    255 starsThis was a fun and short read and the art was pretty cute but my disappointment stems from the shallow research and misinformation some misspellings as well which is very lazy All I could think of while reading was What are the sources?Some of the information was firsthand and I'm okay with that but if I can't find the information to back it up then it's useless There was also some biases in a few sections it failed to be objective in the right placesTo end this review on a positive note I discovered some great movies and bands in this book and I can't wait to spend my free time enjoying them

    Sort of interesting but overall reads like an poorly researched book report I get the impression the a lot of the info came from other people's web sites The styles as presented show the author's incomplete understanding Some things are outright wrong and the author offers thouroghly unsubtle put downs of the fashions That's strange to me

    This is an interesting look into the fashion styles of the teenagers of Tokyo though the years Previous to reading this I only knew about the Gothic Lolita and Yanki styles There were a ton of styles that ran though the years of the 1960's to the present Includes pictures of each lists of most have items for each style

    A roundup of Japanese teen girl fashion gangs from the 1970s to around 2005 For research purposes mainly though I’m also rather fascinated with the various manifestations of youth culture in Japan It's not very in depth and from what I hear it has a few accuracy issues – and in any case it's almost certainly outdated by now But it's interesting

    while it is very entertaining and the illustrations are cute the information isn't always accurate it's fun to look through but it's definitely not a good reference book for most of the fashion in it


  7. Lucy Lucy says:

    This is a decent starting point if you want to find out about Japanese fashion and subcultures but you could probably get better information from other sources The illustrations are pretty cute though

    I got this because it had a tiny write up on the ueen of the world Jun Togawa with a smashing picture of her smoking ueen of the world Jun Togawa

    A nice summary of the origin of street styles in Shibuya and Harajuku The infographic esue style is simplistic and a very uick read

    This book gives a great overview of Japanese youth fashion subcultures of the late 20th century and early 2000's; it was actually what spurred my interest in Japanese fashion I picked it up in a novelty shop thinking huh seems mildly interesting read the entire thing in a few hours fell in love with the subject and never looked back Cliché though it may be this book changed my life so I do have a great deal of sentimental attachment to itThe book is divided into chapters for each section and includes both photo and illustration references It includes some less documented subcultures such as the sukeban and nagomu as well as the well known and famous ones like gonguro and lolita Those who are already well versed in Japanese fashion may be somewhat critical of the fact that the book does seem to generalize at points but I think that's justified because the author intended the book to be read by new comers to J fashion as well It's a great place to start your interest in Japanese fashion but will provide some interest to learned scholars of Japanese fashion in that it provides plenty of interesting details such as the speculated origins of loose socks ruzu and the reaction of the Japanese media to fashion crazesMy primary complaint is that the book itself is poorly constructed; my copy's spine detached from it's cover uite uickly Also since it's a small book some of the pictures are a little hard to see
