On the Function of Uniforms in Society by Miharusshi

Happy Monday, folks!  Today, I’m featuring a very insightful post by one of my favourite bloggers, Miharusshi, titled “Uniform:  A Multi-faceted Societal Instrument” on her blog Anime Vios.

Miharusshi posted this back in February, and I remember being impressed the first time I read it back then.  She went through all the trouble of explaining not only what she thinks is the importance of uniforms in society, but also relates it to various anime such as Haikyuu!! and Kill la Kill among others.

Additionally, she shares some of her personal experiences about wearing uniforms:

In my high school days, I was a member of the basketball girls’ team. . .those jerseys feel so special since only a few of us get to wear it. . . / It was mysterious that we felt more empowered to give it our best on the court when we were wearing our special jerseys.

She also goes an extra mile by pointing out the consequences of wearing uniforms, namely the creation of an “invisible hierarchy” by wearing different uniforms from each other.

Overall,  Miharusshi’s post about uniforms is impressive.  I think that it’s a thorough analysis of the importance and the impacts of uniforms, not only on the society as a whole, but also to the individual wearing it.  If you haven’t done so yet, I highly recommend that you check out Miharusshi’s blog Anime Vios.  

That’s all for today, folks!  Have a great week ahead.  Cheers!

  1. Thanks so much for sharing my article, Arria-chan! :3 Being reminded that I wrote such a piece, I think that I’ve scratched the surface on the importance and the rationale behind uniforms. Going into the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ may be too much, but I think I’ve done a good job on providing an introductory commentary on the subject matter. Anyway, thanks again and it’s time like this when I also feel re-energized to write something detailed again. It’s been a while after all. Gonna gather materials and let the brain do some thinking.

    P.S. Glad to know some of your readers find my article useful, too.

    1. You’re very welcome, Miharusshi. It’s one of my favourite post of yours. I think this is the most memorable, that even after a few months I still remember it. Indeed, you did a good job in providing some introductory commentary about the important functions of uniforms. I hope that you’ll regain your enthusiasm for active blogging soon. We’ll be waiting. Cheers!

  2. Thanks for sharing! She’s so right on the empowerment that uniforms give: when I wear my swim jacket and sweatpants, the maroon and white so rich and sleek, then standing with the rest of the guys, I feel more motivated to do even better out in the pool. And Kill la Kill, for an anime dedicated to the philosophy of clothing and its purposes, nails and surely dramatizes this given empowerment, but it does so I’m such an interesting morale-exploring scheme. Who knew an anime about something as simple as super uniforms would crawl its way up to my top 10!!
