A newspaper is recruiting writers by asking whether they can give three reasons as to why the above character isn’t moe.
Those capable of giving the “right” answer could find themselves with a chance of landing a position at the Kobe Shimbun as an online contributor, although due to government “job creation” conditions attached to the post they have to be unemployed to begin with.
Fortunately there are plenty of unemployed otaku on 2ch ready to offer opinions:
“Because it’s rubbish. As a result it doesn’t look cute.”
“The eyes are too big, the character is too blue, and it looks like a crude rip off of Hatsune Miku.”
“The colours are dull and too uniform, there’s no life to the eyes and the pose is weird.”
“The drawing is rough, I’m sure I’ve seen it somewhere before, and it’s all blue.”
“The moetards aren’t going to shut up about this. Nicely done, Kobe Shimbun.”
[Innumerable opinions follow, almost all criticising some combination of rough drawing, excessive blueness, huge eyes, obvious Miku similiarities and awkward posing.]
“Give three reasons why this character is cute.”
“The situation, her blushing and the fact she is wearing nothing but an open shirt.”
“Bed, Y-shirt, breasts.”
“Cute, breasts, I’m hard.”
[Thread denizens decide to take matters into their own hands:]
“You managed to turn it into an ordinary moe character – you guys are amazing…”
