Do you wear subtle anime related clothes? I am about to order this along with a couple of others.
let me guess how it's going to end up for you:
>what does your shirt say, anon?
>wait let me google it real quick on my phone
>so you wear a shirt that says breasts on your chest even though you're a guy?
>oh wow anon I never knew you were trans, way to go! It must have taken a lot of courage to come out like that!
Just say you got it from a friend/flea market some shit. It's not like it's a big thing. It's just a fucking shirt. Even normies aren't dumb enough to judge someone like that.
Here's a list of seigi no mikata clothing.
Why have subtle clothing when you could be a hip fashionable vaporwave fuccboi?
Oppai shirts are hilarious. If somebody doesn't think it's funny then they don't have a sense of humor. I'd get one, but since I already have oppai I think the joke doesn't quite fit.
Anime is already mainstream, just look at the recent supreme drop.
>Tfw really want Darling-Kun's Ad-Space Tshirt
>Tfw 25 Freedom Moneys for a white Tshirt with a rectangle and 7 letters
It's funny how tons of people will straight up buy hentai just because the brand is supreme.
It isn't. OPM is fucking stupid popular for whatever reason. Even a lot of my friends who only occasionally watch anime are watching it and gushing about it.
I mean, if you're just walking down the street some random person might not recognize it, but it's tits on a sweatshirt with the word "oppai" under it.
Actually, you bought a baseball shirt like Netero.
I just bought a few shirts recently. I've gotten nothing but compliments. Even if I had got no compliments I'd rather wear something I like as apposed to the old hand me down shirts I had.
Not exactly subtle, but obscure enough that normalfags won't recognize it.
I'd legit wear that attire.
>using meme anime related clothes
lol kill yourself. i'd totally use a t-shirt of my waifu though (pic related)
I never would have guessed it but yes, this is more common than you think. My 60 year old college professor was quite the fan of "Cat Planet Cuties".
If you put a target on yourself, you'll find weebs in the unlikeliest places.
subtlety is for insecure faggots, kawaiicore is where its at
I don't, but today I saw a guy hand in his paper wearing a jacket with the Survey Corps logo on his back. I guess that's not so bad since it looks somewhat cool, at least it doesn't scream 'otaku' to everybody else around.
I would get something like this minus the text.
Is this thread really that shitty that get-posting is permitted?
I've always wanted this, too bad it was an exclusive.
>but it does mark you as That Guy
Tthere are a lot of powerlevel clothes which are only recognizable if you have watched the shows.
Who the fuck even cares so much about others to judge based on a fucking t-shirt? especially if it's some harmless stuff like pic related and not "I love anime hentai ;P"
>Tthere are a lot of powerlevel clothes which are only recognizable if you have watched the shows.
I hate to say it but this is a bit delusional. And you dont have to care about looking like a weirdo, just saying subtle anime clothes dont exist
I'd kill someone to get this hoodie, it's so perfect, one day I'll somehow get one
>who implied any of this?
>Flaunt those powerlevels, anon. Maybe you'll attract a weeb girl
>guess it isnt a problem if you dont have friends to avoid you to begin with
Do you honestly think a person seeing the NERV t-shirt I posted would draw connections with anime?
I get your point, I just do not agree.
I might add that I never wear or have worn anything related to anime or japanese culture
I do not wear subtle anime clothes. I'm tacky and don't care.
There is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a dumb t-shirt related to your hobby. Pretty much everyone does it whether it's sports, motorcycles, video games, music, ect. Sure, some anime related shirts looks gaudy as hell, but that can be said about any kind of shirt.
>Do you honestly think a person seeing the NERV t-shirt I posted would draw connections with anime?
Yes. Evangelion has been Hot Topic-tier merch for a decade now. It's not some underground thing. You arent wearing a band shirt or something with a brand on it. People notice things like that
I'd like to wear subtle anime related clothes but then again I'd be putting myself in the same circle with the people at my college that blatantly wear the Shingeki scouting emblem hoody and this one kid wearing an akatsuki t shirt.
What is the point of wearing something so obscure and subtle that no one notices? I mean, aside from liking the design or series it's from because that can apply to any kind of shirt. Moreover why is this the main goal and why should it matter if people recognize it so long as the design in and of itself isn't tacky looking?
