Gyaru Wednesday Wk2

Another Wednesday is here and the gyarus are here to lighten up the mood. Since the first post in this series, quite a few people have asked me what a gyaru is, and to give a proper answer to that I’m gonna look it up in my newly purchased Otaku Encyclopedia! And this is what it says:

Gyaru (ギャル): Gals. Young Japanese women known for outrageous fashions and hanging out in Tokyo’s club districts. They have fake tans, wear short skirts, and favor accessories big on bling. They abandon traditional Japanese feminine modesty and are tough, rude, crude, and ultra-sexy. Gyaru are champions of consumption and keep in touch via communication networks on their cell phones. Most of them hang out around Center-gai street and the 109 building in Sibuya. Gyaru characters tend to pop up in anime, like Kotobuki Ran from the anime Super Gals! (2001-2002) and Keiko, the little-sister character from Genshiken (2004).

See, the Otaku Encyclopedia has already come in handy. :)

This week’s Gyaru Wednesday was made possible by: gyaru, etc, OHYEAHGYARU, alice in tokyo, GET WILD & BE SEXY!, Asian (Street) Impressions and Tokyo. Japan Times.

    Gyaru, are the top of evolution, the best of asian/Japanese girls that can be.
    Top attractive, top sexy, top hot, most faptastic, it can’t be any bether.
    If there is a heaven(there isn’t) then all girls would look like gyaru. :3
    100% seal of approval on these radiant ladies! Keep em comming Jonas!

      Haha well, as far as looks goes, you’re perfectly right. But some of them might be a bit lacking personality-wise, no discipline and bad attitude. Far from all are like that of course, but some definitely are^^

      Will keep em coming though!

      Their look is interesting, but I don’t find it particularly appealing. Perhaps what really kills it for me is the attitude that usually comes along with that sort of look in Asian women. Plus, if I wanted a blonde haired, blue eyed woman, I would get a real blonde haired, blue eyed woman.

      Really it’s all a matter of preference. Your heaven, my hell.

      I can definitely find them attractive, but the attitude kills it for me as well, not quite the girlfriend material one would be looking for. Mana Honda (bottom pic) looks amazing in my eyes though^^ Nothing wrong with a nice blonde and blue-eyed woman though (Caucasian?), if that’s your definition of “real blonde”.

      I think that most fake blondes I’ve seen of the Gyaru looks “disgustingly” fake or ugly. Though I assume the “fake” is a part of the look? Since many of them look odd in such a light hair color as well. I can’t find the eyes pretty either – such anime/manga eyes. Though I do love their style, at least some I do find very creative. :)

      I don’t fully agree, but some definitely try too hard. I doubt “fake” is a goal of theirs :P
