We can think of some reasons for this…
Anime should be consistent with Manga to some extent. And the mangaka (especially men) refer to fashion magazines, looking for trendy, beautiful and somewhat easy to draw clothes for the female characters. Also, I don’t think it would be wrong to say that women will have a better idea of what goes well with female characters. So be on the safe side.
The male characters don’t really have a choice. There can be shirts, t-shirts, pants, jeans, and those famous but consistent school uniforms.
In Japan, people are expected to live in a society where there are predefined but unspoken rules about dress unlike in the west. They pride themselves on their consistency and commonality [school uniforms].
Dress codes for each setting, such as uniforms for schools, suits for the office, etc. don’t leave many options to experiment with.
Anime Industry Level
People in the anime industry usually have tighter deadlines, more work, and less budget. Thus, these factors also limit the scope of clothing variation. You can figure this out by watching Naruto or DBZ where some scenes look amateurish or poorly done due to the above related factors. If you are a fan of cosplay we suggest an anime merchandise showcase
First, Anime Merch (Japanese Style) has become a genre brand and is considered an icon among anime lovers. Anime series, movies and characters are sold, collected or imitated in the form of elaborate clothing for mouse pads, figurines and cosplay accessories.
Indeed, anime is one of the biggest trends right now. Millions of people around the world are happily immersing themselves in their favorite anime shows and movies, which you can watch online for free. Originating in Japan, today the anime is loved all over the world. As such, you will see many different types of anime merchandise everywhere you go.
Some online stores offer you the best derivative products. From backpacks to T-shirts, range of products will definitely make you very happy. All products are made from durable materials to stand the test of time and are also elegantly designed.
The role of the character also plays a major role. Like you’d expect a ninja to wear some sort of shinobi robe and a schoolboy to wear a uniform.
In special story events, you can see variations in clothing, which brings more attention to the characters and ultimately the anime itself. It can’t be done if we see these characters in different clothes every time. These FanArts are there for a reason.
Although it is not wise to generalize all anime and manga in the same category.
