kaichou wa maid-sama! cosplay - ayuzawa misaki and usui takumiDuring his second year at Seika High, Usui Takumi became interested in the first female student council president, Ayuzawa Misaki. He learned her secret of working part-time at a maid cafe, and Misaki became suspiciou that his interest in her is mainly due to his intents on blackmailing her. As a result, despite telling her many times that he loves her, Misaki refuses to accept his feelings, dismissing his behavior as a joke or a form of sexual harassment.

One Piece: Perona

one piece cosplay - peronaConfident and strong-willed, Perona is the former “Wild Zombies” and “Surprise Zombies Commander” of Thriller Bark before the collapse of Gekko Moriah’s zombie army. Despite her cute looks, she normally speaks using a very masculine language. Nevertheless, she adores cute things, and will only allow someone to work for her if they are cute.

This feature is so pink that my eyes are hurting. But now I know who this character is! I’ve been seeing her around conventions lately, so I’ll be sure to snap a few photos when I can! Thanks again to Mila for sending this in!

Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi: Kisa Shota and Yukina Kou 02

sekai-ichi hatsukoi cosplay - kisa shota and yukina kou 2

Although he is already 30-years-old, Kisa Shota claims he has never actually fallen in love with anyone before. He knows that he has a tendency of falling for someone just for their good looks, and thus immediately develops a crush on Yukina Kou when he saw him in Marimo Books. After Kisa was introduced to Yukina by Yokozawa Takafumi from the sales department, Yukina becomes very interested in Kisa as he is the editor of the shoujo manga books that he likes the most.

To those who’ve seen the series, you probably know where this scene in from, but who’s to say what’s really happening behind that sketchbook, right? Thanks to again to Toki for sharing this!

Uta no Prince-sama: Hijirikawa Masato 03

uta no prince-sama cosplay - hijirikawa masato 3Serious and old-fashioned, Hijirikawa Masato is the eldest son and heir to the Hijirikawa Group. Being raised in a strict environment, he is unable to show his true self because of his upbringing. It was later revealed that he, Ranmaru, and Ren, were childhood friends as they are all “heirs to rich corporations”.

That really looks Masato! Serious, yet a little emotional. I really love how this cosplayer portrayed that adorable, piano boy! I wonder who s/he is? Thanks again to Mila for sending this in!

EDIT: Thanks to Moe for commenting that this is Brazillian cosplayer Yuu and to Renan Brum for the awesome photography!

Kuroshitsuji: Undertaker 02

kuroshitsuji / black butler cosplay - undertakerWARNING: This article may contain spoilers from the latest manga chapters of Kuroshitsuji. Please read at your own risk!

A former Grim Reaper and funeral director in London, Undertaker acted as an informant to the Phantomhive family for many years before his true identity came to light. He is eccentric, as well as manipulative and ruthless, but appears to care deeply for Ciel Phantomhive for reasons still unknown. Like Sebastian, he is very interested in humans and the fundamentals of life.

That just looks amazing! The scar on his face and those beautiful, yellow green eyes – definitely one of the best Undertakers I have yet seen! Thanks to Mila for sending this in!

Nevertheless, he took an interest in her and helped her out by kissing her to make her stalker go away. Yamato may not look like it, but he is actually very kind and protective, putting others’ interests before himself.

That hair and that smile! It really does look like Yamato! It’s too bad the photo is a little grainy. Thanks to Fina for sending this in!

雪の星座が囁く 答えはいつも そこに そこに
Winter constellations whisper; answers are always there
二人は闇を泳いだ 凍てつく風の さかな さかな
The two swim in darkness like fish of freezing wind

二人は指をからめた 凍える夜の ねずみ ねずみ
The two entwine their fingers like rats of a freezing night
二人は闇を泳いだ 凍てつく風の さかな さかな

二人は光もとめた 羽ばたくだけの ことり ことり
The two seek the light like little birds that can only flap their wings
二人は体かさねた 眠れぬ旅の ひつじ ひつじ
The two sleep together like sheep on a sleepless trip

Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi: Onodera Ritsu and Saga Masamune

sekaiichi hatsukoi cosplay - onodera ritsu and saga masamune

When they were still in high school, Onodera Ritsu had a crush on his sempai, Saga Masamune. He never spoke to him in person, but adored him from afar. Seeing as how much Masamune loved to read, Onodera decided that he would everything Masamune did in their school library. They eventually got together and Masamune even ended up tutoring Onodera after school.

This looks like a scene from a live action movie! I love the look on Masamune’s face! He looks bored but he stay with the sleeping Onodera anyway! Thanks to Toki for sharing this!

