Missing Nipples Syndrome. It afflicts most bishounen.

Hm, to be honest something about this video is so very awkward... these guys seem too... innocently cheerful... yeah, like I'm watching moe moe K-On girls skipping around in man suits!

Bathing suits from before the 1950s and pale-skinned nerd boys would disagree with that blanket statement. Or you could be a victim of your mother's nerdiness and horrid fashion sense and not realize until you're 11 that you shouldn't be swimming with a shirt on. Not that I would know anything about that....
:lol: :lol: :lol:
But there's nothing wrong with swimming in a shirt! It means you don't have to use as much sun screen! It's cost-effective!

XD (Best post ever) I know, right?

It must really be hard to draw nipples, you know, they just MUST BE complicated and HARD, it even makes me scared of drawing them now XD (No just kidding, my bishounen are immune to such diseases 8D). Or maybe people think guys without nipples are sexy? I don't know, but I'm pretty sure that's not the case XD.

Let us have a moment of silence for all the missing nipples of the anime/manga world.

You know, that was my first reaction as well - that this was some sort of practical joke or social commentary, by taking the sort of fanservice that is common in anime and genderswapping it.
But there's nothing wrong with swimming in a shirt! It means you don't have to use as much sun screen! It's cost-effective!
Plus, it hides the fact that you don't have a navel.

Though many employees of the company are females, so it's natural they want to make an anime for yaoi fan girls.
Too bad it's just a commercial, but judgin from the crowd reaction, hopefully something will come out of this. Though I really don't know how swimming will make a good story ... one match only last a few minutes and there seems no strategy involved, the one who paddles harder won XD. Maybe it will work if it focus more on the daily life of the swimming club members instead of the swimming competition though.

You can always draw it, I think waterproof ink is already invented in this age :D

Well...at least their chins aren't like this:

That would definitely cut steel. :lol:

LOL. I admit, I make this offense a lot in my sketches, but then again, I never drew nipples on my female characters either!
It's all thanks to my Life Drawing professor who wanted perfect-looking nipples in all our nude drawings...that was painful lol...

Oh my, it spread even here, the thing that did that:

LOL! I don't know what to think about it to be honest, I just know that I really like their animation! *A*

And I'd suggest people watch the studio's other commercials as well, they have some pretty amazing ideas and concepts, not just swimming pretty boys. XD

That's a photoshop, right?

Please tell me that is a photoshop and it isn't seriously the anime's real quality.

I showed this to my friend who does competitive swimming, and he can't stop telling me how swimmers aren't that cut.

Edit: I want this to be a actual anime. But think how much money they're putting on the line to produce it.

As much as Solunar was able to provide me with a decent laugh, having the smoothest body doesn't increase underwater speed but is actually counterproductive. (To anybody who heard this enough, sorry for repointing that out.)

Self-correction: Oh wait, on second thought, competitive swimsuits are not only textured but also supposed to streamline the body. Perhaps such unnecessarily un-hydrodynamic bodily features may have an non-zero effect in critically hardcore situations.
