She needs some stockings/leggings or her poor legs will freeze up.

That's a really beautiful picture of Homura. Smile
Too bad her legs would end up catching frostbite as a result of being exposed to the bitter cold.

It's the way it is:

  • I know that Japanese school uniforms involve very short pleated skirts for the girls and they're not allowed to wear tights because my school (in England) has an exchange program with a Japanese school and I got to know one of the girls last year, who told me how much happier she was in my country because our skirts are longer and the winter isn't nearly so cold. She said that in Japan, even if tights were allowed, no girl would wear them because it was a matter of honour to make out that they didn't notice the cold and wanted to dress that way (including shortening the hems or rolling up their skirts) and that this is quite hard for them because not only is it colder outside than here but the classrooms often don't have heating.
    This year we've got another girl over from a different school because the exchange school she was supposed to go to wouldn't take her for some reason. She said that at her school, the girls were allowed to bring blankets to school to cover their legs in the classrooms, and almost all of them used these. She brought one to our school and walked around with it for a couple of days but didn't use it because nobody else had one (not surprisingly!).
    From what the other girl said, about Japanese girls not wanting people to think they notice the cold on their legs, I'm surprised that girls there would use such a thing. Or maybe it's just a fad/fashion at that one school, or for this year?






There is no winter fashion for the girls, short skirts at school in all the seasons
Everybody else doing it; can't be the one standing out, disturbing the wa.

It'd be nice if those girls could have those skirt pants.

Yeah, that's totally normal, in fact the "weirdest" part is probably that the coat might be a little light. But the lack of pants, yep, ALL OVER Tokyo.

Short skirt without tights in winter... I'd be surprised if feminists haven't cried blood for this. Forget honor, they're throwing out common sense for ridiculous conformity.

Unless all of the girls are trying to be like these guys:
