moe

adjective; folk etymology
Eliciting viewer to cheer on a young, innocent, female anime character. Anime slang for young female anime characters who appeal to the male audience. These female characters are sometimes very attractive, but they have a particular personality trait that elicits sympathy from viewer. The “moe” character is oftentimes oblivious to the evils around and prone to accidents. Over the course of the series, the character matures and learns that not everyone in the world is nice, but still shows compassion to her enemies. However, at the end of the day, the character is still very innocent and clumsy, and thus did not deviate much from her original starting point. Nevertheless, that very slight deviation accounts for the “budding” of her character, but she never reaches full maturity either.
 
I’ve heard reports [Shakugan no Shana] is actually a moe comedy.
Etymology : From Japanese moe, (萌え) 'sprouting, budding’
