    I’m glad Digimon was shown in the end but was surprised wasn’t actually mentioned lol overall great video tho! This was very fun to watch 👏🏽

    BLEACH, HXH, Jujutsu Kaisen and Shaman King had the best fashion for me in Shonen Anime. For anime outside that genre, I'd say CardCaptor Sakura, Mew Mew Power, and Carole and Tuesday.

    Man, the 80-90's in Japan did really were lit. So much that still to this point, I still consider Terry Bogard and Kyou Kusanagi as my main fashion inspirations. (Just more... metalhead)

    Honestly, Shojo anime drips just as hard as Shonen. If you made a second video about anime drip, I would love to see one about shojo drip. If this was a series I would be super duper happy about that

    I tried a lot, but i can't for the hell of me understand what in all those fashion choices was bad or good, beyond the fact that in the later Yugioh sequels, the clothes people have are way more colorful than before. That's it. Is that how other people feel when i rant about lore and powers levels and logistical action and symbolic narratives?

    We have a distinct missing contender in old shounen for Beyblade G-Revolution. Tyson DRIPS late 90s-early 2000s shounen power with that denim jacket and backwards cap. Kai’s scarf? An angsty teen’s dream, especially when it flies off in the heat of top-battle. Max? Pure all American apple pie street style, and Rei maxed out his Bruce Lee power fashion style.

    to be fair, My hero characters are either entirely in their hero costume, uniform and sports uniform so the lack of focus towards their rarely seen casual style is fine and it feels more realistic tbh.

    The characters in BNHA have strong personalites and seem like they could dress accordingly. So why are their fits so dry. Yk it's bad when a 5yo has tighter fashion game than 80% of your characters 😭

    I just want to say one thing. If there is already and iconic black trenchcoat whitout a fidget spiner, you can't make the same coat be iconic to an other character. So the fidget spiner is maybe stupid. But you can't say that the newest ones are worst just because the place for the iconic simple black coat without small details was already taken by an author who wrote a story, before you (as a manga artist) were born. So, to be iconic you add something which isnt just plain void over you coat design. But ok tbh the hand spiner i pretty funny.

    Just so you know this is one of the top 3 reasons I watch your channel. You don't stick to a stock formula. You talk about weird shit like what Bulma was wearing at a given time. And I very much approve. Some of the weirder (a term I am using here as a term of endearment) videos have been my very favorite. Though the fact you don't know the theme song or the basic plot or the characters in Sailor Moon breaks my heart. It is a black spot on your record, sir.

    From what I understand, Tite Kubo is actually pronounced like it rhymes with kite (or closer to taito but yeah). His name is actually 久保 帯人; Kubo Taito I know that normally something romanized as "tite" should be pronounced tee-tay (if ti actually existed and wasn't actually chi) but "Tite" isn't a normal romanization and more a special choice by Kubo to romanize Taito as such. It's romanized that way with English pronunciation in mind. Anyway, anything saying something positive about Bleach in 2021 and not just kicking the dog is a treat in my book.

    Okay, so the fashion in the series is a little lacking, but I'd argue that the characters in BNHA have fucking awesome fashion sense in promotion art or just little sketches Horikoshi draws. It's a little sad, actually, because the man gives them some awesome outfits when he wants lol. Another part of me does kinda like their dorky clothing in the show, because I remember dressing like that as a teen lol. A lotta sweats and baggy T-Shirts. But lets not forget the true fashion icon of the series: Aizawa with his hot pink sweatpants 👌 bold look
