Anime Meets Guns with “Mag Pants”

Comically named “Hardcore Tactics” is not looking for a way to get into your pants, but for a way for you to get into theirs. Their new product, dubbed “Mag Pants” (no doubt short for “Magazine Pants”) are a funny and quintessentially Japanese rip-off of the beloved original MagPul.. For those not familiar, the MagPul gave a very popular company its namesake.

Going for the distinctly non-tactical market, the Mag Pants are offered only in bright or pastel colors. Those seeking Olive Drab, Flat Dark Earth, or even the utilitarian Black should look elsewhere. Mag Pants are only available in Hot Pink, Robin’s Egg Blue, and Pure White. Despite a lack of colors, the Mag Pants do seem to like both Russian and American magazines…

Unfortunately, those seeking to get their magazines into some hot Mag Pants will be waiting for information. Using the rough Google Translate:

We are planning to make a reservation at a store handled soon. Price is currently under adjustment and not disclosed, but we will decide before reservation starts. In addition, we will update updates from time to time on this item so please check it.

Manufactured from “compatible synthetic rubber” the Mag Pants are touted to:

Let’s make your pants panty without thinking about difficult things!

    Wirty Dhore is going to get a christmas card from these guys.

    • J.T.

      Wirty was the first person I thought of when I saw these. I expect to see him with some eventually.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    “Let’s make your pants panty without thinking about difficult things!”

    I see the Rooskies are drinking bath lotion again.

    • Dougscamo

      Interesting article….interesting approach from the governments….the Czechs ban liquor and the Russians give you a tax break….

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        The last thing Putin wants is a bunch of sober Russians sitting around contemplating why everything suck so much -ss there.

        Keep em’ drunk.

        • Dougscamo

          I’ll drink to that….

          • iksnilol

            DAMNIT! You’re contributing to the problem.

          • Dougscamo

            But, But….I’m ‘Murican….and never touched a drop of shaving lotion…..

          • iksnilol

            Oh yeah? Then explain this:

          • Dougscamo

            WTF??!! I didn’t say anything about mouthwash! Splitting hairs on me now!

    • That is just a poor translation. I’m only at the cusp of intermediate level. So looking at it I were to guess it means:
      “Let’s put the panties on your lover (likely talking about your rifle), without thinking about difficult things!”

  • Sigh, these are actually Mag Panties. In Japanese パンツ (pantsu in romaji) means underwear.

    • Dougscamo

      Damn straight and I don’t even speak Japanese…..

      • Unfortunately these days パンツ is a term that is WAY TOO common in anime.

        • Dougscamo

          Me, I’m an old Warner Brothers/Looney Tunes fan…BEEP, BEEP….
          Things just haven’t been the same since….and Get Off My Lawn…

    • Flounder

      My japanese is very rusty, but I was thinking exactly the same thing. I couldnt decide if TFB was trying to be not crude, or if it was an honest mistake somewhere.

      • Based on the fact that they use Mag Pants on the image, I think it is a confusion on the part of whoever created the image.

  • Bigbigpoopi

    >No shimas
    Crap. Not interested.

  • I wonder what the price will be, I might have to get these shipped with my next package of books from Japan.

    Why you ask? Well I ask why not? These will be hilarious to pass around the range.

  • Arie Heath

    For all your tactical weeb needs.

    Until this point I never had any use for a magazine pull.

    One word to this…


  • KO

    Tactical Pantsu for your MOE Raifu-chan! *Lubrication not included*

    • This deserves more up votes.

    • LCON

      Need White with blue stripes

    • Audie Bakerson

      Magpul’s handguards are the opposite of moe. If you want to see something burn up, you need the cheap, heat-shieldless handguard from a budget AR.

  • David Il

    Do they come in lace and crotchless?

  • Brett baker

    So creepy I’ll need them for all my mags.

  • Audie Bakerson

    I should get one for my AR with a J-comp and dust cover with Japanese engraved on it

  • Badwolf

    Mag panties and tactical balls. What will they think of next?

    • Dougscamo

      They already have Keymod….

    • Tuulos

      But will the panties fit on the tactical balls is the real question here.

      • Anonymoose

        Ask all the tactical traps on /k/ and twitter.

  • Keiichi

    My two favorite hobbies finally coming together? What fresh hell is this?

  • Hoplopfheil

    /k/ is gonna love these.

  • Amplified Heat

    “Popping Pmags” hereafter shall be replaced by “popping pantsu”

  • Don Ward


  • iksnilol

    For your raifu waifu? Perfect!

  • USMC03Vet

    Needs more tentacle….

  • Michael Rice

    *evil grin* Can I buy used ones? *tactical retreats*

    • mazkact

      Only from a vending machine in an airport.

      • Anonymoose

        I only ever found cigarette machines, drink machines, and gachapons with little anime toys in them. Mostly it was just cigarette machines on like every damn street corner.

        • Tuulos

          I read an article about it once, basically panties vending machines at streets are a lie. You can possibly find one in a porn store but they are rare even in those places.

          Japanese seriously love their vending machines and gachapons.

  • White American

    I prefer Mag Boxers

  • Glenn

    Oh really ? With ‘nuts’ forward grips and this what’s next ? Anatomically correct AR 15’s depending on whether you order male or female ? Puhleeeze……. some people need to grow up and get a life.

    • Tuulos

      That gave me an idea. In the spirit of the shaped AR-15 lowers, ladybits shaped lower and manbit shaped mags. For when you need to be extra questionable on the range.

  • Tyekanik

    Aww, they have different colors! I hope they have seven different ones.
