Thanks to wonders of goofy Google Translate, we can learn of Japan’s new fashion fatties in the debut/debut vs debu - pun on the japanese word for fat of the niche magazine, “la farfa.”
Why can some chubby woman be popular, while others are not?
What makes the difference?

Weekly SPA! | 2012/Mar/18
{WARNING: This link contains NSFW advertising.}
(Giga-goofy Google Translate)quoter leftIn Japan, both men and women have thought that a person cannot be both popular and fatThat may be changed with the recent launch of ‘la farfa‘ fashion magazine for larger women. In that new magazine interviewed Ms. Habayashi*, a 103kg, self-proclaimed ‘Love Counselor,’ who said that, ‘a decade ago, men who professed plump love were treated as fetishists. However, in recently men can easily say that they like a woman plumpmorequoter right


Linked to the Weekly SPA story were screenshots of a Japanese TV program showing the results of a survey of 100 people revealing that “chubby” popularity has overwhelmingly increased—88 to 12.
SPA magazine went on to say that women being, “plump, proud and popular” has become, “rampant in society” and that this could be, “evidence of reverse brainwashing by the media in recent years

    Looking at Ms. Habayashi’s photo, I’ve gotta say:
    Fucking fat and “chubby” have very different meanings.

    The more fat people there are, the higher the 好き will go up.

    I knew this skinny black guy in the Navy and he had this BIG fat bottom Japanese girlfriend that he met down in Roppongi. They were inseparable and eventually they got hitched. Go figure.

    Plus-size idol group “la BIG 3″ made a music video, and they do a lot of eating in it
    RocketNews24 |2014/09/30

    some of the lyrics of the above music video
    Plump, plump, positive!
    Hamburg, fried chicken, yakiniku,
    Pancakes, macaroons, donuts,
    Delicious, happy!
    Find happiness!

    la BIG 3 aren’t Japan’s first “plus-size” idol group: back in January, Avex put together a group that, with breathtaking self-awareness, they actually called “Chubbiness”. It’s worth pointing out, however, that Japan has one of the lowest rates of obesity in the world, and their “plus-size” models often don’t look chubby at all by western standards
    Conventional idol groups exist to sell things like records, concert tickets, and more generally the brand – merchandise, tickets to meet them at handshake events, and other products through extensive commercial tie-ins. But la BIG 3 weren’t put together by a record label. They were put together by La Farfa, the plus-size magazine which all three girls model for as dokumo – (semi-)amateur “reader models”.

    Not very brave, where’s the mizugi dance?

  11. K Says:

    Not to mention that only the pug faced one on our left (in blue?) is actually a pig. The middle one looks a healthily built Double, and while she’s not really My Style, she’s hardly fyat. The one on the other side (in Yellow) is just big, and she’d never need panties again if she let me help her work off any excess fat she might think she has.

    For those of us who like a healthy build on a girl, this reductive equation of relative size with obesity is Very Very Uncopacetic. I suppose it might even mean some native competition in my niche market.

    Japan’s pocchari trend celebrates ‘chubby’ women
    The Guardian, Monday 20 October 2014 13.12 EDT
    Japan is a country where thinness is the norm. So can a trend embracing ‘chubbiness’ help young women reject fat-shaming stereotypes?
