The Japanese habit of wearing masks during hay fever season may well be what created a fondness for such facial fashion amongst certain people, rather bizarrely resulting in the birth of ‘mask idols’.
A slightly unusual yet not altogether unappealing practice.
The burgeoning predilection for casts and covered body parts however is a little more difficult to comprehend, although admittedly there is more in the way of variety. There are injured arms.
And even both for the true cast connoisseur.
Plus for the true fanatic, there is also Kegadol, a book bursting at the steams with such stuff.
Eye-patches an added bonus.
The Kegadol magazine is priceless…I wonder where I can pick up a copy for posterity. The sub-title is bizzare even by Japanese standards, with my meager Japanese I read it as “Peach Cross First Aid Hospital Babes.” This proves there truly is something for everyone in the pr0n department.
I’ve seen this particular fetish for years, but very specifically related to one particular anime character: Ayanami Rei from Evangelion. Could she be this craze’s patient zero?
