Netoge clothing

I'm not watching this any more but I just noticed something from RandomC's writeup of ep 2.

I remember seeing a comment once (when I was a kid) to the effect that there was no longer any article of men's clothing that women could not also wear, because fashion. Well, this episode proves that wrong.

One of the girls, who was playing a male character in the game, decided to change her avatars to female without bothering to change the character's clothing. This is what she looks like IRL:


And this is what her character looked like, as a guy:


A bit odd, but not really scandalous... for a guy. But...

If she went out in public like this, she's be arrested.

UPDATE: It reminds me of this, from Seikoku no Dragonar:

She goes out in public like that, so maybe I'm wrong.

1 I remember seeing a girl who was attending A-Kon get kicked out of a nearby food court for having too skimpy an outfit on. "You can't come in here wearing that!"

In the show, they're not changing avatars, so much as it's just the main char's perception of them - when they're acting in their "real life" character, they show up as girls. (For two of the three. Ako fundamentally doesn't have a "real life" character that's separate from her game character, which is the comedy hook of the show...)

2 My wife has that bathing suit. There's a reason any time you see a woman in it, they're posed like that: In any other posture, they fall out of it, unless they're using glue.

3 Add a tank top, halter top, or other skimpy-but-legal top under that, though, and she can wear that any time.  In fact, I'd encourage her to wear that any time.  Right, guys?

Kinda has a Leeloo (from the Fifth Element) orange-suspender outfit vibe to it.

Wait until they make an anime of Magika No Kenshi To Shoukan Maou, or as it's sometimes titled, Magika no Kenshi to Basileus.  (NSFW) And yes, she appears in public that way.
