[Intermission] 5th Anniversary

July 17, 2012 at 1:02 pm (cosplay(コスプレ))

 Hi everyone, I am doing alright. I must say sorry that I haven’t come here for a while, but say thank you for following my blog. Those who e-mailed me to make sure I am doing okay, thank you very much.

 To my surprise, it’s been 5 years since I started this blog. Time flies, it really does. I didn’t know how wonderful I could share my blog with you, and made friends here when I started this. Yes, thank you very much, I want to say from the bottom of my heart. When I was tired of having such a hard time, your comments or messages really helped me. That is why I could get through. As you may know, I am a cosplayer. Cosplayers are supposed to make people happy. I don’t know if I could do such a thing. Those who make me happy are you. I was helpless and useless, even now there is a time I feel I am useless. However, if there is only one person who likes my cosplays, I feel that a wreck like me has a meaning to live.

 Well then…I shall get ready for my anniversary! Where is my tie, suits…uh? Someone is coming.

(The bell is ringing) Who is it?

 Tedsuka: I am Captain Tedsuka from Seigaku Tennis Club [Prince of Tennis].

 Y-Yes, but I have never seen you in such a suit.

 Tedsuka: So you haven’t played Motto Gakuen no Ouji-sama[もっと学園の王子様], have you? It’s an otome game of PoT. Anyway, there is no time to explain. Get dressed now. Let’s go to the party together.


 I am Captain Tedsuka. Thank you very much for following my friends’ blog. I am sure he will keep cosplaying from now on. Please, go on being friends with him. I hope. For now, just say happy 5th anniversary.

Series: Prince of Tennis -Motto Gakuen no Ouji-sama-[テニスの王子様―もっと学園の王子様―]

Character: Tedsuka Kunimitsu[手塚 国光]

Cosplayer: bangin

Photographer: Hajime

    I haven’t seen you in a while but if you’re busy with real life I understand. I love all your cosplays and looking forward to seeing more! 🙂

    • bangin said,

      Thank you, Hinano. How are you doing? I am fine, and still cosplaying as you can see.^^
      Please keep in touch!

        Ewww he is so unclean. And he calls me a whore? My heart goes out to his wife can you imagine you wait your whole life to get married to a good Muslim family man …and she ended up with a dirty man that will give her an std!!!What pride Joseph will have in his fa#0;r&t823he.

    Glad to see that your blog is still alive, and hope that there will be more posts about Japanese language and culture.

    • bangin said,

      Thank you, yes I will be posting new words!^^

  3. Micchi said,

    Grats on the 5th anniversary, bangin-san! It’s always nice to see your new cosplay photos. Also, if you ever come upon slang words that you think we might not know, it’d be nice to see a short post on them if you have time. I’ve always found those very interesting. For example, you were the one that explained what π/ was!

    • bangin said,

      Hi Micchi, thank you for coming. Yes, you have been following…for long time. Thank you again.
      Haha, paisura, right?

  4. Avlor said,

    Wow. Congrats on cosplay blogging for 5 years! Tedsuka represented you well. /wink/

  5. ForgottenFane said,

    Congratulations on the 5th anniversary ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ / By the way,you have the same anniversary as Japanese band Versailles/

    • bangin said,

      Versailles? Is that a V-kei band?

      • ForgottenFane said,

        Yes, Versailles Philharmonic Quintet 🙂

  6. Arikoto Madenokoji said,

    I’ve followed your blog for quite a long time ^^ I really do like your posts and your cosplay projects. I’m a cosplayer too and I would be really pleased if you join the WorldCosplay community with us.

    • bangin said,

      Oh you cosplay Nana. Where is your Hachi?

      • Arikoto Madenokoji said,

        :)) Hachi will be with Nana in the next version ^^
        What do you think about my kimono furisode Nana Osaki? And the Midori Kobayashi (Norwegian wood)? And the latest – the Enma Ai kawaii version?

      • bangin said,

        That’s nice, and so is Jigoku Shoujo. 🙂

They kept us informed and even came into the store for cuppas, bless my hubby for making sure they were fed and watered. we then got back hem to Wolves and the town was crazy! It is just mindless thugs who don't realise its like pooing on your own door step and going hurt them more in the long run.You enjoy your evening hun.X x

    SQUEEEEE!! So Sexy!!

    I have so wanted to play POT dating sims but I my japanese is really bad.

    YAH!! More Tezuka!!!!! ❤ ❤ for Bangin!!

    CONGRATS for the 5 years of cosplaying!! I love seeing all your wonderful cosplays. Thank you for all your hard work!!

    • bangin said,

      Thank you always!
      You can pursue even Atobe-sama, but tell you what, the character design is not so good in this game.
      I just like Tedsuka in suit. In Tedsuka’s ED, you can climb the mountain with him, but his clothes is hideous.

    Congrats on the 5th anniversary! I love your cosplays~!

  9. Mardy_96 said,

    happy 5th anniversary, Bangin-san!!! Wow… it’s a wonder that time goes so fast. I still remember that you cosplayed as Takano-san in your last anniversary! Imagine that it’s been a year since that post… amazing, isn’t it? Thank you for bringing me happiness from your cosplay and wish you luck in whatever you do in life.^^

    • bangin said,

      Yes, Mardy it was Takano-san who cerebrated my 4th anniversary. A year passed…yes, it’s amazing. At least you are following my blog for a year. Arigatou!

