The Newbies Guide to GAR

aka “Moar Manly Than You Will Evar Be”
by Ariolander, Hentai PhD.


The online community of anime fans has its own language of sorts with terms like Moé, Tsundere, Yandere, Trap, and Fap being thrown around with many not knowing what they are or where they come from. Some are imported from our Japanese counterparts. Some are onomatopoeia popularized by webcomics. For those who don’t know, I am sure a lot of you are wondering what these terms are, how they came about, or are a bit confused because of conflicting usage.

This guide is dedicated to ImoutoChan because you were so confused.

The Definition:

A term used towards male characters and individuals who are so overwhelmingly manly that your own masculinity is absolutely *buried*, leaving you naught but a whimpering, swooning girl-child before them.
