I am pretty sure you guys would doubt how old I am because I sometimes cosplay a character from such an old series. Speaking of a soccer anime, what would you think of? Even if you are very young, I guess the anwer is, yes, Captain Tsubasa[キャプテン翼]! If a baseball anime, you might think of Touch[タッチ]…oops, there’s Major[メジャー] or Ookiku furikabutte[おおきく振りかぶって]. If a basketball anime, it is definitely Slam Dunk. Like this, there are very few famous series when it comes to the sport anime. Especially soccer anime. In case you don’t know this anime, I shall upload the quick movie here. Please put aside the fact that this anime started the fire for fujoshis who really love shotakon.
Anyway, why do I cosplay such a sport guy? In real life, I am not really good at sport. I cosplayed a basketball boy like Rukawa Kaede, and this time I decided to cosplay him.
He is Karl Heinz Schneider[カール・ハインツ・シュナイダー]. Yes, as you can tell from his name, he is a German soccer player, and people call him a young emperor in Germany(西ドイツの若き皇帝). Nah if now, it must be ××王子[prince], but at that time a word 王子 wasn’t in the trend. Well, I used to play the Captain Tsubasa game a lot when I was a kid, and I really liked Schneider. He is really cool and passionate, but not childish like Hyuga Kojiro. He just keeps going to win, and somtimes he even becomes very cold to anybody else.
In fact, his father used to be the director in the team but for some reason he stepped down. And he got a divorce so Schneider lives with his mother and younger sister. Schneider sometimes asks his father to start with his mother again, but he always turns down…So Schneider is doing his best to win so that his father could come back to the field, and his family can reunite again.
Oh no, this is something I love! I always fall for such a melodramatic plot, why? At any rate, a friend of mine told me when he saw my cosplays. Why have I cosplayed a lot of student characters? He assumpted that I am wanting to be a student again, moreover my real school days was sucks so that is why I want to have a better school days in 2D[2次元]. Yeah he has a point! My school days in 3D[3次元] was not good at all, so I want to enjoy my school days in 2D…Oh no, that is why I cosplay such a young character! Even I didn’t know that. げー、俺って本当に2次元コンプレックスだったんだ！ええ、私の生きる世界は2.5次元ですが、何か？＾＾
The hardest thing in this cosplay was to make his hairstyle. This is really difficult to copy! Like Dragon Ball! Well I did my best…I really did.
Ich werde dich auf jeden Fall wiedersehen, Tsubasa…
Mein Ziel ist es die Nummer eins in der Welt zu sein!
Vater, warum fängst du nicht mit Mutter neu an?
Vater, Mutter, Marie…Es ist geschafft…
