An in-depth exploration of all things moe, with great insight into the history of the moe boom and the evolution of the genre
This book is quite an eye opener that helped me understand that I barely scratched the surface with regards to what people like about Japanese pop culture.
Patrick Galbraith, author of several books about anime and the people who love it, including The Otaku Encyclopedia and Otaku Spaces, is out with a new book called The Moe Manifesto, an in-depth look at just what this whole moe thing is all about. In a wide-ranging interview, we spoke to Galbraith why he decided to write the book, how he went about it, and what the heck moe really means.
Between them, author and publisher have made that great rarity: a serious book that wears its scholarship as lightly as a bunch of balloons and makes its content accessible, enjoyable and instructive all at once. You will learn from The Moe Manifesto, but you’ll do it through being thoroughly entertained.
Whether you’re on the negative or positive side concerning moe, the opinions expressed in The Moe Manifesto should challenge us all and spark new debate. Moe is nothing if not a provocative topic.
