SEIFUKU 1 from the series ANIKORA
The serial work entitled ANIKORA employs Japanese anime-girl-type ‘Figures.’ The figures in the first series are naked or nearly naked, but the ones in the second series wear several kinds of uniforms (including a French maid costume) that are commonly seen in Japanese animations.
I wonder why these figures in such uniforms which are special clothes made for teenage girls, in other words, molds imposed by adults for a limited time look more seductive than the figures in a state of nudity.
The animations, which create a virtual world and stimulate people’s imagination, gain popularity so much in Japan. I cannot deem this Japanese situation to be a cultural decline, but I think I need to watch the direction that people’s desire is taking.
