Vampire Knight Musical Cast

vampire knight musical cast

Watsuki Yumi, better known as a member of Japanese female idol group “Nogizaka46” will be playing the lead role as Yuki Cross in the musical adaptation of Hino Matsuri’s Vampire Knight as reported by Crunchyroll. The musical is scheduled to perform at the Hakuhinkan Theater in Tokyo from January 21-25, 2015. Among those listed in the cast are:

I’d love to watch this myself, but I don’t live in Japan and I can’t understand Japanese! It would be nice if there were subtitles available in the live performance, much like Chinese musical I watched here in Manila. I wonder if Rima and Ruka will make an appearance here? Anyway, thanks to ちびめち for sharing this!

Vocaloid 2: Hatsune Miku 55

vocaloid 2 cosplay - hatsune miku senbonzakura by teru terumii

大胆不敵にハイカラ革命
After a bold and audacious Westernization revolution,
磊々落々(らいらいらくらく)反戦国家
this is now an open and upright anti-war nation.
日の丸印の二輪車転がし
As I pedal forward my bicycle marked with the Japanese flag,
悪霊退散 ICBM
evil spirits will disperse from my intercontinental ballistic missiles.

環状線を走り抜けて 東奔西走なんのその
Looping the belt line, I don't care if I'm constantly on the move.
少年少女戦国無双 浮世の随(まにま)に
Boys and girls must be unrivaled during the warring era, in the floating world.

“Senbonzakura” (Thousands of Cherry Trees)
Lyrics and Translation by Anime Lyrics

Remember Teru Terumii, the Indonesian cosplayer who played Alice from Pandora Hearts? I decided to give her blog a visit and was happy to see her version of Hatsune Miku’s Senbonzakura! I think this suits her quite well, wouldn’t you agree?

If you like her work, please support her through Facebook too! Thank you very much!

Kamigami no Asobi: Balder Hringhorni

kamigami no asobi: ludere deorum cosplay - balder hringhorniBalder Hringhorni is the Norse God of Light who is described to be a cheerful, yet somewhat clumsy god. He cannot be harmed as his mother Frigg made a pact with all objects on earth not to harm him, with the exception of mistletoes. He has been friends with Thor Megingjard and Loki Laevatein ever since they were children.

This looks amazing! The cosplayer looks absolutely beautiful! I wonder who she could be? Thanks to Marie for sharing this!

Sword Art Online: Asuna 07

sword art online cosplay - asuna 7夢で高く跳んだ躰は
Jumping high from my dreams
どんな不安纏っても振り払っていく
No matter what sort of anxiety clinging upon me, I’ll go ahead and shake it off
眠る小さな想い拡がり出して
Expand and bring out that sleeping, small little thought
気付く弱い私君がいれば
I realize that I'm weak and if you're here

暗い世界強くいれた
You give strength to the darkness of this world
長い夢見る心はそう永遠で
My heart seems to be looking at a long dream forever

“Crossing Field”
Lyrics and Translation by Anime Lyrics

Hello, everyone! My apologies for the sudden hiatus! Things have been crazy lately IRL so I didn’t have time to go online and update Cosplay Holic! I’m really sorry!

The good news is, my work as a mangaka has been picking up! I have several projects lined up, and I had just finished drawing another one shot manga! If you’d like, please do support me as well over at kurohiko.com and on Facebook!

Thank you so much for always visiting Cosplay Holic! I’ll do my best to keep posting more cosplays, even if I can only do so once in a while! And I hope you guys like the new layout too!

Fisheye Placebo: Frey

fisheye placebo cosplay - frey by ted bin

Frey is a hacker and a student at Stuxent University that works with Robin and has succeeded in hacking Solar Eye's database. It is implied that Frey isn't his real name.

He is first shown in the second comic of Fisheye Placebo. He was with Robin discussing about Vance Lee and planning to pretend to be Robin to figure out whether or not Vance was a spy. After an embarrassing personal messaging stint, he concludes Vance is only a minor setback.

You all probably know I have a weakness to violins, am I right? Well, I also have a weakness for the artist, Yuumei, so seeing this cosplay of one of her characters by Ted Bin gave me all the excited feels~!

Here’s the artwork paired with this cosplay. I hope there are fans of this series here too!

Loveless: Agatsuma Soubi 12

According to GoBoiano, Loveless manga is finally set to resume this fall!

loveless cosplay - agatsuma soubi by cookie

Not a lot of details have been given at this point, but Mangaka Kouga Yun has stated that she expects there will only be two or three volumes left to complete the series.

