Kuroshitsuji: Sebastian Michaelis and Ciel Phantomhive 04

kuroshitsuji / black butler cosplay - sebastian michaelis and ciel phantomhive 4

溶けたのやっかいな 氷みたいな私を
I’m troublesome after I melted like ice
優しくすくって 上唇で遊ぶ
You tenderly scoop me up and and toy around with me with your lips

それでもひとつの愛の形を探す
Nevertheless, I search for a single form of love
遠くよりも今を結んだ 枯れた瞳は
My dried eyes tied it to the present rather than a time far beyond
できればこのまま 包まれて終わりたい
If I can, I want to end while shrouded this like
二人で秘めた 淡い肌 月も隠れてる
Together, we concealed our pale selves; the moon is hiding, too

“Monochrome Kiss”
Lyrics and Translation by Words of Songs

I don’t know about this cosplay… it makes me nervous posting it here in blogspot, but oh well! If Google tells me to, then I’ll just take it down! Anyway, I thought the opening theme of the first season was appropriate to go with the photo! Thanks to Clara for sending this in!

Kamigami no Asobi: Anubis Ma’at

kamigami no asobi cosplay - anubis ma'at by shion

The Egyptian God of the Dead, Anubis is a shy deity who rarely appears in public. He does, however, have a curious side to him, and thus hides in the shadows most of the time. He prefers the company of animals because he feels closer to them and they have no sin. Anubis also tends to speak unique words that only Thoth can understand.

I haven’t seen Kamigami no Asobi yet, but I think Shion did a great job on Anubis! And I really think this cosplay could use a lot more views and faves, so please do visit Shion’s World Cosplay Account and give her your support!

Fushigi Yuugi: Tamahome

fushigi yuugi cosplay - tamahome by kyan yutakaA second stage play adaptation of Watase Yuu’s popular manga series, Fushigi Yuugi is set to perform at the Shinagawa Prince Hotel Club ex from March 19 to 29 this year according to Crunchyroll.

Only two of the actors have been revealed so far: 29-year-old Kyan Yutaka from the visual kei “air” rock band, Golden Bomber as Tamahome, and 18-year-old gravure idol/actress, Ito Risaka as Yuuki Miaka. The play is produced by Nelke Planning and directed by Okumura Naoyoshi.

Advance tickets will be on sale on Valentine’s Day, February 14.

Since the story will be told from Tamahome’s point of view, I’m sure it will be something that many fans will look forward to. I actually prefer Hotohori than Tamahome, so I really hope the actor they’ll choose will fit the character. Thanks to Aril for sharing this!

Sword Art Online: Gun Gale Online: Kirito

sword art online - gun gale online cosplay - kirito

At the request of Kikuoka Seijirou, who is the head of the net crimes division, Kazuto agreed to convert his account in order to enter and investigate the Death Gun incidents in Gun Gale Online. Upon his first Full Dive in, he was stunned to see that his avatar was extremely feminine. At one point, a player even offered to buy his account as this kind of default avatar was quite rare. Kirito managed to befriend Sinon as she initially thought Kirito was a female player like herself.

Oh wow, this cosplayer looks amazing! Definitely going to be one of cosplay goals in the far, far future! How far, probably to infinity! Thanks to Taylor for sending this in!

Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club: Tachibana Makoto and Nanase Haruka 02

free! - iwatobu swim club cosplay - tachibana makoto and nanase haruka by itsukimu and kery

探してた未来へ羽撃いてく
I’m trying to soar to the future I was looking for,
鳥を追いかけ
Chasing after the birds
伸ばした僕の手は見た事無い
The arm that I extended connected
景色へ繋がった
To a scene that I’d never seen

尋常じゃない渦中
An extraordinary vortex,
劣等に苛まれた
Tortured by inferiority,

The way you want this
Anxious eyes chose down the blur point
On bended your knees

憧れの季節嘆く
Lamenting over the season of aspiration

Without even saying goodbye
And bring me down

“Rage On” by Anime Lyrics
with transliteration by Chokoreeto
and translation by bambooXZX

Another amazing cosplay by ItsukiMU and Kery! You know, the background reminds me of my old high school, although I doubt it’s the same one since these cosplayers are from China. Thanks again to Meirin for sending this in!

