In Japan, it’s becomig cooler. Autumn has come, and will be winter soon. Such a short term is ephemeral, but that should be beautiful. No wonder most foreign people like Japanese four seasons.
Anyway, such a nice season sure makes cosplayers cosplay. I already cosplayed twice this month, but did again…I know I am becoming insane more and more. This time, I chose the beautiful seashore, 九十九里浜[Kujyukurihama] in Chiba Pref. Even though it’s October, we found some surfers here and there. My sempai[先輩] wanted to try out his brand-new camera, so asked me to give an oppotunity to use it. I kindly asked him to take my cosplays, and we set out for the seashore.
I tried to cosplay as much as I could because I can’t go to such a faraway place so often. But this time, I decided to cosplay him.
He is Himuro Reiichi in Toki Meki Memorial -Girls’ Side-. I have never missed all of the Tokimemo series so far including this otome version. Anyway, he is a teacher[sensei] and is wearing glasses. See this image, you can see how cold he looks? Yes, he is…a 鬼畜眼鏡[kichiku megane]! To much worse, he is voiced by the famous kichiku seiyu, 子安武人[Takehito Koyasu].
Nah, actually he is not that kichiku though he is cold. Though I am pretty sure he IS kichiku in doujin comics. It is normal that at least one sensei has to be in this kind of game. And he/she is the most difficult to pursue, no?^^ You are just one of his/her students, so if you want to pursue him/her, you have to be special. In other words, you have to prove you are not like most students. So basically sensei always makes us do a lot of things. You have to improve yourself, I mean, study well, come to the top of the class, show how much you are good at sport, and try to close to sensei as much as you can. This is pretty hard! You can’t do these things at the same time, but you have to. Otherwise, you can’t get your sensei.
What am I talking about?^^ Being kichiku is more difficult than I thought. And it was so hard to copy his hairstyle. I had to comb the hair backwards so that my real hair could be seen. So I messed it up a couple of times, but anything else was simple.
Also, I cosplayed Nagisa Kaworu in Neon Genesis Evangelion and Hijikata Toshiro in Gintama after this. If you happen to have the Evangelion manga volume 9, please see the first two or three pages. You could see Kaworu’s regular clothes which never shows in the anime…I cosplayed that. But too bad it was kinda windy though it was sunny, so I didn’t make it better. But it’s okay, I really enjoyed because I had never had a photoshooting at such a beatiful place.
Sensei, watch out!!
I’ve been waiting, I’m waiting, I’ll be waiting…for you, Shinji-kun.
