J-List has been selling “How to Draw” books from Japan for years, and we love the variety the books offer. There are books that help you learn how to tackle character design, how to draw different types of clothing, and even a couple of books that teach you how to draw military uniforms and tanks. There are also books on How to Draw Oppai and How to Draw Panties, because of course there are. And there the top sellers in this category. So let’s take a look at them!

How To Draw The Panties
How To Draw The Panties

First, will explore How to draw the Panties. Western panties in Japan are called “pants” in British style, but since Americans have so much trouble accepting that “pants” (to us, outer trousers worn in public) mean underwear to half the English-speaking world, a new English word was coined, pantsu (said with a Japanese accent), which describes panties in any kind of Japanese or anime settGrouping.
