Moe is a huge cultural phenomenon and one of the driving forces behind the enormous success of Japanese anime and manga-not just in Japan but now thro ughout the world. In Japan, avid fans of manga comics, anime films and video games use the te rm Moe to refer to the strong sense of emotional attachment they feel for t heir favorite characters. These fans have a powerful desire to protect and nurture the youthful, beautiful and innocent characters they adore-like Sag isawa Moe in Dinosaur Planet and Tomoe Hotaru in Sailor Moon. They create t heir own websites, characters, stories, discussion groups, toys and games b ased on the original manga and anime roles. Author Patrick Galbraith is the world's acknowledged expert on Moe and a jo urnalist based in Tokyo.

He reveals key moments in the development of Moe, and current and future trends in the spread of Moe works and characters from Japan to other parts of the world. The Moe Manifesto provides an insider's look at the earliest Moe character.
