Please do tell if I actually have anything to gain by doing so.

It increases loyalty.

Serious reply: it’s just comfortable. Plus, when you wear one, you get into that wota mode as if by magic.

That’s true about the wota mode. It’s sort of like what uniforms do for athletes.

This, I think. Also, you feel glad if you see someone else besides you wearing a shirt of that less-popular member you both like.

You get into the mood and it allows you to go nuts.

I get to wear something pink, which is something I usually can’t do.

It’s like those tour shirts a lot of bands have. You’ve come all the way to the venue — why not feel a sense of unity with everyone else?

The members are happy if they see you wearing their T-shirt.

But if you wear solo T’s, won’t other members of the group act cold towards you?

Pretty much the only reaction I get from any of the other members is Kananan going “Marotesque this, Marotesque that.”

Do you ever get other wota talking to you because you’re wearing the same T-shirt?

One time, it was just me and this other guy using the toilets right before the performance was about to start. We were wearing exactly the same T-shirt so the guy laughed “hey, we’re wearing the same shirt!” (laughs)

There’s a sense of security in knowing you’re not alone.

Something you guys need remember though is that people wearing the same T-shirt as you aren’t your friends. They’re your rivals in love.

I wear mine around the house. As you buy more and more wota T’s you get less and less chances to wear all of them. It’d be a waste not to use all of them. They’re actually pretty durable, too.

I wore my oshi’s T-shirt to a company BBQ and the reaction was very positive. Everyone was all accepting of it, like “ah, so this is that thing we’ve been hearing so much about! (laughs)“

I wore my Yurunyan gym uniform to New Fes, and at the end-of-performance handshake event, Yamaki-san and Inaba-san were both like “waahh, it’s an Otomomochi!” Even Momochi herself was more hospitable towards me than usual.

I once saw a guy wearing a Momoko T-shirt on the train, and for some reason I actually felt embarrassed.

Just how amazing are the people who can wear their wota shirts of your shared oshi with pride and with nothing to hide, even in public streets or train stations? They show bravery — a kind of courage where even the helpful words of “just bring a change of clothes” lose their meaning. And they have a point: there is nothing to be ashamed about. Why? Because it’s a combat uniform.
Seeing them walk with spring in their step, brimming with confidence, they appear to me as shining rays of sunlight; like superheroes.
Thus, I made a vow to myself.
One day I shall become one of these disgusting gentlemen.
Well, the girls actually do notice the T-shirts that fans wear.
Note that this may not be a good thing. Observe:
Nakanishi: You don’t really mind when people switch oshimen, do you?
Nakajima: I don’t.
Hagiwara: I don’t mind, but when there’s someone who tells me ‘I’m only for MaiMai’ at a handshake event, and then appears at a Hello! Con wearing a different T-shirt, I’m like ‘So you’re not only for MaiMai!’
Topic: Awkward situations
Airi: I worried about a fan who suddenly stopped coming to concerts, wondering if they were unwell. But at this year’s Hello! Con, I saw them wearing an aqua T-shirt. I was like, ‘Ah, looks like they’re doing well’. It got awkward when our eyes met, so at the next Hello! Con, they had an old Suu-san towel draped around their neck.
> Airi: I worried about a fan who suddenly stopped coming to concerts, wondering if they were unwell.
That’s quite touching, actually.
Hagiwara is that way. Like a jealous lover. Or so the wota report.
That guy wearing his in that company bbq got ultra gossiped when he tirnef his back on them.
If its not cool looking and the right colour, i couldnt see me wearing it, public or private.
“Supporting” is one thing. Losing all selfrespect while sipporting is another.
Personally I want my oshi to see that I’m especially her supporter. I have more than one girl that I like, but I usually have one favourite, so I like to make them feel loved. Like with glowsticks, actually.
I guess among wota it’s usually more impressive if you collect photos, but shirts are pretty cool too (and more handy). Then again, the Cool Hello shirts look ugly.
I like the feeling of unity at an event and I also use my shirts as pyjamas after
I take pride in my shirts and will gladly rock them to concerts… Wearing them outside of a concert on the other hand might be impossible lol… Its like i dont feel like explaining over and over again to everyone what this t shirt is for or what it means then having to jusity why i listen to and support heavily these female japanese groups lol. Not worth the trouble when im not around the right crowd
