I believe I have a new hero.

Mr. Nagai please realize your dreams of a Moe-ified Shinozaki figure.

Though I do have to point out that was a cosplay of Great Mazinger not Mazinger Z.

I imagine his reaction is less due to the cosplay & more due to her being a human female in close proximity.

IIRC, he's a father, so he's been much closer to a human female before at least once Smile

I imagined the old man's reaction is replicated with every otaku in the crowd who were even further away. I don't blame them; they chose Shinozaki, and that was a win.

I always picture Go Nagai as being much older-looking. He still has some youth.

True. The article has been corrected.

Thanks for pointing this out.

True, but he's also a 69 year old man standing next to a model young enough to be his granddaughter wearing clothes that are not exactly accentuating her face, if you know what I mean.

edit: & I say that while well aware that I'd also be trying to look at anything else if I was on that stage.

Oh, Go Nagai.... If they ever remake Benny Hill for Japan, I hope they pick you as the lead. Laughing

That's old-fashionably cute. Surprised

I don't know about anyone else but even if I've done it a million times (although I have never) I would still be pretty uncomfortable being that close to the opposite sex, especially in an outfit like that. Anime smile + sweatdrop

Thanks to the Great Mazinger's simple design, it makes cosplaying as him a simple attempt as well. Smile Plus, I find the knight-themed design of Mazinger to be an epic sight.

[Insert standard she's hot/I wish I was married to her/double entendre comment] While she is taller, she has the body to cosplay as DanMachi's Hestia for promotional purposes.
