this show. >_>
-- Her hair. It is ridiculously cute.
-- The way she stares off into nowhere sometimes when she speaks.
-- The wistful looks she gets when she remembers something painful from her past.
-- The way she is so deliberate, yet casual with everything she does.
-- The ending to her mini-arc tugs at my heart. :(

[b]Name:[/b] Haruka Shitow
[b]Source:[/b] RahXephon
[b]Status:[/b] A captain in TERRA, an organization dedicated to MDKing the Mulians.


-- She kicks the most *** of any character aside from Ayato. Her introduction is full of *** kicking and win.
-- She is very responsible but also incredibly fun and playful, which is super sexy.
-- Her short hair. (!!!)
-- That bandana is super uber cute.
-- Come on, she [spoiler]waited 15 years for the opportunity to reconnect with the love of her life. If that is not dedication, I don't know what is.[/spoiler]
-- Her reaction upon finding a kitten when she and Ayato escape Tokyo Jupiter. <3
-- She [spoiler]gives Ayato a present she had made 15 years before, and when he likes it, she reacts as if she is a schoolgirl again.[/spoiler] That is just the cutest thing ever.
-- She'll [spoiler]do anything for Ayato[/spoiler], and yet she never comes off like a blind, lovesick idiot who is hopeless without her guy.
-- When [spoiler]Ayato finally realizes he loves her[/spoiler], that is a guaranteed "awwwww" moment from me.
-- Monica Rial's voice is really hot. >>;

[SIZE="1"]I'm personally surprised I've not posted here yet...

In any case without further ado, here's some of my contributions:

[b]Name:[/b] Rin Asougi
[b]Source:[/b] Mnemosyne
[b]Status:[/b] Private investigator and immortal being

[Addendeum: sjfjhssdhg I regret deleting the series off my computer...good images of her are SO hard to find...]

-- She kicks butt. I mean, really. I wanna know what acrobatics class she took.
-- The fact that if she didn't have jugs, she could easily pass off as a relatively pretty man.
-- In addition to the previous one, something about that suit tickles me...
-- [spoiler]Her tush sets off an alarm in the first episode. Come on, you gotta give that some loling credit.[/spoiler]
-- The glasses. I have a severe, severe, SEVERE glasses fetish...
-- The fact that this post is making me sound more and more like a lesbian. XD;;

I do have one more, from the opposite gender. People would normally go FFFFFFFFFFFF at me calling this guy "moe" but, when I think about it...dear God...

In any case, replaying his game for the first time in quite a while the other day has re-sparked my love for this guy:

[b]Name:[/b] Jade Curtiss
[b]Source:[/b] Tales of the Abyss
[b]Status:[/b] Colonel in the Malkuth army, former[?] Necromancer

[I fricken adore this shot of him for some strange reason. Probably because his LONG BLONDE HAIR FLOWS IN THE WIIIIIND~~~ *smacked*]

-- Enough to make me go into an all caps outburst for a moment. I apologize for the tantrum.
-- Them [u][URL="http://i38.tinypic.com/2d6rz95.jpg"]boots[/URL][/u]. I loves me some leg-length boots. Yet he manages to wear them and not look queer. Which is good.
-- [u][URL="http://i38.tinypic.com/5cd075.jpg"]Radiant blonde[/URL][/u] hair. ...Or [u][URL="http://i33.tinypic.com/2hofdvl.jpg"]brunette[/URL][/u]. ...or is it [u][URL="http://i33.tinypic.com/2s7yo3r.jpg"]kind of a mix of the two?[/URL][/u] ...I have no idea, but I love it all the same.
-- Kirk Thornton's voice for him is oddly sexy. >> It wasn't what I envisioned for him [had friends that fangirled over him before I got the game], but I grew accustomed to it after awhile. When I watch the anime, I'm gonna dearly miss his voice...*crosses fingers for a dub using the original English voice cast, although this is very unlikely*
-- That spear isn't compensating for anything. It's a [i]representation[/i]. Oh yeah. I went there.
-- The glasses. The glasses. Woaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah nelly. [spoiler]And it turns out he actually HAS to have them on? Haha, wow.[/spoiler]
-- In speaking of glasses, those red eyes. God, they're gorgeous...

.................I'm just going to go now. This post is gonna turn into fangirlish dribble [as if it hasn't already].

I agree with you a million percent on every point about Rin. My god. It's as if the [b]Mnemosyne[/b] character designer plunged a hand straight into my head and ripped out the visual ideal of a character I would be guaranteed to love. The green hair, the glasses, the suit (crossdressing women in suits -- epic, epic win; please tell me I am not alone on this), her occasional jaunts in slinky dresses (!!!), the pure *** kicking awesome of her everyday life ... maaaaaaaan.

