Tycho and Gabe unleash their inner fangirls.

"Yeah, but I'm a girl. I'm supposed to swoon over gods of rock!"
Trucy Wright, Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney

A squee is the sound made by excited fangirls (or fanboys). The exact nature of what makes someone squee depends on the type of fan. Shippers squee when something comes up with their OTP. Comic fans squee when they get a new comic or model. Video Game fans squee at the announcement of a new game in their favourite series, or a new update. It can even be caused by meeting a favourite actor, actress, or other celebrity.

It is an excited expression of desire for the object that caused the squee, though not necessarily sexual desire. Can be triggered by Cuteness Proximity or And the Fandom Rejoiced.

In writing, it is often followed immediately by the emote *dies*, to imply that the user in question has suddenly fainted from euphoric overload. In Japanese, "Squee!" often translates to "Kyaa!"

Most likely a mutation of or derivation from "squeal". Possibly a Portmanteau of "squeal" and "glee". Any resemblance to Squick is (mostly) purely coincidental, but it is worth mentioning here that one person's Squee can be another person's Squick.

For the comic book, see Squee. Or, if it's the other guy named Squee, see Magic: The Gathering. For the rodent, see Myst III: Exile. And if you want the game company, add a "nix" to make Squeenix.

Compare The Knights Who Say "Squee!". A common result of a Shirtless Scene, Girl on Girl Is Hot or even Guy on Guy Is Hot.

In episode 23, the eponymous club's female patrons unleash mass quantities of Squee when they see the innocent Haruhi acting friendly with the Jerk with a Heart of Gold Casanoda. Of course, since the girls don't know the truth about Haruhi, they assume the whole thing is ripe with Ho Yay.
  • Azumanga Daioh:
    • Kaorin, regarding Miss Sakaki.

    • In a later arc...
      Rika: "Nipaa~!"
  • Used, and not in a good way, in School Mermaid by the eponymous mermaids. Not out of joy. It's all they can say.

Initially she's going along with this plan, since she wasn't planning to have sex either.