Hunter x Hunter: Kurapika 02

hunter x hunter cosplay - kurapika 2

Calm, level-headed, and intelligent, Kurapika is not one to easily open up to people in order to keep himself focused on his goal. Although described to be moralistic, he can be very judgmental, and would not hesitate to compromise his personal morality to achieve his revenge. His fury comes from the grief of losing everyone he loved at the young age of twelve.

I can actually feel all that hate in this cosplayer’s eyes. I hope one day, Kurapika will be able to find peace. Maybe the new series will give him that closure? Thanks to Jennifer for sending this in!

Tsukimiya Ringo is the adviser and teacher of Saotome Academy Class A. He is actually an infamous male idol who cross-dresses as a female. At first, it was speculated that he liked cross-dressing, but it was later revealed in the game that, while working as an idol, his agency told him that he looked so cute and forced him to cross-dress in order to get any work!

Another amazing cosplay by Nazs from Thailand! You might remember her since I just featured her as Ikki from Amnesia, and I think she makes a fabulous Ringo as well! Thanks to Rei for sending this in!

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de - Hachiyou Shou: Akuram

harukanaru toki no naka de - hachiyou shou cosplay - akuram

Akuram is the leader of the Oni Clan and the one who summoned Motomiya Akane to Kyo. He wanted to utilize her power to gain full domination over the capital. It is said that Akuram is the most powerful leader of the Oni Clan, so much so that even his close associates are unsure of how to deal with it.

Yoshino Shiyui (吉野珠衣) makes a very beautiful Akuram. It’s how I imagined him to be in real life – a beautiful, androgynous being. Please visit her profile for more of her photos!

Angel Beats!: Yui 04

angel beats! cosplay - yui by aze顔を合わしたら喧嘩してばかり
If we see each other’s faces, we always fight.
That’s a good memory too.

きみが教えてくれたんだ もう恐くない
You taught me that; I’m not afraid anymore.
どんな不自由でも幸せは掴める だから
No matter what kind of impairment I may have, I can grasp happiness. That’s why…

ひとりでもゆくよ 例え辛くても
Even if I’m alone, I’ll go, even if it’s difficult.
きみと見た夢は 必ず持ってくよ
I’ll definitely bring the dream I had with you.
きみとがよかった ほかの誰でもない
I’m glad it was with you, and nobody else.
でも目覚めた朝 きみは居ないんだね
But when I woke up in the morning, you weren’t there.

Sword Art Online: Asuna 06

She takes the game very seriously and is focused on clearing it as soon as possible. She is described to be somewhat prideful, and is unafraid of dueling with anyone who challenges her authority.

This cosplayer is really beautiful. The lighting was a good choice for this shot too, and that sword looks very nice as well! Thanks to Gina for sending this in!

Another: Misaki Mei

another live action - misaki mei by hashimoto ai

When Sakakibara Koichi was sent to the hospital due to his heart condition, he claimed to have strange dreams about a mysterious girl with a doll’s eye.

A few days later, he meets the same girl from his dream in the hospital. He gingerly approached her, asking what she was looking for in the basement. However, she doesn’t answer him and continued to walk with a doll in her hand.

About a month later, Koichi entered Yomiyama North High and meets the girl with a doll’s eye once again. This time, she was in his classroom, sitting at the back of the class. However, when he asked his classmates about her, they all claimed that the desk was empty.

I’ve just seen this movie, and it really creeped me out. Of course, I guess it doesn’t help that my brother was watching with me and he was doing his very best to scare me even more! But I have to admit, Hashimoto Ai makes a very good (and cute) Misaki Mei!

Have you guys seen this movie yet?

Surrendered herself to the contract of evil
In the past they even loved each other

Wandered in a town at dusk
夕暮れの街 彷徨い
And came across a girl
With beautiful eyes

Uta no Prince-sama: Ichinose Tokiya and Ittoki Otoya

uta no prince-sama cosplay - ichinose tokiya and ittoki otoyaIchinose Tokiya and Itoki Otoya have been roommates since they joined Saotome Academy. Tokiya started out as a Class S student because of his superior skill in rhythm and pitch, but was later placed in Class A because his singing lacked “heart”. It’s speculated that Tokiya was jealous of Otoya since, despite being an amateur, Otoya’s songs had something that Tokiya’s lacked.

Just look at how happy Otoya is! This cosplay is so in character that I just had to feature it! Please visit their profiles, Mitsuki(美月) as Tokiya and Kagami(鏡) as Otoya!

Although her motives behind the killings are currently unknown, she is said to be only human, yet possessed by demonic spirits. This may be the reason behind her abilities and homicidal tendencies.

HetemSenar makes such a perfect Blackbird, that I just had to feature her! It’s been almost a year since I asked for Shilin’s permission, but I hope this brings them both more fans anyway!
