In the anime "Kill la Kill", Aikuro Mikisugi hates and avoids the expression "Dōtonbori robo" and requests everyone using that phrase to say "DTR" instead. Does this phrase have some hidden meaning that explains his behavior, or is it explained otherwise in canon?


Dotonbori is a street within the redlight district of Osaka that sees the highest number of prostitutes working on it. He is probably embarrassed or doesn't want DTR to be associated with Dotonbori, considering their (DTR) preference to be nude could be taken the wrong way by the average person.

  • So how does it relate to the question being asked? – nhahtdh Feb 19 '15 at 11:39
