Understanding Moe – Level 2

Just surfing around. I came across an article on Moe and Kawaii at
Check the article at http://doalchemy.org. I won’t pretend I actually understood everything written there. But it really is interesting. I actually have to read it a few times before I manage to grasp the author’s theory. Click on the link above and do check it out. Give it a quick read and see if it sparks anything. 🙂

“Moé is a style in that it is forever static. Contrarily, kawaii depends on fluctuation to survive.” – Alex @ http://doalchemy.org

    Thanks for the shoutout. I normally don't write in that style, but I'm glad you liked the thought experiment.

    No prob. :)It's always refreshing to give a thought on the deeper aspects of Japanese culture from a different angle.I just thought that I could also help increase awareness to that by highlighting interesting posts every now and then.
