Yes we have all seen the horrid photos of when cosplaying, which is dressing up to match an anime or game character, goes wrong and results in an image burned into your brain you can’t forget. It’s always a very traumatic event when you see a 150kg Misty or ugly-as-sin Konata. Not to point any fingers but these generally tend to be american people and end up looking like this
However that said, I thought it would be a pleasant change to see what happens when both american, and japanese cosplay succeeds…
Oh and please correct me if any of the characters names I use are wrong, i’m doing my best to remember them all since its 2am right now. Oh and also i’ll update this again tomorrow since imageshack is being annoying and won’t let me edit this with more photos i’ve found. Buu
EDIT – Ok so it’s the next morning and like I said, i’m going to update this with some more awesome cosplay i’ve managed to find.
Yen Press revealed several covers of it’s monthly manga magazine Yen+ earlier this month. First issue today at most major bookstores. Now you can own the Soul Eater manga, even though they won’t release individual volumes of it till next year.
Upcoming Soul Eater avatar contest is going to take place within the next week. Look out for more information on how to enter on the forum.
It must be hard to be Death the Kid with his need for proper balence, everything being symmetrical, and perfection. Can’t appreciate that he has two females as weapons. That’s the well know idea around most humor with him. Too bad the humor isn’t funny, but it comes with being an adaptation of the manga. Must also be difficult to animate hands holding pistols that are upside down. There isn’t much happening in this series since it’s still in intro mode, but do take a minute to pause right at the part when the school’s big shot Shinigami comments on Death the Kids cute hair. Think about why he said that. If you read the manga, you know the answer perhaps? Episode 3 of Soul Eater has Death the Kid along with Patty and Liz trying to gather enough souls in one mission. Do get to see a weapon using a weapon as a necromancer witch tries to resurect a pharaoh.
Not so related question. Syd Barrett is a Soul Eater character, meaning someone is a Pink Floyd music fan?
Hopefully the introduction to what the anime is about after the opening will be removed or replaced after a few more episodes. It’s not really that different from the first episode. At least this episode wastes little time showing off Black Star. Gotta love his scythe nunchucks. They should make a real life collectable of it, as I don’t believe such a weapon has been crafted. Tsubaki must deep down regret being partners with that loud arrogant kid at some point of time. One thing though, hiding of one’s breath gives this team extra win points in cool concepts.
In summary, Black Star and Tsubaki picked up a mission where they are suppose to take out Al Capone, a mafia like guy who spent his time eating human souls. Al Capone and his gang pretty much continue on with their business to eat a soul of a witch named Angela. Notice the naming? Blair, too, in the first episode. If they succeed in preventing Al Capone from killing the witch and becoming a much bigger threat, Black Star can make Tsubaki a Death Scythe.
