The Anubis Perspective: Moe Moe Part 8: Mindless Fan-Service

This is an old post I originally wrote for the now-defunct Moé Coalition site. The site has since been taking down by the owner, but I’ve managed to salvage some of my posts. This is one of them.

 

Selnia Flameheart 7Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with more talk about moe!

Moe anime and fanservice often go hand-in-hand. Not always, but often, and especially when the Anti-Moe Brigade’s talking about either.

The Anti-Moé Brigade vs. The Moé Fandom

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with more on moé!

Being fans of obscure media (At least, obscure in relation to more generally-accepted media), some infighting will occur within the fandom. Arguments are inevitable between individuals who are passionate about a particular subject. However, at the end of the day, those people should be able to accept each other as members of the same fandom, and work together to better it.

The Anti-Moé Brigade doesn’t seem interested in this.

It’s Not So Bad in the Niche

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with some thoughts on the gaming world!

It’s not hard to see that the current gaming climate is warmer for certain gamers. Those looking for shooters certainly don’t have a hard time looking for something to play. The climate is colder for gamers who play games in genres that might have been bigger in the past, but aren’t as big now. This has sparked some dissatisfaction and animosity from those who are looking for less contemporary genres, and it’s not hard to understand why.

Americentrism in the Anti-Moe Brigade

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with more about moé!

Not too long ago, Kgods, a friend of the site, directed me to an episode of Destroy All Podcasts DX. In the tail end of the episode, after briefly insulting VZ (Another friend of the site), there was a discussion about moé and its affect on the anime industry. The discussion, however, was less of a discussion and more of a long-winded explanation by one of the presenters, dripping with Americentrism.

The Nintendo Double-Standard

Howdy!

Time Enforcer Anubis here with more commentary on gaming!

Back on the old blog, I made a post about the clamour for originality coming from gamers. It’s still something I think is an issue in the gaming community, and it’s related to the issue I present here.

Depth and a ‘shallow’ anime

Humanity is under siege from an unstoppable threat. Conventional weaponry doesn’t work against them, nor does diplomacy or surrender. In the midst of the conflict, a special weapon is developed. Usable only by specially-gifted young people, this new weapon is the only way to fight back against the powerful enemy threat. These youths now find themselves thrust into a military conflict as the last, best hope for humanity. Countering the enemy on all fronts, these heroic young people must band together and rely on each other to defeat the enemy, for the fate of the entire world rest on their shoulders.

All Roads Lead to Cowboy Bebop

There’s one anime that’s universally held up on a pedestal above many others.

It’s referenced whenever an example of an English dub better than the original Japanese is needed.

It’s been re-run on Adult Swim countless times since the block first began.

It’s brought up whenever the Anti-Moé Brigade calls for a stop to moé and a “return” to “better” anime.

The anime is Cowboy Bebop, and I’m sick and tired of hearing about it.
