The way many use the words “moe” and “moeblob” as just a catch-all term to describe anything they hate, is wholly incorrect. When people make the term mean anything the want, and change the definition on a constant basis, it then becomes meaningless.
The truth of the matter is that Moe is anything which ignites an intense and personal passion and/or interest.It can be anything, however the term “Moe character” is acceptable. The longer phrase would be “characters most likely to induce a person’s Moe”. A “Moe character” would contain traits that are more likely to induce a person’s Moe, i.e. “Moe traits”. Things like these would be the “Dere” archtypes, silent types, dojikko, maids, etc, as previously mentioned by Actar. The term “Moeblob” however seems to be used in nothing more than a derogatory manner.
But no matter if there are “Moe Characters” who have one or more traits that are widely agreed to spark that intense passion or interest, the fact of the matter is that the feelings of Moe will ultimately always be subjective. You have felt feelings of Moe, as it is a natural extension of our human ability to love. As said previous, Moe can be anywhere, and it can do anything. Also as previously said, all characters on this list have traits that are widely agreed upon to be Moe, or traits that spark the feelings of intense passion or interest more often than not
Also, I fail to understand how this list shows a diminished popularity of K-ON. Both Yui and Azusa got into the top 10, and Azusa got 2nd place.

@VZ Hey VZ. Atarashi Ako is on the top of this list because of a joke regarding how she plays Mahjong. She uses a lot of quick to build, small scoring hands and wins just by the sheer number of hands she plays. These quick, low-scoring hands are thought of as cheap, and therefore it’s a joke amongst 2ch that she herself is “cheap.” A silly reason for a silly list I suppose.

Well fansubbers claim that this show is a nightmare to sub, which I can see as it is very based in wordplay jokes and cultural satire. But hey, at least in ep.9 I was able to tell that they got in a joke at the Sea Shepherd’s expense, so I am a happy man.

- Tokyo MX: “Our AKB48 Anime Was Shameful”:
I don’t give a damn what they have to say about AKB0048. Anime is first and foremost, entertainment. You are free to acomplish other things along the way, ask the big questions, explore the human condition and all those deep things we all ponder at some point along with making something entertaining. However if you make an Anime, or any form of fiction, that just does those things whilst forgetting to entertain, you have inexorably lost your way and have forgotten the basic foundation of …
- Little Busters = JC Staff: “All Otaku Have Been Betrayed!”:
Ugh….. Why JC Staff? It’s not like they are totally unable to produce great shows, and it’s not as if they are a horrible studio, but they are wildly inconsistent. You never know if you’re gonna get the next Railgun or the next Hidan no Aria with them. The quality of their work varies wildly, and it fluctuates a little too often for me to put any large deal of trust in them. However, even at their best, JC Staff are still nowhere near as good as KyoAni when it comes to Animation. Really only …