I bet the fans are going to be excited to read the final chapters! Loveless started way back in 2001, so it must be such a long wait to finally receive the ending. Thanks to Chet for writing about this, and to Mika for sending in Chinese cosplayer, Cookie’s cosplay of Agatsuma Soubi!

Shingeki no Kyojin: Levi Ackerman 07

shingeki no kyojin cosplay - levi ackerman by oh ye ya

Although Levi is known to be unapproachable and cold, he places great value on preserving human life. He once stated that he hates having unnecessary casualties and advised his subordinates to use their judgment properly to avoid any mistakes that may cost them their lives. When they later discovered that titans were once humans themselves, Levi appeared to be mortified by the news.

Another amazing cosplay by Taiwanese cosplayer, Oh Ye Ya (夜伢)! I really love all these different colors the fans have made for Shingeki no Kyojin. I think the black one may have been my favorite until now. Red looks surprisingly good on Levi! Thanks to Genevieve for sending this in!

Clash of Clans Live Action Trailer

My little nephew came to visit us from Canada, and he’s somehow convinced me to buy a new smart phone just so that I could play Clash of Clans with him.

I have to admit, the game can be addicting after a while, even though I feel bad for raiding other villages for their resources, and sending off my troops to be killed.

Needless to say, once they told me there was a live action trailer (possibly fan made?), I had to check it out myself.

I’m thoroughly impressed with this video, you have no idea! It got me laughing at my screen even with strangers giving me weird looks for it (It was a bad idea to watch it while commuting, I tell you).

Are any of you playing this game?

Sword Art Online: Alfheim Online: Asuna 03

As a regular player in Alfheim Online, Asuna retains her strong-willed yet kind personality as seen in Sword Art Online. However, she is no longer as proud as she was before. Asuna has several traits which are similar to Kirito’s, which is probably why they understand and love each other very much.

This cosplayer makes a very pretty Asuna! I like the addition of wings and effects in this photo. It’s as if she’s actually inside ALO! Thanks to Daniel for sending this in!

DRAMAtical Murder: Clear

dramatical murder cosplay - clearClear along with his brothers α and α2, were designed to sing “Dye Music”, a song that could brainwash people into submission, thus dyeing their brains. His real name was nothing more than a serial number, R-2E-054, and he originally served under Toue, his master. Unfortunately, he ended up being a defective unit, and was to be disposed off until the man in charge of disposal adopted Clear and treated him like his own son.

This cosplayer looks familiar somehow, but I’m not completely sure. Perhaps someone here will recognize him? Thanks to Steph for sending this in!

Uta no Prince-sama: Shinomiya Natsuki 03

uta no prince-sama cosplay - shinomiya natsuki by liuあなたのため僕は歌う…
I sing for you…

月が煌めく夜空は 胸がざわついて
Like the moon gleaming in the night sky, my beating chest
すっと手を伸ばせば 一つになれるような
If I could just reach out my hand, we’d become one

キラキラほら…光る未来見えますか?
See how it sparkles… Can you see our shining future?
一緒に歩みたい
I want to walk there together
だから守れるチカラを
So I’ll have the power to protect

“Oath to Sirius”
Lyrics by moon5200402
Translation by ☽ Moonlit Sanctuary ☾

I’m back guys! Sorry for the sudden hiatus! I’ve recently been hired by a local publishing company and we’re making a monthly anthology book, so I’m pretty much swamped! I never thought I could pull all nighters in my age, but hey, we crossed the first hurdle! Hopefully, this means that I’ve learned my lesson so that I can keep Cosplay Holic updated in the future, right? We’ll have to wait and see, but the next time Cosplay Holic suddenly lacks in updates, you’ll know why!

In any case, don’t you think Taiwanese cosplayer Liu makes an amazing Natsuki? For those who’ve seen the anime, you probably remember this scene, right? Thanks to Pandalicious for sending this in!

Kuroko no Basuke: The Generation of Miracles

kuroko no basuke cosplay - momoi satsuki, akashi seijuro, murasakibara atsushi, daiki aomine, ryota kise, and kuroko tetsuya

The all-star team of Teiko Junior High won the junior high Nationals for three consecutive years before graduating and entering different high schools. The five (arguably six) members all came to Teiko by coincidence, which included Akashi Seijuro, Murasakibara Atsushi, Daiki Aomine, Shintaro Midorima, Ryota Kise, and Kuroko Tetsuya. Momoi Satsuki, Aomine’s childhood friend, acted as their manager, and she is in love with Kuroko.

They look adorable, don’t they? We don’t get to see a lot of beautiful group cosplays like this, but I have say, all that food is making me hungry! Thanks to Clara for sending this in!
