Robot Apocalypse

Friends are the best, am I right? Always looking out for you, there for you when you need them. You can count on your real friends to tell you when your pants make you look fat or your fly's undone.

My friends say things like "I was at the store the other day, and I saw this shirt, and I just knew it was perfect for you," or "I heard this song and I thought you'd love it!" Things like "I wanted to tell you about this place you'd enjoy," and "Did you like that article I sent you about giant squids?" and "I found a video that can help you with that guitar chord you were telling me about."

Warm Colors and Kind Smiles

Hello. Today is a topic that I feel needs some attention. It is sadly a point of contention and confusion in the Western anime fandom as people struggle to figure out this Japanese concept. I will attempt to explain my perspective on it.

Anime has many different genres. It is as diverse as live action television in its themes and content. Within the anime medium, there are certain trends. One of these trends is known as moe (with an accent on the e). The impact it has had on anime is widespread and it is by no means a new thing. Anime has been focusing on character appeal for many years. This generation of anime is an especially character focused time. The anime fandom community deeply enjoys interesting characters and their interactions. Moe is in response to that.
