Moe book

A moe book (萌え本) is a type of instructional book using bishōjo characters for tutorial purposes, with some illustrated in comic book format.

A close American counterpart would be the M16 instruction manual issued during Vietnam War .


The oldest known moe book was the Copyright and legal guide for computer user (コンピュータユーザのための著作権&法律ガイド), published in 2002-9.

In Moeru Eitango Moetan, published in 2003-11, full visual was added. English words examples are heavily inspired by ACG, resulting in over 200,000 books sold.

Later, Shuwa System, Eagle Publishing joined the moe book business.

In 2006-2, Enterbrain published Moeken, which explicitly targeted fans of moe. Also, Ikaros started to publish moe books.
