Why do nips need to constantly ruin long hair with short hair?
Dropped this when they ruined my Wendy.
In battle manga is for practicality reasons (long hair isn't a very good for battling).
For Romance it's an identity thing (most of the time they grew their hair long to impress a guy so when the guy dumps her ass there's no need anymore)
For Nisio, it's probably just a fetish
Stop that. it ruins everything. You can't even call someone with short hair a "female"
I found it interesting how they gradually became her default hairdo.
If they start out with short hair they can eventually grow it into glorious long hair so I give them time.Towards the end of a series they go straight into the trash if they don't grow it out though.
It's the whole "haircut as life transition" thing. You'll see it in romance stories as a girl getting a haircut to move on after a heartbreak.
In the case of action series it becomes doubly relevant since shorter hair can also be a practical difference for the now serious character.
Essentially though, severing the hair is severing ties to the past to move forward.
I posted something similar in a Vanadis thread a few days ago.
Short hair automatically a gross.
