Apparently Kokanaden thinks my Cheese post was a total flop but I could argue that it is a subtle hint at the incapability of Otakus. However, that wouldn’t be ‘ninja’ enough. Not to mention the article was somehow rather averagely-received so I think I win at my bullshitting, albeit having a few who took the sarcasm seriously.
In any case, today I shall introduce the calculating of anime characters in the newly founded field of Moetronics. Moetronics involves the assimilation(I love this word) of basic electronics and your basic knowledge of the anime subject itself. This is a new concept that proves to be rather accurate in proving the outcome of anime plots involving the generic anime stereotypes. Do note that today we will only be touching on calculations based on a perfect Moe circuit, which will not exist in real-life. However, we are rather lucky to be working on a controlled environment, like a generic harem anime.
Before we get into the real stuff, let me help you revise Electrical Physics which you probably have already learnt in school.
Ohm’s Law states that V=RI where by Voltage across an element is equivalent to the product of the element’s resistance and the current passing through it.
Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law states that the sum of voltage across elements in a single mesh equates to zero. aka ∑(V in mesh) = 0.
Kirchhoff’s Current Law states that the summation of all currents entering a single node equates to zero. aka ∑(I in node) = 0. As you can easily see, Kirchhoff probably loved zeros.
One more thing to add, these laws have nothing to do with what I am about to state in this article.
Let’s look at a typical situation commonly seen in anime plots:
1. Guy is dumb.
2. Deredere girl likes him
3. Other girls who never noticed him starts liking him all of a sudden.
By converting this scenario into a Moetronic circuit we get this,
Okay let me explain the mechanics of a Dere Circuit. Deredere girls in anime usually have only one guy in mind and only have one generic kind of attitude. Thus we can assume her to be a Moetage source of dere properties (DC). The guy is usually unnoticing of her affections and goes on to have a wishy washy affair with a harem of other girls, thus we can assume him to be a parallel Moe current source. The assumption of a guy being a perfect current source in a Moe circuit is built on the notion that it’s always this useless dick who starts the stupid love relationships in anime but it is this very same person who splits his attention among all girls equally. As we understand from the current dividing concept, current is split among a parallel connection of resistors.
Let’s go on to the varying resistance in the circuit above. You only assign a parallel connected varying resistance when a rival in love is specified in the anime. With each additional parallel resistance added, the male protagonist’s love attention will be further divided up. This will more than usual lead to certain unfavourable wishy-washy story plots that make you go bankai.
Yandere circuits are basically DCs gone haywire. To easily put forward the concept in Moetronic circuitry, I shall use a diagram as shown below,
A Yandere circuit works just like a Dere circuit. It encompasses a Direct Moetage source, a killable current source, and other possible varying resistance connected in parallel to divide the current.
The differences are such that a switch is connected and the ‘x’ and ‘y’ terminals are potentially available at the yandere’s disposable. What happens when you open the switch is that the possible varying resistances connected in parallel will all be severed from the entire circuit. This is because the circuit loop with the resistances experience what we call an ‘open circuit’, whereby the current is unable to flow to the resistors but only to the DM source. A very good example of a Yandere applying this method would be Kotonoha of School Days fame. If you can’t beat them, open them up and all the sperm will go to you.
Another technique that could be used would be to connect the terminals ‘x’ and ‘y’. By connecting the terminals, you create a phenomenon we call the ‘short circuit’. When a current flows through a parallel connection, it will seek the easiest possible way to pass(read: sex) through the circuit such that the more resistance you have, the less current flows through. So if all parallel resistances are of equal resistance, the male screws them all. School Days anyone?
Anyway, when you connect a resistance-free wire in parallel to all the resistors, all the current will flow through the newly connected wire. This easy-through method is usually less attempted by Yanderes but had once been used by Kaede of Shuffle!. Sadly, she failed to short circuit the resistors, probably because the current source was gay.
The “Other-people” Theory
Usually when we watch a romance anime, we will notice that there are other couples other than the main two and these side relationships may or may not affect the main Moetronic circuitry. As the anime is always centered around the main couple and harem, we don’t really get to see what happens to this ‘other relationships’. We only see them popping up once in a while bringing along a certain level of impact on the story. We can safely say that whatever happens behind all that façade is unimportant as the only significant portion of their existence is their impact on the main subject. Thus we can easily relate this phenomenon to Thevenin/Norton’s Theory in electronics.
Thevenin proposes a “blackbox” theory. It basically states that whatever happens behind an electrical appliance is unimportant if we were to only focus on the output it generates. So any sophisticated voltage output device can be represented as a blackbox with a constant voltage source and resistance. Then came a dude named Norton who basically did a source conversion on Thevenin’s Theory and produced an exactly identical theory but using a perfect current output. Loser.
I believe many would start to see the similarities of the “Other-People” theory in Moetronics and Thevenin’s Theory in Electronics. Let’s simplify the explanation with the usage of diagrams, not graphs.
As you can see from the diagram above, we can give no flying to whatever happens in the dotted box. We don’t have to care whether the male protagonist’s acquaintance has some yaoi buttsex at home or even own his own loli farm, we could just concentrate on the output of the image he presents between the terminals ‘a’ and ‘b’ in the diagrams above and assign Moetronic circuitry elements to generate a similar output. What we are interested in is only the main frame of thought.
I shall stop here for now in order to let you all absorb all this information. In the second part of this post, I shall cover the Moetronics of a Tsundere and its relevance to electronics.
