Otaku fashion guide teaches nerds how to dress to impress

The Ex-Otaku Fashion Guide series has a new volume, the No More Mistakes Ex-Otaku Fashion Bible, due out this month. Through manga and written explanations these guides, from author Kuze, lay out the basics of fashion for beginners, showing how to buy clothing and introducing easy-to-wear items, and are specifically aimed at members of the Japanese nerd subculture. They aim to teach otaku, who are stereotypically seen as hideously unfashionable, how to dress to fit in with “regular” society. The goal isn’t to shame them or get them to quit their hobby, just to offer tips on how to present themselves in a more approachable way, and the contents are presented in a light-hearted, non-confrontational manner.
