Amnesia Cast: Toma, Shin, Ukyo, Ikki, and Kent

amnesia cosplay cast - toma, shin, kent, ukyo, ikki

One morning on the 1st of August, a girl wakes up and realizes she has lost all of her memories. A spirit named Orion appears before her and tells her that his spirit collided with hers and caused her amnesia. Orion then goes on to help her recollect her memories, guiding her along the way.

This is certainly a unique group shot! They kinda look like dolls in this set, wouldn’t you agree? Thanks to Lara for sending this in!

Amnesia: Shin 02

amnesia cosplay - shin by sachi

Although the Heroine doesn’t remember him, it appears that Shin has been her boyfriend for three months prior to her Amnesia. The Heroine stood by Shin’s side, even though he was ostracized by their other classmates. This was also probably the reason why he fell in love with her.

South Korean cosplayer Sachi looks amazing as Shin! I’m wondering if those shoes are the same ones in different colors, because wouldn’t that mean she bought two pairs just for this cosplay? Thanks to Janet for sending this in!

Sword Art Online: Kirito 08

sword art online cosplay - kirito 8

Even as I’ve acknowledged my cowardly past
I still act so scared like I don't understand a thing
Now, my past is being projected into the present

Countless skies I’ve painted
Surely here is where my fleeting heart gets unsettled

“Crossing Field”
Lyrics and Translation by Anime Lyrics

The effects on this photo make it look as if the cosplayer is actually in the virtual reality MMORPG, Sword Art Online! I’d love to try out photo manipulation like this for some of the cosplay photos I took from conventions. Maybe when I get a good action shot? Thanks again to Genie for sending this in!

uta no price-sama cosplay - ittoki otoya by yingtze

With just three synchronized short stories,
繋がり合う Song & Music, just now
They’ve merged together, song & music, just now
ギリギリShout loud ハモリ合う世界には
Shouting loud! In this world that barely harmonizes,
A dream is dancing!

Lyrics and Translation by Uta no Prince-sama Wiki

A super cute, debut version of Otoya by Yingtze! All those details in her cosplay are so mesmerizing and impressive! Now I feel like playing UtaPri Music again. Thanks to Carol for sending this in!

Amnesia: Toma

amnesia cosplay - toma by someiAlthough Toma is a very kind individual, he can be a little overprotective at times. He is willing to do anything to protect the Heroine, even putting sleeping drugs in her food as a way of trying to keep her in her room. He does this because he cares deeply about her, even though his methods may not be all too conventional.

I don’t think he and I would end up together if I were to play the otome game. I know his intentions are pure, but really? Anyway, thanks to Lucy for introducing me to Taiwanese cosplayer, Somei!

Kaichou wa Maid-sama!: Usui Takumi and Ayuzawa Misaki

kaichou wa maid-sama! cosplay - usui takumi and ayuzawa misaki by stay

The most popular boy at Seika High, Usui Takumi is extraordinarily talented in many fields, including cooking, playing the violin, chess, and even table etiquette. However, he doesn’t really show much interest in anything and prefers to stay in the background as an observer. Misaki often calls Usui a “perverted outer-space alien” because he somehow managed to survive jumping off their school roof and into the swimming pool… and he always tells her that he loves her.

As you guys may have already guessed, I was a little busy for the past couple of days, but now I will try to play catch up and make up for lost updates! Let’s see if I can manage somehow! In any case, doesn’t Stay look amazing as Usui?

Vocaloid 2: Hatsune Miku 51

vocaloid 2 cosplay - hatsune miku - love is war始めるのよ これは戦争
Let me begin a war, yes this is a war
I can’t stand you being delighted with someone else
切なる恋 それは罪
Obsessed by such an eager love is a sin
見せてあげる わたしの想いを
Let me show you how sinful my love is

“Love is War”
Lyrics and Translation by

That is one fantastic looking Miku! I’m wondering if that megaphone was painted manually? I mean, why is there a yellow part in the middle? Or maybe it’s because of the lighting? But it’s a nice effect, in my opinion! Thanks to Michael for sending this in!

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: Sonozaki Mion

higurashi no naku koro ni cosplay - sonozaki mionBeing the oldest in Maebara Keiichi’s class, Sonozaki Mion is the class president whom everyone looks up to as their leader. She highly respects Keiichi as her friend and rival, but it was revealed much later on that she actually has a crush on him. She acts like a tomboy and is often seen with a holstered airsoft gun, even though she is never seen using it.

I actually though she was Hatsune Miku at first, but it’s a good thing Ling emailed me the character information along with the photo! Could she be a cosplayer we know, I wonder?

This… sounds like a really strange series. But this cosplay looks stunning nonetheless, am I right? Thanks to Denise for sending this in!

Cat’s Trail Rewind: Airee Collette

Airee Collete is our main character. She is the hero/anti-hero of Cat’s Trail. Cursed with kleptomania, she can never resist the urge to steal somebody’s belongings or any other important artifact. She also likes adventure and has a carefree, devil-may-care attitude. She is also a wanted criminal in 2 continents: The southern continent “Tarsierian” and its western neighbor “Papiris”. Her arch-nemesis Sheriff Poppy will stop at nothing to bring her to justice. She first appeared in Issue no.1 of course! ^_^

Source: Rusty’s Cat’s Trail Site

The artist behind this series, Elmer Damaso, became an inspiration to most Filipino artists who once only dreamed of diving into the local manga industry here in the Philippines. Culture Crash, an anime/manga magazine, became one of the pioneers of Philippine Manga, and “Cat’s Trail” was one of its stories.

You have no idea how much I love this character. And Miss Lin Ling makes a perfect Airee in her returning debut series, Cat’s Trail Rewind. I really hope this independent creation continues! Thanks to Kit Perez for the awesome photography!
