オトメンがコスプレイヤーとして生き、その溢れる信念を一着のコスプレに託して闘った、最期の時代―幕末…[The last era in which an otomen lived as a cosplayer, placing his life and belief on a single costume…Bakumatsu]
I don’t think most of you know about this anime because this is such an old series, and not a hit anime. But just like Hakuouki, my 歴女 friend, and her friend(who is also my friend) really loves this anime. I just wanted to cosplay the hero, Akidsuki Youjiro[秋月耀次郎] again because I cosplayed him just once. Once I came to such a nice park which really goes well with Japanese costume, I had to do him, right? Well, the better point is, that this costume is still more comfortable than Saitou’s. I was sweating a lot, though.
I just thought Youjiro was my friend’s favorite, but I was wrong. Actually Sakyounosuke was her best. Oh no, he was voiced by Kousuke Toriumi[鳥海浩輔] whereas Youjiro was done by Daisuke Namikawa[浪川大輔]. At any rate, as I observed some of her favorite anime, I found out one thing. She tends to love such a cool samurai, and he must have something like a mission to fulfill. But at the same time, he must have remorse that he couldn’t make it in his past, so that is why he has to make it right this time. I am not too sure about 武士道[bushidou] or the spirit of samurai. If you love samurai, how do you like them?
Anyway, the photographer did a great job as usual. I was so pleased to cosplay him again! Please play the ED of the anime, 愛の剣[Ai no tsurugi].
月の灯り 影追うように 走るこの道
ならば いざ進め 混沌の時代の中へ
でも悲しみの日々 止めることも出来ず 壊れそうさ
今こそ 信じる道を まっすぐ進め！
