I have owned this old RVCA shirt for nearly a decade. I have never had any clue what it means, though I suspect it is offensive or awkward (as that is what I would put on a shirt if I knew an ignorant teen was going to purchase it). Any genuine help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Since they are clipped, I can only guess.

  • The First line is probably 渋谷道玄坂に, with the first character clipped. Means "at Shibuya Doogenzaka". It's a place known for young people gathering.

  • The second line is clipped, and I can only reconstruct の快楽探し part. I don't know what was clipped off on the left side. On the right side, is probably clipped. It means "finding pleasure of ..." (... part is clipped).

  • There is something between V and C, but I cannot tell. The three characters I can recognize are , , and .

Maybe 噂 before の快楽? Looks like the right half of 噂 or 樽. – user1016 Mar 1 '12 at 22:39
