The word "moe" is not even in my electronic dictionary but for those who learn japanese or stay in japan it is a word that nobody don't know. Loosely translated it should be something like u feel excited or high when u see some particular stuff.For example when a guy who like girl with school uniform , he will feel 'moe' when he does see one. And he will says out the word 'moe' usually to his friend or even in front of the object.
Yesterday,I read a funny post about moe in my japanese friend's blog. One day , he saw some writing on his desk.It is written as following " please write down anything that make you feel moe". And there are already 22 entries.Of course it is written by different person who coincidently sit there. He himself added 3 entries later on. I cant understand the meaning of most of the entries so i asked him to explain to me almost one by one. I found it so interesting that i wanna share it here before i forget.
So here is the list !!
1ツンデレ(tsundere)= someone who will treat u very well but sometimes become very moody and easily get angry. Some sort of hot and cool person...
2ヤンデレ(yandere)= someone with heart problem? always seem dark...
3クーデレ(cool-dere)=someone who is very cool ( can considered quite normal)
4ロリ(rori)=famously refered as rorikon.Someone who likes small young girl.( It is such a serious social problem.Even in Msia cases of raping young girl are on the rise!!)
5ショタ(shota)=It is the same as above just that this refers to someone who like young boy.
8ババデレ(babadere)=someone who will pamper and treat u like a baby.
9不思議ちゃん(fusigichan)=someone who is strange.
11メイド(meido)= maid ( not those maid in Msia, it is maid who wear costume as below)
12どじっ娘(dojikko)= Very careless girl.For example: someone who always break stuff no matter how many times you warn her.Basically cant be cured.
13にぱー☆(nipa-)= i dont really understand this:( He said that it is a word that quite famous among young kid now.
14つるべた(tsurubeta)=airport= the opposite of big breast
15姉(ane)= elder sister
16制服(seifuku)=costume , basically refers to school uniform.
17ブルマ(buruma)= short short. Almost the same like one a marathon runner wears.
18スク水(sukumizu)=japanese high school girl's swimwear
20チアコス(chiakosu)= Cheerleader cosplay
21獣耳(kemonomimi)=girls with beast ears!! Of course it only exists in anime world.
Now i'm one step closer to understand why many peoples think that japanese man is hentai. But i feel that all man or even woman must have their own preference type of opposite sex just that they are not as specific as japanese and as open as them to talk it out.Me too have my own "moe" button. So do you have one?
