Anime Lingerie

If you watch anime long enough, your bound to run into some of the female characters running around in their underwear.

Is it just me or has anyone noticed the underwear they wear is pretty expensive if you were to go buy it in a real life store? Is this stuff cheaper in Japan?

No, its very expensive. You'll also note the high schoolers are usually going to top-end schools, have the latest cellphones, musical gear, etc. Anime isn't representative of 'real life' but of "Leave it to Beaver" fantasy upper-middle class or semi-rich life.

And let's not even try and figure out the astronomical costs of the bras for the ladies of Highschool of the Dead and other likeminded designs. Not only do their backs have to constantly hurt, but they probably have to get expensive custom made bras just to relieve some of that pain.

Sadly enough, the Highschool ladies are only slightly beyond the norm in regards to anime female figures...

That being said, this thread feels a little pointless...

I guess it is. Too bad I can't rename the subject "Expensive Stuff You Find in Anime."

Now that I think about it, the typical house in an anime and the typical room, aren't they usually potrayed bigger than real Japanese house and room? O'well.

Watch a few episodes of K-On!,!! and you'll wonder what drugs the girls traffic in the night for the gear, gadgets, clothing, and accessories they toss about.

I'm pretty sure in K-on one of the girls is actually rather rich

but hey, keep in mind who all this anime is aimed at... otakus apparently have very expensive taste

Yes, Mugi is rich...but the other 3 are portrayed as "regular peeps" which they aren't once you start pricing out the items Mio, Ritsu, and Yui have. They're definitely upscale upper middle class. Try pricing a home like Yui's place for example But that's been discussed to death in the K-On! thread so no need to repeat it here.

Well, they all got part time jobs to help pay for Yui's guitar, and she got a quite a "deal" on it because Mugi's father worked at the record store. But back on the subject, Mio's headphones she wears at home were like 300 dollar studio headphones. Maybe Ritsu has been whoring out Mio, and that is Mio is so traumatized by everything

Not really an underwear but do real Japanese teenage girls wear pantyhose to their school like Yui(K-On) and Sora(YnS) everyday?

Assuming some average japanese girl goes to a non-restrictive school they could. But I kind of doubt a school administration would forbid it regardless It would be like banning panties. Where I live girls had no problem wearing them at school. But most just do/did the obvious next step, which was to wear jeans or something similar.

I am not sure there is any need of lingerie and underwear stuff for anime characters. These stuffs are available in the market and very expensive too

If it's an ecchi show the lingerie is part of the fanservice, especially if it does not have much nudity. Otherwise the girls tend to wear just normal white pantsu.

Considering that the Tsukamoto sisters in School Rumble live by themselves in a house that would be worth in the millions of dollars given Japanese housing prices, I don't think Yakumo worries too much about the price of her bras.

I think animation staff just give characters stuff they use daily or want to have for minor things. I don't think its meant to portray an upper class lifestyle or anything, but rather a shoutout to the favorite brands and products of the team.

As for sexy lingerie. Fanservice. Who doesn't like high end underwear? I would prefer they wear nothing, but that isn't going to happen, so next best option.

On a side note:
-They are more expensive in Japan
-AKG made a killing selling them to obsessed Mio fans

I'm not sure why you're responding to a post 2 and a half years old.
