Celebrate Moe Day with MangaGamer!
by Josh Tolentino

October 10th is a special day for fans of moe and puns, because today is Moe Day! Why, you ask? Well, the Kanji characters for "October 10th" (十月十日) just so happen to line up just right to spell the Kanji character for "Moe" (萌). That makes it a perfect day to celebrate all things moe.

MangaGamer gets the idea, and is holding a "Moe Day" 24-hour sale, starting right now and ending at 11:59PM EST. They've got a raftload of their most popular visual novels and dating sims, including the Shuffle! series, Da Capo!, Kira Kira, Edelweiss, and others, all at half off. 

Check out the full list of sale titles below, or visit their site to pick up that VN you've had your eye on!
