I know it has been so long now since this genre of AV(adult video) came up, but comparing to the old days, I feel the connotation of cosplay AV has been gradually changing for some reason…Basically in cosplay AV, pornstars do their job in a special outfit such as a maid, a flight attendant, a nurse, a schoolgirl, a swimming suit, so whatever they get dress could count a cosplay AV. However, lately we can see another genre of cosplay AV where real cosplayers get taken a sneak video inside the changing room at the real event for cosplayers. Though they don’t do “it,” it counts a cosplay AV. Having said that, know some cosplayers even do “it” though I am not sure they are real cosplayers or actually pornstars. But a few cosplayers might make their own video and sell at the expensinve price on the net. Naturally cosplay is just for fun for their own, however, as the population of cosplayers increase, those of people who love to collect cosplayers’ photos or video increase as well (i.e. カメラ小僧[camera kozou]). So I guess that’s why there is a connection between cosplayers and the porn video industry. Of course I know this really makes sheer female cosplayers angry. But I daresay most general people don’t seem to be interested in this that much. At best they would regard such video as a joke or merely a funny stuff.
Also, this must be something that could turn akibakeis on; cosplay AV has evolved out of what it used to be. I mean, cosplay AV portrays the original work of it at last. I don’t know whether they obtain a copyright or not, but it is kind of impressive in a way. See above image, you know what it is? Yes, this is a totally parody of the Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi. Except for her first name Hahiru, everything else completely follows the first novel. W-Well, as an otaku, as a man, I-I-I have watched this DVD, you know.(((;゜д゜)))ｱﾜﾜﾜﾜ I was so surprised to see how well they copied the original. Even though their acting is not so satisfying(of course, they are pornstars!), I can’t help but feel this could be a live-action drama version. Their acting looks like those young amateur actors in 中学生日記[chuugakusei nikki], but the funny thing is that I could feel this is not bad for a porn video. If this were on the air at the midnight, nobody would tell this is a porn video unless you see the sex scenes, I suppose so.
The story goes with Kyon’s narrative monologue(not bad) as the original, and to my surprise, it copies the battle between Nagato and Asakura.
Personally, I like this Asakura because she could quite portray her yandere side…
This porn video company, TMA keeps making this kind of thing. There’s some other series such as マリア様がみている[maria sama ga miteiru] or Faith/Stay night. Does the original author know about this? Anyway, as for this Hahiru series, there’s already the second volume, the Disappearance of Suzumiya Hahiru[涼宮ハヒルの消失]. So it means this series has got a lot of fans, doesn’t it? No matter what, the cosplay AV industry has played a big role in the otaku circle in many ways.
