Graduation Day At This Japanese Art School Is Crazy Rad

Creative people being allowed to do creative things usually yields awesome. Add to that equation “Japan” and then you need to just sit back and enjoy the extra layer of fantastical insanity glaze slathered over the top.

If we’ve learned anything recently, it’s that when you give Asian students free reign to express themselves, they will damned well take it. First it was North Korean high school students being awesome in their yearbook, and now we have Japanese college students showing off their creativity on graduation day.

Granted, these ARE graduates of an art college, so it’s slightly more expected, but while American students solemnly plod across a stage, be-cap and gowned, Japanese graduates are not restricted to such uniform, and these folks have taken full advantage of the freedom; turning their celebration into, you know, a CELEBRATION!​

Oddly, my favorite. I can’t say why exactly, but the simplicity and oddity just combine to tickle my fancy.
Oh tiny Iron Man, do your repulsers shoot “Aww”s?
The true grandeur of Double Bass-san.

This costume is called “Posture Damage” or “When Commitment is Questioned”
Japanese Art School graduation or Anime-con? Stop, you’re both right.
