Free! Eternal Summer Outfit Appreciation: A Roundtable Discussion
↦ Episode 4 » Mikoshiba Momotarou
Mousuguame: My Momo-kun is so garish, you can’t help but love him! As you can see, he has a youthful, brash style. I’m not surprised they went with the candy citrus color scheme. The layered marinas and cargo shorts might seem like typical boy fare; however, the lines on his top are neat and his shorts are stiff and square.
My verdict: Momo is altogether put together. Bask in his blazing youth!
Otakubabe: My first impression is pretty much like you said: Youth. Lol. It is a summer anime after all, so why waste such a new, fun, and fresh character on plain clothes? :)
Chet: Indeed, Momotarou is a breath of fresh air. I personally like how his belt—which is probably woven, given how it falls—matches his shoes. It’s subtle, but it shows his attention to detail.
Mousuguame: Chet, I’m glad you brought up his belt. That reminds me of Rei’s red rope belt from season one!
Also, I have decided the white cutouts in his shoes are a classic loafer pattern. This is a Mikoshiba boy; his ladykiller instinct is on point with this one. Also, his bag style is a cross body with a wide strap, which is just manly!
Chet: Wait, are we seriously going to ignore those flamboyantly patterned shorts?! Give him five years and he’ll be Kabukichou’s number one host (…perhaps rivaling another red-haired Mikoshiba?!).
TL;DR: Momo = manly, youthful, future host/Mikorin’s rival…?
