Mur Expression Origins
By June 16, 2012, someone posted a video file on Niconico with a character from the adult film “Babylon Stage 27 Labyrinth of Temptation” which was released on July 20, 1999.
The Character was called “Miura” (みうら) and as he has the first letter M in his name, He was called “MUR” by the Japanese Roman pinyin.
At this point, there was no connection with a cat meme at all.
Mur Cat Origins
According to existing internet data, somewhere in 2009, the Chinese-speaking community had spread the cat photo over imageboards and forums which has similar to Miura expression. No information about it’s the origin of who exactly posted the first photo.
On 2 November 2013, Niconico user “Minamoto Fran” uploaded a video with a modified and distorted picture of this cat and MUR (Miura) character, accenting on the ideal similarity of these two beings and their expressions.
Mental insufficiency God blessing as has never before.
Video put two perfect imbecile beings together to create an ideal meme. At this point, the “MUR Cat” name gained a strong foothold for the Niconico community.
