I think this book, while arguably not as polished as the comparable "Fruits," is really fascinating. The realistic view of these young women helps to reveal an underlying idealogy in Japanese fashion -- something niave and straightforward that I'm not accustomed to seeing in Western designer fashions. Both cultures recycle past fashions, but with such contrasting aims. These women make Vogue seem tired....

Gets in depth w/o being verbose

Ganuro Girls, basically a picture book, gets as deep as these girls are - a photo book. Not much substance here, except that this is one book packed with photos and questionnaires on these interesting Japanese girls. Some are in HS, some are in college, many answer that they will be ganguro until age 25, some are prostitutes, and how much money they had in their purses. Many recognize that this is a trend, and this is temporary identity.
