  • 01/28/17--12:38: Virgin-Killing Sweater
  • Editor’s note: Work in Progress



    About

    Virgin-Killing Sweater or Sweater That Kills Virgins (Japanese: 童貞を殺すセーター, Doutei wo Korosu Sētā), also called “That Sweater” (例のセーター, Rei no Sētā or あのセーター, Ano Sētā), are nicknames given to a halter neck sweater which features a large open back. In a similar vein to previous clothing fetish memes, it quickly became to a buzzword among Japanese Twitter users in January 2017.

    Origin

    According to Pixiv Encyclopedia[1], this term was coined in a Tweet by Japanese user @Magane4989 on January 25th, 2017.[2] Its pictures of blue and black halter neck sweaters he found are actual products by an otaku costume shop Seventy-Three in a Chinese online shopping website Taobao.[3] This tweet gained 56000 rewteets and 67000 favorites in its first 4 days.



    Translation:

    This sweater is … erotic.
    The Virgin-Killing Sweater

    Precursor

    Prior to this 2017 craze, another nickname for this kind of sweater, “Sukebe Knit” (スケベニット, lit. “Erotic Knit”), spread from Tweets by Japanese cosplayer Noraneko (のらねこ) in June-July 2016.[4][5] It hasn’t got much attention, but some amateur illustrators inspired by the sexy cosplayer had already posted dozens of illustrations to Pixiv[6] and the social networking service.[7]


    “Sukebe Knit” Tweets by Noraneko

    Spread

    Due to its catchy naming which inherited the manner from a 2015 clothing fetish trend Clothes That Kill Virgins, the allure of Virgin-Killing Sweater quickly spread on Twitter.[8] Over 300 illustrations had been posted to Pixiv[9] and Nico Nico Seiga[10] in its first weekend. And many of the artworks are reblogged onto Tumblr.[11] News outlets for this online craze for the sexy sweater were quickly published from several Japanese online gossip news media[12][13] as well as English news media The SUN.[14]

    Kano Sisters’ Participation

    On January 28th, Japanese celebrities Kyoko and Mika Kano, known collectively as Kano Sisters[15], joined onto the otaku bandwagon with a blog post of Mika wearing that kind of open back dress.[16] The sisters explained that they had been wearing that kind of sexy outfits since well before and called it as “Buttock Cleavage Dress that Even Angels Get Stunned”. This participation of sexy celebs from the outside of otaku community made a headline on online gossip news media.[17][18][19]

  • 01/29/17--01:55: Arcanine
  • About

    Arcanine was a former Media Moderator on the meme research site KnowYourMeme where he was known for having a shit ton of swaggerz and shiet.

    History

    He joined KYM on June in 2014 when he decided to join the site after a month of lurking on his PS NoGames Vita. About less than a year later he got promoted to Media Moderator on March 5th, 2015. A few months later after that he recieved user powers.

    The Great Fall

    On January 26th, 2016, a false rumor spread around KYM claiming that he had spam banned Armesi, even though he wouldn’t do such a thing. Because the average KYM user and moderator were so dimwitted to tell the difference from fact and fiction, they took the bait and harassed Arcanine about it for many weeks and months. Even Don Caldwell was that much of a dumbass to take away Arcanine’s user powers.
    After a week had passed by, the best mod on KYM who got wrongfully accused for banning Armesi got his powers back but still got harrased.

    KYM will never be the same

    Arcanine later got demodded right before the great Skeleton War began in October, due to the userbase believing he was a bad mod when he was actually a good mod instead and was the victim of framing.

    A few days after 2017 began, he and (((HolyCrapItsBob))) got into an arguement on the IRC where Bob told Arcanine to kill himself. Because the userbase was so delusional, they thought Arcanine was the one who did it so the mods decided to take away his white privilege of being a mod ever again.

    Then on January 28th of the same year and month, he left KYM to only come back equipped with a keyboard and the perk One Man Army to have his revenge via Arcanine’s Resistance Army.

    “Open to all, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, the participatory performance will be live-streamed continuously for four years, or the duration of the presidency. In this way, the mantra “HE WILLNOTDIVIDE US” acts as a show of resistance or insistence, opposition or optimism, guided by the spirit of each individual participant and the community."

    Spread

    That day, Twitter user @daisyrdley[2] tweeted photos LaBeouf and Jaden Smith at the livestream location, garnering upwards of 124,150 likes and 61,800 retweets within 72 hours (shown below).
