Why would people not trust Black Jack? He saves lives from impossible illnesses.

Objection! That one actually belongs on the list of Ridiculous Ninja Outfit Designs. In non-ninja mode the boots are gone and the front is closed, making for a fairly mundane school uniform.


I agree that outfit belongs in another list of post-transformation quasi-magical girls (i.e. Kill la Kill). But IMO she looks badass, she would be perfect if she had abs to show, but even as it is her outfit exudes confidence, it is saying "I am going to kick your ass" literally Anime hyper

The hideous uniforms in Anti-Magic Academy featuring characters wearing belts around their ribcages was one of the reasons I dropped that show as quickly as I did (albeit just one of several reasons).

Also, Maid-Sama. I don't know who thought lime green blazers and plaid pants would make an attractive uniform for guys, but it looks like something straight out of the 1970s, and not in a good way.

Another The List where I haven't watched anything on the list. Sad

And, Jessica is going to win in a landslide, right?

Frankly I was surprised that Kill la Kill wasn't at or near the top of the list. Some of the other Goku uniforms are pretty "ridiculous" as well. And even in its untransformed state, Senketsu still qualifies: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-z9tnGeVWG3s/UzrjN2fW2ZI/AAAAAAAAKpA/f3rK9wZcKTk/s1600/Kill+la+Kill+Ryuko+Matoi.png.

(I believe Senketsu is a more sexualized version of the uniform Saki wears in the live-action series Sukeban Deka. The first ED of Kill la Kill is an homage to the ED in Sukeban Deka.)

By comparison, Taimadō Gakuen 35 Shiken Shōtai's "chest belt" look more conservative, but here you go


Also, less for its design but more due to its concept -- Hidan no Aria's bullet-proof school uniform can be quite out there at times.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who was really turned off by the Yuru Yuri uniforms. I almost didn't even watch the show because they are so ugly, to be honest.

Oddly enough, I was initially not a fan of the Mahouka uniforms either, although they are some of my favorites now.

The reason is simple, it is obvious the list was about standard (as in everybody should/may wear them) school uniform, the senran kagura blunder no doubt clear evidence that whoever compiled the list did not saw said series, but had a pet peeve with a depiction of an alpha female Anime hyper

The petticoats under the miniskirts in Dance With Devils do look cute, but surely they're completely impractical in real life. Have we seen the main character sit down at any point in this series? Can she?

I'd also like to propose a category for climate inappropriateness. Kanon is set in winter, yet the girls' uniforms have these tiny little skirts that expose a lot of leg to the cold. Meanwhile, Air is in the witheringly hot summer, yet the girls there wear heavy black dresses over multiple layers. Both of these are from Key / Visual Arts VNs. Does Jun Maeda just not get outside much?

The uniforms in Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne are absolutely hideous. Why.

Need a doctor who you'd never trust to do a surgery?

What? Dr. Asaki Fueguchi from Tokyo Ghoul is on the list of untrusted doctors? Why? That's Hinami's dad, and from what I remember seeing in the anime/manga, he was a pretty swell guy and a decent doctor.

Now, the other doctor from the Tokyo Ghoul series would be more suitable for this list.

Either people thought he was the other doctor, or they misread the question like the people who voted for Dr. Tenma, Chopper, or Black Jack (unless they were all trolling).

I hate Persona 4's uniforms. The boys' uniforms look like someone forgot to remove the tailor's chalk marks. I also hate any uniforms with plaid pants. Skirts I can tolerate, although if I'd been forced to wear plaid skirts in school, I'd have asked to be home-schooled.

Don't be too sad. This week's only entry that's not garbage is Stellvia.
