Loveless: Agatsuma Soubi 02

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

loveless cosplay - agatsuma soubiBeloved’s Fighter, Agatsuma Soubi, is a 20 year old art student who used to attend Shichisei Gakuen, a school for fighters. Ritsuka’s brother, Seimei’s true name is Beloved, as Ritsuka’s is Loveless. Under Seimei’s orders, Soubi became Ritsuka’s fighter, despite it being considered taboo. Eventually, Soubi abandoned the name altogether and operated under the name Loveless.

Wow… this cosplayer looks like he/she jumped out of the Loveless anime or manga. Really love the hair and how it was styled. I think this cosplayer is a girl though, but that doesn’t matter much since Soubi looks like a girl..?

Gyakuten Saiban 4: Lamiroir

gyakuten saiban 4 / ace attorney apollo justice - lamiroir / thalassa gramarye / arumajiki yumiWarning: This review has a lot of spoilers for Gyakuten Saiban 4 (Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney). You have been warned!

A famous singer from Borginia, Lamiroir has a little secret. She has no idea who she really is, and she’s pretending to be “normal” when she’s really… blind. Her assistant and pianist, Machi Tobaye stays close to her and pretends to be the one who is blind in order to avert suspicions from himself. It is later reveled in the series that Lamiroir is actually Arumajiki Yumi (Thalassa Gramarye in the English version), the only daughter of Arumajiki Tensai (Magnifi Gramarye) and the mother of Odoroki Housuke (Apollo Justice) and Naruhodo Minuki (Trucy Wright).

Beautiful eyes… I wonder what she looks like without the mask?

Ouran high School Host Club: Otori Kyouya and Suo Tamaki

Monday, June 23rd, 2008


The Vice President and the President of the Host Club, before the host club ever came to be. This was way back when Tamaki was asking Kyouya about the sights in Japan, since it was Tamaki’s first time to Japan at the time. He lived in France all of his life. And Kyouya, being asked by his father to be friendly towards Tamaki, toured Tamaki around Japan, putting up with his selfish ways.

I very casual cosplay compared to the first one. It’s nice to see Kyouya so relaxed. He’s always so tense in the anime. Nice shot too! Good choice of location and time of day.

Card Captor Sakura: Yue

Friday, June 20th, 2008

card captor sakura cosplay - yue

The second guardian of the Clow Cards, Yue is the judge who determines whether or not the new master Cerberus chooses is worthy to be his master. Just as Cerberus is the Guardian of the Sun, Yue is known as the Guardian of the Moon, and controls the wind and water. He exists as a human in the form of Tsukishiro Yukito, a close friend of Kinomoto Sakura’s brother Touya.

Alright, alright, obviously he’s missing his wings, but I still find this cosplay to be very impressive. A nice touch with the Clow Cards, really.

The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi: Suzumiya Haruhi 02

the melancholy of suzumiya haruhi cosplay - suzumiya haruhi

Suzumiya Haruhi in her cheerleading outfit. I think I like this better than the first one. I can’t remember if she did have a cheerleading episode anymore… It’s been a while since I saw this series.

I’ve heard there a second season of The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi. I wonder if they’re going to juggle the episodes again like they did the first season? I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

spirited away cosplay - ogino chihiro aka sen and nigihayama kohaku nushi aka haku

A young girl is taken away from the real world and finds herself in the entrance of the Spirit World. Chihiro must find a way out before she forgets who she is completely and becomes trapped in the Spirit World.

She meets a young boy named Haku who helps her and keeps her from loosing herself to the Spirit World. He is actually the Spirit of the river known as Kohaku, and Chiharu helped him remember his real name and past, freeing him from Yubaba’s curse.

Adorable isn’t it? Also, I would like to let everyone know that I have a 2nd blog on cosplay, that focuses of awesome cosplayers from the West. Just as an experiment. 8)
