It seems like I have had some new encounters lately. Actually, most of my cosplays this year were taken by new photographers. One of them is Muen Kashi who took me to the devastation. So what about this time? I got a newcomer again. In fact, my cosplay buddy introduced me to his friend. She is still a fresh cosplayer, but when I heard she wanted to cosplay Nodame Cantabile, I seriously wanted to speak to her. And yes, it came to pass.
If you have followed Noitamina timeslot anime series, you might know this anime. Although Nodame Cantabile is a shoujo manga, it has anime series and even a live-action drama series because it’s so popular. In short, it’s a love story between two piano students, but sometimes it becomes like a comedy, sometimes it gets so sweet. That is why it makes me watch over Nodame and Chiaki.
Anyway, this cosplay doesn’t count as “cosplay” because the costumes are too natural. But the Nodame cosplayer said, ”for me, cosplay is to act the character I cosplay. Not only wearing the costume, but we have to act!” I agree. Because I always enjoy acting the character. Our feeling is mutual.
Even though it was our first cosplay, she was great. She acted Nodame very well. It was like filming a live-action drama! Please let me confirm there will be part 2 because we want to copy the piano competition scene.
Nodame: Am I playing good?
Nodame: Chiaki-sempai, your eyelashes are very long!
Nodame: Can I take a nap with you?
Chiaki: Didn’t you enjoy yourself when you played at the competition?
Chiaki: I think that was your best playing.
Nodame: But I failed, though.
Chiaki: Why don’t we go to Europe together next year?
Nodame: Why should I do that? What’s wrong with playing as I like?!
Nodame: I would have a lot of glad things with you…
Chiaki: You should say that after you won the competition.
Nodame: A happy new year…
