Now Viewing: zettai_ryouiki

Tag type: General



Zettai ryouiki (絶対領域, lit. "absolute territory") is the area of bare skin seen between a skirt and thighhighs. To qualify for the tag, the skirt should fall naturally down the leg, if the skirt is skirt-lifted up or otherwise out of place, the image probably doesn't qualify for the tag. Example characters include Toosaka_Rin, Momose_Kurumi and Mayura.

The term itself originates from Neon_Genesis_Evangelion, although it had none of the current connotations in the anime. The modern usage of zettai ryouiki originates from the creator of a desktop mascot application when he used the term on his blog in reference to Mayura.

On Gelbooru, zettai ryouiki does not apply to characters that wear shorts but may apply to characters wearing dresses.
