Inspired by The Female Armor Bingo, I present to you my short guide to armor bust areas, to better help you decide what to wear :P
Any resemblance to particular armors, living or dead, is purely coincidental. Well… mostly.
Edit: Here’s a follow-up picture- the butt area
Okay, this is actually what you do if you’re being sexually harassed in any kind of public space. Draw attention to it, preferably pull away and let EVERYONE know that someone is touching you. This will not only get him to get off you but he’ll definitely think about this situation next time he wants to do something like this.
Spreading the word.
My mom and I were talking about this today after hearing about a woman who was molested on a plane who said nothing until she was picked up at the airport by her parents. My mom looked at me and asked what I would do in that situation and I looked her dead in the eye and I told her “it would take me .02 seconds to realize what was going on and yell angrily, and then I would be straight on to bitch slapping him so hard he wouldn’t be able to see the punch I’d throw with the opposite hand”.
She nodded and accepted my salty language like a seasoned sailor.
I’ve had experience with this before, in Prague a group of five girls and I were followed by three men at night. After a while they started yelling at us, the most common being “how much?” Meaning how much we “cost” as prostitutes. Seeing as they weren’t going to stop, I turned on my heel, faced them (which surprised them), spat at their feet and responded with “You couldn’t afford me.” This prompted the other girls to start yelling back at them as well, starting with our spitfire Czech friend to start slinging curses in Czech as she and the rest of the girls came up beside me. Needless to say the men backed off and pretty much fled. They weren’t expecting a fight. It empowered me and encouraged the rest of the girls to yell back too.
I’ve heard that a lot of people don’t know what to do in this situation because they’ve been taught all their lives to be polite and non-aggressive. Keep your heads down or whatever.
Keep in mind that studies have shown that rapists look for victims who won’t fight back.
Remember that nobody has the right to touch you without your consent or harass you, and you have all the right to make the biggest fuss about it that you can possibly make.
Get angry. Be in command.

I’ve seen a lot of posts since I slipped back into the Reborn! fandom complaining about how there still isn’t a “second” season or a continuation of the anime or anything, and I agree, it sucks, I miss Reborn, I’d totally watch more Reborn and read more manga and love it. Do you know how many Reborn figmas I would buy if they made them? All of them. Every last one, there would be none left for you.
The thing is though that a lot of the people making these posts are the type of western anime consumers who watch illegally on fansubbing sites and read the manga exclusively online and BASICALLY, contribute zero dollars towards the series and industry itself. I’m not gonna act like I’m some kind of expert but I can recognize bullshit when I see it, and I’ve seen it.
The bottom line here is that anime is not free and if you want more Reborn, you can’t expect it to be handed to you. Instead:
- Stop watching Reborn! on fansubbing sites and youtube. There’s not even a need to do that; every episode is subbed on Crunchyroll for free. I’ve seen people advise against using Crunchyroll because waaah they have ads which is bullshit for a couple of reasons- first, a number of fansubbing sites also use videoplayers with much more annoying and obtrusive ads, second, Crunchyroll ads actually exist to contribute money towards the anime industry. Watch Reborn on Crunchyroll. Rewatch Reborn on Crunchyroll. Tell your friends to humor you and watch a random episode on Crunchyroll.
- Buy the manga. I know, it’s a fucking travesty that the whole manga hasn’t been translated yet. I’m not gonna play around like I don’t have a scanlation bookmarked. But there are 16 volumes out there in English right now which you can buy to support the series. Blow 8 bucks on a volume of Reborn. It will look satisfying on your desk.
- Make your case for more Reborn to whoever you can. When you buy anime DVD/BDs, chances are it might come with a pre-addressed postcard to the company. My Durarara BDs yesterday came with one which asked me which animes I wanted to see released on DVD. Reborn! Let these companies know that the Reborn fandom is alive and that we will support this series. No one is going to revive a dead anime, and no one is going to continue a dead anime.
- Advertise this series like you’re being paid top dollar for it. Make a bunch of obnoxious powerpoint posts, badger your friends about it, fandom bomb anime polls. Dead fandom means dead series. Fandom that won’t shut up about how much they’ll collectively spend on new season? Living series.
like again this is just. some common sense stuff. support Reborn as much as you can. I know tons of us are dirt poor but ffs it doesn’t cost you anything to watch KHR on crunchyroll instead of a fansub site. Put your backs into it and do it with your dying will and maybe, if this fandom can prove itself as a large fanbase which wants to support this series, it could someday make a comeback.
