It’s been a good week for fashion-focused anime fans. First, F-LAGSTUF-F and ‘Dragon Ball Z’ teamed for a Saiyan-heavy collab and now XLARGE links with Studio Pierrot for a collaborative Yu Yu Hakusho capsule, packed with lightweight layers ideal for summer.
With a Dragon Ball Super: Broly collaboration already under its belt, XLARGE has proven its knack for blending recognizable branding with familiar anime properties and this Yu Yu Hakusho team-up doesn’t stray from convention. Series protagonists Yusuke Urameshi, Kazuma Kuwabara, Hiei and Kurama all appear throughout, with each character taking center stage on one of four graphic tee designs before uniting atop several short-sleeved camp collar shirts.
With a blend of action shots and dramatic poses informs the collection, with each character’s T-shirt available in various colors. Kuwabara and Hiei are posed for battle, blocking out the XLARGE logo while preparing to strike. Meanwhile, Yusuke and Kurama are comparatively benign; Yusuke floats in between three enormous rocks while Kurama poses atop the XLARGE logo in his demon form. Finally, three lightweight tie-dyed shirts sport co-branding atop and beneath the front chest pocket, with all four main characters assembled for action on the rear.
The collaborative Yu Yu Hakusho goods hit XLARGE’s website and Japanese stores on June 15. As of yet, no word on an Eastern release.
Elsewhere, XLARGE delivered a saturated G-SHOCK collaboration.
