RedRoses: If you'd like a special word for it, guys with glasses are sometimes referred to as "megane-kun" (as opposed to girls with glasses, meganekko). :)
Wait a momento. So what's meganedanshi then? I've heard that meant boy glasses fetish but what can I trust on the internet. >_> I've definitely heard meganekko before.

Yup, Louise definitely fits my moe. I didn't know there had been further seasons. Now I gotta dig up more fansubs. . .

Moe to me is anything that inspires a "I want to protect you!" feeling in me (what the article / Gia says, I guess).

There are no character traits, that by themselves, do so, for me, so it is totally a case-by-case evaluation. For example, Shana (from Shakugan no Shana) is quite capable by herself, yet I would like to protect her anyway. None of the Haruhi characters produce that in me (nor Louise, which has been mentioned by some people).

Cute / clumsy characters are not moe for me by default (not even characters called "moe blobs" by their fans / haters). (I'm trying to remember other examples... but I can't remember any... ^_^; There aren't that many characters that I want to protect, I think...)

I always thought moe was a "cute young girl that was clumsy and sometime wares glasses" AKA Miyuki Takara (Lucky Star) or Mikuru Asahina (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya). But I don't prfur moe girls I like my asertive women like Yoko Littner( Gurren Lagann), Haruko Haruhara (FLCL) and YĆ«ko Ichihara(xxxholic).

Wiki on the term moe:

Then needs to be a scale of moe"ness" I'll see if I can find one. If not give me some time I'll make one
Edit: Make one

RedRoses: Same thing. "Danshi" means boy or boys; -kun is just a usually male-specfic honorific. So either or. :)
