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
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?
are you trying to give him a heartattack? that's like telling a kid santa isnt real
What type is used these days?
who the fuck has a name like that?
also, seconding op's question
>no anime is complete without it
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.
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.
hmm i think i've not seen them
got pictures of those?
THEY HAVE AN OPENING IN THE FRONT?!
but why isn't her name written in katakana then?
and why is she wearing a swimsuit?
i think that was the swimsuit episode
Because she had her masters of tactical warfare brainstorm on what swimsuit would be the most flattering to entice MC.
>but why isn't her name written in katakana then?
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.
That segment was pretty damn funny.
The show is definitely worth a watch for anyone that hasn't seen it.
I understand now
good gracious, I live less than an hour away from that guy
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
Why would you shift it in the first place?
> good gracious, I live less than an hour away from that guy
decided based on the study done by the imperial committee on outdoor apparel
Names written in hiragana makes it look childish, like a kindergartner or an elementary schooler.
>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.
Did...did he say the opening is for people with large penises?
I fapped to this scene btw. With a condom on.
Shit nigga, that's their charm point.
nah, just a swissfag who lives in bern
I remember once looking up melonpan's address, lives in köniz and works as an accountant or something
I don't remember the joke buildup. Probably boner related, image was just relevant to the discussion at hand.
>Did...did he say the opening is for people with large penises?
>not knowing german
Please do not ask /jp/.
> fapping with a condom
that seems even less appropriate for someone who's supposed to be the supreme empress of some holy empire
but still, making their representative look that unprofessional seems like a failure to me
She is a tsundere genius archtype so its suppose to be funny she fucked up.
>Implying i like having a messy sticky hand when i'm done
I never seen the point of those things, how on earth can they pee from there?
Then again, I know shit about female anatomy, so maybe its possible.
>but still, making their representative look that unprofessional seems like a failure to me
You must be under the impression that the show actually takes itself seriously. It's supposed to be silly.
Just pee in the pool, it will be fine. Don't even need to use the hole.
Her advisors are lolicons who don't bother telling her about the origins of that swimsuit.
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
now there's yet another show on my backlog
I think you have the wrong idea.
If it is just one big one piece. How are you even suppose to put it on in the first place?
Is this a thing where everyone is pretending to be retarded and allowing this? Or just trying to collectively troll the few not in on the joke? Because this shit is cancerous as fuck.
I was upset when I learned they had that opening in the front. Anime lied.
One of the best shows from last season.
If you don't have a waifu enjoy your Mysuel.
>spreading otaku culture to a fantasy world
>give them SYD
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.
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?
you are half right
> that seems even less appropriate for someone who's supposed to be the supreme empress of some holy empire
Hiragana markings is actually appropriate. It accentuates empress' feminimity.
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.
hiragana is cute
Girl stuff is hard.
Now you're just doing it to piss people of right?
>Hiragana markings is actually appropriate. It accentuates empress' feminimity.
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
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?
I was referencing the Japanese wikipedia article. Sorry for not immediately switching back to school swimsuit, your honor.
You shouldn't need to switch back you MAL piece of shit
You sure are mad.
I think he meant seitakoi yakuindomo, the anime
although i don't understand either how it exactly fits the context
The joke in >>100301737 is a joke from the actual SYD manga/anime.
Because they are talking about in Outbreak Company a joke from the Outbreak Company version of SYD
What, I should've just copy-pasted the info in Japanese?
People don't like it when you poison the board and community. And?
I understand now
it's been far too long since I've watched SYD
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.
Ah, I still haven't gotten around to watching it, so I wasn't aware of the joke. It was still pretty funny without context, though.
/a/ - Lolicon Sukumizu Research
There is no reason to get mad just because someone used romaji, oniichan.
Yeah, that's the one that's a lolicon. He keeps suggesting the sukumizu, and the rest keep ignoring him. Then he tricks them into drawing the perfect swimsuit, which turns out to be a sukumizu.
Do girls feel good when there constantly is water flowing around their special place?
Because they always do in eromanga
They are important subjects to know about.
>abloo bloo bloo my gaiafag shit wont fly here
Either that or actually translate it.
I'm guessing Yes, if they're already in the mood.
you don't have to be here if you don't like it
Petralka is the main reason why I watched this show. Her circle of expert lolicon gentlemen are damn amusing to watch as well.
Yes I do
exactly. anime only uses this shit for middle-aged virgin pandering. which describes most of japan's population.
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.
I watched it because the MC's favorite anime is Madoka and he has a delicious Half-Elf Maido.
>I've heard rumors about some of them doing lewd things with the running water from bath faucets
> implying you can't do that as a man
it feels pretty great, you should really try it
Fucking swiss people, god.
No arguments here. Carry on, /a/. I'm taking notes for...research purposes.
So, someone post a picture of the newtype
Can't you read?
Man that sure is a hell of a picture
random result from google for sukumizu
Like this one.
Of course, orders of magnitude less sexy.
A bath faucet seems kind of impractical, but yeah, it works great with a movable showerhead
Why do those goddamn Swiss people always sound so gay when they talk?
if you're only here to bitch about that, you might also just take your leave
>Why do those goddamn Swiss people always sound so gay when they talk?
we normally don't talk like that
he's just speaking high german with a very strong swiss accent, most swiss don't even have anything close to such an accent when speaking high german
and when we speak swiss german, there's no chance you'll even understand anything if you're not a swiss native or you haven't lived here for a long time
He didn't trick them. They ignored him because he was showing child swimsuits and they wanted something adult for Petrarca as to not upset her.
>it has an opening i dont know what its for it might be for big penises but i have no clue
Eh, more exposed skin...isn't that sexier?
Sometimes less is more.
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.
Back to school anon.
It's all about the skirt flap. The horizontal line made by the seam accentuates the hips nicely.
The extra dark reflective material on the hips and butt also adds highlights to the entire butt.
interesting, thanks for the info
Now in the modern times here's the way -kanas are used post WW2.
- 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
- foreign words
- (not always... but it does occur) a substitute to kanji for boys
Hiragana also exclusively for okurigana.
Number 1 fetish right there
We need more animes with lolis wearing sukumizu
I want to marry Petralka.
She is so goddamn cute and her personality is the best.
dang, forgot about that...
but that's like for children's books
katakana reading for kanji seem to be a bit more fashionable in manga now...and pretty much standard when reading newspapers about japan's neighboring leaders
okuirgana != furigana
You're thinking of furigana.
Okurigana is the kana that follows kanji to conjugate or complete a word. Like the い in 良い
dang forgot about that...
but yeah... back then that was all katakana.... like that Emperor's surrender speech as recent as 69 yrs ago
and not a single one tried to answer OP's question (below)
>in Japan, is sukumizu issued by school and is individually tailored for unique fit
>something that female students buy & pick off the shelves and just pick age + S/M/L size?
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