      • Loree said,

        Oye y de los yates ¿han dicho algo?Estoy harta ya de tributar por ellos, más que nada por la molestia de mi secretario, hombre, que el pobre también tiene derecho a desaansar.Scludos ricos, ricos.

  10. hazukiotome said,

    Oh…Tezuka and in a suit!
    Your cosplay is lovely as always
    The last picture was a really nice treat! LOL

    • bangin said,

      Thank you very much!^^

  11. Miki said,

    Wah!! Tezuka sempai!! I am so happy you cosplayed my favourite Tenipuri character. ^^ funny thing, I actually started playing this game about a week ago and Tezuka was the first guy I got the ending for. ^^ Trying to pursue Oishii now

    • bangin said,

      I am sure you will laugh so bad at Oiishi’s ending.^^ I also like Sanada.

  12. Twinks said,

    Happy 5th Anniversary Bangin! Thank you for sharing your cosplay photos and Japanese words and phases with all of us. I enjoy reading your posts. Thank you for being a part of my life. 🙂

    I’m glad you are continuing to blog and cosplay. I wish you many more happy blogging and cosplaying years ahead. 🙂

    • bangin said,

      Thank you very much, Twinks. Are you speaking from UK?

      • Jerry said,

        Too many coitmlmenps too little space, thanks!

  13. Twinks said,

    By the way, that’s a nice location you cosplayed in. Where is it?

    Oh, and you/Tedsuka look very dapper in that suit. 🙂

    • bangin said,

      This is a certain studio in Tokyo. It’s EASE Tsunajima.

  14. rozzu said,

    Happy 5th Anniversary !!!
    OMG….. cooooolllll….coooollll…. i like suit…. awesome weiii…. XD

    • bangin said,

      Ahaha, thank you very much.^^

  15. Reia Scarler said,

    I just found out about your blog and I must say that I really like it!
    I love both of your post about Japanese slangs and your cosplays!
    Keep up the good work and congrats on the fifth anniversary of your blog!

    • bangin said,

      Thank you for coming! Yes, please come anytime!

  16. Filip said,

    I’ve dropped by, without much hope for a new post, and then this! I can’t believe it’s the next anniversary already! Love the the cosplay btw, there are some absolutely perfect shots.
    And listen here… Whatever happens, don’t feel useless. Don’t feel like a wreck. You are a smart, handsome guy running a quality cosplay blog, and you have FANS. As in FANGIRLS. So think about it when you feel down.
    So, I guess, happy 5th anniversary! : ) Keep it up!

    • charana said,

      TRUE TRUE! You have fans, many people who like you, and I’m sure you have people who still like you even when they know of the side of yourself that you don’t show much of.

      Happy 5th anniversary!

      I showed a friend these set of pictures and she said ‘Are you sure that they just didn’t draw that picture of him?’ Pretty much said that you look just liek that guy in the drawing.

      Smile ok!
      smile smile smile

      • bangin said,

        Haha, thank you.^^
        Is your friend an anime fan, too?

    • bangin said,

      Thank you Filip. How is your summer in Poland? Thank you for always dropping by. Please come anytime although I hardly blog here. I wish I could. Thank you always. Love, bangin.

      • Filip said,

        Any time ; ) I just think you need to be reminded of these things once in a while. And I have really, REALLY grown fond of this blog, so there’s no way I would stop checking on it.
        This summer is freakishly hot, but otherwise pretty good, thanks. Like every year I’m making promises to myself that next summer I will spend in Japan, haha. Ha.

        On completely different note, I know it’s mainly cosplay blog, but I kind of miss your words posts. They were very interesting and useful.

  17. ponytale said,

    Bangin-san, happy 5th anniversary! *hugs* \(^-^)/

    Whatever you’re going through I hope you come out of it stronger, happier and become an even more beautiful person than you already are!

    And you don’t just look handsome in a suit cosplaying Tedzuka in this lovely set of photos you shared with us… you ARE him!

    Please keep amazing us with your magic! Here’s to many more fantastic years of fruitful and happy experiences and cosplays!

    • bangin said,

      Oh ponytale, thank you for coming. What are you following now? I am always behind, you know. So maybe I would cosplay Utapuri two or three years later! XD
      Wish I could see the next comiket!

      • ponytale said,

        My pleasure, Bangin-san! 😀 Hmm, I wonder who from utapuri would you cosplay? 😀

        I’m currently following Sword Art Online (I like the concept), Kuroko no Basuke (sports action and fujoshi bait ^^;;) and Shirokuma Cafe (male seiyuu heaven + I love the quirky animals). Don’t have time for more but would love to watch Natsuyuki Rendezvous when I can.

        Although you said you probably leave T&B and KnB to the “younger cosplayers” but never say never 😉 Life surprises us in fun and unexpected ways (maybe during the next comiket…) XD

      • bangin said,

        I would cosplay Tokiya because I like him the most. Currently, Utapuri is too popular to cosplay! When it gets cool down, I would do.
        Oh Sword Art Online, my friends are following, too. Kurobasu is also the most popular. Most of my cosplay friends are doing either Midorima or Kise.

  18. Dream said,

    *squeals* HAPPY 5TH ANNIVERSARY!!! w<)8'' Love ya! I hope to see more in the future ^^ Keep up the great work~

    Tezuka…in a suit…….too lovely *fainting fangirl*

    Keep doing what you love to do ❤

    • bangin said,

      Soon you’ll see Atobe in a suit!

      • tasukihoneybunny said,

        Atobe in a suit….
        A guy after my own Fujoshi heart! ❤ ❤
