Hiiii everyboodyyyy! Cherry Girls shopgirl(boy), Rio here♥
Today’s finally the start of Comiket (at the time of writing anyway)! Come see us at the Big Sight ok? ♥♥♥
Mmmmm…which one should I wear…
Maybe I should just stick with the orthodox kind…
But the striped panties that I always wear is too boring……
“You’re sure up late trying hard.
It’s not healthy to think too hard about something you know.”
Uweeeh, but but~~!
My teacher’s finally coming tomorrow, but I can’t decide which panties to wear. Tomo-nii, help me decide~~…
“…Are you planning to show off your underwear to your teacher?”
My teacher isn’t the kind of person to get excited about that!
…But but, a maiden’s supposed to know what to wear underneath western styled clothes right?♥
Since you don’t understand, you’ll never snag a boy you know?
“Maiden…well, I’ll just leave it at that.
—— Anyway, I’ve never thought about snagging anything.
If you want that kind of advice, why don’t you go tell Yuki?”
Booo—…Yuki-nii is Yuki-nii you know?
He’ll say, “This doesn’t mean I agree to your going out with a boy. I’ll support you, but that’s as far as I’ll go.”
…or something like that, so he wouldn’t help me pick out any underwear!
“Hmmm——that does sound like him.
Alright, I’ll help you out so show me what you’ve got on.”
Yaaay! Then here lookie look Tomo-nii.
Here’s the first one, the pretty☆string panties♥
“It’s definitely cute, but it doesn’t give off any different impression than usual. And if the string comes undone during work it’ll be a big problem.”
I, I guess you’re right…
The~n, how about these frilly lowleg panties??
……Yaa♥ It’s so small it feels like I’m gonna spill out♥♥
“What’s…wait I’d better not ask.
Visually speaking this looks better, but——it’s inappropriate to call them “lowleg.”
Eh? These aren’t called lowlegs?
“Shorts and panties that are worn low on the hip are naturally called ‘lowrise,’ but the term “lowleg” for these has spread only within the doujin industry and moe media and nowhere else.”
Ehhhhh, is that true!?
“——Also, it’s not just underwear, but other kinds of bottomwear that ride low on the hip are all lumped together and all categorized as “lowrise.”
“Lowrise” is a word that comes up when talking about things designed to ride low on the hip, but it’s not a characteristic noun like “T-back” or “G-string” are.
Then then, don’t these panties have a name?
These ecchi panties just like those Strike Something girls wear that show off the butt!?
“It’d be correct to call these lowrise shorts, but…even then, they’re pretty extreme and wouldn’t be considered normal.
This kind of clothing is what’s called ‘scanty’ in Japan, and is a pretty rare sight.
——First of all, what those girls wear in that anime aren’t supposed to be panties.”
Oh! Tomo-nii, you sure know a lot about weird stuff~…
You don’t even wear any panties!
“…more importantly, where did you get those panties? You didn’t get a hold of another strange mail order catalog again did you?”
Mm-mm, I got these from Momma.
When I told her that the person I like would be coming, she said “Well then, you’ll have to put on that fighting spirit♥’ ♥♥♥”
“She’s the same as always…
——hey, what’s this label say?”
Label? Lemme see lemme see…
hey, Nao-nii’s name is written here….!!!!
“…Did Nao-nii wear these when he was about your age…?
Come to think of it, I think I heard him say something like ‘I stopped right when my butt got out of shape’ before…”
So hey aren’t these hand me down panties…!?
I really love Momma, but she’s a bit carefree…she’s just like Nao-nii.
“…If you can’t wear them, then I guess that’s too bad——
Maybe I’ll sell these to Yuki.”
No no as a person that’s a terrible thing to do~~~!!!
The next update (Comic and Column 4-2) will be on Friday, 8/29.
Look forward to it♥
