A news about Zentai in Japan.
Academic Ikuo Daibo of Tokyo Mirai University said zentai fans seems to be groping for a different way of expressing their own identity.
“In Japan, many people feel lost; they feel unable to find their role in society,” he said.
“They have too many role models and cannot choose which one to follow.”
He said they take solace from the erasing of their outward appearances and say they believe it offers a way for people to get to know others as they are, rather than because of how they look.
“In a way, they are trying to expose their deeper self by hiding their own identity,” said Daibo. “I find it a very interesting way of communication.”
