To Heart 2: Komaki Manaka

unknown cosplay 124 from japan comiket 79I know she’s one of the girls from To Heart 2 because of her uniform, but her hairstyle is confusing me!

I want to say she’s Yuzuhara Konomi, but that character has twintails and this cosplayer looks like she only has a side ponytail. Komaki Manaka has a hairclip on that side, but her hair color is light brown. And then there’s Hanesaki Mio who is a new heroine only available in the Playstation 3 version who does but her hair up, but not when she’s no longer wearing her glasses.

Maybe I should open a poll for this instead. Thanks again to Michael for sending this in!

EDIT: Thanks to anon for confirming she is Komaki Manaka from To Heart 2!

Rurouni Kenshin Live Action 3rd Trailer

Another trailer has been released for the Rurouni Kenshin Live Action film by Warner Brothers Japan! We see a little more of Eguchi Yosuke as Saitou Hajime, but I still don't know how he's going to incorporated into the story so early on.

Not that I'm complaining, of course, but I really hope they release this soon! Thanks again to 愛子 藤原 for sharing this!

Bleach 4th Division Captain Retsu Unohana Cosplay Costume

     When it comes to Unohana cosplay, this bleach 4th Division Captian Retsu Unohana cosplay costume would be the first thing come to our mind, which looks the same as Unohana wears in bleach, composed of white cloak, black kimono, sash, socks and sandals.
As one of the oldest and most experienced bleach captains, Retsu Unohana always shows us her gentle and warm personality that augments her appearance. I think she is one of the best characters for female cosplayers, soft-speaking, polite and caring. Unohana is very slender and very youthful, with blue eyes and black hair. Usually, she wears the standard Shinigami captain uniform as the picture shows apart from using an obi instead of the normal sash. Her hair is long and is always worn as large braid in front, very elegant.
If you are just right a quite girl and have long black hair, this bleach cosplay would be your ideal choice. On my part, it is more suitable for the mature girls than the cute girls.

Angel Beats!: Iwasawa Masami

angel beats! cosplay - iwasawa masami苛立ちをどこにぶつけるか探してる間に終わる日
My days end as I'm trying to find where to vent my irritation
The sky is gray, I can't see anything beyond
常識ぶってる奴が笑ってる 次はどんな嘘を言う?
People who act like they have common sense are laughing; what kind of lie will they tell next?
それで得られたもの 大事に飾っておけるの?

How can they treasure what they obtain with those lies?
But we've got to move ahead, toward tomorrow
So I'm going to sing like this

Beautiful cosplay of one of my favorite characters from Angel Beats! It’s too bad we didn’t get to see more of her from the anime. I think I might like her a bit more that Yui. Thanks again to Lily for sending this in!

Cute Final Fantasy X Rikku Cosplay Costume

Comparing with the sexy ff x-2 Rikku outfit, composed of yellow bikini and an olive mini-skirt along with long yellow and red scarf, which is somewhat revealing, this final fantasy x cosplay costume is comparatively cute, which is on the form of sleeveless tank-top, shorts, gauntlet and arm guard, blue ribbons and pouch.
This outfit is not that popular and noticeable as the one in ff x-2, but there are also a lot of cosplay girls are fond of it. On my part, this style of clothing looks cute and simple. And it is an ideal choice for these girls don’t want to show much skin but also recognizable.

Bleach: Kyoraku Shunsui and Yadomaru Lisa

bleach cosplay - kyoraku shunsui and yadomaru lisa by ysabel

Approximately 110 years before the series began, Lisa was the Lieutenant of the 8th Division then under Captain Shunsui Kyoraku. She was known to engage in reading to the youngest female member of the 8th Division, Ise Nanao, during the first day of each month. Although she seems detached and secretive, Lisa does have a playful side similar to Kyoraku’s, as the two often shared mutual advances toward each other.

Another beautiful piece by Filipina cosplayer, Juliann Ysabel! I just wonder who the cosplayer behind Shunsui is. Thanks again for allowing me to feature this! And please visit Ysabel’s Facebook Page for more photos!

The third member of the Axis Powers, Japan was recruited by Germany and is said to be mysterious, quiet, as well as hard-working. Though he looks younger than both Italy and Germany, Japan is actually the eldest and acts like an old man.

A very handsome cosplay by Japanese cosplayer Amaha (天葉)! Although, is it appropriate to call a girl “handsome” when she is cosplaying a male character? Thanks to Maria for sending this in!

