About ISML

The International Saimoe League (ISML) is an organization whose mission includes
1. Increasing exposure of Japanese animation and pop culture to the public,
2. Discovering which anime character is the most moe as decided by majority rule,
3. Maintaining a community and network of anime enthusiasts, and
4. Planning and executing events responsibly, ethically, and efficiently.

ISML hosts an annual tournament that calls on anime fans worldwide to decide which anime girl stands as the most moe of all time. Voting events are held several times a week in a league of round-robin matches that lasts nearly a full year.
