It's Moe Day, celebrate it with a headphone moe gallery


Happy Monday, everyone! Or should I say, Moe-nday?

OK, I apologize for that, but bad puns don't change the fact that today is Moe Day! How do we know that, you ask? It's Moe Day because some kanji otaku noticed that the radicals of the character for "moe" (萌) can be separated in to the ones for October 10th (十日十月). As punning is practically an art form in Glorious Nippon, one cannot but declare today to be Moe Day!

And in celebration, we bring you a moe gallery. But this time we won't be sticking to the most well-worn moe characteristics, like twin-tails or cat ears or Absolute Territory. Instead we give you something a tiny bit more obscure, one that both fills the two essential traits of what makes a moe trait a moe trait: the singularity of it (an obsession with real-life models of headphones), and the ability to subject it to intense commodification (allowing otaku to buy those high-end, expensive headphones).

Behold, Headphone Moe! It is GLORIO.