OK, moar contributions from me again, finally. Here's one 'Gome and I were discussing recently ...

[b]Name[/b]: Adiane the Elegant
[b]Source[/b]: Gurren Lagann
[b]Status[/b]: One of the Spiral King's Four Supreme Generals who are sent to obliterate Team Gurren.


-- She's wonderfully evil. Evil chicks are hot. Therefore, Adiane is hot -- irrefutable logic.
-- She has sexy legs. I am desperate to find a good screencap of this. ('Gome knows [i]exactly[/i] what I am talking about.)
-- The eyepatch. Dear lord. It accentuates the crazy evilness, and I love it.
-- [url=http://www.sonymusic.co.jp/Animation/gurrenlagann/chara/images/adiane.gif][b]Her normal outfit[/b][/url] is glorious. Look at all the ruffles!!
-- As seen in the above link, her evil smirk is amazing. Evil smirks [i]always[/i] get to me.
-- She yells at Viral a lot, and she is pretty cute when she's angry. The ultimate abusive boss.
-- Um, look at the ****ing picture I provided. Man oh man. (BTW, massive thumbs down at SciFi for nixing the commercial transitions. Those are great.)

And just because I have avoided this for so long that I cannot do it anymore ...

[b]Name[/b]: Utena Tenjou
[b]Source[/b]: Revolutionary Girl Utena
[b]Status[/b]: All around *** kicking, gender subverting heroine.


-- Her uniform is a thousand times better than the regular girls' uniform. I support all women in their endeavors to dress more princely.
-- In connection to that point, her look became a million times more enjoyable after she recovered from [spoiler]her loss to Touga, and her subsequent "Well, I guess I'll try to be more like a girl!" phase, which was oddly disturbing.[/spoiler]
-- [url=http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1026/1268765519_87be764c2b.jpg?v=0][b]Short-haired Utena[/b][/url] from the movie is an official member of the pantheon of amazing short-haired female characters. Jesus.
-- This is a piece of fanart, but [url=http://www.eyrie-productions.com/UF/FI/SOS/GFX/dm-utena-anthy-p.jpg][b]wouldn't Utena make an AMAZING pirate[/b][/url]? That is Captain Keira Knightley levels of life-altering right there.
-- She does the most random things when people are talking to her. It is kind of cute to see her doing headstands and whatnot when people are discussing serious issues.
-- I love how she is just herself with little regard to what people think of her.
-- Along those lines, I also love the whole "Yeah, I want to be prince, but, um, I'm still a [i]girl[/i], you know" motif with her. Gender fluidity ftw.
-- She is great at sports. Yes. Especially basketball. MORE YES. A woman after my own heart.
-- She does the whole "Never gonna give up!!" thing SO WELL, and it is never annoying.
-- Pink hair: Hot in real life, and hot in anime. Oh yes.
-- Like Juri, she also has amazing sad, wistful looks when she is thinking deeply about something. To borrow a phrase from Dagger, that is death by moe.

[FONT=Arial]Yeah, this might break the flow of the thread, since it seems my tastes are . . . decidedly different.

[LIST][*]Classy dresser. Does the business suit without drifting down the "office whore" direction. Also, smart, low, closed-toe heels are a plus.
[*]The coat. Makes me envious.
[*]The hair. Plain old straight hair bothers me. Seems fake. [I]This[/I] woman has some body to hers.

Ehh, more than some....
[*]Normally I don't go for painted nails, but I think I could make an exception....
[*]Burn scar over the eye. Although, it's not really the scar itself, but the way it draws you into her right eye. Like it's daring you to look into it. (I think something inside me goes 'ooh, a challenge' at that.)
[*]Sense of [URL="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z158/Allamorph/Game%20Pieces/bala3.jpg"][COLOR="Blue"]timing[/COLOR][/URL]. (That is a building blowing up, by the way. ♥)
[*][URL="http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z158/Allamorph/Game%20Pieces/Balalaika2.jpg"][COLOR="Blue"]This[/COLOR][/URL] is a heck of a place to put a tiny mole. Screw the corner of the lip.
[*]Also, she knows how to work that cigar.
[*]If she says she is going to kill you, she is going to kill you. If you mess with one of her people, she will kill you. If you welch on a deal, she will . . . probably kill you. Basically, she's trustworthy.
[*]She doesn't tolerate crap. ♥
[*]Both times I've seen her have to fight, she's finished the exchange in less than two seconds. Flashy don't always equal effective.[/LIST]

Essentially, I would have no qualms trusting her with [I]anything[/I]. She joins R. Dorothy and The Major on my list of competent women in anime.[/FONT]
