News Nausicaä Cosplayers Win Japan WCS Round
posted on 2008-05-20 14:54 EDT
Japanese cosplay duo Hasse, which is composed of Kikiwan and Naoki Shigure, has won the Tokyo preliminary round of the 2008 World Cosplay Summit. Using costumes from Hayao Miyazaki's Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind, the two competed against nine other groups for the right to represent Japan at the August 3 international finals. Hasse also won last year's Japan round, when Hasse's costumes were Light and Misa from Death Note, and ultimately placed second in the final competition.
While the other 12 countries competing at the WCS will each contribute only one team, Japan is fielding two, with the second national qualifier set to be held in Osaka on July 13.
Thank you to Kumi Kaoru for the news tip.

Mike wonders aloud about what happened to all that ADV Films stuff that never made the jump from VHS to DVD. 2013-06-16
One of those blustery, everyone-
The Last of Us is about the thick skin we've built for ourselves and, underneath that, the places where we secret our hurt.
Underneath all the explosive polygons and proper nouns, Remember Me is a game that has no idea what it's actually about.
The ending of Jormungand has something important to say ... but never figures out the actual message.
Sunny is an interesting glimpse into the lives of children who feel that the world has forsaken them and how they manage to cope with the help of an old car and a little imagination.
Ultimately Missions of Love still reads like a sexy book for middle schoolers. Yukina is far from a likeable heroine, neither Shigure nor Akira come off as particularly desirable male leads, and the less savory elements of the story detract from its romance components.
The book's list of chapter titles holds nothing back in letting readers know what they're in for when they pick up this first volume: A Cat is Lost, A Cat Goes to the Vet, A Cat Plays, A Cat Is Home Alone, etc, etc. Rinse and repeat is the name of this kitty-
