Anime Glasses , also known as Scary Shiny Glasses , refer to a common trope in anime and manga to depict intelligent, plotting or villainous characters with their glasses giving off a bright reflection and obscuring their eyes. In memes , a photograph of an individual wearing a real-life replica of the glasses has been used in reference to narrow, but deep expertise. While the exact name of the first manga or anime to use the trope is unknown, some of the better-known examples of characters having their eyes fully obscured by light reflecting on their glasses include Gendo Ikari from Neon Genesis Evangelion , Aizen from Bleach and Professor Souichi Tomoe from Sailor Moon. The trope commonly indicates that the character whose eyes are obscured is either intelligent, villainous or is plotting something. Additionally, in many examples the "anime glasses" trope is accompanied by the character fixing the glasses by pressing their index finger on the bridge. Traditionally, one's eyes are an indicator of one's character.
