sunglasses

at one point alpha or someone had these great sunglasses in this manga with an extra two sets of lenses at the sides: think anyone sells those in reality? it would be great to block peripheral sun. just a cool little thing i like from ykk

Yes, I've seen variants of that style in Australia several times. There's the Australian Cancer foundation that sells slip-over sunglasses that sometimes have side lenses, and there's other models that have side lenses similar to what Kokone uses.

Howdy,

They belong to Kokone.

And recently Alpha has either borrowed Kokone's, or she has picked up a a pair of her own.

i like that: in a subtle way alpha became more like kikone even tho in every other way kikone became more like alpha

However, Kokone keeps wearing her old glasses... or at least the same style, as it can be seen in chapter 129, http://www.cafealpha.org/ch129/6.html...


┬┐Who may have inherited Alpha's sunglasses?

Howdy,

It's possible that Takahiro got them. He did wear them while using Alpha's scooter.

http://ykk.misago.org/Volume7/146

Alpha got them back when she returned from her year long trip.

http://ykk.misago.org/Volume9/100

And she had them at least up to chapter 103

http://ykk.misago.org/Afternoon2003/35

However, in the first chapter that we see Alpha after Takahiro tells her that he is going away, Alpha is suddenly wearing new glasses.

http://ykk.misago.org/Afternoon2003/164

Possibly this is evidence that she gave them to Takahiro.

Best,

Dave

I had a pair that looked similar to that a long time ago. I forget the price, but it would have been less than $100.

They look like glasses with side shields. Here is a pair I found online that kind of look like Kokone's, although the sides look opaque.

And only $5.95.

These ones look like Alpha's neat original type glasses:

dDave, I'm always impressed with how quickly you can come up with page-specific examples for us. I think it's entirely possible that Alpha has two different pairs of sunglasses, depending on what is appropriate for the day.
