posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

This year's fifth issue of Young Gangan magazine's cover girl is popular cosplayer Enako dressed as none other than Danmachi goddess Hestia. The collaborative gravure photos were taken to promote the theatrical release of Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion on February 15.

Enako appears in the magazine as Hestia and other "other world" style characters including a monster and a devil. Customers can get additional bromide prints of Enako in her Hestia cosplay with the purchase of Young Gangan magazine at Animate and Gamers stores. The magazine's official website has a wallpaper version available for download.

The Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion film opened in at least 43 theaters in Japan on February 15. Sentai Filmworks has licensed the film and will release it in U.S. theaters. The film's cast shared thoughts on the movie on February 8.

Enako is a top-tier cosplayer. She revealed on Abema TV in 2016 that she earns 300,000 to 400,000 yen (US$2,933-3,910) per stage event or over 1 million yen (US$9,776) a month.

She's the official cosplayer for the Science Adventure series (Steins;Gate, Robotics;Notes) and voiced the narrator in the Otona no Bōguya-san short television anime.

Apart from cosplay, Enako also formed the idol group Panache! with Akira Itsuki and Kuronekoin in 2012, although they disbanded the following year.
