What is the difference between the Angel area and the Light Blue area?

The light blue and angel areas started as a subculture fashion, and were originally a subculture fashion genre characterized by unique designs. However, nowadays, if light blue is used, it is considered to be in the light blue area. Casual lolita fashion such as light blue dresses and head dresses, landmine fashion with less darkness, and mass-produced designs are increasingly being called "light blue area" if they are light blue.



The terms "light blue neighborhood" and "shopkeeper neighborhood" are used almost interchangeably.

The basic fashion color is light blue and white, but the angels are a genre that emphasizes transparency even more, and wear cute, ephemeral clothes based on the same light blue color. While the light blue community is more subculture-oriented and has a lot of jersey and street styles, the angels choose transparent colors such as all-white dresses and pale gray.

The boundary between the real world and the online world is unclear for Generation Z. They are said to be a generation that cherishes what they like while moving back and forth between the real world and the online world. Recently, the rapid growth of VTubers (VTubers), which can be seen not only on the web but also on TV and in video advertisements around town, has been a major factor.

It is said that wearing them has started as a way to encourage the fans of their favorite idols, as there are more and more creators, such as new VTubes like Hololive that are active in the metaverse world, and YouTubers and Instagrammers who create fans through the videos they make. Many YouTubers' fashion styles are futuristic, such as futuristic anime and Y3K.

Y2K, which was popular in the 2000s, is a type of fashion that tends to have a dark and rock-like image, but in the light blue area of ​​Y3K and among shopkeepers, it has a slightly dangerous impression, but it is a dreamy world view of clothes that expresses the transience and unique sensibilities of teenagers and people in their twenties.

Even so, throughout history, much art has been born from religion, and prayers have been offered to praise God and to obtain spiritual peace, but in modern society, what supports the hearts of many people is not religion, but the so-called Otaku culture.

Manga, anime, idols, Vocaloid, Vtubers, etc.

In modern society, otaku culture in a broad sense supports many people more than "spiritual" or "self-development". Each fan becomes a fan through some kind of "emotion" and feels "sacred" in the work.

It may be that such a background gave rise to the cultures of the Light Blue Neighborhood and the Angel Neighborhood.