I honestly think you are the guy living in delusion, no way in hell does a shirt like that label you as "that guy" by the masses.
You have to have some really shitty friends if they overanalyze shit like that.
Then what the hell was "makes you look like a weeb" and "That Guy" bullshit about? I wasn't even talking about subtlety in that post. It's irrelevant to the point I was making.
>just saying subtle anime clothes dont exist
I have this pre-ordered. I'm fairly certain I could even wear it to an anime con without anyone recognising it.
Anime isn't one of those hobbies you flaunt; keep that crap to your self.
I don't know who is worse the weebs who shamelessly wear a shirt with an image from their favorite chink cartoon as a badge of honor, or the hipsters who ironically wear it as some fashion statement.
Fucking supreme made an anime collab, do you still think people will see you as a shut-in?
Besides, if you're /fit/ and care about your body in general people won't label you as shut-in for wearing an anime t-shirt.
Where can I buy this?
Because the tiny subset of people who share your interest will recognize it, but you won't be advertising yourself as a weeb to the general population. Although anime is becoming more mainstream, it's still often advantageous to not have everybody know you're interested in it., especially if you're over the age of 20.
>wearing anime clothes
Pic related is you, but worse.
Just buy a normal shirt you fucking sperges.
Thinking about getting those after winter:
Do they fall into cool territory or is it to weird?
i've learned the hard way to avoid people like this. It's always these people who speak loudly and proudly about DBZ powerlevels and how good Cowboy Bebop was and how all new anime is shit. Usually in groups with fatasses wearing flame shirts, never realizing how embarrassing they're being
I wear this. No one has ever noticed. You overestimate how much other people care.
then you get all the underground retards bounding up to you and slobbering all over you because you like the same things
especially on college campuses. Freshmen nerds are the worst thing for your reputation when trying not to stand out
>Hmm, I might have seen that logo somewhere before.
Best/worst case scenario is them asking you about it. Still 90% chance they won't give a fuck because you'r just some random fuck in the street
The NERV symbol is one of the most recognisable thing from NGE though, which in turns is one of the most recognisable anime.
It's on about the same level as wearing a shirt with the survey corps patch, or hidden leaf village symbol or something. Complete normalfags won't recognise it, but anyone with more than a passing familiarity with anime will know exactly what it is.
Would you wear anime related underwear? Imagine you are finally making out with a girl and she sees your underwear. Is this a market nice? Am I going to be rich?
It's already a thing, anon.
>You're the one implying wrongness
>it does mark you as That Guy
>you look like a weeb
That's bullshit mate. You're moving the goalpost on me by changing the topic from the source of negativity to the subject. Not caring is irrelevant when the supposed negative reaction is bullshit, which was my point.
The vast majority of people don't care. In fact, /a/ is about as mad as anyone will ever get over this topic, so wearing anime related clothes is probably a good way to avoid /a/spies outside.
Woah anon that was mean. You should calm down.
you're making more out of this than I implied m8
whether you think people around you are noticing or 'caring' or not
It isn't subtle. Even if people dont care that you look like a weeb, you look like a weeb to them. IE Not subtle
That's a lie and you know it. At least one in four people who see you are judging you harshly and mentally filing your image away so they can laugh about you with their friends later.
holy shit that looks so fucking hot topic tier-edgy
A-anon, did you get bullied in highschool?
It sounds kind of anecdoctal
You seem ridiculously insecure. Did you happen to eat alone at lunch during high school?
>It isn't subtle.
I already told you subtlety has nothing to do with my point.
>Even if people dont care that you look like a weeb, you look like a weeb to them.
This is the bullshit I was talking about. It's a broad statement made at all anime related clothing and it's just not true.
I'm wearing this shirt right now. No one can figure it out, even if I know they are a weeb. Plus it's comfy as fuck
Advantageous how? To keep a circle of friends or connections who dislike anime? That's all I can think of and for me personally that's the exact kind of shit I don't like to do.
My flip flops for the beach are custom print kirino
You guys are dumb fighting about looking like a weeb in public. Anime is literally normalfag fashion now.