Gakuen Hetalia Girl’s School Uniform for Cosplay

Touhou Project: Flandre Scarlet 02

unknown cosplay 123 from japan comiket 79Well, she looks like Flandre Scarlet from Touhou Project to me, but the hair color’s definitely wrong. And I know Flandre has a red vest paired with her red skirt, not a full dress like this one.

I thought the Scarlets might have another sister, but I only found Flandre and Remilia. So if you guys have a better idea who she’s cosplaying as or if you agree that she’s probably Flandre, please do post your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks again to Jamie for sending this in!

EDIT: Thanks to 愛子 for confirming she's Flandre Scarlet from Touhou Project!

Fate/Extra: Saber 02

It might be a little early for our weekly Unknown Feature, but this is a crossover anyway and I thought this photo needed to be featured as soon as possible.

fate/extra cosplay - saber by alodia gosiengfiao with sarah geronimo

This was taken by Kira Hokuten during the Philippine Toy Convention 2012. I know Alodia Gosiengfiao is cosplaying Fate/Extra’s Saber, but I’m not sure who Sarah Geronimo is cosplaying as. It’s funny that from this angle, they look like sisters! I thought this was a photo of Alodia and Ashley at first until I read the description on Facebook.

Got a better idea? Thanks to Ernz for sharing this!

Full Metal Alchemist: Van Hohenheim

full metal alchemist cosplay - van hohenheim

Father to Edward and Alphonse Elric, Van Hohenheim has a keen knowledge of the alchemy processes possibly due to the fact that he is several centuries old. The means of his immortality differ between the manga and the first anime series. He left his children and his wife Trisha to travel around the country to leave shards from his Philosopher’s Stone.

This is really amazing! He looks just like the character! You might want to see the full version from Tokyo Pop. Thanks to Kondo-san for the cool photography skills!

Bleach Gin and Rangiku Cosplay

What would be the best bleach couples in your heart if ask you to make a choice? Yeah, there are really many choices in the whole story, like Ichigo and Rukia or Orihime, Uyau and Orihime, Gin and Rangiku, Hinamori and Hitsugaya and so on. In my point of view, Gin and Rangiku is pretty sweet couple, because I love the feeling and story plots between two of them. 
Hence, I am really fond of the Gin and Rangiku cosplay. It seems that there is something magical about this bleach couple cosplay. I love seeing two of them staying together.

S/mileage: Maeda Yuuka

s/mileage cosplay - maeda yuuka from comiket 79
You can probably tell by now that I’m currently sweeping through my dusty, old emails that I still haven’t gotten around to replying to after 2 years. I mean, why else would be constantly featuring cosplays from Japan Comiket 79 this month when the event was 2 years ago?

So I’ll be featuring this cute girl and pretend she’s cheering me on as I continue to go through my files. Why? Because I can! Thanks again to Michael for sending this in!

DC Comics: Supergirl

I recently received a “hate mail” for not featuring cosplays from Western comics despite claiming that I feature cosplays from all over the world.

You know, if you wanted me to cosplay someone from a particular series, all you had to do was ask. :) I mean, I did feature something from Aladdin and The Emperor’s New Groove after all, so I wouldn’t say no to DC or Marvel.

So let me leave you with this photo of Supergirl by DC Comics as posted by Geeks are Sexy because they really are:

Hetalia Allied Forces America Alfred F. Jones Cosplay Costume

As one of the members of Allied Forces, the energetic man, Hetalia America Alfred F. Jones is fond of superheroes and hamburgers. In a word, he is common people but is also a charming guy to us.

This is the typical cosplay costume for Hetalia America cosplay, composed of brown artificial wool collar jacket, top, shirt, trousers and tie. It has a special meaning to the fans of America for it belongs to him. And we could feel the same as him as long as we put on this outfit.

K-On!: Hirasawa Yui 07

k-on! cosplay - hirasawa yui 7 by misaki

Although she didn't have any musical experience at the beginning of the series, Hirasawa Yui has absolute pitch, the ability to identify or re-create a given musical note without an external reference. She can tune her guitar perfectly without a tuner, which impressed Azusa as she has been playing the guitar much longer than Yui has. She has a younger sister named Ui, who actually acts as Yui’s older sister, taking care of her and keeping her in line.

Cute cosplay by Misaki! It makes me wonder if she can also play that guitar like the character she’s cosplaying as. Thanks again to Millia for sending this and to MPzero for the awesome photography!
