Rurouni Kenshin: Shishio Makoto

rurouni kenshin movie (cosplay) - shishio makotoCan we all just please take a moment to appreciate Shishio’s reaction in this picture? Yes?

Alright, from what I understand in the description, this is not Fujiwara Tatsuya, who plays the role of Shishio in the film, but Takito Kenichi? I did find his profile in (Japanese) wiki, and he does play a role in Rurouni Kenshin, but I’m not exactly sure since my Japanese is not very good. And what’s with the photo in his kimono?

Anyhow, if anyone can clarify, that would be great! Thanks to Rae for sending this in!

xxxHolic: Ichihara Yuuko 05

xxxholic cosplay - ichihara yuuko by izumi 和泉

Although Yuuko has the ability to predict the future, she often visits a fortuneteller whom she lovingly refers to as “Oba-chan”. Once, when Watanuki accompanied her, Yuuko explained that one cannot predict their own future of else there will be chaos. Nevertheless, Oba-chan is one of Yuuko’s oldest friends and is the only one in the entire series to call Yuuko “Yuuko-chan”.

Isn’t IZUMI (和泉) absolutely gorgeous? I know I’m now a huge fan of hers since she cosplayed one of my favorite characters so perfectly! If you’d like to see more of her work, please support her though Archive, Cloud, Cure, and World Cosplay! Thanks to Jai for sending this in!

Inuyasha: Rin and Sesshoumaru 03

inuyasha cosplay - rin by chara and sesshoumaru by momoren“Diamond!”

Across the endless sky the clouds float playfully
Wandering eternally to get rid of a recurring dream

Until the moment the rain ends
I can sleep peacefully

So many times, yes, no matter how often

Lyrics and Translation by
Inuyasha Wiki

Aren’t they cute? I really love Momoren’s cosplay of Sesshoumaru, and Chara looks really cute as Rin too! Don’t you just love how they posed for this photo?

You can view the entire album on Momoren’s Facebook Page, so please support her! Thanks to Aly for sharing this!

Kin’iro no Corda II: Yunoki Azuma

kin'iro no corda / la corda d'oro cosplay - yunoki azuma by ayatouch

君が知りたいと願うなら 薔薇の下においで
If you wish to know, come under the roses
金の調べたどり行けたなら 迷わずに僕に逢えるから
If you can finally reach the golden melody you sought without losing your way,
you can meet me

Fake 長い回廊に Face 愁い囚われて
Fake… Within the long corridor… Face… Trapped within the gloom…
焦がれてた自由な日々 あきらめていた希望
I had given up hope on the days of freedom I’d longed for

叶えたい夢を見つけたら パンドラの箱を開こう
If I find a dream I want to come true, I’ll open Pandora’s box
何が遭っても どんな未来でも
No matter what happens, whatever the future holds,
そうさきっとそこに 君はいる
That’s right, surely you’ll be there

“Sweet Secret”
Lyrics by CRESCENDO fansite