Vocaloid: Kaito 13

vocaloid cosplay - kaito 13Ash returning to ash.
dust returning to dust.

荒涼たる 鋼の森
When inside the bleakest metal forest
喝采(かっさい)に似た 鳴動に
Any rumbling is like someone clapping,
黄銅羊(おうどうひつじ)の夢を見る
within my dreams every sheep is made of brass
玲瓏(れいろう)たる 音の響き
One note ringing endlessly in my head
海を渡れ 高らかに
Make a journey over the ocean proudly,
三千世界を踏みしめて
standing on soil that is over three thousand years old

“Ashes to Ashes”
Lyrics by Vocalochu
Translation by Infiny

Kaito is one of my favorite Vocaloids, and I’m really glad that he’s getting a lot of cosplays too! I think I’m liking this dark blue hair color. Thanks to Kaori for sending this in!

Love Live!: Minami Kotori

love live! cosplay - minami kotori

Minami Kotori is the group’s designer along with Yazawa Nico. She is known to have good fashion sense and is quite good at drawing as well. Kotori is kind and empathetic towards her friends, but she does have a hard time expressing her feelings because she always takes other people’s feelings into consideration.

This cosplayer was spotted at the 13th Jiongjiongyoushen ComicCom in Beijing, China! If anyone happens to know who the cosplayer is, please do let us know! Thanks to Calvin for suggesting this!

Aldnoah.Zero: Slaine Troyard, Asseylum Vers Allusia, and Count Cruhteo

aldnoah.zero cosplay - slaine troyard, asseylum vers allusia, and count cruhteo by tiramishi, aze, and sei v

Slaine Troyard is an earth-born human who is a subservient to the Versian, Count Cruhteo. Count Cruhteo appears to have a great amount of dislike for Slaine, as he beats Slaine for any slight, no matter how small. He is a close friend of Princess Asseylum of the Vers Empire and is hinted to have feelings for her.

Doesn’t this look like a scene from the anime? Amazing cosplay by Tiramishi as Slaine, Aze as Princess Asseylum, and Sei V as Count Cruhteo with photography by William Tjhin! The details on Aze’s dress is absolutely fantastic! Please visit their Facebook accounts for more of their cosplays!

Noblesse: M-21

noblesse cosplay - m-21 by silrest

A modified human, M-21 was an unwilling experimental subject by Dr. Crombel and the Union. He is one of the few surviving members of the M-series, and the vast amount of experimentation left the subjects with no memories of their past. All of the M-series were deemed failures until M-21 somehow began developing powers of minor transformation, and his latent powers were later awakened by Cadis Etrama di Raizel.

Korean cosplayer Silrest makes a very convincing M-21! I mean, just look at that piercing glare of hers! Please show her your support by visiting her World Cosplay account and Facebook Page!

Hunter x Hunter: Chrollo Lucifer 04

hunter x hunter cosplay - chrollo lucifer

Although Chrollo is cold to outsiders, he does care very much for his Phantom Troupe. When Chrollo read Neon’s prophecy about Uvogin’s death, he cried for him, and later orchestrated a massacre of Mafia members as a requiem for his fallen comrade. He does not fear his own death, however, as Melody once pointed out that his heartbeat sounded as if he was happy living alongside death.

I love how this photo was edited! It looks like a painting! What a clever way of adding anime art to cosplay! Thanks to Kris for sending this in!

Tekken: Nina Williams

Born and raised in Ireland, Nina Williams trained in aikido and koppojutsu even as a young girl. She and her sister, Anna, admired her father, former assassin Richard WIlliams, and competed for his attention and approval. Both sisters blamed each other for the death of their father, and despite trying to work things out, they ended up forming an extreme sense of sibling rivalry.

Nina is my favorite character in Tekken, and this cosplayer really did an amazing job cosplaying her! It looks like she used her real hair too! Thanks again to Diogo for sending this in!
