Autumn has come. Maple leaves will be in full bloom soon…I shouldn’t miss this chance since this season really goes well with Hakouki or that sort of thing. I have challenged so many things this year; cosplayed with sakura, sunset, at the seashore, and devastation. However, this is the most challenging one, yes, that is a BL cosplay! One of my friends, Uo-chan who often helped my cosplays, requested me to cosplay Sekaiichi Hatsukoi[世界一初恋], so things started. Sekaiichi Hatsukoi is a BL comic made by Nakamura Shungiku who did Junjou Romantica. This series also has anime, and now 2nd season has been on the air. It’s really popular among BL fangirls. Uo-chan who claims to be a fujoshi, of course loves Sekaiichi Hatsukoi. She even said, I can’t live without this anime! Even though her favorite is Kisa who is a 30-year-old gay editor, I decided to cosplay him.
He is Takano Masamune[高野政宗], the head of Emerald Department in Marukawa publishing. The hero in this anime is Onodera Ritsu[小野寺 律] who starts to work at his department. Although he meets Takano for the first time, in fact they have already met before. Ritsu forgot about him, but Takano still remembers. Yes, they used to date when they were schoolboys. Takano is Ritsu’s first love…
First love is very sweet and sad. We say setsunai in Japanese. At any rate, I really wanted to cosplay this series, but just Takano has no meaning. So I asked my friend, Keith to cosplay Ritsu. I didn’t threaten him, no I didn’t threaten, I swear. Actually we have had a BL cosplay years ago, so this time, too. I grabbed his wrist, and we three went to the studio. Uo-chan worked as a photographer very well. However, she was blushing, and kept saying kyaaaa! Do more, do more!
We did some key scenes from this anime, especially the schooldays. I really like the scene in which Ritsu pays a visit Takano( it was Saga[嵯峨], his surname is changed because of his parent’s divorce). Ristu had a soft spot for him at first sight, and stalked…Finally Takano spoke to him and got to know each other. Ritsu looks too nervous to act naturally, which makes me laugh. I feel first love is good every time I watch this anime. Anyway, this cosplay is not for everyone. Please do not go further if you don’t like boys’ love. And make sure you check no one is behind you.
Ritsu: I am gonna get that one…
Ritsu: Aaagh! Damn it!
Takano: You, hopeless.
Takano: Let me handle this. Move.
Takano: Here you go.
Ritsu: T-Thank you.
Takano: It’s a piece of cake, you know. Let’s get out of here.
Takano: Hey, this line is wrong. Don’t you see it?
Ritsu: I will have them correct.
Ritsu: Why do I have to do this…
Ritsu: N-No…stop it, Takano-san…!
Takano: Do you know how long I have been waiting?
Saga: Wanna watch DVD?
Saga: Do you feel this?
Ritsu: Why is my chest being twisted just because sempai is looking at me?
Ritsu: Just he is smiling at me…why am I nearly crying…?
Saga: I love you, Ritsu.
Saga: Are you crying?
Ritsu: …I’m not…
