Um... interesting.
This is your Japanese anime culture lesson of the day!


from a post in the gamefaqs anime board:

From: Masaaki 'newtype' Tanaka
RE: What's the deal with striped panties?

Stripped panties have always been a good thing..but that strip has to be horizontal. not vertical. vertical strips doesn't show as much shadow bumps and curve as horizontal strips does.. another words, there's more depth defined in horizontal lines than vertical lines.. we like curves.. horizontal am good.

panties with little pink bow on the front, panties with strawberry patterns, poka dot patterns, random little characters, are still considered nice but we don't see that lot now days because it was overly used back in late 80's.. so there was a movement to go simple white around mid 90's and also to cut budget cost.. believe it or not, these damn otaku animators would contemplate on where the pattern should be placed and what kind of shadow it should be used to define those areas.. there was too much color theory to be considered that took way too much time and budget cost so they left it white.. clean and simple yet provocative

artist now days has forgotten the power of patterned panties and you don't seem them often. but when you do see one.. it's like enlightnment all over again... but when you start seeing too often, you lost the appreciation towards those patterened panties and the cycle continues.. it's a dilemma we all have to face..

Even though I have nothing to say I HAVE to post in a thread that has this much "cultural value".

I will quote this in real life, be certain of it.

Wow, those Japanese animators are geniuses! It's all about the shadows and supplementing the form of the buttocks. I can't believe I didn't realize it before. I've gained a new respect for anime girls' panties and all the thought and hard work that goes into drawing them.
