Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In recent years, Japanese animation works (ANIME) draw much attention as one of major digital contents in Japan. Particularly, a certain group of animation works called “Moe-ANIME” goes on increasing. In addition, to use a term of Moe, which means an inner situation where someone sets especial affections on the favorite cartoon character, is getting popular socially. Development of Moe-rerated product and its market becomes very active. Now it’s a key issue to meet the needs that we can easily search our favorite ANIME characters in a large database according to the individual criteria of Moe. In this paper, we present a feature extraction and Moe-factor evaluation method for a face image of Moe-ANIME cartoon characters. As an application of Moe feature analysis, we show an image data retrieval system for Moe-ANIME character image database.
