Do you agree that Moe is the cancer killing the industry? Why is all anime nowadays so dull and non-actiony?

You had SnK and now KlK, what are you even complaining about?

And Noragami.
Those people don't even watch anime.

Every season, there are moe anime and there are non-moe anime.
It's not anyone's fault but yours if you only stick to watching meoshit like Sonico or Chuuni or SakuraTrick.
Stop surround yourself with shit, then you wont have to complain about shit anymore.

It already is. Report, ignore, hide, move on.

Moe is used in relation to yourself and only yourself

No. It means what it means and idiots like you use it wrong. That doesn't mean the meaning of the word has evolved; it just means you're an idiot.

You do realize there's more than one person correcting you here right? Moe does not mean what you think it means. I'm sorry that being wrong upsets you so much that you have to be so defensive. I'm sorry that this little lesson has ruined your fivershit thread. But you're still wrong and you should stop using moe wrong because it makes you look like a retarded newfag.

There's more than one retard in this world.

It's a doggy dog world out there, buddy.

>>101557151
I'll be calm about it when /v/ermin stop having stupid fucking misconceptions about a different naming of the concept of attraction/appeal

It's not some foreign or unsual thing
It's just fucking seeing the appeal of a particular character
So why doesn't western media get tagged as being something akin to 'moe' (assuming some fucktard is going to use it as a genre)?

Thats right, because it doesn't fucking exist and idiots like yourself dont miss label everything in that media
>>
>>101557298
>fitting in

Explaining to you that you're misusing a term is hardly "fitting in" with /a/. If I were trying hard to fit in I'd just start spamming dubs in this thread because it's off-topic shit. Instead I've tried to turn this into a teachable moment because I noticed yet another person misusing the term 'moe.' Of course there are plenty of stupid people, but that doesn't mean you should just let people keep making stupid mistakes over and over again.
>>
>>101557228
Few things piss me off more than complete bastardisation of this term

It being used to represent anything aside from it's intended meaning makes no damn sense.
Why can't fuckers just use terms like SOL or iyashikei because they're obviously refering to that or character archetypes most prevalent in those actual styles of anime/manga

I want to tear my hair out
>>
>>101557411
Exactly, so stop being such a stickler over the definitions of words. That in itself is a retarded mistake. If you're going to attempt to "school" me in this sort of meaninglessly retarded semantics faggotry, then at least try to mask your literal (as in, not the 4chan variety) autism.

I'm sure that you get your kicks out of being an anime expert here on /a/, but a language expert you are not. So shut the fuck up.

>>101557526
Stop being a complete spastic and attempt to educate yourself slightly instead of dismissing knowledge as elitism or whatever shit your trying to pull.

People like you are the cancer killing this board, dismissive cocksuckers that spread misconception amongst further newfags.
You're obviously new as fuck if you are already misusing the term moe.
It's like we're talking to a junior highschool kid who thinks 'learning is dumb', 'I love being an unintelligent prick'.
Wallow in your retardation then you filth.
And fuck of back to /v/ while you're at it

>>101557526

What did I say that you think supports your position, I wonder?

You're using the term wrong. I've corrected you. You're only making yourself look more and more foolish by getting mad about being wrong. Moe isn't a genre. It isn't a character archetype. It isn't an art style. You can stop using it that way and stop looking like an idiot now. You're welcome. Or are you saying you already knew this and that you're just trolling by using it that way?

There we go, a complete misunderstanding of how language works, while at the same time, trying to pull off the retarded "ur a newfag xD go awa /v/". Classic.

A language evolves. How it evolves you cannot control. That is just how it works. With most anons here on /a/ using the term "incorrectly", I think it's safe to say that you're the complete spastic here who's unwilling to accept change. Does that sound like autism? Yes it does.

The board has always been shit. Deal with it or find someplace else.

>>101557763
Why are you still trying to defend the indefensible? Using words incorrectly is not the same thing as language evolving.
>>
>>101557914
That's how language evolves, yes. Just take a look at the word "faggot", which you should be intimately familiar with.

Please get yourself evaluated for autism, you might be able to make a buck or two. Seriously. It seems you have the real autism and not just the 4chan kind.

The difference here is that if you look up faggot in a dictionary you will see that it is defined as a pejorative term used to refer to a homosexual. On the other hand, moe still means what it means and is not defined as a genre, a character archetype, an art style or any of the other retarded things people misuse the term to refer to.

All this name calling really lends a lot of credence to your position. Surely no one will notice how wrong you are if you call the person who's correcting you an autistic faggot, right?
>>
>>101558216
And yet here we are, listening to you whine and cry about words and their definitions, on an anime board.

An anime board.

If that doesn't make you an autist, then I don't know what. But it's rather amusing watching you getting told from that other guy.

History. Learn it. Hint: Faggot didn't always mean what it does today.
Have fun.
>>
>>101558568
I already know that it used to mean bundle of sticks you baka. I said that the difference between faggot and moe is that faggot is officially defined in its present-day usage. Moe on the other hand is defined as a feeling, not a genre, an artstyle or anything else and using it in any other way is wrong. Using a word word is not the same thing as a word evolving. You're wrong. Deal with it.

>what do we call shitty anime then
Shitty Animeā„¢
>>
>>101558732
Are you seriously not seeing the connection?
How did we get from one to the other? No, somebody did not just up and say "hey, let's make faggot stand for something else HA!"
What happened was the word was used for shit it didn't mean. It expanded, so to speak, to include women, which only inherited some properties of a bundle of sticks and eventually homosexuals, and now, you.
Now during that time, the use of "faggot" to describe a woman would have been quite wrong. However, once enough people adopted it, the dictionary makers were forced to ascribe to the new definition, because that one had become universal. This is what's happening with "moe". The term has broadened out from just a feeling to a description of a show, an artstyle, etc, which may or even may not induce that feeling. And most people have adopted the broader definition.

It's only a matter of time before the official documents change too, like with many other loan words. Be grateful that you can witness an event in etymological history, and stop trying to stop it.

What /v/tards and crossoboarders want moe to mean is an umbrella term describing anime they are too insecure to watch so they can sound superior to other people when they use it. But that's not what it actually means so please ignore them and report their shit posts whenever you can.

Someone had the relatively fresh idea of paying someone some money to say something stupid and /a/-related in a video and then people saw it and it got run into the ground in about a day and became the epic new meme spammed everywhere as happens with everything on 4chan

So many fucking newfags
