Air Gear: Wanijima Kaito

air gear cosplay - wanijima kaito

The older brother of Akito/Agito Wanijima, Kaito is the leader of the special SWAT team “Windstorm G-Men” that was created to hunt down Storm Rider teams. The Shinjuku Crocodile views his brother to be nothing more than a tool. It is speculated, however, that Lind, the “original” personality of Akito/Agito, is very similar to Kaito.

Beautiful cosplay! I still need to find the time to watch this series… I heard it’s pretty good, with a lot of action in it. Anyway, thanks for sharing this and great work!

Air Gear: Wanijima Akito/Agito 02

air gear cosplay - wanijima akito/ agito The Fang King who was originally amongst the Wind SWAT team, Wanijima Akito was saved from his fate by Kogarasumaru’s Leader, Minami “Ikki” Itsuki.

Even though Akito stated that he was the original Fang King; another personality, Wanijima Lind emerges from the battle against Orca. Lind is stronger than the two and does not care for anyone… not even for Akito and Agito.

I didn’t know there was a blue version of his costume. The original design was color orange, if I’m not mistaken. Thanks to Exhibition MindBlue for sharing the photo!

Air Gear: Noyamano Ringo and Simca

air gear cosplay - noyama ringo and simcaShe may look like a simple junior high school girl, but the King Class AT user, Noyamano Ringo, is the current Thorn King (or rather “Queen”) of the Eight Kings in the AT World. She is the successor of the legendary Storm Riders Team Sleeping Forest and Simca’s rival to Minami Itsuki aka “Ikki”.

And of course, I’ve already rambled about Simca here. No need for a repeat, am I right? :D

I do think I like this Simca cosplayer better than the first one though. Then again, maybe that’s just because of the costume?

I first found this on That Girls Site. Thanks for sharing the photo!

Air Gear: Simca

air gear cosplay - simcaSimca is the leader of the Genesis group from Air Gear. She wants to gather all the Kings and their Regalia in order to conquer the Trophaeum Tower and acquire the Sky Regalia. It is also perhaps because of this that she has taken a great (somewhat romantic) interest in Minami “Ikki” Itsuki because she believes he is destined to become the legendary Sky King. She was able to convince him to take the lead on Genesis after Kogarasumaru’s triumph over Behemoth.

This is a very convincing cosplay of Simca the Swallow. Love the costume and the attitude. Great cosplay!

Air Gear: Wanijima Akito a.k.a. Agito

air gear cosplay - wanijima akito agitoI got to watch a few episodes of Air Gear last weekend, and I really loved it. It’s amazing what they can do on those skates (air trecks)..!

But the character Wanijima Akito / Agito amused me the most.

He is an ordinary boy who was forced by his older brother, Kaito, to violence for the benefit of his Wind SWAT Team. Not wanting to be a part of it anymore, he created his violent alter ego called Agito.

Agito took over the title as “Fang King” and Akito became a mediocre rider of ATs. After being rescued by Minami Itsuki, aka “Ikki”, he became one of the founding members of Kogarasumaru. Akito becomes Agito when his eye patch is covering his left eye.

Here’s an interesting trivia… I found this picture from Deviant Art, and the photographer’s account name is Shiroin. I found out that he is also the photographer behind the Card Captor Sakura picture I posted back in July. Make sure you go check out Shiroin’s Gallery for more great cosplay pictures!
