They are fighting terrorism with the power of cute known as moe. I think it's brilliant.

I think this could be the best way to impede the progress of ISIS...by introducing them a new cute and pacifistic character to their communications. Anime smile

I'll give you guys credit, at least ANN has the guts to call it radical Islam, certain people can't seem to bring themselves to say it.

I always wondered where this ISIS-chan thing came from. I thought it was from someone who actually liked them, but it's nice to know that it's actually from a bunch of trolls who hate ISIS like the rest of us do.

I understand there is a positive message, but please don't relate anime (and moe at that) to this...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the Japanese have little to do with Anonymous. I wouldn't be surprised if some anon saw what was going on and decided to get an op going, but to the best of my understanding, there's little crossover between the two groups.

@Pughhead:

People will give a moe anthropomorphization to anything. It makes Ebola-chan sick, but it's the way of the world.

Don't be silly Poly. Everyone on Futaba that goes by "Anonymous" is a part of the Anonymous hacker group.

Meh, until they came up with a moe version of Rambo, I'll just wait for that alleged next movie instead. Laughing
