Of course one of the big things about shojo manga and anime is clothes, and showing them off is a big part of a lot of series. It’s leaping out at me as especially obvious, though, in Oniisama e; more or less every time a character appears in a new outfit (once or twice an episode in the case of, for example, Nanako and Mariko) we get a pan shot of them to make sure we get the whole thing. Pan shots are also great for older anime since hoorah, saving money on animation; but it turns into a feature when it’s used like this.

(Shots pieced together from series of screencaps.)

    And if you think the anime loves to show off the characters’ clothes, just look at the original manga in all its 70s...
