Considering the fact that Anime is so huge in asian countries and in the world in general... the answer to the title question is... NO.

Ruining? No. Taking over? Most certainly yes. While Moe as a genre is relatively new, the kinds of stories they tell aren't necessarily. The problem isn't that we're getting Moe anime, it's that the sheer proportion of Moe anime (together with Harem anime) is way out of whack. They'd be better off with a lot more variety.
