MOE MOE KYUN! もえもえきゅん~ Moe Nostalgia Supreme!

Oldish manga featuring characters that evoke the 萌え (moe) reaction as per the standards in the early-to-late 2000's, when the so-called moe phenomenon was at its peak in Japanese wota-culture. The titles I've listed here vary greatly in terms of genre, subject matter, and popularity, but they all hold the moe factor in common (in my opinion, anyways.) Some of the popular titles have resurfaced here in the Western side in recent years as part of an internet-born aesthetic known most commonly as "animecore."

*I've only listed manga here. Some of these series originate as light novels, or their light novel counterparts predate the manga (if they're based on anime or games, for example.) In the case of multiple manga adaptations, I've only included the earliest published title.

**If you're not familiar with the concept of "moe" or would like to learn more about it, I also recommend reading these great books on it:
