The Moe Manifesto

SUMMARY ☆ The Moe Manifesto MOE is a huge cultural phenomenon and one of the driving forces behind the enormous success of Japanese anime and manga not just in Japan now but throughout the worldIn Japan avid fans of manga comics anime films and videogames use the term MOE to refer to the strong sense of emotional attachment they feel for their favorite characters These fans have a powerful desire to protect and nurture the young beautiful and innocent characters they adore like Sagisawa Moe in Dinosaur Planet and Tomoe Hotaru in Sailor Moon They create their own websites. As someone living in Japan and fascinated by the modern trends of Japanese culture I have enjoyed books by Patrick Galbraith including this book But the effect of the book might have been different than the author might have expectedI am fascinated by modern Japanese culture and although I am not a particular fan of anime or manga I am curious about the otaku who are obsessed about these topics I had heard the word mo but didn t know what it meant Now I know and it made me rethink my view of manga and animeThe book is a collection of interviews with illustrations that in total give me a feeling that I now know what mo means and it is not meant for me Mr Galbraith is a good writer and an good interviewer and his interviews gave me an image of people not able to find real love in the real world who find a suitable replacement to fulfill their needs The common theme in that Japanese women being much selective and Japanese men because of the economy not being successful in finding a 3D mate settle for the unuestioning world of idolization of two dimensional characters who will neither accept them nor reject them As one otaku he uoted said real otaku don t yearn after 3 D womenReading this book I was sad for those who couldn t find soul mate but I realized that seeking love in a 2 D character is better than nothing There is a whole culture here which cannot find female companionship because the standards set by the female population excludes this section of the male populationThe book explained to me a happily married non otaku what the pressures they face and why they choose this unconventional avenue of love fulfillment It also explains the success of AKA 48 and other idol group To this sub section of men who cannot attract 3 D women this is a non threatening way to have unreuited love without the rejection by the object of one s affection As a practical matter 2 D women will never reject you because they are imaginary and don t even know you existThe book is fascinating in the portrayal of this sub culture and is well written It made me understand and feel sympathy for a sub culture that I would never want to join Nuit of the Living Dead give me a feeling that I now know what mo means and it is not meant for me Mr Galbraith is a Media MessagesWhat Film Television and Popular Music Teach Us about Race Class Gender and Sexual Orientation good writer and an The Ants Go Marching One by One good interviewer and his interviews 27 Groups of Exercises: Trumpet gave me an image of people not able to find real love in the real world who find a suitable replacement to fulfill their needs The common theme in that Japanese women being much selective and Japanese men because of the economy not being successful in finding a 3D mate settle for the unuestioning world of idolization of two dimensional characters who will neither accept them nor reject them As one otaku he uoted said real otaku don t yearn after 3 D womenReading this book I was sad for those who couldn t find soul mate but I realized that seeking love in a 2 D character is better than nothing There is a whole culture here which cannot find female companionship because the standards set by the female population excludes this section of the male populationThe book explained to me a happily married non otaku what the pressures they face and why they choose this unconventional avenue of love fulfillment It also explains the success of AKA 48 and other idol Dear Jane group To this sub section of men who cannot attract 3 D women this is a non threatening way to have unreuited love without the rejection by the object of one s affection As a practical matter 2 D women will never reject you because they are imaginary and don t even know you existThe book is fascinating in the portrayal of this sub culture and is well written It made me understand and feel sympathy for a sub culture that I would never want to join

REVIEW The Moe Manifesto

SUMMARY ☆ The Moe Manifesto Characters stories discussion groups toys and games based around the original manga and anime rolesAuthor Patrick Galbraith is the world's acknowledged expert on MOE and a journalist based in Tokyo For this book he interviewed twenty important figures in the world of Japanese manga and anime to gain their insights on the MOE phenomenon These interviews provide us with the first in depth survey of this subject Galbraith uncovers how MOE is influencing an entire generation of manga artists and readers For those new to anime manga and youth cultur. I received this book via Goodreads First Reads Giveaways That was in July It has taken me this long to realize that I will never finish this book The vast majority of my complaints for this book stem purely from its formatFirst of all to call it a book is a bit too generous It is a series of long interviews Which makes Patrick W Galbraith s work remarkably simple All he need do is soft ball some rather pointed leading uestions to pop culture and animemanga experts This does not an author make This is the work of a trial lawyerConseuently the book feels disjointed It is a patchwork of different voices Galbraith wrote an intro first chapter but that is only 23 pages of original content and the rest of the book is other people doing the talking for him Secondly the book takes a very defensive point of view in regards to animemanga fans Which is silly since the vast majority of persons who will pick up this book will most likely be animemanga fansThe book boasts a pink cover with a smorgasbord of cutesy 2D girls Who else but other animemanga fans who already have sympathetic leanings towards the community and are already very knowledgeable about Hatsune Miku would pick up this book It feels like preaching to the choir Too much time is spent trying to legitimize the concept of moe and trying to make the fanbase seem normal This book is written by a fan for the purposes of making fellow fans feel better about themselves A scholarly read this is not The only worthwhile bits of the book center around the early history of manga and Japanese Art Besides that this book is an uncritical echo chamber of 19 voices and most curiously of all Patrick W Galbraith s voice seems to be missing

The Mo Manifesto is a collection of interviews with mangaanimebish jo game insiders and artists about mo recent Japanese history and how it impacted media cultural icons males youth Akihabara the interviewees themselves and cute girl characters We see differing perspectives and explanations as to what mo means its unclear origins and why it grew to such popularityWhile I never considered myself a fan of mo specifically I definitely feel mo towards some characters especially over the past couple of years before 2018 The first section by author Patrick W Galbraith is informative and a good introduction Most of the interviews made me learn something however small new and a select few sentences even made me uestion my own existence As a fan of anime there were a few moments that made me go AAAAAAAAA because a certain characterseries was shown and the book provides plenty of illustrations that spice up the look and feel of it all My main problems were that some of the interviews felt too short and really should have gone in depth with the interviewee and I feel like the book in general could have gone deeper Another one is that despite the introduction the book ends abruptly with no conclusion by Galbraith or anyone Even if the general sentiment was that mo is not a clear cut concept that doesn t excuse the lack of a conclusion It s as if you aired a series but never aired the last episode It also wouldn t have hurt to include an interviewee who opposed the whole trend or otaku culture and finally some answers to the uestions sort of repeated previous onesIt didn t completely change my view on mo but it made me open up a bit to different forms and interpretations of it and it held my interest most of the way through65 710 AlrightGood