When I was a kid, we were trying to figure out how to manipulate our ki. That and wearing anime shit in general only applies if you're a neckbeard fatty with no fashion sense whatsoever. Should be fine as long as it isn't naruto headband or something equally faggy.
>he doesn't wear gay clothing unironically
I bet you didn't buy a girl backpack to school either
I believe you are correct. However, what is the point in caring when you are likely just as guilty of doing it?
Don't fucking lie everyone judges people.
You would just be a hypocrite if you cared.
>I already told you subtlety has nothing to do with my point.
but its what im talking about. You attempting to make what I said into more is irrelevant
>It's a broad statement made at all anime related clothing and it's just not true.
If you think people can't deduce by process of elimination, then sure. You seem to think people are idiots and wont recognize nerdgear because they havent seen the specific series before. Normal clothes have standard makes that anime merchandise just doesnt always follow. And ANYthing with a logo on it or defining shapes or whatever is categorical. There's always a tell unless its purposefully hidden on the tag or something, whether you want to believe so or not.
>You wouldn't believe what I saw in the city bro: A GUY WEARING AN ANIME SHIRT HAHAHAHAHA
>HAHAHA AMAZING STORY BRO. I bet he was a virgin HAHA
My worst nightmare
This would be perfect for me since I have great moobies.
I wear his hat. No one is weeb enough to get the reference.
I want one
Then what about anime related business cards? Looks good, doesn't it? First come first serve.
I bought this Madoka shirt but no one got the reference.
People at my university just thought I supported homusexual marriage.
gotta show those normies how non-autistic i'm.
seriously nigger? evangelion is one of the most well-known anime out there, and the nerv logo is pretty iconic.
most people won't care, but if you seriously think no one will recognize it you're delusional.
No excuses. If you ain't fit you ain't legit.
nah, i'm not really weeb, what's madoka
If people know you spend your free time watching chinese cartoons, they tend to think of you as an immature and incompetent man-child. As an adult there are many situations where it matters that people take you seriously.
>To keep a circle of friends or connections who dislike anime?
Not so much friends, but acquaintances and professional contacts. Friends know you well enough to not care, but for others appearances matter.
Intentionally wearing something that has a major stigma attached to it marks you as someone who can't be trusted to conduct yourself properly in public.
Anon, how will you get it to yourself?
What proxy will you use?
I want to order it too, and get it sent to Chicago but it would be my first buyfag experience, so I am afraid as to how to go about things.
I think you misunderstand something
While this thread is not of high quality, it is not necesarily of shit quality either, a lot of anons are having nice discussions, and dumping shitty fur pictures should not ruin it.
Please take some time lurking or visit another board, as you are currently degrading the quality of the board.
Wouldn't connect this to madoka in a thousand years if I ever saw it. If somehow I got to that, I'd probably just chuckle to myself thinking I'm so weeb I see madoka in a normie's shirt than ever let in the thought that someone might be wearing a shirt with an actual reference.
Not exactly clothes but the only things which I posses that come close
I actually bought a shirt with this design on it
r8 it m8s
Jesus christ, /a/. How are you so insecure?
People judge you based on how you act, not what you wear. Like it or not, it's your personality that matters, not your fashion. If you get shunned and made fun of it's because you're an outcast and socially inept; clothes aren't going to change that.
anime apparel only looks bad if your ugly.
if your attractive no one will care, and it will make you seem 'unique' and 'interesting'.
either way, caring because someone laughs at you that you never know about or see seems incredibly retarded, its making up problems in your own head.
I've worn this several times.
Only people who've said anything were some Chinese students.
That's what I meant by contacts. It goes without saying that you dress professionally when you're meeting with these kinds of people, and I depends on your line of work but if you happen to bump into each other in the supermarket I doubt they'd actually notice your shirt let alone care unless it was something tacky. I wouldn't want a job where my hobby is a liability anyway, and I personally don't have to worry since tech fields are filled with nerds.
>People judge you based on how you act, not what you wear
I assume that we are talking about people who you know on a more personal level
First impressions are very real, everyone judges other based on how they look, it's just inevitable not to.
Acting normal can save you from wearing something related to anime, but if it's some stupid shit like MLP or hentai I doubt it's going to change people's opinion that much.
