奇声萌え[kisei moe]

January 11, 2008 at 4:54 am (otaku word)

  

 うぐぅ, why haven’t I made a post on this so far? This is such a remarkable genre of 萌え[moe], though. If you watch any bishoujo anime, listen to your favorite girl carefully. Does she happen to give an odd voice before or after she says something? And does it turn you on somehow? If yes, you would have a 奇声萌え[kisei-moe]. 奇声[kisei] means an odd voice such as キーッ[kiiiiii] or ギャーッ[gyaaaaa](sounds like a baby’s screaming).

 Having said that, maybe those recent kiseis are getting more strange. Let’s look at some example. I shall list some of them I can think of now;

a. ムキャーッ[mukyaaaa], ギャボッ[gyabo]; Nodame from Nodame Cantabile.

b. ガォ[gao]; Misuzu from Air.

c. うぐぅ[ugh]; Ayuayu from Kanon.

d. あうぅ[auu]; Makoto from Kanon. OMG, the more I heard this, the more I cried!

e. にょろ~[nyoro~]; Tsuruya-san from the Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi.

f. にゅ[nyu], にょ[nyo]; Di Gi Charat.

 As for e and f, I assume kisei might be preferable when it is uttered with no other speech. I mean, uttering にゅ~or にょ~ is better than saying like もうダメにゅ~疲れたにょ~[mou dame nyu~ tsukareta nyo~]. Same goes to shokotan-go. She usually says 行ってきた [ittekitao] or ~した[…shitao]. This  doesn’t seem to count kisei. I feel this kind of uttering has a name…Darn it, I forgot.

    The Nodame Cantabile character book has more of her kiseis. XD Mukyaa– and Gyabou– are her most popular ones. She also has Hauu–, Uho-, Mukyuu, etc. XDD

    Here’s an extra trivia. Her kiseis mean something! For example, gyabou is often used for something with a negative connotation. On the other hand, Mukyaa is a general term and is convenient when you don’t have anything to say and you wish to lighten up your mood. lol. There’s more. I should prolly upload it in my nodame website. ^^;;

    Speaking off, since you describe it in such a way that “If you hear it, it turns you on.” I wonder if Chiaki-sama gets turned on when he hears Nodame say gyabou. XD

    Wow I learned something new again from you. I was thinking of “gema” which I also saw in di gi charat before. X3

    Oh, I love kisei moe then ^^
    I love Misuzu’s “gao” and “nihaha” it makes me want to hug her XD
    But I think I only likes those who are not too repetitive (Ayu speaks uguu almost once in every minute >_> kinda hurt my ear, lol)

    But lately I’m more into oujo-sama phrase or dialect which ended with ” …desu wa”, you know, like how when Shinku (Rozen Maiden) speak ^^

    khursten: Haha, Nodame’s kisei surely portrays her mood. 🙂 Chiaki-sama might want to hear her kiseis, that’s why he hits her…tabun ne?

    A long time ago, there was the anime おぼっちゃまくん where you can hear a lot of kiseis from the protagonist. Each of his kisei quite shows his mood;

    a. くりくり[kurikuri]; merry, fine
    b. へぽーん[hepo-n]; shocked, surprised
    c. しぎゃぴー[shigyapi-]; terrorised, scared
    d. ひーこらひーこらばひんばひん[hi-korahi-korabahinbahin]; tired, weary
    e. へけけ[hekeke]; funny

    Neohybrid_kai: I wonder how this kind of kisei get translated in the sub version.

    … to oomoi? …kutteyo! …shite oshimai! OMG, I think I should make a post on this. Thanks for the tip! :))

    Ah! khursten! I’ve been trying to make a list of all the kisei that Nodame uses. Could you by chance email that to me? airgeadach@yahoo.com

    Thanks! ^___^

    I have a 奇声萌え! But it is very quiet, so that no body hears it. But if you listen carefully to me, if I think something is funny, you could hear a little “shi-shi-shi.” If something bothers me, I will express “merf.” When people hear they think it’s cute, but now I have one word to describe!

    My kisei is うきゅー when I feel pityful, and どあ! is something shocking.

    These mean nothing.><
