Mimei Sakamoto on Moe

In an article which is to be published in Shukan Bunshun, Sakamoto-sensei a talented manga artist and self-professed Otaku ordains the true meaning of moe. Ripping on the current trend of Otaku posers, losers, and pedofiles Sakamoto tears a new one to all the fanservicers out there. She goes on to comment on the current state of the industry in terms of product development and marketing along the same evangelical lines of moe madness. This article is a must read for the "true" otaku, although I'm not sure a mid-aged, once depressed, mildly talented woman with a teary-eyed story that wouldn't move a feather is really a great example herself.
