Kamigami no Asobi: Loki Laevatein

kamigami no asobi cosplay - loki laevatein by nia mello

The Norse God of Fire, Loki Laevatein is a mischievous god who loves playing tricks on everyone. Because of this, most people avoided him when he was young, save for Balder who still befriended Loki despite his troublesome personality. Loki is said to be quite a lazy god, but would go all out on something that interests him.

Chinese cosplayer, Nia Mello, looks wonderful as Loki! I actually thought this was Otoya at first, but it’s a good thing I found her World Cosplay account! Thanks to Mika for sending this in!

Ao Haru Ride: Mabuchi Kou and Yoshioka Futaba

ao haru ride cosplay - mabuchi kou and yoshioka futabaIn junior high, Yoshioka Futaba was ostracized by the other girls because too many boys liked her. She only liked one boy, however, and that was Tanaka Kou, who moved away before she could even tell him how she felt.

Now in high school, Futaba is determined to be as unladylike as possible so that her new friends would not become jealous of her. Coincidentally, she meets Kou again, now using the name “Mabuchi Kou”, who tells her that he too, liked her in junior high, but feels differently now.

“Feels differently”, and yet this photo says otherwise! They look like they’re having fun together, isn’t that adorable? It makes you wonder what they saw up there. Thanks to Jenny for sending this in!

Meitantei Conan: Kudo Shinichi and Mori Ran

meitantei conan (detective conan) cosplay - kudo shinichi (jimmy kudo) and mori ran (rachele moore) by kumaqi and mayoii

Kudo Shinichi is a 17-year-old high school student who is a brilliant detective known to have closed cases that professionals could not. After going to a theme park with his childhood friend, Mori Ran, Shinichi followed two suspicious characters, Gin and Vodka, suspecting that they were criminals. Gin then attacked Shinichi and forced him to drink an experimental poison, APTX 4869 and left him for dead. Fortunately, a rare side effect of the drug caused Shinichi’s age to regress, shrinking him to the form of a child.

Chinese cosplayers KumaQi熊祁 and 真宵Mayoiii certainly look the part of Shinichi and Ran, and they managed to get those impossible hairstyles right too! I wonder how they look in another angle? Thanks to Mai for sharing this!

Shingeki no Kyojin: Eren Jeager 03

shingeki no kyojin cosplay - eren jeager by miura harumaEren has been overprotective of his friends and family ever since he was a child. Armin was his only friend and Eren never hesitated taking on the bullies who would make fun of him. He even brutally slaughtered the human traffickers who captured Mikasa in order to rescue her, even though they had never met before. After losing his mother to a titan, and losing contact with his father, his overprotectiveness intensified and he vowed to kill all the Titans with the Survey Corps.

You’ve probably seen this already, but I have to say, these character posters for the live action Shingeki no Kyojin movie look amazing! I’m a little worried about how the effects will be 3D Maneuver Gear, but I still can’t wait to see this!

What do you think of Miura Haruma playing the role of Eren Jeager? Remember, he’s the same guy who played Kazehaya from the live action Kimi ni Todoke movie. Quite a different role for him, wouldn’t you agree? Thanks to Karen for sending this in!

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!

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”

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?
