I think I've watched enough anime to notice that sukumizu is like an institution... no anime is complete without it.

Anyways... in Japan, is sukumizu issued by school and is individually tailored for unique fit

or

something that female students buy & pick off the shelves and just pick age + S/M/L size?
>>
oh god I want to know this too OP.

No clue, but you are aware that the type of swimsuit in your picture is no longer used, right?

No shitty otaku anime.

If you're talking about those swimsuits that had an opening in the front, they don't use that anymore, same with bloomers.
>>
>>100300369
Her full name is Petrarca An Eldant III, Supreme Empress of the Holy Eldant Empire. Her name is weird because it's a somewhat Tolkien empire where dwarves, elves, and other being like that live. It's probably not much weirder that many of the names in Lord of the Rings.

got pictures of those?

Good question. She's not a native Japanese speaker, so maybe she fucked up. The series (Outbreak Company) is about spreading Otaku Culture to the Eldant Kingdom. If I remember correctly, that was the beach episode. And her royal advisers (after a very long deliberation) decided that the sukumizu was the most suitable swimsuit for her.
>>
>>100300873
That segment was pretty damn funny.

The show is definitely worth a watch for anyone that hasn't seen it.
>>
>>100300890
I understand now

>>100300751
good gracious, I live less than an hour away from that guy

>>100300873
>>100300908
I can see how the sukumizu would suit her à la konata's special needs.

I understand how either she or her advisors would have fucked up, but one would think that they'd double check their language if they actually want to appeal to a native japanese

It's the opposite. Japan is trying to spread Otaku culture in Eldant.

>>100300751
Did...did he say the opening is for people with large penises?

>>
>>100301606
Her advisors are lolicons who don't bother telling her about the origins of that swimsuit.
>>
>>100301790
Only one of them is a lolicon. And he tricks the rest into thinking it's the best swimsuit for her. The rest were suggesting things like this

we are just discussing swimsuits and their different functional aspects, paired with their representation in modern day anime.

I don't see what your problem with that is.
>>
>>100301898
I know it is not removable and only the front opens, that's why I'm asking what's the point of that function.

Legs through leg holes, pull straps over shoulders? Sounds super hard huh?
>>
>>100301370

you are half right

>>100301606

Hiragana markings is actually appropriate. It accentuates empress' feminimity.
>>
>>100301713
How is your hand stickier than a condom?
>>
Old sukumizu - in the front, the crotch cloth is detached from the abdomen cloth. This allows for greater motion even with lower elasticity cloth. It also allows for better hydrodynamics, as water that enters from the chest area has a place to exit. The back shoulders are usually U-shaped.

New type - one piece, no skirt flap like the old style. The back shoulders are commonly racing style instead of U-shaped.

interesting

mind elaborating? I hear lots of stuff about accentuating feminity in japanese, but I never heard of that being applied to which alphabet is used
>>
>>100301856
All of them are lolicons who tries to hide that fact because they are afraid if the empress' wrath. Only one of them is the true hero. Why do you think they agreed on that design in the end?

Water flow. You know how shitty swimsuits sometimes drag in the water if there's a part that sticks out? The opening at the bottom vents water that gets in between the breasts that would otherwise slow the swimmer.

旧タイプ(旧型)
女子用の水着 旧タイプ

「学校指定水着」というものが制定された時期に開発されたもので、「スクール水着」と呼ばれるものの代表的なものの一つである。古くから存在するタイプのため「旧型スクール水着」と呼称され、それを略して「旧スク(きゅうすく)」と呼ぶ例も多い。

前身頃の股間部の布が下腹部と一体ではなく分割されており、下腹部の裏側で重ねられて筒状に縫い合わせてある。前から見るとスカートのように見えるため、「スカート型」あるいは「ダブルフロント(タイプ)」と呼称される。
その独特の形状は機能上の要求から来たものである。その理由には「伸縮性の乏しい布地でも運動時や身長の伸びに応じてある程度伸縮を許容させるため」あるいは「胸元から入る水流を股間部で逃がすため」など諸説がある。多くは背面の形状がU字型となっている。
股間部の布を下腹部ではなく、両サイドの腰部分で接合したモデルも少数存在する。
素材としてナイロンあるいはポリエステルを100%使用している物が多いため伸縮性に乏しく、生地の編み方で伸縮性を持たせるために分厚い生地になることが多い。ただし、1980年代まではワイシャツのように非常に薄く、伸縮性もほとんどないナイロン100%の生地を使用したモデルも少数存在していた。これは、1970年代半ばにポリウレタン混紡素材の水着が開発されるまで主流となっていた、競泳水着のデザインと素材を踏襲したものである。
>>

>>100302623

>>
>>100300540

>>
>>100302672

新タイプ(新型)

1980年代から主流になった型で、「旧型」と並び「スクール水着」と呼ばれるものの代表的なものの1つである。

ボトム形状は一般的なワンピース水着と同様、前部の布と後部の布が底部で縫い合わされた構造となっており、股間部が分割されていない。背面の形状はU字形だけでなく、レーサーバックと呼称されるY字形を採用した製品も多い。
下半身部の形状は競泳タイプにある程度類似するが、競泳タイプに比べ伸縮性が乏しく旧タイプとあまり変わらない素材を使用しているものも多いので、競泳タイプよりゴワゴワするものも多い。
通販カタログ誌等では「ラン型[4]」という略称で販売されていることがある。ラン型とは“ランニング型”の略で、後述の「競泳型」に対して生地が厚めで肩紐が広く、上半身部分がランニングシャツに似ていることからの命名である。

I've heard rumors about some of them doing lewd things with the running water from bath faucets. But I don't think swimming itself would be stimulating, similar to how it isn't for a guy.

Don't quote me as the authority on this, but I remember reading somewhere that back in the old old days the -kana writings were segregated... women exclusively wrote in hiragana (especially poems) and men wrote in katakana. Heck even the late emperor Hirohito's radio speech on Japan's unconditional surrender in WWII was written only in Kanji+Katakana combination.

It's all about the skirt flap. The horizontal line made by the seam accentuates the hips nicely.

>>
>>100304044
interesting, thanks for the info
>>
>>100304044
>>100304448

Now in the modern times here's the way -kanas are used post WW2.

>hiragana for:
- particles (ga/wa/wo/ni etc)
- native japanese words with no kanji equivalent
- (not always... but it does occur) a substitute to kanji for small children and female's first names

>katakana for:
- foreign words
- italics/emphasis
- (not always... but it does occur) a substitute to kanji for boys
>>

Hiragana also exclusively for okurigana.

Okurigana is the kana that follows kanji to conjugate or complete a word. Like the い in 良い

The German Wikipedia says that many Japanese swimwear manufacturers cooperate with schools to make sukumizus because it's a secure source of income. From that I deduce that the schools buy the sukumizus and distribute them to the students.

Now wonder if students get measured first before manufacturers make custom tailored sukumizu
