Anime Fashion Disasters

Now, anime is filled with wacky styles, but has it ever gotten so bad where it actually impacted how you viewed a character?

I made this thread, because I suddenly remembered about Yuji (the male lead in Shana). He's mostly a standup guy, but in season 3, he looks like



And I could no longer take him seriously anymore. I mean, for anime standards, it's not really that outlandish, but the change in his look while having a point in the plot just made me laugh every time I saw him. So for better or for worse, it didn't work.

Another example would be the titular Nanoha from Nanoha StrikerS. This is a lesser case, because while she remains cool, the problem is she's still wearing those childish ribbons in her barrier form, which leads me to consistently think "Yo, you're not 10 anymore!"

Also, this seems to apply whenever someone gains an eyepatch like this guy: https://dragonaut.fandom.com/wiki/Kazuki_Tachibana though he's borderline as nothing in that show could be taken seriously. And then there's Rebuild of Evangelion.... Of course if the character started with an eyepatch, I don't seem to mind.

And then there are those arbitrary "haircut" moments that seem really overused, but I'm biased towards long hair, so YMMV.

Also, if a style change had a positive effect, feel free to bring that up too.

That sounds terrible! I'm just going to do some research to confirm.

There was some context to why Yuji ended up looking like a Chinese general. The long hair was supposed to be the "tail" that serves both defensive and offensive functions, while the armor was a separate Treasure Tool called Bakuyagai.

As for the topic, there are a lot of characters in mind, particularly people who likes belts too much.

Garcher looked good. Long/trench coats were made popular by Hei and Kirito, but then I saw this.



From then on, I was a fan of the short jacket and open skirt.
