Shuu Sakamaki From Diabolik Lovers
- Episodes: 12
- Aired: Sep. 2013 Dec. 2013
Diabolik Lovers features a lot of unique men’s clothes considering it has so many male main characters, who are all brothers and all share the fact that they are quite stylish. However, out of all of the Sakamaki brothers, Shuu’s outfit is the most stylish choice for real life as well. He wears the same clothes throughout most of the series. While most of his brothers’ outfits are variants on their school uniform, Shuu’s is much more unique and looks very different from the rest. He is still in high school as well, so the uniform element is still present – but Shuu is the oldest of all the brothers and master of their mansion, and he dresses more maturely to represent his role.

Is Real Japanese School Life Similar To That In Anime
Anime, which derives from the English word animation, is a Japanese cartoon typically in an easily recognizable style that differs from western cartoons. Popular anime shows are subtitled or dubbed into other languages soe examples of world-famous anime would be Sailor Moon and Pokemon. Although anime comes in a huge variety of genres from drama to science-fiction to horror to fantasy, many ideas are inspired from the real world. Even in worlds that are not meant to be realistic, we see examples of real-life features, as these of course provided the inspiration. One example of real life that you can see in anime is high school. Many protagonists in anime shows are high school students and therefore some scenes take place in their place of education with fellow students.
Anime shows about schools showcase events such as having fun and chatting in the classroom, attending school clubs several times a year, doing daily chores, and spending time with friends in quiet parts of the school. Many anime shows feature high school students with scenes taking place inside their school. But how does high school life in anime reflect real life Japanese education?
Safety is one of the most important factors in Japanese schools and it is taken very seriously. This starts before the students even arrive at the school grounds. It is forbidden to drive a car to school, and students cannot even be dropped off by their parents, friends, or guardians.
Drawing An Anime Leather Jacket
To draw an anime style leather jacket on the body start by drawing its overall shape and major features such as where the zipper line and collar.
Leather is fairly rigid and even a tight jacket will somewhat conceal the shape of the body. The shoulder areas where the sleeves are stitched to the jacket will stick out be pointy while the chest area will be squeezed in. Draw accordingly.
In this example the major folds will be at the shoulder and on the inside of the elbow . There will also be some light folds at the level of the upper stomach area because the body is very slightly bent to one side.
Draw the lighter folds and the smaller parts like the details of the zipper and the pockets after you draw the major features.
