This is day 2 of my trip in Kyoto. The photoshoot lasted by 3:00 a.m., but we had to do check-out at 9:00 so all of us were too sleepy to wake up. Even that, we got ready quickly and set out for the cosplay event in Osaka[大阪]. The venue was the shopping mall named ATC (Atlantic Trade Center). It is the most famous cosplay venue in Osaka, and there were quite a few cosplayers.
After we changed, we shortly went outside to take photos. We all cosplayed Hakuouki, but the different thing is that we cosplayed Hakuouki SSL[Short Sweet Love], that the setting is school. You know, it’s a school-nized Hakuouki[学園化]. It’s not a fan-fiction, but officially released. Hijikata is a teacher, Chidsuru, Chidsuru, Heisuke, Saito, and Kazama are students. Saito is a prefect, and Kazama is the head student. Look at the arm badge on my left arm, which saying 風紀委員[fuki iin] meaning a prefect. It’s like Hibari Kyoya in Katei Kyoshi Hitman! Reborn.
We came to Osaka all the way from Tokyo, and cosplayed students and a teacher. It’s like 修学旅行[shugaku ryokou] or school excursion. In fact, I don’t like my real school excursion as I didn’t enjoy it at all. But…with my friends, of course I had fun!
Hikata-sensei: You guys, say cheese.
Hijikata-sensei: Hey, don’t play with Saito!
Saito: No snack inside school.
Chidsuru: Oh no, give me a break!
Hijikata-sensei: Yukimura, make sure you do it better from next time.
Chidsuru: Yes, sensei.
Chidsuru: So then, here you go!
Hijikata-sensei: Saito, why don’t you have fun with them?
Saito: I am fine.
Hijikata-sensei: Okay you guys, let’s take purikura [sticker]!
