[Cosplay] SLAM DUNK

March 6, 2012 at 2:07 pm (cosplay(コスプレ))

 It’s still freezing in Japan, but I am sure Spring will come soon and we’ll see cherry blossom in full bloom. I am doing alright. I always say the same thing, but I am sorry that I haven’t come here for long. Okay, let’s start.

 My friend and I paid a visit the abolished school last month. Yes, it was a cosplay event. Even at such an abolished school, a cosplay event happened. You know, cosplayers have been more serious in taking better pictures. If you cosplay a student character, the best location would be school. So what if you cosplay a basketball player? Yes, the best location would be a gym. So I cosplayed him.

 He is Rukawa Kaede[流川 楓] from Slam Dunk. If you have seen this anime, you might be around the same age as me. Ask anyone basketball series, or most people would mention this anime. Slam Dunk was aired from 1993 to 1996, and it has 101 episodes. The comics are translated and published in many countries. Maybe you could find it by your language. What is so special in this anime? So many good-looking boys? No, you could feel as if you were watching a real basketball game even when you read this comic. Of course, you can see how wonderful the friendship is, and enjoy the real basketball drama.

 Rukawa doesn’t speak at all. He is always smart while he is playing. He and the hero Sakuragi Hanamichi hate each other, but actually inside they are mutually trusting.I really like the way they are because I have never been a basketball player. I am just an indoor geek, you know. I wish I could be a sport guy. My friend, Hajime-san and I love Slam Dunk, so we really had fun in having a photoshooting at this place. Even though so many cosplayers were inside the school, almost no one was in the gym. Hajime tried a lot of angles from lower to upper. It was freezing because I was wearing just a basktball uniform. But I didn’t care. The better location, the more exciting. Actually, we had a Slam Dunk cosplay before. It was at the abolished school as well, but there were too many cosplayers to take pictures. So we could do our best, we really did.


Just the way you are, our days are always going on…

Just the way you are…
