Joint Stockings Are Eerie

joint-stockings-are-creeping-me-out-20203-1309986702-9As androids/dolls/CG figures become more lifelike, flesh-and-blood humans may desire to head in the other direction. Girls (and boys) can now pick up chic joint stockings to give themselves the look of a robot/figurine attempting to mimic a human being. Asiajin provides some explanation and unsettling photos:

Kyutai Kansetsu Sutokkingu (Spherical Joint Stocking) is a coterie stocking sold at Bungaku Furima (literature flea-market), a dojinshi sale dedicated for literature-related things only, by circle Ojosama Gakkou Shojo Bu (preppie school girls section). The stocking has globe joint painted on knees, to make your leg like real figure.

The stockings, 2,000 yen(US$25) seems sold out on their online shop, currently on order.

But why? I guess some people might love figures too much so that now they want to become like that. It is interesting because those joints originally showed their incompleteness of mimicking human beings.

    Lol. The West is trying hard to understand the East. It’s like kids in grade school gossiping about the kids on the other side of the playground who they don’t quite understand. Yes, it looks like the Japanese really have a robot fetish.

    I was asking myself why until I realized it was from Japan. Now it makes sense.

    Those will be so cool for costume making.  I wonder if they have matching sleeves?

      I’m totally with you. Those look awesome.

      But maybe that’s because deep down inside I’m a theater dork who’s still into industrial-goth despite it having become unfashionable more than a decade ago.

      No lie, I’m going to see about getting a pair tomorrow.

    If Japan put as much effort into solving the world’s problems as they waste pursuing bullcrap like human-like robots, animated porn, and women speaking in high squeaky voices, maybe I’d be impressed. Instead they’re just pursuing greater irrelevance through their desperate masturbatory pursuits. This is what happens when an entire society is too socially awkward to get laid.

      Lighten up ignoramus.  This product is sold by a private company to a very small clientele.  If these prove that the Japanese are a race of sexual perverts, then the sale of play stripper poles and pre-teen thongs proves that all Americans are pedophiles.  I wish Americans would put as much effort into solving world problems rather than masturbating over pre-teen girls.
