Not long ago, I saw a post questioning why people feel the need to share with others their pornographic preferences. While there’s certainly something to be said about keeping sexual preferences private simply due to their nature, there are many people in the anime fandom who are quite open about the kinds of fanservice, character designs, and even hentai they enjoy, and further, are eager to share that with others.
So, there’s a post idea making the rounds. The idea is simple: List and explain ten unpopular anime opinions you hold. I found out about it at Anime Yume, but it originally came from somewhere else.
And so, I present to you the list, in no particular order.

Sexuality is perhaps one of the most hotly-contested aspects of moé. Some say it’s normal. Some say it’s creepy. Some are quick to deny that it’s even a part of moé.
Regardless of where we stand individually on the issue, the fact is, if we’re going to have the moé conversation, all of us will have to deal with opinions we disagree with, have conversations we might be uncomfortable with, and question our own beliefs, as well as the beliefs of others.
Where does sex fit into moé? Does sex fit into moé? What about fetishization? Is sex a part of moé love, or are they separate? Operation Shion Fujino seeks not to definitively answer these questions, but to start the discussion that will answer them.
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.
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.
