My hobby is looking at photos of pretty cosplayers. While I was browsing a website with lots of cosplayers during a work break, I realized, once again, that there are actually so many extremely cute and high-quality cosplayers out there. Cosplay is not bound here in Japan, but there are countless cosplay photos posted from overseas. The hobby has been developing together with the Japanese anime and manga culture, and now it’s deeply appreciated in various countries overseas as a new form of entertainment.
This is exactly what POP really is!
KAI-YOU has been constantly pursuing POP. So far, we have discovered lots of incredible overseas cosplayers and we decided to get in touch with them for their permission to be featured, all to bring their attractiveness to the Japanese fans.
This time, we’d like to cast the spotlight on the cosplayer Raku from Taiwan. When I first saw her cosplay photo, I was super impressed with her skills. She looked exactly how Love Live! Sunshine!!’s Hanamaru Kunikida would look in real life.（external link）
All her cosplays look super cute: Flandre Scarlet (Touhou Project), Shimakaze (KanColle) and her original high schooler cosplay. Even more surprisingly, she cosplays as Ranko Kanzaki in a virgin-killer sweater… Alright, check all the maddeningly attractive photos of her below and get swallowed up by her cuteness!
──Could you let us know your favorite anime and manga?
I like Is the order a rabbit?, Touho Project, KanColle, Puella Magi Madoka Magica and NEW GAME!, among others!
──Are there any other things you like? Just anything, like food and music etc.
I like cute girls, crepes, and curry rice.
──Where do you wish to visit when you come to Japan?
Akihabara! But Kyoto would be nice too.