Don't get me wrong, I agree that personality is ultimately a better indicator of how people will perceive you, I just don't think you can omit first impressions.
Clothing does matter but a lot of people here are being extremely insecure. They're trying to cover up their hobby like a serial killer hides a body. If someone found out they liked anime it'd come across way weirder.
>not being absolutely jacked
Beyond a certain point of muscularity, anything you wear complements you. You could wear the more weebshit attire and it would still look good on you because YOU look good.
That's true. How you look on the surface is strongly affected by personality and attitude, though. How you sit, how you stand, whether or not you make eye contact with people, etc. will all affect first impressions, to the point where wearing a hentai shirt can make you seem like a hipster/eccentric asshole rather than a shut-in otaku, even to strangers who will only see you once.
I wear this all the time, people love it.
>Why are furfags on /a/?
I don't like them, can we make them leave?
Oh boy, another thread where nerds try to outdo each other with "muh subtlety" to the point that they pay $40 for a gray t-shirt with two orange lines across it. Because it hides your powerlevel, and that's cool.
I'm going to buy this shirt and wear it just in the hopes that it will upset one of you faggots walking the streets.
Band shirts a toque and black jeans because I'm edgy as fuck
I remember seeing a guy in this violet, collared shirt with some sort of repeating design on it.
I thought, "hey, that's a nice pattern. Is it some type of flower, or something?"
Then I looked closer.
Turns out they sell buttoned shirts of Ruri "Kuroneko" Gokou.
>tfw nee-san got me pic related
>tfw im too ashamed to wear it these days
>2016 -1 month
>NOT unironically wearing an ironic hipster kawaii aesthetic t-shirt
It shows you're on the cutting edge of fashion and subculture trends while also broadcasting who you are (a fucking weeb) and what you enjoy to your peers. It's hip and honest at the same time.
I bought this on RedBubble. Shit's cash. No reason to be embarrassed.
I have a Hook-Ups shirt but it's not weeb cuz it's a skate brand.
>Unless you're fat and or ugly then it's pretty weird.
Pretty much this. The only reason you'd need to hide your powerlevel is if you're a fat and sweaty neckbeard or if you just have a nasty face.
If you're attractive and confident in yourself, speak well, you can pretty much rock whatever shirt you want to wear. In fact a turbo-weeb shirt might even up your attractiveness. Going against social stigma against that and such is really in these days.
I bought this but was too afraid to wear it.
It's okay as long feminists doens't accuse you for objectifying women (like that ESA engineer who landed the probe on an asteroid)
I'm actually considering getting this paint job for my car.
I love this shirt but I've only worn it once because I'm scared of getting it dirty or washing out the paint. Fuck subtlety.
That's fucking awesome I want one. Lum's my waifu.
>not runnin thru the six in your itasha driftmobile
>pulling hektik skidz while eurobeat and house remixes of anime OPs blast from your window
Enjoy looking like a nigger in your Naruto-themed shitty Audi 4-door with stupid rims
Nice blogshit thread reddit, where can I subscribe?
I just wear plain t-shirts with nothing on them everywhere. What's the point of telling everyone that you like Chinese cartoons, especially if you're against social interactions in the first place?
Didn't this dude used to wear naruto head bands?
I'd only ever wear anime/manga related clothes if they were sharp or fly as fuck.
Pic fucking related, I need those jeans, jacket, and hat in my life.
By that logic furry discussion should be allowed then
Went outside with a similar hoodie to this one and nobody cared. Some people even asked if it was DBZ, and then started talking about how they liked it as a kid and whatnot.
Seriously guys, stop being so self-conscious. Unless it's some ecchi or hentai shit, nobody's gonna care.
Dunno how subtle it is but I'd probably wear this
Reminded of the time I was a pallbearer at my Grandfather's funeral. While I was carrying the coffin, my bright red clip-on tie goes flying off in the breeze.
I can only imagine how much more embarrassing it would have been if I was wearing one of those.
You do have a point. But even so, nobody's gonna care if it's something subtle about a random anime only a few people know about. Unless you're walking around with a shirt saying "watashi wa a faggot desu", there shouldn't be a problem
