needs to be changed to Glasses Are Geeky Plot
or Glasses Are Geeky Attitude
and nerd glasses should be about Opaque Nerdy Glasses
as it is a counterpart to Scary Shiny Glasses
And every single part of an anime girl's body and outfit is important in Visual Characterization
- Breast size,
- Panty type,
- Eye shape,
- Hair style (Odango Hair, Hime Cut, Twin Tails, Mega Tails) Or with Idiot Hair, Hair Antenna etc. Even bangs are this.
- Hair Colors (Shy Blue-Haired Girl, Rose-Haired Girl, Alien Green Hair.)
- Socks (stockings imply being extremely proper and conservative, Zettai Ryouiki is used to imply she is a newbie to love and given to Tsunderes a lot.)
- Their school uniform however is not usually, unless they go the Nonuniform Uniform route.
Glasses are no different Size and shape are important as Frames Of Reflection
covers. Larger ones imply nerdy smaller ones are used more for coolness (to generalize it's a bit more complex than that). Keitaro in Love Hina
gets a bit cooler over a Time Skip
he goes from big square ones to ones a quarter of their size that don't completely cover his eyes.
If you can't see their eyes though the glasses that's important too. If it's a shiny reflection its usually a scary moment like they are about to do something evil or they got a devious idea, Yaoi Fangirl
thinking bad thoughts, etc. sometimes done with a Glasses Push
. This can vary from on all the time to a split second. Persona 4
used this for a split second when doing an all out attack 4 people at the same time, ones on a lot are probably Stoic Spectacles
. What ever they are it's their time to (oh god) shine.
If they are eye obscuring Opaque it's an indication of nerdy, these are usually really large, and on all the time as they are probably coke bottle lenses, however it's not unheard of to have the opaque be at the whim of the author and change with the scene (Love Hina
they change frame by frame depending on if Naru is suppose to be her Super Nerd look or a Meganekko
). Opaque are occasionally used to show shock usually with Blue with Shock
or Color Failure
, and rarely with someone turned on.
is a specific Moe
element these characters are meant to be cute, a lot of the time they are used to show a bit of weakness or slight vulnerability maybe a Shrinking Violet
, Shy Blue-Haired Girl Dojikko
etc. Or just a tiny bit nerdy but not the super nerd type these are meant to be liked or lovable. Cosplay Otaku Girl
. (even Tsundere
are lovable and can be Moe
) this applies to some males too Cute Shotaro Boy
and the meek submissive Uke
The page image on Moe
right now was Haruhi's attempt to make the perfect Moe
and take pictures for her website. Her preferred elements... Short girl Meido
, with big breasts
showning some cleavage, make her cry a bit, and add glasses
and money in the bank.
