Between the layers of clothing, sukeban girls would conceal weapons — razors, chains and anything else that one ought to take a jot more seriously than a yo-yo. Indeed, the sukeban sisterhood rivalled their male equivalents for violence and crime: facing off with rival factions, punishing girls within their own group e. They even inspired a series of exploitation-style movies, akin to the works of Russ Meyer. As the expectations for young women to marry and settle continue to be a fact of life in Japan, so too has this all-girl outlaw subculture prevailed as an alternative narrative for young women. Today, you can spot them by their embellished and embroidered jumpsuits, floral tattoos, long manicured nails and bright pink, heavily stickered bikes. That is not something I had heard. Anyone have more information on whether this is true or not? I hung out with a lot of yankii and low-level yakuza who probably had some overlap with bosozoku during my time in Japan.

In the Japanese Foreign Ministry selected the schoolgirl archetype to be one of 3 cultural ambassadors to promote Japanese youth culture to the world. While being light and entertaining to read, this book proves nonetheless an enlightening resource. Throughout the years there has been considerable evolution and change from one generation of schoolgirls to the next. Within a given schoolgirl population, there can be enclaves that differentiate themselves by appearance and disposition. Commercial enterprise also bows to the massive economic might of the schoolgirl demographic.
Anonymous asked: Why are seifuku's so adorable but western uniforms so not, even though they are essentially the same thing? The main difference between western uniforms and Japanese ones is the structure and proportion of the uniform. Movie and TV stylists actually have a very poor idea of how teen girls dress in real life- see: Mean Girls.
