Uraharajuku, fashion, and blogging for Crunchyroll (again)

It’s rare to find a series that focuses on fashion beyond a unified aesthetic and looks at current trends, especially when it comes to the ephemeral nature of Japanese street fashion. However, URAHARA, despite a few flaws in visual direction and dialogue, tackles just that in a way that, even if unintended, is interesting in context of the current Tokyo street fashion climate.

With this post, I’d also like to announce my return to the Crunchyroll features team. You can find my first post on URAHARA and the current climate of Harajuku street fashion here.

Like last year when I blogged Orange and Kiznaiver, I won’t be putting up posts here announcing my Crunchyroll articles, unless I receive overwhelming feedback requesting this.

Thank you!

  1. Happy to know you’re back writing for Crunchyroll. Enjoyed you explaining how popular Harajuku once was, and how it’s changed based a bit on how the show talks about it and the current state in the past few years in Japan. Did it make you want to check out the manga, or you plan on sticking with just the anime, at least for now?
