These characters are from "Idolmaster -- Cinderella Girls", and if that's how things are in that series, I may have to watch it.
(UPDATE: Actually, I'd watch this one, too. Thanks, Craig!)

I know this will come as a shock to some of you, but there's more to life than catgirls. There are also fox girls, who are sometimes kitsune and sometimes tenko. And they're especially awesome if they have more than one tail! (Today's search term is "fox tail".)
"If you make a fool of yourself in front of a cat, he will sneer at you, if you are sober; he will leave the room if you are drunk. If you make a fool of yourself in front a dog, he will make a fool of himself, too.”-- Chuck Jones
A cat loves you for what you can give it. A dog loves you for what you are.
With a fox-head cutout instead of a cat-head cutout!
Daww... don't you feel like giving her a great big hug?more...

Today we combine two search terms, "phone mirror" and we get a lot of girls taking their own pictures in the mirror! Selfies FTW!

Today's search term is "Impossible shirt" and it touches a sore spot I've been brooding about for years. JGreely has a link on his side bar to a blog called "Boobs don't work that way" and this, in turn, is "cloth doesn't work that way."
There are two major issues here. We can call the first one the "Sternum problem". It's about the way that shirts on girls are drawn so that the cloth follows the skin all the way into the middle of the cleavage:
That's not cloth; that's paint. (Or heat-shrink plastic, ouch!) No way anything woven would do that. Even worse is when they do this with plate mail, such as Cecily Cambell in "The Sacred Blacksmith":
The purpose of a chestplate like that is to distribute the force of a blow. But with that shape, if she gets hit all the force is going to be transferred to her sternum, and it will probably be crushed -- leading to all kinds of physical problems such as bleeding in her lungs.
Fairy Tail gets this right. Erza Scarlet wears a chestplate a lot of the time, but hers is not only plausible for manufacture, it's also plausible defense:
It doesn't try to form fit her breasts; it tries to spread the force of blows. Exactly right.
The other problem with a lot of this art we can call the "Hourglass problem", dealing with extreme ranges in the "three numbers".
How can there be such a difference in diameter between the level of the breasts and the level of the waist? If it is like most T-shirts it's going to be a constant cylinder and if it's wide enough to hold that chest, it's going to hang like a sack at the waist.
Fairy Tail usually gets this one right, too. Nearly all the women in Fairy Tail have huge boobs and narrow waists, but they usually wear halter-tops or, as in this case, clothing which is obviously custom tailored. There are plausible seams in this to expand the top part without being loose around the waist.
So these two girls have both problems:
This is a particularly egregious example. The cloth not only follows the cleavage exactly, it goes under the boobs as well. There's no way that's cloth; it's another paint job.more...

Today's search term is "yandere", because everyone needs a bit of excitement in their life.
"You sent for me, sensei?"
"You sent for me, admiral?"

Today's keyword is the shortest possible: "v". I remember reading a blog entry a few years ago by a young guy who wondered, "Why are all those girls making the peace sign?" and I sighed and shook my head.
The Japanese learned that from American GI's after the war, and to the Americans it meant "V for Victory!" In the 1960's the hippies decided that it should mean "peace" as a protest against the Viet Nam war, and apparently this guy (who was probably born after 1980) learned it that way.
But to Japanese school girls, it doesn't mean either of those things. For them it means "I'm hamming it up for a camera" and that's pretty much all.

Today's search term is "American flag bikini". Turns out that this mostly resulted in characters from Kancolle, Girls Und Panzer and, oddly enough, Touhou. There's a character in Touhou who is dressed like a jester except her costume is stars and stripes, so inevitably fan artists portrayed her in a stars-and-stripes bikini, not to mention other Touhou characters.
So, on with the show.
I gather that this is BB-61 Iowa from Kancolle. Not too much of a surprise that an American capital ship would be portrayed as a big-breasted blonde.
(UPDATE: No, it's Kay from Girls und Panzer. That's a Sherman tank behind her, not the gun turret of a battleship. My mistake.)
And apparently this is USS Archerfish and USS Albacore, American fleet submarines during the war. (I don't know which is which.)

Today's search term is "wind lift", the result of a fortuitous action of the elements on a cute girl wearing a skirt.
You know, as common as this is in anime, I've never seen it in real life, and I don't know anyone who claims to have seen it. There used to be a fun-house at the Oregon State Fairground but it burned down in the 1960's. But it had a place inside it where there were air-jets in the floor being run by an employee, and if a girl in a loose dress or skirt walked over it he'd blast air and lift it. Me, I was too young then (grade school) to really appreciate it. Discounting that, I've never seen this. I guess it's one of those things like accidental-compromising-position which are common in anime because of wish fulfilment even though they never happen IRL.

Today's search term is "straw hat". (It doesn't get any more fashionable than that!)
April 21, 2016
Today's search term is "wardrobe malfunction". (Plus an ever-lengthening list of exclusions to help retain what's left of my sanity.)
