Behold, Hardcore Anime Fashion

They're called Love Livers (ラブライバー or rabu raibaa). And do they ever love schoolgirl anime Love Live. They even have the fashion to prove it.

Love Live — sorry Love Live! — follows of group of students who start an idol girl group to keep their school from closing. The anime has its fans, sure, as do the smartphone and PS Vita games.

And a handful of them show their Love Live! affection by wearing a butt load of buttons, plush toys and other trinkets. The look is quite a sight to see — and quite costly. Buying all that Love Live! merch is not cheap.

The result, however, is what looks like anime armour.

But keep in mind, there is an element of tongue-in-cheek outrageousness with this fashion! It's supposed to be overdone and unabashed. That's the point.

Love Livers really started making waves online in Japan earlier this year. Recently on 2ch, it was pointed out that the anime's hardcore female fans are also getting into the fashion. Be aware that not all Love Live! fans are into this fashion — not even by a damn sight — and this is really for the most hardcore of hardcore.
