Kagami is the Winner!
For those who do not know what that is... every year, in Japan, on the 2-CH bbs, there is a battle of the most MOE (mo-EH ... like moe .. then the letter A) anime charectors to grace the screens of Japan for the last year.... what is moe? you can look that one up... but anyhow...
SaiMoe Started in 2002... the video above shows the winners of 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005. It was originally a very un-official poll conducted in the 2CH BBS... now it's very highly structured, btu is still run in the BBS... so it's very entertaining for someone like me, who grew up with ASCII art and things of that type... it's fun like:
Here is a copy of a run in the thread -- if you look closesly you'll notice it is actually a well coregraphed mass voting by a large group of people. That must be fun to organize.
The previous winners:
2002 Sakura Kinomoto (from Cardcaptor Sakura) // Runner up: Ayumu Kasuga (aka Osaka ... from Azumanga Daiou)
2003 Riku Harada (from D.N.Angel) // Runner Up: Motoko Hara (from Gunparade March)
2004 Rosemary Applefield // Runner Up: Nadja Applefield (both from Ashita no Nadja)
2005 Nanoha Takamachi (from Nanoha series) // Runner Up Souseiseki (from Rosen Maiden)
2006 Suiseiseki (from Rosen Maiden) // Runner Up: Fate Testarossa (from Nanoha series)
2007 Rika Furude (from Higurashi) // Runner Up: Sanzenin Nagi (frm Hayate the Combat Butler)
