Quick question...

You all have seen (what I call) the flour-sack hat which Chiriri in Bottle Fairy and the "Uguuu" girl in Kanon wear.

What's the name of that thing? Do gals actually wear it?

Hmm not sure what you are talking about. Do you mean the hat she is wearing in this picture? One more thing, her name is Ayu not "Uguuuuu" girl. :)

I really don't know the answer to your question, but I guess some people wear it.

I just remember the uguu. :) And looking at the URL of the image above, it seems the person who put the image on the web thought that was more memorable too. :D

I seem to have gotten a lot of "I dunno's", and a number of people are looking at this thread. :) I guess there are more people than me Curious about this hat.

At the risk of getting people mad at me, I don't like the hat. I can't say why, I think it looks stupid. :(

Um... that hat Ayu wears if I recall correctly was a pair of boxers (maybe I'm being delirious again ^^;). She wears it because they cut her hair too short when she got out of the hospital

It look sort of like a hat with cat ears to me. I need rewatch Kanon again. :)

Correct, but I don't recall them mentioning that its... a pair of boxers?

Btw, what does Ughuuu and Auuuu means in Japanese? I don't understand Japanese, buy I don't think I have heard them being used in japanese conversataion. It's madeup by the producers isn't it?

One thing is these expressions make the characters so cute. :D

I couldn't find anything like the hat on Google... could be that I don't know what to look for.

I'm wondering if the hat was invented for Kanon, and Chiriri's hat is a coincidence. It's such a simple design, though. :(

As for the "Uguu" stuff, I think I've heard that in an anime before, though I can't remember which. :eyespin:

Uguu and Auu dont mean anything. They are made up sounds to make the characters sound cute.

Yeah you heard that a lot in animes like Chobits, Angelic Layer, CCSakura and a whole bunch of other animes. It's just to make the female characters more adorable.

there is no name for that hat...it's just a girl's hat that is somewhat popular in Japan.

Those hats have a vague resemblance to something a jester would wear. :shrug:

Well anyway. Babies with hats are just wrong.

YUMERIA is scheduled to air in January.
In the anime, the hat design will be changed a little.

I'm starting to think (based on kiyone's response) that Chiriri's hat is a toned-down version of the jester's cap. Ayu's might be even more simplified, though I remember she had to arrange it in order to get the cat-ear look.

kj1980 has seen this things in RL?

walk around in Shibuya in Tokyo, and you see some girls wearing these hats.

But then you also get to see a lot of them at Ariake Big Sight on a certain date in the summer and winter...but that's out of the question ^^;
